Alex with her daughter Ophelia
Fulham mum Alex Geddes is our new regular columnist. Read on for her insights and observations about beauty, fashion and parenting.
The Jubilee Bank Holiday is nearly upon us, and there are so many sweet clothes out for your little ones, that I thought I'd pull together some of my favourites. And, the best bit is they can be re-worn all summer, to celebrate the Olympics!
So, while Fifi, Mr G and me are dressing up as the royal family (Mr. G is going to be Charlie boy and Fifi a corgi, whilst I drew the short straw and get to be a lady in waiting, I suppose it's better than Fergie), hopefully your children can rock some gorgeous clothes.
Let your little Prince dress to impress in a Corgi jumper from Joules, an adorable Barbour gilet with some crisp white shorts by Ralph Lauren and very practical Toms (Mr. G's current shoes of choice).
Miller, my favourite children's clothing brand, have made these sweet red gingham shorts, and cream top. Pair with Miller sandals and a bow (this one is Jubilee themed, I couldn't resist a hint of Union Jack, from Candy Bows).
A gorgeous flag print dress from Rachel Riley. Smart, cool and a definite talking point (if your child can talk, mine can say flag, but sounds like she is asking for a cigarette, so isn't encouraged). Team with some classic white sandals for a fresh summery take on Jubilee fashion. These are also by Miller
For the baby Prince Charming, what about this adorable romper, aptly named 'The Harry', from Jack and Lucy. Team with a smart white t-shirt and sunhat and your little man is good to go (to 'Public' if he is anything like the actual Harry).
Even if you are going away for the Bank Holiday, there is no excuse not to Jubilify your baby. He can sleep in this London bus baby-gro from Next, stay warm in a patriotic jumper from Trotters, cuddle up to his GB bunny, and pack it all away in this fab Union Jack Trunki.
