#hipministyled: your (mini) fashion problems solved 

So, Abbie got in touch and asked me to help her find “summer shoes. Closed toe but still light weight” for her 2 1/2 year old little man.

Get the look: be as changeable as the weather 

So, when I left the house this morning it was a cold, damp day and was forecast to stay that way. But by midday, the sun was shining and it’s actually quite hot. Rupert’s little outfit is perfect for days like today. Summer staples that can be layered up or stripped off! Shop the look below Continue reading

#thriftythursday : sweet stripes

How cute is this little ensemble?!

You’re thinking its a Petit Bateau £45-er right? Nope, it’s £17.99 from HM!

I was dubious about the quality but I was so pleasantly surprised when it arrived today that i thought it deserved a little mention on here.

Made from really soft, light knitted organic cotton. It’s quite big so I’d be tempted to size down. (Obviously I’m keeping this size to stash away and will get the size down to wear now. And Yes my husband does hate me, thankfully he doesn’t read my posts!!)

Anyway, if you have a little boy (or girl) get it. It’s gorgeous for tiny babies and also for toddlers too as the 12-18 month I just bought is big enough for an average two year old!

Striped knitted top and bottoms £17.99

You’re welcome!

Stylish (and reasonable) kids’ swimwear is so hard to come by in the UK.

Beautiful prints and fabrics, beautiful shapes, stores dedicated to the sweetest sibling swimwear (and it’s so inexpensive.)

One day I will find a way to bring all of this stuff over to the UK. But in the meantime, I have hunted around for the best that you can get Continue reading

BOY OH BOY

 How I dress my toddler boy 

I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised when I entered the realm of baby boys’ clothes when Rupert was born. I think boys can be a lot more casual than girls without looking scruffy. Plus you can have a bit more fun with motifs and things (never with colours. I avoid orange and green at all costs.)

Rupert’s daily uniform is a loose, collarless shirt or henley long sleeve tee with comfortable harem joggers or soft cords. He doesn’t have any jeans and I don’t see the need for them. Especially while he’s crawling and climbing so much. Continue reading
