Weekend Baby Style | Week 11

Welcome to Weekend Baby Style! This linky is very simple and is basically just an #OOTD. Click here for full linky explanation. My co-host is Sarah from Knott bump & Us so make sure you pop by her post and say hello! 

First thing’s first – let me say a HUGE thank you to Sarah for flying solo over the last two weeks! I’ve been on my holidays and had terrible wifi so couldn’t host. I got back last weekend so have missed 2 WBS posts in total. Boo! To save confusion I’ve kept this week as Week 11 on my blog, just so that I’m always running the same week as Sarah. I’ve really missed taking part and hosting so I’m very excited to be back this week! Secondly, let me thank everyone that came back to link up while Sarah was hosting alone. We have such loyal linkers, it is so lovely to see everyone returning each week – and very exciting to keep seeing new people too! Welcome! We’re also going to keep the style of the temporary gold spotty badge Sarah used – I came back from holiday and loved it! So even though we may tweak it over the next few weeks the style will stay the same. We hope you love it too!

We’d love you to share your little one’s outfits. It’s so simple! Join in below…

 Austin’s WBS:

I chose to choose one of Austin’s midweek outfits this week as it was simply too cute not to! It was also the day that he was celebrating turning 8 months old. Where is the time going?!

White long sleeved vestM & S

White #OOTD t-shirt – Rocket and Rose

Leopard print leggings – Zara (girl section!)

White socks – Baby GAP

Slouch beanie and scarf – Posh Kiddos (don’t forget to use code AUSTIN15 for discount if you visit their site!)

Could this t-shirt BE more appropriate for the linky?! I love it! We ordered a couple from this brand so look out for Austin wearing those soon. We didn’t do much that day – popped to my sister’s house for a play, then back home for a bath and early bedtime. This boy really loves his sleep!

Today (Friday) Austin will be wearing:

Grey slouch beanie – Posh Kiddos

Black and white scarf – Enjoy Essential

Black and white stripey top – H & M

Jeggings –  Zara (girl’s section)

Leopard Print Converse – Available from Office

This is one of my favourite outfits – I love black and white, plus the Converse are just amazing! Although this morning I’ve had to make the devastating decision to sell them 😦 They’re a little too small for Austin even though he’s only worn them twice – indoors for about an hour each time so they’re like new! Keep an eye out on my Instagram page soon if you’d like a chance to nab them at less than retail cost.

I love Austin in beanies and scarves lately too and as some of you may know, we’ve teamed up with Posh Kiddos as their rep! We’re really enjoying it and their site is absolutely amazing for leggings, tops and beanies/scarves! Well worth a look – don’t forget to use our discount code!

Special mentions this week goes to:

This fab ladybird outfit from Baby Sausages – such a gorgeous little girly outfit!

Look after my linky while I’m away! #weekendbabystyle

So, last night I posted to say I will be going abroad at 5am on Friday. I did think about hosting the linky as usual by scheduling a post to publish on Friday morning but the problem with that is that I have to manually enter my own post into the linky which confuses things a little as I’ll be thousands of feet in the air! I could have done this once I arrive to my hotel – but sadly I hear the wifi is terrible there.

imgres

I won’t be back until the following Saturday at 1am. This also means I’m going to miss the following week too! 😦 Again, I could link up on the Saturday but after arriving home on a plane a few hours before with a 7 month old – let’s face it, that ain’t gon’ happen! I also didn’t think it was very fair to put my own link up this week while away, let you all visit and comment on my blog but then not have enough internet coverage to visit and comment on your own blogs in return.

Soooo…. I am going to leave the linky in the very, very capable hands of my co-host Sarah from Knott Bump & Us. If you don’t follow her on Twitter and Instagram already, please, please do so (you’ll find her social media links on her blog, so click on the link I just included to find those) otherwise you’ll miss out on the linky! We have so many lovely faithful linkers and we’d hate to lose you over the next fortnight just because you didn’t see the cue for linking.

