Olivier Baby & Kids is without doubt, one of our favourite independent brands for children. We particularly love the baby collections – you literally want everything (including a new baby to wear it!). Think the softest cashmere in the most beautiful colours, Liberty print frilled blouses, cashmere rompers, ruffle front dresses, striped knits… And not to mention the most adorable accessories – cashmere bonnets, beanies, scarves and mittens. Classic, but not too classic. Traditional, but cleverly designed with a modern edge. Anyway, this is just a tiny selection of our favourite pieces for Autumn/Winter. But don’t just take our word for it – you can see (and feel) the collection for yourself at their first ever Pop Up shop in London – a little treasure trove of discoveries for babies, girls and boys. Edit.58 will also be at the store with a selection of the gorgeous baskets, rugs, cushions and wire words that we all know and love from Instagram. The store opens on Monday 12th September for just two weeks. And on 17th September, we are really excited to be teaming up with Olivier Baby to co-host an exclusive private shopping/press event at their store from 3.00pm-4.30pm. As well as the chance to preview the new collection (entitled ‘Adventure Is Out There’), there will be a delicious afternoon tea, plus sweet entrainment for the kids. And our friend, the lovely Lisa (who we know you all love too) from Edit.58 will be there too. The event is by invitation only, but we are excited to extend the invite to ten lovely Little Spree readers (plus your little ones of course – you have to bring them!). We would love to see you! Please email Katie at Olivier Baby & Kids (email@example.com) if you fancy joining us. Also, one of the ten will be picked at random to win an Olivier Baby & Kids outfit, which can be chosen on the day. We will be on hand (if you need us) to help you choose of course!

ps: we’ll share what we bought for our kids another time…
pps: a little reminder that the H&M Studio collection launches today.
We love a bit of La Redoute. But particularly the kidswear and the homewear (did you see the gorgeous cushions from Saturday’s post?). But the thing we love the most about La Redoute? The fact that they almost always have some kind of amazing sale on! And right now is one of those times. They currently have a Bank Holiday 30% discount code (ending at midnight tonight), which magically makes everything that was already a bargain, a total bargain! So everything here is showing the pre-sale price (yes really!). We particularly love the baby collections at the moment (although, do bear in mind that most of these things go up to age three, so ‘baby and beyond’ as we like to call it…), and have already done our edit for you (let’s face it, you can lose entire days (and not to mention, the will to live) trawling through websites during sale times, so why bother when you don’t need to?). We have found a mix of mostly new season, as well as some great, late sale bargains (some things are 50% off) for next summer, so get ready for a bit of ‘buy now, stash for later’ action ladies…

ps: if anyone’s interested, I just ordered this storage drawer for underneath Tabarlow’s bunk beds. Perfect for chucking all their crap in that you just want to ‘disappear’ at the end of the day… SC
Hot on the (slightly larger) heels of the Mama Shop, the Little Shop has been re-stocked. You’ll find our Summer holiday edit – our favourite pieces for babies, boys and girls in the most gorgeous colours and prints, all perfect for the Summer months. And many of them are on sale – even better! But don’t take our word for, take a look for yourself…
Happy shopping, and happy holidays!!
Our first holiday with the twins was to Tuscany when they were eight months old. Not the easiest holiday I’ve ever had (living without a nappy bin, was definitely living ‘on the edge’…), but I always remember Tabitha and I in our matching Mexican embroidered dresses at the beach one day. So when I saw this one it reminded me how cute this type of simple dress is on baby girls. And just add a too big straw hat for extra cuteness…
Here are a few more options from Bonton, Louis Louise, Stella McCartney, and ilovegorgeous (all one sale).
We are big fans of this super-stylish enamelware for kids. Unbreakable, but so much more stylish than anything plastic. Kids love it because it’s more grown up than than plastic, but you don’t have the stress of worrying about breakages. We particularly love the tumblers and mini tumblers, and the little bake pans. To be honest, we love it all. And obviously it’s not just for kids either. Falcon Enamelware are offering Little Spree readers 10% off for the next three weeks (just add this code: Falcon Spree), so give it a try for yourselves!
