Gorgeous Occasionwear from Melijoe

Advertorial/ sponsored/ Trendy Kids

Who doesn’t love a good wedding? We have been invited to a wedding this summer and I have been looking all over for gorgeous outfits for Boo. If there is one thing I love it is shopping for pretty clothes for my little girl and Melijoe have the most beautiful selection. Here you will find our favourite dresses for a very special occasion.

This dotted tulle dress from Richmond Jr is Boo’s first choice and I have to agree with her that it is absolutely beautiful, I know she would look just stunning in it. It’s currently reduced from £368 to £221 – unfortunately that’s a little above what I would want to pay for a dress, if it was my own wedding or a special family member then maybe I would stretch to that but there is no denying that it is a very pretty dress.

This Roberto Cavalli Kids printed silk dress is more in my price range at £96. I love the print and think it would be perfect for a summer wedding, in fact I’d really like to wear this one myself.

This Milano jersey and flower-printed cotton dress by Monnalisa is so pretty, I love the flower detail round the neckline and how it flares out at the bottom. It is currently reduced to £150 from £213 too!

I just love the colour of this LESY Crepe and embroidery dress, Boo would always choose a pink dress but I would love to see her in this 🙂

The pleats on this SUZANNE ERMANN Flared pleated muslin dress are lovely, this is another one that wouldn’t be Boo’s first choice but I think it would love gorgeous on her 🙂

If you are looking for a special dress for your little girl this summer then head over to Melijoe, they have an amazing selection of dresses, bags, shoes, hair accessories and much much more.

Hitting the Beach with Melijoe

Advertorial/ Trendy Kids

Last month I showcased some gorgeous clothes for Spring from Melijoe, this month we are thinking about getting beach ready so we will be showing you some fabulous picks from their website that are perfect for hitting the beach.

As always I handed the Melijoe website over to the kids so they could choose their favourite things. First up is 8 year old Boo. She loves nothing more than being on the beach and loves to have lots of fab accessories, seriously she could have spent all day and every single penny I own on the Melijoe website!  She finally settled on just five items… a swimsuit, sunhat, flip flops, beach bag and some sunnies 🙂

What do you think of her picks, I think she has just about everything she would need for a perfect day at the beach don’t you? I would absolutely love that swimsuit and those flip flops for myself never mind Boo 😉

Next up is 4 year old Bugs, he LOVES to choose new clothes and always likes to choose what he wears every day and if I have happened to choose and it’s not right then he storms off upstairs to find something that he does want to wear. I love that strong mindedness 😉

You’ll be very pleased that the choice for boys at Melijoe is just as extensive as it is for girls, I really hate that boys don’t get as many options especially on the high street so it is really wonderful to go to a website and discover hundreds of pages of gorgeous boys clothes.

I adore Bugs’ choices especially those turtle shorts, they are so bright and funky… I wouldn’t have any problems picking him out of the crowds in those 😉

I really love the choice at Melijoe, you simply cannot visit without falling in love with something or if you are like us many many things! Head over at check it out for yourself and make sure you are beach ready 🙂

Our Top Picks for Spring from Melijoe

Advertorial/ Trendy Kids

Last month we discovered Melijoe and Bugs reviewed some of their clothes, he is still loving the items that he picked, they are fabulous quality and actually still look like new so we are very very impressed!

This month the kids have picked three of their favourite items for Spring from the Melijoe website to show you all. They would spend hours looking and have a very full shopping cart if I let them 😉

Boo is really into wearing dresses at the moment, nothing too fancy just casual for everyday play and these are perfect for that… they are so easy to wash and wear, can be worn over tights, leggings, jeans or just bare legs with sandals, trainers etc so they are so versatile! Every girl needs these dresses in their wardrobe… I wish they did them in my size! 😉

Bugs loves wearing polo shirts at the moment, I’ve no idea why he suddenly started but I have to say I’m pleased as he looks so smart in them 🙂 Here are the three that he really would like…

I have to say I’m pretty impressed with all of their picks, I love giving them choice in their clothes and letting them find their own style. I wish I had been given the chance to explore fashion as a child, maybe I wouldn’t be so terrible at dressing myself like I am now 😉

Do pop over to Melijoe if you like what you see here, they have some amazing clothes from many many brilliant brands.

Bugs Top Picks from Melijoe

Review/ Trendy Kids

A few weeks ago Bugs chose some of his favourite items from Melijoe to review and has been giving them a good old testing recently. Melijoe is an amazing kid’s fashion website which sells over 120 fantastic brands!

Melijoe.com offers the best in children’s style. Browse the fashion industry’s top kid’s fashion collections from brands like  Scotch and SodaStella McCartney KidsLittle Marc JacobsBurberry

Bugs was really spoilt for choice when he was trying to decide so I helped him choose some pieces that I knew he would get lots of wear out of over the next few months. We finally decided on this gorgeous green Petrol hoodie, a Pepe Jeans T-shirt and a lovely Timberland hoodie which isn’t available anymore unfortunately.

We are really impressed with the service we received from Melijoe, our order arrived very quickly and in perfect condition. The quality of the clothes gets top marks and Bugs LOVES his new clothes!

