#OOTW Olivia's non uniform day

This week we are on half term and Olivia's school had a non uniform day on Friday for the last day of term (and as an excuse to make us all chip in for the summer fayre next weekend!

Olivia loves her character clothing but I am a little more picky over it now she is getting older, certain things aren't meant for kids over a certain age especially as now she is in age 11-12 mostly. As suspected she chose to wear her new My Little Pony jumper I picked up in the sale at Asda for £4 again age 11-12 and as it was quite cool she paired it with some black leggings and a black vest top from Primark both age 11-12 and only £2 for leggings I think and £1.50 for vest can't really argue with those prices can you!

The boots to are Primark and cost £8 in size 3 bought in November I think and have lasted her really well, a nice comfy outfit for a day in school don't you think?

How fab are the wings on the back of the jumper! Kinda want this top for myself but shh don't tell Olivia!

#3Queens in Liverpool

Liverpool is no stranger to playing host to massive events and this weekend saw Cunard choose Liverpool to stage the Meeting of the 3 queens Queen Mary, Queen Elizabeth 2 and Queen Elizabeth on the River Mersey for the first time to celebrate their 175th anniversary.

So naturally we couldn't not go and witness this from over the 'other' side of the Mersey. By the time we made it down there, the promenade was absolutely heaving but all the standing round was worth when the 3 Queens turned up and treated us to some river dancing, even the kids enjoyed it!

Have a look at some of our pictures and apologies for the quality they were all taken on my phone.

Did you manage to catch a glimpse of the 3 Queens this year? I would love to see your pictures and/or video's

Trendy Tot Thursday 7/5/15

This week Olivia is having an extra 2 days off school thanks to the bank holiday and today's general election. On Monday I decided I needed a sofa day. Yep, that's correct I decided against going out and spending money I didn't have. Luckily the sun came out and Olivia was happy playing in the back garden with her cousin and her dolls before coming in to make pitta bread pizza's and a chocolate cake.

After an early morning shower we implemented a PJ day or Loungewear day I should say for Olivia. For her birthday I bought her the cutest Monster High PJ set. A complete impulse buy whilst browsing around Tesco. I knew she would love so I reluctantly coughed up £11! £11 for PJ's seriously! Usually I would wait for them to go in the sale and hope they would still have her size but as it was her birthday I thought why not and the baggy top and leggings style bottoms are perfect for those days when the only time you leave the sofa is to put the kettle on!

I was right and she loves the set thank god and I can encourage her to wear it as much as possible to get my moneys worth before she grows again!  I love the contrast of colours. The characters faces on the top in black and white with bits of colour for accessories on different faces. What's not to love about the pink bottoms with one of Monster High's sayings at the the bottom of one leg.

What's your outfit of choice for a lazy day around the house?
