Little Saint Nick

It's Christmas eve! Didn't that roll around fast? We're pretty on the ball this year, and it helps that we're off to my parents for a slap up dinner tomorrow, so we were able to go on a nice relaxing walk through Peatlands Park this morning. It was most enjoyable. No snow this Christmas it seems, so it was pretty mild. By the way- this young man turned 2 on Friday. Imagine- 2! What a big handsome boy he has turned into.

I would have liked to have made Jack's outfit just a little bit Christmassy for our xmas blog entry, but he told me in no uncertain terms that he was not for wearing a santa hat. Oh well. I suppose there is no point in learning to talk if you can't make your feelings known. So instead he opted for a matching ribbed hat and scarf from H&M and his red wax coat and jeans from Zara Baby.
Now, Jack and I are off to sprinkle 'Reindeer food' onto the front garden in the hope Santa will leave lots of lovely gifts. Happy Christmas, friends!

On a Cold and Frosty Morning

Brrrr. Technically, it's still Autumn. But it feels like winter. Every night the temperatures dip into the minus and we wake up to heavy frost. They say there's snow on the way next week. The photographer in me gets excited for the photo opp, and the wife in me worries about my other half having to battle through it to get to work.

I have been keeping Jack warm in his new cowl neck tank top from All Saints. I have mentioned before that unfortunately All Saints dropped their kidswear range. Occasionally I find bits in TK Maxx, or eBay, in this case. Above, he is wearing it under his Zara quilted coat, Zara jeans, H&M hat and mittens, and Aigle Perdrix wellingtons. Below, he is wearing it over an H&M vest.

So, just the other day, this travelled little man visited Peatlands park with his best gal Martha. Jack and Martha go almost everywhere together and are firm friends. She blogs too. You can find her over at Martha my Muse.
Jack had a blast. He wore his Cire de Pluie coat, avec Zara cords, an H&M beanie hat and his trusty Aigle Giboulee wellingtons. I love how they're lined with soft fur. They are the perfect choice in the cold wet weather we're having.

Scarf Weather

It seems like summer forgot us here in Ireland. There was a serious lack of sunshine, but at least it wasn't cold. Until about 2 days ago that is. All of a sudden the temperature seems to have plummeted and we're all shivering. The one good thing about the cold weather is I can dig out all my scarves. I like a good scarf, me. So does wee Jack. Here he sports a most beautiful Barbour scarf. They match his new Aigle Perdrix wellies perfectly. By now, you probably think I'm on the payroll for Aigle. I'm not - I can assure you. I am just really brand loyal, and when I find a brand I love I'm theirs. Forever.

Above, Jack is wearing a brown bodysuit and green cardigan from H&M, belt and jeans from Zara Kids, Aigle wellies, and Barbour scarf.

J is for Jack

Today I'm breaking my blogging silence (after a busy couple of weeks - sorry) to feature one of my favourite tops in Jacks wardrobe. This is the comfortable little Helvetica Infant Lap tee from American Apparel. Today was the first week back to one of my Mums and Tots groups after the summer break, and a few people commented on how his the 'J' on his tee helped to jog their memory. I was struggling to remember all the little ones names too after a 2 month hiatus, plus babies change so much in such a short time. It would have been handy if all the little 'uns wore one of these! 

Above Jack teams the top with some Zara kids grey jeans and Aigle wellies. Below he wears it with his American Apparel Infant California Fleece Hoody and H&M skinny jeans, and limited edition Leather Converse
