Christmas really has taken on a whole new meaning since the littlies came along and with less than a month til the big day I am getting just as excited as they are. The tree is up, the stockings adorn the fireplace and most importantly Pom Pom, our Elf on the Shelf, has taken up residence and is proving to be very handy indeed. Whether it will mean Little A has to have years of therapy later as a consequence of having an all-seeing, Father Christmas spy in the house who knows, but for now his little face lights up every morning as he goes on the hunt to find him.
With all this festive feeling in the air, it is only natural that my thoughts have turned to what they will be wearing for The Big Day. For Little B it is going to be a toss up between this super sweet smocked berry dress by John Lewis or this more traditional tartan number by Trotters.
For Little A, I headed to Pepa & Co for this lovely traditional checked blue and burgundy shirt. It is really soft, versatile and is going to look great paired with his navy Zara cords and a chunky knit. Pepa & Co do a lovely thick burgundy sweater that would also work well for the Big Day and beyond.
Now I just have to find a frock appropriate enough for Church, Lego building and champagne sipping.
All in the detail:
1. Berry Print Smock Dress, by John Lewis, £30
They also do a sweet red cardigan to complete look
2. Baby Arabella Dress, by Trotters, £39.99
I would team this with the Milo long-sleeved Body and their navy cardigan
3. Traditional check shirt, by Pepa & Co, £35
4. Boy’s knitted sweater, by Pepa & Co £48.00
For Pepa & Co it is worth giving them a call as they are super helpful on sizing advice/stock availability.
