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?
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
As they get older, I have noticed comfort is King and so these shorts work a treat.
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.
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.
This silver holdall is a real showstopper. The quality is outstanding and would make a wonderful present.
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.
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!
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!
They also have a great selection of gifts, both for baby and mum to be and I am hoping this headband will fit me!
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.
Started by the gorgeous Caro who has just had her 4th baby, these boys boxer shorts are an absolute winner.
As they don’t have the traditional gap, they can be worn around the house and even for a quick dip!
Suitable for age 3 – 10. I am waiting for her to branch into mens!
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.
I hope these have inspired and do email me if you have any great businesses that I should be including firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a lovely evening,
