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…

Girls Sale Picks

1. Miller Quiver T-Shirt, £21.00 (was £30.00)

This week on Little Spree is dedicated entirely to the sales. We’re kicking off with our girls edit – the prettiest pieces around (with the odd Breton stripe thrown in for good measure). The sales are where we pick up the things that we might not necessarily buy because of the (full) price tag. But during sale time all bets are off! You can get some amazing bargains if you know where to look (and if you don’t, that’s what we’re here for), and it’s always lovely to have a few ‘special’ pieces to mix in with the high street finds. After all, isn’t that how we all dress?
Here are a few other bargains we’ve found: this Mango blouse; these Mango sandals; this Mango blouse; this Mango dress; and this Mango sweater (all with 30-40% off at the moment with this code: 6VIP11); this Louis Louise blouse; and these Boden Mary Janes (in gold).

christmas day dressing

11 December 2014

girls party

1. Miller ‘Pop’Jumper, £85.00
2.. Zara Sequinned Skirt, £17.99
3. M&S ‘Best Of British’ Pure Wool Coat, £80.00
4. Gap Velvet Mary Jane Flats, £14.95

This is a great Christmas Day/party look that’s not too blingy. Cosy, cute, with just a smattering of sequins. Perfect.
It’s a different vibe altogether, but I just ordered this robin jumper for Tabs and it’s SO sweet. Christmas-y, but in an adorable old fashioned way. She will definitely be busting it out with a skinny jean (possibly even dungarees if I can bribe her!!) and a gold Mary Jane.

Boys party

1. Mango Batman Sweatshirt, £16.99
2. Zara Velvet Blazer, £45.99
3. Next Super Skinny Jeans, £13.00-£19.00
4. Converse High-Tops, £30.00

Whether it’s a birthday, wedding or Christmas it’s the same dilemma: how to make your little boy look dressed up but not overdressed? Oh how I’ve envied mothers of little girls at these times, but we think we’ve come up with a cool Christmas solution here. We also like this grey jumper from Next if the Batman sequins are a step too far; and these amazing boots if these hi-tops aren’t far enough.

Girl cable jumper

1. Mini Boden Cosy Cable Throw-On, £31.00-£36.00 (was £35.00-£40.00, SHOP NOW
2. M&S Cotton Embroidered Skater Skirt, £16.00-£20.00, SHOP NOW
3. Zara Ribbed Tights, £5.99, SHOP NOW
4. Start-Rite Gold Leather Mary Janes, £48.00 (were £60.00), SHOP NOW

We love this chunky cable knit sweater (it has the cutest pom pom on the hood, which you can’t see in this pic). And I bought this gorgeous skater skirt for Tabitha back in the Summer. Perfect with or without tights. It really reminds me of the Miller ones that I bought her last year in that amazing Elias & Grace sale.
