Getting back into the swing of things..

Blogging has really taken a back seat over the last few weeks.  Obviously I took a planned break when we were at Centerparcs, but when we got back, I was ill and this week Ethan has been ill.. with all that illness and a few other things thrown into the mix, I'm afraid I've been very slack and have been neglecting my blog.. even my emails are going a bit crazy.  I'm trying to get back into things now.

I'll start off with something nice and simple.  What I Wore Wednesday.  This is literally what I wore today.  We didn't leave the house much, just for a stroll after lunch to retrieve Ethan's wellies from preschool.  I went for a nice warm Autumn look...

Jumper dress - New Look (at least two seasons ago)
Leggings - Asda
Socks - Primark (last year)
Snood/scarf - Primark
Boots - Sugar Shoes
Kalahari Bangle - Stella & Dot

This jumper dress is an Autumn/Winter staple of mine.  Very cosy and snug, it also has a gorgeous Nordic style pattern which I love.  I'm afraid you can't really make out the pattern on my socks, but it's very similar, just different colours!

I found this snood in Primark at the weekend.  I was queueing up to buy a few pairs of PJs I'd spotted for Ethan when I noticed this had been dumped by someone else.  It cried out to me "Pick me up! Take me home with you!"  As I had robins around my neck, I thought I'd bring out my birdy/owl boots.  These boots have been with me for years now.  They are a little tired, but I love them.  The print has to be one of my favourites EVER.  Just soooooo cute!

Can you spot my Stella & Dot bling?  I recently invested in a Kalahari Bangle which comprises of two zebras.  I like to think they are kissing!! Love it.

Linking up with all the usual suspects today, Transatlantic Blonde & Pleated Poppy.

Hopefully this is me getting back to my usual blogging form now... fingers crossed!


  1. I love that sweater! I've been looking for heart patterned knits for 2 years!

  2. Haha! The word "snood" always cracks me up! Anywho... glad to see that your crew is back up and around. So hard when you're sick then the little one is sick. And who takes care of Mommy? Hope you're getting some good rest and drinking lots of tea. In the meantime, you still have great style!!! ~Sarah
