Molo and a wild west week
29th June 2016
I have been quiet on the blogging front over the last week as it has truly been a tough week! First we had a flooded kitchen after a month’s worth of rain fell over our house in one hour last Wednesday night. That kept us awake all night with buckets, mops and then a Vax machine sucking up the water. I have to say Papa Pirate and I worked damn well as a team throughout the night to get the water up and out!! Then came Brexit, which I am still in shock over and have no idea where to start with my thoughts and annoyance! I am not even going to bother apart from to say that I am saddened by it all.
I have been cheering myself up by looking at cute children’s fashions to get me through the rain (and to avoid doing some work!!).
One thing I have loved since I started blogging is getting a sneak peak at up coming kids fashion trends. I am not qualified in kids fashion at all and nor will I ever claim to be. But over the past year I have taken a look at quite a few independent labels to see what is on offer as well as picked out some top pieces from the high street, all with the aim of not separating girls and boys clothes. However, I am now having a change of heart. So many brands are now recognising that girls don’t want to just wear pink and boys don’t simply want a polo t-shirt. The designs are looking fierce and fun – they are basically capturing the essence of being a 21st century kid. To me kids fashion is bolder and brighter.
For Charlie and the Pirates I was invited to the Molo pre SW16 pop-up event, I’ve got to know this brand over the last year and the clothes blew me away. The Wild West comes to kids fashion and the amazing animal prints is exactly what we need to bring cheer in this wet summer (which quite frankly is more like Autumn!). The Rhinestone jumper in a solid bright red was a highlight for me. The jewels will make any girl look like a pretty damn cool cowgirl.
My favourite is the horse print dress in a stunning pale blue. The striking palomino horse printed across the elasticated waste cotton dress is simply stunning and the youngest mini pirate absolutely loves it!
The monster jumpers really caught the eye of my biggest pirate and I think the pale blues would work on girls as well as boys.
The last piece I have a big crush on is the cactus dress. I really want to get my hands on it and team it up with some Stan Smith trainers for summer parties we have coming up.
Grab your hobby horses and get on board with these fab Wild West Molo pieces – yeehaa
