This week this cheeky top knotted tinker of ours is all about a new woolly hat.
These last few weeks I've been holding out on buying any more stuff for summer. … Ok. Aside from that H&M pre holiday last minute haul I Instagrammed the s**t out of *coughs*
The reason being, mid August is when the majority of the new season starts to creep in stealth like online. Gradually pushing the sale stock to tease you into buying a huge coat or wooly hat in 30 degree heat.
It seems ridiculous to be thinking that far ahead, trying on knitwear in the height of summer but it is the time to seriously consider the big winter purchases, such as coats and a few staples.
Because my friends it's when all the reallllllly good stuff is up for grabs.
You think you'll be able to get that Bobo Choses Hat everyone's champing at the bit for on IG mid October?
You'll be lucky!
The hotly anticipated new AW14 range inspired by 'a day out in LA is launching in UK Stockists at the stroke of midnight 11th August. And you can bet your Louboutin's it will all be out of stock quick smart.
Don't miss out, Keep your stylish eyes peeled on Cissy Wears, Milly Mog, Sister's Guild, Scandinavian Minimall and Archies Boutique for the best picks of the range. Or use the store locator on the Bobo Choses website to find a stockist near you.
I've also been scouring the high street for a few staple bits and bobs I'll be snapping up for the top knotted tinker. She'll be mixing up her prints, punches of colour, textures of dainty skirts teamed with oversize chunky knits and layering up to keep her toasty and comfortable this AW.
Trust good ol' reliable go to Zara to come up with the goods.
The girls range is incredible, the boys however, a little uninspiring I'm sorry to say. I'm on the trawl at the moment for the dude.
And so, a few finds that are tickling my fancy for little lady…
Coat – Zara – £29.99
This shape is just adorable, the print is a great alternative to the higher end price tags with the same impact. For the amount of wear a coat like this will get from a toddler, as beautiful as they may be an £80+ price tag I just can't justify it.
Jumpsuit – Zara – £25.99
Team up with a long sleeved top underneath, a chunky snood, boots and ribbed tights. Or cute pumps and a leopard print headscarf.
Skirt – Zara – £15.99
Wear with thick tights, oversize knit and Dr. Martens to dress it down and mix up the textures. Beautiful.
Get wear from your little ladies party dresses and skirts in the same way.
….. This oversize knit in volcano red from Mango kids at £16.99 would work perfectly.
Just like Mummy's! Pumps – Zara – £29.99
Dress – Rasberry Plum available at Archies Boutique in other colour ways – from £30.00. Edie HAS to have it!.
Boots – Dr. Marten – available from Office £49.99. Pricey, yes. Versatile. Absolutely.
Floral Boots – Zara – £29.99
All of the above would work well with t shirts, cardies, jeans and leggings she already has.
Have a good ruthless clear out, I do it a few times a year before buying for the new season to make sure I'm making the most of what still fits and not duplicating. Filling in any spaces. You could find this post
Find me on Twitter and Instagram, I'd love to see what you're liking the look of for AW14.
