Imaginary caterpillars and cashmere cardigans

"cashmere cardigan child"

One of the biggest joys of our new home is that we have our very own garden.  We’ve wanted one for ages but have never found the right home with the right garden and now we have.  Yay!  So even thought it’s cold and the garden is overgrown we still get out there for short bursts.  Normally when Anya goes out there I make her wear a coat which she finds a bit restrictive for her outdoor adventures.  But recently she was sent this gorgeously soft cashmere cardigan which is oh so warm.  So this Sunday I let Anya wear that with a couple of tee’s under and play outside for a bit and she didn’t once complain of being cold.

I love the stylish touches on this grey cashmere cardi like the mother of pearl buttons that go down the side rather than the middle.  This cardigan is great for dressing up or down too.  Anya’s worn it before with a long dusty pink tutu to a birthday party but this Sunday we were having a relaxed day and a late brunch with some friends so we dressed it down with skinny jeans and some cool orange boots.  The cardigan is made by the French Oscar et Valentine who also make some beautiful baby clothes as well as classic cashmere pieces for boys.  Many of their styles are timeless and classic and come in an understated and very French colour palette.  For something a little edgier, try one of their slogan cashmere jumpers with words like ‘milk’ or ‘rock’ on them – they’re pretty cool too.

Anya spent her time outdoors looking for caterpillars and when she couldn’t find any she pretended they were there anyway and started to collect little leaves to feed them.  If you’ve already got a garden (or back yard as my readers across the pond call it) then you know what a magical place it is for a kid.  And to be able to spend even a little time outside in Winter is a real treat.  As long as the weather’s not crazy cold, I think Anya will be donning her very warm cashmere cardi and heading out there every weekend!

    Would also love to have a garden… But for now we only have a balcony where my daughter can ride her bike or roller skating – for her is fun because its outdoor space and kids love being outside 😉

      Any outside space is a treat for a kid. We have been dreaming of a garden for years and since Anya came along we have wished for it even more. Now we have it and we love it even though it needs a lot of attention. 🙂

    I adore wearing cashmere, and love that it usually last for a really long time. Dressing the kids in it is great too – I don’t think you can beat it for warmth and breathability. Gorgeous pics, she looks just lovely in the cardi x

      I know – cashmere is such a luxury but so practical too. In this house all the cashmere belongs to Anya and Richard 🙁 Will have to do something about that soon 😉 Thanks for the kind words on the photos x
