Mummy and Me – Marching Band

Band-camp is a phrase I associate with the American Pie movies. But let me tell you – today that look is hot hot HOT for the new season. And we are going to show you how to get the look for you, and for your little girl. Let’s go!

First up, it would be rude not to start with the Ladies – it’s us first afterall. And what could be better than a bit of Saint Laurent? OK – we can dream…Cropped Wool Blazer £2,565 My Theresa.

The GREAT news is even if we can’t do it for us (because who can at that price?) – we can get that look for our girls for a lot less thanks to this Mel Majortette All in One £87 by Stella McCartney Kids.
