Lilly and Sid Children's Wear

My boys are active, they are explorers, they make mess, they play outside, they grow (at rather an astonishing rate), they eat with their fingers and they cuddle.  Their clothes need to cope with their busy lives and as they get bigger, we are definitely working out which companies withstand a toddler and which don't quite last the stretch.  With two already (and a third on the way), we have also learnt the value in investing in decent clothes that can be passed down, as ultimately it is not only cheaper than buying new each time, but much better for the environment too.

We were sent some pieces from Lilly and Sid, a boutique childrenswear company that pride themselves on gorgeous designs and exceptional customer service.  Their clothes celebrate childhood in all its colour and style and we love the unique characters.

As always, I took too many photos, but here are the boys modelling the  George Lion Pocket Set (Top and joggers - £30) and the Super Strong Monkey Man top (£20)

We did find that the body length in both styles was very short.  (You can see Dylan's vest poking out under his top.)  I do think we just needed a size up for Dylan as the sleeves were too short as well.  (My children are both tall). Archie's top was short, but the joggers came up nice and high (especially considering he is in a cloth nappy too) and so there was no exposure at all.  The clothes all felt lovely and soft and have washed really well, not losing any colour or shape,  The joggers are thick, durable and a great size - perfect for my little explorer.

The detailing on the tops is lovely, and we are big fans of the colour schemes.  Archie's lion has space for little hands (although he wasn't convinced he wanted to put them in there today).   

Overall we were really impressed with the style and quality.  The boys have been wearing these clothes for two months now and they still look as lovely as when they first arrived.  The only thing I would advice is to size up on tall children.

They have some beautiful baby stuff and a couple of bits have made it onto my wish list for baby Pretzel - I love this circus themed playsuit and this lovely star print romper
