We have had a lot of terrible weather in Cornwall at the moment, it’s been flash floods, windy as well as the heavy rain. Not really Summer weather! So when I was approached to review waterproof dungarees from Dry Kids I thought we have the right weather for it! Plus having a new garden freshly turfed it would be ideal for baby girl to get out and about and try them out.
Dry Kids have lots of waterproof outerwear on their site, catering for ages from 2 to 12 years. There are lots to choose from including jackets, trousers and wellies. We browsed through the website and loved the look of the waterproof fleece lined dungarees, in Raspberry of course! You can also get them in Yellow, Navy and Turquoise.
The dungarees reminded me of when I was small, I had a blue pair very similar and bright green frog wellies for splashing about in the mud!
It’s funny as before I had baby girl I didn’t know anything about kids clothes, didn’t realise how quickly toddlers grow, didn’t realise that the age on kids clothes doesn’t mean a lot if you have a bigger than average child. It’s only recently that baby girl is coming into her own style and much prefers hoodies and trousers to dresses and skirts. I mean how can a toddler climb around in the mud in a dress? I don’t mean to be stereotypical but she isn’t a ribbons and dress kind of girl. My husband and I have always been open to what she wears. She is very much like I was when I was younger – into the outside life playing with sticks and stones. She is obsessed with grabbing handfuls of gravel when we are out, so loves to be in her wellies and dungarees.
We were asked by new business owner Love Millie to try out their website and designing an item of clothing. After spending a while browsing through the site we decided to design a hoodie. Perfect for my rough and tumble toddler!
