Save it for a rainy day...

As I mentioned in yesterday's post I've been enjoying the fresh air lately, taking long daily walks with my camera and I certainly haven't let the rubbish weather stop me. Instead I have jumped into my Hunter's with a smile since every drop of rain justifies me buying them, put on a warm jacket, finger less gloves (the amateur photographer's best friend!) and with a massive tumbler of hot chocolate I have braved the elements. After you've been outdoors it's so lovely having a nice bath with some lovely oils to relax and heat you up from the inside out, and then snuggle up in front of the TV with something yummy - after all, you have just had a long and very tiring walk! Today I've put together some outfits that might inspire you to join in a daily walk, or at least you can use that as an excuse to buy something new and cute, and it doesn't get much cuter than this owl dress.

New Look Fur Trim Hooded Parka £49.99 // Hunter Tall Glitter Wellies £46.75 // Dorothy Perkins Black Owl Dress £24 // Etsy Camera Bag £30.12 // Accessorize Chunky Waffle Gloves £7 // Starbucks Hammered Tumbler in Rose Gold £14.95
 ASOS Sweatshirt with Lady and the Tramp £30 // Next Brushed Back Lounge Pants £20 // Aromatherapy Associates Miniature Bath Oil Collection £32 // Jo Malone London Rain White Jasmine Cologne £82 // Lily-Flame Mellow Figs and Garden Mint Scented Tin £8.50 // Michel Cluizel Chocolate Macaroons £7.19

It's so much fun creating mood boards like this and I really hope you liked the outfits. If there's a specific theme for a mood board you'd like me to do, please let me know in the comments section below, or tweet me (@makupbcandlelit). In a couple of hours it's wellie time again for me - Bring it on rain, Hunter and I are ready for you!

  18. That bottle of the Jo Malone scent is really beautiful; I don't think I've ever seen it before. Hmmm...I do have similar boots and a parka, and I was thinking of wearing them until I realized that I live in San Diego. Never mind. :-P Chic and Alluring

  23. Such a nice idea for a post. I love braving the elements for a walk, as I live in the countryside, it seems silly not to take full advantage of it! Wellies are a must though! xx
