As much as Emma chose us I had long ago decided that I would adopt a little girl. For a few reasons. I knew a little girl would make Mark’s heart all squishy squashy, opening him up to the idea of adopting again when the time comes. I also always imagined myself with a little girl. And I had seen the clothes for babies, toddlers and little girls at Naartjie…
Even now with Mark wanting a son and Emma wanting a brother she’d like to call Sister I would love a little girl all over again. Just the other day we were discussing it again and I said to Mark a little girl would be so much better. “Oh!” he said with a slightly raised eyebrow. “Have you SEEN the girls clothes at Naartjie?” I asked. “I’m sure they’re beautiful. But we can’t really plan our family around the pretty things at Naartjie.” And then he made a good point…Naartjie has awesome stuff for boys too…
The first time I bought Emma stuff from my favourite store in the whole wide world I told myself that I would keep them aside for special occasions in case they got dirty or ruined. It didn’t take me long to realize that every day with Emma is a special occasion and if she’s going to get a little grubby then she can get grubby in style…whether she’s goofing around the house, entertaining, learning, relaxing with Kitty or pulling funny faces, every moment is a Naartjie moment.
In fact, the only time Emma’s not in Naartjie is when she’s in the bath
So with my love of all things Naartjie in mind you can imagine my joy and jubilation when I received an invitation to the (re) opening of the Naartjie store in Sandton City on the 9th November. Believe you me, I am counting down the sleeps for the BIG SHOP.
Shopping at Naartjie is always fun, but for Summer it’s double the fun! This season Naartjie presents African inspired prints mixed with exotic batik on gorgeous maxi dresses, all in one rompers (oooh I love all in one rompers), harem pants and rah rah dresses for girls (I LOVE RAH RAH DRESSES).
Boys will be boys and Naartjie knows this. They can play with abandon in rugged utility wear with wild animals, camo print, hard wearing denim and bright badges…
And for all the proud new mommies out there, your little bundles of joy will steal the limelight kitted out in Naartjie. Look out for the all in one dress and leggings in adorable cherry print for your baby girls and crazy creature prints for baby boys.
Don’t forget the yummy wide-brimmed sun hats! Oh and the swimwear! Oh and the sandals! Oh and the sleepwear too. Make sure you get to your nearest Naartjie store for the “Awesome Twosome” promotion from the 3rd until the 30th November.
It’s definitely double the fun this Summer with Naartjie and to celebrate I’m giving away five gift cards to the value of R200 each. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post…you see, easy peasy!!!!!
