wolf man jumper fat faceslow sundays and winter style

So it's finally here, the cold air nipping at my toes, finger tips tingling, rosy cheeks and warm breath rising from behind woollen scarves, and just like that it was winter. Yesterday morning as the sun streamed in though the window and dappled light danced on the wall, it felt like the perfect moment to sink into a slow Sunday filled with coffee, fresh air and cosy knits.

Weekends are such a precious time for this family of three as it's the only time that the kiddo has us all together, what with work pulling us all in different directions and continents, it's those two days that he looks forward to the most and sometimes I try and fill it with busy, yep all those jobs that need doing and things to tidy but not this weekend. Nope instead I decided to step out of our routine and do something different.

My first thoughts turned to coffee as they so often do and with the train tracks littering the lounge we made a race of getting ready to leave the house. Pulling on layers to ensure we were warm, the weather warranted the cosiness that only comes from a chunky jumper, one that can be snuggled into. Excited for our first festive jumpers c/o Fat Face, I wore the beautiful Fairisle Yoke Jumper channelling the cool Nordic vibes and grey is pretty much a staple in my wardrobe meaning it will last me though winter and look chic all in one go.

Paul is a huge fan of winter knits and the more festive the better, so this colourful Windham Placement Crew jumper was a perfect choice for him, and as he is so tall I was surprised how great a fit is was. Obviously F chose the best of all, rocking this amazing wolf jumper  – it's now the only thing he wants to wear – once dressed we headed into the city for brunch and an impromptu game of boules in Queens Square.

I love heading out for brunch on a Sunday as it's one of my favourite treats of the week, to sit and be slow, sipping good coffee and watching the world go by. Tucked on the corner of Queen's Square is Spicer & Cole with its small but beautifully proportioned interior and cool urban style. Concrete counters meet chalk board walls and the dark moody design is lit by the wood floorboards and wrap round window.

After tucking into poached eggs on sourdough and freshly squeezed orange juice, we ordered coffee to go and took our Boules over to the square. F got hooked on this when we were in France and is always eager to play, and although we had a few odd looks it was great fun and free! Plus we were kept cosy in our winter knits.

Another weekend gone, dusted off and retired to the memory banks and oh what a good one, and with Christmas on its way I can start to feel the excitement in the air. Soon after Paul headed off to Heathrow and we took a lazy walk around the harbour, sharing stories on our way home, ready to snuggle down indoors.  Oh and one more pic because I can't get enough of this kiddo!
