As the sun hasn't been around in quite a while we decided to make the most of the heat yesterday by spending the day in the garden. I inflated the pool, the kids popped on sun hats and cream and we headed outside with various toys and of course the poochie in tow too.
We were allowed to select some items from the lovely Vertbaudet summer range a few weeks ago and this was the best opportunity we have had as yet to put their clothing to the test.
The swimsuit was a lovely fit and the cross back meant there were no issues with straps falling down. It also came in a little bag which is ideal for storing the costume and the frilled waist was a nice little extra.
The T-shirt, hard-wearing shorts and GEOX trainers were loved by Jamster. The cotton was really soft yet strong which provided a comfortable fit, and they were the perfect sizes for him. There are buttons to the sleeves too again providing nice added detail.
The Geox trainers have a special perforated rubber sole which helps to keep feet cool - great for the summer and stylish too. The velcro fastening was secure yet simple to use for smaller hands.
After some time in the pool Minxy slipped into a bright pink backless dress and sat in the shade. The colour and fit were lovely and the elasticated neck band removed the hassle of tying bows to keep the dress up. It is lined which adds to the quality of the dress and had some lovely stitching to the top. This goes nicely with flip flops for a beach look or with sandles for an evening event.
Minxy next popped on a lovely vertically stripped sailor t-shirt with love heart detailing. I really like this top as the neck line is different to the majority of childrens tops and the buttons were a nice added touch. It's pretty and feminine and Minxy commented on how much she liked it. It's a top that could be worn either casually or dressed up.
We had a lovely time in the garden followed by an evening at the park and ice cream.
How have you been enjoying the sun?
