Clothes and Shoes Shopping Never Bores Me
I’ve had to get some clothes that suit this climate and managed to find some great, affordable bits and wanted to share them with you!
I came across MeandI, a Swedish clothing company that features women’s, baby and kids clothes. They’re all sustainably and ethically produced clothes and have some cool, unique designs which is what first caught my eye.
The company was created by two mums in 2004, as they wanted to produce clothes that would last for kids in particular, but that were also stylish. As well as being a great site to get clothes from, MeandI also offer mums the chance to make some money themselves (always a plus with me!).
For £100 you can start your own business with them by hosting parties and events to sell their clothes and you get 20% commission on everything you sell. You also get discounts on anything you want to buy which is always handy.
I love their clothes, especially the kids section as there is so many funky colours and styles that suit Chunk perfectly. I got him a gorgeous Dino Tee which he will not stop wearing, and a cute pair of baggy harem-style shorts. I also managed to get him some black sweatpants which are something I never have enough of.

I like the quality of the fabrics and the finish of the garments. You can tell they are made well and should therefore last. I look forward to Chunk testing out the trousers durability as he is great at making holes in the knees through his outdoor play.
For myself I got some boyfriend jeans in the sale which are a size smaller than usual as an incentive to shed the pounds. Thankfully I have started an exercise regime this week so it’s looking good!
I also got a lovely maxi dress which is keeping me cool during this humid weather. Considering I’m so tall it still goes down past my ankles so I’m very impressed! It fits well and the straps are adjustable which is really handy.

Preparing for winter…
And guess who else has a sale?! House of Fraser have reduced lots of their boots and these include ones that can fit my big size 10’s!
I got these black Biker Ankle Boots which have a zip fastening and two buckles. They have a very low, wide heel which is perfect for me as I can find high heels difficult to walk in.
They are very comfortable, if a bit wide for my feet, but I will just have to double up on the socks which I’m sure I will want to do judging by our recent winters!

I chose black because they will go with anything I wear and they hide the mud and dirt better, and trust me my feet always seem to find the dirtiest paths to step on.
They also have sandals on sale, so I may well be ordering some more from them as it’s so hard to find women’s shoes in my size!
I was sent these products to test for the purpose of this review. No payment was received and all opinions are honest and my own.
