My children’s wardrobe has started to reflect my own. Lots of t-shirts, a couple of pairs of trousers, dresses and then some key knits. One item sitting firmly at the forefront of Little B’s drawers is her beloved cashmere Peacoat. Rather a ‘coatigan’ of sorts it is perfect to pop over a summer dress for blustery days or super cute with a pair of cords come winter. Cashmere for children is understandably a bit of an investment but I once bought Little A a cream cashmere jumper when he was a year old, much to the derision of my friends, but guess what Little B wears it now and it has lasted unbelievably well. That said I should also put my hands up and admit I am that mother who removes the knitwear before tea-time mayhem unleashes!
This cashmere Peacoat in Biscuit, by Olivier Baby and Kids, suits both the girls and the boys and I just love the double breasted front and of course the collar. Little B has been rocking this over the sweetest new dress – see below – and I just know that with a bit of care it will be worn all year long.
