So when Mothercare offered to send the girls an outfit each, and I spotted this beaut in their sale, I couldn't resist treating her.
I bloody love Mothercare clothes. The majority of the contents of both girls' wardrobes have come from there and I am totally gutted that Daisy will soon be too big for them. Everyone knows about my love for the Little Bird range but I also love the Mothercare brand itself. If you ask me about affordable, good quality kids clothes, they are the first company to pop into my head. The girls are still wearing my old dresses and dungarees from Mothercare which are 30+ years old, and were worn by me, my sister AND my cousins, before being handed down to them! Now if that's not a perfect example of good quality and timeless design, then I don't know what is.
But back to the outfit! I wanted to pick something that would go with The Fur Coat, so decided to follow a 1960s theme. I've always loved black patent shoes and woolly tights so they were easy to choose (by the way, in my opinion Mothercare sell the BEST tights for kids. Their multipacks are only a couple of pounds more expensive than certain cheapie shops we all frequent, but the tights do not end up baggy and ruined after a few washes like the cheaper versions do).
Next up I chose a little sixties style swing dress - I love the three quarter length sleeves and the neckline, plus it's made from a super soft jersey fabric (AND it has pockets).
A cardigan is an essential layer in this weather and I chose the pink ribbed one as we already have it in other colours and know it washes well and is a good fit.
As you can see, Evie loved having her photo taken for this post ;) But in all seriousness, what a cute outfit to brighten up a cold and misty morning!
1. Pink flower swing dress, £10 // 2. Pink ribbed cardigan, £10 // 3. Faux fur coat, £15 (half price in the sale - get yours while you can!) // 4. Patent black T-bar shoes, £16-£18 // 5. Black tights (pack of three), £8
