What the Kids Wore // Nununu

Ed and I met at a rock music festival and we seem to have passed on the love of music, metal and dancing to the children.  Archie asks for heavy metal as soon as we get in the car and Finn and Cora will dance to just about anything.  I love Nununu clothing as it reminds me of Ed and I when we first met.  Their summer range is fun, playful, minimalist and perfect to rock out in.

I took these photos on the way to the beach earlier in the week and they make me think of what is to come in the teenage years.  Cora's potential boyfriends or girlfriends will have three big brothers to convince and I think they are going to be pretty protective of her!  They already call her their princess (A term I really don't like and never use) and this black dress is the perfect princess dress for this little fierce girl of mine.  The inside is soft and comfortable and the netting makes it super fun and girly.

Archie is a big fan of having his letter on a t-shirt and this vest is perfect for the summer and with a big A on the front, you can't go wrong! The shorts are comfy and cool and will be perfect for protecting his knees if he learns to skateboard this summer (He is desperate to learn)

And Finn's long shorts remind me so much of the boys in my teenage years.  They have a slightly distressed look and I think he looks awesome in them! I tried to convince the boys to stand the other way round in the photos so it read A to Z but these children know their own mind and were having none of it! I love the way they came out though, these determined little individuals, full of character and rocking their Nununu clothes.

Finn Wears 3-4 (his normal size), Archie is in 4-5 (he is usually in 5-6) and Cora is in 12-18 months (her usual size) and we find this dress quite slim fitting.  I find their sizing pretty true and their clothes are really hardwearing. We already have a lot of Nununu in their wardrobes and love how well it wears and how versatile it is.

What the Kids Wore // Angel and Rocket

  It feels like we have been waiting forever for this sunshine and I am desperate to make the most of every minute as the memory of the long winter is still so fresh in my mind.  We have our favourite hangouts with climbing trees, woodland walks and dens to explore and the boys wore their new t-shirts and shorts from Angel and Rocket on our recent trip.

The big two have spent all week in school and they love the freedom of roaming free.  They are natural explorers and Archie especially loves to climb.  Our favourite park to explore is a private one that we have a membership for.  There are no dogs, the park is so clean and they have named the different areas.  There is the climbing tree (obvious), triceratops trunk (a huge fallen knobbly trunk), the secret garden, the drop slide tree (still not sure about this one) and the rolly hills.  I took my camera along on a recent trip and got a few pictures of them playing in their new clothes.

I don't tend to do full on matching, but matching t-shirts make head counts a lot easier! These cactus ones suit all three boys and they love the soft green and bold front and the print on the back.  The biggest two are wearing Angel and Rocket shorts too which look super comfy.  The boys are wearing age 4 (Finn aged 3) ,6 (Archie aged 5) and 8 (Dylan aged 6 but very tall) and I find the fit is more 'up to' ie size 4 fits as 3-4. The quality is fantastic and everything is washing really well despite my children's love of mud.

We were sent a few other items, including another set of matching t-shirts that again are perfect for all three.  I don't find it easy finding clothes to suit a three year old toddler and a nearly seven year old but these tops are great!

What the Kids Wore // JJMB Elmer Collection

Elmer is one of those classic characters that people of all generations will recognise.  The multicoloured elephant is iconic and fun and the star of Jojo Maman Bebe's new range.  They sent us some of the items including the beautiful striped dress that Cora is wearing and the reversible hoody on Finn.  They also sell a variety of Elmer toys and books including the building blocks featured.  

We love the quality of JJMB clothing and these Elmer items are amazing.  Finn has loved showing everyone his Elmer hoody and Cora has been pointing out their matching elephants constantly! The bright colours work so well with the classic stripes too.

The new range also includes a summer romper, leggings, t-shirts and pjyjamas for 0-6 year olds.  We find the sizing quite true (Cora is wearing 12-18 months which is her normal size and Finn is in 3-4 as an average sized 3 year old).

After the children had finished playing with the toys, they climbed on to my desk chair and asked to be spun around it was the perfect match to their clothing!

Summer Family Bucket List

This beautiful Bank Holiday weather has made me so excited for summer and six weeks of having all four children at home! I have started making our summer bucket list full of things to keep us occupied over the warmer months.

strive footwear, summer bucket list

1)  Go to the beach - This one is a bit of a given for us and I am hoping to go at least once a week but it needed to be included.  Obviously every beach trip should involve ice cream.

2) Paint rocks and hide them - I love the rock hunting craze and we have been on plenty of hunts but we still haven't managed to decorate our rocks yet so this is on our list!

3) Go camping in the back garden - for the first time we have a garden that we can pitch a tent in and the boys are excited to have garden sleepovers with their friends.

4) Go on a nature 'treasure hunt' in the woods.  We have bug hunting and bird watching books, leaf identification sheets and magnifying glasses and we are all set to go exploring outdoors!

5) Spend the day at a local festival - There are a few we want to go to including a local folk festival that we attend every year.

6) Go paddling in the outdoor pool - There is a big local paddling pool that I have somehow never taken the children to . . . until this summer.

7) Pick Strawberries - It will never just be strawberries, but they are definitely the tastiest fruit to pick! I want to pick apples and plums too.

8) Fly a kite - We have a kite that we just never seem to find the time to take out but living so coastal means we are never short of wind!

9) Climb trees - Muddy knees and scuffed shoes are just part of the summer and we have a favourite park with 'climbing trees' as well as a great den to hide out in.

10) Feed the ducks - I know you are not supposed to feed them bread so we will take peas and sweetcorn and hope the kids don't eat it all before we get there!

strive footwear, summer bucket list

There is so much more we want to do, but these are 10 things that are getting me so excited for those 6 weeks off! I was recently sent some super comfy sandals from Strive Footwear which have biomechanical footbed technology which fits the natural contours of my feet and helps relieve stress on my body and reduces aches and pains.  Plus they are shiny and gold which means I have a very jealous child whose favourite colour is gold! They are perfect for looking after my feet on our summer adventures and you will see them cropping up in lots of pictures! I had their boots over the winter which were so comfy and these are just the same.

What have you got planned for the summer? What should we add to our list?

What the Kids Wore // Little Green Radicals

It has been a week of potty training here, with lots of naked time in the house, but cabin fever has caught up with us and we have needed to venture out.  We were sent a few items from the new spring summer collection at Little Green Radicals and I fell in love immediately.   You may have noticed that yellow is my favourite colour and I love the co-ordinating pinafore and shorts.  The prints are all fun, colourful, childish and playful and they are so easy to wear.  Everything is 100% organic cotton too so you don't need to worry about chemicals.

There is the smallest woodland area near to our house that is just beautiful to explore and ideal for hide and seek and that is where most of these photos are taken.  Cora is wearing a beautiful patterned top that I want to pair with shorts next time as it looks so beautiful on its own too and a pinafore dress that has an adjustable waist and straps meaning it fits all shapes and sizes and has lots of growing room!  Finn is wearing a printed tee and yellow shorts that also have an adjustable waist. 

In the second set of photos Cora has a beautiful summer dress which we layered with a plain yellow top underneath, and Finn has the same t-shirt on but with the star joggers which look super comfy! You can find all these items and more on the Little Green Radicals website.  Both children are also wearing Bobux sandals.
