Keep Kids Warm in Style

(ad gifted)

Although the sun is shinning, everyone knows that the spring and summer English weather is never blazing hot every day. There is often a cool breeze and the early mornings can often feel chilly. 

So you might be looking for that extra layer to go with your child's spring / summer outfits.

So I have 2 lovely choices of brands you may want to consider when thinking about staying warm. 

The first is from a clothing company from Spain called La Coqueta. They have a beautiful website full of delightful designer kids clothing and a boutique in London. All the designers of the clothing are from Spain and making the clothing in Spain. They make clothing from baby items up to the age of 10 years and for girls and boys. 

We was sent one of their lovely cardigans to review. 

Firstly the box it came in was beautiful itself. It would make a lovely gift if you was gifting some baby clothes to someone. After opening the layers of lovely paper it was wrapped in, the gorgeous cardigan was revealed, and gorgeous is exactly what it is. 

The cardigan I was sent was a very traditional cut, with 2 buttons at the top and the rest of the cardigan open. It would look beautiful over a party dress or summer dress. We was sent a pink cardigan but there are other colours available on the website. The pink colour is so pretty though and is a lovely shade. You can tell that the cardigan is made with such high quality materials and time and effort put into the making of it. The detail around the collar is so lovely and the use of shell buttons just gives it that extra Spanish feel to it. Also the detail around the cuffs of the arms is also so delicate looking and beautiful.

The materials of the cardigan are all organic and are made with the finest cotton and wool, making it super soft and also not irritable on children's skin. This was a big bonus for us as Lily has Eczema. Usually with such high quality clothing you end up having to hand wash them, but La Coqueta know how much this can be effort when you have children and so have made there clothing so it is machine washable. 

Lily looks so pretty in the cardigan and it will look so lovely with many of her items of clothing. It is perfect for an extra layer during the spring and summer months as it is not too thick and will just provide that extra bit of warmth. 

You can buy this cardigan for £46, plus browse many more beautiful items on the La Coqueta website

The next item of clothing has a different style completely but still is brilliant for that extra layer during the spring and summer months. 

It is a super cool sweatshirt from Bebe Hound. 

We was sent a sweatshirt of our choice and I chose this one that stales Little Photographer on it. I felt it was perfect for Lily as she is a mini me at times and always taking pictures.

Babe hound is based and hand printed in Yorkshire and make comfortable, unisex, cool looking clothing all made from 100% cotton. 

Their website has t-shirts, bags and sweatshirts all with cool slogans and pictures on that your children are sure to love. I browsed for a while and found lots that I felt would suit Lily's personality so I expect there will be a design perfect for every child on there. 

The jumper is really soft, especially on the inside, and is perfect for that extra layer in the spring and summer due to it being not too thick. It is also quite baggy which means it is nice and airy to wear. 

The camera on the front is soft and velvety and strokable and feels nice to touch. Although the jumper isn't very girly, the colours I find are perfect for a girl to wear with the camera being a light purple. 

Lily looked so cool in her new sweatshirt and has loved wearing it out while using her camera which looks very similar to the one on her jumper. 

Sweatshirts from Bebe Hound are £22 each and can be bought from their website
