(Non Family) Heirlooms

I have always loved traditional clothes for babies. Show me a Peter Pan collar, a ruffle (or even a ruff!), a Liberty print, or anything smocked, I’m there. So an earlier snoop on the John Lewis website revealed some gorgeous new Spring additions to their Heirloom collection (which starts at 0 and goes up to three years). These are my favourites. And not just for baby girls either – there is a surprising amount of lovely baby boy pieces too. It can be really tricky to strike that balance with traditional kids’ clothes – boys can end up looking a bit like they’re ‘in costume’, but I think good old John Lewis have got it spot-on here, particularly for a special occasion. Anyway, see what you think?

ps: the dress and matching knickers (above) is a definite favourite. Just adorable.
