Before having a daughter, I was in awe at all the gorgeous girl’s clothes that were available. They hung on their shop hangers looking so pretty. I had two boys and there was just never anything super cute that screamed ‘I have to get that for them’. There was nice clothes but not like what girl’s had to choose from.
Now that I have a daughter (and another on the way), I am discovering that, dare I say it, there may be too much to choose from! It is so hard to know what is going to last the distance and actually be value for money. I don’t like to spend a great deal on kids clothing as they are so rough and tumble and grow dreadfully fast but I want the clothes to be hard wearing and affordable.
Charli Bird poncho – Little Chicks
A lot of brands and items of clothing I have bought for my daughter have come with high reviews from other mums. This is why I feel I must share the latest piece Poppet has been given. I have talked about the brand Charli Bird on the blog before, but it has been for adult products (scarves in particular because I’m a scarf addict). Well what you may not know is that they have now got a range of kid’s products exclusively available online. The Charli Bird ponchos for Little Chicks are absolutely adorable and perfect autumn and winter weather.
The budget friendly mum in me loves the versatility that these ponchos provide. They are designed to grow with your child for years; initially it will be a longer style poncho and as your child grows it will become more of a short shawl whilst remaining stylish and well fitting.
These little girls ponchos are designed in Australia by Charli Bird and made from a blend of 70% wool and 30% polymine which gives a soft cashmere feel. I cannot believe how incredibly soft it is, even after being washed! Oh and speaking of washing, it doesn’t shrink or lose its shape. I love how adaptable this piece of clothing is; it is ideal for wearing over tights or jeans and is suitable for a trip to the park or to dress up for dinner.
Because every little girl is different, they are available in 4 colours: Lollipop – hot pink/orange, Bubblegum – purple/mauve, Blue Heaven – dark blue/ light blue, Liquorice – black/ cream. Poppet has Bubblegum.
S/M suitable for 3-5 year olds and M/L for 6-10 year olds. For specific measurements of the ponchos visit the Charli Bird website.
Just in case you are sitting on the fence with these adorable pieces; they are currently on sale. Prices start at $59.95.
