In the Sticks


A couple of weekends ago I drove up to my parents for a visit and thought it would make an excellent photo opportunity as I don't think I've really featured where I'm from too much on my little blog.

As some of you know, I'm originally from North Yorkshire but moved to live in the city of Manchester after I finished my degree in Birmingham.

I often post bits about thrift finds in the nearby towns of Settle and Skipton but I don't think I've posted much about the tiny little hamlet I'm from- and why would I? There's nothing there!

I don't really dress up much when I'm back at home as it generally isn't appreciated by the sprinkling of farmers and village folk I bump into.

On this visit, I thought it would be a good excuse to show off my new charity shopped faux fur coat (yet another to add to the collection!) I picked up in Manchester for a very reasonable £16.

Pictured with my gorgeous Jack Russell, Molly!

I'm wearing it with my new playsuit from Motel. I've had my eye on this style for a while so was very pleased to see it crop up at half price in their sale!

The floral print on it is absolutely gorgeous. You can't see, but it also has a cool cut-out back detail.

Here's some pictures of my surroundings. I'm no photographer and it was a pretty miserable day but you'll get the idea!

Have a great week!





  1. Your dog is so adorable. And he looks just like my dog. Adore the faux fur coat, I'm on the look out for a new one x

  2. Wow, what a bargain coat! Such beautiful surroundings, it all looks so picturesque!!
