Pug-Tastic


Another day, another pug themed outfit. Another day, another hair colour. You may notice (especially if you're more observant than my dad!) that my hair has changed colour...But don't get too attached. This is just a semi-permanent base before putting a permanent dye on. It's so complicated...if I only hadn't dyed my hair purple 10 years ago!

Now on to the outfit, I wanted something simple for the hairdressers so that I wouldn't be too upset if I got hair dye on it. Also, if you wear anything knitted, you end up with sharp ends of hair cutting into you for days after! So, a nice simple denim shirt dress with a pug scarf to jazz it up!

I thought I'd feature my little sister's cute top from Tee Fury featuring a Dr. Who/Disney cross-over!

A Whale of a Time


I couldn't resist a whale-themed pun and this gorgeous whale-print cardigan is definitely worth one! My nephew loves a good whale print and being the style icon that he is, I had to follow his lead. I've tried to give the cardi a vintage feel with a lacy top and brogues.

Necklace: White Stuff (matching bracelet)

Of course, I couldn't resist featuring my nephew in his stylish whale print hat!

Pugs


As most people who come into contact with me know, I love animals but I especially love pugs. More than anything! My room is dotted with pug themed presents that lovely friends have bought me and my wardrobe is stuffed with pug-tastic clothes like this gorgeous dress!

A Weekend Away


I went away for the Bank Holiday Weekend with my parents to a gorgeous Yorkshire village called Slingsby. We were in the caravan and situated by lots of lovely farms and countryside. I got to meet lots of horses, dogs and other animals including this beauty!

Matching gilets, wine and smiles!
On the Saturday morning, Dad woke up super early and went for a cycle. Mum & I slowly woke up and drove into the nearby town Helmsley for coffee and then onto the gorgeous Yorkshire Lavender! The smell was divine and there were lots of bees and butterflies flying around.

On Sunday, we went for a walk and (surprise!) I made friends with a gorgeous horse. In the afternoon, Dad and I went off for a cycle ride, where I rode 9 miles! It was lots of fun even if I came back a bit muddy and sore!

On our final full day, we had a gorgeous pub lunch! Goats cheese veggie lasagne and strawberry cheesecake for afterwards. I fell into a food coma afterwards. But a well-deserved one as I'm back in my old jeans size!

Purring Cats


What a perfect way to start a blog post! With a reluctant cat! I think Zorro needs to work on his modelling skills. He's not really a people cat but I thought he had to be included in a cat themed post.

This will be the last post for a few days as I'm going away for the Bank Holiday weekend. I'll be back on Tuesday with a bumper blog post of outfits.






Both earrings were presents: the cat face from the lush Sally and the cat from my grande soeur, Lucy!

A Sailing Puffin


One of the many things I love about having an animal inspired wardrobe is that certain pieces remind me of my gorgeous friends. I love being able to wear a jumper and think of that friend all day. My wonderful friend, Jess adores puffins and so this jumper is my love for her garmently shown!



Nautical earrings for my puffin captain!

Foxes and Rabbits


Hello from Sometimes Sunny Leeds! 
After eight wonderful years in Bristol, I've moved back to Yorkshire to enjoy more of their pudding and terriers. And to spend more time with my cat who wakes me up by coming to my second floor window! 
Though I do miss Bristol, I'm loving my new life in Leeds with my family. I've even found some yoga classes. Whilst I'm here, I'm going to be temping and then come September 2015, I'll hopefully be starting a Social Work Masters. Exciting times.
I have a new photographer as well. The bloke is no longer my bloke and so my little sister has taken over behind the lens. We're hoping to take all the photos outside, come rain or shine, to show off our beautiful Yorkshire.

But enough about my life and more about my clothes! Mum and I went to York McArthur Glen Outlet last weekend, which not only has a Joules but a White Stuff! I was very excited to see this gorgeous fox and rabbit print tunic, which I thought I'd missed out on the first time round. If you're ever in the York area, I'd definitely pop in for a look.
