What she wore – Next playsuit

I bought my daughter this playsuit (is it still a playsuit if it’s got long legs?) in the Next summer sale last year to grow into for this year. And she loves it! She doesn’t normally wear trousers, but it doesn’t feel like trousers to her – it’s more girly, more colourful and less restrictive than jeans or other trousers. It’s also designed for REALLY HOT days. But such minor details don’t...

What she wore – M&S playsuit

This M&S playsuit is the perfect summer outfit for little girls – stylish, cute and comfortable – there’s no restrctions on running, climbing, digging in the sand or whatever else they might want to do. And it’s got ICE CREAMS on it. I can’t begin to tell you how obsessed my daughter is with ice cream. She can bring pretty much any situation round to a demand for ice cream. We say no, but it...

What she wore – Next summer dress

This beautiful Next patchwork dress is a proper summer dress. It’s a foreign holiday summer dress. It’s not a 17 degrees and thick cloud British summer dress.

The dress was among the things my daughter chose for herself for her birthday She started wearing it soon after her birthday – despite the ridiculously cold March and April weather. She just wore it...

What she wore: Next shorts and Tshirt

Yes, it was sunny and the temperature hit a very pleasant 19 degrees!My younger son usually lives in shorts from the end of April until the middle of October, so it’s a reflection of our appalling weather that we’d made it almost to the end of May before...

What she wore – M&S playsuit adapted for spring

Ever since she was tiny, my daughter has had the ability to adapt her clothes to make them suitable for the changing seasons – a winter dress with socks instead of tights in the autumn, a long-sleeved top and tights under a summer dress in spring or worn with socks and shoes on a rainy summer day rather than sandals.And so on a warmish May day we looked in her wardrobe to decide what she should wear. Finally it was time to say...

What she wore – Ballet class

Last autumn, my daughter passed her Primary ballet exam (after doing ballet for only six months!). Moving up to Grade 1 classes meant a new ballet uniform. This time there was no little skirt to protect the modesty and prevent the Peppa Pig knickers from flashing plus the cardigan is made of Tshirt material rather than wool, so she needed something to keep her warm and decent on the way to class.She has been coveting the Joules Royal...
