Trendy Thursday - Baptism Outfits

This Sunday just gone was Felix's baptism.   Ethan was baptised when he was 7 months old and Felix was 14 months old so twice the age - it took us longer to get things organised - life is busier with two children, one of whom is at school!  Anyway, due to the age difference, I knew Felix wasn't going to be able to wear what Ethan wore.. well, apart from the waistcoat.  Luckily I knew that would fit!

For ages I wasn't sure what I'd put Felix in.  I knew there was a good chance it'd be hot so I didn't want heavy trousers or a shirt.  I wanted something he could be comfy in but I also wanted him to look cute, funky and smart - ish!  He does have wild hair, don't forget!

In the end, I just knew that the shorts I had made by Sarah from Marmalade Sky Baby would look awesome.  They are different enough to really stand out.  Cut well enough to look smart.  Soft enough to be comfy for a whole days wear.  I teamed them up with our absolute hands down favorite vest from Whistle and Flute, popped Ethan's old waistcoat over and completed the look with some grey converse.   We think he was rocking!

Ethan  wore his Little MooShoo retro shirt with a waistcoat over the top and some shorts.  It was too warm for trousers.  Unfortunately the cheeky monkey avoided all cameras it seems (well, until he was naked in the garden later that is!) so I don't seem to have any evidence of his outfit!

Both my boys looked fantastic.  They were smart but not over the top.  If you want to know what I wore, check out my previous post on designer dress hire!
