#thriftythursday : sweet stripes

How cute is this little ensemble?!

You’re thinking its a Petit Bateau £45-er right? Nope, it’s £17.99 from HM!

I was dubious about the quality but I was so pleasantly surprised when it arrived today that i thought it deserved a little mention on here.

Made from really soft, light knitted organic cotton. It’s quite big so I’d be tempted to size down. (Obviously I’m keeping this size to stash away and will get the size down to wear now. And Yes my husband does hate me, thankfully he doesn’t read my posts!!)

Anyway, if you have a little boy (or girl) get it. It’s gorgeous for tiny babies and also for toddlers too as the 12-18 month I just bought is big enough for an average two year old!

Striped knitted top and bottoms £17.99

You’re welcome!

Trust me I know how beautiful they are.  Continue reading

BOY OH BOY

 How I dress my toddler boy 

I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised when I entered the realm of baby boys’ clothes when Rupert was born. I think boys can be a lot more casual than girls without looking scruffy. Plus you can have a bit more fun with motifs and things (never with colours. I avoid orange and green at all costs.)

Rupert’s daily uniform is a loose, collarless shirt or henley long sleeve tee with comfortable harem joggers or soft cords. He doesn’t have any jeans and I don’t see the need for them. Especially while he’s crawling and climbing so much. Continue reading
