18 January 2016

Little Spree boys sales picks

1. Miller Shirt, £24.00 (was £60.00)
2. Gap Peacoat, £29.99 (was £49.95)

In our second week of sale posts (trust us, there are still plenty of great bargains to be nabbed if you know where to find them) we’re focusing on the ones that nearly got away – the pieces we have already featured on Little Spree in previous posts or in the ‘Little Shop’ that we still love (whether we’ve already bought them or not). So if you’ve had any ‘coulda woulda shoulda’ moments, this is the week for you. Here are some reminders: Hoodies, henleys, hats..., Elias & Grace: treat week for boys, Coats: the boys edit, Someday soon…, Beach boy. And who could forget Bailey’s favourite logo sweatshirt (sadly the navy has sold out, but we managed to track this grey version down). And here are a few more ‘as seen on Little Spree’ bargains worth checking out from Bellerose, Mango, Scotch ShrunkMango and Converse. See you tomorrow for the girls.

Little Boys in Bow Ties

8 December 2015

Boy Party Outfit

1. Next Shirt And Bow Tie, £11.00-£12.00
2. Monsoon Velvet Jacket, £45.00
3. Mango Jeans, £14.99
4. Converse Black Rubber Boots, £35.00

There are two groups of people who seem to carry off a bow tie easily: the very young and the very old (oh, and anyone wearing a tux).We love this soft gingham version for a boys party outfit as it takes a classic look and makes it fun (and therefore more likely that your little man will want to wear it!). Not necessarily how we would expect the more mature man to wear his bow tie perhaps (although we’re not against it), we’d style it with jeans, a velvet jacket and these cool hi-tops.

ps remember this super cute Little Marc Jacobs shirt and bow tie that we posted on Instagram after the Alex & Alexa press day? Now in stock.

Have you heard of the ‘Mango Outlet’? Until recently neither had we! Not to be confused with the ‘sale’ section of Mango, this is an entirely different website dedicated to their previous collections, with everything at hugely discounted prices! Imagine our excitement to find some of the items we wish we’d bought (you snooze, and maybe you don’t lose after all…) now available with up to 70% off!  Not ones to keep such a find to ourselves, we’ve scoured the site for our favourite items to share with you. Here are some other faves for the girls: this dress; this sweater; this cardigan; this sweater; this blouse; these moccasin boots; and this pom pom necklace.And for the boys: these sweaters; these hi-tops; this Henley sweater; this jacket;  this sweater; and this parka with detachable lining.
Now let’s keep this as our little secret, ok?

ps: And of course we haven’t forgotten about you! More Mango Outlet (crazy) bargains on Mama Spree tomorrow…

we’re loving a harem pant right now…

28 May 2015

CharlieAndGus Harem Pants, £16.75

Grey Harem Pant

1. Mango Mao Collar Shirt (3-14 years), £14.99
2. Mango Cardigan (3-14 years), £14.99
3. CharlieAndGus Harem Pants (0-4 years), £16.75
4. Sun San ‘Surfer’ Sandals (sizes 22-36), £38.00

Question: what’s warmer than denim cut-offs, but cooler than jeans?
Answer: a harem pant!

These grey ones are very similar to a pair I bought Bailey last year. I love the fact that they can be worn all year round (in Winter Bailey wore his with hi-tops, a sweatshirt and beanie hat, and this is how he’s wearing them now). Not only that but they are soft and comfortable (so no complaining) and they have survived tree climbing, football, long haul flights, camping, and all the ‘playing’ that’s been thrown at them. I think I’ve just talked myself into buying another pair…

baby stripes

30 April 2015

Baby Stripe outfit

1. Next Trousers With Braces (3 months-6 years), £12.00-£13.00
2. Louis Louse Crepe Kurta Shirt (6-18 months), £31.73
3. Saltwater Seawee  Sandals (sizes UK 1-3 toddler), £35.00

We are a little bit obsessed with this label, Louis Louise at the moment. This shirt really reminds me of an Isabel Marant one I bought a couple of Summers ago (and still going strong) – faded blue and white stripes, cheesecloth fabric, Grandad style collar… This is really just a scaled down version. We saw it when we visited the gorgeous Elias & Grace Primrose Hill store last Friday, so can confirm it’s every bit as cute in person too. And we’re also getting a little obsessed with how many great things we keep finding in Next Kids. Not necessarily one of our favourite high street pit-stops, but fast becoming one (I did a bit of a ‘smash and grab’ in the Westfield store the other day – will share in another post). Marlow also now has these chambray ‘birks’ as well as Bailey and they are so great. And just £11.00!
