Playing with proportion

Mini may only be 2 but she knows how to play with proportion. Pairing an antique pink flowing blouson top from Bonton from cousins Josie and Gigi with her Stella for Gap skinnies and a giant bow on her head. Fashionably relaxing in mamas bed.

Star Burst

Another J Crew hit is this citrus yellow cotton hoodie and her chambray star print shorts. They are gathered at the waist with a cotton ribbon and I want a pair for me too!

Tummy Time

Mini loves her tum tum and proudly flashes anyone who asks. Today we're embracing the sun with her new C de C floral frilled shorts and matching blouse a birthday gift from Godmummy Emma. We've paired them with her orange Bonton cardi and silver slippers. I love the 1930's feel to them, the perfect accent to her Demi wave curls and a playdate with Bill.

Muddy Puddles

What a fun day. Brunch first with papoo, woody and daisy and then later a long jaunt in the park. Mini took her baby for a walk and followed Peppa pig's lead, spending lots of time jumping up and down in muddy puddles in Phins old yellow Stella wellies and her cobalt and white sundress from Boden.
We also delighted in seeing mummy duck and all five of her fluffy ducklings.

Peek-a- Boo

Beckett says Peek-a-boo. The perfect companion while Papas away

Birthday Bonanza

Today was a bit of a birthday bonanza with Phin celebrating his BF Rocco's party this morning and Mini's pal Noah this afternoon.
So it was superhero time this Saturday morning and after much deliberation Phin plumped for his favourite - 1960's Batman. And although Mini has a few costumes of her own from Yo Gabba Gabba's Foofa to Thumbelina and of course Peppa Pig, she's not quite got into the dressing up box thing yet. So we opted for a super classic party dress, courtesy of cousins Josie and Gigi. Italian made by Lesy, its a vision of white cotton with printed red ribbons, lashings of tulle underskirts and adorned with little red satin abd grosgrain ribbons around the waist. Perfection.

Birthday Bonanza part II

And then off to jump around the soft play at minis pal Noah's birthday bash in Borehamwood.
Made all the more sentimental as Noah's mum shelley and I have known each other from when we were one and we both have fantastic pictures and memories of all our birthday parties over the years.

Lady of Leisure

Mini took prime position, laying in my bed, while a fashion shoot took place at home. Our photographer and BF Todd couldn't help but take some snaps of our leisurely princess. Decked out in her Madras checked top and burnt orange cardigan from Bonpoint (picked up last year at Bicester) and her Gap denim shorts mini looked every part the summer chick while Phin looked nonchalant in his Stella checked shirt and cobalt shorts and American Apparel grey tank.

Polka princess

I'm loving the fact that mini is getting to wear a few of her new summer buys. I went a bit mad in the JCrew shorts department. They do such a broad range not just your average rolled up coloured chinos but also ones that have stars, stripes, glitter and great colours and fabrics. These navy and white polka dot bloomers are soft and whimsical. We paired them with a navy short sleeved sweater from Juicy Couture, a great hand-me-down from Grace & Alice. And nothing completes the look better than a pineapple hairstyle.

It's a charmed life

Mini is wearing her pride and joy today, her very first piece of jewellery. It was a birthday gift from Natalie and comes from Links of London. A Pink soft plastic strap adorned with silver charms, what more could a little girl ask for?
We accessorised with her Gap butterfly stitched flares and a fair isle short sleeve knit from Ralph Lauren, a gorgeous hand-me-down from cousins Josie & Gigi. It's certainly a charmed life.

Happy Papa's Day

Today we celebrated fathers day in germany with my family. Papa got spoilt over a good German breakfast and Phin & mini gave him their self made card and a gorgeous leather bookmark inscribed in silver by Phin's fair hand. The glorious result of their secret tea party at Anya Hindmach's Bespoke store. Papa was super impressed.
The double duo in their Bonton yellow stripes then hit the playground with big cousin Finn Nuala for some action before jetting back home.

Jelly on a plate

Wibble wobble wibble wobble jelly on a plate. Mini loved having red and green jelly today at my oncle Hans's house. It was supposed to be a glorious garden party around their lake and although the rain deterred most of us it didn't stop mini from popping her toes in nor her cousin finn Nuala from taking a dip. And despite the stormy weather we dressed for summer with Mini sporting a pale blue leaf print summer dress and cobalt blue cardigan from Bonton with a giant sky blue bow and papa looked dapper as ever in his Uniqlo linen blazer and chocolate pocket square.

Mini munching on her pretzel today in her Stella for Gap flares and pink crochet top. She looks so good I wanna eat her up.
