Stylish, practical baby outfit - Little Spree
Pequeno Tocon Navy Footed Leggings, £22.75

Stylish baby boy outfit - Little Spree

1. Armor Lux Loctudy T-Shirt, £17.55
2. Jellycat Polar Bear Rattle, £12.48
3. Pequeno Tocon Navy Footed Leggings, £22.75

This is exactly the sort of outfit we dressed our children in when they were babies  (including Tabitha – we love navy for girls). It’s simple, stylish and these footed leggings mean no sock or shoe requirements. A perfect prêt-à-porter outfit for those busy or tired days when adding two extra items into the mix has the potential to push you over the edge. It also avoids the trouser tug-of-war to keep their little legs warm because their trousers have ridden up above their socks. If any of this sounds all too familiar, don’t worry, you’re not limited to one pair, they also come in ivory and pink.

Brio (Builder) Bargains

7 April 2016

Brio Builder at reduced prices - Little Spre
Brio Helicopter Set, £16.99

Think a beautifully made, wooden version of Meccano and you’re in the right ball park. If you’re not familiar with ‘Brio Builder’ yet this is the perfect time to try it as the price tag for these toys can be high (although we would say absolutely worth it as this is one of those toys that grows with your child and is practically indestructible). Bailey and Marlow are already big fans: they love to create not only the intended vehicle but recreate something of their own (they especially like using the cute little tools that comes with the sets). So, you can imagine our delight to find T.K Maxx selling this helicopter (duly snapped up for Bailey), this dune buggy and and an aeroplane (that sadly has sold out online) at a huge discount. We checked this morning and they still have a few left so even if toys aren’t on your ‘to-do’ list, this is a great ‘buy now stash for later’ gift. Actually that’s a very good idea….

ps: a few more disocunted Brio toys here (how sweet is the coffee set?).

Fifi Lapin for Mamas & Papas - Little Spree

1. Quilted Jacket, £23.20 (was £29.00)
2. Embroidered Dress, £19.20 (was £24.00)
3. Pocket Dress, £19.20 (was £24.00)
4. Doll, £12.00 (was £15.00)
5. Bobble Cardigan, £15.20 (was £19.00)
6. Spot Sweater, £12.80 (was £16.00)

When we were re-stocking the Little Shop last week, we were having a quick snoop (as you do) on the Mamas & Papas website. Suddenly I stumbled across these ‘too cute for words’ pieces from their recent collaboration with Fifi Lapin (which I must confess, I’d completely forgotten about – how??). Each piece is adorable as the next, and all with a much appreciated 20% off! Our favourite kind of ‘stumble’…

The Great Easter Style Hunt

20 March 2016

Little Spree: Easter style for babies and children

1. Oeuf NYC Bunny Ears Sweater, £57.85
2. Stella McCartney Kids Bunny Babygrow, £43.00
3. Fabelab Travel Sized Plush Toy, £21.06
4. Stella McCartney Knitted Blanket With Bunnies, £80.00
5. Maileg Fluffy Bunny, £32.00

It’s hard to resist a cute Easter themed purchase when there are little ones in the house. We’ve focused on babies in this post (after all, they provide the easiest to coax into a bunny-themed outfit…), then added this actual bunny (no 5) in at last minute. Marlow has this exact one and he LOVES it (and let me tell you, he is every bit as picky about his soft toys as he is about his cashmere ply count!!). It’s the softest, snuggliest bunny you could ever wish for and he’s cuddling it right now as I finish writing this post. And who doesn’t need a bunny romper, bunny ears hat, bunny booties, bunny pyjamas, set of three bunny sleep suits, and this adorable felt bunny ears and tail set in their lives this Easter?

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.

Mamas & Papas collaborate with Liberty London

28 September 2015

Special Edition Liberty Collaboration Armadillo Stroller, £299.00

Liberty Print

1. Liberty Wiltshire 4 Piece Shirt, Trousers & Braces Set, £46.00
2. Liberty Wild Flower Tunic and Knitted Leggings Set, £36.00

Mamas & Papas have collaborated with Liberty London to create the prettiest collection of children’s fashion, interiors and strollers (with matching accessories) in not one, but six different gorgeous Liberty prints. The exclusive range from two great British brands combines the trend-led style of Mamas & Papas with the British heritage of one of our favourite department stores and creators of some of our all-time favourite prints for children, the mighty Liberty. What’s not to love? Could this pushchair we any cuter (or chic-er for that matter)? Ok, so it’s definitely more of a girls’ collection than a boys, but surely every little boy could do with a Liberty print bow tie in their lives? We also love this blanket; these cushions; this musical cot toy (a lovely, inexpensive gift for a new baby); this reversible buggy liner (if you don’t want to go the whole hog with the pushchair); this dress; this rocking horse; this pram suit; and last but not least, even the humble bib has had a Liberty makeover.

