Although bright colours and pattern are saturating the shops at the moment, having neutral pieces in your wardrobe as well as in your life in general allows for an element of calm in the chaotic world of parenthood. Here are some fashion pieces you might just find some inner peace with…They are also good “oh God, we’re late, dress and run” week day style solutions.
This is the next best thing without having to resort to the “Activewear” option. Comfortable, hides any lumps and bumps and casual chic.
This outfit provides a blank canvas for a gorgeous piece of jewellery or simply throw on a leather jacket for a cool, calm and collected look (even if underneath it all there is a month’s worth of unshaven leg hair, yesterday’s bra and chipped toenail polish).
As if cashmere for us mums isn’t divine enough, Olivier Baby have done it again and released another collection of not only, some of the best quality cashmere you will come across, but also delicate Liberty print pieces which will make your heart melt. Here is a look at the new SS17 collection plus a 20% discount code. See the end of the post for details.
For the youngest members of the family, cashmere, cotton and linen rompers and bloomers make sure they are comfortable and free to move and explore. Whilst little Liberty print shirts, caps and hats make sure he or she is dressed to perfection.
When it comes to the girls, pretty meadow flower Liberty prints are teamed with sunshine yellow, bubblegum pink and raspberry red to create a bright, Summery look. I love the small button details along with small ruffles and unobtrusive frills.
Last, but by no means least, the boys. There seems to be more on offer this year. There are outfits for everyday, whereas before they felt like more special occasion outfits. I particularly love the striped tops and shorts with the biscuit cardigan – I’m basically picturing Teddy in this on our Summer holiday! Also, the bright trousers with the navy cardigan look fun as well as simply stylish.
And now for the temptation. Olivier Baby are offering minis AND MORE readers 20% off the new collection by quoting “minis20” at checkout. The code is valid for one week from today. See more on Olivier Baby and the new collection here.
Ruffles and frills are adorning all manner of clothes at the moment. They can be a bit intimidating but you might just surprise yourself if you give in, and try them…just with some styles, make sure you’re not having soup for lunch…messy…
Every season, Zara Kids releases a capsule collection for the kids, all of which is dreamily designed and all so covetable. This season is no different so I thought I’d show you the amazing pieces you can be getting for your little ones at the moment.
The Girls’ collection features dusky neutrals with a few ruffles and bows added. Particular favourites for me are the dungarees pictured below along with the pink romper suit with ruffled cap sleeves and the gingham smock top, again with a subtle ruffle detail. All available here.
The boys collection features a dusty charcoal base palette with prints evoking adventure and holidays to warmer climates. Favourites from this collection include the “Bonjour” sweatshirt, the cactus leggings and palm tree T-shirt. All available here.
