Inside: A look at a selection of pieces from the Organic SS20 Collection from Frugi | Gifted items
We have been fans of Frugi for years now, since discovering them when Lily was little. They are always so bright, colourful and fun but most of all they keep children looking like children. Do you know what I mean?
I look at the three of mine and time seems to be speeding up quicker than I can adjust to and it is hard. But when I look at this picture, I see my children. I see my babies. The clothes keep them at the age they truly are – instead of making them look like mini teenagers.
As much as their outfits would look fab anywhere, I wanted to show them off in their best light. So taking advantage a rare sunny and warm winter’s day, we went off for an explore in the woods.
My three would live outside if they could. They love nothing more than to run around, climb up and in and out and around all day long. These woods have a lovely rope swing, which is one of their favourite things to do there.
William chose his outfit from the website and it is his most favourite thing to wear right now. The Polzeath Pocket Top is so bright and sunny – it really lifts your mood on darker days.
His favourite part is the pocket being the grabber part of the digger. He is very much a collector of stuff so it is perfect for him.
My favourite part of the outfit is the Dig A Rainbow Snuggle Crawlers. They are thick enough to keep him warm but lightweight enough that they have been perfect for potty training during the last few weeks. They also have padded knees which is perfect for either younger ones crawling around or in his case, spending most of the day on his knees zooming cars around the floor.
I chose the girls’ outfits as I know them well enough to know what they like. Lily is very much a dresses girl so the Sofia Skater Dress was perfect.
It is made from the softest cotton, which even she commented on as being so soft and kept stroking it against my skin so I could see too. All of the clothes in the range are made from organic cotton and it really does make all the difference.
The print is gorgeous, with deer, flowers and trees – a lovely way to bring winter through to spring I think.
The sign of a good dress? Does it twirl? Honestly, she won’t wear one – including school dresses – unless it has a good enough twirl. As you can see, this one is a winner!
Grace was trickier to choose for as she is at that tricky age of wanting to dress older than she is. At 8 years old she would happily wear clothes that were for 13-year-olds. However, as soon as she put the Maya Dungarees on I could tell how much she loved them.
It is going to be perfect from Spring through to summer, teamed with a cardi for now but then having the short sleeves for the hot summer months.
My favourite bit? The pockets. I mean can you even wear something unless it has pockets? Not in my mind anyway! And look at the pattern – so colourful and smile-inducing. It is what an 8-year-old should be wearing and thankfully, for now, she agrees with me.
I mean look at them – don’t they look adorable?
One of their other favourite things to do is play in the teepees hidden in the wood, so off we went to see if we could find any.
Such a fun way to spend the afternoon and I hope it showed you how completely gorgeous Frugi’s new collection is for SS20.
