Finding good quality clothing for me, Ed and the kids, is no easy feat. I have spent more time than I care to admit shopping online and in stores over the past few years, to be disappointed with the quality of the clothing once it has been worn and washed. Lighthouse Clothing, who I have previously worked with on a review basis, kindly offered to send across some of their clothing for us to try out as a family, and I was happy to oblige.
The Lighthouse Clothing website has a selection of clothing for men, women and children, with options for all weathers including a fantastic range of t-shirts, polo necks and loose dresses, perfect for the summer. I decided I wanted to try a different t-shirt for each of the children, but I did note that it would have been possible to have had matching for the boys, which is actually really rare (they are aged 3 and 9, so most shops don’t have the same collections for both age ranges).
For Ed, I went with a polo shirt, and I got the Bay Summer Dress, which I fell in love with – it is perfect for the summer months, when you just want to throw something pretty on, plus it has pockets – the holy grail of dresses!
The clothing arrived promptly and I was really happy with the quality of the material, and the vibrancy of the colours – especially my daughter’s t-shirt, which is yellow and white striped. We all got dressed in our nice new clothes and headed out for a walk by Christchurch Harbour. I think my favourite has to be Benjamin’s little polo shirt – he looks adorable in the navy and white stripes!
The clothing is perfect to wear whilst we have been enjoying days out as a family, exploring the hidden gems of our local county – Dorset. The pieces are as comfortable to wear as they look. was really pleased with how breathable my dress was, it feels so light to wear. I have pretty much been living in it since I got it (it is currently in the wash but will no doubt be back on by tomorrow).
I have since washed the children’s t-shirts and was impressed with the fact that they still looked as good as new. The kids love their t-shirts – I will be looking at the site next time I am looking to stock up their wardrobes!
Lighthouse Clothing sent us the items featured in this post, as part of their #MySummerHaven campaign, however all words and images are my own.
