Baby knits…


Marks and Spencer’s £16

Although I mourn the summer I do so love babies wrapped up all snugly and gorgeous in their winter woollies. This set is also beautiful as are these booties and these (which also come in this colour). I love this cardigan, this romper from John Lewis, this one piece from Gap (in vanilla and navy) and this cardigan (in all colours). This is super cute from La Redoute (and they still have 25% off at the minute) as is this and this.

Autumn babies (0-3)…


1. Dress and tights outfit £23

2. Boden Cable Knit Cardigan £22.50

3. Next Boot £10

Is it bad that I am getting excited for the autumn clothes already? All the berry colours and the cosy fabrics. However, the weather doesn’t seem to be playing and has suddenly hotted up! A cable knit cardigan is a must and will go with so many other items in your little ladies wardrobe, cosy and cuddly what’s not to love? I love ready made sets. A whole outfit without having to think about what goes with what. La Redoute are amazing at this. Others I love on their site include this one, this one and this one and there is a fabulous 25% off with code NEW at the minute, so these are total bargains. Marks and Spencer’s also do beautiful sets, including this one and this one and any of the ones I posted about previously within this post.

P.S; Remember there is also 20% off at Boden till Thursday night (8th) with the code 6B4B.

P.P.S; How cute is this cardigan?

2. Mango Slim Fit Jeans £22.99

3. Mango Ethnic Fringe Bag £19.99

4. Boden Mary Jane’s from £34.50

I opened my Autumn 16 Next catalogue today and the above Chambray blouse was on the first page, it was love at first sight. I quickly checked that it went up to the bigger girl sizes and for once it actually does! Whoop whoop! Ordered. It’s bloomin beautiful and a very good copy of some much more expensive women’s blouses by Wonder and Weaver. I may have to order myself the age 16 and see if I can squeeze myself into it. The rest of the outfit are must haves. A cool pair of jeans, sparkly Mary Janes and a fabulous tan bag! For the younger girls these shoes are gorgeous.

Grey Marl Badger Knitted Jacket from £30.50

I know, I know it’s only August and the babies should be in their beautiful summer clothes, but it just isn’t happening is it? So I share with you the most beautiful cardigans from Boden. These always sell out fast, hence why I’m sharing them now.  As well as the above badger there is this deer one, this  water melon stripe one and this navy stripe version. I LOVE them all!

Summer journals…

FullSizeRender (5).jpg

I wanted to write about the journals that Daisy and Bobby have been completing for the last couple of years. I started them as a bit of a diary for both them and I to remember what we got up to over the summer. I bought them a notebook each and thought we would complete them as regularly as possible.

FullSizeRender (6)

It was clear early on that they needed guidance with what to include within their entries, so I wrote a list of questions at the back of each one.

Things to collect

Entrance tickets




Feathers, flowers, and more…

Questions to consider

The date today

People I was with today

Friends I made today

The location of today

Where did we stay today

What was the weather like today

How did I feel today

What was the best and worst bit of today

What did I eat today

Architecture I saw today

Something I learnt today

A book I’m reading, music I listened to or a film I’ve watched

Bobby had just started to read and write, so I thought he could develop this and use drawing to express himself. His are a lot less detailed than Daisy’s but this years entries are getting much better.

This notebook Roger la Borde Elegant Owls Lined A4 Notebook
is fabulous as a journal and there are lots of different designs.

I love love love everything about this look, so cool, it would be just as good with a blouse or shirt underneath. I saw them, I ordered them. Such a good in between season outfit. They will look fabulous with trainers once it gets colder and oh my goodness how amazing are these from Boden? Other dungarees I’m loving include these from Gap (these are the bigger girl version), these from Mango and finally these from Boden.

Appliqué Dress £18

How pretty is this little dress? How gorgeous would it be on a baby girl. Marks and Spencer’s baby collection just keeps getting better and better, nearly every piece is exquisite. I may get carried away here but how gorgeous is this cardigan (which has this romper to match) and also comes in this colour way (just the right shade of pink and both contain cashmere). I love this set and this top, which would be just beautiful with these knickers and the above cardigan.   


Romper with Linen £18

I spotted this in store last week whilst shopping with my mum and we both agreed it was beautiful. I would so have put this on Bobby. I also loved this all in one and this one, these joggers, this cardigan, this set (if you are going to a special occasion) and finally these swim shorts. Happy shopping…

2. Boden Jersey Dungarees now from £14.25

3. Gap Glitter Criss Cross Sandals now £10.99

4. Boden 3 pack Bracelets now £8.75

I have a tween girl, it’s suddenly hit me that she is no longer a baby and therefore I need to reassess what she wears. She is getting particular about certain things and mentions ‘teenagers’ quite a bit. Don’t get me wrong she still loves a twirly dress and secretly loves all her girly things, but I think peer pressure is there and she wants to appear cooler! This dungaree suit is fab and now a bargain in the sale. Daisy has  a very similar one from Zara last year that she has worn a lot so I know she will be happy with this one. The blouse is new season but I just know it will get worn with everything jeans, shorts (or how gorgeous are these), dungarees and leggings!

2. Boden Pocket T-Shirt  from £14.50

3. Boden Pocket T-Shirt  from £14.50

New season Boden has landed and I have to say I am quite excited to be looking at A/W clothes as this rain at the minute is just so uninspiring. These tops are a happy medium and an item that will mix and match well in a girls wardrobe. I couldn’t decide which colour I liked best so I have shared all three, this striped sweatshirt is also cool. I also noted that they had this fabulous raincoat if none of the ones I posted last week here were suitable. This jumper was also an instant hit for me, I love a bit of mustard and I love this spotted dress which would go well with this cardigan version of the above jumper. There was lots more to choose from, but I needed to remember it’s supposedly summer and move on…
