Overall Wonderful


Everywhere you look there are signs of Autumn. But it is positively balmy. Sunny, warm, and not at all like the usual dreary Septembers in Ireland. In fact, I heard on the local radio this morning that this has been the driest September on record. We've been taking full advantage with lots of outdoor activities. We packed a picnic at the weekend and went for a long walk.


Look look LOOK at these unisex Tootsa Macginty Dungarees our newest sponsor, UK based kids clothing company Desmond Elephant sent lucky little Jack! I love these so muchos! I used to dress Jack in dungarees all the time (now Noah is wearing his hand-me-downs) until I found overalls were not so easy to get for bigger boys. Then these happened. They make him look a wee bit younger, don't you think? That's no bad thing, since he's looking like such a big fella recently. I miss itty-bitty-boy-Jack! Daddy and I could not stop coo-ing over him in these! He's wearing them with his red Converse high tops and American Apparel kids plaid shirt. I'm glad to see these can be adjusted length ways, and they have a little elasticated waist. The thick denim feels properly hardwearing, so I hope these will just keep on going, and then can be passed on to little Noah when he get's too big as well!

The very forward-thinking Desmond Elephant are so generously giving my readers 15% discount on an order with the code JACK15. (Thank you guys!) They stock loads of other amazing kids brands there, that you might want to check out. Plus, watch this space for a competition I'll be hosting to win a Desmond Elephant gift card next month.









 Here's some stuff we've been enjoying of late:

1. Noah has grown in to his Freshly Picked Moccasins. I'm dying about them! So cute!
2. Wearing baby in the Boba wrap
3. Picnic! Spaceboy cup available at Dotcomgiftshop

  5. Jack looks as wonderful as ever in his outdoor outfits. Very farm like so I'm pinning to my Farm Fashion board. I'm not surprised to hear it was the warmest and driest September on record, I'd certainly agree for Cornwall. Thank you for sharing your lovely photos on Country Kids
