My Next Clothing Baby Picks

I absolutely adore buying Freya clothes and it’s very easy to get spendy when you’re on maternity leave and browse the shop fairly regularly. There are a few shops I can never resist which includes Next as their clothing is always on point. Here are a few of my favourite bits at the moment that are on my wish-list for Freya.

Cactus Blouse // 2 Piece Set // Rainbow Hoody

Flower Smock Dress // Cactus Layered Crew // Unicorn Embellished Jeans

I have seen a lot of Unicorns, Denim, Cacti trends of late and I am loving them. I can’t wait until Freya is a little bigger and toddling about as she will look adorable in some of these outfits.

It’s a Grey Day

Happy Thursday! The weather may be grim but here’s some grey buys to brighten your day.

I wanted to share my recent colour love of pale grey. I have spent hours looking through pinterest for home inspiration and decided to put together a collage of my favourite grey looks on the market right now. All of the items are from John Lewis or Next as I have been obsessed with them both recently after looking at furniture.


The first picture if of this beautiful Cocoon coat from Oasis. As you would expect, it’s on sale in John Lewis and Oasis themselves here. It’s currently retailing for £80 and I have been awe since I first laid eyes on it. Maybe when my house purchase has all gone through then I may have to treat myself to a house warming gift.

The next picture along is a gorgeous Grey Lace cami dress from next. It’s for sale at a price of £60 currently and I have major envy for this one. I love the cami style of dresses and it would be perfect for the summer.

The Jumper dress next to it is from John Lewis again and is from Whistles. The price is £95 and I have to say if I had the money to go and splurge I would have clicked checkout my basket already. It’s super gorgeous and makes me feel very Rebecca Bloomwood. (aka confessions of a shopaholic for those who don’t get the reference)

The amazing Snake-print Carvela shoes are from John Lewis again and have a price tag of £125. Some may say hefty, I would say necessary investment. I have a wardrobe full of shoes but if I won the lottery I’m confident I would buy as many as possible to need a walk in wardrobe just for shoes. Aren’t they beautiful?

The Yumi Collared shift dress, I found on the Next website for a price of £45. I love that it would work for a casual look as well as a dress for work or a smarter occasion. The collar is a check print and think it really flatters the pale grey of the dress.

Lastly is the stunning Whistles Oversized shirt dress again from John Lewis. Another beauty that strikes me as a Carrie Bradshaw look. The price is £140 but such a staple piece that would work time and time again.

All the prices I have quoted are current at the time of writing this post (22.1.15)

I hope you have enjoyed my little grey snippet and have created a pinterest board as well. Hope you can have a look and follow if you like what you see.
