An Autumn outfit with Glasses Direct


It's finally here isn't it? Autumn has arrived and I couldn't be happier. It's not just about the colours (even though they still take my breath away time I see a beautiful tree turning various shades of red and orange) for me it's that feeling of a fresh new start, of shedding the old and making changes. I love this time of year though when the evenings are getting colder and the mornings are crisp. It's that back to school feeling and getting organised for the months ahead.

Firstly, the change I love the most - Autumn Outfits! I get so excited about finally being able to wear tights again, to dig out my jumpers and knitwear and throw on pinafores and dungaree dresses and pretend I'm going back to school. It does end up being like some sort of uniform, but I love it. I have a pretty substantial collection of vintage floral shirts and I love pairing them with denim or black dresses. This time of year though is all about layering, as it can still be surprisingly warm (like this day!) when you go out bundled up in a big cardigan only to be sweating a few minutes later! I learnt my lesson, but I was so happy to be able to walk comfortably around in just a shirt and dress for most of the day.


Since I've started my new photography business I find that I'm spending more time looking at a screen editing lots of lovely pictures for people (and for myself!) and I felt like I needed to get my eyes seen as it had been a year or two since my last check. It turned out my suspicion was right and I needed a slightly stronger prescription than my old glasses, so I'm glad I got my eyes checked out.

After I got my prescription I decided to have a look at Glasses Direct again, as I've used their service before and have always found it efficient and great value. I also love the range of glasses on offer, and the fact that even though it's an online service you can order up to four frames to try on at home before you order them with a prescription. If you're anything like me I always feel a but pressured and panic at the opticians when looking at frames, and I like to take my time in deciding and see what they look like in better light, which is important I think when you're potentially going to spend £100+ on something. So I ended up deciding on four (but it was so hard to narrow it down!) and ordered my 7 day home trial through the website. I then turned to my Instagram stories to get some advice from you lovely lot on what suited me best! I eventually, with your help, decided on the Scout 'East' Glasses in dark tortoise shell. Ordering couldn't be easier, as when you like a frame you can just click "add to my home trial" which you can then go on and order. Then once you receive your home trial you have 7 days to try them on, and then free postage return.

Once you decide on your favourite frame you can order them using the online form. You simply choose your frame (which are stored in your home trail basket) then choose what lenses and package you want, and then add your prescription. Putting in my prescription was really easy (even if you have no idea what it means!) as you just input the specific numbers from your prescription into the corresponding boxes on the form. You then have the option to choose extras for your lenses to protect them from scratches etc. After reading up about the types of lenses I opted for the Blue reflect lenses, which is a protective coating that aims to reflect blue light and glare from screens from entering your eyes, which for me was important as I spend quite a lot of my time looking at screens.


I really love the look of these glasses, they're slightly larger than my other frames which I really like as it's always good to try something new right?! They feel really great quality, and after putting my prescription they were with me in a week. If you want to get £30 off your order with Glasses Direct then follow this link!

The rest of my outfit is:

Pinafore dress: Monki
Floral shirt: Vintage
Shoes: Converse



This post is in association with Glasses Direct and I received the glasses in return for the service review. All thoughts, words and images are my own and I really do think it is a great service!

Summer wishlist





Clockwise from left: Kimono - M&S // Headscarf - Zara // Striped t-shirt - COS // Rose-gold Saltwater sandals - Toast // Scarlett of Soho frames - Glasses Direct // Shirtdress - Monki // Broderie blouse - M&S // Clarks Originals Dusty Soul sandals - Clarks // Denim skirt - Topshop

So seeing as the warmer weather sort of seems to be arriving I've been doing a little bit of online window shopping and I thought I'd share with you some of my finds!


 As you can see it's still all about the pastels with a little rose gold thrown in. I always look for light loose fitting clothing in the summer as there's nothing worse than tight sweaty clothes so this shirt dress would be perfect! I also hate it when dresses are too short (I'm looking at you Topshop!) and you feel super uncomfortable about going out with no sort of leggings on incase you flash your underwear so I'm always on the lookout for longer style dresses.  I'm definitely not one to show much skin either so have been loving these really pretty light cover up kimono style tops which can be thrown over a sleeveless top but still keep you cool. On to my next love that is sandals. I've been an avid wearer of Saltwater sandals for about four years now, before you could really find them in the UK, I own two pairs already but when I saw these exclusive Rose-gold pair from Toast my heart definitely skipped a beat. These Clarks originals in pink and metallic also stole a little piece of my heart and they just look so comfortable. I've been lusting over denim skirts for a while now as I think they're just so versatile, I like how you can wear them with a t-shirt and trainers or dress them up with a pretty top, and this pink acid wash is just a winner for me.

I've also been wanting to share with you my new sunglasses that I've been loving. I decided to branch out (daring I know) away from my go to tortoise shell and pick these beautiful Scarlett of Soho Churchill frames in grey from Glasses Direct. I've used Glasses direct a few times now and I'm always super impressed with the fast service and range of brands and frames available. If you fancy using it yourself you can get £30 off frames by following this link!

