Zara Sale Toddler Haul

A few weeks ago now it maybe longer, however, I am unsure because as we all know this year is zooming past us at a rate of knots. Zara in my local town actually closed down which is very gutting because it is a place which I love to get things like leggings from for myself when I visited, however, the women’s section was like a jumble sale and was so unpleasant I did not look. The toddler section, however, did do some damage to my bank balance because there was a great sale and their bits are amazing so I had to treat Jess to some stylish till bits in a range of sizes.

The first item which I picked up was this Minnie Mouse Hawaiian style tshirt in a beautiful Lemon colour the colour was actually one of the reasons why I picked it up because Jess really suits the colour and it is rare that you actually find something in this colour. I love how it is not your typical Mickey mouse it is a little bit different and who can resist a little bit of Disney and the work Aloha just makes me think of the summer and we all love that even if this top going to fit her in the winter months. This will look great teamed with the either jeans or some leggings this top was reduced to only £2.99.

I did say that I pick them up a couple of weeks ago which I meant that there was a little bit of the summer weather left so when I saw that there were these denim shorts reduced to only £5.99 I knew I had to pick them up. I adore shorts with tights on myself ad this is something which Jess looks adorable I think because they are not a really dark wash it does mean that you can team them with a range of coloured tights. They can be used both in the summer and in the autumn because as you know in the UK we can have warm autumn months. For some reason, I have an image of Jess with some boots wearing these I think these are something which you are going to be seeing a lot. These are in the size which Jess currently in but I think they do them up to 4 years.  

Light coloured jeans are something which Jess has never owned she seems to have a couple of pairs which are darker maybe this is because she is a toddler and they seem to get messy and I think the darker wash does not show the muck as much. However, when I spied this beautiful pair I could not resist these are going to fit her I would think in the back end of the autumn and winter months if she keeps growing like she is. Due to the fact that she has a lot of dark t-shirts I thought that she would need some lighter bottoms so that she doesn’t always look so dull and these were only £7.99 and seem like they could with stand the hammer a toddler is going to give them.

The next item which I picked up was this in 2-3 years I seem to remember and it is more of a coral than the camera actually picked up this again is another colour which I think suits Jess the reason behind this is it compliments the colour of her hair. When I saw this I new I had to pick it up for this reason and I actually thought that it was something different you don’t seem to get a lot of tops which say things like love me without it having a parent on it either mummy or daddy so when I spied this for sure it was one going in my basket. It was reduced to £2.99 and I know this is going to be one which I can pair with leggings and send her to nursery in because at the moment she is so into colouring which means she can easy ruining outfits which is never good and because this was so cheap it will not bother me as much.

While browsing I also noticed this light pink t-shirt which says love you on it and has I think it is a cat it might actually be a dog again the reason it I actually purchased it was due to the fact that it says, love, you and as I have said previously usually they say that they love a family member. I am trying to get Jess to say love you a lot more and be a nice well-mannered child so I think things like this are always going to help. I think the colour is actually really nice and is not too in your face like you can find with others so this is going to be able to be teamed with either dark or bright leggings depending on my mood. This again was only £2.99 which means that it can be used for nursery because of the fact that I am not as bothered should it get ruined.

Yes I purchased a top which was technically in the boys section but after all I am trying to teach my child that it does not matter which gender she is she can wear what ever the hell she likes. Disney is something which we really like in this house Jess at the moment seems to be really into Minnie mouse however, when I saw this I and all the bright colours which it has in it I knew that Jess would go crazy for this mickey print. I love how it is not just the typical mickey are doing some amazing poses which makes it seem so fun and this is the element I love. This is going to be one which she is going to be wearing a lot I am sure when Jess fits into this. This was only £5.99 which is not that expensive seen as it is actually a Disney piece and this can be worn with leggings jeans and maybe a plain skirt and tights we will just have to see it depends on the weather.

