Weekend Baby Style | Week 11

Welcome to Weekend Baby Style! This linky is very simple and is basically just an #OOTD. Click here for full linky explanation. My co-host is Sarah from Knott bump & Us so make sure you pop by her post and say hello! 

First thing’s first – let me say a HUGE thank you to Sarah for flying solo over the last two weeks! I’ve been on my holidays and had terrible wifi so couldn’t host. I got back last weekend so have missed 2 WBS posts in total. Boo! To save confusion I’ve kept this week as Week 11 on my blog, just so that I’m always running the same week as Sarah. I’ve really missed taking part and hosting so I’m very excited to be back this week! Secondly, let me thank everyone that came back to link up while Sarah was hosting alone. We have such loyal linkers, it is so lovely to see everyone returning each week – and very exciting to keep seeing new people too! Welcome! We’re also going to keep the style of the temporary gold spotty badge Sarah used – I came back from holiday and loved it! So even though we may tweak it over the next few weeks the style will stay the same. We hope you love it too!

We’d love you to share your little one’s outfits. It’s so simple! Join in below…

 Austin’s WBS:

I chose to choose one of Austin’s midweek outfits this week as it was simply too cute not to! It was also the day that he was celebrating turning 8 months old. Where is the time going?!

White long sleeved vestM & S

White #OOTD t-shirt – Rocket and Rose

Leopard print leggings – Zara (girl section!)

White socks – Baby GAP

Slouch beanie and scarf – Posh Kiddos (don’t forget to use code AUSTIN15 for discount if you visit their site!)

Could this t-shirt BE more appropriate for the linky?! I love it! We ordered a couple from this brand so look out for Austin wearing those soon. We didn’t do much that day – popped to my sister’s house for a play, then back home for a bath and early bedtime. This boy really loves his sleep!

Today (Friday) Austin will be wearing:

Grey slouch beanie – Posh Kiddos

Black and white scarf – Enjoy Essential

Black and white stripey top – H & M

Jeggings –  Zara (girl’s section)

Leopard Print Converse – Available from Office

This is one of my favourite outfits – I love black and white, plus the Converse are just amazing! Although this morning I’ve had to make the devastating decision to sell them 😦 They’re a little too small for Austin even though he’s only worn them twice – indoors for about an hour each time so they’re like new! Keep an eye out on my Instagram page soon if you’d like a chance to nab them at less than retail cost.

I love Austin in beanies and scarves lately too and as some of you may know, we’ve teamed up with Posh Kiddos as their rep! We’re really enjoying it and their site is absolutely amazing for leggings, tops and beanies/scarves! Well worth a look – don’t forget to use our discount code!

Special mentions this week goes to:

This fab ladybird outfit from Baby Sausages – such a gorgeous little girly outfit!

Weekend Baby Style | Week 4

Welcome back to the Weekend Baby Style Linky! A few days ago you’ll remember that I announced a new co-host who will be joining this week, so please welcome Sarah from Knott Bump & Us !! If you missed the announcement, see here.

This linky is very simple and is basically just a #BOOTD. Click here for full linky explanation and rules. The long and short of it is that I’d love you all to share your favourite baby/child outfit from this weekend.

So simple! Join in below…

Austin’s Weekend Baby Style

So, this week we’ve been in Center Parcs at the Elveden Forest village and we’ve been having a lovely time. Sadly though, today is the day we travel home for the weekend so we’ve chosen comfort over style I’m afraid! The worst part is that as it’s the last day of the holiday, the clothes we have left don’t even match! Apologies everyone….

My Autumn #OOTD

It’s officially Autumn! It’s definitely the best season for clothes and this week I have been up in the loft packing away the summer wardrobe and bringing down the mustards, chunky knit scarves, leopard print and winter Mulberrys.

Here is my outfit of the day – a mustard 3/4 length sleeve cardigan from H&M, a black vest from Whistles, a leopard print infinity scarf from Warehouse and a Mulberry Bayswater. All combined with simple black leggings from Sainsbury’s.

I really miss mustard! I don’t think it works well in Spring or Summer so I’m always excited to have it back and it signals the countdown to Christmas. Time to get the mince pie scented candles out, wouldn’t you say?

Do you alternate your wardrobe for the seasons? If so, have you made the change yet or stil hoping Summer will return?

Thanks for reading!

Austin’s #BOOTD

Austin is finally big enough to be in more than just babygrows and sleepsuits – hurrah! I have an amazing wardrobe for him and I love being able to get them on him now he’s putting on weight. It was sad to put away his premature clothes but lovely to see him in some real boy’s clothes too.

Today Austin is in black and skinny jeans

He is wearing a t-shirt that is actually labelled as a girl’s t shirt, from Bella+Canvas in LA (I know, right?!)

His ‘skinny jeans’ are actually jeggings, also from the girls section but in Next.

His dribble bib is from my favourite bib company Funky Giraffe. They have such a brilliant range of fashionable and alternative bibs and at great prices too. Austin has a collection of maybe 30 bibs from there, but as a collicy/reflux baby we get our monies worth as he goes through about 10 a day!

The thing I have found most frustrating about dressing a boy is not being able to find all of the pieces of clothing I’d like to be able to on the high street or in supermarkets. There are some fab places like GAP, Zara etc but there just aren’t enough ‘cool’ clothes for boys about. If you really search online for independent stores (usually in America, hence his t-shirt being from LA) you will find some, but they are expensive and then you have the shipping and customs costs. I can’t tell you how long it took me to find a plain black t-shirt or vest for a baby. I know black is hardly traditional but I was very surprised there were next to none. There was plenty from 6 months up, but nothing for a little baby.

Nevertheless I always manage to find what I want for him and these days I put more effort into putting together his outfit each day than I do for myself! After all, a baby has to match!

Have you found any places to buy boys clothes that aren’t covered in the usual trains, planes or cars?! If so I’d love to hear where!
