Ted’s Holiday Threads #7

Don't miss a thing

Ted has been on his first holiday and he’s learnt from his mum that when you go on holiday you need a ‘holiday wardrobe’ as well. I have no concept of this mentality but Ted seemed to enjoy exhibiting his latest wears on his sunny hols in the Isle of Wight.

PLain Lazy FINAL

Here’s ted choosing his first set of wheels ready for his holiday. He’s wearing his new T-shirt from Plain Lazy and mark my words, this boy will be ‘wheelieing’ as soon as he possibly can. He seems to have a bit of a dare devil, no fear streak to him. Can’t think where he gets that from! I am a big sports fan and I really hope that Ted likes sports too.

Duckling FINAL

Obviously when the sun shines in the UK it’s usually still fairly chilly. Ted was prepared with his Pilot’s hat to keep his lovely little ears warm from My Little Duckling. His baby grow is from Gap and I love it because it has a zip! Quick and easy, just how I like it.

Totsi & Bo FINAL

Here’s Ted settling in to his new home for the week. We stayed in a gorgeous, cosy cottage. Here Ted is wearing more gap sale items – always a winner! His shoes are from Totsi and Bo. They are elasticated which means they are easy for me to get on him. Bonus!


I said he has a dare devil streak and Ted’s demonstrating it again by scaling this 20ft wall! He’s wearing the perfect shoes for it too from Little Shoos! Soft shoes with little diggers. Cute and good for climbing – I wonder if they do adult sizes?

Little Shoos FINAL

We found the perfect gnome in a corner of the butterfly sanctuary. I think this is a gorgeous photo of Ted and I even managed to match the orange/pink/salmon (we all disagree on the actual name of this colour- what do you think?) stripe of his jumper (from Gap) with his Panda & the Sparrow leggings. Check me out!

Toby Tiger FINAL

And here’s more of my matching talent. I picked out the wife’s top to go with the boy’s! Ok, so that’s a slight bend of the truth, but they are matching and it’s a cool photo. Ted’s elephant stripes are from Toby Tiger. I love the bold colours. Here they are on the beach after Ted’s first experience of crabbing.

Tommy & Lottie FINAL

He doesn’t often sit still but here he is sporting his new dodgem tee. An appropriate item of clothing to be wearing considering he is on his first fair ground ride – the tea cups! (I was sick shortly after this photo was taken – I don’t do rides!!!) This dodgem tee is from Tommy & Lottie! I love it.

Do you buy your child new clothes for holiday or do you refuse to entertain the world of baby fashion and it’s craziness? Which of Ted’s outfits did you like the best? And…. what is that bloody colour called?

    • Al Ferguson

      Thank you. I know! I want one! :)

    Holiday wardrobe is definitely a thing! Ha! I tend to top up things my son already has rather than get a whole haul e.g. I bought a handful of character t-shirts on our recent trip to Disney to avoid having to pay inflated prices at Disney. The wing commander hat is so adorable; I love statement hats! #streetstylesunday

    • Al Ferguson

      Thank you. Hope you had a great time at Disney :)

    Ted is adorable! Good boy for grasping the holiday wardrobe concept so early on. And what a fabulous wardrobe it is. I love sleepsuits with zips too. I get mine from Bonds x

    • Al Ferguson

      I’ve not heard of Bonds i don’t think. I will have a look. Thank you :)

  4. The Knott Bump & Us

    Aw you were on the Isle of Wight, not far from us! Hope you had a lovely time. I am loving Ted’s collection of shoes. Those Totsi & Bo moccs are gorgeous. What a lovely colour. I love how inquisitive Ted looks in his photos…he looks like he is always contemplating his next move! Such a cutie. I am such a fan of stripes and the Red mummy and son matching stripes are awesome. Hope you guys had a great weekend :) #weekendbabystyle

    • Al Ferguson

      Where are you guys then? We love the IOW!

  5. Emma

    Soooo sweet! We have just found out we are having another little boy and I can’t wait. The clothes are so gorgeous compared to when I had my last 8 years ago! I adore that hat! :D

    • Al Ferguson

      Congratulations :) Yeah that hat is very popular! Hope you’re feeling well :)

    The Wing Commander Hat has won the internet for today and possibly even the week. Mighty fine taste!

    • Al Ferguson

      Ah thank you. That hat is just brilliant :)

    • Al Ferguson

      Thank you so much for both of those compliments :)

  7. Catriona

    His first holiday? How exciting! I hope you all had a lovely time. I love all his outfits, he’s got such a great style as well as being such a cutie! I struggle to find cardy’s will have to have a look on Gap’s website, although the deliveries quite high and we don’t have a shop anywhere near us :(. I love the photo of the matching tops!

    • Al Ferguson

      We had THE BEST time thank you. I love Ted in a cardy. Gap is brilliant – their sales are incredible. I’ll look in our local one if you tell me the size?
