What the Kids Wore // Little Rose

January was far milder than I had imagined it would be and we woke up so several times to find the temperature still in double digits.  Knowing that February may change everything, we have spent as much time at the park as we can, going exploring with the little two whilst their brothers are at school and taking the scooters there after collecting them for a quick whiz around before it gets too dark.

A local mum got in touch recently to ask whether I would like a pair of leggings for Cora and I loved them so much that I bought a pair for Finn too.  She hand makes them from a collection of beautiful fabrics and they are perfect for these active explorers.

One of our local parks has a little nature garden and we love spotting the dog statues, looking for frogs and fish in the little pond and studying the boards that tell us about different creepy crawlies and plants we may find as we walk.  On this trip they were so busy playing and discovering that I took a step back and took some (a lot) of photos of them.  Both are wearing their leggings from Little Rose.

What Cora Wore // Kite from Growing Needs

Cora is finally heading into the next size clothing and it has given me a new reason to shop.  I love buying pretty things for her and I have a few brands that I always go back to.  I recently discovered a new one though, thanks to the lovely Rebecca at Growing Needs.  Kite make organic kids clothing for newborns to eleven years old and their designs are fun, comfortable and bright.

From soft knits to the best designed rompers and an amazing rainbow cardigan, their clothes are brilliant for this mini toddler of mine.

I love babies and toddlers in dungarees and the look like the comfiest thing to wear.  The Kite designs are fun and bright and have poppers for easy changing and they are stretchy enough for all her climbing and squatting.  I can't wait to see what designs they have next season as they will be first on my list to check out.

I can't resist rainbow clothes and this cardigan is amazing! With rainbow stripes on the front and a rainbow on the back, it goes with so much of Cora's wardrobe and it feels thick and warm.  (she loves to carry apples around the house).

 One of my favourite pieces from this collection is their rompers.  I will be honest, I saw them online initially and dismissed them but after holding one in my hands I am sold.  This is thicker than a sleepsuit and perfect for my little girl who feels the cold.  The cuffed legs and arms mean it can be worn even when it is a bit too big and the poppers make changing easy.  The neck is cuffed in the same way as the arms, meaning it slips over their heads easily and can be pulled off downwards if they have an accident.  The whole design is perfect is perfect for busy babies and toddlers and the prints are adorable.

With this windy, wet weather we have spent more time inside than usual and cosy clothes have been a must.  This two part knitted set is so easy to put on and the leggings look warmer than any others she owns.  The leggings are a grey and white stripe and have plenty of growing space on my petite child.

Kite is a lovely brand, the colours and styles, the organic cotton and the fun characters and designs.  I have loved trying it out and I know we will be ordering more in the future.  Growing Needs stocks a great selection as well as lots of our other favourite brands like Smafolk and Albababy.  You can see all these items and more on the Growing Needs website

What Cora Wore // Trendy Baby Box

Trendy Baby Box is a subscription service that offers you a complete outfit for your baby, either as a one off, or as an ongoing monthly offer and we were sent a box to try out with Cora.  I love shopping for her, and I feel like I am getting to know her style, but sometimes I am completely surprised when someone else chooses an outfit that I would never dream of buying for her and it looks so much better on.


This is how I felt with the Trendy baby box.  When it first arrived, I admired the pretty black dress, matching bloomers and tiny crocheted shoes, but when I put it on Cora I just loved it.  It really isn't our usual style but I think it looks so pretty on and she seemed really happy in it too.


On the website you fill in your child's details including their clothing size, but you have no input in the clothing that is sent to you.  I found this quite strange as I think people's tastes can vary so much, but it is a great excuse to try something different.  I would love to see a few options, the possibility to specify certain colours you don't like, or particular styles you do so that the box is better tailored to the child.


The box came well presented and the quality of the clothes is great.  I love that this outfit is really unique, you won't find any other babies wearing it and it gets a lot of compliments.  The dress fits Cora well and the little knickers have frills on the back and look adorable under the dress.  Unfortunately the crochet shoes weren't right for us as she just pulled them straight off, but for a younger baby they would look really sweet. This outfit is perfect for parties or special occasions, but it works well for exploring beautiful gardens too.  


We don't find dresses particularly practical at the moment whilst crawling is Cora's main way of getting around, but the matching knickers meant I could tuck the front of the dress in when she was on the move (this is the latest trick I have discovered whilst raising a little girl).


This box would make a lovely gift and is a great way to try out new styles and add something a bit different into your baby's wardrobe.  The Trendy Baby Box costs €42 and contains between 3 and 5 items, always making up a complete outfit.

