Outfit: Pompom Dress with Tweed Jacket

We had a lovely Bank Holiday Monday and spent it at my parents’ home along with my brothers and their families. 

As always, it rained and as always, my dad stood determinedly under a parasol turning sausages and burgers while my mum ran around doing the rest. It’s always such a treat to be cooked for and time with my family is very precious. Busy lives mean it’s rare that we’re all together. 

I love this & Other Stories pompom dress and wore it last month during my wonderful weekend away in Liverpool on what was a lovely warm day. Monday was on the cool side so I added my jersey tweed jacket (The Henford from Joules), which is as soft and comfortable as a cardigan and perfect for the transition between summer and autumn.

I also have this jacket in blue, and at the time of writing, both are reduced to £59.95. The new season’s collection sees one in pale grey. I’m very tempted to invest because I have found my other two to be invaluable throughout springs and autumns past.

It is very rare that I wear my hair up, but my daughter, who has hair much longer than mine, loves to experiment and I am always a willing recipient of her skills. She did a loose French plait and a messy bun and I absolutely loved it. It stayed the day and it made a lovely change.

Thank you to everyone who follows me on Instagram. My followers went over the 1000 mark on Monday and I’m thrilled. I’ve become increasingly interested in photography and I’m always looking for ways to make my Instagram feed look exciting. I often post additional photographs to those on my blog and where possible, make it as “insta” as possible.
Thank you too to everyone who follows me on Facebook, Twitter and Bloglovin. Again, I post additional content on my Facebook page particularly special offers, discount codes and relevant blog posts from the archives.

    what a lovely outfit. I wouldn't have thought to team up the jacket with the dress – it looks great on you. And your daughter has done a great job with your hair too – Mel xxx
