We love adventuring on the weekend. Packing the kids in the car and driving through misty mountains before unpacking them on a bed of molten pine needles and cooking soup on our trusty camp cooker. The best way to spend a winters day. You can see our past excursions to the very same forest here and here and our favourite campfire soup recipe here. Oh and a BUMP wearing post here.

I'm wearing my Distressed Skinnies from Bohemian Traders (hello jean shopping online!) because I wear them everywhere, every day. Boring, I know. I've had quite a few queries regarding the sizing on these jeans. They're a lovely slim fit and taper in at the waist meaning 2 things; 1. They don't fall down the way hipsters do. 2. They can get a little firm around the middle after a big lunch. Regardless, I'm wearing a size 10 and that are very comfortable but I really did need to stretch them out.

I'm also flogging my Slouchy Angora Cardigan and am happy to repost that after many many wears, It's still in perfect shape. No pilling. BOOM.
