My Mama Style // Baabuk Shoes

I have never really been a trainers kinda girl.  I wear boots from October-ish to April-ish and then swap into sandals and there is no inbetween.  Well there wasn't until recently.  The people at Baabuk got in touch to tell me about their wool shoes and I fell in love with a pair of blue and yellow sneakers (my favourite colour combo!).

What really fascinated me though, was the materials.  The couple who started the company, Dan and Galina took inspiration from the Russian's who use wool to keep warm and developed a range of cosy slippers that had no seams, were completely breathable and naturally antibacterial.  From these slippers came the idea to make sneakers and the more I read about them, the more sense they make!

Wool is breathable, naturally antibacterial, naturally water repellent and renewable amongst many other great qualities.  This means that these shoes adapt, keeping your feet warm in the winter and cool in the summer.  All my other shoes are so season specific, but here is a pair that can be worn whatever the weather.  Because wool is antibacterial it means I don't even need to wear socks with the shoes (a huge bonus in this weather) and they get comfier every time I wear them as the wool adjusts and adapts to your feet.

The material is really soft with no seams as it is felted as one piece and the shoes are machine washable (there are instructions on the website).  I love how they are ethically produced and made and I love the style which is fun and colourful and so easy to wear.  I have worn these shoes everywhere recently and they seem really versatile. There are two varieties of shoe like this, the sneaker and the urban wooler and they come in a variety of colours to suit men and women.

I would love to try their boots in the future and am considering purchasing some for the winter as they look amazingly comfortable and warm!  They do a range of slippers for adults and children too on the Baabuk website.

The shoes were sent to me by Baabak for the purpose of this review but all thoughts and opinions are completely my own.

What the Kids Wore // Outfit Kids

It feels like we have been waiting for Spring for so long but it seems to have finally arrived and I am loving being able to send the children out into the garden every day.  We moved last summer to a house with a much bigger garden and whilst it still needs a lot of work to make it the space I would like it to be, it is full of potential and the children love playing in it.

We were sent a couple of outfits from Outfit kids and I took a few snaps whilst Finn and Cora were playing in them earlier this week.  Finn looks so grown up in his jogger jeans, speckled red t-shirt and hoody and I love Cora's oversized jumper and leggings.  She is actually wearing a size larger than she usually does as the collection starts at 18-24 months but I love the jumper a bit bigger.  I find everything quite true to size in the items we chose.

I am hoping to collect a few more outdoor toys to help spark their imaginations and keep them outdoors for longer but at the moment a football, a lawnmower and a slide entertain them for quite a while and they love racing on their bikes although Cora hasn't quite worked it out and tends to pick it up and stand to get anywhere.

What the Kids Wore // Frugi

One of the challenges of Dylan getting bigger is finding clothes for him.  The high street choices become so grown up and we both love more playful and comfortable styles for him.  I have written before about how I love Frugi for older boys and this season we were allowed to choose an outfit for each of the children from their stunning Globetrotter collection.   We stayed in a beautiful hotel at the weekend and I took some photos of the children playing around before our day out.  Their cheeky faces match the clothes perfectly!

There were so many beautiful designs and I am so happy with what I chose.  Dylan has a shark surf t-shirt and joggers with a fun pirate and fish skeleton print.  The outfit is colourful and perfect for his age. The organic clothes are soft, stretchy and suitable for everything a six year old wants to do.  Dylan is 128cm tall and wearing age 7-8 years.

Archie has an amazing Motorbike t-shirt but due to a broken collar bone he can only wear button up shirts so he is just wearing the joggers here.  The boys love matching so we went for the same style and they go with everything as well as being comfy and easy for him to get on and off, even with one hand.  Archie is about 109cm and he is in age 5-6 years.

I got Finn the same joggers as his brothers and I am amazed at how well they fit all three children despite the fact they have very different figures as Archie is very slim and Finn is wider and still wears a nappy.  Finn's t-shirt is a gorgeous bright colour and has a little tail coming up the back too.  Finn is around 95cm and wears age 3-4 years.

I chose Cora a beautiful summer dress with a snail on the front and we teamed it with some turqouise leggings and a rainbow stripe cardigan all from the new collection.  The dress will be perfect in the summer on its own but it works so well layered for the spring as well.  The whole outfit is fun and playful and I think it looks gorgeous together! Cora is 79cm tall and wears age 12-18 months.

The new collection is all organic and designed for active kids.  One of my favourite things about Frugi is how well it caters for all ages and I think these outfits suit a little toddler as much as they suit a six year old boy.

What the Kids Wore // Vertbaudet

Finally we are getting glimpses of Spring and I am avoiding any mention of a possible third 'Beast from the East' snow storm.  Everywhere I look I see daffodils sprouting, the sun is starting to warm my skin as I walk in it and we are getting outside much more. 

Vertbaudet asked me to pick an outfit for the children, and I chose this top and trousers for finn as well as a dress and coatigan for Cora.  The dress is perhaps a little too summery for this weather so you can see only a glimpse of it underneath but the coatigan is perfect!

They love visiting soft play and playgrounds, but one of my favourite places to take them is into woodland as I get more of a glimpse into how their brains work.  I love watching them explore and notice things in nature.  Everything is for climbing on and Finn is full of questions.

Finn's trousers have an adjustable waist and roll up cuffs which means they are perfect for exploring. I can roll them up when he wants to take his shoes off and paddle in puddles! His top is lovely and soft and he loves that is says pirates on it.

Cora's coatigan is warm and lined and a lovely length to keep her warm as well as being Oeko-Tex certified.  I went for age 2 although she is a very petite child and usually wears either 9-12 months or 12-18 so the arms are a little long but I think it looks great with them rolled up.  She has refused to take it off all day which is a sign that she loves it too!  Vertbaudet sell a great selection of clothes for newborns, toddlers and children

What the Kids Wore // Maxomorra

Finn adored his sister as soon as she was born, but there relationship has only got stronger as they get bigger.  Cora is no longer just a baby to stroke and kiss, she is now a playmate, an equal and an accomplice.  They snuggle up close to watch TV, they play together, they feed each other and they giggle together as they jump on my bed.

They were sent these outfits from one of our favourite brands, Maxomorra which I started buying when Dylan was only little.  Their new spring and summer collections are full of bright and playful prints and we love the crocodiles and bumblebees.

Finn is wearing the long sleeved top and baggy trousers and Cora has the twirly dress and all are made from super soft organic cotton.  I love how each print comes in a variety of different items (perfect for sibling twinning!).  I think these photos show how playful the clothing is as well as how nuts my children are!
