Tommy & Lottie – a Review

Hey friends,

I saw an opportunityto do a review for a new brand &  I must admit I’d never heard of Tommy & Lottie before, that’s because they’re really new set up in 2014!  A quick search to their website & afew e-mails back & forth from the owner & I very quickly got a feeling for what they’re all about.

The owner Katie offered me a choice of any of the t-shirts on the website (how lovely is it to have a choice!) I very quickly fell in love with the fairground range.

I liked all of the designs & really liked that they’re all really simple white background but with a striking Scandinavian inspired design on the front!

I asked for the dodgem t-shirt in Master H’s age since I haven’t done a review with him before, but unfortunately they don’t do it in his size yet (he’s now 4).  So I opted for the helter skelter design for 18-24 months & you’ve got Little Miss instead!

I was impressed that the t-shirt came wrapped in tissue paper & with the cutest little badger sticker on the envelope.  It really is the small things that add to a buying experience.

Secondly, I was happy to see poppers on the shoulders, it’s not always easy to get a wriggly toddler in their clothes so anything that helps is a win.

I did have to think about what I would team the tee with as Little Miss is quite a girly girl & this tee felt more rock star babe.  I popped her in jeans & put a tutu on top! But Master H didn’t mind rocking the fairground design & was quite happy running around in it.

I did find the tee slightly too long for her, but I just tucked it in & I know it will fit her for ages.

Here she is running around with her tee, topknot & jeans, I loved putting her in something I wouldn’t otherwise of thought of, I also turned up the sleeves for a bit of a girly ‘Grease’ style twist, I think she looks great!

I’m always up for shouting about brands who have an ethical background.  Tommmy & Lottie are passionate about how they produce their product “ethically and sustainably produced by using only the best quality and the softest 100% cotton and are designed and screen printed in Britain.” Made in GB always gets my vote too!

After reading more of the website I was really happy to see that Katie had set up her business after staying home with her kids, it really gave me hope for my future after I’m done with staying home with my own sweet kids.  I’m happy to support Mum’s who have started their own business.  I really like the warm but current feel of this new hot brand.

If you’re on the market for a really soft, beautifully designed tee this might be what you’re looking for & they would make a great gift too!  My only negative is that they don’t make them bigger so my boy could have had one too!
