Just arrived back home home from the most amazing long weekend away in Nottingham. We payed a very special visit to my sister Sam, her fiance Mark, Betty the dog and our new two month old nephew... precious Louie! We had the best time hanging out, listening to Marks fantastic music collection, being overly spoilt by my sisters incredible cooking, taking a few nice trips into Nottingham and fitting in as many cuddles with Louie as possible!
My sister has a wonderful house full of gorgeous vintage furniture, fabrics and quirky hand made items; it makes a great backdrop for taking outfit posts as everything is so visually pleasing to the eye.
Ross took control of taking the majority of photos on this trip (Hence the fact he is not in many of them!), he did such a great job it's been hard to whittle them down. It doesn't help with such a cute nephew constantly pulling the most wonderful expressions!
I was quite proud of myself for traveling so light, I tried to incorporate lots of light layering with a sensible warm winter coat; this worked out just perfect. The top I'm wearing is a new one I brought recently from primark, It's very comfortable, easy to mix with other garments and only cost around £8! I don't tend to buy too much from the high street as were buying endless beautiful vintage pieces, but I will admit it feels quite good to have a brand new item in my wardrobe now and then.
It was Such a lovely moment when Louie fell asleep in my arms, am I feeling broody? Yes... but a few more years down the line would be a perfect. I have four beautiful nieces and nephews to keep me entertained for now! More Nottingham photos will follow soon. Hope you all are having a good week?
