The lovely Heledd from Running in Lavender, a family friendly lifestyle blog shows us how the Running in Lavender family stay warm yet stylish in the cold.
It may be almost spring but with the current freezing weather conditions, it’s hard to even think about ditching our ‘winter uniform’ of warm coats and bobble hats. As a family we spend most of our free time outdoors at local parks, gardens, National Trust properties or just in our own back garden.
The big girls love getting out on their scooters and bikes, running free and generally enjoying the excitement and adventure of discovering new places. My parents buy us a National Trust family membership for Christmas every year, which is such a great present. It’s a gift that literally keeps giving, all year long. Each place we’ve visited offers a new adventure for the girls, a chance to discover secret play areas or tucked away trails. Believe me, if there’s something fun to be found, they’ll sniff it out.
Over the half-term break, as long as it’s not snowing or pouring buckets of rain (and that we’re not ill), we’ll be making the most of our National Trust membership and heading outdoors to find our next family adventure. Our philosophy is, wrap up warm and enjoy being outside.
We all have a warm Joules coat and bobble hat to keep us warm, so we’re ready to go! We all chose our own coat (although the big girls chose baby Iris’ pink coat). I asked everyone what they liked most about their Joules coats/ jackets and this is what they said…
Heledd – “I love the fullness of the fluffy hood and how warm and cozy this coat is. It’s like wearing a big, gorgeously soft duvet.”
Dom – “I like the fact that this jacket has so many pockets! The fabric is also really soft and it has a very cool lining.”
Poppy – “I like the rabbit right here (pointing to the logo on her coat) and the pockets, and I like the fluff on my hood, it’s like yours mummy.”
Iris – Obviously Iris doesn’t talk but we all agreed that her coat was a great fit, looked pretty and kept her lovely and warm.
Do you children have a favourite outerwear item?
