As regular readers will know by now we are big fans of hip Australian label Baobab, between my four children we have quite a nice collection of Baobab gear already and I can’t help but add to it every season. We love the super soft and safe organic fabrics and we can’t get enough of the awesome cuts and cool looks created by designer Belinda. The brand new Baboab Autumn/Winter range has just hit stores across Australia and boy it’s a winner, these are some of the styles to look out for:
This divine Baobab Chambray Shift Dress ($48.95, size 2-10) would have to be my top pick for the season. The classic blue denim is extremely easy to mix and match with any colour in your wardrobe and the comfortable, loose fit is perfect for busy little bees like my girls. If your daughter is always collecting treasures she will no doubt love the big pockets and how stylish is the plaited belt? Team it up with leggings and ballet flats or sneakers for that in between weather and wear it with tights and boots for a warm winter look.
Another girls favourite is the Baobab Lovebirds Top ($41.95, size 2-10), I knew our little miss 5 would adore the pretty flared sleeves and it looks very sweet on her. The girls range of tunics, tops, dresses and pants are designed to be worn together but you can easily pair them up with garments you already have too as they’re very versatile. From experience the sizing is nice and generous, so it is comfortable to wear and you gets lots of wear out of your clothes.
For the boys there is plenty of spunky gear to choose from too, I put my money on the Teal Hoodie and Track Pants as a comfy winter favourite (or maybe the black/grey combination, I can’t choose). It’s the perfect outfit for when you come out of school or for a chilly weekend day: soft, cosy and comfortable with plenty of room to run, play, jump, climb, lounge and relax in, just what kids like doing most.
For the past couple of seasons Baobab has released a funky unisex jean and we’ve bought (and enjoyed) it every time, the jeans have gone from our son to his twin sister and now they’re being worn by miss 3 (great investment for a big family like ours!). I am loving the look of this year’s Unisex Pale Washed Harem Jean ($48.95, size 2-6) so I might have to add it to our Winter wardrobe, they’ll get lots of enjoyment out of it.
The Baobab baby collection is full of gorgeous pieces in the coolest prints and colours, many of the designs are unisex which is a real bonus if you want to hand them down to younger siblings. I personally love a pop of red at winter time and can just picture these cheerful Baobab Red Baby Jean ($41.95, size 0 months – 1 year) on our youngest daughter, who said you have to dress grey and dreary like the weather?
