Trendy Tuesday - Moomns, Monochrome & Tie Dye

Two of my favourite styles at the moment are monochrome and tie dye.  I love tie dye because it's so easy to do yourself - you can funk up a boring item of clothing and feel crafty whilst doing it.  It's so nice when someone compliments you on an item of clothing and you can say "Oh, I did that!" as well.

Ethan loves tie dye.  He only has a few tops.  Felix on the other hand has had loads.  When I was pregnant I died all the neutral and white baby clothes we owned in a variety of tie dye colours.  The looked so cool.  He's grown out of those now, but there is one t shirt I dyed, age 3-6 months which fits him now.  When I made him that one, I made Ethan one to wear as well - I'd happened to find a white Next t shirt in a charity shop for 50p so I thought it was ripe for the dying!!

The results were pretty good and Ethan loves having a top that is a little different to his brothers but similar as well.  They look cute together when they are both wearing them.

I've got to mention this cute long sleeved Moomin vest the lovely Anna from Funky Little People sent us when Felix was born.  I loved Moomin stories as a child and the clothing line is so cute.  Apeals to little ones and adults alike!

We've been enjoying lots of Autumn walks lately, picking blackberries as we go.  I've got to say that I think the tie dye tops look a bit like they've been dyed by blackberries!! Not the case though.. I used them to make a crumble!!

Monochrome I love love LOVE at the moment. On me, on the boys and on our accessories.  I've just had amazing winter accessories made for our Xplory in monochrome chevron and I think they look AMAZING.
