I’m not one to wish my life away.
But there’s a beautiful Australian brand for little girls that makes me wish the months for sunshine and fun in the great outdoors would hurry up already.
It’s the brand that I would be happy to dress Millie in forever.
The Melbourne designer – who named the label after her grandmother – says her designs are a nod to ‘old-fashioned whimsicality’.
Every piece is dainty and pretty but with a contemporary twist. It’s perfect.
The brand new summer range has beautiful printed dresses, pants, bloomers and hats in light fabrics that can easily be mixed and matched to transform your girl’s style from vintage and fresh to bold and quirky boho.
There’s dip dye singlets, soft pastel prints, liberty florals and red and blue cross stitches. Limited-edition rompers are highlighted with gingham bows.
The Peggy summer range is full of cotton dresses, kaftans, harem pants, rompers, nappy covers, playsuits and summer hats.
This season’s range introduces jewellery, headdresses and dream catchers to the mix too.
Millie’s pick? Honestly, we can’t choose just one piece. She wore the colourful Edie Playsuit ($39.95) to a 1st birthday party on the weekend with the matching Mika orange floral sunhat ($34.95) and was cute and comfortable. The tie and toggle on the hat meant it stayed on her head and the frill and button detail on the playsuit was prettily perfect for a party outfit.
The Isla Bodysuit ($44.95) is another must-have along with the very cool hippy red Pacific Pants ($54.95) and ALL the dresses (some with dainty details of ties, puffed sleeves, shirring, tiers or full skirts), which are so easily dressed up for special occasions or worn for floaty fun in the park.
The pieces range in size from babies to six years. But it brings me to a new (albeit far off) dilemma: just what will Millie wear when she’s 7?
Peggy is available online and in boutiques Australia-wide.
