Outside the Lines SS17 has landed online and what a gorgeous collection it is! With pleasure, I hosted a press breakfast at Bronte to launch Spring / Summer collection of girls fashion and preview the Autumn Winter collection. What a great response it received. There were lots of demands for adult sizes for a mini-me matching look so watch this space for some further developments!
Spring Summer ’17
Outside the Lines‘, spring / summer ’17 collection takes its inspiration from global travel combining elements of bohemian ’70s style with a more contemporary look for free-spirited girls who wish to explore their own style. With a nod to the folk trend, the 30-piece collection for ages 3-13 years offers a soft muted palette punctuated with pops of colour and fun yet refined details that bring the looks alive. The handicraft touches complement the strong denim chambray workwear and refined essentials all with their own twist. Folk-inspired tassels and pom-poms adorn dresses, tops and shorts in Outside the Lines’ second collection, keeping the bohemian spirit of this collection alive. Due to popular demand, Outside the Lines has increased its age range for the first time up to 12-13 years. Highlight pieces in the collection include the indigo Maddie all-in-one playsuit punctuated with white embroidery, the Sadie pom-pom tapestry jacket in accents of neon coral and the crisp white Ava cotton blouse with this season key ruffle detail finishing into a soft pretty bow at the back, perfect for a carefree summertime look.
This embroidered all in one playsuit is my favourite from the collection. Get it all before it’s gone. It’s not going to hang around for long! And just wait till you see the AW17 collection which is full of glitz and glamour, faux fur, pleated skirts and embellishments. I want it all!
Margherita Kids is a new childrenswear collection designed by Margherita Missoni, one of the members of the Missoni family launching exclusively at John Lewis this month. The 37-piece collection which has just launched online and in-store includes bohemian-inspired pieces from ages newborn to seven years old. Prints are bold and bright and exude a boho style that Missoni has become renowned for herself. Prices range from £20-£52. Prior to this, Margherita Kids was only available via Yoox so it’s a delight to be able to get hold of the collection in the UK easily.
My favourite pieces from the Margherita Kids collection include the denim embroidered skirt, floral print bodysuit, the embroidered shirt and chambray dress.
Sadly my one and only daughter is too big for this now although she could probably squeeze into the age 7. Better start breathing in! These pieces also make a lovely gift and won’t break the bank.
Available now at John Lewis online and in-store.

Beauty brand, Pai Skincare has this month launched its dedicated baby and child-focused range, Petit Pai. The new range focuses on delicate skin that is easily irritated or unsettled. Formulated using certified organic ingredients with proven therapeutic properties, the new range delivers instant relief to troubled skin and helps lay the foundation for healthy skin in the future. The new collection includes: Apple & Mallow Blossom Face & Body Cream (£20) and Apple & Mallow Blossom Hair & Body Wash (£18, including 100% natural Konjac Sponge), both created to maintain the optimum pH of babies’ skin. All Pai and Petit Pai products are certified organic by the Soil Association are Vegan accredited and Cruelty-Free.
According to Sarah Brown, founder of Pai Skincare, “When you’re a mum, you have a million things to think about, and worrying what you’re putting on your child’s skin shouldn’t be one of them.”
I can’t wait to try out this new Petit Pai skincare and haircare range from Pai Skincare. When Miss I was very little she had a patch of eczema on her face which would not disappear. I hate using chemical-ridden products for baby and children’s sensitive skin as you really have no idea what you are putting on. How delicious does the Apple & Mallow fragrance sound?
There is even a try me set (£8) which is a travel sized option of the cream and body wash.
Available now from Pai Skincare.
