embracing the british summer time and a trip to the city farm

If you are UK based you will undoubtedly be aware the weather of late has been..well a bit wet and miserable lets be honest! Tom has a day off in the week and although it's technically a work day for me we often try and fit in a outing somewhere. Taking a trip somewhere with kids mid-week is often a lot less stressful than going on a weekend when it's busy with other families. With Wilf starting school next year we know we need to appreciate this whilst we can!

We've been wanting to visit the new pigs at our city farm for ages but every time we've considered it it's been pouring with rain and we've hoped the wether will improve by the following week. This Monday with the week predicted 100% rain all week we just decided to go for it and made it as fun as we possible could. After all what are umbrellas and welly boots for?

I was sent this tunic from White Stuff which you might have noticed from a few of my IG pics lately (actually I wore it in yesterdays post too!). I've been wearing a bunch as it's really comfy and easy to match with lots of my clothes. As I've said before I've not been wearing a huge amount of maternity wear and instead buying items I would wear anyway but in the size up. This doesn't work for jeans because you need things to be stretchy over/under your bump but I think you can work it with tunic tops and dresses for sure.

I really love how it looks handprinted and like it would cost a lot than it does (it's currently on sale for £24 if you fancy grabbing a bargain) and the darker colour at the top makes it more interesting and flattering than the print being used on the whole tunic. You can check out the other styles they have here if you like.

The animals clearly thought we were crazy and only the ducks would peek out of their homes to great us. We did manage to peek at some cozy looking pigs and and goats all snuggled in their straw!

oh no wait, Tom spotted a sheep (doesn't he look pleased to have been dragged out in that rain, ha!)

Sometimes I feel like you can't notice I'm pregnant and then sometimes I'm like 'whoa there you are baby bump!' three months to go..

We visited the city farm cafe for a good veggie breakfast made with crops grown at the farm. They do a darn good coffee too!

Thanks to White Stuff for working with me on this post. Don't forget to check out their tunic and kaftan range!
