First boots and Little Bird love


It was a bit of a milestone yesterday. I bought my little girl her very first pair of boots. Ankle boots in soft greyish-purple leather with a little bit of feisty sparkle round the top. In fact, seeing as she expressed her love for shoes and shopping so much (she cried and said “No!” when I tried to remove a pair of new red leather Mary Janes from her feet), I ended up buying her a pair of shoes too.

The shoes she’s been wearing were about three months old, and it suddenly dawned on me that although they still went on easily, her feet are bound to have grown a fair bit since we bought them. I was right, when we got her measured she’d gone up a size from a 4 to a 5. Big feet like her mum and bro!

We bought these Flora boots from Clarks, as they looked so cute with her thick grey tights and bright purple dress. I think boots are a bit warmer and sturdier for winter, but it’s always handy to have shoes too so I went for these navy ones from Little Bird at Mothercare.

It’s the first time I’ve bought something from Jools Oliver’s range but the quality seems really good and at £15 the price isn’t bad either. The clothes and shoes have a retro feel – think Peter Pan collars for girls and braces for boys – are all in bright, cheery rainbow colours.

Both pairs are pictured – the boots are slightly scuffed, as she had to wear them out of the shop. Of course she did!
