Boys Sale Round-Up

30 June 2016

Boys sale round-up - LILTTLE SPREE

1. Carrement Beau T-Shirt (2-12 years)  £24.00 (was £30.00)
2. Mango Sunglasses £6.49 (were £12.99
3. Louis Louise Jumper (3 months-12 years) £56.31 (was £80.44)
4. Sunchild Shorts (2-12 years) £42.25 (were £52.81)
5. Zef Star Bag £35.75 (was £44.69)
6. Pepe Suede Sandals (sizes 24-34) £42.25 (were £52.81)
7. Hartford Henley T-Shirt (2-16 years) £27.79 (was £46.31)

As well as filling the gaps in their Summer wardrobe, Summer sales are also an opportunity to make a (cheap chic) start on the season ahead. For now we love these khaki green shorts and navy sandals for their classic versatility,and we’re making a start on our boys Autumn wish-lists with this Louis Louise navy jumper and these long sleeve t-shirts. Well we say Autumn, but actually long sleeve t-shirts (along with rain macs and wellies) seem to be essential Summer-wear so far. Still, we remain optimistic that short sleeve t-shirts will be required – I have bought Bailey this ukulele one from Hartford and this lovely Bellerose grey linen one. For those days where it’s chilly, then sunny, hot then chilly, sunny, rainy and chilly again, we’ll be layering them under this Babe & Tess navy sweatshirt, and for really chilly days this Hartford cosy fleece lined grey one.

Mini Marant: buttons & stripes

21 April 2016

Mini Marant striped sweater - Little Spree
Bellerose Lurex Button Sweater, £57.00

Mini Marant Stripe Jumper - Little Spree

1. Bellerose Lurex Button Sweater, £57.00
2. Zara Raffia Cross Body Bag, £17.99
3. Gap 1969 Flared Jeans, £10.99 (were £22.95)
4. Pepe Tassel Sandals, £82.00

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!

Not So Little Shop

31 March 2016

The Newly Re-Stocked Little Shop - Little Spree

The sweetest sequin basket, (a tasteful) Batman sweatshirt, cool khaki cut-offs, the cutest crocheted dress (Tabitha’s is on its way), and probably one of our favourite logos tops of all time (we’ve already ordered a couple as gifts): the Little Shop has been re-stocked!

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!

Baby Knits

Little Spree: baby cardigan
Boden Crochet Boats Cardigan (0-4 years), £27.50-£29.50

If you have (or know of) a cute baby boy, make the most of being able to dress him in equally cute jumpers and cardigans before he starts complaining that “it’s not cashmere”, “that’s for girls”, or indeed “it hurts” (if it’s not cashmere!!). Here’s some more ‘enjoy them while you can’ options from Bonton, Next, Easy, Mamas & Papas, Bonton, and Next.

Pretty Stripes

15 February 2016

Little Spree
Gap Stripe Sweater (12 months-5 years), £19.95

Little Spree girls outfit

1. Gap Stripe Sweater (12 months-5 years), £19.95
2. Gap Skinny Jeans (12 months-5 years), £17.95
3. Numero 74 Dolls Moses Basket, £50.74
4. Chloe Ballet Flats (sizes 26-35), £130.00

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.