My maternity winter wardrobe must haves!

1 - Ankle boots / 2 - Drop shoulder jacket / 3 - Mama Jyms / 4 - Striped dress / 5 - Slippers / 6 - Maternity tights / 7 - Woollen bobble hat

 I'm longing for the colder weather to arrive, it's been so mild and it puts me all out of sorts. I have yet to reach for my winter coat or hat and its a little disconcerting. I know once the cold weather does arrive I will be longing for these slightly warmer days, but for now all I want is to see my breath on chilly, bright and clear mornings whilst I'm wrapped up in ALL the layers.



 So I'm trying to will the weather by doing a little window shopping and creating a list of some of my winter must haves. Sometimes I think my wardrobe is a little too grey and perhaps I should inject some colour into it...but who am I kidding, I love grey and muted tones. I actually already own number two and four, the dress and drop shoulder coat from People Tree, and though neither of them are actual maternity wear, they have done me very well in these transitioning months of my growing size and the changing seasons! I love clothes that can be adapted and layered. The dress has been just the right thickness to be able to wear on its own on the warmer days, or under a lovely cardigan when its turned a little colder. The jacket has been my go to for the school run or everyday out and about, its the perfect combination of being warm without bulky and I think goes so well with many outfits. These maternity tights have been doing the job and of course you can't beat a good pair of Chelsea boots that can be slipped on (without laces!) for when the bump gets too big.

 As I seem to be spending more and more time at home, and will be for the foreseeable future, nesting and relaxing in my pregnant state I have been slightly obsessing over night and lounge wear! I love these mama jyms from The Bright Company and these slippers from Mahibis. They are definitely being added to my birthday and Christmas list! I also have an exclusive money off code for you, my lovely readers, to be able to use to get 10% off at People Tree for their AW15 range! Just use AATF10 at the checkout! (Valid until 23rd December)

An evening with Nomads Clothing

A few weeks ago (yes I'm very behind!) I ventured out into the darkening evening to catch a train into the centre of Bristol. It's a pretty rare occurrence that I leave the house after dark, but this was for a special occasion. I had been invited to a lovely evening hosted by Nomads clothing, in the ever wonderful Harts Bakery nestled under the arches of Temple Meads station. I arrived to a warm welcome and had a catch up with other blogging friends, and was finally able to put some names to faces of lovely ladies I'd not had the pleasure of meeting in the flesh before!

The evening was cosy and warm and celebrated beautiful ethical clothing as well as crafts and delicious food. What more could you want?! A rail showcasing a sample of the high quality clothing available from Nomads drew me in and I couldn't help but touch all the beautiful organic cotton clothes and swoon over the hand block printed loungewear on offer. I did fall in love with this dress, but alas my ever expanding stomach wouldn't allow me to fit into it, so instead I settled for this gorgeous kimono which I've been obsessed with and is a great transitional piece.

 As the evening wore on I managed to sample the delicious Moroccan inspired food, as well as try my hand at making my own pom pom bag tassel as well as lust over several of the items on display from Directors Notebook.

 I had a great evening, and was very inspiring to be surrounded by such beautiful and ethical products, and especially to chat to the designer Niki Groom about the inspiration for many of the pieces as well as have my portrait drawn by her!

Wearing : All the glitter

I believe this is the first time I've ever done this, so it's a big moment for me...but here is an outfit post! 

I've been slowly trying to build up my confidence of showing my face on this here blog, as its not something I feel totally comfortable with. Bringing in posing and showing ALL of me is something else entirely, but I like looking at outfit posts so thought I should eventually try it out...and it wasn't too painful! 

This is my "it's nearly Christmas so I can wear glitter ALL the time, Saturday errand running" outfit. The sun was reasonably warm, and even though the frost remained in the shade it was warm enough to not be bundled up in a coat (for short periods of time!)

As some of you may know I am slightly obsessed with glitter clothing, and I've been lucky recently and found some gems in the charity shop, and I'm considering wearing it all the time...because after all glitter is for life, not just for Christmas.



Details: 

Cardigan - Hand-knitted thrifted
Denim Shirt - Thrifted
Glitter skirt - Thrifted
Shoes - Topshop
Handbag - Thrifted 

Theo wears:

Jumper - Next
Dungarees - Tootsa Macginty
Boots - Clarks

a family walk: Lacock estate

Firstly this is a little later than I intended it to be what with all the drama going on around these parts! The long and short of it is, is that Rob was taken to hospital on Sunday with suspected appendicitis and ended up having surgery to have it removed on Monday and with then discharged yesterday. So cue lots of running around to and from the hospital and not really having time to think let alone sit in front of a computer!

Also secondly we didn't quite manage a family walk this weekend because of above reasons but last week we had a little trip to Lacock Abbey and village with my Mum, and seeing as they are family then I thought it would fit in with our family walk!

