Now when it comes to dressing Wren I’ll hold my hands up and admit I’m fussy…very fussy with what I’ll put him in. I have a very firm idea of what I like and what I don’t like.
Although he’s a baby I like his outfits to look classic, I don’t like anything too fussy or too gender specific. Nor do I like twee slogans such as ‘mummy’s little prince’. There’s nothing wrong with that of course, it’s just not for me.
I’m not here to tell you how to dress your baby, that is of course down to you….well before they’re old enough to make their own decisions that is! However if you have a similar style to me then I thought I’d share with you my three favourite high street stores.
Marks & Spencers
For: Gorgeous seasonal pieces
Marks and Spencers are fantastic when it comes to the changing seasons. Over the summer I saw so many gorgeous things I wanted to get Wren, however, like most newborns he mainly wore all in ones for the first few weeks. Now he’s a little bit older (8 weeks today!) I’m able to indulge a little bit more.
I had a walk through my local M&S store last weekend and I was so so impressed with the gorgeous autumnal pieces they had on display, needless to say I couldn’t resist one or two things for Wrens wardrobe, including the sweet little dungaree set below.
For: Simple unisex basics
I absolutely adore H&M for babies clothing. For the likes of vests, little trousers and rompers you really can’t go wrong. The quality of the fabric is super soft and the prices are extremely reasonable.
Whilst I do like to invest in some seasonable pieces for Wren, 90% of his wardrobe is quite minimalist which H&M do SO well! I’m forever browsing their website and honestly have to stop myself buying everything they have on offer.
For: Sweet animal prints
As I mentioned above I don’t really like anything too fussy however John Lewis always find the right balance between cute & classic!
They always have a wonderful selection of animal prints (without a disney print in sight….ahem).
My current favourite is the super sweet panda all in one suit. It’s yellow, knitted AND has the most gorgeous little wooden buttons, it ticks all the boxes for me.
Plus John Lewis have recently made the decision to no longer divide it’s children’s clothes by gender which I am loving!
