As you know we’re huge fans of French brand Louis Louise (how many dresses does Tabitha have Sarah..?). We love the delicate charm and simplicity which lends itself to sweet baby bloomers and pretty girls dresses, so much so that you could easily miss their cool boys collection. Not us. We both have our eye on this sweatshirt (also available as a t-shirt) to wear with these trousers that Bailey and Marlow have (for those who asked, they are the ones Bailey wore on Instagram whilst we were in Mexico). Other pieces we’re coveting include the ‘Grand Pere’ shirt (although we can’t decide which colour we like best), and these green denim shorts (the perfect alternative to our favourite blue denim ones).

This is why we don’t like to plan our posts too far in advance – we had this post planned around a certain Gap cotton cream and navy striped sweater with shoulder buttons (my friend and agent, Emma tipped me off about it actually – I was little peeved that I hadn’t seen it myself, but it was in the girls department, rather than the toddlers, and Tabs has only just graduated to Gap girls…). Anyway, the reason I am sharing that with you, is that you may well still be able to find one in a store (it’s sadly now sold out online), so keep you’re eyes peeled… I also saw a little girl wearing it in the playground in Richmond park recently – she was wearing hers with a skinny jean and messy hair and was just running around without a care in the world, obviously totally oblivious to how cool she looked! Is it wrong to cover the style of a seven year old?? So clever Nicky quickly found this cute substitute – ok not as cheap as the original Gap one, but definitely every bit as cool – we love a bit of Bellerose. And the quality is always great. So there you have it – you snooze (or wait to post), you lose. But the great thing is, for everything you miss out on, there’s something better waiting in the wings, just waiting to be discovered…

ps: you’d be forgiven for thinking this was a Mama Spree outfit. Frankly I wish it was!! I want it all. But as luck would have it this Isabel Marant ‘Erwan’ sweater (I’ve shot this for Stella and it’s beyond gorgeous. Quite a ‘neat’ fit though, so I wouldn’t neceaassrily recommend it for the more ample chested mamas out there…)
ps: this Gap sweater that Tabs already has is still available to buy online. I love it, and it also comes in navy. The perfect Spring jumper, and available in all sizes. Oh and it’s also on sale!

When we discover that one of favourite childrens’ (well, strictly speaking it’s officially a girls’ jumper, but let’s just keep that between us…) jumpers goes on sale, we cannot not share that information with you. The only problem? Which colour/s to go for?

ps: a shout out to lovely Lisa at edit58 for the tip-off about the trainers. We love a stylish supermarket find!

Apparently it’s going to be cold and cloudy this week, so we thought we’d bring a little sunshine to your inbox. This is exactly the sort of outfit we love for boys: cool, cosy and practical. It also includes our current colour obsession: ochre – a subconscious longing for warmer climes perhaps? So until the sun decides to make another appearance, you’ll find us staring at this sweatshirt.

ps: although technically a boys post, individually, all these items work just as well for girls.

Stripes and broderie anglaise frills? What could be more perfect? And remember this gorgeous moses basket from Numerro 74? Well here’s a scaled down version for little girls to ferry all their dolls/teddies/mice/bunnies around in mama friendly style. How chic.
Oh, and if the Chloe price tag feels a little steep for these ballet flats (it is, but we just couldn’t resist), we also love this Boden Mary Jane version.
