One of my favourite blogs COTTDS, is running an AMAZING collaboration with Canon, on instagram, to win a TDF (to die for) SLR camera. Come to Mama! 
Above is the picture I entered, but I thought I'd share some of the other shots as well.

The boy was not on hand this weekend, so my gorgeous friend Anna stepped in with her fabulous iphone snapping skills.

Im actually a little bit in love with this outfit. The jacket, I've already shamelessly declared my love for in a previous post and the dress is my 'go to' at the moment as it's got this great boxy shape, BUT, mostly I loved this outfit because I got to revel in the fact that it was hugely impractical to be wearing socks with open toe wedges on a rainy Saturday afternoon! Next I'm going to try some chunky cable knit slouchy socks.

Laid-back Glitter

The festive season is fast approaching and every store on the high street is busting out the glitter, shimer and shine. It's literally like every outfit has been attacked by a Bedazzler! (LOVE IT!) 
I am like a magpie and all reason goes out of the window at this time of year, because I convince myself I NEED EVERYTHING! The only trouble is I hardly ever do anything that requires the level of bling promised by the exquisitely styled window displays. 
I am, therefore, on a mission to incorporate some sparkle into my everyday wardrobe, much to the boy's dismay as I am like a glitter fairy in this skirt, it gets EVERYWHERE, seriously it's a wonder that there was any glitter left to shoot for these photos. 
(I secretly love it though - tee he he)
