I really love picking clothes for Ava and I actually find it really interesting how they change and my tastes change as she gets older. Now that’s she’s almost five her tastes come in to it a lot more now, although quite often she picks the ugliest thing possible and then I try to edge her towards the nicer things, rather than the glittery tops with a funny looking Pug on them. When she was younger she would wear a lot more pink but I’ve realised recently that at some point I stopped choosing the bright pink jeans for her and go for blue or black.
I always tend to prefer her summer wardrobe to her winter one; in summer she will rock some cool simple dresses and denim shorts and a t-shirt with some lovely sandals. But in winter it often ends up being black skinny jeans and a long sleeved plain t-shirt. She always looks lovely of course but I just always find her summer wardrobe a lot more fun and stylish. So I’m always looking for some winter clothes that are a bit more fun.
I love shopping online for Ava. I don’t go in town that often, and she’s a total pain in the bum after about ten minutes if I try to take her to a shop to try things on, and we get nowhere fast. So I was pleased to hear that Boohoo has started a kids range. I worked with them a few months ago on their new fitness range, and after browsing their website I discovered that they have a huge range of products at really great prices.
We were asked to check out the new children’s range, and so I chose a few pieces for Ava that I really liked. I do quite like black on kids when they’re a bit older – it always seems to look quite cool. And apparently I was feeling the black when I chose these clothes.
The clothes aren’t the cheapest available on the high street, but they are still very good value. I got these four items for exactly £30. The sizing for Ava was pretty much perfect – a couple of things were slightly too big – but that is a good thing so that they last slightly longer. I did buy them all in age 5 though, and she’s usually on the smaller end of sizing. I have also heard from others that the kids clothes from Boohoo come up quite small, but I think we were quite lucky with the items we chose, and they fit her well.
I love this ‘Daughter’ tee; I love the simplicity of it, and I think it looks cool in black and white. It’s really soft and A seems to be very comfy in it.
It costs £6.00 which isn’t bad and it feels like really nice quality, and I think it will last Ava for a while.
Then we (I) chose this cool little floral bomber jacket to wear over it – it’s lovely, but I was expecting it to be a bit thicker as it is from the winter range, so it would be better once it’s not so freezing cold. It is cute though. It’s £12 so I guess if it was thicker it would be more expensive.
Then we got this cardigan in black as I thought she could do with a black cardy to wear over things. It’s a nice simple style with pockets and fits her really nicely.
I then chose another black item – this waterfall crepe blazer. I thought it would be nice over Christmastime to wear over some nice outfits to make it slightly more dressy, and she didn’t really have anything like this.
I’m really happy with the clothes we got from the Boohoo kids range – they all fit her really nicely and are good prices for children’s clothing. I do wish the website gave better descriptions of the pieces – some of them don’t have any at all, which is a bit annoying.
There are always offers on at Boohoo, and delivery can be as little as £1.99 if you’re not in any rush. I do prefer to shop at places online that offer free delivery though, as I feel like I’ve wasted some money if I don’t keep anything – so I would be much more inclined to shop at Boohoo again if they offered free delivery.
Boohoo do a great range of kids clothing, allowing you to follow a lot of the current trends at very good prices. We’ve been really happy with our purchases.
We were sent some items from Boohoo Kids to review, but all words and opinions are my own.
