And then it was time again to set the alarms in the morning, pull out the uniforms, prep the lunch boxes and think of a Show & Tell topic for today, Term 3 is here! Yesterday was an absolutely lovely sunny winter day so we finished our school holidays with a relaxing afternoon at the Adelaide Botanic Gardens. You can easily spend a few hours walking the gardens while the kids burn off some energy running the grass fields, explore the many different plants and flowers, climbs the trees, feed the birds and much more. Of course we brought our beloved Joolz ride along, just in case little legs got tired from all the fun. We ended the day with ice-cream for everyone so there were happy faces all around.

Tea Collection

A few weeks ago I shopped up a storm and picked up a big pile of gorgeous Tea Collection pieces for our little Sybbie at Where Did You Get That?. Sybil now has some lovely new outfits AND the store’s shelves were cleared for all the winter arrivals, it’s a win for both of us. I absolutely love Tea Collection so I buy several garments for my girls every season and looking at the new ‘Destination Germany’ collection I’ll have to do some more shopping soon:

Tea Collection

Rain or shine, summer or winter, anyone who knows my daughters will know that my girls always wear dresses. Between our three little ladies we have gathered quite the collection and wherever we go people comment on their lovely frocks. Of course they’re all gorgeous but is obvious that their Tea Collection dresses are a real standout and after seeing the latest Daily Tea arrivals at Where Did You Get That? I think we may have to get a few more coat hangers:

Daily Tea Dress

So what are my hot picks for the upcoming season? I have definitely got my eye on this super sweet Cherry Blossom Layer Dress ($34.95), the blue and pink is so fresh and I love the layered look. Wear this dress with a great pair of legging and sneakers or ballet flats or even tights and boots, a hip combi to brighten up the chilly days.

Daily Tea HummingbirdMy other favourite is the Hummingbird Wrap Dress ($34.95), a pretty red number inspired by the beauty of China just like the rest of this amazing collection. The wrap dress is one of Daily Tea’s signature designs with new prints, colours and patterns being released every season. It is an excellent fit for girls with a slimmer frame (like our miss 5)thanks to the cross over neckline and waist detail, we have at least 9 wrap dresses like this on rotation.

Putting together a beautiful Daily Tea outfit is really easy as the collection contains a fantastic selection of leggings and pants in a rainbow of colours to team up with the dresses and tops. You will find you are mixing and matching all the time and with just a few pieces you can create different looks. I often choose Daily Tea when I want my girls to wear similar colours and styles without looking identical (ideal for family photos!).

Over the past five years I have purchased many Daily Tea garments for all of our children and I can not speak highly enough of the excellent fit, high quality materials, durability and easy wash and wear. Our youngest daughter is currently wearing dresses that have been worn by her two sisters before her and they still look fantastic. Tea Collection is already very well priced and when you consider the hand me downs it’s an even bigger bargain.

If you purchase any item from the new Where Did You Get That? Autumn/Winter 2014 category you will receive FREE shipping Australia wide, simply enter the code ‘THAT-WINTER’ at checkout. Offer ends February 14, 2014.

The twins always get terribly excited when it is someone’s birthday, they just love receiving an invitation in the mail and practising their ‘Happy Buffay’ wishes. I love birthdays too and this week I am joining in the birthday celebrations at Whimsy Child. Don’t worry, there is no limit to the number of guests and you can come too! Just make sure you like the Whimsy Child Facebook page so you don’t miss the awesome birthday promotions and specials.

Of course a party isn’t a party without a party outfit and now is a brilliant time to pick up some new outfits with this exclusive offer for Hip little one readers: Get 25% off storewide at Whimsy Child, simply enter the code HL1-25 at checkout. This fantastic offer ends May 2, 2012. All orders over $50 will receive a free scratchie with great prizes to be won and every order placed during the birthday sale period will go in the draw to win a $100 Whimsy Child shopping spree, you have to agree this all sounds like a fabulous birthday party!

I had a hard time picking favourites because this whole store is filled with far from ordinary fashion for kids, exactly the way I like it. As if 25% off isn’t awesome enough the code is also valid on sale items which means even bigger bargains. If you love Daily Tea as much as I do you’re in luck as there are some gorgeous designs available and many styles are discounted already. This beautiful Daily Tea Talavera Dress is reduced to $22.40 and with the discount code it can be yours for just $16.80!

Whimsy Child also stocks Shampoodle, a funky label that always fits in with the latest street trends. I picked up the very stylish Shampoodle Rosa Jeans for my oldest daughter but if you want some too you have to be quick, you probably noticed coloured jeans are totally in right now so they are selling out fast. I also love the Organic Denim Liverpool Shirt, it looks comfortable and very versatile and priced at just $22.13 it is a real steal.

With the chilly Winter season on our doorstep you’ll have to stock up on comfy outfits for relaxing, snuggly days in and these cool Munster Crash Landed Pants (size 1-10) are perfect for just that.

They will soon become a big favourite, guaranteed.
