Wedding Suited & Booted

We went to a rather posh wedding this weekend, it was the misters cousin's wedding and because of distance we rarely see them so had to make sure the boys were looking their best! They both did me proud!

This is the first time I'd put Tiger in a suit, the last wedding we went to I opted for a more casual look of tan chinos, white shirt and London city bow tie (which was super cute! I bought it from Topman, I often buy accessories from Topman for Tiger as a mans wooly hat looks like a great oversized wooly hat on him!) and now that he's older I thought he would be ready for a suit.

I originally bought a gorgeous waistcoat, shirt and brilliant doggy tie from Next which cost £25 but returned it when I stumbled on this waistcoat, shirt and tie set from Peacock!! (I never shop in Peacock but I also never rule out browsing in any shop) and was delighted when I found this set for only £5 in the sale (originally £15) after the wedding I can mix the set with casual clothes so he can get more wears out of them. I love the trousers, I thought it would take me ages to find as I am particular about the shape of trousers but these are skinny suit trousers from Next £13, great colour and fit! And I ADORE these brogues, they are really light weight and have great grip so Tiger can still happily run about in them H&M £12, Tiger is usually only use to wearing different styles and colours of Converse trainers (I'm a Converse junkie!) so took some convincing to get them on him, I told him he looked just like daddy going to work in his 'big boy' suit and shinny shoes and he was sold!!

As I've mentioned before I don't like putting Beaux in restrictive clothing but still wanted him to be smart. I had seen these tuxedo Rompers before but couldn't find them anywhere on the high street (I think I would have had more luck around Christmas time) so hunted for one on trusty old eBay! I couldn't find one that I liked the shape/design of in the UK and as I still had plenty of time I ordered this from a eBay shop in Hong Kong £10, I had never bought anything from Hong Kong before and wasn't sure if it would get stuck in customs but it arrived without any problems in just over a week! however I was a little disappointed as it was all print (which I couldn't tell from the photo, the downside of online ordering!) but I turned to trusty and talented Granny and she knocked up a small bow tie out of some material she had and sewed it on and voila! It really made all the difference! He received plenty of oohs, aahs and cooing at the wedding and looked adorably smart.
