Now that the children have gone back to school and nursery school, I’ve done a bit of a cull of their clothes. There’s stuff that was super and worn all the time but is now too short and tight. So off to Save the Children with those things.
Last winter, my daughter got a lot of wear out of a couple dungaree dresses that my friend M kindly passed on. Because she wore a long sleeved top and tights or leggings underneath, they were warm enough but also fulfilled my daughter’s constant want to wear a dress, regardless of how utterly freezing it is outside. Plus, unless it is really soiled, denim doesn’t have to washed every time it is worn.
On the left is a dungaree dress from Boden, on the right is a pinafore dress from a place in Brighton called Toby Tiger. I’d never heard of them but my friend N mentioned them and they look like the sort of thing I really like.
I ordered a bunch of pointelle tops from Boden, along with a (reduced) top from Toby Tiger.
I don’t usually look at JoJo Maman Bebe but the other day I noticed a little girl wearing one of their dresses so I bought one for my daughter.
I love this cardigan.
My daughter’s leggings are getting a bit short so I’ve also got a few more in the next size up. These were about £4 each from Next.
My son actually had a quite a lot for Autumn already (plus he wears school uniform for most of the time). I did get him these tops from Frugi.
Last month a company I used to buy a few things from, LoveItLoveItLoveIt, closed down. The lady who ran it said she hadn’t been enjoying it for a while and now is quite unwell so isn’t trading any more.
