New Find: Didriksons Outdoor Wear

September 28, 2016

Indian Summer?  Not really, just a few days here and there of sunshine, but it’s still mixed with rainfall, grey clouds and unpredictability.  I therefore began looking for waterproofs for us all – something that will look good on hubby and I if it’s not raining, an every day coat if you will, and something cool but very practical for our son, Frankie who is three. Thanks to Peppa Pig, …

June 17, 2016
