I love supporting independent stores and brands, partly I guess because I have my own and know the work that goes into them but also because I like seeing new things spring up and I’m inspired by the creativity. I first discovered kidswear brand, Milk and Biscuits a few years ago at a trade show I was visiting while looking for brands to stock at Little and Fierce Kids. I loved the classic simplicity of the collection that still managed to have a contemporary and stylish look. There’s a good mix of prints and staples in muted colours.
When they asked me to review something from their AW collection I jumped at the chance. A lot of independent kidswear brands only go up to age 5 and although my littlest girl is five she’s actually in age 7-8 clothes! Luckily for us Milk and Biscuits go up to 9-10 so even my biggest girl could wear them.
I chose this versatile pinafore dress..
We are big fans of pinafores and dungarees, and love how you can change them up to create all sorts of outfits. This particular dress has been worn with tights of various colours, leggings, long sleeve tops, short sleeve tops, boots and trainers. In my opinion having wardrobe staples such as this dress is key for children’s wardrobes. We’re not fans of fussy clothes that can only be worn occasionally, those end up at the back of the drawers never to be worn. Kids clothes need to work for them and be fun and practical while also being effortlessly stylish, and I think Milk and Biscuits do this really well.
E wears the dress with a plain long sleeve top, glittery tights, silver trainers and a glitter star headband.
Another way to style this dress..
My littlest girl has a particular love for unicorns, fun prints and of course her favourite colour of all, yellow, so this kind of outfit is right up her street.
Pricing wise Milk and Biscuits are an independent brand so you shouldn’t be expecting to pay high street prices, however you get ethically produced and high quality kids clothing that you won’t see on every other child. I’m excited to share with you a few sneak peeks of this seasons collection which is a collaboration with illustrator Lucy Kirk and as you can see it’s inspired by the circus.

A big thanks to Milk and Biscuits for sending us this dress, as always all views are our own.
