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.

Boden boys denim shorts - Little Spree

1. Maison Lebiche Later Aligator Tee (2-12 years) £22.75
2. EasyRead Time Teacher Watch £19.95
3. Boden Denim Shorts (2-12 years) £22.50-£26.50
4. Pom D’Api Leather Sandals (sizes 24-34) £51.35

We accidentally left Bailey’s watch on holiday recently. Whilst looking for a replacement, I came across the ‘Easy Read Time Teacher’. It’s not possible to see all the clever details here, but all the minutes are named, the screen is split into ‘past’ and ‘to’ as well as other useful annotations like ‘o’clock’ next to the number 12. I also think it has quite cool styling – the shape and fabric strap remind me of military pilot watches. Be sure to impart this information if you think it will encourage them to wear it!.

Ladies, you spoke, we listened. So here it is: our first ‘Tween Spree’ post. There are some lovely pieces out there for older girls so we thought we’d start you off (yes, we’ll be doing more, and not just for girls) with a round-up of some of our favourites. These denim cut-offs and green utility jacket are mini-must-have pieces, and we just love these cute accessories (they would make great gifts too). Oh, and just between us Mamas, those leather woven sandals go up to size 41, so, if somehow your shoe size ends up in the basket, our lips are sealed!

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!

Dinosaur Junior: The Sequel

24 March 2016

Boys Dinosaur Sweatshirt Little Spree

1. Mango Sweatshirt, £9.99
2. Mango Sweatshirt, £9.99
3. Mango Sweatshirt, £9.99

It can be hard to find ‘character’ pieces that our children like (and we like!) which is why we (and you) loved the Boden dinosaur sweatshirt so much. We know how disappointing it was when it sold out (although having just checked ages 9-10 and 11-12 are now available). So, we’ve been keeping our eye open for something we like just as much; what a relief then to find these dinosaur sweatshirts. It’s the scribbled images that make them cooler than your average printed top. Plus they have helpful poppers which allows you to ease (rather than yank) them over your little one’s head. They’re available in 3 months-3 years, but don’t worry mums of older boys, Boden have recreated the ‘jurassic dinosaur’ print from their sweatshirt and made this fisherman’s hat (Bailey loves his) and these board shorts. Both are currently available in most sizes and are in the sale, but please be quick, otherwise we’ll have to start looking for replacement dinosaur hats and shorts too!

ps: on our pre-historic travels we also found these sleepsuits and Summer pjs….

pps: Bailey and Marlow also have (and love) these dinopants!
