Sunday adventures

Aaaand breathe...Yesterday was our first full day alone just the three of us. Since the beginning of December we've either had people visiting us at home or have been to stay with family every weekend, and as very lovely as it was to see all our loved ones and spend time together, its come as a welcome relief to just be on our own once more. I know in a week or two I will long for my family to be near once more, but it was a bit of a luxury to be able to leave the house and head out just as one little family. 

After a slightly hungover (ahem) start to the day I dragged myself out of bed and we headed into the centre of Bristol to visit the museum. Theo mentioned it a few weeks ago, so we took the chance on this dreary Sunday afternoon. It was also the perfect opportunity to showcase and test out his new shoes. 

Theo's been taking a lot more control of his clothes, and dare I say it 'style' lately so it was with great excitement that we accepted an offer from Clarks for Theo to choose his own pair of shoes. Clarks have identified five style trends for kids; preppy, practical, minimalist, expressive and cool, then designed a selection of boots that fit into those categories. I would say that we choose clothes for Theo that cross over quite a few of those styles, but I do love a classic British influence. Dungarees, duffel coats, boots and bobble hats. 

Theo chose some Clarks originals desert boots which he dubbed his noisy shoes (v.2) that fit into the 'preppy' style. Together him and Rob now have matchy matchy desert boots, and I think they look pretty cute! 

We spent a few hours looking around the museum, looking at the displays and talking about all the different stuffed animals! It was a lovely way to spend a quiet Sunday, just the three of us. Perfect!

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
