30 Day Snap #25 | The Great Outdoors


Aloha Sprinklerinos,

Confused as to what The 30 Day Snap is? Read THIS to be in the loop and join in.

Grass and Buttercups

I've said it before and I'll say it again, I'm an Autumn/Winter girl. I like thick knits, cosy fires, rain on the window and the promise of Christmas. I find Summer to be a chore, constant worrying about fatty bits showing, being to hot, flies getting in through open windows etc. 

This Summer though, I'm coming round to it. I'd developed a love for 3/4 length skirts and I've been embracing the great outdoors more. Annnddd by 'great outdoors' I mean, this short grass with buttercups in. That's about as wild as I can manage!

How have you been getting on? Who else's 30 Day Snaps are you enjoying? 




Toodlepip!

  1. I used to love summertime, being from the south you kind of have to or you're going to always be miserable. But as I've grown older, and we found out my little sister was allergic to the sun (one of the many lovely side effects of chemo) I can't stand summertime. But because you're trying I too will try my best to embrace the heat! I love your shoes, by the way!

  9. I would love the summer, if the sun ever decided to appear during the day and not in the evening! *fingers crossed* it appears for the beach tomorrow! The joy of buttercups is so innocent and unique.. I am sure Baby Glitter must love them!

  20. I feel exactly the same way about summer as you, Louise, I dread it each year. I'd much prefer wearing cosy clothing than worrying about what I'm wearing etc.

  22. I am the opposite! I live for the spring and summer! I really dislike the cold weather, however I do feel like winter and fall still have many cute clothing options!

    Yesterday I started on a health kick!
    Today I went grocery shopping!

  28. Hi Louise! Loving the shoes :) can you do a post in the future about how to look after bleached hair/keeping it in good condition? It would be really useful, would help me and probably quite a few other blondies! Loving the glittersnaps :D

  29. I feel you, I'm also an autumn or winter girl and my friends being all summer girls, I always get weird looks from them but that's what it's like.
    Nothing better than sitting inside with a cup of tea and a good book while there's a thunderstorm outside.

  30. Aww I'm glad you're coming around to the Summer weather.

    I definitely love some cozy indoors, hot chocolate, and watching the rain from inside....but being out in the sun is like no other. So refreshing to see clear skies and bask in the sun :) I love your flats!

  36. I love Summer! But I do have to agree with you on the issue of fatty bits/cellulite bits showing. It's so hard to find dresses of an appropriate and comfortable length. I'm 5'10" so dresses tend to be shorter on me. Loving this series!

  38. You sound exactly like me, I much prefer autumn and winter to summer. I just don't like the heat to be honest. I know it's not so horrible in the UK, but 90 fe is horrid to deal with everyday. I adore you shoes though

  40. I'm still in Winter mode!Hoping I'll get excited for Summer soon!
    Every time I put my jumper on because it looks chilly, the sun comes out and when I put my summer dress on, it pours with rain! Good old British weather I guess!
    Least you are getting some sun though :)

  41. I like that picture! The green, yellow, pink and the shoe colour(i don't know what colour is that, peachy? light pink? nude?) anyways they all go together ver well.
    I love Autumn, Spring and Winter. I do like summer but not when extremely warm. I prefer to stay home in summer time.

  58. Nice article !
    Shoes mustn't only be durable however they have to be good looking. There are such a big amount of brands wherever you'll get good shoes but you cannot find variety in them.
