Little Harems

Baby Boy outfit - LITTLE SPREE

1. Emile et Ida T-shirt (3 months-12 years) £16.49 (was £23.56)
2. Louis Louise crepe trousers (3-24 months) £22.75 (were £28.44)
3. Little Mary Nubuck Sandals (sizes 19-24) £44.85 (were £56.06)

Harem pant, cool t-shirt and sweet sandals: the perfect Summer toddler boy outfit. So cute, but still comfortable and practical. In fact, it’s pretty much the perfect Summer outfit for little boys of any age. Both Marlow and Bailey have versions of this outfit – for older boys, just swap in these Gazelle trousers (tried and rested by our boys) and these fisherman sandals.

ps: I always bought Bailey Pom D’api sandals when he was a toddler; I just noticed that these super cute light grey, silver and dark grey ones are all on sale. NHC

Pretty Stripes

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.

Mini Me Denim Jumpsuit

Little Spree - girls denim jumpsuit
Next Denim Jumpsuit, £20.00-£25.00

Little Spree: girls jumpsuit outfit

1. Next Denim Jumpsuit, £20.00-£25.00
2. Simple Kids Cardigan, £60.35 (was £100.58)
3. April Showers Glitter Clogs, £45.00 (were £90.00)

We first spotted this fab jumpsuit quite a while ago (before Christmas in fact), and I have since bought it for Tabitha (she was wearing it yesterday, but before I’d managed to get an Instagram snap of her wearing it, she’d fallen off her bike and it was covered in mud…). It’s great for now as it’s quite a heavy weight denim. Wear with anything from wellies to sandals to Mary Janes to glitter clogs (love these)…

ps: this ruffle sleeveless version is great ‘buy now wear now and later’ option. Just layer a long sleeved tee under until Summer comes…

Tried & Tested Baby Bargains

21 January 2016

Little Spree Baby sale edit

1. Mango Bouclé Wool Coat, £19.99 (was £39.99)
2. Mango Ruffled Dress & Knickers Matching Knickers, £11.49 (was £22.99)
3. Mango Bobble Beanie, £3.99 (was £7.99)
4. Babe & Tess Cotton Romper, £29.03 (was £38.48)
5. Mango Leather Mary Janes, £9.99 (were £19.99)
6. Louis Louise Velvet Trousers, £22.27 (were £37.12)

Today is all about the littlest of little ones, and arguably the cutest of the sales bargains. As with everything we’re posting this week, each piece has been previousy featured on Little Spree at some point. Now a little tip for sale shopping for babies – it’s all about thinking ahead (preferably a year ahead if you can actually get your head around what size you’ll need a year from now – this will probably depend largely on the age of your baby and the amount of sleep you’ve had this week!!). Project yourself into the future and you can make a great sale find work that little bit harder. We’ve often been know to ‘repeat buy’ the exact same things in larger sizes (and not just during sale time either – our favourite Cos cashmere jumper is a case in point). So ladies, size up, stock up, and stash away for next year. You’ll be so glad you did.

ps: a word of warning – don’t stash your sale bargains away too carefully (learn from my mistakes ladies – SC). I’ve been known to stash them away, then completely forget all about them. Not so helpful.

pps: don’t miss the last in our sales fortnight tomorrow. It really is ‘last chance saloon’ for mamas this time!

The Best Of The Sales: Part 1

11 January 2016

Girls Sale

1. Maan Dress, £40.00 (was £80.00)
2. Mango Faux Fur Coat, £26.99 (was £39.99)
3. M&S Chunky Knit Roll Neck, £6.00 (was £15.00)

6. Bonton Tutu, £31.50 (was £45.00)

We’re back! And we don’t know about you, but we’re a bit over the sales already… Well, a little bored of seeing the same old things anyway. So for our sales edit (this week and next – yep two full weeks of gorgeous sales bargains!!) we’ve delved that little bit deeper, and searched just that little bit harder to bring you the pieces that we really feel are worthy of sharing. It’s not enough that it’s just ‘nice’ and on sale – that’s not the way we roll at Little Spree. We still expect the same levels of style as always, and a tempting price reduction. And this time we’ve decided to split our finds into two: the pieces we’ve already seen and loved (and posted), but not necessarily bought (and are now possibly wondering why not?) and the pieces we’ve discovered as we cruise the sales online. So this week is dedicated to the former. So we’re kicking off with the girls. Oh, and for any mamas of boys out there, before you tune out, these super-cool skate shoes are on Bailey’s wish list! You gotta love a boy who can rock a silver trainer…

Christmas Day and beyond

7 December 2015

Girl Party Outfit

1. Louis Louise Frill Dress, £60.07
2. Next Jazz shoes, £14.00-£17.00

After much searching and deliberation (and literally dozens of discarded dresses and tutus…), we settled on this as our favourite girls Christmas Day/party outfit. Festive (well our kind of festive anyway), fun, stylish and cute. And the perfect hi-lo outfit (you can blow the budget on a gorgeous dress if your High Street shoes look as cute as these.
