The funny thing about parenting is….
No-one tells you that you’ll no longer care what you’re wearing.
All that matters is that your little person is dressed in something clean and that suits their personality.
I may be wrong to allow a 20 month old to dictate what she wears at times, but I figure, she has all week to wear her comfy stuff to nursery so if she wants to wear her big tutu, so be it (even if it’s really heavy and quite wide!).
I want her to express herself in every way she can. I don’t want to force the colour pink on her. I want her to wear every colour that she can, although not all at once.
#ToddlerPaige can pull off black – she rocks a black polo neck.
#ToddlerPaige can pull off blue – she’s blond and blue-eyed.
#ToddlerPaige can pull off pink – but not the hot-pink!
#toddlerPaige rocks leopard print!
We shop in the boys and girls section. I don’t mind if she wears something that is technically classed as a ‘boys!’ Just the other day I picked up a batman t-shirt from H&M that was only £3 and in the boys section. She’s also got a superman hat and loads of leggings that are technically from the boys section of Zara.
Her wardrobe is pretty endless and this year I did have to stop myself purchasing the boys santa outfit from Penney’s/Primark. She had it last year alright, but as she’s getting a little older she needs outfits that do t have feet on them. But there is so much choice out there for children of all ages.
we love to check out mutinykids.com to keep up to date with all things fashion and to help bankrupt us.😂 Oh Baby London also manages to take a chunk of my dosh with all their amazing leopard prints dresses, all in ones and cardis! As well as their signature ‘9 months’ outfits. We’ve also just purchased a crown from Fable Heart which will look amazing at Christmas and my little angel/fairy can dance around the trees! The list is endless…..we can’t forget about PopUpShop though as their swimsuits and onesies are AMAZING!
We love to mix it up everyday! We do fake fur, we do fluff, we do sparkles and we do jumpsuits!
I really enjoy seeing Paige twirling in a new skirt or saying ‘oooh’ to a new pair of jeans….I love how it expresses her personality.
For the month of December we are going to be trying out an outfit-a-day for the advent period as well as a few other things!
If you fancy keeping up to date with us, go over to instagram and check out: @toddling_along – we will be trying to update the blog as much as possible as well!
Meanwhile, mummy and daddy are walking around in absolute tatters-but we don’t care!
Byebye for now!
