Spring Time Little Bird

Ottilie and I had quite a treat this week as we headed to Jools Oliver's Primrose Hill home to see the new Little Bird by Jools range for Mothercare.  There were great things for boys and girls and all at an affordable price and the exciting news was that come Autumn Winter they are extending the range from 5 years up to 8!

The collection was filled with all our favourite seventies inspired motifs reminiscent of my own childhood. I loved this rainbow sun visor and the shoes are fantastic too from lovely open toed sandals to trainers and rainbow striped wellies.

Phin would rock this anorak and cool star T 

I would love to get both my girls in this retro inspired shirt dress

like Jools we love a floral sprig sundress

Eat your heart out Prada. These striped sport socks are so on trend!

Thanks Jools for a great morning and a fab collection

Birthday Treat Bonanza

Mini and I went on a birthday shopping spree yesterday to Selfridges. What an utter treat. It was all Mini's idea. What better gift to get me than a pretty dress. I mean I know I may have a wardrobe stocked full but I'd be mad to turn down another. Ooh the excitement - what would Mini choose?

First stop pink Miu Miu coat. Definitely Mini's favourite colour

William Vintage was Mini's idea of heaven. What could be better than a gold ball gown embroidered with silver thread and flowers. A dress Belle would be delighted to wear in Beauty and The Beast but where could i wear it out? School drop off?

Strapless Roksanda Illincic? With holographic beading? You can see a pattern emerging...
Finally a stop off at the queen of embellishment and evening wear Jenny Packham. A whole rail of feathers and tulle and sequins, perfect for the Oscars perhaps...

But it was off to the Stella McCartney changing room, the perfect place to base ourselves. Clever Stella, the whole wall was covered in interchangeable coloured perspex shapes and hooks, and it kept mini amused for quite some time whilst i happily tried on her selection.

Smile for our first pic Mini. Oops you can see she's been doing this way too long and is gaining quite an attitude! I'm loving this stretch jersey tomato red shift dress. Comfy and elegant. And Mini is showcasing her cousin Josie's Antik Batik silver printed coat to perfection.
Ah yes, the dress Gwynnie wore. Great choice. Loving the emerald and navy lace appliqué hearts and the side pockets

This is the one that won! Perfection from a little girl's perspective as well as a big girls. I love it! What could be better than a pale pink shift covered in sparkles, lipsticks and lips. Heaven.
