Tigerlilly Quinn: Back to (shark) school

Back to (shark) school


What Wilf Wore:

Shark Dungarees: Wild Things Dresses
Dr Martins: c/o Cloggs and their 'back to school range'
Top: Gap Kids 

So when I found out I was having a baby I pinned a picture of a chubby little toddler in a shark suit and I said to myself motherhood is going to be about this, cute little bundle of joys toddling around in adorable costumes (I joke obvs but that's part of it right?). Then I realised that babies need to have new sizes every 3 months (or two months if you child grows at the speed of mine) and spending actual money on ridiculously cute handmade outfits for a baby is a bit pricey. Now my son is in the glorious age where sizing lasts for an entire year I thought 'why the hell not' I'm going to buy that shark outfit and here he is in all his shark boy glory - motherhood complete ;) 

What else does a toddler with a shark suit need? Shinny black Dr Martins of course! I can't tell you how many compliments Wilf gets when he wears these about our neighbourhood. We've even not been too disappointed when the sun isn't shinning so the Dr Martins can come out and puddles can be splashed in. What's cool about these kiddo docs is that they are actually done up with zips at the side so once you adjusted the laces to be right you don't have to do them again and again and they are really easy to get off and on. Perfect option for the colder months when wellies might not be appropriate. 

I'm pretty sure one of these pictures needs to actually be framed right?
