Being the youngest of 4 girls does mean a variety of good and not so good things. One is, big people to show you the way. Another is lots of clothes handed down in a mix of styles. Another is NOTHING.NEW.EVER.
So this week Josie has struck out a bit. Firsat of all she has made the decision to go to school, making her the youngest Raymond to ever decide such a thing. I think she felt in need of a new challenge and was worried that, with all the big three off to school permanently in September, home would be a bit lonely. (And I might make her work harder!) Since the school Fran and Amelie have gone to as year 6’s is full, it looks like Josie may well end up going somewhere no one else from our family has been. Wow. No big sisters beating the path for her. Big stuff. (I’ll wibble about this some other time).
And her other show stealer was nobbling the review clothing item from me&i, a Swedish clothing company ‘for cool people’. She was very pleased to get to choose an item and went for the Angel Blouse, a cute khaki number with an angel on the front and a pair of wings on the back.
Excuse the fact I appear to have taken a photo of her with tulips growing out of her ears. I’m sure it didn’t look like that at the time!
Josie took a little while to get used to the sleeve length as it’s 3/4 and elastic and she gets a bit sensory about these things, but she loves the design and the fact that it is pretty and cute but combined with a colour that feels modern and rough and tumble. She decided it is not an under a coat dress but perfect for cool floating about and over jeans or leggings. (I can’t get my girls to wear skirts).
I loved the feel of the fabric, which is a nice t-shirt feel but really cotton-y and it washes well, is fit to wear after without ironing (very important, irons are for Hama Beads) and the logo stayed nice.
Over all, a very cute top and the rest of the range looks quirky and fun too. You can also host me&i adult and child clothing parties, which might be worth looking into if you have local friends (which I don’t think I do but actually these days I probably almost do do!)
Disclosure: we were sent one top from the me&i range for the purpose of this review.
