Summer morning dog walks

It’s so great having the sun out most days, I know it is currently getting scorching hot in the UK but early morning can be quite chilly.

The other day we went over the fields with the dog for a little walk. I decided instead of grabbing my Hunters I wanted my converse, colourful jeans and my Joules quilted jacket jacket.

The jacket is quite fitted and is quite light but at the same time keeps you snug and warm.  It seems to be the ideal candidate for the in between seasons.

I’m a big fan of the quilting and it feels ideal for dog walking! There is touches of soft corduroy on the cuffs and the flaps of the pockets, but I think my favourite detail is the rustic looking buttons… oh and the bunny rabbit of course!

 I love the fact this is a very British brand and it almost makes me want to go horse riding?!  I’m not sure why but it really oozes that vibe about their clothing.

Even though the jacket looks quite simple on the outside, there are hints of feminine charm on the inner lining of a cheeky floral print. Adding to this is the fabric on the tab of the zip, which is in a gorgeous fuchsia pink that adds to its cute charm.  The jacket is currently in the sale for a bargain of £59.95 instead of £89.95.

This particular jacket is no longer in stock but there are many similar, including a black one and ones with hoods, which are perfect companions for the typically British weather. 

If you’re after something similar have a look at the following;

 Olly even dressed for the occasion showcasing is gorgeous Creative Creatures Bone Stud Collar.  It has little bones around it and I personally think the red works so well with his black and white coat… what do you think?

  I know he’s quite pleased with it!  We can 100% spot him a mile off as it’s so statement! 

Look at him being all fashionable and cool!

Apparently it was a good long walk because the little Olly Bobs was absolutely exhausted…

 I am finding whilst the summer is here I am walking a lot more, anyone else finding that? It’s so good to be outdoors and having a dog allows me to do that… especially one as excitable as Olly!

    Haha I know! He doesn't like dog coats and refuses to wear them… Think it comes from when he was a puppy and we made him wear a Santa coat!
