Bread and Jam

I have loved Bread and Jam dresses for what seems like ages, long before I had my baby girl and before any of my friends had had babies. But even so I was so taken by them I kept trying to think of reasons I could buy myself one just because they are quite simply so beautiful! I saw them at the country living fair a few years ago and remembered thinking how really there just weren't anyother dresses like them for little girls - I have to say I think generally the highstreet seems to be all too in love with the sugary princessy style look for girls (this is so not my mischievious Delilah!) Anyway, I was lucky enough to win tickets to go to the gala night for the Country Living Spring Fair this year, and I knew the one thing I would have to buy is one of these beautiful dresses. Just look at their gorgeous fabrics.......



I love the way that they're meant to be worn all the time, not saved for special occasions or a particular season - Delilah can run around in the summer being perfectly cool, and layer with a long sleeve top, chunky tights and a cardi in the winter months (or spring it would seem). I love them so much! This is the design I went for in the end, the Summer Hill Dress. The dress start at age 2, so I still have a bit of time before Delilah will fit in it properly, but until then I'll just admire it hanging in the wardrobe :)