Baby Girl Outfit

1. Mango Ruffle Dress, £22.99
2. Bonton Lyon Baby Cardigan, £50.00
3. Martin Pederson Baby Tights, £13.00
4. M&S Pull Along Duck, £17.00

We adore the ruffles on the shoulders of this dress (very Isabel Marant!), and we love mixing girlish pink with a more unexpected colour, like this khaki-brown. And who could resist this cute pull-along duck…

Baby Boy Outfit

1. Boden Cable Knit Jumper, £24.00-£26.00
2. Jellycat Huge Bashful Bunny, £45.00
3. Louis Louise Trousers, £43.88
4. Zara Home Kids Friged Booties, £25.99

Cute, cosy and super-stylish. Calling all mamas of baby boys! Oh, and as for the ‘huge bashful bunny’? This has got to be one of the softest, cosiest, cuddliest bunny you could ever buy (it’s just a bonus that it looks good too!). Tabitha has all the sizes and still loves them to bits. So I guess you could call it an ‘invtestment’ bunny?

Maileg Bunny

1. Maileg Nicky Rabbit, £31.00
2. Maileg Axel Rabbit, £40.00
3. Maileg Helen Bunny, £31.00

As Bailey had shown absolutely no interest in the various bears, elephants and bunnies that he had been bought over the years I decided to give them away. Fast forward six months: “where are my bears and bunnies?”. Eeek!  So it was with a slight sense of guilt that I bought him a Maileg bunny at Easter. In some ways these bunnies (and mice, foxes, cats, deer…) are more like dolls than soft toys as they all have amazing outfits that you can take off and change. I wasn’t sure how Bailey (a boy who likes to  play with toys that fly or can be crashed) would react to such a toy, but ‘Easter’ as his bunny was aptly named is very much loved. The only down side is Easter gets more cuddles than me!

ps: these rabbits and bunnies are included in ‘treat week’ at Elias & Grace, so have 20% off until midnight tonight.

Baby Boy

1. Babe & Tess Fine Stripes Onesie (3-24 months), £40.50
2. Maileg Squirrel, from Elias & Grace, £28.00
3. Louis Louise Baby Slippers, from Elias & Grace (6-12 months), £38.00

It’s hard to believe that Bailey was ever small enough to fit in to an outfit this size, but when he was, this is how I liked to dress him: comfortable, simple, stylish, done (not something I always achieved I might add!). If there’s a cooler baby slipper out there I’ve yet to find it – I adore these Louis Louise ones. In fact Sarah and I are pretty much obsessed with this brand at the moment. For those with the breaking strain of a kit-kat for well priced, cool kids clothes (i.e. us) do not look up this brand!

Boys stripe top

1. Miller Quiver T-Shirt (2-14 years), £30.00
2. Next Distressed Shorts (3-16 years), £10.00-£15.00
3. Hedgehog Bow & Arrow Set, £10.00
4. Bensimon Tennis Plimsoles (sizes 27-35), £28.00

With the exception of the bow (which we suspect Bailey and Marlow would enjoy much more than we would) this outfit encompasses all our summer favourites: stripes (this may well be our favourite Breton tee for the Summer), denim shorts and cool canvas shoes. In fact we predict that all the outfits our boys will be wearing this summer will be some version of this one!

Boys sunglasses

1. Mango Henley T-Shirt, £3.99 (was £6.99)
2. Tegu 6 Piece Pocket Pouch, £15.99
3. Gap Lived-In Khakis, £16.95
4. Next Corkbed Sandals, £11.00-£13.00

I recently saw an outfit that Marlow had put together, all by himself, which mixed blue and tobacco colours. It was such a cute colour combination that I thought I should share it; thank you for the inspiration Marlow! Master Clark finished his ensemble off with a pair of sandals similar to the ones here. I know when Bailey sees them he will want some just like Marlow, so watch out for more matching shoe pictures. Oh, and I’m reliably informed that the Tegu blocks (suggested by a lovely Little Spree reader) are the toy of choice in the Clark-Lloyd household which is high praise indeed!

mothercare & tusk

Mothercare Tusk Branch Shelf, £29.99

Tusk is a charity that we really believe in. All three of our kids LOVE animals, and have a pretty impressive collective knowledge of them (although not necessarily when the cameras are rolling, but more of that later…). Tusk supports the conservation of wildlife, sustainable development and education in Africa. Mothercare is working together with them to help save endangered animals. Which can only be a good thing can’t it? So when we saw the Tusk and Mothercare collaboration at the Mothercare press day back in November, we couldn’t wait to share it with you. The prices, are (as you would imagine from Mothercare) fantastic, and there are some really sweet pieces. And the best bit is that 4% of all the sales goes directly to Tusk. So these are almost guilt-free purchases!
We love this branch shelf! And who says it has to go in a child’s room anyway? It would look great in any room… We also like the teepee; this cushion; these wall stickers; and this duvet set.

