Cosy and Cool Winter Knits from Bernie and the Beanpole

We love to get out and about for an adventure and don’t let the colder weather stop us. However It’s absolutely no fun when the girls get cold and our outing is cut short so I always make sure I wrap them up in warm clothing - as the saying goes, "there is no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing". The lovely folk at Bernie and the Beanpole kindly sent the girls some items from their gorgeous collection to keep them cosy this winter. We’ve given them a good road test, we’ve even ‘snow tested’ them - and they get a big thumbs up from us ticking both the style and practically boxes for me.

One of the things I struggle the most to get the girls to wear is a scarf but it can make a real difference. They really love the Bernie and the Beanpole Snoods, they are easy to put on and comfortable to wear and just keep that extra little bit of heat in. Ellie has been wearing hers to school and she can easily put it on herself and it doesn’t get in the way at playtime.

If you follow me over on Instagram you’ll know that we have quite an extensive bobble hat collection. I love the bright colours of our latest additions. They are amazing quality, fleece lined and super soft and I think the girls look great in them!

I really like that the designs are simple, yet bold and but aren’t stereotypically girly. Ellie although only 6, is becoming increasingly choosy about what she wants to wear and thinks the headband is fantastic. I think it’s more about her finding her individuality and expressing herself rather than fashion at this stage. I don’t mind what she wears as long as she is warm!

In terms of other plus points for me they are machine washable which is really important when they are being worn when out and about adventuring -my girls manage quite a bit of velocity with their puddle jumping splashed! The size range is great so they will last a few winters (my girls are wearing M and the snoods are one size) The XL bobble hats will fit an adult if you fancy a bit of twinning!

Bernie and the Beanpole have a fab range of accessories including mittens, leg warmers, pjs and comfy loungewear all in really stylish and cool designs. I think I may have to invest in some leg warmers for my girls who are rather fond of skirts and dresses for adventuring in, the 80s child in me wants a pair too! Pop over and take a look at the collection HERE.
