#MyTrendyTot Round Up 8 – Featuring Huntleys

As ever I am late with my round up for our fabulous Instagram community, #MyTrendyTot, why break the habit of a life time hey? I am going to start with my trendy little tot who is currently loving her cute little outfit from Huntleys*. This stunning two piece outfit and shoes are adorable and look fab teamed with these little knee high fox socks. The shoes came with a matching bow but, in true Aria style, Aria decided that she wanted her hair to hang free when we were taking these photos! Those of you that have been following this blog for a little while will know that Aria is a teeny tiny two year old which is why this 18-24 month old outfit is slightly too big for her. The elasticated waistline on the shorts combined with Aria’s slow growth means that they will last us a long time!

Aria’s cute outfit aside, let’s check out what the other cuties have been wearing on our hashtag lately, all with a splash of yellow simply because I am loving splashes of yellow at the moment.

 

Now I know eyes don’t make you trendy but those beautiful eyes are what drew me into this picture, and while I was there I fell in love with this cute and colourful striped top. See more from Abbey over on her blog, The Son and The Moon and don’t forget to visit her instagram – warning – the cute newborn photos will make you crazy broody!

 

How amazing are these wellies? I wonder if they do them in adult sizes… Kudos to mamma Becca for taking such a stunning Bluebell shot as well as providing awesome clothing. Don’t forget to check out Becca’s instagram and visit her blog, All About Her.

 

Now I know you can’t see much of an outfit here but I just love the little peek of the yellow raincoat. As I said, yellow obsessed. Be sure to check out Tasha’s Instagram and her bog, Mummy & Moose.

 

Matching yellow raincoats everyone! They have matching yellow rain coats! I’m a little in awe of this and a lot jealous too. Aria and I have matching yellow wellies and I’m now thinking that we need to add some matching yellow raincoats into the mixture! Be sure to visit Nadia’s Instagram where you will see lots of yellow splashes, and also visit her blog, Scandi Mummy.

 

Chantele and I are loving seeing all of your trendy tot photos, so please keep them coming! Simply post a photo of your child in an adorable outift onto Instagram and use the hashtag #MytTrendyTot for a chance to be featured. Be sure to check out the previous round up on Chantele’s Blog.

Chasing the Instagram Dream with Trespass

Developing the perfect instagram account isn’t easy, it takes time, effort and good shoes. Yes, you read that right, if you want the picture perfect instagram account you need to be prepared to climb places that you wouldn’t normally climb, go off the beaten track, therefore good shoes are most definitely an essential.

The Merse Women’s Waking Boots from Trespass* fit the bill perfectly and have become my go to instagram photo hunting footwear of choice. The walking boots are sturdy with a good grip and ankle support, which is very much a requirement when climbing up slippy slope-y hills and climbing over fallen trunks and twigs.

A blog review of women's walking boots from Trespass

Ain’t no tree stopping me with these bad boys on! I discovered the importance of instagram footwear on our most recent photography mission, when we decided to find a bluebell wood and I (stupidly) wore my Vans. We found the bluebells, up the top of a very steep hill. I struggled to get up said steep hill, I slipped and stumbled, at times I bum shuffled because my footwear just was not good enough for where we were. Bum shuffling in a forest is not good, I now have a hole in my trousers, RIP comfy trousers.

As you can see the bluebells were gorgeous but it was terribly difficult to climb, wearing my new go to instagram trainers would have made this shoot a whole lot easier. Judging by the looks of the above photo I think that Spencer, my (not so) glamorous instagram assistant could also do with a pair of snazzy walking boots like mine.

Watch out instagram – me and my new walking boots are gonna walk all over you!

And if you’re wondering, it was worth it, I got THE shot.

Exploring the Wetlands with Bax and Bay

We were recently sent a few items from Bax and Bay for review, items included their waxed cotton changing rucksack, The Zack, a Mama Fox sweater and the cutest little Fox Cub sweater. With new items to try out and photos that needed taking we decided to head to Newport Wetlands for a family day out / photo shoot.

The Wetlands, based in Nash Road, Newport is an RSPB site, and with a visitor centre, cafe, play area, lots of walks and wildlife it is a the perfect family day out. It ticks all the boxes for us as we got to go for a nice walk, Aria got to spot some birds and I got a pretty backdrop for my photos. Winning.

Mama Fox and Fox cub sweaters from Bax and Bay - a review

Aria and I love our matching Mama Fox and Fox Cub sweaters. They are great quality and a lovely fit. Aria’s is a hoody style sweater which she loves, this girl is a huge fan of walking around with her hands in pockets and also stashing items in said pockets. We did think it was a shame that they don’t stock a matching men’s jumper, well I did, Spencer was actually relieved as, unlike me, he finds the whole matching clothing thing a little cringe!

We’ve been looking for a practical rucksack changing bag for a little while, now that Aria is walking and we don’t always have the pushchair with us we wanted a more practical bag that didn’t fall off our shoulders and hit Aria in the face when we bent to pick her up mid strop. Not that that ever happened of course…

a review of the zack rucksack unisex changing bag from Bax and Bay

The Zack bag from Bax and Bay suits our needs perfectly. It is functional and unisex but doesn’t compromise on style. The inside of the bag is bright orange and it comes with a thick changing mat and a bottle insulator. There are two stretchy inside pockets which are perfect for storing the nappies and other changing essentials like cream and nappy bags and another smaller pocket on the outside of the bag which is the perfect size for a mobile phone. I would prefer an easier to release clasp but that really is just a matter of personal preference.

The portable changing mat that comes with the bag is nicely padded which makes it ideal for impromptu outdoor changes!

Bax and Bay are a relatively new Scottish based company specialising in multi-functional changing bags and clothing.

#MyTrendyTot Round Up 6

My trendy tot is currently loving her comfy yet adorable Blade & Rose Clothing*. Now that the sun is shining and we aren’t hiding our clothing away under layers and big coats it is the perfect time to wear a unicorn on your bum, don’t you think?

rainbow stripe colourful toddler leggings with cloud and colourful rain from Blade & Rose

If unicorns aren’t your thing then how about these amazing colourful rainbow leggings and matching tee? Perfect for both little boys and girls, with the only flaw being that the cloud is slightly see through, just pop a pair of white pants/knickers/plain white vest on and they are perfect. Do not pop a pink polka dot vest on underneath like someone did…

My trendy tot aside, let’s have a look at what the other trendy tots have been wearing over on Instagram.

I’m loving the bright colours and prints here, and the photo is adorable too! See more of Alana’s perfect clothing and photos on Baby Holiday.

#MyTrendyTot Round up No.4

I’m a little late sharing my picks for the fourth #MyTrendyTot round up, which, to be completely honest, should be expected! Better late than never is my motto. You can check out the third round up on Chantele’s blog here.

As always it was a struggle to pick, seriously those insta tots are so well dressed! It puts my wardrobe to shame that’s for sure. I decided to go for a Spring theme, bright colours make everyone happy right?

 

Obviously Lily’s amazing bright yellow dungarees from Little Green Radicals had to be included, they are amazing and I must get some for Aria.

Visit Lily’s fabulous mama Lucy on her blog Hello Beautiful Bear.

Isn’t Lucas the coolest little dude? This little outfit is just too cute.

‘Never Grow Up’ – how cute is that for a kids tee? LOVE it!


Last but by no means least sweet little Frankie won me over with her daffodil. I accept bribes by the way, preferably in the form of flowers or chocolates (or both), just FYI. Check out Frankie’s lovely mama’s blog all about her two AnkleBiters.

 

My trendy tot has been wearing her posh birthday dress from Next (January sale bargain!).
