The Crazy Stripes Collection from GAP

All photography by Lidiya Kalichuk Photography.

My children wear a lot of GAP clothes because they are fun and age appropriate, with a pricing that is adequate considering how fast they grow out of clothes at this stage.

Then I spotted the Crazy Stripes just over a month ago during a Grazia Middle East event for bloggers at Dubai Festival City. If you follow me on Instagram, you might know what I am talking about. It was love at first sight. 

So after getting a gorgeous dress for my daughter and a trapper hat with matching neck warmer and mittens for my son (not overdoing it ... lol), I decided there and then I had to showcase this adorable collection on the blog - besides being some of the cutest and happiest kids clothes I have seen, they go with pretty much anything! So four other families and one of my favourite photographers later, here is the photoshoot that we put together at the Dubai Marina Walk during a fun morning of the school holidays with these munchkins and Lidiya Kalichuk.

The collection may have been a tad too warm for the glorious Dubai winter weather, but perfect for the cooler temperatures much closer to subzero some of us are moving to over the coming days, to spend Christmas with our oldest and wisest. And do hurry, they have been such a huge success that GAP stores (in Dubai at least) are starting to run really low on stock. Plus there is a sale on these items now! If you can't find the piece you like locally, you can also go for their online sale on HERE. It is the second year in a row that GAP designs Crazy Stripes so if the worse come to the worst, there is always next year ;)

Oh, and for those who like twinning with their kids, there are also mummy and daddy Crazy Stripes pieces.

A huge Thank You to the mummies for making it all happen despite the little people being much more interested in playing hide-and-seek with their friends, and racing each other on their scooters and bikes.
