What the Children Wore // Lilly & Sid SS17

lilly and sid ss17We absolutely adore British childrenswear brand Lilly & Sid, and were fortunate enough to be their brand reps back in 2015 when H-Bear was but a teeny bundle of baby! So, as you can imagine, I was over the moon when they offered to send the children some items from their divine SS17 range.

The new spring collection has a mixture of nautical and nature themes. There are mermaids, anchors, birds, flowers and even rainbows featured this season – all with Lilly & Sid’s quirky, inspired take on it.

Busby was sent the most beautiful Woven Collar Dress in the Mermaid Print (£30).

I adore the Peter Pan collar (I can’t resist a Peter Pan collar!), and the mermaid print is absolutely divine.

The A-line style of the dress is timeless. I can see this dress staying in the family for future generations! I want it in my size!

The dress looks perfect with tights, leggings or bare legs. It also looks great layered with a long-sleeved tee underneath or cardigan on top for cooler days.

The contrasting pockets on the dress are a lovely addition. Busby adores them for storing treasures on our walks (although I often forget to empty them before the dress goes in the washing machine!).

Busby wears age 4-5 years, which fits perfectly. She always looks very comfortable in the dress – and it’s ideal for everything from puddle jumping to parties!

H-Bear was sent two outfits.

First up is the Hello Anchor 3 Piece Set (£30).

The set compromises of anchor print joggers, a beautiful mint green tee with “Hello” on it and a coordinating bib. H-Bear isn’t the biggest fan of bibs sadly, so he wouldn’t wear it for this shoot.

I’ve made the outfit more ‘early spring day friendly’ with the addition of a striped long-sleeved tee from the other set H-Bear was sent.

The joggers are made from a lightweight sweater material, making them ideal for spring. I love the contrasting cuff too, which brings the whole outfit together.

H-Bear wears age 18-24 months, which fits well with some room to grow.

The second set is definitely my favourite. H was sent the 4 Piece Badged Bomber Set in the Whatever the Weather print (£32), and I cannot get enough of this outfit!

The set compromises of a gorgeous pair of jersey trousers with a very on-trend weather-themed print, a lightweight bomber jacket, a dribble bib, and the long-sleeved stripy tee I featured earlier underneath the ‘Hello’ tee.

The whole set is just perfect. He has worn the bomber jacket loads, as it’s an ideal lightweight layer and the colours go with everything.

Once again, H-Bear wears age 18-24 months. The sizing on this set is a little smaller than the Hello Anchor, so it fits perfectly.

All of the above items can be found on the Lilly & Sid website, along with SO many other gorgeous garments!
