Today I’m Wearing: An Oasis Polly floral vest

Who said florals are only for spring? I’ve been trying to bolster my collection of smart tops as I never seem to have anything to wear if I’m invited out for dinner without going all out with a dress which can sometimes seem a bit over the top.

This top caught my eye because I knew it would be perfect to chuck on for casual or smarten up with heels and a blazer to pretend I’m posh in.

Dream house dreaming

Nick & I will be moving house soon. Although we have no idea where to yet. The market seems to be dead at the moment and I feel like I know every property on Rightmove inside out at the moment. This is a little bit scary to say the least.

I would imagine we’ll probably end up having to move into one of our parent’s houses for a little while as we don’t want to rush in and buy the wrong house just for the sake of it. This isn’t exactly an ideal scenario as we’ve been used to our own space for 7 years now, as have our parents.

However, this does mean that I’ve been back on Pinterest looking for design ideas for our next house. I love the decor of our current house and we probably won’t stray far from it but there’s definitely some little bits and pieces that we’d like to change.

One of the main things I’ve been looking at on Pinterest is living rooms. Our sofas are starting to look a little bit tired and I’ve been trying to decide whether we should keep our black TV stand* or go for a wooden one instead. Another massive and very expensive decision is the fireplace. Our current fireplace is absolutely beautiful and I’m a bit gutted we can’t take it with us but I’ve got my fingers crossed for a lovely old Victorian home with original fireplaces instead.

Here’s some of my favourite lounge images from Pinterest:

Today I’m Wearing: A Woolovers top

Huxley learnt to walk last week. We always thought he’d walk early because he’d been early to do everything else so far but when the 9-month mark came and went we thought maybe it wouldn’t happen. He’d been walking around the furniture for months and didn’t seem to be getting anywhere closer to walking by himself.

We’d noticed that he’d taken to crawling over to his walker and using that to walk around the flat with so we took it back to Nick’s sister and he walked by himself that same afternoon! It’s so sweet watching his first tentative, wobbly steps. I still find it funny seeing him stood up in his little shoes because he’s just so tiny!

I’ve scheduled this post to go live while I’m on holiday in Spain incase I don’t get a chance to blog while I’m out there. As much as I’m looking forward to a nice break in the sunshine, I have been enjoying that slight chill in the air that comes with the move into Autumn. I was recently sent this wonderfully comfy top from Woolovers and I can tell it’s going to be a firm favourite in my wardrobe as it gets colder.
