This month with Very has been all about versatility, from top brands for Felix to getting organised for Indies birthday, I’ve truly discovered just how vast the ranges are that this one-stop-shop covers.
Felix is now 8 - I’m not quite sure how that happened. Boys fashion has always been trickier than girls, I’ve always found finding clothes for him a bit of a challenge - it’s either a little boring or there’s not much choice.
Felix has now reached the stage where he likes to pick his own clothes. I know a lot of people dread this (I did a little bit), but fortunately for me the boys got style and fab taste! He is all about brands, especially when it comes to the all-important footwear. Very cover all his favourites from New Balance to Converse - he had so much choice. Like me, Felix loves a bit of camo now, and his favourite trousers must be this super cosy pair from the V by Very range which seems to be right on point this season.
When we have days at home we’re all about wearing our comfies, with the older children back at school and me working from home Tiggy and I have found ourselves spending a lot more time in the house. So, this month, we’ve delved into the very cosy category (there isn’t a cosy category). I’ve been all about cosy jumpers and my new little luxury Ugg slippers which are such a treat... but hey I work from home slippers are my uniform right?
I’ve always liked a bit of unisex dressing for my babies and when I spotted this baby blue ‘Milk’ set in the boys’ section I just had to have it for Tigs. It’s so cosy and blue is totally her colour - it really makes her eyes pop! I finally got a blue-eyed baby, so I like to talk about it as much as I can and show those bad boys off.
I can’t quite believe that my biggest girl Indie turned seven this month! I love prepping for birthdays and really spoiling them, although I do wish they could make their gift requests and stick to them. Please say it’s not just my children that have a change of heart for the gift they 'want the most and can’t possibly live without' right at the last minute? It’s not at all stressful!!
Indie finally settled on wanting to try out some roller skates. Thankfully Very’s delivery is super speedy and when I spotted these retro beauties with flashing wheels I knew I’d hit the jackpot! Do they do them in adult sizes? Now that’s the real question.
