Little and Large


mother-daughter-jackets120Now, I am not suggesting you dress like twins. That would be a bit much. But there is nothing wrong with a spot of hers and hers. (Or hers and his.) Sometimes, it can be fun to be a little alike. It is undeniable that my daughter often wears a smaller version of what I wear.

1. A little bit of inspirational reading: cooking for me, paper craft for her. (Two-and-a-half is a bit young – and far too destructive – for paper dolls. (But I have bookmarked this genius project by the lovely Tiny and Little for the next, inevitable rainy day.)

2. Yesterday, I bought C the MOST adorable Isabel Marant (yep, Alex and I are both obsessed) dress from the Zara Kids sale. Now, it’s not on the website, so I can’t show you, but this is of the same ilk (they also have a smocked pinafore which I cannot rave about enough – it’s like something an Italian bambino would wear). And I adore the Greta dress by the actual Isabel M.

3. Breton stripes all ’round. Personally, I don’t think you can ever have enough Breton striped tops. Both of these are also available in sunshine yellow stripes. Bring it on.

4. Bikes. I have visions of us cycling along the Thames path – and I am definitely more of a Miss Marple style bike gal than a sleek racer. (Speed? Not so much. This one even has a basket to go with it. Need I say more?) This cruiser-style bike probably isn’t suited to long rides, but it looks so cool. And C can hop aboard mine.
