Mama Spree: what a difference a knot makes…

French Connection Hitch knot sweatshirt - Little Spree
French Connection Knot Sweatshirt, £55.00

How to style a grey sweatshirt - Little Spree

1. French Connection Knot Sweatshirt, £55.00
2. Mango Straight Joe Jeans, £29.99
3. Topshop 60’s Style Sunglasses, £16.00
4. Topshop Sling Back Shoes, £56.00

We’d rather not count the number of grey sweatshirts in our combined wardrobes (let’s just agree there’s more than a few). The reason: versatility. The humble grey sweatshirt, in our opinion, is a wardrobe essential. You’ll find us wearing them casually over dresses, with jeans, and more formally with trousers and skirts (they’re the perfect thing for toning down an outfit which might otherwise make you feel a little overdressed). We love the knot detail on this, our latest find, especially when paired with these cropped jeans and gold Gucci inspired slingbacks (which we both have on our Summer wish-lists). Yes, that’s right ladies, it’s time to start thinking about de-booting and showing a bit of ankle…!

soft & sweet

Boden Cosy Pointelle Pack £27.20-£28.80

As if it wasn’t cute enough, this sweet, soft play set also comes in an adorable bird print and both have matching printed bags (you might remember them from our Instagram feed after the Boden press day a few months ago). We’re big fans of these little drawstring bags  – so useful for keeping things organised in your nappy bag and beyond (I still use them to put Bailey’s toys in, and Tabitha has a huge collection of them!). They’re sold as layering pieces but we think they’re pretty enough to be worn on their own, just add this knitted jacket or one of these cute cardigans that we featured last week.

ps: don’t forget your discount code (8X5H) for 20% off (plus free postage) is valid until the end of today.

we can’t resist a cable knit

8 September 2015

Boys boden 2

1. Boden Viking Jumper, £24.00-£28.00
2. Mango Skinny Jeans, £19.99
3. Petit Bateau Woool & Cotton T-shirt, £20.00
4. Next Gold Hi-tops, £17.00-£20.00

Whether it’s for us, the kids or for Daddy, we can’t resist a cable knit. This classic grey one from Mini Boden in our latest favourite and is on our ‘wish list’ for Bailey and Marlow. We’re hoping the fact that it’s named the ‘Viking’ jumper will endear them to wear it, just as we’ve styled it here: with skinny jeans and hi-tops. As the days grow cooler we’ll be adding  this thermal top from Petite Bateau (Bailey had this last one last year and it’s perfect for layering). Tempted? We are, especially as there’s 20% off today (plus free p&p) with code 8X5H. We only wish it came in mummy and daddy sizes too!

Little Spree is taking a little holiday…

21 July 2015

We are both having a much-needed break from Little Spree to spend some quality holiday time with our families over the Summer (and to give our eyes a rest from looking at all that Isabel Marant and Mango (we’re not sure we can even tell the difference anymore…), and our fingers a rest from all the late-night bargain hunting!!). In the meantime if you’re missing us, you can see what we’re up to (and sometimes what we’re wearing – although we can guarantee there will definitely be no bikini selfies!) on Instagram (@littlespree); and don’t forget the Little Spree shop (for you and your little ones). It’s open 24-7!
