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 (email@example.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!

ps: we’ll share what we bought for our kids another time…
pps: a little reminder that the H&M Studio collection launches today.
1. Bonton Blouse (3-12 years) £42.64 (was £53.30)
2. Caramel Baby & Child Embroidered Dress (3-10 years) £77.35 (was £96.69
3. Boden Cardigan (1-12 years) £23.60 (was £29.50)
4. Boden Gladiator Sandals (sizes 22-39) £18.55-£25.20 (were £26.50-£31.50)
5. Bonton ‘Happy’ Hairclip (sold as part of a set of two) £9.88 (was £12.35)
6. Le Temps Des Cerise Denim Skirt (10-16 years) £27.22 (was £54.44)
These are a few of our favourite sales pieces for girls. We always make the most of the sales, particularly for the more expensive brands that we don’t usually indulge in that often. We’ve also included these fab Boden glads (don’t forget they also come in leopard print, as styled by Tabitha…) as they are such a great buy, plus this cardigan (why is it so hard to find nice, affordable girls’ cardigans??).
Some more sale bargains: Carament Bleu frilled Breton, Louis Louise sun dress, Bonton cat basket, Bellerose lace dress, Babe & Tess striped all-in-one, and Tabitha’s favourite ‘Alice in Wonderland dress’ from Boden.
1. Louis Louise Floral Dress With Gold Thread (2-12 years) £43.40 (was £61.85)
2. Boden Leopard Print Sandals (sizes 22-39) £26.50-£34.50
Today’s post is brought to you via Tabitha. This is the exact outfit that she styled (some of you may remember my ‘smash & grab’ at the Louis Louise Paris store last May?) and wore last weekend. It’s relatively pared down by her usual standards (she loves a bit of a J.Cew-esque mash-up!) A floral sprig print and leopard print? Hmmm. But she was right, it’s perfect. Louis Louise is definitely one of our favourite French brands for Tabs and the boys. Smallable also have this dress in pink, and we love the striped pink and mint versions too (and all on sale). And this gorgeous romper from last week’s post is also reduced. Oh and Tabs also has the gold version of the Boden glads.

ps: Marlow’s (girls. but he doesn’t need to know that) silver sandals that he was wearing on Instagram are also from Boden.
1. Louis Louise Floral (3024 months) £51.00 2. Numero 74 Powder (3-12 months) £24.05 3. Mothercare Dobby (0-18 months) £12.00-£13.00 4. Gap Railroad Stripe (0-24 months) £14.95
1. Gap Pocket (0-12 months) £12.95 2. Gap Railroad Stripe (0-24 months) £16.95 3. Hundred Pieces Striped (3-24 months) £16.38 (was £27.30)
4. Numero 74 Grey-Blue (3-12 months) £24.05
There few things cuter than a baby romper, and we keep seeing gorgeous ones everywhere we look! Here are our favourites for baby girls and boys…

pps: we didn’t include these two in our edit because the pictures just do not do them justice. But in person, they are beyond adorable! I saw them in the store a couple of weeks ago and literally stood staring at them (no joke)… Pure cotton stripe and pure cotton spot (in the prettiest dusky apricot colour). SC
pps: and how about a romper for a special occasion? How sweet is this one?
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!
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 it comes to kids party invitations, we’re onboard with the ease and convenience of electronic communication, but there’s always something special about receiving a handwritten note, especially to announce an important event or to say thank you. If you’re with us, take a look at the beautifully printed stationary at Papier.
