The last week has been a bit of a rollercoaster; this time last week Isobel was looking forward to a four-night school trip this week. Then on Tuesday we noticed some spots on her torso…by Wednesday morning it was obvious she had chicken pox. How she managed to avoid it up until now baffles me, but I suppose it had to happen sooner or later! That threw the trip into doubt as the school said all the spots had to have dried up. Thankfully, she didn’t get too many, and only a couple on her face. Even so, I’m glad we took these photos at the same time as my Stylish Monday Mad for Plaid outfit!
After a nervous few days we made the decision that Isobel was well enough to go, and so I spent yesterday rushing around buying last minute essentials. (I had planned to post this yesterday, but it was too hectic!) She would have been so disappointed to miss out on all the fun activities. Of course I will miss her terribly, but I know that she’ll be having loads of fun 🙂 Something else that put a smile on her face was receiving this beautiful hedgehog print ruffle shirt from La Coqueta. Isobel adores hedgehogs and goes straight to them whenever I take her to the wildlife hospital where I volunteer.
La Coqueta is a brand of luxury kids clothing, catering for age range 0 months to 10 years. Everything is made in Spain to a very high standard, from the choice of cloth to the design and finish of every piece. The brand’s mission is to make “traditional, timeless fashion for children, that still has a chic and contemporary style“.
The Mara hedgehog shirt is made from a lightweight textured cotton, making it very comfortable (according to Isobel who is very fussy about these things!). It features cute wooden buttons, elasticated gathered sleeves and a ruffled collar. And of course, the hedgehog print is just adorable…I want one too! Isobel chose her grey leggings and contrasting mustard ankle boots to wear with the shirt. She helped herself to one of my bags to finish off the outfit!
