My new favourite hobby has become taking outfit pictures of Amelia, she just has so many faces and expressions I just can’t document them quick enough, but one thing that helps me take so many photos is when we get sent such gorgeous clothing to photograph her in and this post is Amelia’s first official OOTW outfit of the week fashion post on my blog and it’s featuring this gorgeous Ellie Mouse Nautical Jersey/woven Dress* £22.99-£24.99 avaliable in sizes 3-6 months up to 5-6 years! The packaging was personalised and such a lovely personal touch! I love brands that go the extra mile as even though this wasn’t for me, It was still packaged with love – not that Amelia noticed, but I did!
The Essential One has launched their new SS17 and we were delighted to get this gorgeous Ellie Mouse Dress through the post. I usually favour putting Amelia in baby grows, as we mentioned in our 4 month update, Amelia is quite long for her age so we’re often in bigger sizes to accommodate her length but it’s too big for her around her tummy and neck area and we find it very hard to find a good pair of plain tights to wear under it, so I worry her legs will get cold unless we rock some thigh high white socks haha.
The Ellie Mouse Dress is the perfect length for us, we’re in a size 6-9 and as you can see, it’s actually slightly too big around her arms and nice and long on her so I was actually really happy having her in this size despite it being a little big for her at the moment. I can’t wait now that the weather is getting warmer, I feel more comfortable having her in a dress like this with maybe a little cardigan on.
The quality of the dress is just amazing. I absolutely adore the print, the contrast of the pink and white stripes which is cute and girly, followed by the gorgeous navy bow and busy striking print at the bottom! I’m a also happy to introduce Ellie the mouse into our home as we are bombarded with cat prints (What? I like cats?!) that I’m always drawn too so it’s nice having the mouse for a change haha! They have so many gorgeous collections I just know we are going to have lots of The Essential One in our wardrobe!
I hope you enjoy Amelia’s OOTW! – Have you taken a peek on The Essential One?
