Boohoo Kids Spring/Summer 17

Around Christmas time last year I was introduced to the newly launched children’s wear range from Boohoo.

We reviewed some lovely pieces for number three who was really taken with the on trend, affordable clothes they had to offer.

Last week I was asked to the press preview of their spring/summer 17 collection that in my opinion has improved even more than last season.

My attention was immediately drawn towards the girls section that had a real festival vibe to it.

There were lots of floaty, floral prints, off the shoulder tops and dress and plenty of sparkle that always goes down well with the girls.

Embroidered pieces and lace detailing are key this season and Boohoo has incoperated this within their range alongside simple classics such as Breton stripes that are always a wardrobe staple.

My daughter has a real love for shoes…I can’t think where she gets it from!

Boohoo have a great range of strappy sandals that will be perfect for the much longed for warmer weather and sparkly pumps that will be real eye catchers.

Next up was the boys and they certainly haven’t been left out here.

Summer brights for the pool and stand out t-shirts and shirts for those long summer days are a plenty.

If your boys like something a little more neutral then there is a great range of cosy t-shirts and shorts in muted green and beige tones that are bang on trend whilst remaining wearable which is all that more important when thinking about boys.


The shoes range from more formal styles to everyday trainers that fit perfectly with the clothing that Boohoo have pieced together.

  

Number three was super excited to see all the new pieces and already has a long list for her summer wardrobe and j will certainly be trying out some clothes for the boys this time.

I would love to know what you all think!

Lilly And Sid:Clothes That Allow Kids To Be Kids

Wearability is always top of my list when it come to kids clothes.

There is nothing worse than the children being restricted by clothing as it makes for unhappy children and stressed parents.

A while ago the lovely people at Lilly and Sid sent me a few items to try and all I can say is both me and number four had smiles on our faces!

Their cotton garments are super soft and cosy, the contrasting prints and bright colours are always so eye catching and for me is one of the ways you can always spot a Lilly and Sid piece.


Bugs and dinosaurs and always a hit with number four and being able to give my little ones clothes that have things they love featured on them clearly go down well.

As well as outstanding clothes their customer service is second to none and whenever I’ve purchased anything from them the delivery is quick, efficient and I can’t imagine any ask being to big for them.

With Christmas fast approaching I can’t wait to see what items they have to slip under the tree!

*we were given these items for the purpose of this review and they are all my own, honest opinions.

A Chocolaty Store Opening At Jacadi Richmond

Last year I was introduced to the children’s clothes brand Jacadi at their Hampstead branch and was immediately taken by their traditional, timeless classic pieces that are made to perfection.

The brand has gone from strength to strength since hitting the UK and a brand new store has just opened in Richmond that we went to check out last night.

I decided to have a bit of quality time with number three who was more than happy to join me and see what they had to offer.

The store was a little ones dream with a Charlie And The Chocolate Factory theme complete with chocolate fountains, big sticky lollies and a real life Umpa Lumpa!


It was at this point I was extremely pleased that I hadn’t got the little ones as there is no way I would have been able to keep their chocolate covered fingers away from the beautiful clothes!

The stores collection was as stunning as I had expected.

For the boys their were beautiful soft knits that could be teamed perfectly with smart shirts and tailored trousers.



For the girls their were cute dresses and matching cardigans in bright colours that are always welcome at this time of year.


The section that always catches my eye though is for the really tiny ones.

I like babies in outfits that are firstly made for comfort as well as looking good and this is what Jacadi have down to a tee.


Jacadi falls into the upper price bracket of children’s clothing but they really are items that are made to last and with their classic designs could be passed down through the family for years to come without aging at all.

I know that I would be super happy to find a little blue gift box for any of my little ones under the tree this Christmas.

*I was supplied with a gift token for attending this event and they are all my own, honest opinions.

Stand Out From The Crowd With Lil Sprayground Backpacks

Last year I wrote a post on the trials and tribulations of having a new bag for school every term and how I didn’t cave into the pressure.

This year however bags were needed and the search started.

Instead of going for the run of the mill superhero design or the favourited Disney princesses we looked outside the box and were really taken with the look of this new mini range from Sprayground.

Sprayground are a relatively new company that have made a rapid growth over the last few years and have become a name that several celebrities favour.

With their success on the adult market they are now reaching out to all the mini fashionistas out there with their range of mini backpacks that are perfect for little ones that like something a bit different.


The hard wearing, weather resistant material is perfect for transporting everything you need and the internal compartments make it easy for them to keep themselves organised.

The bright colours make them majorly appealing and easy to spot in a cloakroom full of abandoned bags.


One other great attribute is the fact that only a limited number are made, so you are really left with something individual.


With a fair few designs a simply can’t pick a favourite. What is yours?

Illuminating Camp Bestival With Five Boys Clothing

Before we left for Camp Bestival the lovely Sophia at Five Boys Clothing offered to send us a fabulous interactive glow t-shirt by Illuminated Apparel.

I just knew this quirky t-shirt  was going to be the perfect item to take away to a festival and show it off during the crazy evenings.

The t-shirt come with a UV keyring that you can us to write on the large panel at the front to bring out the fab neon colour.

The keyring is attached to a lanyard which is easy to hang around your neck so it doesn’t get lost but you can also use your mobile phone or a lazer pen to create your patterns.

There was a little bit of arguing over this t-shirt as everyone wanted to have a go and we got stopped several times by people telling us how cool it was!

As well as looking great it keeps the kids amused which is always a bonus in my book.

We opted for the black but this t-shirt is also available in blue which would look just as good.

The sizing goes all the way up to aged 12- 14 and my usually mega fussy teen said he would have loved one. 

All in all this really is more than just a t-shirt and worth getting just for the five minutes peace alone!

*we were given this t-shirt for the purpose of this review and they are all my own, honest opinions.
