Trendy Tot Thursday (17/08/2015)

Hello and welcome to another Trendy Tot Thursday with my gorgeous tots, Biscuit and Cracker. 

Last week one of our linky hosts, Clearly Bex, wrote a post about her tots’ school shoes (read it here). Well, as teeny tiny as Biscuit and Cracker are (they’ve just turned 3) they are starting at full-time pre-school in September in full school uniform. This has meant a whirl of buying blazers, ties, shirts, shorts, pinafores, socks and, last but not least, shoes. 

Although Biscuit and Cracker love their play-around-in shoes, we have always bought their ‘proper’ shoes from Clarks. I had shoes from Clarks growing up and their tradition of proper fittings and quality have lasted. Biscuit and Cracker’s feet are now big enough for their new-fangled iPad fitting system too, how exciting!!! 


It’s only when they’re next to each other that you can see how big Cracker’s feet are compared to Biscuit’s!!!! 

Thank you for reading. Hope to see you again soon. Enjoy the sun and stay safe.

Trendy Tot (13/08/2015)

Holy Moly, I am cutting it close to the wire here aren’t I?! Well good evening and welcome to a rather late edition of Biscuit and Cracker’s Trendy Tot Thursday!

We have had a rather manic few weeks and now we are all, finally, off work/childcare/etc I feel I can start relaxing a little. 

Cracker is this week, again, showing you his love for Lightning McQueen from Disney Pixar’s Cars. He adores the film, and all the relative bumf associated with it, so here he is! 

His t-shirt is from a brand called Under Armour and it is apparently Heat Gear. This was kindly given to us by a couple of friends whose son had grown out of it, so I cannot at all say where it came from. Cracker’s shorts are Lightning swim shorts from Disney Store and are awesome. They are long, comfy, baggy and fashionable and he loves them. My only downside to them is they are made of the slightly fuzzy material that picks up fur and fluff from everywhere. I hope this stops as I keep washing them more and more. We have, of course, paired this with his Lightning Crocs shoes and he is as happy as Larry

Biscuit really had this posing thing down now, hasn’t she? She is looking cool and chic in a pair of jeggings from Mini Club at Boots (rolled up to the perfect length), a bright pink peplum top with bow detail from Gap. I bought this absolutely ages ago when it was in the sale and Biscuit never looked like she would ever grow enough to fit into it but she has, and she does so yay! She has accessoried with a Doc McStuffins headband which came from George at Asda as part of a set with a dress/nightie (depending what mood Biscuit is in). I know I’m biased but I cannot get over how cute she looks!! 

Thank you for stopping by to look at what my Twin Trendy Tots have been wearing this week. Feel free to stop by next week for more wardrobe rummaging, or if you can’t wait that long; head on over to Clearly Bex or Mother Geek to check out their and other Trendy Tot Thursday posts! Have a great week! 

Trendy Tot Thursday (06/08/2015)

What a week it has been. Poor Cracker has been very ill all week and I was starting to doubt we would ever get through it. Luckily there seems to have been light at the end of the tunnel today and he is a lot perkier (unfortunately Biscuit is now a bit hot and grotty- the life of twins, hey?). 

Every now and then Biscuit and Cracker get some clothes that I cannot wait to show off. This week I went to pick up a surprise parcel from the Post Office, which turned out to be birthday presents from my gorgeous cousin, Vicki, who lives in the South of France.  


With Biscuit and Cracker being the least-alike twins every imaginable, I do not get a lot of opportunity to dress them matchy-matchy; but these t-shirts from Spoilt Rotten are amazing. We went out in Covent Garden today with them wearing them and so many people stopped to tell us how much they liked their He did it/She did it tops. Even our local priest commented when he saw us! And, as the pictures show, they work just as well with Rob and I in the photos too! 

Cracker wore his t-shirt with his usual red Boots shorts and his Lightning McQueen Crocs. Biscuit wore her with a pink Boots dress and her Frozen Crocs. Their hats and Biscuit’s sunglasses are from George at Asda. I have always loved their clothes from Mini Club at Boots; they are comfy, cute and hard wearing. 

For people wondering why they are always in their Crocs; not only are they the singularly most comfortable shoes for them to wear, but they are so easy to clean.  


After Biscuit and Cracker had spent an incredibly fun time running through the sprinkler and the mud in Soho Square Park their Crocs were filthy- we just showered them off and they’re currently drying on the balcony (the Crocs that is, not the twins; although they got showered as soon as we were home too)! 

Did you enjoy this? If you did then please head on over to Clearly Bex and The Mother Geek to see other blogger’s trendy tots and their togs! 

See you next week; do pop over and say hello whenever you’d like! 

Trendy Tot Thursday (30/07/2015)

What a beautiful day it was today, we’re just back from visiting family and enjoying the sunshine.

Last week it was Biscuit and Cracker’s 3rd birthday and we were celebrating, hence the radio silence. We were lucky that their party was on the one day that it wasn’t tiddling it down with rain.

Biscuit is wearing an amazingly pretty dress from American Apparel, I fell totally in love with it walking past their window display and had to get it for her. It’s in lovely, stretchy, comfortable material and really suits her. I put a pair of short leggings under the dress to protect her whilst playing in the playground, they are from Boots. She is wearing her beloved Frozen Crocs, which she always has on, and her Docs McStuffins baseball cap from George at Asda to protect her from the sun.

Cracker is wearing his brand new Baymax from Big Hero 6 t-shirt from Primark (he is currently obsessed with this film and all related accessories, toys and clothes). He has on the shorts he has been fitting in and wearing for over a year from Boots. They are worn as soon as I manage to wash and dry them, he loves them. He also has on his beloved Lightning Crocs and his Minion baseball cap from George at Asda.

I hope you enjoy this Trendy Tot Thursday; a lovely fashion linky brought to you by Clearly Bex and the MotherGeek– check out their blogs for more details and check out other people’s blog posts.

See you again soon I hope.
