A family road trip with Fiat 500L

As some of you may already know just before Mr G came into the world we did a final family road trip as just the three of us. The lovely people over at Fiat asked if we would put their new Fiat 500L Beats to the test as it's designed for family adventures and living life to the full. It'd a real tardis for one thing with a huge boot perfect for weekends away and this would also make a great festival/camping car as you could fit all your gear inside with no problem.

Running on the beach at Tenby

During our time putting it to the test we enjoyed a great day out at Cosmeston, a little city adventure to the Museum and Bute Park and a overnight trip to Tenby in West Wales were were we had fun at Heatherton Adventure Park and exploring the coastline in the glorious early spring sunshine.

beach fun

seaside fun

Tenby is such a beautiful and quaint seaside town in West Wales and has become one of our favourite spots during the off-peak season as it get's incredibly busy here over the summer but on this occasion we pretty much had the beach all to ourselves and sitting in the sunshine it was lovely and warm and of course we indulged in some wonderful Welsh ice-cream - which is a must when your at the seaside regardless of what time of the year it is.

Mr A is such an adventurer and loves nothing more than exploring new places. He discovered that jumping off this wall at the beach onto the sand was a lot of fun and spent a could half an hour doing it over and over again going a little higher each time. Since we got back home he has been asking when we will be returning as well as when our summer camping trips will start, either way we are looking forward to an exciting summer and thanks to Fiat500 for letting us put the Beats Edition to the test - we now have major car envy.

Street Style Sunday - Spring/Summer Transition

Barbour shirt
John wears - summer Ralph Lauren jacket & shirt, I  wear - light Urban Outfitters jacket & Barbour shirt

I always find this a really odd time of the year, it's neither warm or cold but fluctuates either way on a daily basis leaving you not really know what to wear, which is why I think Mr A came down with such bad tonsillitis this past week as we had a few blissfully summery days but still with a chill in the air and trying to keep a 4yr old to wear his jumpers when he running around in the park and sun is out a near impossibility.

As we have been stuck in the house nearly all week because of Mr A being so unwell it meant no chance for an outfit post so every now and then I like to go back see what we were wearing this time last year and just like the weather it too fluctuates from thin jackets and shirts to short sleeve t-shirts and even shorts.

Joules dress
Me - HM Polka Dot shirt, Topshop jeans, Holster sandals. Denim Joules dress, Cheeky shoes

In a way it can be quite fun as you can really mix and match this time of the year from a sleeveless top with black jeans to a denim tunic depending on the daily weather. Either way with all this recent sunshine I really cannot wait to summer to arrive and my aim this year is to bring more colour into my life and more skirts for that matter.

I hope you can come and join in with Street Style Sunday and share what you have been wearing this week or simply what has been inspiring you.
