I’ve always loved winter fashion. I adore getting wrapped up in furry coats and ankle boots, to head out into the crisp air feeling lovely and warm. Since I now have two girls whose wardrobes I needto think about, winter clothes shopping has never been more fun! The eldest of my two girls is becoming more and more aware of what she likes, so shopping for this little fashionista has to be done right.

One of our favourite places to shop is River Island, mainly because they have the cutest of items that our girls love, but also because their wears don’t break the bank. I’m often caught perusing their website for new outfits, ready for the next season!

Must have winter wears –

There are a few essential items on our girls’ winter wears list, that they just cannot get through the cold season without. As we usually have a winter beach break, I like to make sure that our they’re as snug as can be!

Parka coat –

I’ve always love parka coats, so it goes without saying that they’re the go-to coat for our girls. They’re just so warm and cosy, heading out for winter walks wrapped up in a parka makes for the perfect jaunt!


Wool hat –

I’m more of a flat cap girl myself, but where our children are concerned it’s woollen hats all the way. I love the beanie style hats, especially on our youngest. They look good and keep them warm at the same time. Pom-poms or animal ears are essential for added cuteness!


Boots –

Boots are an absolute must during winter. As an outdoorsy family our girls get so much use out of their wellies, but as true mini style queens they love to wear their smart boots when we head out!



Hooded jackets –

Winter just wouldn’t be the same without a hoodie. The girls and I love our hooded jackets, they’re super cosy and make them look incredibly cute!



What are your children’s essential winter wears?
