the sun has got his hat on..

sandals: matalan // hat: marks and spencer (gift)
playsuit: clothing at tesco
cardigan: new look
I love this set of photos. I think it's partly down to the fact that I took them of one of my favourite camp outfits, following a frankly fantastic week of camping. The weather was amazing, (I was pleased to come back with a bit of a tan)as was the chance to have a week away from the normality - I don't tend to take a lot of time off, as I really like my job, but when I do, it can be nice to have a change.

I was rather busy all week, running back and forth to the flat to collect food before breakfast, and running round with a rather fancy (borrowed) camera for the week, taking photos for PR and to produce a daily newsletter. I think I really do want a DSLR camera now that I've spent most of the week using one, having not been too bothered about upgrading my camera in the past.

I picked up this playsuit in Tesco recently. I think it's actually supposed to be a beach cover-up as it's quite thin cotton, but not too see-through that I couldn't wear it for day-to-day. I really favoured playsuits and shorts this week, and seem to have fallen into the midst of a bit of a love affair with hats. Which is definitely a good thing, as I have such a collection of pretty hats which do not get worn enough. I really want to get into the habit of wearing them.

This one is one of my favourites ever. My lovely sister bought it for me on one of our sister-shopping-trips and I just couldn't get over how awesome it was. It's straw but overlayed with polka dot ribbon, and it just makes me smile. Here's hoping for some more sun so I get to wear it more. I'm supposed to be off to the beach at the weekend - sun, please!

In other news, I drew the winner of my Hunter Wellies giveaway today, and am pleased to announce that a pair will be on their way to Rebecca shortly. Thank you to all for entering and keep an eye out because I'm planning a blog swap in the near future if anyone fancies it..


  1. Yaaaay, I'm so happy to have won the wellies! I reckon you could've done with them at camp though, aha. You remind me of a safari explorer here (: xx

  2. Great outfit char, that hat is fabulous.

    Congratulations on your win Rebecca.

  3. I love this playsuit! It's definitely time for me to do my quarterly hunt through the clothing on the Tesco website, then.


  4. I haven't been brave enough to try a play suit, this looks fab, I love it paired with that cardigan. Its strange how adding a cardigan can make an item seem less daunting to wear.
    I like your hat too, I've just purchased my first ever sun hat (just before my spending ban kicked in!)
    Great outfit all round.

  5. You look so summery, love it :)

  6. Cute playsuit ;) Where is the side table from? officially in love!

    1. Hi, do you know of a shop called Octopus? That's where the table is from :)
