As Grace gets older, I am finding that she is getting more and more picky about what she wears (and how she wears it!). I am certain that at the age of 9 I was not this bad – although I am sure if you ask my mum she will tell you I most definitely was! Grace is always talking to me about what is ‘in the style’ and she is extremely opinionated about what I wear too. Not that I let her thoughts influence me – otherwise I would be very uncomfortable.
At the moment Grace is going through another growth spurt so we are regularly keeping an eye out for any bargains. There are a number of great second hand shops in town and I have to say that we often find some great pieces of clothing there – for both of us. It isn’t always feasible to find what we are looking for there though so we also regularly look through the internet together when we are seeking out new clothes, whether it be for her or for me.
One of the places we both enjoy shopping is House of Fraser and I asked Grace to share with me some of her picks for the summer from the Kids Clothing section and below are 5 of the items that she choose and her comments for each piece.
Monsoon Girls Angelica Dress
This dress is quite nice, not usually what I would go for but overall it is quite pretty. I would wear it if you were going to meet someone for the first time and you wanted to make a good impression.
Monsoon Girls Frou Frou Frill Bikini
This is really pretty and I think everyone would enjoy it if they went on holiday and wore it. I would definitely lay on the beach in this.
Monsoon Girls Ontario Dress
This one is idyllic because it has so much detail around the top part. I would wear it to any balls, parties or anything like that. I like the fact that it has a big skirt too!
Monsoon Girls Lacey Jacket
This one is really cool and in the style. I would wear it when you are meeting up with your friends at the skate park or something like that. It would pretty much go with anything.
Yumi Girls Girls Ditsy Floral Print Maxi Dress
This dress is lovely and flowery and bright for summer. I would wear it to the beach or out when I am on holiday.
I have to say that I found it really interesting that she chose a number of items from Monsoon (thankfully all in the sale). I do hope that it is not a sign of things to come – this girl has expensive taste!
