Mama and me | summer checks

It barely feels like we’ve made our way into 2014 and yet already we’re heading for the second half of the year and the summer sales are in full swing, not to mention diaries full of BBQ’s, summer parties, picnics, weddings, and the rest… The perfect time for slipping into that summer favourite, checks.
Think full-on tablecloth checks for you and your little ones on those hazy summer days (because the rain will hold off, won’t it?). Team with contrasting brights and your neutral basics (hats and bags to wear anywhere).

If you’re breastfeeding this Great Plains shirt dress is perfect (and on sale for £40) with its button-front for easy access and the busy print means any marks (yep, baby vom!) should be cleverly disguised.
If you’re big up top, unbutton to create a flattering v-neckline. Have a smaller bust? Button right up and add a bright, contrasting necklace like this Oliver Bonas style.
The flattering fit and flare shape (so hot right now) is ultra flattering to create curves on straighter figures and flatters pear-shapes by nipping in your waist, try a brighter belt to enhance this cinching even more.  Plus the knee-length hem means bending over to deal with little ones won’t result in flashing your mum-pants!
