Although the weather is slightly up and down of late, the sunshine seems to be breaking its way through and will hopefully be here to stay quite soon! Deciding upon outfit choices for kiddos can be a tough choice when the sunnier weather rears its head, especially in England where the weather can be so temperamental (rain, shine, rain, shine – please make your mind up soon!) Luckily, there are so many gorgeous companies and brands who create stunning clothing ranges for little ones – I often get severe clothes envy when I look in Addison’s amazing wardrobe! If you’re in search of some practical ideas for sunny-weather clothing or simply looking to update their current wardrobe before summer, here is just a little inspiration for both boys and girls to help you decide.
I don’t know what it is when shopping for myself online but I always end up veering off to go and look at clothes for Miss Roo. It’s so easy to do and so many of the kids clothes online today are seriously cute before you know it you’ve gone and put a couple of hundred pounds worth of stuff in your basket and forgotten what you actually came online to buy.
This is what happened this week when I fired up the computer and began looking for some shoes for Britmums (a girl can never have too many shoes, and no matter if you’re having a plump day shoes always fit). Within about 30 minutes I’d somehow digressed from looking at platform shoes to browsing the kids clothing collection at www.kandco.com and had become lost in the gorgeous fun new collection from Coleen Rooney.
Why is it that when you become a parent your kids automatically get a cooler wardrobe than you? I am certainly guilty of this and get far more pleasure out of buying clothes for Roo than I do myself (frankly it’s a lot easier) and love finding really funky items to wear when we go out as a family. She’s not a typical girly girl, although she does love a pretty dress, and one of her favourite places that we get several bits from is the kids clothing range JD Sports – particularly their trainers section.
A few weeks back I blogged about playground bumps and bruises and how Roo since starting school is always in the wars and I had to stock up the plasters and cream to heal her war wounds. Well, I have found something that worked better than this when I recently bought a pair of Silver Sense pyjamas for Roo and thanks to the clever technology Roo’s grazed knees were healed over in just a few days.
Yes, you did that right a pair of pyjamas healed her knees. Not just any pyjamas though. Silver Sense is a range of baby and children’s clothing that has been specially designed and made here in the UK and contains real silver fibres that are naturally antibacterial and help to soothe and protect skin.
I was first introduced to the Swedish children’s wear brand Polarn O Pyret when I visited Derby for shopping about two years ago. I immediately fell in love with their bright, retro and pop art colours and the fact that their clothing was really nicely made and featured a lot of organic and comfort fabrics made it a big hit with me as Roo is pretty active during weekends and her clothes need to keep up. If you love eco clothing for your kids then make sure you check out the Polarn O Pyret ECO label as this guarantees that the garment is made from 100% organic cotton.
