I was extremely excited to be asked for an interview over on Fenwick’s online magazine The Daily Muse. I have always loved the children’s department at Fenwick — for years it has been my go-to place to find unique children’s gifts, and I’ve recently been really impressed with their blossoming childrenswear department which includes many of our favourite brands: Millie Manu, Caramel Baby & Child, Rachel Riley, etc.
When they asked to come over last weekend for a little photo shoot and dress-up session I just couldn’t resist. Not only was it fun to see a sneak peak of all the pretty new spring/summer children’s clothes, it was also a great chance to have the kids photographed in the house for what will probably be the last time (we’ll be moving very soon). I’m so thankful to have these photos, including some silly outtakes from the shoot (featured above).
I also enjoyed answering questions about motherhood, family, work, Instagram, children’s fashion and other parenting topics. You can read the full interview and see all the photos here. There is a reference in there to Maria Von Trapp, and if you know me even a little, you’ll know there is no bigger compliment. : )
Your little family is as adorable and beautiful as ever! Congratulations on the feature!
Such a beautiful, inspirational feature Courtney – perfect!! x
Everything looks beautiful!!! xxx
Courtney, love your blue dress – where is that from?
Many thanks 🙂
Thank you! The dress is from COS but I bought it last year. But I’m sure they have loads of nice new things in for spring this year! xx
Hi Courtney please could you tell me where your black and white benni rug is from I have been looking for something like this for a long time. I would really appreciate if you could email me back to let me know. Thanks in advance
Moving?! I can’t believe you will be leaving your house (it feels like you have only just moved in) I love your place! May I ask where you are going? Btw I want to copy so many things in your place.
Hi Courtney, I really enjoy reading your blog and your instagram account. I have a quick question for you, I have similar hair texture that you have (thick and wavy) and have been on the fence about bangs for a while now. Every time I see a picture of your new haircut I want run directly to my stylist and make the jump. Do you like them? Is there a lot of work to keep them looking good? I am also a mama and don’t want to make my morning routine too difficult. Thanks!
Thanks for your sweet comment and question about my hair.
I love having bangs! I too was worried it would be more trouble and add to my morning routine, but it hasn’t at all. I think that because my hair is so thick, the weight of my bangs keeps them from sticking up or being crazy.
The only difference is that, while I let the rest of my hair dry naturally, I have to blow-dry my bangs to straighten them out. But I only wash my hair every 4 or 5 days, so it’s really not a big issue for me. I also have a large curing iron on hand in case my bangs don’t behave. : ) xx
Hi Courtney, you got a lovely house and beautiful kids. I am moving to a new house and looking for prefect grey colour paint. Do you mind telling me what grey paint did you in the first picture please? Thanks
