Whilst I was pregnant with Little B, I was convinced that she was going to be a he. Although I wanted it to be a surprise, my sneaky glances at the sonograph machine meant I washed and ironed Little A’s old wardrobe of blue breton stripes and boyish dungarees. Instead, to our amazement Little B arrived into our lives in a flurry of pink and I began to discover how much fun it is clothes shopping for girls. One look I really wanted to perfect was the bloomers over tights combo. Having looked high and low I think I have found the perfect pair. Made by Pipkin Clothing, they are 100% cotton, soft and lightweight and look fab when teamed with cream tights and a chunky cardi. Reasonably priced at £18 and available in lots of colours, check out the sweet turquoise pair for boys. You can tell that the designer behind Pipkin Clothing is a mother by the classic design feature of an elasticated waist which is included throughout the collection, making the clothes perfect whether you are changing nappies or potty training. Little A is now wanting to surprise me every morning by getting dressed himself and Pipkin’s trousers certain make it easier for him.
