Trendy Tot Thursday (05/03/2015)

This time of year is hard for ‘Trendy Tot Thursday’- whenever they have cute clothes in to go out, Biscuit and Cracker at bundled up in jumpers and coats (and, let’s face it, there’s only so many times you can feature these). That’s why you’ve recently got lots of photos of the twinkles playing at home, where you can see the clothes they’re wearing.

During our recent family holiday to Italy, Biscuit and Cracker had these United Colours of Benetton organic t-shirts bought for them by their Auntie and cousin. Cracker’s is a brilliant vibrant orange colour and declares “I am 100% here and now”. Biscuit’s is a simple white with bright pink sweets on it and “pretty, sweet, cheery” written on it. They are lovely and soft and are great for layering in this unpredictable weather. Cracker’s trousers are from Zara, bought for a bargain ¬£2 at our local charity shop and worn pretty constantly by him as they are light and comfortable. Biscuit’s leggings are part of a set from Marks and Spencer, alongside a pretty smock dress we featured a few weeks ago. She loves the flower design on them and I like the colours of soft blue, soft pink and yellow. Biscuit tends to only wear trousers at home as they don’t often stay up on her petite frame!

I hope everyone has got to enjoy the recent sunny weather. According to the news we shouldn’t get used to it as we are due for rain and gale force winds (something to look forward to there)!

I hope you enjoy reading our Trendy Tot Thursday as much as I enjoyed writing it! Check out The Mother Geek and Clearly Bex for more!

Hope to see you again next week for another Trendy Tot Thursday, and please feel free to stop by and say ‘hi’ whenever you have time!

Trendy Tot Thursday (26/02/2015)

Being very British-sort-of-weather at the moment (I know, a catchphrase for any time it’s a bit miserable and grey) it’s all about layers in the Biscuit and Cracker household. I find that this helps when it’s not particularly nice, but when they can still get hot when running around.

My beautiful little Ginger Biscuit is wearing a long-sleeved white t-shirt from M & Co (it has a pretty butterfly design on it, but you can’t see that here!) with a pretty dotty t-shirt from Cath Kidston. That is the other good thing about layering, they’ll get more wear out of certain types of clothing. Her lovely pink leggings are from Mini Club at Boots, they are nice and simple and go with a wide variety of tops and tunics. We teamed her outfit with her awesome purple unicorn (what else) slippers from Clarks when we were at home. I’ll be very sad when she’ll no longer fit into them as they’re pretty cool!

My handsome little man, Cracker, is wearing a long-sleeved stripey t-shirt from Mini Club at Boots with a funky Elmo t-shirt over the top. This, and the comfy, cosy grey trousers are from George at Asda. He is definitely one that benefits from being able to take off a layer of clothing after running, jumping and climbing everywhere as little boys are apt to do! Children really love Elmo, don’t they?!
