Daisy & Evie's Little Bird Autumn Wish List

So I realise it's not quite Autumn yet, but Little Bird have just launched their transitional pieces for AW14 and I'm in love with EVERYTHING so I had to share my wish list for the girls!

I'm so excited because from this season onwards items will be made for children up to the age of eight, instead of age five as they were previously. This means Daisy will still be able to wear them which she is so happy about (as am I). I just wish they made them in my size! 

The colours and materials are, as always, utterly perfect for the season - in this case for that early Autumnal time of year where the sun is still shining but there's a chill in the air. What do you all think? I would honestly wear everything in this list myself if I could! xoxo

1. Rainbow bomber gilet, £14-£16 // 2. Pointelle knit jumper, £12-£14 //
3. Hello Byebye t-shirt, £7-£8 // 4. Ditsy floral skirt, £12-£14 // 5. Desert boots, £16 // 
6. Rainbow raglan t-shirt, £7-£9 // 7. Orange lace dress, £14-£16 // 
8. Green cord dress, £14-£16 

Daisy's Daily Outfit ♥ A Seaside Dress for Southbank Beach

Seaside Dress, £8 (currently on sale) - Little Bird by Jools at Mothercare
Red jelly shoes, £12 - SunJellies

We spent Saturday afternoon on an awesome man made beach on the Southbank in London with Ruth from RocknRollerBaby and Carolynne from Mummy Endeavours and their families. It was honestly such a brilliant day; we ate sushi, splashed in the water fountains (yes, me too!) and made sand angels in the huge sandpit that has been built along the prom overlooking the Thames (inbetween the Hungerford and Waterloo bridges).

If you fancy a trip to the seaside but the coast is too far for you, I'd wholeheartedly recommend paying the Southbank a visit; we could have spent all day there! The best bit? It's all entirely free, although there is heaps to do nearby if you do fancy splashing a bit of cash (the London Aquarium and the London Eye to name a couple).

Daisy and Evie wore matching Seaside dresses from the Little Bird by Jools range at Mothercare (which you all know I'm a huuuuuuge fan of). I lost count of the number of times people asked me where they came from on Saturday alone; they're so cute and retro and remind me of the sundresses I wore growing up in the eighties. (My Mum used to dress my sister and me the same too). I think lots of people have the same nostalgic love for Jool's pieces and that's what makes them so popular. Aren't they just so gorgeous?

DISCLAIMER: Daisy & Evie were gifted their dresses by Mothercare; jelly shoes and SpongeBob toy model's own ;)

August #NYNYStyleProject

How quickly did July zoom by? I can't believe the time has come for me to launch August's Style Project prompts already!

July has seen an incredible amount of people join in with the Project; just search the hashtag on Instagram or Twitter to see everyone's fantastic photos and prepare to be inspired!

This month is high summer, and lots of us will be having at least a little bit of time off so I'm hoping for a record amount of participants. I'd love it if you'd help spread the word. Retweet, regram, share share share. Please! I'll love you forever.

Remember, you can interpret the prompt exactly how you wish. There's no right or wrong way. Everyone wants to see what you're wearing and how you're wearing it so why not take a photo and join in. It's a great motivator as well as being brilliant for your self-esteem.

New to the #NYNYStyleProject? Read all about it here.

Want to join in? Here's how to play.

♥ Find the day's prompt on the current month's list.
♥ Interpret the prompt as you will, and incorporate your interpretation into your daily style. It can be an item of clothing, a piece of make up or a beauty project that you own or something you've seen and are lusting after. 
♥ Take a photo! 
♥ Share it on Instagram or Twitter. Don't forget to use the hashtag #NYNYStyleProject so that other people can find your pictures.
♥ Search the hashtag yourself and check out other people's photos. Like what you see? Tell the photographer! It's a nice way to get to know eachother and a lovely confidence boost too. 
♥ You don't have to join in every single day! Sometimes it's just not possible - and that's okay! Dip in and out whenever you like, and if you're not able to take your own photos, look at other people's for inspiration.

Most importantly - have fun! - and don't forget to search the #NYNYStyleProject hashtag on Instagram and Twitter! xoxo
