Named after her favourite bunch of flowers, Peonies, Durban based mom to a gorgeous little 13-month old named Blaire (whom is also the inspiration behind the business), Kelly started her business Peony and Pea in October last year and the trendy matching mommy and baby / toddler apparel online store is already taking over the mommy and me scene on Instagram!
Her first collection features the beautiful feminine ‘Mama bird’ and ‘Baby bird’ shirts which came into existence after Kelly trolled the internet shortly after she knew she was having a baby girl looking for cute matching slogan t-shirts for her and her daughter to wear which she would wear as a ‘badge of honour’. After falling short of finding trendy t-shirts with beautiful coloured prints and amazing fabrics, the peony crazy mama decided to start her own business for her and her baby ‘pea’.
Fast forward to our stunning delivery from Kelly and I can safely say that she has brought a truly one of a kind product to the market that is not only super stylish and a quality screen print I’d actually want to wear made in an INCREDIBLE fabric! Think a quality fabric with a super soft feel that won’t leave you feeling itchy and your skin feeling hot and bothered.
The prints are 100% original and have been custom made by the lovely Jess at Water Colour Heart Illustration who hand painted the gorgeous birds, using the most feminine colour palette of dusty pinks, lilacs, lemony yellows and added trendy elements like the flower crown and the rose gold glitter!
The fit you ask? I have had a few fellow plus size mamas asking me about the fit of their largest size (a XXL) and I can confidently say that I am 100% happy with the fit. The shirts have a higher neckline which is on trend at the moment, its extra length at the back and a loose fit so I don’t constantly have to pull my shirt down. I usually have to wear a white vest under t-shirts like these as white isn’t always the most flattering colour but I wore a black bra when shooting these pics and you cannot tell that I am…
The baby/toddler cut is my FAV! They feature a longer length back as well as a gorgeous pleat which I have never seen before and I am so in love with it!
Both shirts have an upturned fold on the sleeve and guess what – no tags whatsoever! The are printed in the neckline so no scratchy irritating tags inside their shirts!
There is also a ‘Blossoming mama’ and ‘budding babe’ twinning set which are available for purchase. So check out Peony & Pea‘s Instagram page for more pics!
