I love working with me&i and have collaborated with them for years now-they're a seriously cool, super-fun, vibrant Swedish brand for kids (and ladies too), that really embody that retro vintage vibe for modern families everywhere. Look at the bright kids line below-bursting with funky prints, truly happy-making fashion for kids of all ages.
We love to fill our weekends with wintry walks and precious family time, mostly eating, playing and enjoying all that beautiful Yorkshire has to offer us. I usually focus on style, mine and the kids, over on my style blog Mummy's Got Style but every so often, I like to showcase what we rock, right here too!
My most favourite opera of all and the very first my mother saw in her teens, made for an extra special evening at The Grand in Leeds for Opera North's epic operatic and most tragic love story, La traviata.
For those who follow this blog know, I love finding beautiful pieces for my little boys to wear- cool, timeless, bright and most importantly, bold pieces that truly champion boys' style.
Before I knew I was expecting a boy when pregnant with my first child, Oliver, I dreamt of a little sailor-suited and booted baby son, one I hoped would look just like my husband, Peter. That's love for you, huh?!
The theme of Christmas this year seemed to be relaxation for us-pure uninterrupted family time, with a self imposed social media silence allowing me to focus solely on the little ones.
I don't have a daughter but I know that lots of my readers do, and being a big fan of heidi klein, (the UK’s first luxurious one-stop beachwear destination) I had to share their exclusive swimwear collection for girls ages 2-10 years. They are utterly beautiful!
I love a bit of colour clashing and a print clash come to that (but more of that another time)-quirky, a little bit eccentric but style with edge.
If you guys follow my style blog mummysgotstyle.com too, you'll know I'm a bit bit obsessed with fashion and how empowering and transformative clothes can be-and now the weather is turning, it's time to add another coat to the collection.
Yesterday I went all bright and colour blocked, I put together a bright, vibrant ensemble of blue, fuschia and yellow with my cropped jumper (Topshop), dress (Fever London) and bag (Nova Harley).
Those who follow this blog know what a jewel loving magpie I am, only fuelled by Pinterest (damn you Pinterest eating away my hard earned cash) but what a hub of sparkly inspiration (I even had my engagement ring upgraded and re-set thanks to the art deco rings I spied there)...but I digress, watches too have a special place in my sometimes materialistic heart!
Over on my style blog Mummy's Got Style, it's #Fashionfriday, a linky for all you fashionistas where you can add style posts of you and your kids or fashion wish-lists. All style related posts are welcome- new, archived and as many posts as you like! Everybody's welcome too of course!
The fabulous folks at Yellow Mellon sent my sons some beautiful summery pieces for review so we hit the park with the very talented Kirsty Mattsson of Kirsty Mattsson Photography for a shoot in the sunshine!
The summer is all about pretty, bright prints for me and nothing says that better than florals.
I love a bit of monochrome and this summer Aztec style print dress in black and white from Dorothy Perkins simply makes me smile. It's comfortable enough to run around little people in but doesn't compromise on style!
I am a seriously lucky lady as recently Luxe-Layers gifted me this beautiful designer dress by Brazilian designer Lucidez which I review in full over on my style blog Mummy's Got Style: HERE.
With the World Cup, we are all currently and right so- Brazil-crazy but let me tell you I've always been a fan of Brazilian fashion (food and film) and scored a goal of my own (sorry) when stunning Luxe-Layers, a beautiful boutique and online shop from my old neighbourhood Barnes in London contacted me to gift me this captivating dress by Rio based designer Lucidez. I'm in love....
