Us Brits know that British Summer Time can mean one of two things; rain or sunshine. Luckily this year we’ve had a nice mix of both rain and sunshine but it often leaves us with a parenting dilemma in what to dress the children in.
Last weekend we were away in Lincolnshire camping with the family and of course we had to pack for every eventuality; warm and sunny, wet, cold and windy. We took a selection of clothing and footwear for the weekend so we could have as much fun whatever the weather.
House of Fraser recently asked us if we would like to choose something for Little Mr to help them celebrate the British Summer Time. Of course, with our camping weekend in mind, I chose welly boots and a rain jacket!
For Olly, I chose these adorable pair of Size 5 yellow Hunter Wellington Boots. They are just gorgeous. He wore them around the camping field all weekend and have been perfect for dewy wet grass and muddy puddles. I love that wellington boots can be worn all year round. Now Little Mr is walking, he’ll be getting a lot of use out of these boots both at home and on our camping trips. And hopefully in the snow if we get any this winter!
I also chose this adorable blue and white star waterproof rain jacket for Little Mr from Toby Tiger. It’s a lightweight jacket with a hood perfect for rain showers and the school run. It is fleece lined too so ideal for cooler days. I ordered the jacket in size 1 – 2 years and it has come up quite big on Little Mr so it will last us quite a while.
I’m sure you’ll agree how cute he looks in these photographs taken last weekend. He reminded me of a little duck waddling around with yellow feet. He got upset at one point because it was raining. Not sure why though as he made no attempt at getting under cover in the dry.
I really love the contrast red lining and the bright blue and white stars. I love Toby Tiger clothing. Always fun with practical elements perfect for little ones who like to have fun whatever the weather.
We had a fantastic weekend camping made even better with practical clothing and footwear. Thanks to House of Fraser for supplying the welly boots and jacket. Little Mr is looking forward to more puddle splashing and mud waddling for the rest of the Summer.
