she has some little brown boots or her normal cerise everyday shoes, really don't want to have to buy new shoes too.

Don't have more than £25 and would like to get more than a wedding out of it, (don't want much do I)

smarty casual wedding. I like flouncy type skirt/dresses, nothing Sarah Louise

there is a pic of her on my profile if you need inspiration, she's very slight and wears 18-24 mths.

thank you

she has these shoes

and these boots

I did actually look at that today in the shop poppy but tis a bit summery. thank you

forgot about vertbaudet, will go search now,

has she no dresses that would do already? how about a pretty sundress from this year with a cardigan and/or a blouse/tshirt underneath?
(disclaimer: I think 2yo girls are generally gorgeous enough without being dolled up, yours is no exception wink, so dd rarely gets special party outfits unless MIL is buying)

this would look fab with the pink shoes and wouldn;t look too much for everyday wear afterwards with the boots

this is cool but not 'flouncey' - may be too casual?

or how about a pinafore you could put a pretty blouse under for the wedding then wheel out with a plain tshirt afterwards? Or is that too Sarah Louise?
DD was recently given this which I have put away for Christmas parties but will go into normal circulation afterwards (pattern slike that are brilliant for hiding stains...)

This with a long sleeved cream top and cream tight s would look fab and work with her shoes.

norktasticninja Sat 03-Oct-09 21:28:05

Floral, again with cream tights and the shoes.

norktasticninja Sat 03-Oct-09 21:29:25

Cord, cream tights (again) and her boots.

thanks ladies,

mrsB I have just tried on the dress I bought her in the sale 3 months ago, along with all of her dresses and she seems to have had a growth spurt so a complete wardrobe rethink is in order.

Hadn't thought of Debenhams, I like the navy and pink casual.

I returned the said dress today with no receipt hoping to simply exchange for something else, (BHS) but had gone down in the sale to £5.20!! shock. It was £17 when I bought it. She Never grows normally, she's been the same height for ages now. Bloody kids.

Am going to car boot in the morning, might be lucky and pick up something for 50p.

norktasticninja Sat 03-Oct-09 21:35:06

This would look fab and be very hard wearing

THis? with wight tights and a white long sleeve? Maybe a bit grown up!

MrsBadger Sat 03-Oct-09 21:36:38

actually if she really wears 18-24ish I have stacks of the buggers upstairs as dd has just gone into 2-3

most are summery but I will have a rummage if you like

liahgen Sat 03-Oct-09 21:59:14

Ooh would you Mrs B? That would be fab, she need stuff for winter now, the stuff she's outgrown is all 12-18 mths

Thanks norks I hardly ever think of Mothercare, we have quite a big one whereI live so may pop in, some of those things you have linked to are very sweet.

BabyK a bit grown up for my liking as you said.

thank you

MrsBadger Sat 03-Oct-09 22:09:02

will let you knwo how I do!

th other place to look is Mini Mode at Boots - they have the odd utter gem.

I have a lovely velvet (not as bad as it sounds) that would match those shoes lovely and is nice a warm. I can send pic if you like, you can have it ffp too

liahgen Sat 03-Oct-09 22:24:05
