BEST OF BRITISH

28 May

Apologies for the lack of posts recently. Things have been super-hectic. As a mum of two little ones, half-term, and running your own business, sometimes one thing or another has to go on the back burner. We have also been away for a few days over the bank holiday, relaxing it up with friends, back to nature, experiencing the best of British. There are so many beautiful places to explore in the UK and Cornwall is one of our favourites.

One bug-bear of mine when travelling within the UK however is what to pack? You never know if the weather will be kind, even in the Summer. Seein ... Read More

LITTLE DUDES

29 Apr

DUdesndolls
As a mother of two girls, when it comes to mini-style I have it easy. From my own shopping experiences, just keeping an eye out to all aspects of fashion, I notice (and am constantly hearing complaints from friends) that comparatively little boys style is a lot harder to come by. So this one if for you guys. Those with little dudes. Aptly, dudesndolls.co.uk.

Dudes n Dolls offer simple, cool, quirky, and stylish, printed leggings and harems. That, most importantly here, are very reasonably priced. Not may of us feel the need to pay £30 for leggings, even for ourselves....If I ha ... Read More

NAUTICAL UPDATES

27 Apr

IO Hayfield
Sartorial wise, a striped top is one of my favourite wardrobe staples. Nine times out of ten you will see me reach for a stripe when it comes to everyday style. Thrown on with denim of some description, or favourite leather pants, it's a style that is as simple as it is perfect. Every season nautical themes make a comeback in some way or another. So what's more of an excuse needed to update those stripes?

For pregnancy I love the simplicity of a striped tank, top, or dress. Isabella Oliver is a go-to. I lived in their ruched t-shirt dress during both my pregnancies, and their up ... Read More

LITTLE SWIMMERS

There is no time like the present when it comes to investing in those new summer additions. And even more so where little ones and swimming costumes are concerned. Every season when I go to stock up for our Italian summers away, there are never any sizes left in my favourites. Don't you just hate that? Well, this year, and with two little ones to purchase for, I have vowed to get in there early.

With my most recent quest under-way I came across this really cool children's boutique, Busy and the Boy, and instantly fell in love with their little swimwear collection. We travel quit ... Read More

THE WHITE SHIRT

29 Mar

White shirt style
There is something about the perfect white shirt. Men, woman (maternity) and even little ones.  It's just a timeless piece however you choose to wear it. For such an effortless piece then, why is it so hard to find the perfect one?

For me that perfect one needs to be structured yet retain the softness you only get from the best quality cotton. It can't be too sheer, or crease at the slightest fold. It also needs to be some kind of boyfriend fit. The same rules apply when shopping for my husband or the girls. (An added criteria for the girls is a ruffle or peter-pan collar.) Wit ... Read More

Petites pettats
So basically these are just the cutest when it comes to babies and those scrumptious little feet. Petites Pattes. Little socks, that are so much more.

Petit Pattes are also, most importantly, designed and crafted to ensure the comfort of a babies de ... Read More

MULTI-PURPOSE

22 Feb

Tote bags
As you know Marie Chantal is one of my favourite designer destinations for the girls, especially when they have a sale on. So I was just browsing the site (as part of my Sunday evening sofa-shopping-routine), and aside from all those pretty peter-pan collars and chic patterned dresses, I just noticed these.

I have been keeping my eyes (and ears) open for a stylish overnight/weekend tote to transport back and forth to the grandparents for a while now, and these might just be it. Also great as a swimming bag I think? Even a hospital bag or changing bag?  So you get use right from ... Read More

KARL LAGERFELD, KIDS.

11 Feb

Karl Lagerfeld
So those exciting rumours going around have finally been confirmed. Karl Lagerfeld is to launch a children's fashion label.

It's been years in the waiting and can't really come a moment to soon. With the likes of Burberry, Marc Jacobs and Stella MacCartney already firmly on the map when it's comes to kids style, Lagerfeld will imminently be up there with the best of them. He already set pulses racing upon sending those utterly chic mini-me versions down the Chanel catwalk, so we can all finally breath a sigh of relief that the fantasy will soon become a reality. (For th ... Read More

GREENBERRY KIDS

18 Dec

Pom pom
I love discovering new brands and Greenberry Kids is my latest gem. Mini-Scandi-style mixed with a cool Korean flair. This is my kinda children's clothing, and those baby pieces are just too cute.

In all honesty, there's not much else to say. All you need to do is look at these outfit images and you know what I am talking about.

You can shop Greenberry Kids here, and if your quick I think you still have time for Christmas delivery. I am coveting the Annkia star-print tutu for A, debating upon it as part of her Christmas look...What do you think?

MINI SCENTS

9 Dec

Baby perfumes
You may have read in my previous post how A has developed a penchant for my perfume? So this Christmas she is getting her own mini-scent in her stocking. Hopefully that will do the trick..

I never really took much notice of baby-perfumes before, so I might be wrong in saying this, but it seems like a lot more brands are getting on the bandwagon. This season there seem to be a lot of new scent releases aimed at babies and little ones? There are the established favourites, Bonpoint and Burberry have had their own mini-scents for a while, but now you can get it pretty much everywhe ... Read More
