Vertbaudet Autumn / Winter Review

As you probably already know, I'm a great fan of the children's clothes and furnishings at Vertbaudet. Over the coming months I'm looking forward to trying out some of their maternity clothes and in the new year, their designer baby clothes too.

Vertbaudet recently sent Lara a brand new outfit to try out - it freaked me out how grown up she looked in it.

Lara's flared skirt is currently on offer at £10.50 and the Happy Price grey short-sleeved grey cardigan is only £9. If I bought clothes for this price on the high street the quality would be dubious but with Vertbaudet I am always happy with the quality of the items I buy.

The flared skirt has a nice rounded shape to the base. It looks like quite a thick, wintery fabric but actually it is relatively light 100% cotton (which is handy because Lara hates wearing a heavy skirt). It has a zip fastening and is so easy for us to put on a wiggly toddler.

The short sleeved cardigan was a choice of mine designed with the skirt in mind. You can also buy it in pink and dark grey but the light grey seemed to go best with the skirt. I love the wide ribbed neckline and sleeves and the two big buttons at the top which let the cardi gently fall over Lara's belly. It has washed well (always a risk with a knitted item) and I think we will get a lot of use out of this item of clothing.

Both items are available in sizes from 2 to 14 years old.

I guess my only concern with this outfit is that Lara looks so smart that it feels like she should be off to school or to work when she is wearing it!
