Looking forward to spring with Joules children’s jackets

It’s the end of January, the evenings are getting lighter and I am officially looking forward to spring! As far as the daffodils in my garden are concerned, it already IS spring, but they’re just a bit confused (please don’t let the frost come along and kill them!). One of the nicest things about looking forward to spring is looking forward to shedding a few layers and wearing a few brighter colours. Yes, I know,...

What she wore – Ballet class

As long as it’s not in the countryside! Practical, it isn’t.   The dress was from Joules and my mum bought it for her for Christmas 2011. As it was quite expensive and, knowing she wasn’t going to wear it often, she bought...

What she wore – Christmas flash mob

Regular readers will know my daughter (and her mummy!) is a real dancer. Just before Christmas we took part in a flash mob in the town centre. We had to dress inconspicuously, so shoppers couldn’t tell there was a flash mob about to happen, but they also wanted us to dress Christmassy and wintry.My daughter came up with this outfit herself.    She’s wearing a red and grey striped M&S Peppa Pig jumper dress. She wears...
