At last we seem to be getting some regular warmer (or should I say milder) weather – it makes walking the dog so much more pleasant.
I can’t wait for longer walks in the sunshine now that we’re into May (my favourite month)!
And I won’t deny it… Any excuse to try and get Riley into a photo shoot is a valid excuse, though to be honest he really wasn’t playing ball this time.
(I don’t know why I said that – he NEVER plays with a ball. Ever. He’s far too aloof/chilled/lazy for ball games, though that’s probably because he thinks he’s a human…!)
Normally if I don’t want him in shot he stands right next to me and poses for all he’s worth without leaving my side. THIS time I wanted him in the shot but he wouldn’t face Keith, instead giving the camera the most delightful view of his backside – he absolutely refused to turn and face the front.
In the end we just went with the close up shots where he at least faced the camera once or twice (please don’t judge me for looking like I’ve got my dog in a vice-like strangle hold, I really haven’t!)… and I really mean just once or twice. I’m finding out that having an Instagram Dog is a lot tougher than having an Instagram Husband – at least the husband cooperates for treats, Riley just takes them and still doesn’t cooperate!
SHOP THE LOOK:
Anyway this is a simple mid-week summery outfit kindly gifted to me by the lovely people at Seasalt – talk about appealing to my colourful side! It’s a little bit country chic, a little bit preppy and a little bit seasidey… Have you ever seen a more cheerful stripey top? I have a feeling I’ll be wearing these pieces with all sorts of things this summer.
I’ve been looking for some plain red trousers for a while and these are so comfy (and 100% linen) – and as regular readers know I’m a bonafide hat girl, so this straw “skipper” hat is perfect for my summer wardrobe.
I’ll be talking more about Seasalt in some upcoming posts throughout the year, so watch this space for more on that very soon…!
