Beach Baby

Baby girl holidayn outfit - Little Spree

1.Mango Straw Hat £8.99 (was £17.99)
2. Mango Embroidered Cotton Dress (1-12 months) £7.99 (was £15.99)

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).

Boys Sale Round-Up

30 June 2016

Boys sale round-up - LILTTLE SPREE

1. Carrement Beau T-Shirt (2-12 years)  £24.00 (was £30.00)
2. Mango Sunglasses £6.49 (were £12.99
3. Louis Louise Jumper (3 months-12 years) £56.31 (was £80.44)
4. Sunchild Shorts (2-12 years) £42.25 (were £52.81)
5. Zef Star Bag £35.75 (was £44.69)
6. Pepe Suede Sandals (sizes 24-34) £42.25 (were £52.81)
7. Hartford Henley T-Shirt (2-16 years) £27.79 (was £46.31)

As well as filling the gaps in their Summer wardrobe, Summer sales are also an opportunity to make a (cheap chic) start on the season ahead. For now we love these khaki green shorts and navy sandals for their classic versatility,and we’re making a start on our boys Autumn wish-lists with this Louis Louise navy jumper and these long sleeve t-shirts. Well we say Autumn, but actually long sleeve t-shirts (along with rain macs and wellies) seem to be essential Summer-wear so far. Still, we remain optimistic that short sleeve t-shirts will be required – I have bought Bailey this ukulele one from Hartford and this lovely Bellerose grey linen one. For those days where it’s chilly, then sunny, hot then chilly, sunny, rainy and chilly again, we’ll be layering them under this Babe & Tess navy sweatshirt, and for really chilly days this Hartford cosy fleece lined grey one.

These are a few of our favourite sales pieces for girls. We always make the most of the sales, particularly for the more expensive brands that we don’t usually indulge in that often. We’ve also included these fab Boden glads (don’t forget they also come in leopard print, as styled by Tabitha…) as they are such a great buy, plus this cardigan (why is it so hard to find nice, affordable girls’ cardigans??).
Some more sale bargains: Carament Bleu frilled Breton, Louis Louise sun dress, Bonton cat basket, Bellerose lace dress, Babe & Tess striped all-in-one, and Tabitha’s favourite ‘Alice in Wonderland dress’ from Boden.

Stripes and Ruffles

23 June 2016

Next girls striped ruffle swimsuit - LITTLE SPREE

Next Striped Frill Swimsuit (3 months-6 years) £12.00-£13.00

Blue and white stripes and rows of cute ruffles = immediately ‘in my basket’. As much as I love a sweet cotton bikini for Tabitha, I also always have a couple of cute swimsuits in the mix. I love this one! But there’s a catch (for Tabs anyway) – it only goes up to age 5-6 (although, believe me I will try and squeeze her into it – it’s on its way!). But fear not, fellow mamas of girls six years and beyond, this Boden one is equally cute (and equally striped and ruffly) and goes up to age 12. Panic over.
