Little Red Riding Hood ♥

On these mild October days we head to a new favourite haunt of ours, the fairy wood. It's a place I used to play alone as a child, carving my initials and love hearts on to the soft bark of trees, exploring new parts every time I visited.

These days I'm in good company whenever I stroll through these woods, one babe clutching close to my chest in his sling, another, my curly haired babe, running along in front of me, curiously inspecting every sight as he goes along.

This particular day he had an air of Little Red Riding Hood about him in his beautiful robin red duffle coat from JoJo Maman Bébe, searching through the woodland for a 'house' - a den made of sticks, I've never seen a soul so delighted to see a pile of sticks resembling a little house. He crouched down inside and told me he was in his kitchen doing his washing... even in the great outdoors his love for washing machines doesn't quell.

Autumn is upon us, the crisp fallen leaves are trickled along the path and at the deepest, darkest part of the wood, the part that really reminded me of the tale of Little Red Riding Hood, they laid out a thick leafy carpet across the ground. I can't see our adventures ending in this new favourite place of ours at the end of the season though, I think we'll still enjoy our strolls and wandering here even when the trees are bare.

This boys thirst for adventure and delight for the simplest in things, such as spotting cows in a field and picking up sticks from the ground just so he can point them at me and say "abracadabra", really do make me smile. To see a child immerse themselves so much in the world around them and genuinely enjoy being in the great outdoors is such a wonderful thing.

I love this coat on my Little Red Riding Hood, hence why I had to take so many pictures of him in it... I already know he'll be sporting it through the winter, especially at Christmas time, because I don't know of a more perfect shade of red or a more beautiful coat for this little curly haired boy of mine to wear.

*We were sent this red duffle coat by JoJo Maman Bébe for the purposes of this feature. The coat is available from the JoJo Maman Bébé website and in stores for £39.
