Squidge has recently started to go up into the next size clothes. This means I get to shop for him which I absolutely love. I buy most of his clothes from a combination of John Lewis, Jojo Maman Bébé, Zara, Mothercare and Asda, and in my search for his sized 2-3 A/W16 wardrobe, I’ve managed to pull together some really cute outfits, which over time I’ll be featuring on here.
This time he’s in full Jojo Maman Bébé and I couldn’t love the outfit more! Just as a caveat I will say that yes, Jojo clothes aren’t cheap (just as John Lewis and Mothercare aren’t), however they are fantastic quality and do last really well.
The only clothes we’ve had any issues with have been the head hole size of the little bird collection in Mothercare - Squidge has a big head and most of the right sized clothes for him in that collection struggle to go over his head and some of the quality of the Zara baby clothes haven’t been great (prints wearing away, thin quality t-shirts and sharp bits poking out of snap fasteners (yeah… might have to stop shopping there after reading that).
For his outfit I picked the gorgeous fox leggings (£10) (I’ve bought him loads of leggings in the past from places like Zara but they’ve also been baggy on him as he’s very slight). I love the quality of these, they’re really thick and warm, and also really stretchy, they fit around his nappy perfectly too.
His top is also from their A/W16 collection and features a London bus (£15*) (he LOVES busses!) – again it’s lovely quality, warm, quite thick but not too thick. In the current Autumn weather I’d have him in a short-sleeved vest underneath (he’s still in vests, not giving up that for a while).
I paired up the outfit with his Jojo Maman Bébé wellies – I’ve been buying him these since he could walk, this is his third pair – I absolutely love them! They’re great quality and IMO, not crazy expensive (£16).
Isn't this just the perfect little outfit for Autumn? <3
