Kids Style : Navy Duffle Coat And High Top Trainers

It all started when we were running behind schedule. We were to drive down to Edinburgh for one of our friends daughters birthday party and as usual we were running late. As I scampered around the house trying to get everything together, I felt the stress rising. I needed to get Gabriel dressed and fed, pack his and my own bag, get my self ready, wash my hair and do my make up. SIGH!

The thing is when you have a young child you cannot just pack a few outfits and thats it. You need to bring the whole house! In addition to outfits and spare outfits in cases of leaking nappies or food spills. Its bottles, bibs, snacks, milk, nappies and toiletries. I was cursing myself for not preparing everything the night before. After a few mad dashes, I finally got the last things together while my husband strapped Gabriel in the car. Are we ready? He asked. Yes I replied and off we went to spend the weekend in Edinburgh.

We would usually do the whole 2 and a half hour journey in a oner, but that was no longer an option now with Gabriel who needs to kick his legs and have some food. We stop off and go to unstrap our baby out of the car. Where are his shoes? “I thought you packed them” I said to my husband. “I thought you did” he replied. FUUUUUUUUUCK!

We had forgotten Gabriel’s shoes! Luckily for us there was a Tesco nearby. What was a “quick buy any shoe” situation. Ended up being the day we found one of our favourite pairs. They have become his go to shoes along side his clarks, and he loves them.

With the weather getting colder, they go really well with this duffle coat from John Lewis. He has a few coats for different occasions but this one is by far our favourite. It is so stylish yet casual, and makes him look like a mini adult. Here is his outfit during one of our outings.

Toddler Style : Acid Wash Jeans And Baby Brogues

As difficult as Motherhood can be sometimes I do feel really blessed. My little boy is growing up to be  everything I have ever dreamed he would be. Plus I love creating his Toddler Style. Though he challenges us at times he is genuinely a kind hearted child who loves cuddles. He surprises me every single day with how quickly he seems to pick  up  on things and learn just by watching what you do.

Motherhood is something I would never trade however I sometimes do miss the freedom I had before children. Being an ex fashion buyer I miss the glitz and glam of my former life in Paris. The Fashion , the shops, the food, just the magic of Paris. So even though a lot of the time I don’t have time to shop for myself and be the fashionista I want to be. I now have my own little doll I can dress up!

 

Toddler Style

The Fashion choices now a days for children is amazing. I can go absolutely crazy when I am shopping and I always seem to end up buying more clothes for Gabriel than for myself.

This is one of the outfits he was rocking this week. For the last 4 months he has been wearing the same pair of sneaker shoes with every outfit. So I thought it was time to work on his shoe collection and that is when I got hold of these gorgeous little baby brogues! They are just the cutest and they smarten up any outfit. He was so chuffed with them he refused to take them off.

Toddler Style

He wore them with his skinny acid wash jeans from Marks and Spencers and one of his favourite navy blue woollen jumpers. Unfortunately he cannot seem to wear a decent jumper for more than 2 seconds without drooling or staining it with something as you can see in the photo. Oops! Get the links below
