Trendy Tuesday - Clifton Style

Badge for TTT, Badge

Ugh.  Anyone else in the UK totally fed up with this freezing cold weather?  The sun has actually popped out as I type this but it's barely above freezing and the wind is evil.  I have bought a few things for Ethan's summer wardrobe lately but at this rate, he's not going to need them for an age!

I love H & M for babies and children's clothing.  I honestly find that for what you pay, the quality is excellent.  They always wash well as well.  If ever I want to update Ethan's wardrobe with just a few key pieces for the season, I always check out H & M first.  Recently I've bought him a pair of shorts and some sunglasses.  He's already worn the sunglasses because he's really sensitive to the sun and wants sunglasses on as soon as there's the tiniest hint of sun.  I doubt he'll be wearing the shorts for a while.  Here are a couple of stock pics:

I love the shorts - they are quite smart and understated but THEY HAVE STARS ON THEM!!

So... what's Ethan wearing at the moment?  Well, as I was saying, it's cold, so our dear friends the BabyLegs leg warmers are out (or rather under - under trousers!) as are the Slugs & Snails tights, again, under trousers.  Other than that, it's lots of layers - but we're still trying to stay trendy!

This is Ethan at the weekend when we were pottering about Clifton:

If you are ever in the Bristol area, Clifton is a lovely place to walk around and visit, I recommend it!  We go quite a bit, Ethan likes to walk across the Suspension Bridge and we can always find a nice cafe to eat in.

  1. I am so sick of the weather, in 2009 I had my little boy in shorts in March, go figure. I too love H & M most of the kids clothes come from there. Love his outfit very trendy indeed xx

    1. I know!! In fact, this time last year (give or take a week or two) we had a crazy heatwave.. I remember breaking out the suncream! Mind you, it was a pretty rubbish summer after that so I'm telling myself the colder and longer this winter is, surly the better our summer will be?! xx

  2. I cannot wait for it to get warm, especially as we moved in Jan and now have a garden to play in!!
    I keep eyeing up those H&M shoes but they start at a 7 and Seb has tiny feet, i keep willing them to grow!

    1. Oh that's annoying about the shoes - Ethan's feet have been tiny for ages, he's only just reached 8 and he's 4 in July. One of his little "girlfriends" has size 10 feet and she's 2 days younger than him.... x

  3. Totally agree about H&M. We loveeee H&M!The tractor coat is so cute!

    1. It's a fab coat, I agree, we always get compliments on it! x


Thank you for leaving me a comment! I appreciate every one!
