Dresses to dress up and down!

24 Feb, 2016

Yesterday I was sat in our sunny dinning room daydreaming about spring. I’m not a massive fan of winter and being cold, so a little bit of warmth is definitely welcome! But then I realised that after I Marie Kondoed my wardrobe I basically only have a winter wardrobe so I really need to address my spring fashion collection.

I have two main values when it comes to my wardrobe…

1. To keep it simple (too much choice stresses me out!)

2. To love everything in it

So I’m aiming to buy a few key pieces for spring that I love, and that I can dress up and down! Here’s a few suggestions…

Easy Spring Fashion – Dresses

I love wearing dresses – probably owing to the months while Breastfeeding when I couldn’t wear them! – so I’ve pulled together a little wish list from my new favourite online fashion inspiration site, Lyst. It’s got some really neat ideas for fashion dunces like myself and takes you straight to the site so you can buy the items you love. Here are my favourite dresses for some easy spring fashion to dress up and down.

I’m into my 3rd week and my 20 hour ski challenge and I’m loving it! The only barrier now is my own fear. With my lovely instructor at the Silksworth Sports Complex, Lesley, on her way to Austria as we speak, I’m braving it alone. But more to come on that later in the week. I have something equally as important to talk about today…Winter Fashion and my ski gear from Protest, which you will have a chance to win! Scroll to the bottom of the post for all the information.

Mums' Days Reviewers - Laura C

26 Oct, 2015

With the weather on the turn it’s the perfect time to be getting out the woolies. Mums’ Days Reviewer, Laura C, has been reviewing the My Little Duckling’s Willowdream Hat.

Here’s what she thought…

My Little Duckling Review - Mums' Days Reviewers

Review – My Little Duckling’s Hat

Quality – ★★★★☆

Price – ★★★★★

Overall – ★★★★★

We were sent a hat by ‘My Little Duckling’ to review and I cannot have been more delighted with it. The most important thing to note is that this hat is beyond cool: it is basically a little ‘pilots’ hat complete with ear flaps, goggles and a mini flight badge. We have received numerous compliments when wearing it with many people wanting to know where to find them. It seems that all have agreed that it is very cute! (more…)

I don’t know about you but I’m feeling Autumnal. I love the big knits, comfy jeans, and no need for a massive coat just yet – it’s the season casual clothing was made for!

Because I work from home, it’s not uncommon for me to work in my PJs. However, as a school run mum, I need casual clothing that is passable for when I undoubtably forget it’s time to go and get my son.

My clothes need to be comfortable but acceptable for another human to see me in and autumnal casual clothing is perfect for this. (more…)

A few weeks ago, Reuben and I were invited to visit the boutique Pikku, which is a gorgeous clothing shop and hair salon for little ones. Based in Gosforth, it’s dead easy for us to get to and park near, so we jumped at the chance. Not least because Reuben could no longer see past his fringe and needed some serious help in the hairstyles department!
