When I saw the collection at RoryBird, I fell in love with its simplicity. Mothers are now dressing their children like little adults and I am guilty of it. I would dress my little man in a spiffy business-cut shirt tucked out of a contrasting bright-coloured skinny jeans, topped with a fedora hat. Not that this is a crime or something people will frown upon but I must say, “sometimes, we should just let kids dress like kids”.
4) Any item in their store can be Monogrammed. Who wouldn’t be grateful for a little personalisation on their baby’s first RoryBird? (Contact RoryBird for more information)
We brought the children to the beach to give the Smocked Elephant apparels a test-drive. It was 11:30am when we photographed them in their respective RoryBirds. Granted the weather was at its best with Mr Sun hiding behind the clouds but it was obvious that they were very comfortable playing and napping in the clothes.
2 year old Ewan was wearing the Smocked Elephant Romper Shortalls in Size 2T.
6 wks old Faye was wearing the Baby Smocked Elephant Bubble Romper in Size 3m.
Their clothes are fuss-free and breathable, providing lots of room to play in. Best of all, I didn’t need to iron them after washing! That is what every mom would be thankful for – crease free clothes that give us credit for taking time out to iron (when we did absolutely nothing at all).
On Faye: It being a bubble romper gave her lots of breathable space under it unlike the body-hugging ones. I love how the elephants parade and thankfully it is blue! See? Girls can look really sweet outside the usual pinks. The prettiest parts to the whole romper are the sleeves. I adore that traditional english charm to the frills. It turns any boyish looking baby into a girl even without a headband! Although Faye’s bubble romper looked like it was suffocating her neck (now what neck are we talking about? She’s so chubby!), it didn’t. Believe me, if she was uncomfortable, she wouldn’t hesitate to make a stand. Yet, our little bud slept through our time at the beach and rounded the afternoon up with a beautiful smile.
On Ewan: The smocked shortalls can be worn on its own or paired with a white shirt for a dressier occasion. It was an obvious choice to head down to the beach as it is. Shortalls are short overalls. I’ve never quite fitted Ewan into an overall (long pants) because the weather in Singapore is way too humid. Shortalls are perfect for our weather because they are sleeveless and have a shoulder to waist armhole. It doesn’t have a waistline so it wears very comfortably without any elastic bands. What I like best about this piece? It is so universal that Faye can fit into it nicely when she turns 2 and would look just as great!
