I still cringe when I look at photographs of myself taken in the ’70s. My ensembles always seemed to involve brown corduroy pants paired with some hideous maroon or bottle green skivvy. Ditto for swimwear. A navy Speedo one-piece was about as cute as I got as a child.
OK, I exaggerate, but I really find it hard to find one photo where I have a gorgeously girly outfit on. So it’s with giddy excitement that I’ll place my first order for one of these divine vintage-inspired cossies for my baby daughter. I image her looking back at photos of herself one day chuffed at how irresistibly cute she looked!
Paddle‘s pieces are designed for children aged one to six. Take your pick from gingham, frills, shirred tops, side-tied bottoms and tutu-style skirts in either pale pink or sky blue.
And don’t think the boys are forgotten – European-style swimming trunks in red or sky blue will ensure your little man stands out from the crowd while he gets on with his important jobs of collecting shells and building sandcastles.
The only thing to make you feel even more warm and fuzzy is that these beautiful pieces are 100 per cent Australian owned and made. What’s not to love? My only question is – when will adult sizes be available?
