This week we had a family day together, and whilst we had the camera with us for beach snaps I thought I might as well do an outfit too! I’ve had this dress for a few months as I was originally going to wear it to Athena’s christening in November but didn’t, but its one of my favourites, and is the only red thing I own! I was wearing a cardi when we left the house, but that soon got abandoned and stayed shoved under the pram for the rest of the day! Perhaps this is spring…?
Dress: Dorothy Perkins. Leggings: M&S (seriously the best quality leggings out there). Shoes: Chatham Marine (see this post). Necklace: Gumigem.
The Heart necklace is actually a cleverly disguised teether for Athena. It’s made of silicone and is completely safe for babies to chomp on. It comes on a long cord with a breakaway clasp, so it makes a nice change to be able to wear a necklace again without having to yank it out of pudgy little hands (which only makes her want it more!) There are loads of designs to choose from, along with bracelets and other teething products. Everything comes in a little reusable pouch so you can keep them safely stored away (for the next baby, haha!) As you can see it’s a hit with Athena, and the plus point is that because it’s attached she can’t fling it on the floor which seems to be her absolute favourite thing ever!
I’ve been having a look a the other bits available on the Gumigem website and love the ‘bubba bag’ which is a mini bag filled with chewable versions of everything Athena likes to empty out of my bag (so keys, cards etc). I also love the ‘dad tags’ which are dog tags for so that dads can share the teething action (perfect for baby wearing daddies!)
I was sent this heart pendant from Gumigem and as always the opinions and words in this blog post are all mine!
