What Mama Wore

What Mama Wore:
Moredale Jacket c/o Joules
Jumper - Primark
Skirt - ASOS
Boots - Fly London
Camera - Diana F c/o Lomography 

On the weekend Tom's mum visited and she and Tom spent the afternoon with Wilf. Which was great for a whole number of reasons, quality time with daddy, granny and omgsooverdue freedom for me. My friend Dona came round and we went to my local park and gossiped and took pictures. I actually wanted to photograph Dona in some of my new owl jewellery I have made (and will share soon) but kindly she also took pics for me of my outfit and I got to test out my new Diana F. I don't ever remember not using digital (apart from when we would use a disposable camera on nights out as a teenager) so it was a complete first for me to take a picture..and not see what I had just taken. Its so exciting to see how they come out and also as I only took a few that day and will take a few more on different occasions it will be a lovely surprise to see what I have on there when they are developed. I have a giveaway coming up really soon on these lovely camera's so make sure to check back for that!

I love the green of this Joules jacket against the mustard of the jumper and the detailing of the jacket makes it that extra bit special. Did you see that Wolf button? How cute? The inside lining is the prettiest, you can see a peek of it on the collar but unfortunately I forgot to photograph it this time. I imagine using this jacket on days where a cardigan is not quite enough but a coat is that step too far. It also makes me feel like autumn walks and my parents old farm house, I used to love visiting to saw wood for the fire, there is something so therapeutic about sawing wood, its one of my top ten favourite things to do. 
After we took pictures we stopped for a drink and I got to catch up on all the latest news from our friends without being interrupted. Dona is my oldest friend, we first met at 14 in a science class. The first thing I said to her was 'do you want to sit next to me?' and then next 'do you like rats?'. To her credit she could have labelled me a crazy right there and then but I'm glad she got time to know me. If you are wondering why that was the second thing I ever said to her (and I wouldn't blame you for wondering) it's because at the time I had two pet rats who were like dear friends to me. As a socially awkward teenager without so many friends, they used to sit on my shoulders as I wrote poetry and drew pictures in the solitude of my teenage angst bedroom, oh yes. I wish I could tell my teenage self that it would all be OK just as soon as I got out of school. I digress but I thought I would share with you a awkward story right there with you ;)

As I've grown older my taste in clothes has matured a little, now I am in favour of tailored flattering clothes, but with good bursts of colour. A few more of my favourites from the Joules website are, this fox jumper (of course!) this dress, the colour is perfect and these wellies

Great colour combos! I love the little wolf button detail too. Glad you got some 'you' time!

Ohh, I love how you've styled this skirt! I keep associating it with summer, but it looks so cold weather-appropriate with a sweater and boots, I have to try that! And that jacket looks super cozy.
