GIVEAWAY - Baobab Spring Summer 2013/14

Our friends at baobab have a new collection and it has put me in the mood for a fabulous Aussie summer filled with playful afternoons and balmy evenings. Expect to see a range of everyday wear and comfy cuts, along with signature prints such as my favourite, the ‘flying birds’. Here’s a little sneaky peek, a review by the awesome foursome (and their mum) and a super fun giveaway!

I thought I’d start today’s review by sharing my three favourite things about the baobab range. First of all,¬†baobab designer Belinda always styles her label with simple (yet adorable) designs that are every bit as practical as they are fun. Secondly, Belinda has made the move in recent years to GOTS certified organic cotton in all of her tees and dresses (three cheers for mother nature). Last, but certainly not least, baobab styles have a certain ‘whimsical simplicity’ about them which makes them fun to wear (but not too grown up).

Here’s what our guest reviewer and mum of four, Elena, had to say…

My kids tend to tear through clothes like a lawnmower through grass, getting into all sorts of mischief on a daily basis. I’ve owned baobab items in the past and have found them to be great quality, so I was more than happy to test out the spring summer range. I’m not big on frills and ruffles but I do like to shop “pretty” for my little girl.

One of the items we tried was the Chambray Babygro which was lovely and light for the hot weather with soft stretchy ruching around the bodice and legs and handy snapclips for nappy changes. I can see this quickly becoming a summer favourite!

For the boys in the house, we tested out a pair of navy relaxed pants, mint beach hoodie and grey marle fleece shorts. The cotton in the hoodie and pants is very soft and I was pleased to see that these items can be tumble dried. I did notice a little bit of shrinkage after tumble drying, but was prepared for this as it is mentioned on the tag. The mint hoodie is such a gorgeous colour it would certainly suit girls as much as boys and in fact my niece wore it to the pool as an “over shirt” with her togs and thongs!

My verdict? Thank you baobab, testing out these goodies made my day and I predict that they will get some much wear, they will become a much loved addition to our washing baskets!
