The Gardener’s Cottage

people tree tunic

First, the clothes! This is a new dress. It’s from People Tree and it’s made out of a recycled sari. When you order it you have no idea what it’ll look like, you just pick either a blue or a red one and then it’s a surprise. I got the size 14 to fit bumpy and it’s huge! which is good in a way because I can definitely wear it all the way til the end, but I’m not sure what it’ll look like after, it might be a bit big. I got a stripy long sleeve tee at the same time, also in a 14, which fits quite snuggly and definitely not like a size up. Other long sleeve tees I have from PT are massive in a size 12. They sizing is so random, I love PT, but I wish they would sort it out!

I wore this to go to the Gardener’s Cottage, a new restaurant about two minutes from our flat. It’s in a small building in a park, that’s been empty for as long as we’ve lived there, but it’s recently opened as a restaurant. It’s a tiny place, with a communal set up (there are only three tables, seating 10-12 people each) that feels a bit like a dinner party. The small seasonal menu changes daily and uses lots of fresh herbs from the garden. The icecream in the photo was Meadowsweet flavour, which apparently is a plant that looks like elderflower, but tastes like honey. Yum!

    Forgive the personal remark, but you look so gorgeously glowy!
    The wee restaurant looks lovely, how nice to have it so close by.

    That iceream looks delicious. Your new dress is lovely. Maybe you could belt it if you want to wear it after you’ve had the baby.

    I’d love to sample that ice cream…and for me, expecting was always an excuse to eat generously!
