Spring has sprung and when the sun shines there’s literally no greater place than the Yorkshire countryside!
Beautiful, lush…magical even! This is where our heart lies…
Last week we were blessed with beautiful weather so we headed off on a family road trip to Bolton Abbey in the Yorkshire Dales.
Having grown up in nearby Ilkley, we’ve been visiting this spot since children so it’s rather special bringing my own kids here to play.
Set on the bank of the River Wharf, breathtaking Bolton Abbey is the ruins of the 12th-century Augustinian monastery and is known to have inspired artists such as Turner, Ruskin and Royle as well as the poet Wordsworth.
This awesome setting made the perfect fashion shoot and here I’m sharing my latest spring look combining floral prints with my favourite hue of the season, dusted pink.
This lightweight Belted Truster Jacket (trench + duster – get it?) has been one of my wardrobe staples this season and it’s not the first time it has appeared on this blog as it also featured in a recent post about my favourite transitional pieces. Bag is Osprey London and a sale piece I picked up late summer last year.
‘Horti-couture’ aka floral prints are one of my go-to spring trends and I just love this ‘bloomin’ brilliant’ tea dress I picked up recently in New Look. Here, I teamed it with a cropped black cardigan from M&S and an emerald statement necklace from Fever London and traffic stopping red earrings my great friend Sharmin picked up in boutique in Amsterdam.
Navigating rural terrain requires the comfiest shoes known to man. Forget trainers ladies…these monochrome espadrilles from H&M (new in) are an absolute dream to wear! And stylish too!
What a perfect day-Oliver wears a white tee from M&S, jeans from Zara Kids and his favourite Nike’s!
