This is so simple, and who wouldn’t want to be an adventurer for the day?! Simply put together an outfit with a white shirt, blue jumper, brown trousers, and shoes. And then a rucksack to carry their faithful companion. Finish with a magnifying glass and get out the hair products to create a quiff.
4. Mary Poppins
Get your little one looking practically perfect in every way with a simple MP outfit. All you’ll need is a long, knee-length skirt in black, a pretty white blouse, black tights and boots. Accessorise with a red ribbon for the collar and a red belt, plus a boater-style hat you can accessorise with daisy’s.
