Karate kids

I met a friend in Highbury Fields recently and her beautiul 14 month old girl, Tilly,was wearing a very hip pair of karate pants by American Apparel. They not only looked cool but they were the perfect play pants; less restrictive than jeans and cooler than leggings (in both senses). I had serious baby wardrobe envy. As soon as I could I logged on to AA's website and discovered they do them in 14 delicious shades including olive, lavender, bright red, heather grey and the super chic asphalt for a tenner a go. I'm thinking they are a practical but stylish investment for Evie now that she is toddling everywhere (in the style of a drunk old man after a night on the Guinness, I might add). They only difficulty will be deciding which colours to go for...


  1. I have those for both my kids and, indeed, they are very cool and comfortable...

  2. Just bought a red pair - loving them already! x
