What the Children Wore // Boys&Girls – a tennis special!
Earlier this week I collaborated with the Lawn Tennis Association and BritMums to write about why tennis is so important to us as a family (and to let you know about signing up for an awesome free session with your local tennis club for Great British Tennis Weekend – #GBTW). The lovely folk at Boys&Girls very kindly supplied the children with the outfits for that post, and for this week’s What the Children Wore.
Boys&Girls are a fantastic British children’s clothing brand based in London. Constantly inspired by their surroundings; their clothes are vibrant, practical and always so much fun! They are also made from 100% GOTS certified organic cotton, which means they’re durable and ideal for sensitive skin.
I love Boys&Girls clothes; we have quite a few pieces for both children, and they’re wonderful for playing in! They are completely unisex too, which makes them ideal for standing the test of time no matter what gender your children are.
We were sent a matching outfit for each child from the tennis-inspired ‘Netty’ collection, which I thought would be ideal for a tennis special! Especially as Wimbledon is currently on.
The ‘Netty’ Champ tee is a beautiful tennis-net-inspired fabric with appliquéd “Champ” motif in vibrant green. The motif contrasts wonderfully with the blue of the t-shirt, and the green trims and piping also add to the vibrancy; they really make the top stand-out!
It also looks great with a pair of leggings or jeans for cooler days.
I’ve had so many positive comments about this awesome t-shirt; the ‘Netty’ tee costs £20 and comes in sizes 1-10 years.
The children were also sent matching ‘Netty’ shorts in the fun print to complete the look. They have a wide ribbed waistband, making them ideal for independent dressing, and comfortable for dressing over cloth nappies.
I find that so many kids shorts are too short this season, but these are a great length (to the knee) and are practical for tree climbing, running and (of course) tennis playing! Not very subtle for hide-and-seek though!
The ‘Netty’ shorts cost £18, and also come in sizes 1-10 years.
Sizing wise, H-Bear wears age 1-2 years and Busby age 3-4 years; there is plenty of growing room for both in these outfits, and I can’t wait for summer to reappear so they can continue wearing the shorts! I love the almost romper-esque look when wearing the set together; it’s fun, it’s child-like, and they do really look like they should be Ball Boys&Girls (see what I did there?!) at Wimbledon over the next two weeks.
The ‘Netty’ outfits, plus a plethora of other bright, beautiful clothes, can be found on the Boys&Girls website. I urge you to go and check out their amazing clothes – I’m so excited to see what AW16 brings.
