I was always worried that should I give birth to a little girl, I would be constantly broke after spending all my money buying her pretty dresses and sparkly things. As it happens, there are so many wonderful boys clothes out there that it was inevitable my wardrobe would look bare whilst my children have clothes bursting from theirs.
Dungarees, little shirts and tiny little sneakers, as it turns out, are pretty irresistible and we are loving the offerings from Nutmeg at Kiddicare. The clothes are great quality and beautifully designed, yet are so competitively priced that you can’t help but pop a few bits in your basket every time you go out.
Archie has been trying a selection of their winter clothes in size 9-12 and we have found it pretty average sized compared to other stores. At 7 months he is around 19lb and 75cm and fits it well. We did have one pair of dungarees that seemed a rather awkward shape as they had a super long body and really short legs, but the rest of the outfits were well proportioned and easy to wear.
I loved this 3 piece oufit (£15), and the yellow bodywarmer has been worn with so many things. The grey trousers are fully lined with an elasticated waist and the body warmer is also lined and soft on the inside. The outfit is perfect as it is, but the three parts work really well as seperates too.
These green jeans and checked shirt (£12) are exactly the kind of thing I would choose for my littlest man as I love him in bright colours. The outfit is smart and clearly comfortable enough to sleep in!
We tried a 2 pack of pajamas and although I usually stick to sleepsuits for Archie, these are soft and gorgeous and he looks so sweet in them! Dylan is also wearing some funky star print jammies (£3.50) which were bright and cosy.
Dylan was sent some lovely bits too and our absolute favourite is the hat, scarf and gloves set (£10). Although it hasn’t quite gotten cold enough for the full she-bang, he has been looking quite the trendy toddler in his new hat, and is reluctant to take it off. The woolly exterior is lined with fleece so it is rather cosy and perfect as the weather cools.
Nutmeg jeans (£5) look so much better on than off, and go with everything. We love this blue sweater which is lovely and warm for winter, and I know Dylan will look awesome scooting away wearing it if Father Christmas brings the scooter he has been thinking about!
We are also getting a lot of wear from the gorgeous shoes, which despite his rather wide feet are a perfect fit. At only £6 I will absolutely be buying more. After a couple of weeks of wear they still look pristine and they are coping well with the active lifestyle of a two year old.
Nutmeg do lovely simple long sleeved tops which my little dude has been wearing on their own or layering with T-shirts and they are a great quality wardrobe staple. Their jumpers are also great and this red one comes in at only £6! It is nice and long so no midriff baring on the monkey bars, but also thick enough to keep the chill out.
We are really impressed with the Nutmeg clothing for babies and toddlers. It is stylish and practical, well made and at bargain prices too. I have had nothing but compliments (every single time I take the boys out in their new togs), and the clothes are unique and memorable.
