I love buying clothes for my children way more than buying for myself. I can easily get swept away in choosing new seasonal pieces, take summer for instance ‘ooh she’ll need a straw bag, sunglasses, the sandals in three colours to go with each dress, five cardigans four swimming costumes and a unicorn lilo for good measure?’
Hmmm, I’m not sure when or where I think my toddler will be strutting out in these catalogue shoot style outfits, a few key pieces would probably be a lot more sensible! So in the interest of maintaining my mental health when I stare at her wardrobe trying to pull together a stylish yet practical(she’s 2.5, who am I kidding?) ensemble, I went for three classic wardrobe staples from the new Fatface summer range which i know will be A-comfortable, and B-really bloody practical!
Fatface have recently extended their children’s clothing range to offer age 2-3 and I am VERY happy about this!! Family twinning?…YES PLEASE.
First up, who doesn’t love a Breton? It’s such a classic ‘go with anything’ piece. Under dungarees, with shorts, or jeans. The fabric of this one Is super soft, almost fluffy cotton & it’s nicely fitted with a little button detail at the neck.
Breton top *pout, models own.
Nigel wears Grey Fatface cable crew from last years winter collection.
Annie loves to be cosy, so this reversible zip up jacket was a must have. It’s SO THICK, soft, & warm…even at the beach where it was pretty windy we noticed she was sweating & had to take it off!
I think it’ll be perfect all year round, as in summer(if we ever get one) you still need something warm for those chilly mornings & evenings ?
*Annie is wearing the reversible fleece in Slate blue, age 2-3, a similar one can be found here*
When I opened our parcel these fab shorts really stood out, such gorgeous fun colours, I’m really glad we have neutral sandals this year (classic tan Saltwaters) to go with them.
Annie is quite petite, she’s almost two and a half, and usually needs a size smaller than her actual age, but these have an adjustable waist, so I can just comfortably pull them in for a great fit. They also have pockets-which she loves, let’s see what I find in there when she’s been out exploring!
The bright jewelled patterns & colours will bring sunshine to even a dreary day. Let’s hope in the next few weeks the sun pops out from it’s hiding place, we all need some warmth on our skin I think?
I hope you’ve all enjoyed your easter adventures, whatever the weather….
Look out for my next blog post, sharing my own three key wardrobe pieces!
Lots of love, Kirsty x
