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 . . .

What the Kids Wore // Geggamoja

Geggamoja is a brand that I hadn't heard of until very recently, but we have been won over by their gorgeous colours, simple styles and comfy pieces.  We were sent a few items from their newest collection and I just love this pink vest on Cora.

I was adamant in pregnancy that I wouldn't be dressing my little girl in pink, but it turns out she looks pretty cute in it, and I love this shade.  The vest is simple but beautifully made, soft and stretchy and a great fit.  It goes so well with so many of her clothes that it is quickly becoming one of her most worn items! 


Many of the pieces in their extensive collection are designed to mix and match, with common colours running through.  This hat mixes the pink with a brighter pink and you can buy matching trousers and tops too, as well as the same design in different colours (perfect for twinning siblings!).  I find the sizing pretty accurate - Cora is wearing age 3-6 months here at 5 months old.

I was also sent a couple of items for Archie but so far I haven't managed to get any good shots of him - I will update when I do! Geggamoja make clothing for newborns up to age 12 and they also do a collection of home bits and accessories.  I was sent some gorgeous bunting perfect for a nursery, soft muslins and a toy for Cora which she has become quite attached to. The colourful teddy is perfect for a newborn to snuggle up with (and chew).

What the Kids Wore // Little Green Radicals

I love finding companies that make brilliant and bright unisex clothing and Little Green Radicals capture childhood wonder in a collection that is perfect for little boys and girls.  Their clothes are always full of colour and character but the autumn winter is collection is one of my favourites so far.  The rich shades are playful and the patterns are fun. Cora and Finn were both sent an outfit from this season.

Cora's vest is a beautiful shade of purple with detailing on the front that means it works well with trousers or under dungarees.  The dungarees are soft and stretchy and match perfectly with the vest.  The little owls are adorable and the shades are very wintery.


Finn's outfit is colourful and playful and we love the rainbow striped trousers.  Everything is well cut for cloth nappies and washes wonderfully - something I need with a little adventurer like Finn.  When his outfit is outgrown it will definitely be kept for Cora !

One thing I really love about the collection is how each print works on different items too.  You can buy dresses to match Finn's top, trousers and tops to match Cora's dungarees and you can co-ordinate siblings perfectly (a guilty pleasure of mine). Check out their stunning snowsuits if you haven't already bought one, they are so snuggly and soft!

What Cora Wore // Princess and the Frock

It is Christmas party season and there are more reasons to get dressed up than ever.  I was adamant throughout pregnancy that I would not be seduced by tiny dresses, they look impractical and unnecessary.  It turns out that they are both of those things as well as being adorable and irresistible and I love dressing Cora up in a pretty dress.  I like finding ones that are a little different, girly and sweet but not pink or floral and I have found some great online sellers.

This Eden dress is from The Princess and The Frock and I love the colour, the little collar and just how sweet Cora looks in it!  It would be perfect on its own in the summer to show off those chubby baby knees but she has been wearing it with a white vest and tights and a little blue cardigan for the winter. 




The Princess and the Frock have some beautiful festive prints too and I am finding it hard to resist their stunning penguin dress at the moment.  If you have a little lady in your life then go and check them out!

What Cora Wore // Iglo and Indi

'Is it much different, having a girl?'  I get asked this all the time and at the moment, it really isn't.  Cora is a baby just as the boys were babies.  She feeds, sleeps, poops and cuddles.  She likes chewing things, standing up with support and then chewing more things - much the same as her brothers did.  Changing her nappy is obviously very different but that is about it . . . well until it comes to dressing her.  I have gone so much more girly than I imagined I would and I am loving being able to explore the other side of the shop.

My lines on what is 'for boys' and 'for girls' is pretty blurry and Finn has plenty of clothes with 'girls' written in the label.  Dresses were a step to far for me though, and whilst Cora is still non-mobile I am enjoying dressing her in them.  I love stretchy, comfy and practical.  Not too many frills or bows, not too much pink but still feminine, still 'girly'.

This fox dress from Iglo and Indi at Dapperbaby is just perfect.  The cotton is so so soft, the colour is beautiful (in case you haven't noticed I love all things yellow) and the fox on the front makes it look fun.  This dress is size 6-12 months and Cora is an average sized 5 month old.  I love that she will get so much wear from this as it fits fine now but has plenty of growing space too.  


And because this is currently my favourite thing in her wardrobe and because she was in a super smiley mood when I tried to take a photo, I took a lot of photos . . .

I paired the dress with some socks I picked up somewhere ages ago and I can't quite remember where (I think you can find them on ebay) and her Tootsa MacGinty fox hat  - I love this outfit!  We are popping tights on underneath the socks now that it is getting more chilly.

I don't think it will be long until dresses become impractical and this little lady of mine wants to start moving, so I am making the most of being able to dress her however I like!

Thank you to the lovely Emma at Dapperbaby for this dress - we love it!
