Ever the stylish one for her rendezvous mini is wearing possibly one of my favourite outfits ever. I love love love this white linen embroidered top from Ralph Lauren. It's almost like a vintage hankerchief has been made into a little summer top and when paired with her stella denim roll up shorts it's perfection.

Finally the weather is heating up and so is Mini in her hot pink Ferrari. Or rather it's good at cooling her down in today's heatwave. Tom and Phin are lending a hand at filling it up and Mini is posing in her new purple and yellow polkadot playsuit by John Lewis from Shelley and best bud Noah (big shout out for your 1st birthday today). We added a big yellow bow 'Little My' style (as does Phin in his red star Hartfords) and a pair of crochet espadrilles by Ralph Lauren from a recent Bicester Village jaunt. Stylish summer indeed.

Mini didn't rock a festival look, opting instead to use the occasion to unveil her cherry embroidered smocked party dress from Auntie Peggy at the Linen Shop on Walton st. Incongruous yes, but hey she stood out from the crowd.
Mini was a big hit garnering kisses from all, the sweetest being from Phin's friend Ava whom Mini just idolises.
Oh and did we mention the kids sumo wrestling? Beyond hilarious. Phin could barely stand under the weight of the suit and collapsed happily in a giant padded heap.

And although she is perfecting her walk on a daily basis she still has the stance of someone doing 'the Monster Mash'. Who knows, it could catch on.

Today we celebrated fathers day with lots of friends and a sumptuous brunch. Mini used the occasion to unveil her new rose bud dress from Trotters given to her by Phins old nanny Tata. It's so darn pretty in a 1950's retro Americana way, with a big bow at the back and edged in White ticking. We accented the outfit with a lime green hair bow and lots of attitude.
She's not particularly generous with her kisses but Gige got two consecutive ones today. After practising her dives and kick kick kicking we head off to lunch with Papoo in tow. We like to get dressed up for the occasion even if it's only the cafe in Regent's Park. So in honour of her weekly restaurant jaunt Mini is sporting her new cream polka dot dress from The Gap. A birthday gift from her tante Poppy, it's edged in cream lace and comes with the frilliest of matching knickers. Beyond cute. We've added a cappuccino coloured bow from peach ribbons courtesy of the lovely Lucia.

Mini and i also did an H&M dash yesterday and picked up her first pair of silly sunnies. She loves hamming it up and pouting while keeping these hilariously daisy shaped floral sunglasses on her nose.

We love Calypso as our destination store in both La and NYC and couldn't believe our luck at their collaboration with the budget conscious Target. The range is huge, Womenswear, children's and homeware all done in bright colours and ethnic inspired prints at an affordable price. So a huge thank you to Kristin and Scout for the heads up and for sending our gifts over the pond.

> Well sort of, the sun has been a bit ambivalent this holiday and is being a tad temperamental but for the moment its beaming. She's keeping shaded with her multicoloured straw pagoda hat another great find from Couverture and The Garbstore for her last day on our favourite island. She's wearing it with her brand new Paisley print romper. It's a gift from her Opi and comes from the Danish designer Christina Rhode at Hop Like A Bunny. Its trimmed in beige lace and buttons down the back like a grandad all-in-one!
