Joules Clothing

With Autumn well and truly upon on us, thinking back to the summer that brought with it the weather we had all been craving, sunshine...Seems like a distant memory. That warm weather had shaken away any winter blues that we may have been harboring and it meant that the shorts and t-shirts could be broken out of the wardrobe and worn for the first time of 2014.

Leo had been sent a pair of new shorts from Joules, the BOB Boys Cargo Shorts and with the summer sunshine we made the very most of them. . I really liked the camouflage print and had wanted a pair in a similar style to this for a while.

With Leo being a tall toddler and with his 3rd birthday coming up, we had opted for the 3 year old sizing. They fit him perfectly and have lots of growing room, not to mention how great they look on my handsome man. So far the shorts have been modelled by Leo with his red Lightning McQueen canvas shoes and a selection of red tops.

The shorts wash well and they still look as great as they did when they were new. I think it’s important to know how clothes wash, as you really don’t want to find out that as soon as they have been through the wash a few times, that they aren’t going to last as long as you had hoped.

The BOB Boys Cargo Shorts retail at £24.95.

Along with Leo’s shorts I was also sent a rather lovely Joules Quilted Jacket. I fell in love with this coat the moment I saw it online, and when it arrived I loved it even more. The coat is fitted so it fits closely in all the right places. It looks slimming and is so comfortable to wear, perfect on a breezy day or when there’s rain in the air.

I opted for it in Black as I figured it would be easier to match up to what I was wearing on any given day, but it also comes in Navy and Red. I did really like the Red colouring but having been down this path before, I thought it would be more practical to go with Black.

The coat is:

-          Made out of premium fabric
-          Has a fitted body and sleeve
-          Quilted with cord shoulder and elbow patches
-          Contrast zip and lining detail
-          Popper fastening to the front
-          Showerproof
-          100% Polyamide
-          Machine washable

I actually found out just how shower proof this jacket was while on holiday in Cornwall back in August, it was a chilly day and I had decided this would be the perfect jacket for the weather. It was while we were out on a visit to St Michael's Mount that the torrential rain began, and it wasn't long before the persistence of the rain was dripping in on my bare skin. It has been perfect in showers, but if like me you find yourself in a never ending rain storm.. You may want a poncho to wear over the top!

This coat has quickly become my favourite, and it is a real treat for me as I have never had a coat like it before. It retails at £109 which is actually more than I have ever spent on a coat before, but I can see why it is worthy of such a price tag. You can currently grab it at the bargain price of £59!

As usual we have been really impressed with Joules, we love their clothes and we always get so much wear out of everything we have ever purchased from them.
