Today it’s all the baby boys’. So many super-stylish bargains out there, it was hard to narrow it down to our favourites. A good tip for sale shopping for babies (as they grow SO fast!!) is to plan ahead and size-up. Buy some cute things to put away (‘buy now, stash for later’ as like to call it at Little Spree) and whip out in a few month’s time. It’s always such a lovely thing to re-discover them (and feel super-smug about your organisational skills combined with your sales savvy!). One little tip though: make a note in your diary of when you think they might fit – I occasionally would forget my ‘stash’ altogether, only to discover it months after when they didn’t fit, this time because they were too small!! I did have two babies though, so cut me some slack… SC).
We’re also loving this Louis Louise tee; this Kidscase tee; these Louis Louise bloomers; this Kidscase all-in-one; this Imps & Elfs cardigan; this Babe & Tess onesie; these Emile et Ida trousers; and this; this; and this, all from Gap.

ps: don’t disregard the Gap grey bodysuit as a bit of a ‘blah’ sale pick. These bodsuits are so useful for babies. They literally keep your little one’s look ‘together’, and are great for layering. And a grey one is always a stylish choice for baby boys (or girls of course).
1. Babe & Tess Fine Stripes Onesie (3-24 months), £40.50 2. Maileg Squirrel, from Elias & Grace, £28.00 3. Louis Louise Baby Slippers, from Elias & Grace (6-12 months), £38.00
It’s hard to believe that Bailey was ever small enough to fit in to an outfit this size, but when he was, this is how I liked to dress him: comfortable, simple, stylish, done (not something I always achieved I might add!). If there’s a cooler baby slipper out there I’ve yet to find it – I adore these Louis Louise ones. In fact Sarah and I are pretty much obsessed with this brand at the moment. For those with the breaking strain of a kit-kat for well priced, cool kids clothes (i.e. us) do not look up this brand!
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.
One of my favourite (and yours too I’ve noticed!) kids’ labels, Mini Boden are kindly giving away all ten of these gorgeous baby pieces (personally chosen by me) to two lucky Little Spree readers. Five pieces for baby girls, and five pieces for baby boys. Each item comes in ages 0-3 years (so not just for babies). To enter, all you need to do is to answer one simple question, and follow Little Spree on Twitter (little spree) and Instagram (littlespree @littlespree) if you don’t already. The question is: what is Tabitha and Marlow’s collective nickname? Please send your answer to: email@example.com, stating ‘boy’ or ‘girl’ to specify which of the two prizes you would like to win, and the age of your baby or size you which to be sent (you can choose to size up and ‘stash for later’ if you prefer – it’s totally up to you). Two winners will be selected at random, and I will announce them on Thursday 19th June (so you have plenty of time). Boden will then send the five items directly to the two winners. One of them might just be you! Good luck!
So Pretty was started by friends Lucy and Lou in 2014. Based in South London and with five young daughters between them, they wanted to offer a new range of clothes and accessories for girls aged 3-10 years. Inspired by nostalgic and fashion forward fabrics they like to use comfortable, fun and feminine materials that share their love of pretty prints, textures and a touch of sparkle. All their collections are designed by them and made in South London with limited numbers in each range. They work hard to ensure the materials they use are produced fairly, sustainably and as close to home as they can so they benefit local economies as well as the environment. They currently have a sale on, so definitely worth a little look.
