I love an excuse to get my children beautiful clothes.
With Christmas around the corner
I have plenty of excuses for some lovely coordinated party outfits
so that my twosome look gorgeous for the festive season.
that you see in shops a lot at this time of year
and instead prefer to buy the children clothes which are smart and special
but slightly more versatile.
And on special days I like to try and dress my children in a similar colour palette.
I know it sounds silly,
but when you take as many photos as I do,
having you children in coordinating outfits
can really make the pictures extra special.
So when F+F at Tesco asked us to put together some party outfits
from their range of clothing,
I knew I'd be looking for versatile clothes,
that can be dressed up for a party,
that are comfy and cute,
I was amazed by how reasonable the clothes on the F+F site were
and my money went a long way.
So far in fact that I managed to get both children two outfits for £50.
The choice was great
with all sorts of frocks for little ladies and shirts for little gents.
In my bid for matchy colours,
I picked these blue outfits.
I always love my kids in blue.
And having seen them in them together,
I've decided that these will be their Christmas Day outfits.
The beautiful boy's chambray shirt has a cute festive tartan trim
and a subtle snowflake design
which is Christmassy but not so over the top
that the shirt would look out of place at other times of year.
(The chambray long sleeved shirt sells for £12-£18.)
The jeans are really nicely made and a bargain at £8.
The beautiful girl looks adorable in her blue checked dress
with it's flower corsage detail
and delicate gold fleck.
(The checked corsage dress retails for £9.)
She simply had to have these glittery gold ballet shoes to match,
because it's pretty shoes which make a party outfit.
(These glittery pre walker shoes sell for £5.)
And for their second outfits
we went with a slightly differnt colour scheme.
The little man reused his jeans
but wore them with a trendy burgandy t-shirt (which is no longer available)
and a grey cable cardi for £10 (not pictured).
The little lady rocked a grey herringbone skirt with glittery flecks,
burgandy wooly tights,
(the skirt and tights are a set which costs £5.50 in the sale)
and a cream t-shirt with 'beautiful girl' across the front
(the t-shirt is £3 and my very own beautiful girl had to have it.)
Both children look so cute in their new outfits,
and are now thoroughly kitted out for the festive period with thanks to F+F at Tesco.
We were given a voucher to purchase these clothes
and to write this review.
But all opinions are my own.