Weekend style linky badgeSarah has just started a new job and has gone back to full time work this week – go Supermum!! This means it’s going to be a lot of work for her to make sure she gets posts ready and share on social media/her blog so would be amazing if you could all get behind her by following her and linking up as usual when she lets you know the linky is live 🙂

Thank you all so much for understanding – of course when I’m home and recovered from the flight/mountains of washing I will be looking back on the two weeks I missed and I’m really looking forward to seeing which lovely outfits you entered and commenting on how great they are! Sarah will also have the lovely job of choosing which her favourite outfits were so if you entered last week, watch out this week for who she picks – the same goes for the following week too.

See you all on the linky in a fortnight when I’ll be back on form!

I’ll try not to get too tanned…..

See ya! 🙂 ❤

Thank you so much to everyone that entered last week – we broke our record again – 27 entries! Yay! There were so many fab fashionable outfits  it was so hard to pick one – so we chose two! Rosalie’s tartan outfit from Macy’s was so beautiful and adorable so we had to give her a mention.

Also we had Aria’s and she topped the super cool fashion stakes with her chequed shirt, leggings and moccs!

 Austin’s WBS:

This was actually yesterday’s outfit. I was out with the NCT girls for meals and drinks last night so I’m feeling a touch delicate today! I knew I wouldn’t be up to dressing him up, taking photos and sorting the linky by 9am today and I was right! Today is definitely a day for onesies, sofas and topknots all round. I took all the photos yesterday and I’m glad I made the effort to do so as we got some amazing shots 🙂 Isn’t this the best t-shirt you’ve ever seen?! Perfect for a little bald boy!

Austin’s first snow!

So, today is Austin’s first snow! Technically it did pretend to snow the other day but it was so pointless. Nothing settled and the ‘snow’ that was falling wouldn’t even show up in a photo, so we didn’t count that. Also it was at 5pm when it was dark, he was cranky and tired so had no flippin’ idea what was going on.

THIS is snow!

Processed with VSCOcamThis was about 3 seconds after being lifted from his cot. Look at that face! ❤

To be honest though, he looks like this every morning, so it’d be unfair for me to try and pass it off as being happy about snow. Austin is a real morning baby – he’s never once woken crying, just chats to himself quietly or sucks his thumb until I drag myself out of bed and into his room. Well trained, innit.

So anyway, snow. We quickly got dressed (in Surrey if you’re lucky enough to get snow you can guarantee it will rain swiftly after and wash away any sign of it) ready to rush downstairs for photos. Before we rushed anywhere though, we had to pick a suitable outfit. Not me of course, I planned to stay exactly how I was – pyjamas and a topknot that was in dire need of washing. Austin had to wear something appropriate – we found just the thing!

Processed with VSCOcamThis Polar Bear onesie was from Baby Gap and I’m ashamed so say he’s only worn it once before. We put it on this morning and it’s miles too small now – whoops! I might pop it on Ebay as I’m pretty sure it was about £20 new. Right, outfit sorted – off downstairs.

Austin is the most patient child in the morning, he’s always let me get him dressed, have a chat, go downstairs and let the dogs out and so on before he gets his milk. I thought that was normal until family and friends told me that their babies would quite happily take an axe to their face if they did not get their morning milk within 2.7 seconds of waking up. The bizarre thing is that he sleeps for around 14 hours a night so you’d think he’s be starving! I’m very lucky with him really.

Today though we needed photos and that was Daddy’s job. I woke Grant up and forced him (yes forced, he had no choice) downstairs. He quickly let the dogs out whilst I wrapped Austin up in a snow suit. I’m sure he’s too young to know any different but I’m pretty sure he noticed the colour difference – I’ve never seen him so interested in the garden before!

It’s a bit too chilly to keep him outdoors for more than a few minutes because he’s had a stinking cold and cough for the last week and we think he might finally be getting rid of it, so he’ll stay indoors for the rest of today (as we have done for the past 5. SHOW ME ALL THE WINE).

