Since transitioning all beauty, cosmetic, haircare and household products back in 2013 I have been making a conscious effort to purchase ethically made, organic clothing for my little family and I as and when I can afford to do so. Just over a month or so ago I was selected by me&i to review a few of their gorgeously designed OEKO-TEX certified Organic clothing from their Autumn / Winter 2017 range and I honestly couldn’t be happier with the sheer quality of the items chosen. Before I share with you the items selected for little Eco and I, I thought I would take the opportunity to enlighten you about the me&i brand for those less familiar…
me&i is a Swedish clothing company that prides itself on making clothes with a unique design and comfortable fit. Founded in 2004 by Susan Engvall and Helene Nyrell from the kitchen table in their homes in Barsebäck, Southern Sweden, me&i recently launched their fabulous clothing range here in the UK with plans to expand in other countries in the near future.
Items Chosen For My Son and I
I was given the option to choose two items from their Autumn Winter 2017 collection and whilst I had a tough time going back and forth between their Leo Ruffled Sleeved Top, Black Pearls Blouse, Classic Stripped Dress and their knitted long cardigan I ultimately settled on the ever stunning second skin jeans. As it goes I was actively looking to invest in a new pair of skinny jeans as my ever decreasing waist line meant my normal jeans were literally hanging off of me.
Choosing an item for little Eco was more straightforward as he is currently loves all things CARS so getting the vehicles long sleeved top in a flattering vibrant green seemed the best option.
Overall Thoughts on me&i
Our package arrived pretty fast despite being shipped from . Little Eco has taken after his Mama and LOVES to open parcels. He couldn’t wait for me to help him open the branded box that revealed his stunningly beautiful top and was instantly blown away by the sheer quality and feel of the garment. The fabric is soft to touch and incredibly stretchy. Even though I ordered size 92 I think this will last him until the summer months.
Little Eco was equally impressed, wanting to put his new top on straight away and kept pointing to the cars making ‘vroooom’ sounds. I have captured a few images of him wearing his beloved vehicle top in various settings.
As for the second skin jeans…. well the fit speaks for itself! At the time of placing the order I was in between UK size 8-10 and struggled to fit a pair of jeans that actually fit around the waist (no gaps) that didn’t bunch up at the bottom.
I am usually am a Joni girl but these jeans, the fit, the detail AND the very fact that they are ethically made and Organic has converted me and are now my favourite pair of jeans I own. My only gripe is the jeans being made in one colour (a plea for the me&i team to make more colour options).
I am seriously impressed with the overall quality and design of both items chosen and will definitely purchasing more items in the near future.
