I’m a big fan of clothes from Nutmeg at Morrisons. There is something about their range that catches my eye each time I go shopping. Which had this been a high street brand it might have been bad for my bank balance, however, with clothes starting at just £2.00 I can treat the children to a new top or something without worrying that I am blowing my weekly shopping budget.
A couple of weeks ago myself and the children were invited down to London to see the new Autumn/Winter range from Nutmeg, something I was especially excited to see. As we sat on the train I looked at what Roo had dressed in that morning and suddenly realised that she was wearing clothes from last years Nutmeg Autumn/Winter collection, which goes to show how great they last and that Roo still loves the range.
As Roo and I approached the older girls clothing selection I caught sight of a floral dress hung up with a pink cardigan and knew automatically that Roo would love it.
Looking through the selection they have brought out some updated versions of key items from last year such as the knitted dress with tights and long black sleeved top (both of which Roo has at home). Alongside some new and fabulous items including a faux leather biker style jacket, fluffy gilet and beautiful monochrome party dress.
As I suspected Roo loved the Liberty floral dress paired with the pink cardigan. I usually worry about buying dressed for Roo as they are usually party style, however, the Liberty dress looks great on its own for a party or special meal but paired with a cardigan it looks great for every day wear.
Tigger is just making the transition from younger boys clothes to older boys and as just five going on six years old, I worry that the styles will be too old for him and that he might not want to wear them. The Nutmeg range, however, has funky designed tops that match his interests and personality too.
I especially loved the space-inspired collection with a range of tops with fun logos on, paired with a pair of jeans and possibly the new silver-grey raincoat he would look so cute.
Tigger spotted a fabulous long-sleeved top that he adored ‘my cape is invisible’ emblazoned on the front, which when you looked at the back there was a cape hidden inside a pocket which can be pulled out whenever you need to be a superhero – too cute!
Whilst we had left Piglet at home with Daddy for the day we couldn’t forget her when it came to looking at the new Nutmeg range. She is now getting to the age where sleepsuits and all-in-ones are only worn at bedtime and it’s time to bring out the dresses, tights and cosy cardigans (I do love dressing little girls).
The younger girl range is filled with navy blues and deep pinks this year and I have to admit to loving almost every item. I especially loved the knitted dresses paired with matching tights. The navy pinafore dress was lovely too, which comes with a top, however, you could easily mix and match with different coloured tops depending on how colourful you were feeling that day.
As I don’t have any little boys I’d love for you to pop over to the lovely Jaime at The Olivers Madhouse who has showcased what was on offer for younger boys.
Boo Roo and Tigger Too’s thoughts…
As a mum the three things I love about the Nutmeg range is:
- Quality – The clothes are comfortable for the children to wear, they wear well (outstanding many of the leading brands) and wash beautifully
- Price – The most expensive item I could see in the new Nutmeg AW16 range was priced at £18, which when you think that children need 3-4 tops and trousers per season it’s not going to cost me a fortune to kit out their wardrobes
- Design – Whilst my children are still at the age where I am able to choose and buy their clothes, they love the designs available from Nutmeg and are happy to wear them.
Make sure you look out for the Nutmeg AW16 range available in stores from September
I’ll leave you with Roo and Tigger’s favourite from the preview…