I think there is a theme going on here and I actually have a Disney obsession going on for Jess I picked up this yellow/mustard stripes which have Minnie on the front who looks like she is posing. I love this because I think you could use it for the summer and also the autumn Jess is one who really likes Minnie Mouse. I think these could be teamed with something simple on the bottom half which is always a bonus. Again I love it because it is not your typical Minnie Mouse t-shirt she is doing something different and has a different outfit on as well I think which is always a bonus for me because I like things which are different and I think this was £5.99 which was more expensive. 
Yes, another Disney t-shirt anyone would think that we were planning a trip to Disney which is not something we are planning at the moment I just love Disney and this is something which was in the boy’s section but I know Jess is going to rock it. I love how summer like this looks which makes me think that it would go well with the shorts which I have picked up in this haul as well. It is a white t-shirt which has stars all over the actual t-shirt which you just see. I love how Mickey is actually smiling because I think that you do not see him smiling that much actually love this does scream summer for me and was only £3.99 so a bargain for a Disney t-shirt. 
This pinafore dress is something which I thought was very different because of the fact that it included stripes and stars which are not a pattern you usually see. I love how the straps are actually ribbon like and it has little pockets which for me is very adorable. I can see Jess wearing this when it is warm with bare legs and as a dress. Then when it colder she can team it with a long-sleeved top and tights and I am sure this is going to look amazing but it might be something which does not end up suiting her and I might have to sell it we never know. This was reduced to £9.99 but I did not want to leave it behind because it looks so comfortable and something which would be great when she is playing. 
Socks are something which is essential because otherwise, she ends up with the world’s smelliest feet which are never nice. She has managed to grow out of some of the socks so it was time to replace them and when I spied these I couldn’t leave them because the pop socks will be amazing when she is actually still wearing her sandals while we have some of the nice weather still in the UK and the other socks I picked because we love dinosaurs in this house and you do not see a lot with a dinosaur print on. The swallow ones I got because I adore them and I think I might have a pair similar so we could actually match which would be fun. 
I am a sucker for things which are retro and of course, this tshirt is one of those who else remembers watching tweetie pie in the past. So when I saw this in an amazing colour blue which means that you are going to be able to pair this very easy with the tshirt because it could be teamed with leggings which are very dark in the winter months so that you do not look like you are too summery. This was actually only £3.99 as well which means that it could be used for nusury because if she does manage to paint I will not be too annoyed. I think this may be a tshirt which Daddy likes because I am sure this is something which he would have watched growing up. 
I am gutted Zara has closed here and then one in York I don’t think stocks children’s which means that I will have to order online. I adore the pieces which I picked up and will be keeping an eye out for other bits when she grows because they are so affordable even full price.

Primark August Sale Haul

Primark is a store which we all think of been cheap anyway which as I have said in the past means that it is great for toddler clothing because you do not really mind should it become ruined by something such as paint which will not end up washing out. This month actually see’s Jess move upstairs at nursury which means she will be painting more and there is more chance of her ruining outfits. With this in mind and the fact that the weather currently is pretty hit and miss I popped into primark little did I know they had a sale on. I picked these two tshirts which are long sleeved great for the colder weather we will be having for only £2. I love the cat print on this because Jess really likes animals so this cat will really suit her. The other one which came in the set was this my daddy says I am really really awsome which I am sure he would say. These are going to be great teamed with leggings on a cooler day and then for £2 I do not mind if Jess hardly wears them. 

The next item which I picked up may seem really random for a haul in August all I can say is they must have been selling some of there old stock off because it is this sweatshirt in grey which says Daddy’s Girl. It is pretty thick meaning it is going to be great when you need just something on to keep your arms warm but something easy to remove when it becomes warmer. I think this was only £1. I can imagining teaming this with some bright leggings due to the fact that the sweatshirt is not a very bright colour. For sure nobody can deny that Jess is a Daddy’s Girl she still shouts for him at least daily and he has now been gone 3 whole months it is safe to say she has not forgotten about him one bit. I think she is actually proud to be a little daddy’s girl.

The next item I picked up was thse twin pack of dress’s as you might know I think I have spoken about them in the past Jess has some amazing Minnie mouse swing dress’s which were from Primark however, they are now starting to get a little bit small for her but they have washed amazing. So when I saw that these two were reduced to £3 I coud not leave them. The pink one has like a navy heart pattern all over and the navy one has a pink pattern all over it. .These are going to be great for nursury because she can at the moment wear them bare legged and then when it becomes a little bit colder they can be paired with tights. I hope that these are going to get as much love as the Minnie ones. 
Stop the press I managed to pick this tshirt up for only 50p so this for sure is one which I do not mind if it gets ruined about the first time that she wears it. I know that this one for sure is going to be used for nursury no doubt with some patterned leggings because I seem to love them. This top is a really nice shade of pik and in the heart it says I love Daddy which I know she is going to love because of the fact that she really does love him. I think he might actually get a big head if he reads this post because it shows how much she does love him. Does anyone else wish that they could get a tshirt for this price in their own size?

