the tale of peter rabbit (and little spree)

Peter Rabbitt Dungaree

1. Marks & Spencer 2 Piece Cotton Body & Dungarees Set, £18.00
2. Minnetonka Fringed Baby Booties, £35.00

“Once upon a time there were four little Rabbits, and their names were – Flopsy, Mopsy, Cottontail, and Peter”. And one day Marks and Spencer decided that Peter Rabbit would make a very cute print for a baby bodysuit, especially when worn with soft cotton dungarees and adorable booties. The end.

best baby changing bags

Stella McCartney Kids Navy Changing Bag, £211.00

For some reason, unbeknown to us, there seems to be a complete dearth of decent baby/changing bags. Why is this?? Why is no one addressing this? Now this one is pricey (although not as pricey as some!), but it’s a really good one. And when you factor in ‘cost per wear’ (and trust us, you are going to be ‘wearing’ it A LOT), it’s practically a steal!
And while were were snooping around the internet, we also found this one at John Lewis that we liked too. Not bad at all.

ps: for anyone who missed yesterday’s Rabbit In The Moon post (and subsequently the exclusive Little Spree discount code), worry not. They have generously decided to extend it until midnight tonight (Tuesday). So hop to it!

Alex and Alexa still have 20% off a huge selection of shoes. This is our edit for girls. Definitely more of a ‘buy now stash for later’ situation (I’m currently looking out of my window at sheeting rain as I write this…), but we love a bit of delayed gratification shopping sometimes.

stripes, cashmere, fringing…

baby boy mocassins

1. Kin By John Lewis Dungaree Set, £18.00
2. M&S Pure Cashmere Cardigan, £35.00
3. Anne Claire Petit Lamb Music Box, £36.45
4. Minnetonka Fringed Booties, £40.00

Generally speaking we’re not fans of the ‘set’. You know the ones – where they cleverly put an outfit together, usually for a baby, so you don’t need to worry about what goes with what? So they are well-intentioned, but generally pretty naff. We usually find it frustrating when we only like one of the pieces (as is often the case), but then feel reluctant to buy the entire outfit just to wear one thing. Maybe we just don’t like being told how to style an outfit?? Anyway, occasionally we are pleasantly surprised, and this is one of those occasions. How cute is this striped dungaree set?? If you aren’t familiar with the Kin collection by John Lewis, you should definitely check it out. And whilst we were online, we also saw and liked this dungaree set from Mini Club at Boots and this three piece outfit from M&S. Sometimes it’s good to be proven wrong.

puddle proof

S25MW01

Mamas & Papas Puddlesuit, £28.00 (12 months-6 years)

We just love the idea of a ‘puddle suit’. And it just sounds so… Beatrix Potter. But apart from sounding sweet (and being super-practical obviously), this one actually looks good too. It’s just an all-in-one version of the Little Spree favourite, the classic yellow rain mac. We love. And here are some rain macs too (some yellow, some not..): this one from M&S; this one from John Lewis; this one from Mini Club; this one from Gap; this one from H&M (as posted on Instagram); this one from Next; and this one from Petit Bateau. And not forgetting a few wet weather accessories: this umbrella and this umbrella (for your mini super hero), both from M&S; and these plain wellies from John Lewis (available in red, navy and green).

ps: and we couldn’t resist these cute biker-style wellies for us! Love them! Think of them as a little ‘bonus mid-week Mama Spree’.

Hats

Olivier Baby Hand Knitted Cable Hats, £32.00

How gorgeous are these hats? And the colours?? We can’t get enough of them (particularly in these sub-zero temperatures we’re experiencing in London at the moment). And if we tell you they’re 100% cashmere would you love them just that tiny bit more…
And you can also get the, equally adorable, matching mittens on a string!

ps: I have the heads-up on the online drop date for the Boden ‘navy blue Monday’ flats!! 9th March. Put it in your diaries ladies! I already have! SC

‘cheap chic week’ on little spree

PL_04_T78_5677F_Z4_X_EC_0

M&S Autograph Knitted All-In-One (0-18 months), £16.00

It’s January, we’re a bit over the sales now (we’ve pretty much bought everything we’re going to buy, and there are so many new season temptations…); we know that scary credit card bill is due any day now (eeek!); and January just seems so, long… But we still feel like a little treat here and there (we’re only human after all!!): a ‘little spree’ if you will (with the emphasis on ‘little’). So this week is dedicated to all things chic that also happen to be cheap: ‘cheap chic’ week. Every day we will be bringing you a single item that we love, that we think you will love too, but that we also feel is particularly great value for money (as we need to keep the spending to a minimum, at least until February…). It doesn’t mean we love them any less – we simply had to search that little but harder to find them. We will also be bringing you a cheap chic Mama Spree on Friday.  This is guilt-free week on Little Spree! First up, this adorable Breton striped all-in-on…
