retro pants

Little Bird By Jools Underpants 5 Pack (12 months-5 years)
I love that these boys’ pants have a bit of a retro feel to them, and the colours are great. And let’s be honest, if you’re thinking about/in the process of toilet training (gird your loins if you’ve got twins!), it’s not about blowing the budget on expensive pants. These will do the job perfectly.

boys need cute pants too

Gap Days Of The Week Dinosaur Pants (2-5 years)
These are the boy equivalent of the girls’ pants I posted on 8th August. I couldn’t stock up on cute kickers for Tabitha without getting a stash for Marlow too. Ok, so he is not particularly interested in them (are boys/men ever really?), but he does like the fact that they are all different, funny dinosaurs. Admittedly, he is even less interested in whether he is wearing Monday’s pants on Thursday (surprisingly). Anyway, these were by far the cutest ones around on the high street (although Petit Bateau had some great plain ones in the sale that I snapped up).

days of the week

Gap Days Of The Week Pants (2-5 years)
Potty training twins has definitely been a challenge (and one that I wouldn’t necessarily want to repeat any time soon), but I’m pretty much there now. But I do think that buying an abundance of cute knickers really helped, particularly for Tabitha (well us girls all want pretty knickers don’t we?). I have been letting her choose which pair she wants to wear, which she loves. Each pair has a cute little animal on the back (for some reason she is obsessed by the fox pair…). I have the Stella McCartney days of the week knickers myself (thank you Tom!) and love them, so when I saw these I just had to have them for Tabs. They are so sweet. But obviously she is very rarely wearing the correct day, but then I have to confess, neither am I!

Zara Denim Knickers (1-9 months)
During the Summer months I had a slight challenge dressing Tabitha when she was still wearing nappies (which was about two weeks ago!). When she wore dresses without tights, I had the whole issue with the nappy. I didn’t want to have a nappy on show (so not chic), letting her otherwise, cute ‘look’ down. So what to do? This is where knickers like these save the day! You can just pop them over their nappy, and they’re good to go (and still stylish in the process). I often used to just keep the ones I liked that were sold as a set with a dress (Gap often do them). Navy ones look good with most dresses. But good old Zara often just sell cute knickers on their own, such as these (I bought a gorgeous grey and white gingham pair last Summer that doubled up as bikini bottoms on holiday). I love that these are denim! Again, like navy, denim goes with pretty much everything, and they would look so cute with say, a Liberty print dress. These are now in the sale (sadly, only in size 1-3 months – sorry, should have posted them sooner) so I would snap a pair up quick if I were you!
£3.99 (were £7.99) 

ps: did anyone else order the lotiekids t-shirt and leggings that I posted on 27th June? I got back from Cornwall on Saturday night to find a parcel waiting for me. I absolutely love them! They are so cute (I bought them for Tabs to wear as pyjamas, but they will definitely be having an outing too at some point – probably separately), and the quality is fantastic. There is even a little name tag stitched into each piece which you can fill in. Such a sweet detail. Tabitha also has one of the plain t-shirt dresses (in that same dusky pink), which looks so cool on. I am a big fan (and I’m not on the payroll I promise)!


Vertbaudet 4 x Pack Of Knickers (6 months-3 years)
Just because they are so cute… But I am curious to know who these six month old babies are who are wearing pants already?? I am also curious about the missing pair of pants in this pic when they are sold as a pack of four? But hey, don’t sweat the small stuff right?