The final item in this little sale haul is this black/navy summer dress which for some reason was reduced to only £3 and it still is the height of summer. If you didn’t know I don’t think you would know it was from Primark I think it looks a little bit more expensive. I can see Jess wearing this should there be any family occasion coming up and I don’t want her to ruin a dress which may have cost a lot more than this. In the summer she can wear it bare legged of course and then when the weather starts to changed and it becomes a bit colder it is one which I could team with a cardigan and tights and then she will still be able to get plenty of wear out of it. 
Have you picked up any bargin’s recently?

Next March Sale Haul

I know that one of my most viewed posts are when I share what I have purchased clothes for Jess I have a feeling that this is because everyone seems to love baby/toddler clothing.  As I think I have mentioned in previous hauls Jess is not in the clothes which she should be for her age she currently is in 9-12 months even though she is 18 months old.

The first item which I have purchased for Jess is these beautiful coral shorts I am well aware that they look more red on the picture I realise. These I picked up for the bargain price of £3 and I got them in 12-18 months this then means that she will be able to wear them in the summer when it is warm. These will be great for either day when we go out to the park or the beach even nursery because she loves to be outside.

I also purchased another pair of shorts however these one are in a light blue colour which have a little whale on them, The reason why I purchased them is because I know that when the summer months come Jess will need a lot of shorts because she loves been outdoors which means that she needs bottoms which are really practical. These are in the bigger size because of when we want to use them I think they will look beautiful with pattern tops or either really plain ones which could be bright. These again were only £3.

I also purchased some blush jeans which I think look a little bit less harsh than the typical denim jeans in the summer months. These feel a little it think which means that they will be great for the cooler days wich we know we have in the summer months. I am sure these could be dressed up in the summer with means that this could be paired with a really nice top which would be perfect for a family mean as because of the fact that she is doing really well without getting super messy when eating it means that this could be an option. These jeans I think were £10 I am unsure because they no longer have the tag on but these were not a sales purchase but I purchased at the same time as when I picked up my sale items.

This cat Gillet was purchased because Jess loves animals so I thought that it would be perfect for when it is a little bit chilly but you do not want something on your arms,  This is something which is a little bit thick but I am sure this is going to be used a lot in the late summer/autumn because me and Jess do leave the house early in the mornings and this will be perfect for this. I love the mint colour I feel like we should have more baby clothes in this colour because it is one of my favourite for little people. This I picked this again up in 12/18 months so that it is something which will be used in a few months time, I picked this up for the bargain price of £8 instead of £16.


Bottoms are a thing what with Jess I can’t seem to get enough of for some reason she seems to always have them changes. I know I said that I preferred the blush jeans that is true but I decided that Jess did need some of the actual denim ones. They are super smart or I think that they are and they can be made really casual if this is something that I want to be able to do. These are the again in the size 12/18 months which means that they will probably last till around the Christmas period if she does not have a growth spurt. Again I think that these were around the £10 mark which for me is not bad for jeans which I know are going to last because they are from Next.

I don’t know if these pyjamas may look too festive for people I have purchased these in the size 12/18 weeks I think they may actually be the size above which means that they are going to fit her in the winter months. They are very nice cotton bottoms which are something which I have loads of if I am honest I adore the checked print of these I wish they did the bottoms in my size.  The top is a cream thick and fluffy top on the outside, however, it is a little bit thinner inside which means that she is not going to boil when she is sleeping because Jess is the kind of child who is always really warm if this makes sense. I am unsure on the price of these however, I think that they were close to the £8 mark however, I could be incorrect.

The final item in this haul is something which you may have seen because it is in 9-12 months. It is a beautiful grey stripped tunic/top it has bunny on the front which has rabbits on with butterflies and has a couple of mushrooms on. I picked this top up because it is actually dull as such as it sounds bad but it is not because Jess has some really bright leggings it means that sometimes I want duller tops so that Jess does not look too bright and stand out.  Jess loves this one for some reason maybe because it has animals on and we know that Jess loves them. This top was onlu £4.50 and I think that this is one of  favouite ones in the warerobe at the moment she has been wearing it a lot recently and it’s perfect for the spring weather we are having because it is long sleeved which means that she can deal with the chill in the air.
Did you pick any bargins up in the Next sale?
