I must admit, when I first found out that I was having a little girl at our 20 week scan, I swore that I wouldn’t turn her into a girly girl. That pink wouldn’t dominate her wardrobe and that dresses wouldn’t be her go-to outfit of choice.
Fast forward two years and I’m not really sure when I stopped abiding to this once declaration.
The one thing that I have stuck by, is that pink doesn’t dominate Evie’s wardrobe. Even though there are a few pieces scattered about in there to compliment outfits, she has always been spoilt by a whole rainbow of colours.
Dresses however, do make up the majority of her wardrobe. But purely because she suits them so well. Oh and also because it’s so hard to resist the beautiful prints and bright coloured dresses that are available online and on the high street.
I do love having a little lady to buy clothes for. We have a few favourite shops that we always buy pieces from, but now Evie is out of the cute ‘baby’ stage and fitting into a different age bracket, we’ve been on the lookout for new brands to try and a more grown up, less baby style.
Recently we were asked to review a dress made by Little Green Radicals. They are a company that I’ve heard of before in passing, but not one I’ve yet tried.
Little Green Radicals specialises in clothing that’s organic, high quality and fair trade. Any clothing that is adorable, reasonably priced and made by a company with incredible ethics definitely has me sold.
The Sping/Summer collection is nothing short of beautiful. Inspired by wild, forgotten gardens, the prints feature flowers and birds and the palettes are influenced by garden tones; from fence greens to muted golds and pale pinks.
We were sent the ‘Garden Green Seersucker’ dress to try and the cooing began as soon as we opened the parcel.
Evie looks so sweet in the dress and we were very impressed by the quality. The dress is made from 100% organic fairtrade cotton. Not only does it feel lasting, but it washes really well too.
Too often I buy dresses for Evie that fade in the wash or shrink slightly. But so far this dress has withstood my seriously bad washing skills and still looks brand new.
The little details on the dress, such as the frills on the shoulders, are such a sweet touch. The dress is made from soft organic seer sucker cotton and it feels really lovely to the touch. Plus it doesn’t irritate the skin like some materials, which is perfect for when the weather warms up and Evie no longer needs a vest.
The popper opening on the back is more than welcome too. I’m not sure about you but I always struggle to do up buttons on my very wriggly toddler first thing in the morning. Anything that makes getting her dressed quicker, is a win for me!
The dress gets kudo points all around from us and we already have our eye on a few more outfits on the Little Green Radicals website.
