Trendy Tuesday - Polarn O Pyret

Welcome to Trendy Tuesday everyone!  Not heard of it before?  Well, this is a weekly linky which started life as Trendy Toddler Tuesday, thought up by the very lovely Maria of Very Busy Mama.  Last year Maria passed the torch to me and as my son is rapidly heading towards 4 (and other bloggers with older children had asked if they could join in) I decided to drop the toddler from the name and just have Trendy Tuesday.  If you'd like to join in, it'd be fantastic.  You don't have to join in every week, just when you feel like it.  All you need is a trendy child (or children), some photos of them sporting their outfit/s and a quick blog post.  Once you've done that you can link up over here!  Easy!!  TT has gone a bit quite over the last couple of months with the run up to Christmas and the New Year so I'd like to give it a little kick up the bum.  If you are a reader who doesn't want to join in but knows other bloggers who might like to, please let them know about it!! If you are regular, thank you so much!  Don't forget you can help by tweeting links and letting other bloggers know as well!

OK.. enough boring stuff.  On to the fashion.  This week I'm all about Polarn O. Pyret.  I've talked about PO.P a lot on my blog over the last few years but I can't help it, they continue to be one of my favourite children's brands.  I love that they cater for children up to 12 years old.  So many of my favourite brands from Ethan's babyhood have stopped catering for him.  The other fantastic aspect of PO.P are the patterns - you can always guarantee a good selection of patterns from them and they are so different to what you'd find on the High Street.  Thirdly, the quality is outstanding with PO.P clothing.  I have a lot of 2nd and 3rd hand PO.P clothing for Ethan and it always washes well and keeps it's charm.

We were very lucky to be sent a top and leggings from PO.P just before Christmas in one of their new Spring prints.  We were sent "Olympic Village" in blues.  This print is amazing, so much going on!  My hubby is very jealous of Ethan's new threads, he commented on how cool they look!

We are using these as PJs.  That's the fantastic thing about these "basic" style items that PO.P does so well.  They can be worn separately as a top and leggings, or together, or as we are, as PJs.  They have been soft and comfy for Ethan from the get-go and I have washed them MANY times now and they are still looking great.

Top - £18.50
Leggings - £18.50

Have you got any PO.P clothing?  You should check them out.  They still have some gorgeous bargains to be had in their winter sale and the new Spring prints have just been released.  I know that any PO.P clothing we have will be worn by at least two children, and as I plan to save them, hopefully by grandchildren as well.  The pattern and quality of the material will stand the tests of time, I know!

Now it's over to you - what have your children been sporting lately?  Link up below and don't forget to pop back to see who else has linked up and visit them!
