Nutmeg January sale

I sent the lady of the manor to the shiny new Morrison’s near us last week to buy some clothes for the kids who seem to be growing at least a centimetre every day. We conveniently had a voucher from Morrisons to spend as the latest part of my role as a Nutmeg ambassador which was just as well as I think Matilda’s tummy was starting to get cold from being exposed in her too short t-shirts. Not that she ever tucks her tshirt in though or wears a jumper unless there is frost on the ground, I think she must have an in built radiator as apparently she is always hot.

There was the lady of the manor happily picking up clothes in a rare moment of peace with no children to watch when the helpful assistant mentioned that their sale was starting the next day. So she of course promptly ditched what she’d picked up and came back the next day instead. She did come back with a sausage roll, some crisps and a bar of chocolate though which apparently were ‘essentials’.

Nutmeg prices are already great value but if you need some clothes for you children can I recommend you get down their quickly because at sale prices their clothes are incredible value. We spent just under ¬£30 and we got everything below; more than a complete outfit for each child. I really like the style of the Nutmeg clothing, it’s simple and quite understated and washes really well which is an essential for children of this age.

Nutmeg autumn/winter collection

I’m quite excited to share that I’m going to be working with the fine people from Nutmeg over the next year to bring you some regular updates about their clothing range with a few competitions thrown in for good measure.Nutmeg in case you didn’t know is the clothing range from Morrisons which is for adults as well as children.¬†Today I’m kicking off with a few items from their autumn/winter collection modelled by the 2 cutest preschoolers around (even if I do say so myself).


Like many parents we are of course no strangers to shopping in the supermarkets but Morrisions wasn’t one of them until recently simply because we didn’t have one near us. But having spent the past couple of weeks dressing the children in their outfits and of course washing them multiple times (our record is a change of clothes before 8am) I have to say I’m impressed. Not only do they look great they’ve also so far worn really well and most importantly the kids love them!

Henry’s clothes are age 2-3 and he’s a relatively tall 2.5 year old, the shirt fits perfectly but the jeans definitely have some growing room in them and needed turning up. The jeans are a lovely soft material and have an elasticated waist that you can adjust to size. The hoody is just lovely and it’s actually been difficult to prise it off him he likes it so much!

Matilda fell in love with her dress as expected, she put it on over her clothes as soon as I unpacked it. The jumper she’s not so sure on as she finds it a bit itchy so we’ll put it over a long sleeve top once it gets a bit colder. Her clothes are aged 3-4 and the trousers are perfect in length, but big on the waist as all clothes are because she’s such a skinny thing.

Matilda received; blue jeggings, black and red dress, white and blue striped wool jumper, black leggings

Henry received; blue jeans, brown check shirt, grey button up hoody
