Erica lives in London (for the time being) with her husband James, a news editor and their two children Charlie, aged 5 and Lila, aged 3. She began her beautiful fashion and lifestyle blog four years ago, after working as a fashion editor on publications including The Sun and Look magazine.
We love Erica’s cool style, so we knew that she would be taking lots of amazing pictures of Charlie and Lila’s Bonfire Night style. Showing off some of our favourite pieces from our AW15 collections (including polka dot boots from Sophia Webster and fun prints from Mini Rodini), catch up with Erica’s posts and read our interview with her below.
THANKS FOR TAKING OVER OUR INSTAGRAM ERICA, CHARLIE AND LILA. WE LOVED YOUR PICTURES! DID YOU GUYS HAVE FUN?
We had so much fun! The most hilarious / terrifying thing about my blog is the photographic impact it’s had on the kids – they are both such poseurs now! I love natural images though, so it’s much more about captured moments.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE THING ABOUT BONFIRE NIGHT AND HOW WILL YOU BE CELEBRATING THIS YEAR?
It’s the day before my birthday! I’m ALWAYS excited on bonfire night! This year we will be heading to a display locally with friends. It’s the first year we’ve made a big deal about it as Lila was a bit too small to join in last year – but this bonfire night we will all be wrapping up to ‘ooooh’ and ‘aaah’ with the best of them!
WHAT WERE YOURS, CHARLIE’S AND LILA’S FAVOURITE PIECES FROM YOUR INSTAGRAM SHOOT?
I absolutely loved Charlie’s Mini Rodini coat which is just so cosy, but the print really makes it stand out from the crowd. And for Lila it had to be the Sophia Webster Mini boots – who couldn’t love them?!
Lila’s favourite piece was the Angel’s Face tutu which hasn’t been off (she even wore it as her witch costume on Halloween!) And Charlie loves his ‘Someday soon I will change the world’ sweatshirt – which is cosy but has such a brilliant message.
AND FINALLY, WHICH DO YOU LIKE BEST… TOFFEE APPLES OR TOASTED MARSHMALLOWS?
Toffee apple for me – marshmallows for the kids!
Thanks for having us Alex and Alexa!
With thanks to Erica, Charlie and Lila of The Edited X