What the Kids Wore // Egg by Susan Lazar

Half term has passed by all too quickly but thanks to the beautiful weather, we have had an amazing week.  With picnics in the park, afternoons spent building sandcastles, paddling pools in Grandma's garden and fish and chips on the beach, we have spent nearly all of the week outside, and most of that time with big smiles on our faces.

Sometimes I feel like the odd one out when I say I look forward to having all four of them at home, but I really do.  I can't wait for the school holidays and I hate sending them back to school and preschool after the freedom and slow living life of the holidays.  I am already counting down those seven weeks until we get the summer off and I can't wait.

In many ways, four isn't much harder than two, as the eldest two entertain each other so well.  They have wanted to spend all week together and I know that they are going to find it the hardest being seperated again tomorrow.  These photos are from yesterday, Saturday when I took them down to the beach whilst the bloke was working.  My mum and dad have a beach hut  and we borrowed it for a few hours, packed up our buckets and spades and camped out on the sand.  The children were each sent an outfit from Egg by Susan Lazar and they made perfect beach attire - light, comfy and tropical.


Cora has gone past the eating sand stage and she is getting better at staying in the shade when I pitch an umbrella or a tent.  She has her Daddy's pale skin and such blonde hair that I feel much happier with her there.  Her little summer romper is just adorable, it is delicate, thin and easy to crawl and climb in. 


Dylan is desperate to get in the sea and this beach is perfect as the tide comes right in.  We all played on the sand until the sea came closer and then they could run in and out as they pleased.  His shorts are so lightweight I know he is going to wear them a lot this summer and his t-shirt is covered in a fantastic palm tree print.




Archie is definitely my beach babe, he loves it here and could easily visit every day without getting bored, just like me.  He is desperate to learn to surf so I picked a surfer top for him with some palm tree shorts. They fit him so well despite his tiny waist.



Finn is a very petite two year old and wears mostly size 18-24 clothing which meant I could get him this adorable romper.  He loves matching Dylan and it is 100% cotton so easy to put on him for days at the beach.  His chubby legs aren't going to fit in it much longer sadly, so he will be wearing it as much as he can for now! 






It won't be long until we have six weeks of freedom, of beach days, of slow mornings and late bedtimes.  It has been such a wonderfully warm half term that it has really given me a taste for what is to come and I am so excited.  Cora is getting steadier on her feet cruising and I think she will start walking over the summer holidays which is going to be so much fun!  For now, her brothers are helping her along.


Tomorrow we are back to school and preschool, back to early morning alarm clocks, toddler groups and routine, but only for seven weeks - I can almost smell the freedom!

(Dylan is wearing age 7, Archie is in age 5, Finn is in 24 months and Cora in 12 months.  I would say the clothes are pretty true to size but if you are in between sizes then maybe size up, especially for chunky legged babies.  You can see the full collection on the Egg Baby website.  Postage is charged at a flat rate so it is worth doing a group order.).

What the Kids Wore // Ubang Babblechat

I love dressing my children a little different, picking things that their friends aren't wearing, shopping small from independent retailers and finding fun new brands that inspire our imaginations.  We have been working with one of them over on instagram this Spring and I am loving their cute designs.


Ubang Babblechat makes child friendly clothing, everything is comfy and bright, the designs often have something really unique, a little star that pops out a pocket, lion manes around the neck, a long elephant sleeve.  We were sent a few pieces and I love these t-shirts for the little two.  



They look so cute together, but each t-shirt is really unique too.  I chose quite a few co-ordinated bits for the little two and the big two and I love how well Ubang cater for that.  You can buy matching shorts for these t-shirts (which Finn has but it wasn't quite warm enough for) as well as vests, rompers and trousers in the same prints.  The whole collection works really well together and we have been so impressed with how well it washes and keeps its shape.



Ubang Babblechat are known for their crazy and colourful socks too and we are huge fans.  If you want socks that can be shown off and that make a statement then check them out!

All the clothes are ethically made in factories that do not employ children and are made from organic fabric and Oeko - Tex 100 certified.  The Danish company  is committed to making fun and playful clothes that do not restrict children, but encourage their adventures.  Their ranges start at 3 months and go up to 8 years.  The sizing is pretty true (Cora wears a mix of age 9 months and age 12 months and is an average 10 month old, Finn is a petite 2 year old and wears some age 18m and some 24 months, Archie is an average 4 year old in 4-6 and Dylan is a very tall 5 year old in 6-8 years.





If you pop over to my instagram you will see plenty more of the SS17 collection . . .
