I didn’t know that I wanted blue, fringed, harem trousers for Bailey until I saw this oh-so-cute and cosy pair (they’re made from cotton fleece) from Oaks of Acorn. I’m always looking for an alternative to jeans as, like me, sometimes he wants to wear something soft and loose (‘sloungewear’ as we like to call it), and these trousers tick all the boxes. Worn with hi-tops (see some favourites below) and a hoodie, they’re cool enough to be seen outdoors, but still practical enough to play football in (another big tick for me if it means a break from the Barcelona kit). The hoodie is new in at Boden. If you haven’t seen the latest boys’ knitwear it’s worth taking a look; I’ve just added this grey and green jumper to my Bailey basket. I also like these striped pyjamas. Technically they are for girls, but as they don’t have any frills, flowers or fairies on them (I checked) I’ll keep that small detail to myself.
