To finish off the blog posts about my niece in a round about way I thought i would give an insight into some of the outfits she has in her wardrobe (i say wardrobe to make it seem cool when in fact it’s under bed draws) and some of the outfits she wears. Now before i get into it i would like to say there’s not going to be any expensive or branded clothing here simply because she’s a toddler, she gets messy and she grows ALOT so I’m not about forking out money for clothes and then not allowing her to be a normal kid in them. This way i don’t have to worry about just how ruined they get and she can do whatever she likes (within reason) with them on. She also has a vast majority of clothing that she likes in her draws as if we’re shopping for clothes and she sees something that’s appropriate she’ll end up getting it simply because even if its ugly to my eye it’s not to hers and i want to allow her to express herself in a way she wants.
Olivia’s clothing pretty much come from the same place, I mean there are a few stragglers that i happen to see and pick up along the way, which ill be sure to mention the place of purchase if that does come up but where i live there isn’t really a decent clothes stores for toddlers so we end up usually shopping in the clothing part of Morrison, Nutmeg. I will try to add pricing and information on the clothing but like may clothing pricing does vary so even though my niece is 4 she is currently in 6-7 clothing meaning the prices i put will be for that age.
Pineapple dress chosen by Olivia herself, comes with a little pineapple bag. £9 Nutmeg. The back is pretty low but other than that the material is really good and not too much shrinkage when washed.
Sunglasses £3, Trousers £6, T-shirt £5. Nutmeg. The watermelon pants are my FAVOURITE thing and Olivia being Olivia loves the funky patterns, T-shirt is a weird material and discolors a little, Sunglasses Olivia picked herself because pink.
Onesie, if im being completely honest I can’t even remember. Nutmeg. Its hands down my favourite thing ever, its thick and SO soft. Was more than happy to allow her to even walk up the road to her nannas in it.
Trousers £7, Top £5, Jacket £6. Nutmeg.
Trousers are actually embroided at the pocket which you sadly can’t see in this picture and they are cuffed at the bottom. Jacket is a normal hoody sort of jacket, not very thick but those sorts of things never really are and the top is a flowly coral colour, the only issue I have is with the two layers of cloth it becomes difficult for them to put on themselves.
Dress £2.99, H&M. I LOVE the designs of their dresses so I picked up a couple when i went into a different town the other day. The sizing of it does confuse me a little but Olivia loves them and they’re cheap as chips (nearly)
T-shirt £1.75, Romper £4. Pep&Co. Also picked these up when I was in another town the other day. I do find the sizing to come off a little short and they do shrink quite a bit in the wash but if im honest with you i was expecting that.
Pyjamas, £6.99. TKMAX. They are official Disney pyjamas I just happened to spot them when we were at tkmax one day, im unsure if they’re still for sale at disney and if they are what price but they’re SO cute. A little thin but it’s always quite hot in our flat so that’s never an issue.
T-shirt, can’t remember the exact price but I think it was somewhere along £6. Nutmeg. You cant see the print properly in this picture but it is in fact a dinosaur print t-shirt with a little blue accessible pocket on the front. Olivia picked this one, its her favourite animal, or just thing in general, dinosaurs. I love it, it goes with anything.
T-shirt not sure on price, Trousers £7. Nutmeg. The t-shirt is in fact shirt material and does have darkish blue and white strips with an extra bit or trimmed fabric near the collar, it also has cuffed sleeves. The trousers are white high-waisted ‘skin tight’ jeans with accessible pockets. The tshirt sizing came up a little small and shrunk in the wash to an unwearable size but the jeans are still to this day wearable, just not as white.
This is a two piece outfit that is sold as one. Trousers and top £12. They’re only recent purchases so havent really had a good run of the life of a four-year old but I’ll be sure to let you all know how it goes. The top is has a knitted look about it and has little flowers embroided into the top. The waistband of the pants are also stretchy even though the bottoms are very flary.
That is 10 looks from Olivia’s wardrobe, as I said her clothes are SO affordable and as far as im concerned she makes them look as good as they can, granted all the clothes may not be in your taste nor to the design you’re looking for but there are other affordable clothes of a more normal style, Olivias just not a normal styled girl. I can honestly say though that majority of the clothing that has been brought have been able to be used more than once and clean off pretty good. It’s just a shame you can slow down the growing process of a child so it can be used a little longer.
Also before ending this blog post I would like to make it apparent that all these photos were not taken in one day. Olivia loves a good photo like any child, posing is her favourite thing to do, besides eating and being a drama queen of course. These photos were actually taken over the course of a month or two and quite happily.
Have a good day
