A Lively Style // SS17 Rainbow Wishlist

ss17 rainbow wishlistThere’s something rather exciting about a new season of clothes – especially so for the children’s wardrobes (although Busby and H-Bear don’t quite share my passion).

I love perusing through my favourite stores whilst in the bath… I’ve been rather enjoying watching all of the new Spring/Summer 17 clothes starting to pop through. And this season there is SO much yellow!

Another trend I’ve been enjoying watching grow is the humble rainbow. Everyone seems to have gone mad for a rainbow this season, and I thought I’d showcase a few of my favourite pieces in case you’re also on the look out. I think I could probably dress the children entirely in rainbows this season!


I’ll start with my wishlist for H-Bear… and with something that I’ve actually already bought him! It wasn’t strictly in the SS17 collection either – but it does have a rainbow on!


I found this divine jumper in the Dapper Baby sale – it’s from Scandi brand Anive For The Minors who I’d not heard of previously, and I couldn’t resist it! It’s super soft, and I think H looks adorable in it, especially teamed with his new wellies from Muddy Puddles and his yellow rain mac that I found in the Zara sale!

Next up, is basically everything from The Bonnie Mob’s new Smile collection. This collection launched yesterday and it’s divine! You may have seen a few pieces featured on my Instagram Stories last night – but I’m especially fond of these two bubble rompers for H-Bear. He had a Bonnie Mob bubble romper last summer and we got SO much wear out of it because they look wonderful with a pair of tights and tee on cooler days. I’m also loving their homage to Bowie (all the heart eyes).

These Slugs’n’Snails rainbow tights would be ideal to pair with the denim bubble romper!

And of course, I couldn’t not mention the amazing The Bunting Tree, whose rainbow t-shirt makes me smile every time I dress H in it! Word on the street is that Emma has some new designs in the pipeline! Oh, and these t-shirts look fab underneath the Bonnie Mob rompers… #justsaying

So, what am I lusting after for Busby this season?

Well, again The Bonnie Mob have some gorgeous items for older children in their Smile collection. I’m especially in love with this beautiful denim dress!

Next have LOTS of rainbow goodies! My favourites are definitely the dungarees, which I’d dress both children in:

One dress that has caught my eye this season is this beautiful pinafore from the amazingly talented Kirsty at Wild Things. Her items are utterly GORGEOUS – and she has so many wonderfully creative designs for both genders!

This post could go on and on, but I should probably leave it there before I bankrupt you all…!

Where do you love to buy children’s clothes from? Have you found any special rainbows this season?

    Not thought about rainbows for fashion until this week when I saw Holly Willoughby in a rainbow top which I liked. Love your colourful fun choices all of them to be honest. Is there a link up this week?

    Oh you can’t beat the Wild Things dresses – Elma has their fox dress with slugs & snails fox tights and it’s just too adorable for words!
