Taking 'Our Kid' on the School Run

It is a well known fact I generally look a hot mess on the school run. If I could wear pyjamas? I ruddy would. I wear clothes as close to them as humanly possible. However. My children? I always ensure they look as lovely as humanly possible. You may say I look like I've just rolled out of bed and doused myself in dry shampoo. But my kids? Always scrub up nicely. The girls is no problem. As she is in full school uniform (oh the weeps) but the boy? I've had to up his fashion game from scruffy jeans and T-Shirt So we turned to online children's fashion store 'Our Kid' to help us out.

Set up by three lovely Mums in Chorlton, Our Kid is an online kids company selling British designed clothes for children age 0-4. Their ranges are fun and a bit different from the bog standard things you find in your average shop. For my boy I opted for the bright colours of 'Maxmorra'. Not only did they look ace on the school run as they really stood out on the grimmest of rainy days but the lovely little outfit had dragons on. One of his ALL TIME favourite things. Let's pretend him roaring all the way to school wasn't a smidge annoying.


As it was a bit chilly along with his wellies (standard school run shoes) I popped on a lovely 'Boys and Girls' jumper also from the site. It was lovely and thick and hell we didn't even need to put on a coat! My boy loved is Our Kid clothes and I was fairly relieved no-one could see the fact I looked a hot mess as they were too busy looking at him.


Now for the best bit. The lovely people at Our Kid are offering you the chance to win £50 to spend in their online store and even better than that there is a super online discount code at the till worth 10% just type in brummymummyof2. Visit the site here. To enter the competition do any or all of the below! Good Luck Babs!

We were gifted these snazzy clothes for the purpose of a review. But they are super beaut.
