Spring Greens - Next Kid's Clothing

We've reached that stage where my daughter is adamant she'll choose her own clothes and outfits, and the constant battle that ensues with her not wanting to dress like a little girl, and me not wanting her to dress like an adult just yet.

It's not often now that we agree on an outfit so when we do it's cause for celebration.

On a recent shopping trip we popped into Next and we both fell in love with their new season's kids section.  There's so many different looks to choose from and for Ruby who has now taken a firm stand against 'wishy washy pastels' the bright bold colours were really refreshing.

I love the vibrant greens she picked out and this outfit is a winner for us both.


The pretty cardigan with it's crocheted daisies is perfect for chillier spring days.  

Daisy cardi available in white, yellow or green £13-19

The skirt has a fun mini pom pom trim around the hem, and is a riot of colour meaning we can mix and match it with navy, cerise pinks, purple, yellow or orange.  

Flippy Skirt £10-16

Is there anything that heralds the arrival of warmer weather better than the sight of little toes? These sandals have a lovely retro feel with their cutout detail and Ruby says their really comfortable - personally I feel the ankle strap is too short, it only does up on her on it's last hole and pushes her foot forward a little too far.

Sandals, available in green, white or pink £12-15


Take a look at the Good Life, Bright as Day and Hello Spring collections which are my favourite - I've already got my eye on quite a few other pieces!

Linking up with Wednesday's Wardrobe.

  1. Minxy picks her own clothes but generally she opts for shorts in the snow and jumpers in the summer! She loves floral prints (as do I) so this outfit is lovely x

  9. Her outfit is lovely. My daughter is at the stage where she wants to choose her own outfits and it's leading to a few battle of wills. I'd be happy for her to wear this, it is bright and colourful without being too grown up.
