A family Fay Out in my Whitestuff Shirt



We're approaching the end of the summer holidays with the kiddoes and still trying to cram in a few trips and days out (we actually go to Cornwall today which makes me so happy!!) 
Its such a crazy time of year, by September i feel utterly exhausted from the summers activities and grateful for a bit of down time (ie sitting and drinking a cuppa without being interrupted once.. bliss!) 
So with the crazy hecticness of summer i always always opt for easy peasy dressing. I can't be doing with faffing and primping and taking ages to get ready, its not a luxury you have when you have kids, so summer means ease of wear, but not compromising on style.
White Stuff asked if i would like to try one of their Tunics for a day out with ma famille and i willingly obliged.
There was SO much great choice to choose from, gorgeous summery prints, breton stripes, or deep colour blocks.
I went for the scatter tunic in rustic jam (isn't that an awesome name for a colour!!) with the idea of being able to wear it in to autumn also, I'm thinking chunky knit cardi, forest green skinnies and tan boots could look awesome! 
But for this summers day, which was typical weird British weather, i paired my tunic with some white jeans and tan accessories.
Simple, comfy, yet effective!
Walking around St Fagans National History Museum can be warm then chillier in the shady old houses, so the tunic was the perfect choice.
We bought freshly baked welsh bread and scones with jam, gingerbread men for the kids and old fashioned sweets weighed out to the pound. It was lovely.
If you're ever in the Cardiff area i highly recommend St. Fagans for a wonderful historical day out. Its one of our favourite family places to visit.





















After test running the Whitestuff Tunic i'm totally sold (i've just placed this in my cart! lovely isn't it?!)

Have you any Whitestuff pieces? 
And what's your summer uniform?


SIDE NOTE: If you are a parent blogger who regular blogs your family days out, i take my hat off to you! Oh my god it was SO hard trying to get decent shots, we had one kid stropping and another other flapping like a crazy person (wasp swatting, there were so many wasps about!). No one kept still for shots so blurry photos galore. I was trying to act natural but pulling all kinds of weird and bizarre and unnatural 'poses'. 
Funny, but i was exhausted by the end, haha!

  5. Hi Rachel, I have not bought anything from White stuff for a few years. TBH, I felt everything had gone a bit "frumpy"....or maybe it is because I shared my secret (my arm was twisted) and a few people i know started dressing head to toe in the brand which put me off? I'm not sure! Anyway, my husband still likes their gent's range AND I have to say that you have chosen a lovely tunic for this post.
    Or is it just great styling on your part?! Either way YOU look fabulous and despite your note about exhaustion you all look like you had a good time!
    Even with those pesky wasps!!
