Review: We Love Squirrels SS13 Outfit

When we were offered the chance to review an outfit by Angela from the We Love Squirrels SS13 range, we were very excited!  Meg absolutely loves clothes, especially putting her own outfits together (which is another thing entirely!) so I knew she would be especially pleased when the package arrived for her.

We Love Squirrels is an online children's clothing and baby gifts boutique.  They specialise in British and Scandinavian designers and lots of their items are organic and Fairtrade.

It was recently featured as number 2 in a Guardian article on the top 10 ethical places to buy children's clothes too which is brilliant!

Angela chose a Boys&Girls A Line Dress for Meg and it is simply gorgeous.  It has apricot and cream stripes and is a maxi dress fit made of organic cotton.  Super soft to the touch.  It retails at £22.

It's perfect for summer weather and was one of Meg's favourite dresses to wear whilst we were on holiday.


I loved the style of it, the vest fit at the top which meant there were no straps to constantly fall down (a pet hate of mine) and the flowing loose fit at the bottom meant that Meg could still run around and get into mischief with ease.  Unfortunately she isn't the kind of girl who will sit nicely and not roll around on the floor creating havoc so it's nice to have a dress that can accommodate that!

It has also washed really well, keeping it's shape and soft texture which I liked.  The thing about kids clothing (well, my kids anyway!) is that they only get one wear out of an item before it needs to be washed so their clothes do take a fair beating.  It has been washed three times since we were sent it and is still perfect.


I think the price is quite reasonable considering the wear Meg will get out of it.  The style means that we will be able to team it with leggings when it starts to get a bit short which is great.  

It's even better value if you take advantage of the 50% sale on at the moment and snap it up for £11!  
The same dress in Jade is also in the sale which I am definitely planning to buy for Meg.

Their website is really easy and simple to use and they feature a constantly growing collection of clothing ranges.

Overall, I was really impressed with the quality and fit of this dress and I would certainly recommend We Love Squirrels.  You can find Angela on Twitter @welovesquirrels
