Classic holiday dressing that will last your little ones into autumn and beyond

Having unpacked and now fully installed ourselves in a dreamy French home for the next 10 days I thought I’d share with you an edit of a late summer holiday wardrobe for your kids that is both classic, and also a big tick in that tricky trans-seasonal box. You may be thinking how’s a white cotton dress going to help me in early October? But if you throw on a grey chunky cardigan with some black tights and lace up boots you start to get the idea. Obviously, you can never have too many bretons or cashmere jumpers whatever your age and gender 😉 and they will always be perfect for chucking on post bracing swim or breezy evening.

Finally, I can’t believe I haven’t yet shared with you this gorgeous jumpsuit. I spied it at the end of the spring and then, unbeknown to me, Clemmie’s Godmother bought her one for her birthday and said she was so thrilled with it she’d popped one in the basket for her own daughter. It’s been a one stop wonder all summer and it’s with great delight that I can tell you it’s still in stock in every size!

Love it all. And not a tacky sports top in sight! If only my boys would wear something that isn’t made of polyester or nylon with a Wales or Tottenham badge on it.
