We're big fans of Tesco children's wear and both Bud and Little Miss regularly wear their clothes. I especially like their boys range which is often more bright and colourful than other stores on the high street. I decided that I would like an outfit for the children to wear on Christmas Day. We spend our day between both sets of our parents' homes so we need festive, but comfortable clothes to wear when we're eating our Christmas dinner and getting down on the floor to play with new toys.
First of all I started to look for an outfit for Bud. I'd actually been in Tesco a couple of days before and spotted some fab Christmas jumpers and I really loved the idea of getting one for Bud to wear. F&F have a few different styles but the blue reindeer jumper took my eye and, as Bud really suits this colour, it was an easy choice. I think he might wear this for a couple of parties in the run up to the big day too, to ensure he gets enough wear from it. I decided not to go for his usual jeans and spotted these relaxed, grey chinos that would look perfect with the blue sweater. The three pack of long sleeved t-shirts is perfect for the winter months and I really liked the muted palette of grey, khaki and burgundy.
When my thoughts turned to Little Miss, the first decision I had to make was what style of clothes to go for. F&F have a gorgeous range of party dresses which I looked at but I was grabbed by this beautiful two piece outfit made up of a pale pink cotton blouse and beige tweed shorts. I love the shorts over tights look on little girls and, as Little Miss is likely to be walking properly by Christmas, I thought this would allow her to move around freely and comfortably. The shorts have a gold shimmery thread running through the fabric which offers a touch of shimmer and sparkle for Christmas Day. I found this gorgeous fur gilet which will keep her snug and warm and matches the outfit really well too, and some tights which co-ordinate too. We were one pound short of our £50 voucher so I added this bargain long sleeved vest which has 'I Heart Santa' written all over it - a fun festive layer for Christmas day.
We had a big trying on session today and the clothes look wonderful. Bud was very excited by his Reindeer jumper and Little Miss looked so sweet in her outfit. The fur gilet is beautifully soft and finished off the outfit perfectly. I'm so impressed with both outfits and amazed to buy all of these items for a smudge over £50. All of the items are the excellent quality I am accustomed to when purchasing from F&F at Tesco. The only problem I had was trying to get Bud to take off the reindeer sweater.
This is our entry into the F&F Tesco Children's Party Wear Competition. We received a £50 voucher to put together outfits for the children's Christmas party. One winner will receive a £200 voucher to spend on the F&F range.
