As you may know, if you are a parent of a toddler they always seem to be growing which means that you are updating their wardrobe a lot. I am lucky that Jess even though she is pretty tall does not seem to grow very fast which means that I can get her some nicer clothes which may be a little more expensive than I would usually pay. I also like Jess to stand out a little bit which means that I regularly find myself looking on Instagram stores to see what cute clothing I can purchase for her. In the past couple of months, I have purchased a few items and thought that I would share them with you today.
The first item which I purchased was these amazing leggings from Lamb and BearThe first item which I purchased was these amazing leggings from Lamb and Bear. The company is actually owned by an amazing mummy blogger. There is a number of reasons why I purchased these the first was because Jess keeps saying that Daddy is with the Penguins so when I saw these I knew I had to have them because they have penguins on and you do not see a lot with this pattern. I also purchased them because I purchased some leggings second hand from this brand and these prints were on sale. I have a feeling that they were £11.20 I know that might seem expensive but they are such good quality.
The next couple of items are from a brand which I can not remember I am really sorry about this. If I do actually end up remembering them I will link them up. The first Tshirt which I purchased is this plain white one with arrows which says, mini teenager. As you might know, if you know Jess sometimes she can act like a teenager with her little mood swings and attitude if she does not get her own way. When I saw this I knew I had to get it because I would be able to style them with either patterned leggings or some bright coloured ones because it is such a nice plain Tshirt.
Another Tshirt which I purchased from the company whose name that I can not remember is this one which says carbs,cars, and cuddles. Yes, this is one which was technically made for boys but come on it’s 2017. Jess adores carbs and because she is such little foodie I swear she could eat constantly because she loves her food that much. Cuddles are something which she loves as well because of the fact that who doesn’t love being cuddled when they are feeling down and sometimes at the moment because she is missing daddy so much she is needing more cuddles. Cars are one thing Jess adores I am blaming Joe for this she is going to love guys who have fast cars if she keeps on like this.
The best item which we have purchased off Instagram is this lovely top from Lauren Dwyer. It actually says I am on the run from the Mamarazzi flash her a smile if she can catch me. As a blogger, I always find that I take more pictures of Jess which means sometimes as soon as she smiles I sometimes get my camera out and snap it because I want to remember the whole of her childhood because it is going super fast as it is. I picked this up in pink because of the Jess hardly owns any of this colour in t-shirts. This cost me only about £7 because I had a discount code.
This item is something which you might have seen because I got it around Father’s Day. It is this lovely top which is from t&c collection. It says I have a hero I call him my daddy. This did have happy Father’s Day under it but I asked them if it would be possible to have one without so that Jess would get more wear out of it. You may have actually seen Jess in because she wore it when she sent her parcel to Daddy. I love how this top looks on Jess it is not too plain however it is still not busy. It looks amazing teamed with leggings I am sure this is one that Daddy is going to love as well because it will be able to make his ego even larger.
The final item which I purchased was this amazing skirt which came with the bow. It is an avengers themed skirt it is handmade from a lovely lady and company called prettypenguinclothing. I adore this because the Avengers are something which I adore so does Joe and I have noticed that Jess is getting into it because she keeps learning the characters of my mugs. One day soon I might show her the films but I am sure that she might be a little bit scared of them for now. This skirt cost around £11 and I thought that was super cheap when it is homemade so you expect to pay more. The lovely lady has also started doing blankets so I am tempted to get one for Jess when the weather comes a bit cooler for her pram because it can be cold in the mornings when she travels to nursery in the autumn/winter months.
