Double Denim

Double denim. A trend that divides fashion critics, and is notoriously difficult to pull off. Many have tried and failed, including myself. Well, I'm a bit biased, but I think Jack has got it so right. He's teamed his delicious H&M denim shirt with Baby Zara skinny jeans, and Navy Converse. I found this shirt at the weekend, snapping it up for only £5.99. What a steal.

Below, Jack shows off his boss table skills. For a one and a half year old he is really good with a knife and fork! Sometimes I would prefer him to just use his spoon, but he watches us eating with cutlery and he insists on eating his dinner in the same way. Ah well, it's all good practice, even if it can get messy!

Geek Chic

Hey hey! We haven't talked in a while. I've missed you. We've been on our holibobs - Check out Jack's tan. He doesn't take after his Daddy or I in that department. We both have Irish skin that won't tan for toffee.

I wanted to show off Jack's new sneakers. They are so class! As regular readers know, we're a family of Converse converts. I had been on the lookout for a pair of white toddler Converse in the next size up, when I came across these Adidas Neo High Tops. What a great alternative, and they are so very 80's. Can't you just imagine him hanging out at the diner in an ep of Saved by the Bell? As you can see, they are already a bit dirty from a trip to the park yesterday, but I happen to think white trainers always look better when they have been worn in. Jack is also wearing a t-shirt and skinny jeans from Baby Zara.

Below is the face Jack makes when you ask him to give you a "cheesy grin". He's such a character. And what a lot of teeth he's getting now. Every day we play 'spot the new molar'!

Letting-on Lederhosen

We have been waiting patiently for a little bit of sunshine here in the land that summer forgot. We woke up to a few rays this morning and I decided today would be the day Jack could try out his new Zara Baby shorts. They kind of remind me of Lederhosen, but I happen to think they're super cute anyway. He's also wearing a vintage polo shirt and his vintage T-bar shoes.
And that's all we have to say about that.

I thought I would share a couple of photos of Jack looking a little sheepish in his new hand-knitted jumper, given to us by my best friend. She didn't knit it - rather it was another vintage gem she picked up in a second hand clothing shop. Vintage hand-knit clothing always gets me thinking. Who knitted it, and for whom? One thing always stands out, and that's the care and attention that has gone into the creation of the piece, and although it wasn't originally made for Jack, it has found him, and we get to share a little piece of someones talent and affection.
