Who doesn’t love a frilly tutu skirt for festive frolics? – what’s not to love?! So how delighted were we when online children’s wear boutique Little Beau Chic got in touch offering to send us this beautiful Aya Naya (RRP £25) charcoal grey number, complete with satin waistband, to see Allegra through the party season!
Please ignore the slightly scary/freaky smile going on here, it’s proving almost impossible to take a photo of my girl at the moment that is not blurry (not quite grasped the concept of waiting a few moments for mummy to actually take the picture before moving!) or comes complete with overly cheesy cheesy-grin!
Anyway, back to the skirt…
Super girly and gorgeously pretty, but in an edgier colour than your average tutu, we just loved this skirt, which is 100% polyester (not normally my fabric of choice, but the skirt is really lovely) and…. MACHINE WASHABLE!! – huge thumbs up on that front! We also really loved the pom-pom detailing at the front of the skirt, which is not so easy to see in my pics, so here’s a shot of the skirt solo so you can see it clearly:
Here’s some more pics of Allegra doing her ballet thang in the skirt, again apologies for the rather rubbish pics, but honestly it’s almost impossible for me to take a set of decent photos of her at the moment!
What I love about this skirt is that it is pretty enough for party-wear but could easily be worn for a smart/casual everyday outfit when paired with leggings and a jumper. Allegra wore it with a creamy fine knit jumper with silver sparkly thread detail from H&M and pale pink woolly tights. She loved it!
We had the skirt in size 4 years and Allegra is a few months shy of turning 3, but she is pretty tall and generally wears aged 3-4 years, sometimes 4-5 years, so we opted for a bigger size and it fitted perfectly with some room to grow, so she’ll get a good bit of wear out of it, which is great.
Little Beau Chic only launched a mere 3 months ago and was founded by Hertfordshire-based husband and wife team Julia and Marc Obrart. Their two children under 5 are the inspiration for their range of stylish yet affordable clothes that are that little bit different from what you’d find on the average high-street. Prices range from £10 for accessories and t-shirts through to £60 for Guess dresses and brands they stock include Blue Seven, Name It, and Rockabye Baby through to the more luxury end of the market that includes Guess and Aya Naya. I only wish they did clothes for adults!! Sadly it’s just fashion savvy boys and girls from 0-8 years!
PLUS!!! Little Beau Chic is pledging 10% of all profits to the highly-regarded children’s charity Kids Company, which provides practical, emotional, and educational support to vulnerable inner-city children: so you can shop and make a difference this Christmas!
Disclosure: we were sent the grey Aya Naya tutu skirt for free for the purposes of this review, but all opinions are honest and our own.
