20% off at Olivier Baby & Kids and a very special pop-up featuring OBK and Edit 58

Olivier Baby & Kids is one of our favourite childrenswear brands. Not only because it's a small British business dreamed up by two sisters, but also because the designs manage to straddle that tricky divide of being contemporary yet vintage and child-appropriate. The cashmere is delicious (and durable) - just check out the super-cool hoodies and beautiful heart-on-the-back cardis, whilst the babywear is so gorgeous it'll make you broody for another (just kidding, just kidding, I am OUT of that game). And so, because we love them (and you) we have an exclusive 20% discount on all their a/w collection as well as some news on an exciting pop-up happening next week....…

Win! An outfit from Polarn O. Pyret’s Same Difference collection

Beautifully made with a great unisex ethos, Polarn O. Pyret is one of my favourite brands of childrenwear. I also agree whole-heartedly with the message behind its new rainbow-striped Same Difference collection - that "no matter who they are, where they come from or how they look, every child deserves the right to a childhood." To celebrate the launch of the collection (where €1 from every garment sold goes to the World Childhood Foundation), we are giving you the chance to win an outfit (consisting of two items) from Polarn O. Pyret for your child/nephew/niece/favourite small person...…

The Ultimate Dressing Up Box?

Pearl Lowe is our kind of (former) rock chick. When she had her brood (she has four children), she put music to one side and returned to her first love – design. It was a way to keep her creative side happy and spend time with her children. With an emphasis on textiles (she’s a vintage-loving fiend), her latest collection is a luxury lifestyle brand for children – Petite Pearl Lowe. And it’s a little girl’s dream come true. (I know one who said, “Wow, wow, wow” when she saw the pictures. Quite a review.) P.S. Come back soon to read Pearl’s five parenting truths.…

5 Things I’ve Learned About Parenting: Marina Sevier of Marloe London

Alex and I are all too conscious that the relationship between ‘baby essentials’ and ‘style’ is a tenuous one. I remember dispatching my mum to buy emergency ‘tiny baby’ babygrows for my little girl and she came back marveling that it still held fast that pink was for girls and blue for boys – and that the cutesy factor was off the scale. Imagine a world where baby essentials were all gorgeous, utterly covetable – and useful long after your babies have grown. Welcome, then, with open arms, Marloe London, set up by new mamas Marina Sevier and Chloe Riddell. Yearning after something more sophisticated, they’ve produced the softest bamboo and organic cotton muslins in ice cream shades (I have my eye on the ombre dip-dyed ones). They can be draped over prams (or indeed chairs and sofas), used as picnic rugs, a swaddle, as a stylish means of breastfeeding modesty, even draped around your neck as a scarf. Because something you use every single day for months (even years) should be as stylish as possible. We love them. And we’re delighted that Marina (mama to Uma, 2, and Leo, 5 months) has agreed to share her 5 Things… with…

The Christmas Countdown – fabulous festive jumpers for kids

Before I embark on the true content of this post, can I just take a quick sidestep to tell you just how much I love the first Bridget Jones movie? If you haven’t seen it for a while, do revisit, it really is a classic. Now, moving on… ’em or loathe ’em, it’s almost the season of the Christmas Jumper (buy now before they sell out). For this post I’ve focused on children’s jumpers as let’s face it a kitsch jumper on them looks cute, on me not so much. But still, any excuse to use this Bridget/Darcy picture….…

Awesome children’s knits for autumn

It’s October! It’s cold! It’s jumper season! If there’s one thing I love more than cosying up in a gorgeous jumper, it’s wrestling my children into gorgeous jumpers (despite the fact that they think shorts and t-shirts are perfectly acceptable in nearly freezing conditions). From dreamy cashmere to high-street hits, here’s what I’ve been drooling over this week….…

Style File: Smallable’s Cécile Roederer

Cécile Roederer is very chic, very charming and very cool. She is the founder and CEO of Smallable – a concept store for children which is impeccably curated. Imagine Net-a-Porter meets Selfridges – but for children – and you’re pretty much there. We also adore the super-stylish magazine. (Warning: the temptation to shop is almost irresistible. And they are branching out into womenswear. Uh-oh.) We had to request a glimpse into her super-stylish world – including a peek at what’s hot for AW15 for children, mamas and interiors……
