Crooked Spire And Signs Of Spring...

After such a freezing cold Saturday, it felt like a dream to have it warm and sunny on Sunday. I really needed my sunglasses on as the sun was shining so brightly. My husband had a rare Sunday off work, the children was off school so a nice family day out was called for.

What I wore~
  • Coat : c/o Gray & Osbourn
  • Bag : Cath Kidston
  • Jeans : Matalan
  • Boots : c/o Shoetique

We had a lovely day out in Chesterfield. Sundays are the perfect day for a nice lazy walk around the shops. Not to many people around so you can shop at your own pace. We had a fun time, sight seeing, stopping for photos at the Crooked Spire, shopping and had some lunch out. We even spotted beautiful signs of Spring around the corner.

A sunny and warm day. Fun family time. Cool things to see. Yummy hot chocolate. Sunday lunch made for me makes a nice change. Spotting signs of Spring = A perfect Winters day :)

Maxi Dress Review

I was thrilled to be asked if I would like to review something from my987wardrobecom which is a company I came across for the first time last week, when I had chance to post some of their dresses on my blog here . I fell in love with the first dress on that post.

I was asked to pick one of 4 items, my eyes were drawn to this dress immediately. I have shoes with this style of pattern, yet I had never had a all over maxi dress with this print on before and wondered if I would be brave enough to wear it.

When the package arrived I tore open the corner and could see the dress through the lovely pink paper it was wrapped in peeping through.Always makes you feel good opening a gift even at my age.. As soon as I seen the print I knew I was going to love it. The size fits perfect the material feels great (100%  polyester) and the dress feels very stylish and comfortable to wear.

How I Will Be Wearing My Next Paralympics GB Supporters’ Scarf....

The lovely people at Next have sent me one of their official Paralympics GB Supporters’ Scarves and want to know how I will be wearing it.

The scarves have been designed by Next as part of their support for London 2012 and are the must have item of the summer!(All profits from the sale of the scarves will be donated to the British Olympic Association - helping British Olympic and Paralympic athletes deliver their best performance at London 2012 and beyond)

Here is some way's  how I will be wearing the scarf....

And using it to shout them on....

Want to try and win some great prizes?

The ‘Wear it, Wave it and Win’ prize draw on the Next website where people can upload photos of themselves wearing the supporters’ scarves and win some great prizes, including London 2012 tickets kindly donated by the BOA/ visit there website to buy your scarfs and upload your photos click here 

What Next say about the scarf

Next are proud to present the historic Must Have Item for the 2012 Olympic Games a stylish scarf.

However you wish to wear it, the Must Have Item is more than a piece of attire. It is a piece of British history, a memento for you and of one of Britain’s greatest teams.

It has been designed as a tribute to Team GB and this is reflected in the nine hundred athletes that are shown on the scarf. The detail and preparation that has been applied to the scarf represents the detail and preparation that every athlete puts into their training throughout their lifetime.

Thousands of symbols create an overall picture of the powerful Team GB lions head. The 60 hands within the design signify one for each of the million supporters. The 900 hearts, figures and stars are for the athletes we love, the athletes themselves and to show each one is a star.

Every scarf will have the XXX symbol to proudly show Great Britain is the only country to ever hold three Olympic Games. 14 Paralympic lion heads will humbly sit among the design to state the 14th Paralympian games that this Must Have Item celebrates too.

This multi lingual scarf, appeals to everyone who wants to be involved within the Games, regardless of their nationality or heritage. All four countries that make up our nation are embodied within the design by a British Rose, Welsh Daffodil, Irish Flax Bush and Scottish Thistle.

More frequently used symbols such as telephone boxes, minis, London taxis and London buses all help create a sense of location, while not forgetting the M1 to show that this Olympics is involving the whole country.

All Olympic sports are represented in the scarf design. This is shown through figures running or fencing, cycling and rowing. It might be an archery board or sailing boat. Each and every sport can be viewed in the scarf, as each and every Olympic sport will be taking place in Great Britain.

For those you who like a challenge there is one map of Great Britain hidden in the complex design. See if you can find it!

The Must Have Item can either be a fashion accessory, a great piece of artwork or even a fun game to play. But whatever its use it is a piece of history to keep and something we can all be proud to wear.

The scarf can be bought for £10 and is 90x90cm, it also comes in a smaller 50x50cm size, priced £5 and can be bought in any Next store.

Keds Shoes Review...

Spring has sprung and what a great time to think about summer shoes and clothes? Last week when the sun was shining it was a good reason to clear out some of my winter things I no longer need, to make way for my new season wardrobe. I love shoes and any reason to buy shoes even something tenuous such as a new season can and will be used to justify a purchase!

After doing this clear out I was contacted to see if I would like to review a pair of Keds Spring/Summer 2012 collection....Perfect timing as I was just looking forward to picking something new for spring. They have a great range of canvas shoes in all kinds of great colours. I went for this grey lace ups because I know they will good with lots of my clothes in my wardrobe...

About Keds

A fashion remake of Sneaker Originals In 1916, Keds created a shoe with a soft rubber sole. This original sneaker, called “the Champion,” has remained a style icon for almost 100 years. From movie stars, artists and tennis pros to first ladies and beatniks, just about everyone had a pair of Keds.

Nowadays, Keds offers many choices of shoes both new and authentic whilst holding on to the trendy, narrow silhouette that makes the Keds sneaker distinctive. The new Spring 2012 collection is inspired by two on-trend themes: Lawn Party and Pool Side.

The Lawn Party theme mixes Keds heritage and 2012 style. Classic and smart silhouettes with a tailored flair, made from materials such as linen and Hopsack and designed with plaids and stripes. The Pool Side theme exhibits new styles with bright, simple colour palettes or jutes and tropical prints.

Stockist info for Keds:

  • Next
  • Schuh
  • John lewis
