French preppy style with Jacadi: Toddler OOTD #35
In collaboration with Jacadi UK
It is fun being a blogger sometimes - when for example you get to pop by for a breakfast of macarons and check out a new children's clothing shop! (OK, this isn't a regular occurrence unfortunately ha ha)
So, before Christmas I was invited to come and view Jacadi's new French children's fashion store in London. I love children's clothes and love finding new brands about which to rave. The style we dress our daughter is quite mixed - I love the preppy French style represented by Jacadi, but her wardrobe also contains lots of Scandinavian bold colour splashes. No need to limit your sartorial choices at an early age in my opinion!
I got to pick an outfit to take home and chose a dark blue wool-cotton dress with white and red accents and a cotton-cashmere cardigan to match. And some little hair clips to top the outfit off.
It took a while for me to make my final choice as there were many many dresses I had my eye on. I loved the high quality materials, with plenty of wool/cashmere mixes and thick cotton. In the end a warm preppy dress was the winner as I figured she could use one for this winter. The fit runs true to size - a fact I discovered after I got a size too big a dress for her thinking French kids must be tiny. Never mind though - we shall be wearing Jacadi next winter too. Which is not a bad thing at all!
And OK - although I do love the preppy style my daughter is probably the least preppy stylish toddler there is, as evident by the last picture!
What did you think of the outfit? Preppy - yay or nay?
