WHAT PHINEY WORE: Bloomers c/o coco & wolf // Top zara // Waistcoat homemade // Moccasins c/o amy & ivor // tights zara
Bloomers are most definitely up there as being one of my most favourite pieces of baby and children's clothing. They are unisex, traditional and vintage-style, are comfortable and can be played in, crawled in and run in with no problems at all. Plus they're trans-seasonal; so sweet with tights and knits in winter and cool with t-shirts and sandals in the summer. Perfect, right?
These amazing Liberty print bloomers will be worn non-stop, I guarantee. The muted tones in the design are just the earthy shades I'm drawn to right now and the busy pattern ensures any spillages or muddy fingerprints go unnoticed (a must with such a fearless little tom-boy as Josephine!)
And don't they match her beautiful moccasins so well? These little shoes are only getting better and better; the leather is more deliciously creased and soft after every wear. And Josephine loves her "slippers" so much.
I've spoken often about how much I love to support small businesses and relish in good vintage and second-hand finds when it comes to dressing Josephine, and to be honest there are only two highstreet stores that you'll regularly see me in; H&M and Zara. As far as I'm concerned Zara Mini is the best place to shop for babies and kids on the high street right now (that is, a mainstream and international brand). The pieces are so French in style, come in lovely colours and with sweet details. I may have had a little Baby/Josephine shopping spree there a month or so ago - their website is dangerous!
Finally, the perfect piece for this spring-like weather is a nanny-made knitted waistcoat. That little extra cover-up if the sun goes in and the temperature plummets again.
