Umbrella Weather!

As if it knew about my recent umbrella brooch purchase, the weather in my fair city has erupted into overcast skies and drizzle. I love the lushness that rain brings – it makes all of my favourite evergreen parks look even more wonderful! During a pause in the rain, we quickly ventured to my favourite place ever; the ‘secret park’ as I like to call it. You know by now just how much I love visiting ducks, and today were even greeted by a Labrador swimming in the river – I don’t know which of us looked more startled! The flowers are looking so incredible at the moment. There is a flower festival early next month; and I am definitely hoping for a ticket. What girl doesn’t love flowers? Especially after the Valentines rush!

I combated the puddles with my grey ASOS brogues. My dress and brooch were both vintage. I don’t usually wear much red, but have recently become hooked on matching it to my ruby lipstick. My hair was plaited into a Heidi braid – the perfect way to battle the ever-looming rainy day frizz!

  1. I know it’s your ‘secret’ park, but you must let us know sometime where that is, because that is the most beautiful-looking place I have ever truly seen! It looks just so incredibly dreamy!