We drove to meet my Mum at a National Trust we'd not visited before, and uniquely it is a whole National Trust owned village. There is so much to look at and visit, including the Abbey, house, grounds, village and the Fox Talbot museum celebrating the one of the pioneers of photography and photography in general.

We started with a cup of tea and cake in the old tearoom in a majestic stone barn, whilst we sheltered from a sudden downpour before taking a look around the museum. I would love to go back and have a proper look because there's not so much time to read and look in detail when a certain little person running wild. We then made our way through the grounds towards the Abbey admiring all the early spring shoots and blooms, spread over the grounds in glorious beds of white, yellow and purple.

We explored courtyards and cloisters before entering the house and taking a look around. After lots of fun peering in rooms and imagining how life once was we made our way outside into the beautiful grounds. We couldn't resist snapping a few photos amongst the crocus's and snowdrops, especially to show off my very pretty new floral dress sent to me courtesy of Joules. I thought there was no better place to wear it than prancing round the countryside through fields of flowers! It's such a beautiful cut, and the quality of fabric is lovely. Theo was also sent an amazing weatherproof coat from the lovely boy clothes section, which is perfect for our family walks! (and it really is weatherproof, as tested out in a sudden downpour!)
Theo found a furry friend to keep him company!

We then explored the village taking in all the different styles of houses, all beautifully rustic and individual. We dreamed about which house we would live in, and imagined the quaint village life! We stopped in a pub for a drink and a bowl of chips before going our separate ways and heading home, happy after our adventure!

style lust



There hasn't been a brand, designer or collection that has completely stolen my heart for a long while; one where I would definitely wear pretty much every piece of clothing they've made, until I saw the new White Pepper Spring '14 collection. I'm in love. I know it's a bit silly to be in love with clothes, but everything about them is perfect! The colours; the soft pinks and blues, navy's and creams, greys and corals. The patterns, fabrics and the cuts. If money were no object, and I had no conscience about being greedy I would buy all of it!

 It's not just the dressed that are making me swoon, the shoes are a little bit to die for too...

I'm not the best at wearing heels, seeing as I'm quite tall I haven't really had the practice, but these do look super comfy, even so I would probably need to invest in some gel heel inserts to relieve heel pressure  and maybe even some gel socks to soothe my tired, dry feet after stomping around all day! 

So yeh, thanks in advance to the person who buys me the whole collection!

man oh man

Now I don't if it's because I'm getting old and am no longer a grungy teenager but more and more I have come to appreciate men dressing well, and looking a little bit dapper. I have a whole Pinterest board dedicated to well dressed men, with nice haircuts who may be a little on the handsome side, and quite a few pictures of Joseph Gordon-Levitt, obviously. (Sorry Rob!)

 I know that Rob's taste in clothes has certainly changed over the years and he has moved away from just wearing a t shirt, jeans and trainers and now chooses shirts, proper trousers and boots. I absolutely loved what he wore for our wedding, a vintage tweed jacket and waistcoat, complete with tie pin (I think we'd been watching a lot of boardwalk empire at the time!)

We don't really buy that many new clothes, well he certainly less than me, and Rob has a bit of trouble finding trousers that fit him properly! Seeing as he's so tall it's quite difficult to find a pair of trousers like these nice slim mens diesel jeans that are the right cut and fit for him, and we've certainly learnt that sometimes you need to spend a little more money to get it. I bought Rob a new coat and jumper for Christmas, and I think that was the first new items he's had in a long while! I've been eyeing mens clothes from The White Pepper and the Weekend Offender clothing line too. But for now I'll just leave you with this beautiful man...

One: Tootsa Macginty Bude harem pants // two: Beau Loves Davenport triangle pants via Archies Boutique // three: Indikidual banana print leggings via Milly Mog // four: Mason and the Tambourine Teepee no.2 leggings // five: Mason and the Tambourine Ridges no.2 leggings // six: Thief & Bandit Stalactite leggings // seven: Thief & Bandit Mountain print leggings  // eight: Lotiekids Elephant leggings // nine: Lotiekids Bicycle print leggings  // ten: Indikidual yellow banana harem via Archies Boutique // eleven: Indikidual humbug jumpsuit via Archies Boutique 

theo's daily outfit

So I've missed a week or so of updating on here with Theo's daily outfit, I kept on meaning to do one but then there were other more important post's to write! I'm not sure how to keep on doing these, whether I just keep them on Instagram, or do a monthly update on here? Either way I just don't seem to be able to fit them in as much! What do you think? Does anyone actually care where his clothes are from?! Or could that be included within the instagram picture?

As you can see we've had lovely spells of warm weather and have been out as much as possible trying to make the most of it. We've enjoyed going out without a coat and I've managed to bust out my sandals a few times! I need to do a more detailed update of what's been happening around these parts, so stay tuned (if I ever get round to it!)
