Has anyone else noticed a significant change in the weather in the past couple of days? There is definitely an autumnal feeling in the air and whilst I am sad to see the end of Summer, Autumn gives me a whole new wardrobe to enjoy! For me, it is all about layering but I am already thinking about key wardrobe items for the girls this Autumn.
Now this is obviously a very girly orientated list, so I will always plump for a knitted dress for the girls. There is no worrying about a trouser/skirt/top combo, it is simply pop it on and away we go. They have some gorgeous knitted dresses on the Esprit website that I am coveting this Autumn and then the only other only decision is which gilet to wear with it!
Both of my daughters have more than one (ahem) gilet. They have padded ones, fluffy ones and *possibly* ones with cute little ears that make them look like a small bear but regardless of the design, they are perfect for autumn, when it is not cold but the temperature has dropped a little. I bought this Faux Fur Gilet for my youngest daughter and everyone comments on it!
I love denim but it has to be soft for the girls (anyone would think I am raising princesses). Denim pinafores and jumpsuits with skinny legs made a bit of a come back last year and skinny jeans remain a favourite of mine. For the fashion conscious tween, she likes to tailor denim jeans with a funky top, whereas all the toddler worries about it whether she can actually pull them down quick enough to go to the toilet!
I LOVE hats. Hats are a fantastic fashion accessory and always help if you are having a bad hair day but as far as my girls are concerned, they usually can't wait to get them off their heads but as the cold nights draw in, they are a good way to keep little ears warm and with an array of choice on the high street and online, there are lots to choose from.
As a "grown up", clothes are usually a very personal thing and in turn, your choices of clothes for your children often reflect your own personality.
If you are an avid follower of fashion, you will know that many of the designer labels are featuring lace, tweed, prints, and leopard print this season, which mimic many adult fashion houses. My girls have always tried to wear my heels around the house, try on my make up and hats, so it seems that children never cease to want to dress like mommy .....
....... although I wonder what I would look like in that knitted dress?