Oh yes, and if you fancy a laugh, watch this! Mothercare asked all three of our kids to take part in this little film about conservation. Bailey and Tabitha actually didn’t make the final cut, and Marlow went a little ‘off piste’ (he was talking about the leopard print lining of his favourite Bellerose coat), but it’s pretty sweet. But the little boy who talks about the gorillas is so cute, and totally steals the show as far as we’re concerned. It make us laugh every time!

Easter is just around the corner, so we are sharing out favourite festive finds. This was a hard edit – there are just so many cute things around. Here are some more that we couldn’t squeeze into the pictures… The White Company dress up set; The White Company Easter garland; Meri Meri Easter garland kit; this Easter bunny bag; these personalised Easter egg bags; this Maileg set of bunny decorations (I have these from last Easter and have kept them on display all year round – they look so sweet); this Easter egg hunt bunny bag; these Easter decorations (if you follow us on Instagram, you will have seen me posting them from Petersham Nurseries last week); this personalised card (if you are an Easter card sender – I’m, but Nicky is); and this Stella McCartney jumper is a navy version of the above one, but on sale if you’re looking for a slightly less guilty purchase.

Sarah & Nicky xx

ps: Pat The Bunny is celebrating its 75th anniversary (we went along to the the Bonpoint event in Harrods on Saturday). It’s the sweetest book for babies. And it’s Julia Restoin Roitfeld’s favourite book to read to her daughter, Romy. Super-chic.

1. Kin By John Lewis Dungaree Set, £18.00
2. M&S Pure Cashmere Cardigan, £35.00
3. Anne Claire Petit Lamb Music Box, £36.45
4. Minnetonka Fringed Booties, £40.00

Generally speaking we’re not fans of the ‘set’. You know the ones – where they cleverly put an outfit together, usually for a baby, so you don’t need to worry about what goes with what? So they are well-intentioned, but generally pretty naff. We usually find it frustrating when we only like one of the pieces (as is often the case), but then feel reluctant to buy the entire outfit just to wear one thing. Maybe we just don’t like being told how to style an outfit?? Anyway, occasionally we are pleasantly surprised, and this is one of those occasions. How cute is this striped dungaree set?? If you aren’t familiar with the Kin collection by John Lewis, you should definitely check it out. And whilst we were online, we also saw and liked this dungaree set from Mini Club at Boots and this three piece outfit from M&S. Sometimes it’s good to be proven wrong.

Have you been into the baby department at M&S recently? It’s had a bit of a makeover (I had a tour of the newly refurbished kids department in the Westfield store, and I have to say, I was pretty impressed). Forget just popping in to grab a pack of white cotton sleepsuits after a mad dash around the food hall – you are going to want everything! The ‘baby shop’ now features everything you could ever need for your baby from stylish clothing (we are obsessed with the cashmere all-in-ones – we challenge anyone not to fall in love with the grey one) to gorgeous, chic nursery furniture (who knew?). We’ve rounded up our favourites (above), but here are some other things that we couldn’t cram into the pictures, but that we’ve also seen and loved:
This two piece cotton knitted star top and joggers; this 5 pack of pure cotton star bodysuits; this 4 piece pure cotton assorted t-shirt and leggings outfit; this fabric giraffe; these knitted poufs; this star print snowsuit; and this knitted elephant soft toy. You can even buy brands such as Baby Bjorn (baby carriers, bouncy chairs, travel coats…); Avent (bottles, breast pumps, thermometers…) and Dr Brown’s (sterilisers, bottles…). And check out this chic high chair (and such a great price)? It really is a one-stop shop.

Who says socks and sandals are a nerdy no-go? Not us. Nothing cuter!

ps: I have been scouring the shops, searching for the (Barbie sized) Elsa doll for Tabitha for Christmas (from Santa), but no luck. I was certainly not expecting to find one on the Selfridges website. But I did, and now Elsa is winging her way to Richmond… Phew!

You still have a couple of weeks, but we like to get organised early. So we’ve ordered our cute Halloween costumes and they are on their way. So now that just leaves the sweet little extras that make it all the more fun… We’re loving these personalised trick or treating bags; this pumpkin window sticker; this pumpkin piñata; this door sign; these window stickers; these balloons; this bat card; and this light-up pumpkin (ok, so it’s not the real deal, but I bought one last year, and it looked pretty great – I’ve also bought the mini ones this year).

