Outfit // It's Not Easy Being Green

I'll be honest, I wasn't sure if I should post these photos or not. Don't get me wrong, I loved the outfit, but I just don't love the photos... I'm not even sure why I don't like them - it might be the over abundance of green or it might be that I'm not used to posting outfits that are so casual, I'm really not sure but here they are! This outfit was very comfortable, it almost felt like a day out in my pyjamas but with much more style (and, trust me, that is never a bad thing).

I bought the playsuit second hand off of eBay and when it arrived it was Kermit frog green, not my favourite colour! Rather than getting rid of it I chucked it into a dye bath and turned it into a deep teal, now I love it.

10 things that have made me happy this week

This week has been a pretty big one for me with some very exciting things happening! Let's get straight to all the excitement:

  1. Getting engaged! Mark planned out the most amazing proposal (and picked out an amazing ring) - details to follow, watch this space!
  2. Securing tickets to go see Hamilton while we are in San Fransisco next year!
  3. Charlie the Choo-Choo arriving in the mail.
  4. Wrapping all of the Christmas presents and putting them under the tree - I felt a tiny bit of my usual Christmas spirit returning!
  5. Glancing down at my hands and seeing my ring at odd times - makes me smile every time (yes, I'm in a bit of a sappy mood this week!)
  6. Giving the bunnies their papaya tablets (to keep their digestion all running smoothly while they moult) - they get so excited to gobble them down and it's adorable!
  7. Hidden Mickey nails.
  8. Cuddles with Akela - he was in a sooky mood yesterday and I loved every minute of it! 
  9. Starting to look at all the first wedding details: Honeymoon ideas (Disney World is looking like a possibility at this point), theming (again with Disney - don't tell me you're surprised!) and colour schemes... All very exciting!
  10. Watching movies with my classes on my last work day - such an easy and enjoyable way to finish of the working year.

Outfit: Zootopia

 When I get new things I usually want to wear them right away so I'll try and build an outfit around that item. Sometimes it takes ages to find the right combination and sometimes it all just falls into place. This was one of those outfits that just fell into place and I couldn't be happier with the way it turned out. This outfit was so comfortable and I felt so confident in this silhouette - It's definitely one I'll be looking at wearing again and again! Add to this the quirky bunny print and it's the skirt dreams are made off. I paired my perfect skirt with a fox print scarf and cute knit, running the burgundy in the scarf through the outfit with a little cardigan for the cooler parts of the day. Let's talk about this little jumper shall we, it's a nice muted pink colour but it has little sparkles through the fabric and the cute details in the sleeve just add a little something extra - classic but with an added quirk, exactly how I like my clothes!
