Outside the Lines is a new girlswear brand offering a “carefully considered” clothing collection for girls age 3-10.

And considered it is. From the soft muted colours, to the understated luxurious materials, and of course the details. It’s all about the details. The trims, the little twists on wardrobe staples like the Breton top with foil collar, the tutu with a beautifully beaded waistline. Yummy.

Top 5 Stylish Kids Coat Hooks

Winter’s approaching and that means changes in the house…it’s not just ALL about being cold but also about being prepared for the winter months ahead. Of course the seasonal wardrobe change over must occur…flip flops out and warm jumpers in, heating goes on and the slippers come out etc. But that also means that ANY DAY NOW my kids’ winter coats will appear in a heap at the bottom of the stairs or if I am lucky slung over the bannisters. So here’s the plan…I’m taking a more mature approach to this yearly battle of ‘hang up your coat’ by investing in a stylish coat hook or 20!

Here are my top 5:

Camille Walala x Labour of Love Kids Fashion Collaboration

Now unless you have been living under a stone, or maybe in some Amish community that has no electricity – you will have heard of the brilliant vlogger Mother Pukka. Now we know her and we like her. She is very very funny. And pretty. Actually, maybe we hate her? No, we are not that shallow. Anyway, I digress. On her hugely popular Instagram, she often seen posing in front of a rather striking graphic wall. Now that wall is why we are all gathered here today.

The wall has been painted/muralised whatever by the amazing graphic artist Camille Walala. Camille Walala is a purveyor of powerfully positive digital print. A graduate in Textile Design from the University of Brighton, her namesake brand was established in East London in 2009, where she continues to live. Yes, she is one of those hipster-types and not only is she achingly cool – her work is off the charts cool.

Tutu Du Monde – Girls Halloween Collection

Halloween is almost here! And for those of you who find yourself supergluing a misshapen bat wing onto an old gym t-shirt the night before Halloween, this post is a warning to you – be prepared!  Now, I am not criticizing homemade costumes – if you can do it and do it well, I raise my glass to you!
