So many lovely things in the baby collections at John Lewis at the moment. They have some gorgeous new brands that we want to share with you. We are particularly drawn to Wheat Baby and Serendipity (the colours!!). In fact, here are a few more pieces that we haven’t included in the pics – this striped cardigan, rabbit print dress, checked trousers, striped dress, and alpacca hat (in three gorgeous colours). All super-cute. We also really like these Michelle Carslund posters – perfect for your little one’s nursery/bedroom, or for a lovely gift.

Olivier Baby & Kids & Little Spree

8 September 2016

Little Spree and Olivier Baby & Kids

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 (katie@olivierbaby.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!

Album Di Familiglia Pepe Baby Booties, £40.00

Aarrh…. these booties bring back such sweet memories of Bailey as a chubby baby. Whenever I indulged, this brand was often the cause. There’s no doubt it’s on the more expensive end of the spectrum but so is the quality. I recently passed on an Album Di Familiglia top that I bought for Bailey when he was three, and despite years of wear and washing it still looked like new. That said, there are some seriously cute pram shoes on the high street too – these are some of our favourites: Gap cosy Mary JanesNext star print pram shoes; Next ballerina pram shoesGap fringed bow moccasins; Gap cosy lace booties; Gap Mary Jane ballet flatsGap flannel sneakers; Gap knitted booties; Mango fringed suede booties; and Zara Home knitted booties.

Baby Boy Outfit

1. Boden Cable Knit Jumper, £24.00-£26.00
2. Jellycat Huge Bashful Bunny, £45.00
3. Louis Louise Trousers, £43.88
4. Zara Home Kids Friged Booties, £25.99

Cute, cosy and super-stylish. Calling all mamas of baby boys! Oh, and as for the ‘huge bashful bunny’? This has got to be one of the softest, cosiest, cuddliest bunny you could ever buy (it’s just a bonus that it looks good too!). Tabitha has all the sizes and still loves them to bits. So I guess you could call it an ‘invtestment’ bunny?

Kin By John Lewis Baby Harem Pants, £9.60

Boys harem pant

1. Gold Baby T-shirt, £32.00
2. Kin By John Lewis Harem Pants (0-18 months), £9.60
3. Mango Suede Moccasins, £22.99

Another day, another harem baby (told you were were obsessed!), and another way to wear them (for babies this time). We love this emerald green worn with grey. And who could resist these baby moccasins to complete the look? And if you’re in the mood for a harem, these Mango ones are really sweet too.

Baby Boy

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!
