You may have seen on Instagram the other day that J has been sporting some gorgeous new tops which were sent to us by Little Chickie. If you've not heard of Little Chickie before, you must go and have a look! Over the past year the boys' style has been gradually shifting from high street brands to a more Scandi look, especially with that trend getting ever more popular and more of those brands hitting our retailers. I just love seeing the boys in bright colours and playful prints!
Little Chickie is an independent online boutique with clothes and gift ideas for babies and toddlers, and they stock some of the most wonderful childrenswear at such affordable prices. There are brands you've no doubt heard of such as Picalilly, Maxomorra and Blade & Rose, and there are others that are probably new to you as they were to me, like Sture & Lisa, Pigeon Organics and Love Henry.
The reason I've been sourcing the boys' wardrobe more and more from brands like this is not just because of the beautiful designs but also because the clothes last so much longer. They tend to wash much better, keep their shape and colour, and can handle the rough and tumble that children put their clothes through. While the price of brands like this might be a bit higher than high street retailers, you definitely get your money's worth!
Little Chickie sent us a couple of tops from their range; they arrived quickly by signed for delivery and were well packaged. The boys love receiving new clothes, they are always so excited to find out who the package is for and J was keen to wear his new tops straight away!
You readers know just how much I love stripes, so the long-sleeved "bonjour" top by Bob & Blossom was always going be a favourite with me! I am kind of envious and really I wish it came in my size. The long-sleeved green apple top is by Sture & Lisa and quite different to what we'd usually go for. I rarely buy green for the boys, and certainly never bright green, but this top is so fun and playful and the red trim on the neck and cuffs is a lovely contrast. I just couldn't resist and I think J looks so cute in it!
I mentioned the other day on Instagram and Facebook about how I have been struggling to find clothes for baby girl, as everything in the shops seems to be entirely pink. I don't mind pink, but only in small doses! I've spotted some beautiful pieces on Little Chickie's site, particularly from Pigeon Organics and Sture & Lisa, so I can foresee myself making a few purchases very soon, especially as there is a great sale on at the moment.
