Next girls linen romper - Little Spree

1. Next Linen Blend Playsuit (3 months-6 years), £13.00-£16.00
2. Mango Textured Cotton Cardigan (1 month-3 years), £15.99
3. Mango Metallic Strap Sandals (sizes 3-7), £19.99

We LOVE this outfit. In fact the muted colours, soft textures, and what have to be the cutest metallic sandals (they have a sweet peep-toe) makes this our perfect Summer outfit for a toddler girl. It’s worth noting that this pretty grey romper starts at age three months but goes right up six years (Tabitha has it). This voluminus style looks just as cute (styled the same way) for slightly older girls too and is also the perfect piece for anyone wishing to dress siblings in a similar way.

ps: congratulations to our friends over at Scandi Mini – five years old today!

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.

lace & denim

Mothercare Denim Playsuit With Lace (18 months-8 years)
£12.00-£13.00  SHOP NOW
It does seem a little strange to be writing about Summer playsuits from the Inner Hebrides (I am in Skye, then the Isle of Harris shooting for the next 8 days), but that’s the way we roll at Little Spree…). I do love a playsuit (as does Tabitha), and this one’s mix of cool denim chambray and pretty lace is spot-on. And no need to wait until the warm weather (although I wouldn’t recommend wearing it here quite yet!!) – just layer with knitted tights and a long sleeved tee until then. The only downside to the playsuit? Not great for an urgently needed trip to the loo…

day dreaming…

Gap Leopard Peplum Print One-Piece (12 months-5 years)
£10.95  SHOP NOW
As I sit here typing this, all I can see from my window is wind, rain, and the onset of evening (it’s 4.30pm). Hey ho. But as I skipped through the Gap website just now, all I could see was this, completely adorable all-in-one (I’m filing it under ‘beachwear’) that is simply too cute for words. And all it makes me think of is the Summer and holidays… So although it may be completely inappropriate right now, that just makes me love it all the more! We all need a few daydreams to get us through this never-ending Winter. I will be snapping one of these up for Tabs, hanging it up on display in her room, and dreaming of Summer…

ps: whilst I was busy daydreaming, I also found this gorgeous ‘baby bubble’. Roll on Summer (although this would look super-cute now layered with knitted tights and a cashmere jumper/cardigan)! This is also the perfect time to buy a few baby gifts if any of your friends are pregnant (or perhaps you are?). You can get some amazing things (and not to mention bargains!) in the tail end of the sales, and just stash them away until the due date/s.

pps: and talking of sale bargains, these fab boys’ cashmere crew-neck jumpers from Mango that I posted a while back are now half price. And this striped onesie from The Little White Company was one of my best buys of the Winter (Marlow is already on his second one – he grew out of the first). And it’s now an incredible £6.90 (yes really!) in the sale!! I’m tempted to buy him another one for next Winter…
