Kit The Kids Out This Summer with These Online Shops

In the hecticness of life, it is hard to think of where to head when you actually need something, other than the big corporates (or the supermarket!)  We all have our default shops and where we head to for a quick virtual supermarket sweep, but its important to try and balance out this with smaller brands.  We have left it ia little late with independent shops on the high street, so let’s not leave it to late to support online shops.

Todays aim is to introduce to some wonderful businesses I have come across in the last couple off months which will help you get your families Spring Summer wardrobe together and encourage you to shop from smaller brands.  Why chance looking like everyone else, when you can look individual, knowing you are supporting someone’s dream?

St Berts 

Yesterday as I discussed with a friend what 8 year old boys should wear to Dress Down Thursday, we both agreed they were too old for appliqué or Lego logo T shirts – but we wanted to avoid looking like they had been dressed by us! I had no hesitation in recommending she looked at St Berts that have totally nailed the smart relaxed look.

I love this Chevron Sweater 

Chevron Tops

As they get older, I have noticed comfort is King and so these shorts work a treat.

Rainbow shorts

The girls playsuits are also so cute!!

The selection of T shirts will have you sorted for summer, so head on over and check them out.

Apatchy London 

As I packed the boys off to cricket camp at Easter with their Spiderman lunch boxes, I slightly cringed for them and made a mental note to get them something more grown up. Apatchy London have a huge range of super smart and very cool personalised bags and cases for travel, sport and school.

This Personalised Backpack is only £49. It is sturdy and understated but the personalisation makes it stand out as a bit different.

Back Pack

This silver holdall is a real showstopper. The quality is outstanding and would make a wonderful present.

They also have brilliant smaller gift ideas, such as Pencil Cases and Mouthguard cases that you can attache to your sports bag!

THIMBLE London

Emily started by making nighties for her own children, and then friends.. and then the rest is … Thimble Onion!

Her handmade nighties are just beautiful.

Traditional Nightie

As there was such a huge demand she has also started making dresses.

If you want one for the summer, get in touch as I have a feeling she will be busy!

Thimble Dresses

 

Twinkledust 

If you love simple strong prints and only the best fabric for your baby – you will love Twinkledust.  I love the star print – especially these little leggings!

Leggings

They also have a great selection of gifts, both for baby and mum to be and I am hoping this headband will fit me!

Headband

It is overall a lovely manageable one stop shop if you are having a bay or looking to buy something for a baby!  Check out the goodies in this Marvellous Mum Set.

Little Boxers 

Started by the gorgeous Caro who has just had her 4th baby, these boys boxer shorts are an absolute winner.

Boxers

As they don’t  have the traditional gap, they can be worn around the house and even for a quick dip!

Boys Boxers

Suitable for age 3 – 10. I am waiting for her to branch into mens!

Butterflies and Bees 

If you are staying with friends over the summer months – step up your guest game by taking your own towels. These hand stitched personalised towels are very sweet.

Personalised Towels

Why not take one as thank you present too? There are gorgeous hand towels or these face cloths are only £6 and would make the most lovely gift for a little person!

Facecloth

I hope these have inspired and do email me if you have any great businesses that I should be including hello@thelondonmummy.com

Have a lovely evening,
