Toddler OOTD #37 - Our Marimekko girl
Now who could resist a bit of colour in spring time? Or rather, a lot of colour!
I love Marimekko clothes for kids - they are so bright, so fun, so childlike. They are just utterly gorgeous. And being a Finn myself, I love supporting Finnish brands, both big (such as Marimekko) and small.I love having my girl flying her half-Finnish heritage flag out there, be that by talking in the language or wearing the design.
We had a bit of a mishap with the shirt though when she got hold of a big black Sharpie... Ending with a splodge of black Sharpie on her brand new utterly gorgeous pink shirt. Thankfully we didn't end up with a big black scribble on her front as I managed to grab it off her before it went too far. But nonetheless, it got her.
After lots of wet wiping, consequent Vanish soaks and washes, some rubbing with a vinegar/stain remover solution, and even a bit of a try with surgical spirit before another Vanish wash the black splodge became a faded light blue splodge. Still there, still mocking me every time she wears the shirt, but I remain hopeful that over time it will fade... Well. You can always hope. Ha ha. We shall see who will get the last laugh. (It'll probably be that damn Sharpie though)
In times like this I always try to remind myself that this is a prime example of a First World problem if there ever was one!

She is such a blogger baby in these pictures by the way - coming back from a book launch holding her bloggers goody bag, and clutching her My Carry Potty, another blogging goody bag gift. We were waiting for the train and of the joy on her face when it finally arrived!
