Boys, boys, boys…
Trawling for boys’ clothes online (or indeed, in the stores) can be an uninspiring process. There are great things out there, it’s just a little harder to find them than the girls’ versions. I’ve specifically focused on the High Street for this particular post, which I think takes the challenge to a harder ‘level’, but at the end of the day, this is why I started this post in the first place. I am not daunted by ‘the trawl’. So these are my finds (grouped by store, for ease). Marlow already has quite a few of these pieces, as these are all stores that I shop at for him. I probably buy the most things for him in Next, H&M if I’m being completely honest. I have also included a brand that I love for boys, . Marlow has quite a few of their pieces – he loves their super-soft tees and jersey ‘slounge’ pants. And the prices are good (not necessarily as cheap as the High Street, but good value). Anyway, take a look… I genuinely really like each and every piece I have selected. But it did take a while, I’m not going to lie!! Phew.
M&S do some great boys’ things, and seeing as generally I’m in one of their stores at least two to three times a week when I’m not away shooting. I love the ease of it… How cool are these pants? Love these chelsea boots, thermal leggings (so useful!), denim jacket, pyjamas, tees, more pyjamas, these trainers, this parka (it would make a great school coat), and these pyjamas (strong pyjamas game, M&S!).
Also worth noting, The Little White Company do my favourite classic gingham pyjamas (and in red). I buy them every Winter, and have already bought Marlow’s (then found a pair the day before yesterday I had squirrelled away last year, in a drawer. Bloody typical).
Over and out.
ps: one of my lovely ex-assistants, and dear friend, Chloe Forde recently made a series for You Tube with Alex & Alexa about motherhood, Motherhood Unedited, and she asked to interview me for it. To be completely honest, I did it as a bit of a favour, as I really do not like doing things like this, and consequently completely forgot all about about it until the morning of the interview. I had a week-old blow dry (and a scalp full of dry shampoo!!), the house was a mess, and I was completely unprepared. But once we got chatting, it was literally like we were the only ones there (not squeezed into my tiny courtyard garden with a cameraman and a sound engineer. Anyway, you can see it for yourself here. Let me know what you think?
