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?
love the outfit it is adorable! I always buy clothes in a size too big, always! #TT_ThursdayReplyDelete
Ha ha yeah I often do it - better too big than too small in my opinion so you'll get some use out of it!Delete
I think both outfits are adorable, I unable to decide which I like most. They look wonderful on your daughter. Thank you for sharing #TT_ThursdayReplyDelete
Thank you :) I really like the cardigan but my husband thought it was too boyish... I still think it is very cute!Delete
Kaunis pieni neiti teillä. Tosiaan suomalaiseen silmään näyttää aluksi oudolta tumma puku lapsella, mutta oikeastaan musta mekko näyttää vaan siistiltä ja arvokkaalta. Voisi omallekin lapselle pukea, jos vastaan tulisi, materiaali varsinkin kuulostaa hyvältä. -T.ReplyDelete
Joo Suomessahan tuntuu olevan suositumpaa iloiset varit ja sellainen 70- luvun tyyli eri printteineen. Se on kyl sopoa, ja lapsille sopiva! Mut taakin tyyli nayttaa mielestani kivalta :)Delete
What beautiful clothes! The French do have a sense of style don't they?ReplyDelete
They do! I've got some other French brands I really love too :) Spanish kids brands do good stuff too!Delete
Sounds like you had a fab day! What a gorgeous selection of clothes! I absolutely love French style. It's just so effortless. That second dress is so cute. I'd defitinely wear it. The last photo is amazing! She is such a cutie and reminds me of Little I haha. Thanks so much for linking up with us and hope you have a great weekend! :) #weekendministyleReplyDelete
Ha ha thank you :) I think Little I and Aili must be quite similar in some ways - both seem to love dressing up (I wonder why, parental influence perhaps ha ha!) :)Delete
Thanks ever so much for hosting, it has been great to tag along :)
What a great selection of clothes! I live the preppy style! Sounds like you had a very fashionable day! xx #TT_Thursday #WeekendMiniStyle xReplyDelete
It was! If love more days like these in the future, it was fun :)Delete
What beautiful clothes - so stylish!! I love the French style! xx #weekendministyleReplyDelete
French really do pull off quite a cute style - quite grown-up but still appropriate for little kids :)Delete
Definitely yay! She looks gorgeous in this outfit, super stylish xx #weekendministyleReplyDelete
Thanks - I find this is a great outfit to wear to town, or when we go shopping :)Delete
She looks so stylish! I love the second dress, I really like the detail around the neck and cuffs.x #weekendministyleReplyDelete
It's a good one! It is quite subtle, but looks very nice. A little splash of colour in an otherwise dark outfit :)Delete
Ihania mekkoja! Ostin juuri tyttärelleni TK Maxxista vähän samanhenkisen mekon. Ihailen muutenkin miten nätisti puet Ailia. Olen lueskellut blogiasi jo pitempään, kun oma tyttäreni on suurin piirtein saman ikäinen, mutta en ole aiemmin tainnut kommentoida. Nyt päätin ryhtyä kertaheitolla aktiiviseksi blogosfäärissä ja aloitin omankin blogin! puolivalissa.wordpress.comReplyDelete
(ja heti piti koheltaa, yritin kirjautua wordpress-tunnuksilla, mutta se ei onnistunut ja niinpä tuossa yllä kirjauduin vanhalla blogger-tunnuksellani, missä ei ole mitään tietoja ja se tuntui hölmöltä...)
Kiitoksia, tosi ihanasti sanottu :) Mä oon kyl melkoinen vaatehirmu, tuleepi noita ostettua ja tietty kiva että joskus näitä sponsoroitujakin! Täytyy käydä vastavierailulla sun uudessa blogissa, tervetuloa bloggaajaks, on tää kyl kiva harrastus!Delete
How beautiful is she. :) -Iida (entisen blogin lukija Suomesta)
Thank you ja kiitos, ja kiva että oot pysynyt mukana näinkin pitkään! :)Delete
Gorgeous outfits, I love the second dress. I was invited to this but just couldn't get to London xxReplyDelete
Thank you, it is really beautiful isn't it! I was gutted when I wasn't able to go to the earlier event in Westfield, but glad I could make this one. Bugger you didn't get to come, hopefully next time!Delete
I love the outfit! It's so so cute! xxx #FKFReplyDelete
