I love clothes shopping whether it be for the boys or myself, there’s nothing quite like walking around a shop and purchasing a few items to perk up your mood.
Last week i ventured into Zara, not for myself mind, I was looking for a particular pair of leggins for my 2 year old. A couple of days before, I saw a picture pop up on my instagram timeline from a friend in the blogging circuit, she had bought some leggins and was sharing with everyone how cute they were, I instantly fell in love with them and knew i would have to go in search of them for Oliver.
I found the leggins that i was looking for quite quickly but I also found some more items of clothing to add to his wardrobe. Zara had a sale on, I didn’t go as mad as i thought i would as I knew I had to carry them home from London with me on the train, But I did buy him a lovely new outfit.
The above items were not in the sale, but I did buy Oliver’s shoes which cost me £7.99, the boots are sandy colour, fur lined and absolutely gorgeous.
Oliver’s outfit in total cost me £29.97.
The leggins are really soft and the print is of a cactus, I did have to buy him 18-24 months as they looked like they would be more his size than the 2-3 but I think I would have been better getting him the 12-18 months size as they are still too big for him. Zara have more boys leggins in store with different patterns and colours, like the ones below which are next on my shopping list
We also bought a Rock and Roll t-shirt in the sale for £2.99 and a pair of really adorable tweed checked shorts that come with braces for £5.99. I will share these with you on another post.
The clothes from Zara are really cute and quite different from the other high street stores, they just have that little edge to them.
This is not a sponsored post, I have simply shared the items of clothes as i really like them.
Whilst recently scrolling through my home page on Instagram I came across some pictures of gorgeous items of childrens clothing that Jenny from Kyna Boutique had uploaded. She was sharing with us some new stock from L’asticot and I knew the moment that I saw them I just had to have them for Oliver.
One of the items was a L’asticot bodysuit with a penny farthing print on it and a yellow trim on the neck and legs. With spring on its way, yellow is the ideal colour to be buying and after the dreary long winter we have had this bodysuit was certainly going to be brightening up my little Oliver’s day.
I ordered the items and within no time at all they had arrived, they was beautifully wrapped in cream paper and tied together with a black satin ribbon, I instantly knew that I would be happy with my purchase. As soon as I got my hands on the clothes I knew that I had bought some quality clothes, they felt soft like velvet. The material was thick and stretchy but not that stretchy that it would lose its shape.
I couldn’t wait to try it on him and was pleasantly surprised to see that the bodysuit had a double position poppers which is a fabulous idea as the item gets to grow with your child resulting in it lasting longer.
The body suit oozes excellence and is made from a superior quality of material with a stunning print of bikes on it.
As daddy is a keen cyclist and spends a majority of his time out on his racer I thought this would be lovely to show daddy how much Oliver supports daddy when he is competing in races.
I can’t wait until the weather warms up a bit and I get to show Oliver off wearing it, What do you think of it?
The body suit cost me £20 but worth every penny as it will double up as a t-shirt in the summer and with the extra poppers it will last longer too. If you like the look of this bodysuit, pop on over to Kyna Boutique and check out the rest of L’asticot new seasons stock.
It’s been a while since i published a trendy toddler post, I love sharing with you all what my little ones have been wearing. I have fallen behind in these post simply because of starting work and being given extra hours at work and running the family home that i just do not find the time to share with you all the pictures of what the little ones have been rocking. Today i received an email from Alex who blogs at Medicatedfollower, who hosts the trendy toddler link up every Tuesday reminding me of linking up a post today and as we are on the school holidays I have managed to find some time to post something out.
Just before christmas I bought some clothes from the Heritage Range as presents for the boys, I love this range with its tweed checks and chunky knit cardigans in mustard and brown colours they give the look of country style living.
The trousers are soft tweed with elasticated knitted ankle cuffs and adjustable elasticated waistline with little pleats at the front waist near the belt hoops. The tweed colour is country green, blue, mustard and red. They are really comfortable and gorgeous looking and i believe make my handsome little chap a little trend setter.
Along with the trousers i bought a knitted chunky cardigan in mustard colour with brown chunky buttons, the neckline is a cowl collar and he looks all snug and warm in it.
Both items were bought from Next and i am quite upset to find when i returned after christmas to buy some more items in the range that are no longer stocking it and have changed their stock to spring clothes so I am hoping come autumn this year they will be bringing out the same again.

Please support Medicated follower in her Trendy Tuseday linky as she hasn’t been receiving many link ups and I for one do not want this link to end, If you have a trend setting little one whatever the age please share with us what they have been wearing wether it be a short little post with a few pictures or a more detailed one.
Oliver has a gorgeous little all in one that i recently bought from EBay for him after reading Medicated Followers blog post about her purchases for her little boy.
The playsuit is from the designer Hatley and it cost me a remarkable 0.99p. It is in perfect condition and I am sure Oliver will get a lot of wear from it. It is bright red with blue cuffs and on the neck and with the logo of a cow on the front which says ‘Udderly Adorable’ underneath it.
The all in one has press studs on the inside of the leg which is ideal for easy access to his nappy.
It fits him perfectly and he is all cuddly in it. The material is nice and soft which is perfect for my little boy who is always on the go, he has lots of movement in it an dits isn’t restrictable at all.
What has your little one been rocking this week? (literally in Oliver’s case)
Today Oliver is wearing his check shirt with his brown trousers. I absolutely adore him in this outfit, the colour of the shirt bring out his gorgeous blue eyes
Both items are from my favourite high street store H&M, not only do they have a fabulous selction of clothes for my boys but they are affordable aswell. I find there clothes to be made to a high standard and fit really well. Oliver fits into their 6-9 month clothing range as he is only 74cm but i think it won’t be long until he will be able to fit into the next size up.
The shirt is blue, red and white check with a grandad collar, it has a denim blue choke on it and is slim fitting. The trousers have braces which i adore all of my boys in, not only do they look trendy and stylish but they keep their trousers up as they have such tiny waists lol. They are two tones brown and are like a soft denim.
I think the oufit has quite a country look to it, what do you think? Especially with Oliver sitting on his rocking horse 🙂
