From the 16th – 20th September 2019 Genetic Disorders UK are holding their ‘Jeans for Genes Day’ fundraising campaign! If you and your little one are taking part or you’re just here because you adore a bit of denim, enjoy these super cute Baby Denim top picks and find out more about Jeans for Genes Day.
Jeans for Genes Day is the annual fundraising campaign for Genetic Disorders UK, the national charity that supports individuals and families affected by a genetic disorder.
Monies raised on Jeans for Genes Day fund the work of the charity and provide grants to organisations for projects that aim to transform the lives of children with genetic disorders.
Denim Dungaree Outfits
These Denim dungaree outfits are so sweet! They’re ideal as they all come with a long sleeve top and poppers for when it’s time to change your little one’s nappy.
Dungarees are cute, practical and perfect for the colder days ahead. These ones below are adjustable so if your child has a growth spurt, you can adjust the over the shoulder straps and loosen the buttons on the hips.
We adore a denim dress – how sweet are these! Team them up with a warm long sleeve top and a pair of tights too!
Something a Little Different
We are loving these jeans! The rose brown and the green pair are gorgeous for Autumn and the blue pair featured below have no buttons or zips to do up so they are great for little ones on the go.
We are loving these shoes! They’re perfect for adding a hint of denim to your little one’s wardrobe without going for a pair of jeans.
