My Girl Grows Up And I Weep

As a blogger you get the chance to review all sorts of things. Which is amazing. But as soon as I knew I was going to get some school uniform from Matalan for my girl to try out before she starts for the first time in September. I knew? There would be many weeps. And there were. Not from her mind. She can't wait to go! 



She has been in uniform for the past year at pre-school so it wasn't a total shock to the system but this time? It just felt more real. We chose some basic white Matalan cotton polo shirts, that have little flowers embroidered on which are super cute. When she starts reception August will only just have finished. So we opted for some white socks with red ribbon on which she loved (and I fear may well be worn a lot before September starts!).



I also chose pleated teflon grey skirts which were great value in a pack of two. Then the most ADORABLE pinafore dresses which will look amazing with her school jumper and cardigan. I prepared for the Autumn with some navy blue and grey wooly tights. I got six pairs! As she gets through tights like there is no tomorrow. I brought in a size larger as there is nothing worse than a gusset round your knees!


To accompany the uniform, and to make my girl feel a little more special I will be using some fab customed made labels that came from Petit Fernand. The value pack came with labels for me to iron onto the uniform, as well as stick on labels for shoes, felts, books and anything else that tickles your fancy! I chose a pink and purple theme with a little fairy logo. It's perfect as she can't quite read yet but will be able to recognise her very own little fairy! Check out other logos over on Petit Fernand here.


The Matalan uniform fitted really well and we have used some stuff from there in the past year and it washed brilliantly. It can go in the dryer which quite frankly is the dream! If you are looking for some good value uniform that will fit your little munch really well as they start this education journey (SOB) then pop into your local store or visit the online store here.
