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.
I found this blouse when I was compiling our edit of the Mango womenswear for Friday’s post (so many great things…). I always love a ruffle and I love this style of pretty (but simple) blouse for Tabitha – so easy to chuck on with jeans, dungarees (how sweet are these?), or little shorts when you want something a little prettier than a regular top/tee. In fact, it’s very similar to one I have myself (and love and wear all the time) from Isabel Marant. Tabitha’s (I went for the striped) is already on its way! But I may or may not be able to resist a second…

ps: I always size up with blouses for little ones, and just roll the sleeves up for a while. It’ll easily last until next Summer if you do. Also super-cute as a little dress on girls younger than three. Particularly with knitted tights in the Winter months.

Ladies, you spoke, we listened. So here it is: our first ‘Tween Spree’ post. There are some lovely pieces out there for older girls so we thought we’d start you off (yes, we’ll be doing more, and not just for girls) with a round-up of some of our favourites. These denim cut-offs and green utility jacket are mini-must-have pieces, and we just love these cute accessories (they would make great gifts too). Oh, and just between us Mamas, those leather woven sandals go up to size 41, so, if somehow your shoe size ends up in the basket, our lips are sealed!
Although we’ve never tested the theory, it’s said that if you wear all your favourite pieces together, you end up with a wonderful outfit. These girls ‘as seen on Little Spree’ sale picks seem to prove the theory – chosen individually, on the basis that they were some of our favourite items from our winter outfit edits (and still had sizes available) they actually make a lovely (cheap chic) outfit. You might also like to test the theory with these other sale pieces from Mango, Louis Louise, Gap, Louis Louise, Mango, and Manuela de Juan.

ps: Tabitha has 2, 3 and 4. In fact, SC loves number three so much, she’s considering re-buying for next Winter!
We first saw this gorgeous dungaree styling at the Bonpoint Spring/Summer 2016 catwalk show (above). Then we saw it for the second time last week at the Bonpoint press day for the same collection. Even more adorable in person! We have long been fans of the dungaree for girls (and that includes us!!), and I often love to style mine and Tabitha’s with something ‘pretty’ to contrast with their, ultimately, boyish style. But this simple (why didn’t we think of it before??) styling trick of addling a black ribbon? It’s nothing short of styling genius! Get down to your local John Lewis haberdashery department (or get online right now!!) and get yourself some black, grosgrain ribbon, For you and your little ‘Mini Me’. I know I will be!

ps: Tabitha was given this glittery ‘mini bag’ by Monsoon at a recent party they held at The Tower of London to celebrate their 20th anniversary of childrenswear. She absolutely loves it. It really is super-cute.
pps: this blouse is a great option in the unlikely event that you can’t be arsed with the DIY ribbon…
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!
