My kiddos are really independent when it comes to their clothes and I love it. I let them choose pretty much everything that we we buy and they put together their own outfits every morning. Admittedly they sometimes look a little bit bonkers but who cares! I love encouraging their creativity and seeing what they come up with - and nine times out of ten they actually look awesome!
When it comes to clothes, the girls always seem to go for bold colours and prints and I'm a big fan of colour and making statements myself. We all like to mix and match vintage with new designs and I actively encourage shopping at independent stores and boutiques, mostly because it's nice to support them but also because you get some real gems, especially when you're buying second hand. A shop that encompasses both vintage AND designer kidswear is Rowdy Roddy Vintage, and recently the girls were offered some goodies from them which they were very excited about indeed.
Daisy chose the Mini Rodini Eyes sweatshirt. It was pretty fitting as she'd just mastered the art of winking that very week! Its made from organic and fair-trade cotton so is super soft and super comfy; pretty perfect attire for this time of year! Evie picked out a Beau LOves woolly mouse ears hat and has been making us chuckle with it ever since. She literally does not take it off EVER and it has accessorised some truly imaginative outfits over the past few weeks, including princess dresses and pyjamas. Its soft and fleecy and keeps her ears toasty and warm with a popper under the chin to keep the draughts out (although Evie prefers to wear it undone, like a fancy twenties pilot wearing an aviator hat).

Rowdy Roddy Vintage are one of my most favourite online stores, and have been ever since I first discovered them at the start of this year. They really are your one stop shop for all things awesome, whether that's vintage baby and kidswear, designer clothes or retro toys and homewares - AND they ship worldwide! They also have one of THE BEST Instagram feeds EVER! (Follow them here) (although maybe don't if you're like me and are likely to have to buy EVERYTHING ;)).
