Introducing The Ring of my Dreams!

I’m seeing red today – in a good way of course! Perhaps it’s the ever-looming St Valentines approaching, but I can’t seem to get enough of scarlet shades. This love isn’t just limited to clothing either, and has bubbled over into my jewellery selection too. The wonderful folks at Boticca recently sent me a fox ring – perfect for my new obsession! Though the ring isn’t strictly red, the breed of fox is; and that counts for something! Designer Emilie Thomas captured the whimsical expression so perfectly, and I feel complete happiness when I look at my hand and see my new foxy friend looking back at me! I am a huge fan of foxes; if you hadn’t noticed from the header (!) so I truly couldn’t ask for a prettier piece of jewelry!

We spent the day running errands and visiting pretty gardens. I’m delving back into the world of full-time employment next week, so am certainly making the most of my final days of freedom! I’m slightly fascinated by almost all forms of creepy crawlies, so Barnaby and I actually spent our afternoon taking photographs of bees! They were flying from flower to flower, and looking so intent on their duties; Barnaby captured it so perfectly. Meanwhile, I frolicked through the garden, wearing a vintage wine red dress and bowler, Foot Traffic tights, and of course; the beautiful Boticca ring!

  3. these are the most magical photos…reminds me of a mix of Alice in Wonderland…and Little Rad Riding Hood. You’re so pretty in a ‘different era’ sort of way…like classic beauty I guess. The kind that makes you double take someone:).

    Love your style.

  5. Wow. This shade of red looks absolutely wonderful of you. I love the monochrome look of your outfit, with the exception of your houndstooth tights which are actually an awesome addition to your look! Fabulous! You so look the part for Valentine’s Day. Lol.
