London Chic for Kids: a Summer Wedding

Summer is just round the corner. 

This can only mean one thing: 
wedding season is here. 

 As much as I may enjoy buying pretty things for me, 
I can safely say I adore to shop 
beautiful occasion wear for the little ones.  

And these three London-based brands 
made me wish their children's ranges 
came in adult sizes too. 

A Mum in London

Wedding at the Manor 
Marie-Chantal 

Created by mum {of five} Marie Chantal of Greece,
the brand is renowned for the use of premium materials
and for its classic designs.

Wear Where?: the 'bon chic, bon genre' style
is ideal for official ceremonies and ultra chic weddings.

Top picks: suit jackets for boys
and princessy dresses for girls.

Ouch factor: pricey, of course,
but you can always find nice deals on their website.

A Mum in London

Wedding in the Countryside
Liberty London

London's prestigious store {running since 1875}
recently launched its own children's range,
made with 100% Liberty print fabrics.

Wear Where?: Although limited and mostly for girls,
Liberty's kids clothes are ideal
for semi-formal occasions and parties.

Top picks: floral dresses for baby girls
and Liberty print shirts for boys.

Ouch Factor: again, not the most economical solution,
but totally worth it for the timeless designs and quality.


Wedding on the Beach 
The Little White Company 

When the White Company's founder {and mum of four} 
gave birth to her first child, 
she thought of creating a stylish children's range, 
made from beautiful fabrics. 

Wear Where?: The simple, elegant nautical designs
can be worn everywhere & everyday,
even on formal occasions if styled appropriately.

Top picks: all white broderie dresses for girls,
chino shorts and nautical jumpers for boys.

Ouch Factor: excellent value for money
for garments that stand the test of time.




Marie-Chantal: Boy Jacket £195, Jeans £89, Shirt £59 / Sequin Dress £125 / Jacquard Dress £150.  
Liberty London: Party dress, £140.
The Little White Company: Jumper £30, Chino Shorts £24.

  1. I love love love that Liberty dress.... it's so pretty, and the fabric looks gorgeous. I think there are times when you can splash out on that one special outfit! :o)

    1. I agree, when it's for special occasions, splashing out is permitted! :)

  2. Oh wow, these gorgeous wedding outfits are so much more chic than the brown and yellow trouser suits I was dressed in during the 1970s. I'm almost offended my mother didn't think to future proof my wedding outfits!

    1. Haha, this made me laugh! On a second thought, I guess the brown & yellow trousers were very fashionable in the '70s :)
