This year is an exciting year for us as Amelie will be starting school and will be getting her first school uniform. She is at pre-school already so we have had our many uniforms over the last two years, but her first uniform is exciting for us both.
As I have found over the last couple of years with Amelie at pre-school, kids and Amelie can be very particular and do funny things with and in their uniforms.
I’m so excited to be working with M&S on their Life Isn’t Uniform campaign which aims to bring together all of the funny moments and mishaps kids have with their uniforms as they know for kids and parents, life isn’t uniform.
I had a wonderful day in London a few weeks ago filming some of our ‘life isn’t uniform moments‘ and in M&S uniform here are some of the funny things Amelie has done or does in her current uniform.
Our gift giver
Amelie is our gift giver, she is very caring and always thinks about others and what she can give them.
Whenever she comes home from pre-school she brings someone a gift, recently we have had stones from the playground for Nanny and Grandad, a full family picture for Daddy and cards for me. Whenever her cousin comes to play she always leaves our house with a present. It can be anything she wants, Amelie and her cousin decide on a gift and they leave with it. My sister gives me a bag of our things every week and it really makes me laugh at how many gifts Amelie gives her.
Playing, whatever, whenever
The pink dress of dreams
Amelie absolutely loves this summer school dress and since we bought it, for this very blog post she always requests to wear it. When she gets home from pre-school she runs into her room or our utility room finds this dress and says ‘it’s really hot Mummy, I need to wear my Summer school dress’. She even wanted to wear it to a birthday party last weekend!
It’s the heart zip that makes it so special for her I think, she’s always saying how pretty it is!
We picked up some essentials from M&S for her and I have been so impressed with their range of school clothes and how nice everything was that we ordered.
The essentials we ordered were; a Grey pinafore (£10.00) which felt super soft and looked really smart with the White polo top (pack of two) £7.00 underneath. Over this Amelie wore one of M&S’s super soft cotton Red cardigans (£9.00) and finished the look with some ballet shoes (£20.00). Finally, we bought a girls pleated gingham Summer dress for £9.00.
