Are you like me and spend more money and effort on buying and browsing for your kids clothes than your own? I spend so much on Parker it’s a little bit mad. But, do you know what? I just can’t get enough of kids clothing – especially now AW16 collections are on the way.
Did you know that River Island has a kids collection? No? Neither did I. I was working on a toddler holiday fashion post and wanted a kids trilby hat. After a little browsing I discovered a gorgeous one on the River Island website, I then got sucked into a kids fashion vortex and spent hours lusting after all of their pieces.
Firstly, their collection is bang on trend. They have so many gorgeous items, for boys and girls. I love the monochrome look, with print and graphic tees, as much as I love colour. The website is updated regularly, with new items available all the time (dangerous for my bank balance!). The Mini collection goes from 0-5 years, and the older boys are from 3-12 years.
Here are some of the items I’m currently loving. Isn’t that grey waffle jumper just lush? I love the rolled up sleeves!
Secondly, the choice is vast. From accessories, coats, jackets and shoes to t-shirts, jeans, joggers and two piece sets. They literally have everything covered. Now, if you’re a boy mum you’ll know the struggle of finding clothes in high street stores. I can walk into a store with rail upon rail of gorgeous girls outfits, compared to one rail of boys. Ridiculous! River Island have this covered though, there is so much to choose from. Yay!
We picked out a few items – trainers, two piece sets, joggers and some t-shirts. Going for a bit of a monochrome vibe, and preparing for the colder months. I think the trainers are my favourite – although they’re a little big at the moment. I tried to pick items that would be interchangeable, that would work will with each other.
Lastly, the items are good quality and in my opinion, good value for money. Parker is a very lively toddler, who is also very clumsy. Cue trips and scuffs, stains and dirt – all which came out in the wash. The items have held up after washing, quality and size wise. Another brownie point from me.
I’d definitely recommend heading over and checking out the River Island Kids Collection, I loved it and will definitely be asking for some gift vouchers for Parker’s birthday. I’m intending to head in to my local store to check out their range too!
Where do you usually shop for trendy kids clothes?
