What she wore – Collecting leaves

Laurence has been working from home this week, which has been a little weird. He’s there but not really. He has this fancy shmancy start-stop-clock-app thing (me – a technophobe?) to keep track of his hours. If I’m in, I physically have to restrain myself from handing him the baby.

So, to his relief, the girls and I have been going out lots. Yesterday, that meant a trip to Blaise Park in North Bristol.

House of Fraser sent us the outfit Talitha’s wearing, to feature, so it seemed the perfect opportunity to snap away. I find activities like walks and trips to the park a little boring without adult company so my camera gives me an added bit of purpose. I feel guilty admitting that. I know I need to learn to be more “in the moment”.

Here’s a closer look at the print on that skirt. I want one in my size!

My mother-in-law gave Talitha this sweet little basket last Christmas and she loves taking it collecting, especially now that there’s so much to collect in Autumn. I think we’ll make a leaf garland.

At first she wasn’t sold on the cardigan as it’s not a “colour” but she’s now quite taken with the buttons. She says they look like sweeties. I think these pieces are so versatile. I look forward to seeing what other pairings they make throughout the season. Come to think of it, though the colours are pretty autumnal, this skirt would easily make a great Christmas piece too.

Are your kids enjoying the change of style colder weather brings?

    Cherry has that skirt in blue! I hate going for spontaneous walks and trips to the park too, I was thinking today I need to do it more though! x
