Vintage Style - Classic Oobi

Hey mums and dads, I'm thrilled to share the sweet-as-a-flower Tulips Collection with you. It's a gorgeous new print in a classically Oobi-licious style. Best of all, the fabric is embossed with a gorgeous pattern, creating a depth to the fabric, and a very rich and (can I say...) glamorous style.

I find this print very sweet and wearable, and the little hints of chambray make the styles suitable for many different ages. And, well, what about trying a matchy-matchy look with your little ones? I'll be rocking (well, wearing, we'll see about rocking) the Tulips hat in size XL myself this season, and I'm excited about the chambray underlay. How about you? If you do, share, share, share, we'd love to see!!

TULIPS COLLECTION

It's a very 'old skool' and Oobi-licious collection online next week!

Tulip dress

MEGAN PINK TULIP DRESS

Sizes up to 8Y

MEGAN YELLOW TULIP DRESS

Sizes up to 8Y

I really love the Megan dress. It's also a very classic Oobi style. Deceptively simple but beautifully made, well-cut and designed to fit. It's got pockets (pockets!) and a sash tie at the back, plus a concealed zipper. This style should suit most girls - now you just have to choose the colour you love best.

BRIDGETTE YELLOW TULIP HAT

Sizes up to XL

Our Bridgette sun hat has a wide brim, toggle and is lined underneath to frame the face with chambray. In my opinion, chambray is a universal tone - it really suits absolutely every skin tone and is flattering and cool.

Tulip romper

MINNIE PINK TULIP ROMPER

Sizes up to 18M

It's Minnie for your Minnie. Imagine this with knee high red ribbed socks and a hat. OMG I can't wait to see your bubbas in this piece. It's practical (press studs at the crotch) and generous and airy, so little tums can feel that summer breeeeeeeeze.

Ollie overall

OLLIE PINK TULIP OVERALL

Sizes up to 6Y

OMG Ollie! I am IN LOVE. 11/10 would wear! Wide-legged elastic waisted pants with a quirky little chambray trim and 100% removable straps that can be worn X at the back and then straight as your little one gets taller. Don't love the straps? Take 'em off! You do you!

Did you notice our gorgeous new mermaid-y teal green tee? It's ahhhhh-mazing on! The colour is so luscious.

I ALWAYS do my skirt bows to the right, I love that sweet and slightly off-centre look. Call it a quirk. You can wear it any way you like, of course. To the front, spin it to the back - this elastic waisted skirt allows you to do you. Mix and match with our new colours of Flutter Tees in more rainbow shades!

And another thing...

Recently, one of our beautiful Oobi mums, Hayley, did a great post on our Facebook Oobi VIP Page asking the other mums to share their vintage Oobi pics and wow - they did not disappoint!

We got over 200 comments and we can't help but feel nostalgic about the pics everyone shared. One thing's for sure, you guys LOVE your Oobi colour and we can't be more proud of the sweet, colourful and age-appropriate designs Oobi has come up with over the years.

Take a trip down memory lane with some of our vintage pretties and what our mums have to say about them.

It's not only the clothes that are vintage, we've had some gorgeous quilts even back then too. Check out this classic Oobi quilt featuring some of our earliest prints.

How adorable are these two?! Love how they pulled off the matchy matchy look and they're not even wearing the same outfit.
