I am thrilled to be part of Millers Magic Moment with Mum and share with you how special my mum is. I am incredibly blessed to have a mum who has always been there for me. There have been many Magic Moments with my mum, some very positive and full of joy and others encompass sadness and times of challenge. My mum has a beautiful servant heart and is always the first one to offer to help when a friend or family member is in need.
When I was pregnant with my son, I had no idea how challenging a new born would be and how dramatically my life would change. I naively expected I would take it all in my stride, continue to work and my baby would just slot nicely into my schedule. Well was I in for a shock?! During those first 6 weeks, my mum would come over to my house ... frequently! and do my washing, some housework, make sure I got some rest... and she would cook!
My mum has always been a wonderful cook - I remember many dinner parties as a child - where she would cook up a storm for her friends. I didn't have to cook for months. I recall her making small individual pies, soups and casseroles and filling my freezer with the most delicious meals. If not for my mum, I don't know how I would have coped. I am forever grateful for her love and support.
Partnering with Millers is also significant as my mum has been a long time customer of the brand, so it was fun to peruse the current range this time with a view of what I might wear rather than what my mum might wear. I was quite excited when I spotted their range of wraps and ponchos. Wraps and ponchos are a winter staple in my wardrobe irrespective of whether they are trending or not, so when I spotted the very Burberry-esque Colour Block Wrap - despite it not being all black - I felt it would be an excellent addition... a bit of a wardrobe wildcard if you like. The drama of the wrap calls for a simple support act so I went with a column of colour (black of course) with some silver accessories, also from Millers, to lighten the look.

Do you have special plans with your mum for Mother's Day?
And what about ponchos and wraps (or open ponchos as some refer to them)? Is this a garment that you have added, or plan to add, to your Autumn/Winter wardrobe? I have also purchased a grey marl poncho for this season but have my eyes open for a black jersey version too!
Linking up for Visible Monday. Do drop by.
