It was lunchtime. It was cold and damp. So what I really needed were meatballs from Leon (honestly, I did). It just so happened that my route took me past Gap, where they have a rather splendid offer on skinny jeans for big and little girls (currently reduced to £30 and £15 respectively – buy online here).
C and I now have matching pink skinnies. She would like me to reassure you that we will be dressing them down with grey or navy jumpers (I find mine in Uniqlo, COS and J Crew), a grey tee, or a jaunty breton top, and flats (C is putting in a bid for navy Converse trainers). And maybe not wearing them on the same day. Maybe. (I make no promises.)
And who could possibly resist this little top from H&M Kids? (Not that I’m suggesting you twin it with aforementioned pink skinnies – unless, of course, you are really thinking pink). At a snippety-snip £3.99 and available in sizes from 1 and 1/2 – 8 years – get thee to H&M and buy one for your little Valentine.
Available in stores and online at H&M
