We wait all year for a hot summer, but as soon as a new autumn collection hits the shops we are ready for the nights to draw in and the log fires to be lit! I’m almost disappointed when I realise its another warm day as it means I still can’t put Scarlett in her new suede boots! We’ve just hit the 18 – 24 month old clothes and what a difference it makes, the choice is overwhelming now that she is out of the baby section, far too much to review or recommend in one post…
Already a huge fan of JoJo Maman Bébé, Scarletts fail safe dress that will see her through the colder months is this beautiful little fair-isle number. It’s a cashmere mix so isn’t at all itchy and everything just seems to fit her so well from here, they have a choice of beautiful bright colours (you can also save £5 if you buy 2!) and worn with her fabulous new boots from Clarks and a pretty bow in her hair she can’t help but look so beautifully styled!
Another fabulous little outfit sent by JoJo is this pretty cord pinafore, the perfect look for Autumn, it comes in a few different colours but I am just loving purples for this season (it’s also keeping up with trends from the AW12 runways last year!), it’s just great everyday wear. One thing that I must recommend having not tried them before are their basic long sleeved tees, as usual – the quality is fantastic, I particularly love them with collars and buttons!
The Kickers Hi Kicks in pink are number 1 on my wish list for winter, I have wanted a pair of these since she was born! They are such a classic pair of cute kids shoes, and are also very practical. You can get these from John Lewis. I have come across a couple of new brands that definitely deserve a mention, probably more suited to a stroll down the Kings Road as opposed to the country park to get covered in mud and sand but just beautiful for special occasions! Check out Hucklebones and ilovegorgeous.co.uk (winners of the Junior Design Awards 2012) both for girls, although I haven’t sampled the items myself, the designs are just too stylish, at least one outfit from either store is needed for the season!
Emile Et Rose have sent some very special items for Scarlett to sample, the styles are extremely traditional and the ultimate for girly girls but worn with different accessories can be transformed in to modern day depending on your mood! Check out this fabulous little bubble coat available at Selfridges, the premium quality gives such a luxury feel, it’s definitely one we will be saving for special days and not one to be spilling her fruit shoots down! As soon as it’s cold enough, we’ll be complimenting this with a cream beret, skinny jeans and her suede boots.
Since Scarlett was born, one of our favourite brands has been Joules, beautiful prints and beautiful quality – items from their new collection are definitely on our wish list! Basics this year have come from H&M (you just can’t beat the value! Brilliant long sleeved tees starting from £2.50!) and Marks & Spencer – they have some fab coloured skinnies in at the moment. With so much choice on offer, I will have to keep you posted with any new finds along the way!
