Joe is very lucky to have some very posh clothes in his wardrobe, mainly due to his grandparents being unable to resist buying him fancy togs from John Lewis. Every few weeks they come round, arms laden with cute outfits for Joe to wear- many items get chocolate on within three seconds flat but they love to buy him posh clothes nonetheless. Joe also has a large collection of one of a kind handmade clothes in his wardrobe courtesy of his very talented Nanny who is a bit of an expert when it comes to knitting.
I’m in to my fashion bloggers and follow a lot of plus size bloggers on instagram, one of the posts many of them do is #OOTD (outfit of the day) where they photograph themselves wearing their well thought out outfits and explain where they got the items from, why they chose them etc.
Being as I buy an item of new clothing about once every thousand years for myself it would be useless me doing #OOTD posts about my style but I thought it would be cute to do a few #OOTD posts on Instagram for Joe’s outfits so everyone can appreciate how cool he looks in his fancy clothes (before they get destroyed by toddlerdom). He often gets compliments on his outfits when we are out and about- obviously it helps that he’s amazingly handsome (biased? moi?) and would look cute in a plastic bag- but a lot of it is to do with granny and grandpa’s shopping addiction and Nanny’s knitting needles.
Saying that though, many of Joe’s clothes are second or even third hand from very generous friends and family, from supermarkets or in sales, and some of the items I love best have come from previously loving homes.
Here’s the #OOTD pictures I took last week- let me know if you like the posts!
