My summer wardrobe inspiration | Sosandar

With the weather serrriously warming up this week, I just couldn't help myself- out came the summer frocks from the depths of my wardrobe and I began sorting through the pieces I could wear this season. In doing this, I kinda realized this pattern emerging as far as my summer wardrobe goes; I seem to gravitate towards midi dresses like there's no tomorrow!

I've spoken on my blog before about my own fashion journey and how my confidence has changed so much as I've approached my late twenties. In a nutshell, I've happily got to the point of wearing what I want to primarily because I want to. That might seem SO basic but it's actually taken me right up until recent months to actually adopt this mindset into my everyday life. I'm old enough to know which clothing cuts work on my body shape and those that don't, to know the difference and to play to my strengths.

The midi-dress is definitely a failsafe and oh-so-chic way to dress up (or down!) and, not to mention, look ultra feminine too. I love button- through dresses and floral prints, especially for the way they nod towards bygone eras with a touch of vintage inspiration; so you can probably imagine when I laid eyes on this beautiful number from Sosandar, I fell hook line & sinker!

This dress is SO beautiful and especially so in the detailing; with silver buttons running the length, *the* most flattering sleeves and such a sweet floral pattern, for me it really has the word 'versatile' written all over it. 
When the sun is out, I prefer to opt away from jeans and denim in favour of lighter fabrics anyway and so this dress has been such a great option especially for this past week! I've been pairing it with trainers for popping about town in and it looks really nice accessorised this way for a casual daytime look.

Casual though it may be, we all know a pair of shoes can transform an outfit and these suede heels from Sosandar are such lovely examples of how to dress up a shirt dress, perfect for a date night or occasion. I don't think it gets more classic than a black court heel for dressing up a look and this pair are going to see a lot of summer evenings! 
The lace tie and the effortless shape also make them really comfortable to wear (tried and tested on Lincoln's Steep Hill people!)- I think they're among the comfiest heels I own and definitely a welcome addition to my summer '18 shoe collection!

I'm really excited to continue styling this duo and I'm pretty convinced you're gonna see me wearing them a LOT in the coming months too.
Sosandar have some absolutely stunning pieces in their collection, they're definitely worth a little peek if you happen to be on the hunt for some ultra beautiful style inspo!

Wardrobe Clearout & Burton Kidswear

I absolutely love the change over in the seasons; that feeling of moving towards warmer summer days and the reflection in the fashion industry as the shops begin to follow suit in anticipation of better weather in general. (Please tell me I am not the only one who starts scouting for sandals & floppy hats by mid- Jan?)
 As the first of our Boy's birthdays falls in February, I tend to start sorting through the kids wardrobes early on in the year to cull the clothes that no longer fit/ have been worn to their bitter end and I begin to shop about for new season pieces that will see us through to summer *and* account for the exponential growth of limbs that never ceases to amaze me!

What I always love about new spring collections is the injection of bright colour and vibrance into everyday wear. I'm a big sucker for a colour pop myself and I love seeing my boys in bright hues too. I think especially when the winter has dragged on (a little too long for my liking) I find I am always desperate to warm things up a bit, even if it is just in terms of our clothing palettes!

Bold colours suit bright personalities and they also make it very easy to spot certain individuals in a crowd too! YES, you got me, there are ulterior motives to me dressing the boys in matching outfits and eye-catching ones too, but what can I say? I am a sucker for a lil' matchy-matchy!

Burton kidswear recently sent us some new pieces for the boys and I had the oppertunity not only to explore their insanely cute new season collections but also, to indulge in my slightly obsessive urge to match the boys outfits. (Yay!)
 Burton are a brand I've always really admired for kids clothing, especially the boyswear  section because they just look like miniature versions of their daddy. The clothes are really current and on-trend but also PERFECT for adventurous little beings who like to move about a LOT!

I have to admit, sometimes I do get a little nervous when a piece of work comes in which requires photographing the children just because their peak attention spans only ever last for a fraction of time! Yet, because Burton kids are all about super wearable and casual clothing, I knew the best place to photograph the kids would be in their happy place- the great outdoors: an altogether authentic environment which, I think, shows exactly why we love their clothing!

Having three boys has taught me many things and especially when it comes to clothing them, I've learned never to get too precious because A) boys grow like magic beanstalks (not even exaggerating! :p) And B) They WILL ruin a lot of things through their play. As such, I tend to shop for casual pieces most of the time and also for very practical items too. And it is lovely to know that Burton not only provide clothes that are designed to be lived in with generous sizing making them fit for longer, but also they look really on- trend too! (I'm looking at you denim jackets!)- I think I am officially the only member of the family who doesn't own one now! :p
