Say hello to Dottie


Meet Dottie, the youngest member of our household, she is a 16 month old whirlwind of energy, incredibly cheeky, and totally fearless.

Although Dottie will be making an appearance on the blog quite regularly, she doesn’t share quite the same interests as me, hers include; shouting out random sounds, climbing up slides, eating food off the floor, other people’s shoes and general destruction! But, she is also a happy little thing, has the best wrinkle-nosed smile ever, is cute as a button, and most importantly, laughs at my attempts at being funny!




I love these shots, I didn’t intend Dottie to be the topic of my second post, and I am sure my eldest won’t be that happy about it, but when I got my camera out to try a few snaps, she posed so beautifully I just had to use them. She was totally fascinated by my SLR and actually stood still in order to get a good look at it, next time, I am sure it won’t be nearly as easy!

Oh yes, and in case you are wondering, Dottie’s skirt and top are both from Zara Kids.

My Quiet Style


Hello again! I have been procrastinating for a while now, but with a bit of encouragement, and a gentle shove, the time has come, and I’m ready to get back on the blogging wagon!

If I am honest, the main reason it has taken so long, is because I have been trying to decide whether to include photos of myself in the ‘wear’ posts.  After all, I am no fashionista, I’m not that young, and I am definitely not 6″ tall with model looks and a perfect body, plus, I’m pretty darn camera shy. But, having thought about it for a long time, I came to the conclusion, that this blog is a personal blog, my personal blog, it is about most aspects of my life and style, and how I dress is a big part of that, it’s a big part of who I am.

Having made this monumental decision, I thought it would be as good a place to start as any, so here we go, this is me, the person behind a quiet style, what I really look like, and what I like to wear!

Hopefully as time goes by, I’ll learn to feel a little less self-conscious in front of the camera, and you never know, I might even master the classic blogger poses! In the meantime, any tips will be gratefully received!
