Over the half term we had a lovely day out in Sheffield. We go to Meadowhall Shopping Centre on the outskirts of Sheffield quite often in the car. This time we decided to go by train into the City Centre.

Spring Ballet Shoes Ready..


Morning, looks like it is going to be another nice day here :)

Hope you all having a fun half term week? We have lots of fun plans for this week. Cooking, crafting and a few days out planned. I am just hoping the weather is kind to us!?! You know how I  am ready for Spring? I pulled out this lovely floral shirt out the wardrobe yesterday as I am fed up with wearing jumpers. I teamed it up with a pair of jeggings and some new shoes. (more on the shoes later this week)..


Wondering which colour shoes to wear first?


I am going to start to wear more of what I have in my wardrobe now, instead of buying new and try not to wear my comfort clothes everyday.  I had a lovely Cath Kidston dress for Christmas but keep saving it for best.. It needs to be worn. Going think outside the box on outfits in future. Shake my wardrobe up more. More pattern mixing. More wear what I like. Sounds good eh?


What I wore~

  • Shirt : H&M
  • Jeggings : Primark
  • Shoes : c/o Shoe Zone
Hoping to get some garden work done today. Looking forward to making it nice for summer...

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 :)

Rolled Up Jeans..


What I wore~
  • Jacket : c/o House of Fraser
  • Shirt : Charity shop
  • Jeans : Calvin Klein
  • Shoe : F&F
I wore this outfit a few days ago. The day before the snow arrived again!! Phew it did not last long (the snow not the outfit, lol) The forecast says it will be back by the weekend, Great!?!

I reviewed this jacket from (House of Fraser here) and love it. It will be great for warmer weather, such a great colour for Spring don't you think? I teamed it up with this silky brown and cream polka dot shirt that I brought from the Charity shop a few years ago. Before I had nothing to go with this shirt, I do now.

My jeans are getting a little big now for some reason!?! They use to be a tight fit, not sure how this has happened !?! I'm sure with keep staying indoors looking after poorly children and not getting to the gym that they will fit nicely again soon! I thought these jeans would look nicer with a bit of a roll up on them? Showing a bit of ankle! bit chilly though as it is so cold outside, need my socks on! Lastly I picked up these cute gold shoes from Tesco just after Christmas in the January sale for a fiver, bargain eh?.


Loving brown and cream with a touch of denim thrown in for good measure...

Share In Style : Tartan..

 What I wore~
  • Jumper : Primark
  • Skirt : Matalan
  • Tights : Tesco
  • Boots :  c/o Shoetique
Nothing much to say this week...

Only...

Staying indoors is driving me mad!!

Snow after snow. Cold after cold. Poorly sons at home last week. Daughter ill this week. So looking forward to hitting the gym, walks into town and a few days out at the weekend when husband is off work.

Hopefully by then everyone is well enough to go out.

Until then I am sat looking at the doughnuts my husband brought yesterday!! I know I'm not going to stay healthy and good being inside all day,{ maybe I should eat one now to get it out the way!}. Hopefully I will be able to run it off later...

Tartan Scarf And Comfy Boots...


What I wore~
  • Dress : c/o Landsend
  • Scarf : Primark
  • Tights :Primark
  • Boots : c/o Shoetique

Pinch and a punch it's the first of the month :)

Got a good feeling about February, change is in the air...Last month was so cold and miserable I was mostly living in chunky jumpers to keep warm. I had been living in these boots too. With all the wet, snow icy and slippy conditions outside these boots have been perfect for the school run. I am also loving everything tartan. I was so close to picking a new tartan jacket the other day but changed my mind at the last minute. This scarf I picked up from Primark at Christmas for £4.00 such a bargain. Nothing much exciting happening around here at the minute. 2 of my boys have been ill in the week and now my daughter is poorly. Not going out anywhere far this weekend.

How about you?

Been anywhere exciting?

 Going anywhere fun?

What I Wore : Snow Days...

Warning : No make up selfies!!!


How quickly a week and half changes! First no snow, then deep snow, then no snow again.

Wrapped up warm here with a t-shirt, jumper, padded waistcoat, jacket, hat, scarf, jegging and wellies on really did keep me warm and toasty. Just a shame my feet when numb where to deep snow fell into my Wellington boots! Walking up to the park in the snow to play with the youngest 2 children is not the stylist place to go but my bright red scarf made it a nice and cheerful outfit. The sale shopping was put on hold when the unexpected snow arrive...

What I Wore :

Coat : c/o Millets
Padded waistcoat : Republic
Jumper : c/o Bonmarche
Scarf :Primark
Jeggings : Lidl
Wellies : Sportsworld
Hat : Christmas present : New Look
