|£24 (2-8yrs) The Little White Company|
In all the years I have been working in magazines I don’t think one Spring/Summer season passed without us doing some sort of nautical story.
However it was sold it to the Editor – be it a stylish shoot on a yacht or a shopping round-up – we all had to come up with a new spin on ‘Nautical, but Nice!’.
Although, if we ever used that heading we were met with grimaces and groans…
Anyway, there is just no getting away from the classic appeal of red, white and blue. And for kids it’s big news this coming Spring (yes, Spring is coming. The nights are definitely getting lighter and we even have some Daffodil’s popping up in our much unloved garden).
I have been spotting anchor motifs, sailboat prints and American vintage beach style pieces everywhere. I thought for today’s fashion round-up I would concentrate on just the boys – or, the buoys! As I feel I have neglected them a little – being a mama to a little girl I tend to start there when pulling together my posts.
