Bonfire Attire

Bonfire Night was a drizzly affair.

But I was fully prepared!

Wrapped up against the elements in my finest winter warmers.

Bonfire attire-2

Wearing a new coat I spotted online.

I’m usually a wool coat kinda girl, but there’s nothing worse than a wet wool coat.

This little beauty may just be the most practical thing I’ve ever owned!

Bonfire attire-3

Light enough to swoosh around and layer on top of jumpers, but still keeps you dry and toasty all over.

There’s even a hood.

Bonfire attire-4

The drawstring waist creates a rather flattering silhouette, too.

Bonfire attire-5

Felt hat // Lipstick (oxblood)

Waterproof parka

Cream poloneck jumper // Shearling shrug

Skinny jeans // Cosy boots

All set for the evening’s festivities!

Bonfire attire-8

We marched across Notting Hill to Bella (who has a new blog!)’s Bonfire Party.

Please forgive the shaky snap, too pretty not to share the pathway to the party.

We all snuggled in around the fire with hotdogs and hot wine.

Even Silver May came up to town for the occasion.

We chatted away with old and new friends, roasting ourselves by the fire.

Before we knew it, the fireworks began.

Rocketing into the air and dusting the sky in fiery glitter.

The crowd watched on, mesmerised.

We oohed and ahhed, followed the crackling fireworks with rapturous applause, and returned to the fire with topped up mulled wine.

Can we make Bonfire Night a weekly thing, please? I can’t bear to wait another year!

Did you celebrate?

  • That pathway is like something off pinterest! The gold ones are my fave too but really the hotdogs trump all fireworks. Don’t you agree?

  • Katie

    What a fun night! I wish that we had something like that in the States!


  • That shrug is so cute! I celebrated on Saturday and it was my friend’s birthday too so double celebrations! x

    Bella’s new blog? Hardly!

    • Heather

      she probably accidentally linked the old one.

      Here’s the new one:

      • Rosie

        Oh yes I had, thank you Heather! Updated. x

  • I didn’t celebrate this year 🙁 The olds were on a cruise so we missed out!

    We Celebrate in Canada, so there’s no public celebrations, only family parties! We lit some sparklers on our balcony for good measure though 😉

  • What stunning pictures as always! That hot dog and wine looked so yummy!

  • That parka looks so wonderful! Is it warm and fluffy on the inside too? xx Paige

  • I would love bonfire night every week! (or maybe month) These snaps look lovely, I all these photos, I’d love to be able to take photos like these some day! These hot dogs also looks amazing, and I do love this coat, I’ve been in need of a nice one that actually protects from the gloomy rain!

    My Lovelier Days

  • I managed to miss the fireworks completely this year (I organised a doomed expedition across Dartmoor to hunt fireworks out, forgetting that the villages in Dartmoor are rather few and far between!) but ended up going to Bridgwater illuminated carnival instead which kind of made up for it 🙂 love the boots! xxx

  • I went to the display at Victoria Park and it was amazing! I loved it xx

  • I didn’t celebrate bonfire night, but I heard the fireworks from the cozy fire I was sitting next to in the pub haha. I love your outfit though, and it looks like a magical night xx

  • SUCH good pictures. They always make me feel so festive. Sophie xx

  • Looks like a lovely evening! Love the lanterns lighting up the pathway. Me and my flatmate watched the fireworks from the comfort of our living room this year, peering out the window whilst simultaneously watching Harry Potter. It was truly lovely!

  • We ended up popping over to an event held by Boohoo high up in one of London’s towers where we could see a gorgeous 360 view of london and the colour popping over the skyline. It was beautiful! We’re in the thick of planning our wedding for June and fireworks are at the top of my wish list!