I was really pleased with the fit of all three items and so far they are all washing really well, I put them on the hand wash programme in the washing machine and then hang them on the line to dry. They remain so lovely and soft, especially the hoodies! they are just wonderful!

We will most definitely be shopping at Melijoe in the future, Boo is already planning what she wants! The selection is just fantastic, she has her eye on some gorgeous party dresses for all the summer parties she will be going to this year, I really cannot deny my girlie sequins and tulle! 😉

Clarks Boots from Charles Clinkard

Review/ Trendy Kids

Boo has been ready for a new pair of boots for a while now so when we were asked by the lovely people at Charles Clinkard to review for them that is what we chose. I’d had her feet measured not so long ago so knew what size she was, we always buy Clarks boots as they fit her really well and always last so we were really pleased to see they had a range of Clarks on the website.

Boo chose the Clarks Kelpie Heidi boots in black costing £52.00, They do start at £48.00 but they get more expensive the bigger they get. I think these boots are really good value, as I have said we always buy Clarks boots and they are always very good quality.

The Clarks Kelpie Heidi girls boots are a long leather pair to keep toes warm in winter. 

With quilting to the leg and open zip detailing, these girls leather biker boots come in a choice of black or brown, a lighter contrasting sole keeping the look casual. An inside zip allows them to be pulled on and off with ease. 

With a grippy rubber sole underfoot, the Clarks Kelpie Heidi girls long boots add edge to her look – whether it’s casual or for school!

Boo wears these for school everyday with a pair of tights and a skirt, but she will also wear them at weekends and in holidays too with either her skinny jeans, leggings or a dress and tights. She loves them and couldn’t wait to show them off to all of her friends last week.

Charles Clinkard has a huge range of footwear for men, women and children from brands such as Clarks, Dr Martens, Fly London, Crocs, Barbour, Converse, Vans, Startrite and many more so there is a wide selection on offer.

I ordered these on Friday and they were sent out the same day, I was given an hour time slot for delivery the following Monday. Which was perfect, I could even follow the route of my delivery so I knew exactly when he would arrive!

I was also pleased to see that Charles Clinkard accept PayPal, I am all about paying by PayPal nowadays; it saves me getting up to find my credit card 😉

Charles Clinkard offers free standard UK delivery for all online orders. I was extremely happy with the service I received from Charles Clinkard and will definitely be shopping with them again… I have my eye on a pair of gorgeous ankle boots; I’m really hoping Father Christmas can squeeze them into my stocking 😉

They also have an amazing range of handbags too! Just saying 😉

Two Gorgeous Party Looks for Girls

Christmas/ Shopping/ Trendy Kids

It’s party season and Boo has been invited to many different Christmas parties; so to help us to decide what she could wear we have put together two different party looks for her and you if you like them 😉

She is 8 now and really growing up into a little lady! I don’t like anything that makes her look too grown up as she is a child still but every now and again it’s lovely to make her feel extra special .

Look one is our favourite it’s very girlie & romantic and will make all girls feel a million dollars this Christmas. The whole outfit can be bought at Monsoon.

Girl's Party Wear 1

 

Look Two is from a store that I only just discovered yesterday and I fell completely in love with the whole website and everything they sell. I Love Gorgeous has stunning girlswear, I’m quite sad that I only just discovered them! It is owned by two Mums so that’s another massive reason to love them!

Girl's Party Wear 2

We couldn’t just leave it there, there are so many gorgeous dresses out there so we have  put together some of our favourites!

Getting Outdoors this Autumn with House of Fraser

Review/ Trendy Kids

The weather certainly has turned this last week or so, there is definitely a chill in the air now! Although we don’t let that stop us getting outdoors! We love nothing more than to bundle up and go for a long walk or head to the park for a play. House of Fraser sent Boo this Yumi duffle coat to keep her warm this Autumn. It’s now only £38.00 on their website and I think it’s a bargain at that! House of fraser Yumi Duffle Coat

This Yumi duffle coat is decorated with gold-tone heart buttons, this streamlined coat is cut from mid-weight jersey. The saturated palette will add a pop of colour to her winter wardrobe, while the faux fur hood adds a hint of on-trend texture. It is Dry clean only and is made from 80% Polyester , 20% Viscose; Lining: 100% Polyester.

House of fraser Yumi Duffle Coat

Boo absolutely LOVES her new coat. I always like to ask her what she thinks as it is really important to get a child’s perspective on things; so when I asked her what she loves about it she said…

I love the gold heart buttons, they are really pretty and it is really really cosy!

The coat is so lovely and soft and really good quality, the only thing I don’t like about it is that it is dry clean only. Children’s coats really need to be machine washable as they get so mucky… but if you can get over that then this is the perfect girls coat for Autumn/Winter!

House of fraser Yumi Duffle Coat

I ordered a size 11/12 years for Boo (She is almost 8 but I usually buy 11 years) thinking it would be a bit big for her but in reality this is a really snug fit and she won’t be able to wear anything other than a t-shirt under it; so make sure you take that in to account if you are ordering one.

You can also buy this coat in grey or teal but it looks like they are all selling out fast so hurry 🙂

* We were sent this item free of charge for the purpose of this blog post.
