Weekend Style #10

I can hardly believe it's October and that it's the weekend again! These weeks are seriously going by so quickly now, it will be soon be Christmas....and the end of my maternity leave wahhhhh *sad face*. 

Yesterday Alfie had his nursery photos and Elarna was allowed to be pictured with him......cue huge stress about what they should wear! Last years photos were so good that I have high hopes for this year and from the poses that she put them in I reckon our bank account is going to be somewhat slimmer when we see the results, it looked like there was going to be some serious cute pics! 

Before I share their outfits I've got to show you another sleepsuit! I have been banging on about my love of cute sleepsuits for the past few weeks and this weeks is a gorgeous floral number from Next (of course). I was bought this as a set of 3 at my baby shower and I love it, so nice to have a change from pink but still be girly. I love sleepsuits that fasten down the side too instead of the middle too, so much easier to do up!

Sleepsuits (pack of 3) (usually around £16.00) - Next

So as I mentioned we had the photo shoot yesterday at Alfie's nursery, I only had the 'what the hell are they going to wear' thoughts at ohhh at about 8am yesterday morning (shoot was at 10:10am haha), anyway I had a (frantic) search through Elarna's wardrobe and chose this absolutely gorgeous dress that I bought in the Joules sale a couple of months ago! It's actually 6-9 months so wasn't sure if it would fit but it does, it's only a little big around the top but otherwise it's great. I love that it came with the matching knickers, always nice to be able to hide a nappy. I paired it with one of her bigger, pink bows to complete the look! I love that the dress has so much detail on the skirt, it is absolutely adorable. 

Just look at all of that detail on the gorgeous. Joules make the most beautiful clothes ever, their full price definitely reflects that though! 

Dress (unsure of cost as purchased in sale!) - Joules

For Alfie I chose one of my favourite shirts (see here Aunty Kat we love this shirt so much!)........he's worn this quite a few times because it is so lovely on him. I paired it with some skinny jeans, the cheeky monkey looks slightly demented in the below pictures but honestly trying to get this cheeky boy raise a smile means some serious bribery!

Skinny Jeans - Nutmeg

I'm really hoping that the photos turn out well, I'm dying for some professional ones of the two of them together I have just been far too lazy to organise one for them!

What do you think of our outfit choices this week?
