Fridays Bargain

This is my Friday sale treat. A lovely smock dress for your summer holiday from Zara. It would look great on its on or with a pair of shorts and some nice flats.  I really wish we were going away this summer but with the baby due in August its just not possible. But we can all dream.

Ace and Jig

Its not often I find a a clothing line where I want the whole collection. But with Ace and Jig SS13 I just want everything!!
They are an American company set up by 2 ladies Carey Vaughan and Jenna WIlson.
I love the clean lines and textiles used throughout their collections, the simplicity of the clothes, and the ease in which you an wear them.
With this SS13 collection I can imagine packing the whole lot into a bag and going on a fantastic holiday to Ibiza or somewhere equally as glamorous.  I think the clothes just give you an edge. Not too OTT but make you feel pretty special pool side with a cocktail of an evening or out for dinner!!
Here are some of my picks ( but as i said i love the whole collection)

Mama and Me

I love this dress by mini boden, its so pretty and really can be worn in summer with sandals or will brighten up autumn with skinny jeans and a cardigan.
These moccasins from YMC are a real treat, Soft leather and very comfy can be worn with jeans and dresses. And whats even better is they are both in the sale.

Baby Love

Whilst the sales are on i am stocking up on things for the family and getting ready to have the baby. I am on countdown now with only 7 weeks to go. I must admit I am at the cant wait stage and really want it out now. 
I was in the John Lewis baby department when i came across this fantastic moses basket by Moba.
I loved the look of them instantly. The come in a range of colours, they are light but strong, easy to clean, eco friendly they are  made from recyclable material.  I was sold as soon as i saw it.

New Purchase

Being 7 months pregnant you don't get a lot of fun from  clothes shopping for yourself, if you do at all. By now you usually have all  the maternity clothes you need and don't really have the energy to shop anyway.
 Its hard to know how long you will keep the extra weight on for once the baby comes and what shape or size you will go back down to, so buying for after is also pretty difficult.
With the sales starting its hard to bag yourself a bargain.
I have managed a little treat for myself, this week, in the shape of a bag. I had spied it in store a while ago and didn't get it, but on my way home from work this week I popped into & Other Stories as i noticed their sales had started. Anyway here it is. Happy sales shopping!!

Bargain Friday

Happy Friday!!
i am going to try and keep up this weekly post of things we can all afford. i hope you like the things i pick.
I love this cotton fabric. Its so vibrant. Its called 'Evalotta' and comes from Ikea. Its a great way to brighten up any kids bedroom. And a bargain at £5 pm.

Love This Place

I was browsing the modern House website, it has some amazing homes for sale. When i came across this house. I really love how vibrant it looks and not a house you would be scared to live in.

Making a Splash

When i  started thinking about this post I thought the high street would give me lots of choice at good prices for girls swimsuits, and now a few days into my search I have come to the conclusion that there aren't that many out there. I ended up in Libertys and there inspiration found me.

Mama and Me

Its very rare that i dress me and Pops the same, although they do say they are a mirror image of us. Anyway i am loving these fab espadrills. I know they aren't completely the same, but they are still espadrills!

The Girls Espadrills are from Stella McCartney and Mamas from Whistles
