A Boxing Day walk



It has to be said - I'm not much of an outdoorsy type. I'd rather be snuggled at home with a cup of tea than roaming around in fields - but as today was Boxing Day I decided to put on my 'sensible' boots and venture into the countryside with my family. I had no idea that the place we visited existed - it's amazing what you can find on your doorstep really!

Anyway, it provided many opportune outfit-photo spots - although I really hate posing for photos with my family behind the lens.

The walk was an excellent chance for me to wear my new thrifted coat. It's made from wool so its ultra warm! The sleeves needed to be taken in a bit to stop it swamping me, but apart from that it was a bargain at £15.

I need to stop buying coats...



I hope you all had a lovely Christmas! My parents gave me my own sewing machine! I can't wait to get started on my next project :D.

Only $15 for that gorgeos coat! Love your make-up too. A sewing machine is the best present, since I've already got one I've got knitting pattern books :D

Such a lovely outfit! very country bumpkin :)
I agree with the staying in with a cup of tea, always a better decision than getting cold!
