Things have been quiet on the blog lately but for good reason. January will mark 3 years since Nest & Dressed began and to celebrate I am planning to re-launch with a brand new look...

My Style: Jumper Dress & Chunky Boots for the School Run

Saturday, 12 November 2016

Welcome to my first official outfit of the day post! I've been meaning to start sharing my everyday outfits, in true blogger #OOTD style, for ages but have been struggling to find the time. So when Thomas fell asleep on the way back from nursery on Friday I'd thought I'd grab the chance to have a quick practice run in the garden. Of course Madeleine had to get involved so it didn't go entirely to plan but here are the results...

The 2016 Winter Coat Edit

Wednesday, 9 November 2016

Unfortunately, financial worries this time last year meant we had to cancel our plans and we are yet to decide on another date. But instead of feeling sorry for myself (well, maybe a little) I've been partaking in a little internet shopping. Here's a few bits that have caught my eye this week...

How cute are those White Stuff jeans?!

Monday, 31 October 2016

Embroidered jeans & bombers have been on the scene for a while but this Autumn anything goes when it comes to embroidery. Shoes, bags, frocks, the lot! I'm a sucker for some pretty embellishment so this trend is right up my street...
