Rugby International Weekend Away

Weekends away with just the husband are precious. We adore our weekends as a family of three, but when the opportunity arises to get away, just the two of us I grasp it with both hands. Two weekends ago my fabulous parents has Sophie for a sleep-over (what would we do with out the doting grand parents?!) and we headed west, to Cardiff to watch Wales vs South Africa at the Primality stadium. Ok, so it wasn’t really a romantic weekend away as we had been invited by my lovely in-laws to watch the match from my FIL’s company’s box, and as much as Mr BMB loves rugby, I’ve never been bitten by the bug, but it was a weekend away and the bar was free - I couldn’t wait! 

 We were kitted out for the match by the lovely Boden - if you haven’t tried out their clothing - you MUST, its always such great quality and just a tiny bit quirky. Standard attire for me as soon as the mercury drops is as much cashmere as possible and I was snuggled up in this beautiful cream jumper. Perfect for darting between the warm box and chilly stadium. These boots are The. Dream. High enough to length and slim your legs but chunky and not too high to be beyond comfortable to be on your feet all day. I teamed these pieces with my skinny high waisted Joni TopShop Jeans (These are AMAZING - I would never have tried high waisted jeans, but these suck in my mummy-tummy to perfection!) my Ted Baker cashmere blend coat (a few seasons old- similar here) and my orange Zara scarf (again last year’s but I’m still in love with it! Similar here.) 

 The boy was lucky enough to pick some items too, and has hardly taken off this tweed coat and cashmere scarf (they enjoy a bit of luxe too!) Luckily it was a win for Wales so the chaps were happy (despite my MIL and I having non-rugby related chats through the match - apparently this is distracting!) and we headed into the wintery evening to enjoy the Cardiff night life. Woke up missing baby, despite the lie-in and hit the road promptly post breakfast to be reunited and fed lunch by my ma and pa. Oh, we are spoilt!
