Kids For Only a Short Time

Now this is how I love to see kids dressed. Childhood is so short a time and most kids now look like mini versions of teenagers. These are true British classics, beautifully made and perfectly named. By Tulip and Nettle

I couldn't agree more Di! I always try to dress my four year old in children's dresses with smocking etc. I hate the trend of putting them in mini-teenager clothes. This time is so fleeting and precious it should be valued. There is enough time later for the slogan t-shirts and tackier adultish styles! Often people stop me on the street and comment on her clothes. I pick up some lovely outfits on EBay so it doesn't have to cost a lot either. xx

I love this. I used to dream of clothes like these when I was a kid.

Very beautiful, it's classic but subtile and creative.Of course it's a sort of dream; we all know that children like chocolate and jumping in the mud but let's dream!

I'm old school I hate it when they make children look to grown, I like for babies and children to dress like children. I love these coats and all of the outfits on these children so classic and simple I like that.
