Mama Still Got It!
I think for so many of us, dressing our kids in gorgeous clothes give us great pleasure. Equally, I think that for some (certainly me) the investment both emotionally and financially in our own wardrobes has waned slightly, now that there are small people to dress. And certainly (for many mamas) things aren't in the same place or the same shape as they used to be, having undertaken the immense task of carrying/birthing children and breast-feeding.
I am a default jeans and trainers kind of girl, and there's nothing wrong with that. It's a practical, comfortable and safe look that works well. There's occasions though where I do find myself feeling a bit meh as my staying in and going out clothes are one and the same! And so we've decided to broaden our horizons a bit and branch out a little further than we have historically into womenswear, with so many of our favourite baby and kid brands having adult offshoots with some really lovely pieces.
Emile et Ida is one of the womenswear brands we have decided to focus on this spring/summer - they design and produce deliciously retro basics with folky roots. Its a really wearable collection and one that can be as easily dressed up as down plus (bonus!) lots of tees and tops that look great with jeans. With a colour palette of caramel and ecru together with dusty pinks and blues we are stocking skirts and dresses too from extra small to large.
We are also carrying Liilu in mama sizes this season for the first time. A really beautiful collection with a timeless feel. Every piece is made from 100% organic cotton muslin and we have a small but perfectly formed collection of dresses, skirts, shirts and blouses available but be quick, we are already down to the last item in several designs!
We are also delighted to be stocking Bobo Choses Growing Young again this Spring/Summer. A Dance Romance is an immensely fun collection that features prints and shapes from the kids collection. They have taken some of the very best pieces and given them just a little bit of a twist - we have some stand-out t shirts and sweatshirts (I may have brought them all!) but also some gorgeous knits and some beautifully printed shirts and midi skirts and so much more besides!
With additional pieces from Rylee and Cru, Mingo, My Moumout, Poudre Organic, Monkind, The Animals Observatory and Le Petit Germain plus adult sunglasses from Izipizi, its well worth a browse! We are currently in the throes of making our website a bit more user friendly, its still a work in progress but we have created a Womenswear section and you are now able to search by price, size and brand, it makes such a difference!
Womenswear is an area we hope to continue to grow.....we may well top up our existing collections this season and have already placed orders for Autumn/Winter 2020. Shop what we have so far online here, and watch this space for further news!
