What she wore: Vertbaudet dungaree dress

I bought a lot of clothes from Vertbaudet back in the day. I first discovered them when my boys were 3 and 1 and they had a fair few cute outfits from there. Not long after, I became pregnant with my daughter and my small maternity wardrobe was entirely Vertbaudet! It was way more stylish and classy than maternity clothes from anywhere else. Needless to say, my baby girl had lots of Vertbaudet when she was born too.

This carried on until she was 2 or 3, then suddenly I forgot about Vertbaudet. I’m not sure why.

But my daughter and I recently took a look at the website and I remembered how much I loved their clothes, even though my daughter is now much older. They do layering very well and create unusual, but stylish outfits which can be worn in a number of ways. And, best of all, they look more expensive than they actually are!

The first thing my daughter chose was this denim dungaree dress, which costs £17. She hasn’t worn anything like this before, but I think it’s the nicest piece of clothing she’s had in a long time!

All the button are poppers, so it’s really easy to put on for younger children (too easy in fact, she keeps trying to undo the buttons in the conventional way!). The straps adjust at the back, but we could have done with them coming up slightly higher. Maybe as this is an age 10 dress it’s slightly too big for my daughter? (Although the length of it would suggest otherwise!)

My daughter wore it with a white long-sleeved Tshirt from Next she found buried at the bottom of her drawer. Goodness knows how long she’s had it, but it’s age 7, so I guess it’s been a while!

She also wore it with these pink cable knit tights (the colour doesn’t show up very well in the pictures!) from Next and her Next warm boots, which were last year’s and I’m pleased they still fit her.

I thought she looked lovely in it. Sadly, she was so pleased with how it all went together that she refused to wear either a cardigan or coat with it. (I thought this phenomenon only started when they were at secondary school?) She was apparently ‘not cold’.

The dress would work with pretty much any colour at all. I could imagine it with navy or red, so it will be interesting to see what combinations my daughter comes up with over the next few weeks!

    • Thanks very much. That’s a good point, I hadn’t really thought about it being good for all seasons, but it definitely would be!

  2. She looks lovely! I used to buy nearly all our baby clothes from Vertbaudet. It used to be hard to find nice baby clothes back in the day especially for my son. The Europeans were way ahead of us Brits in dressing children well!

    • Thanks. That’s very true! It was nice to dress the kids in something other people didn’t have. I remember how cute and stylish my boys used to look 🙂

  3. I popped onto the site the other day as I am going to order some clothes and we are going to get the same dress! It is such good value and I really thought I would like to wear it myself! Great minds think alike 😉 x

  4. She looks great in it. It looks cool but not too old.

    N’s version of style at the moment is pulling out a pair of joggers from his drawers. He keeps moaning that all his trousers (even the newer ones I’ve just bought in the next size up) are too tight on the crotch.

    • Bless him! My kids all go through phases of moaning that certain clothes make them uncomfortable!
      That’s just what I thought about the dress – I won’t dress her like a toddler, but I don’t want her dressed like a teenager or an adult either!

    • Thanks very much, that’s very true! 🙂

  5. That is gorgeous and guess what, we have those boots too in the exact same colour!! I have just bought a denim skirt for A this week to go with her new collection of fluffy jumpers and she loves it, so that dress would go down very well. I will have to go and look at Verbaudet, I always forget them when I am looking for clothes for A

    • Why does it not surprise me that A has the same boots? We do seem to have the same (impeccable) taste! I’ve been forgetting Vertbaudet for years now, but I will make sure I go back from now on!

  6. Ooh this is fab! I’d wear this myself 🙂 Love it! It looks perfect for winter too – so cute with tights and boots 🙂

    Thanks for linking up to #FunkyKidFriday xx

    • Thanks very much! I think a lot of adults would like to wear it 🙂
