Happy Mother's Day With Next

Sunday, 6 March 2016

Happy Mother's Day to all the mums out there! To celebrate this special day, Rawrgirl faves Next recently got in touch to ask if I'd like to style my mum! Next is, without a doubt, my mum's favourite store and I love them too, so of course the answer was YAAAS!

She likes to be quite casual at home but when she's out an about, she always makes an effort therefore I chose a black belted jacket, drape tuck dress, leather two part wedges & a leather messenger bag. She accessorised this with her own Kate Spade necklace. That's right, my mum is officially cooler than me.

I treated her to tea and cake at one of our favourite tea rooms on the Bristol harbourside, Montgomery's, before a nice leisurely stroll along the water. Long time readers will know this area is my favourite in the city. As I hadn't jumped on my favourite train for a little while (thankfully there were no steam train trips), we of course headed to my most-loved spot for some quick mother & daughter snaps.

I'm a huge fan of casual style (Josie, I hope you like this one), so opted for some stripes on stripes! I'm wearing the Next striped jacket, slub t-shirt, relaxed boyfit jeans, western boots & a black saddle bagThese jeans are my new faves, the fit is super duper relaxed, so relaxed they tend to fall down, but I love it because they make me feel as if I've lost weight... Hahaha! 

After a quick bite to eat, we headed to the M-Shed. I'm not sure if this museum is enjoyable for non-Bristolians, but I absolutely love it here. It's only small but it's full of so much history! We went with my grandad just before he passed & he enjoyed the walk down memory lane, remembering how the city used to be - I think his highlight was sitting in a make-shift bomb shelter - he'd built an almost identical one in his garden as a young boy where he used to hide out with his dog. Cute.

Oh hello vintage double decker green bus! I guess I have a bit of a thing for taking photos on Bristol transport. Today we're going to be heading to the centre again for some tasty afternoon tea so expect to see more of our fun day on Instagram. I love mother & daughter style posts, my mum is usually behind the camera so it's really nice to get her face on here!

What are you up to this Mother's Day? Do you like our Next outfits?