3. H&M Cotton Shorts, £5.99
4. New Papy Sandals, £48.00 (were £80.00)

Love this colour of this top with white (don’t worry – the price of the shorts reflects how laid back you can be about getting them dirty, but they do look cool though don’t they?). And you don’t get more ‘lo-fi’ than this super-cute wooden mobile phone (complete with chalk and earphone erasers)! Love it.

Fisher Price Music Box Record Player (suitable from 12 months plus)
£30.00  SHOP NOW
I had one of these when I was little, and it was one of my favourite toys ever. I bought an original one for Tabitha and Marlow on Ebay a couple of years ago, and they absolutely love it. They play with it almost every day. No need to trawl through eBay now that Fisher Price has recently started making them again, closely based on the 1971 original design (it looks almost identical to ours). It’s a great present idea too.

ps: lots of people have been asking me about the name labels I mentioned a while back. They are from Tiny Me. I ordered Garden Party in ‘classic’.

I can’t stop thinking about cool playhouses for the twins. This cool twigwam (above) can stay outside all year long! Here are some other favourites…
This Indian teepee from Hedgehog; this rustic playhouse from Cox & Cox; and I still love this Win Green striped wigwam (bought for Tabitha and Marlow the year before last, and about to come down from the attic for the Summer – you can also buy the matching floor quilt). Just add some mismatched quilts, blankets and cushions and you’ve got yourself (erm, I mean your little ones…) one stylish little garden retreat.

Hedgehog Pull Along Cart
£35.00  SHOP NOW
What kid doesn’t love loading up all their toys (crap) into something vaguely mobile, then moving (dragging) it from place to place? So why not get them something cool to do it with? This a great price for something that is guaranteed to get A LOT of use. Plus I won’t resent it (too much) hanging around because it looks good. Sold!

ps: I bought the best swimming costume for Tabitha this afternoon in Gap. I have scoured their website and it’s not there, but this is the bikini version (also very cute, but better for slightly older girls). The one piece is the same seersucker fabric and grey/blue stripe and it has a halter-neck. I bought Tabs age 4-5 and it fits (admittedly quite roomy, but she is tiny, and it was the smallest size). It’s gorgeous, and looks super-expensive. It will be having it’s first outing on Monday at their swimming lesson.

pps: I know it’s Saturday and not Friday, but I bought these flats from Zara, and I already love them, and they were just £20.00!! I wore them this afternoon with a cashmere sweater and my Current Elliot black jeans (with a little cuff). Super-chic.

ppps: Mango has a whopping 30% off today (enter the code: 5APRIL2014 at checkout), so get shopping! I’ve just had a breakfast (not so little) shopping spree (for me and the kids) and I’m still in my pyjamas! Thanks Lisa for the tip-off.

 

hello dolly

7 October 2013

Ragtales Molly Rag Doll
This is Molly, and she in one stylish dolly. So stylish in fact, that she is stocked at Liberty no less! Now a stylish doll is definitely not easy to come by (I recently succumbed to buying ‘Tanya’, Italy’s answer to Barbie at Pisa airport as a ‘guilty working mum present’ for Tabitha, but she was wearing a rather cool Pucci-esque shift dress…), so I was rather excited to discover her. How cute is her outfit? A stripe, a floral, and even a hint of a tulle underskirt. And she also comes with her own stylish little cotton bag with her name embroidered on the front. And she is really lovely and soft (not always the case with the more well dressed dolls…).  And what I love most of all, is that that she actually looks like a proper ‘little girl’s doll’, not some spooky incarnation of a lap dancer (sorry Tanya). Tabitha will definitely be unwrapping a Molly on Christmas day…

teepee with style

21 May 2013

Win Green Striped Wigwam
I was obsessed with finding the perfect teepee for Tabarlow before Christmas. Obsessed! It had to be cool and tasteful, and ideally in a ticking stripe (I know, I know…). In a nutshell, I wanted one that looked great (and it did, in the middle of the living room for a while…), but was obviously still fun for the twins to hide and play in (and large enough to house two small people comfortably of course). And believe me when I say that no stone was left unturned in my quest. Now this one was definitely not the cheapest, but it was definitely the nicest. It is pretty big though (I tend to forgot to check measurements of anything I buy online, which has got me into all kinds of scrapes with all manor of things, which I won’t bore you all with now…), so check out the dimensions on the website. You can also buy the matching quilt for the floor of the teepee, which although an extra cost, was a really lovely finishing touch. But to be honest, you could just lay a few mismatched quilts and blankets down for an equally lovely, cosy effect. There is currently a waiting list for this one, but you can pre-order now, which I would definitely recommend. And if you’ve already started searching for the perfect teepee yourself, you can call it off…
