Winter Wrap-up-fashion for children

I was invited to take my daughter to the press launch of Santa’s Grotto last Friday in a well respected Birmingham department store.

Although she had great fun playing in all the fake snow she wasn’t as keen on Santa, even though he was lovely!  She came back home however happily covered with fake snow from head to foot and we got a few odd looks on the bus!

This brought home the fact to me that winter has truly arrived and the last thing I feel like is going outside in the cold but it’s only natural that my children don’t feel the same. In fact you can be guaranteed that at the first hint of real snow they are going to be charging out of the house to go and play in it!

I don’t want to stop them enjoying themselves but I also don’t want them playing out in their party clothes and getting soaked. Let’s face it I am the one who’s left with the wash load after!

With girls it’s even worse for me as they love dresses, my 6 year old is a bit of a diva and may wear a pair of skinny leg jeans on occasion but otherwise she has to be wearing a frock.

This is where I compromise, woollen dresses are brilliant, not only do they look nice on, they also provide much needed warmth and can be worn over pretty tights of leggings with boots. This is satisfactory to me and Princess blossom both – breathes sigh of relief!

Freespirit by Very is a brand I love as its not only affordable, it’s also great for offering fashionable clothing that my daughter won’t turn her nose up at.

For the same reason Demo for boys is ideal. Boys are just as keen to look good but if you too have boys then you probably know that most boys just want to pull on their clothes as fast as possible and get outside. Demo is a brilliant range for me – I know my sons will be still be looking good but as they are so reasonably priced I don’t feel the urge to start moaning each time they go out that they need to keep clean. Good quality clothing that washes well – it ticks all the right boxes for me and my sons.

Why not take advantage of the current limited offer of Free Next Day Delivery and Returns* when you spend over £100. My son was Very happy when this hat arrived yesterday. It was ideal for keeping his head warm plus earned him extra points in the cool stakes with his mates!

* Offer applies to most fashion, textiles or small household items. Orders must be placed before 6pm for next day delivery. Limited time only.