So there we go! Austin’s first snow 🙂

Where abouts in the country are you and do you have snow today?

Thanks for reading!

 Austin’s WBS:

Oh no – another week of comfort over style I’m afraid! Austin has a horrid cold which is making him really miserable. On days like this even pulling something down over his head can make him go into one, so it’s onesies for both of us. He doesn’t look ill here, but it was a lucky shot, trust me!

This weekend Austin is getting over a cold so is going for something quite comfortable. He’s just moved up to 6-9 month vests so excuse them being a little baggy!

Fred & Noah review. New fabrics and discount code!

Oh, how I love this brand! The owner is a lovely lady called Natalie. She lives in Essex with her family which includes her two boys Fred & Noah – of course! Natalie is a very hard working mummy juggling family life and her business, which started out as just a dream. Natalie cut and stitched and cut and stitched until her hands were sore but it all paid off as she now has her dream – her own brand Fred & Noah! Here is a little peek into Natalie’s creative space

10690163_1557902511113580_5347329220729789171_n

10441016_1543493839221114_4860222422777391909_n

I came across Fred & Noah on Twitter a few months back when somebody I follow retweeted them. All I saw was the phrase ‘baby leggings’ attached to a thumbnail of some grey leggings with monsters on and I was absolutely hooked.

10915174_1574375496132948_3463190890780665449_n

I bought 2 pairs (monsters and anchors) instantly from their Etsy shop and decided to message Natalie. Shortly afterwards we were partnering up and Austin became their brand rep! Austin is a very, very lucky boy. He now owns the entire collection and I’m thrilled to be able to give Natalie the publicity her brand deserves. Austin doesn’t mind either – he loves the camera!

10868211_869340939773978_6793874990054530690_nProcessed with VSCOcam

What I really love about this brand though, is how different their designs are. I am absolutely obsessed with baby leggings but it’s very hard to find any that are suitable for boys and that don’t come from America with huge shipping and customs charges. Fred & Noah make bold, bright leggings that you can set apart from an absolute mile.

10882227_1564969823740182_4650884567853518416_n

As much as I love Austin in leggings, it’s very hard to find any that fit him. His tummy and thighs are chubby, but he has very short legs. Fred & Noah’s leggings are unbelievably stretchy all over and so, so soft! Austin gets a skinny look to his legs but still has tons of room around the waist. My nephew also wears them and his shape could not be more different. He has stick thin legs and a tiny waist, yet the fabric sits perfectly on him too. For me, fit is a big deal as babies need to be comfortable as well as fashionable and I know this brand will never let me down. The fact Natalie now sells matching hats makes me very happy too!

10678658_1545082025728962_5371468189840783216_n

The only things in the collection we don’t own are the girly bits (sad face). I’d love to have a girl just so she could wear these! ❤

10599549_1578055039098327_4797930601384925821_n

Look how cute the girly elephants are!!

10933286_10155085807020582_1087120355_nI really cannot recommend this clothing brand enough – stitched at home in the UK by a hard working mummy – what else could you ask for? Well, maybe you might like some free postage….? Your wish is my command! Natalie has very kindly offered FTM readers free postage – just type AUSTIN15 at the checkout on her Etsy page! Go on, go!

More photos of Austin in rhinos, monkeys and anchors coming soon.

Thanks for reading 🙂

My Sunday Photo

Panda pants 🙂

I love baby leggings as you well know, but Austin now owns a different kind – more like tights, wooly and clingy with lovely patterns on the bum – they’re a bit big for him at the moment but we still love them. Although can’t you just tell Daddy got him dressed ? Look at the state of the socks. What a mess!

Austin’s Weekend Baby Style

So, this week we’ve been in Center Parcs at the Elveden Forest village and we’ve been having a lovely time. Sadly though, today is the day we travel home for the weekend so we’ve chosen comfort over style I’m afraid! The worst part is that as it’s the last day of the holiday, the clothes we have left don’t even match! Apologies everyone….
