That glint of sunshine that we see peeking through the clouds has got me thinking about spring clothes. My tot has been wearing jumpers and cardigans, tights and jeans for too long – bring on the dresses, shorts and tees! Here’s my pick of summer 2013 clothes for boys and girls…
First up, the basics. For a classic tee, it’s all about Mini Boden. A fairly recent Boden convert, I’ve started getting a bit excited when the catalogue drops through my door (for those few minutes, I even forgive Bounty for
using shameless tactics to make money selling on my details to Boden). Mini Boden, as usual, have a brilliant array of basic tees with bold prints and bright colours – and there’s currently 15% off with free delivery and returns if you’re fast…
Mini Boden tees, from £12
When it comes to girls’ clothing, I love an unusual print. Hei Moose have just had their big Spring delivery, and I’m in love with a Maxomarra dress. I’d sling this Zara waistcoat over the top and for extra comfort when running around a park at top speed, these H&M hi-tops are a bargain at £5.99.
Maxomarra Babushka dress, Hei Moose, £19
Denim waistcoat, Zara, £17.99
Basketball shoes, H&M, £5.99
Who says buying clothes for boys is tricky? Not me. For boys’ clothing, H&M and Zara are a good place to start – their utility style pieces are functional as well as looking great. This grey flamingo Mini Rodini print tee is pricey but amazing and who would’ve thought these leather sandals are M&S?
Mini Rodini flamingo tee, Cissy Wears, £23
Red shorts, H&M, £12.99
Zara Parka, £35.99
Fisherman Riptape Sandals, M&S, from £14
