I absolutely love to dress up my children. It’s my guilty pleasure to spend some time on their outfits, I love them to match or at least look a little bit matchy as I like to call it. Most of the time the girls love to wear jeans and sweatshirts, or jogging bottoms if we are around the house, they both are definitely creatures of comfort at the moment. But whenever I have the opportunity to dress them up a little smarter, then I always enjoy it.
We’ve been working with Boots Mini Club over the last couple of months and I have really enjoyed making mini photo shoots (like here and here) with my girls and of course the gorgeous clothes they have sent us. This will be the last post I write, but no doubt you will see them all in Mini Club from now on, I am now a huge fan of the brand. I love to match the girls subtly all the time, but especially when it is a special occasion. A few weeks ago we went out for lunch for my Grandma’s 80th birthday, to a nice pub and restaurant with us, so it seemed like the perfect opportunity to dress up a little bit. Before we went in I had to snap some photos while we were outside.
The problem with Mads is that she won’t wear anything remotely ‘girly’ which we have all learned to accept and embrace as it is who she is, but it does make for a problem when she needs to be a bit smarter. Luckily I found this lovely little tunic top (how cute is the geometric pattern?) and jeggings which I knew she would be more than happy to wear, although at first glance she did think the top was a dress and looked a bit concerned!
When it came to LL, who is fast taking after her sister, but is still at the moment happy to indulge me by letting me put her in dresses, I found this absolutely gorgeous dress with a collar. I absolutely love it, and probably would wear it myself. It comes with the little stripy tights and I thought they looked lovely paired with her little chunky black boots. I can’t see the dress in stock anymore but this is similar.
Finally I ended up putting our baby boy in one of his first proper outfits. He has worn leggings and tops before, but to be honest most of the time he lives in baby grows, firstly because it is just comfier for him, and secondly because I think I am in denial and wanting to keep him my tiny baby for as long as possible! I loved his little shirt and pullover, it made him like a little old man, and a fair few people in the restaurant commented on how cute he looked.
I’ve absolutely loved working with Boots Mini Club over the last few months. It is always a privilege to work with brands, and I have been genuinely impressed with all the clothes. The colours, styles and patterns are really lovely and all for such good value too, with them often having multi offers on as well. (In fact at the moment they have a sale on!) It’s been really interesting to hear that a lot of people love the brand and shop there all the time, or they haven’t shopped there but are surprised to see how lovely the clothes are. It’s been great fun doing little photo shoots with the girls as well.
