maxi dresses for little girlsmaxi dress for 6 year old girlgirls long dress Zara

I have been looking for a maxi dress for Anya for ages.  I really wonder why maxi dresses for little girls are so rare.  They may not be the most practical for playing in a park or running around but they are great for other occasions like a meal out or even a birthday party.  I finally found one last week and I had to snap it up.  They look so cool and stylish and Anya loved wearing it and twirling around.  In fact it’s been a struggle to get it off her – she even wanted to sleep with it on!

We decided to pair it with orange ankle boots to give the maxi dress a bit more of an edgier look.  Sandals would have been the obvious choice but I didn’t want too girly a look.   And besides we’re still waiting for proper sandal weather in London – will it ever come?  While out in the dress so many people stopped us and asked where the dress was from. We were mostly stopped by mums who also wanted a long dress for their little girls.  Have you come across any maxi dresses for little girls?  I’d love to hear as I would like to get a couple more for the Summer.

"100 cotton girls summer dresses"This weekend we went strawberry (and veggie) picking.  Not only have I never taken Anya before but I had never been.  I so enjoyed picking my own vegetables knowing that I would be able to go home and cook them (hello broad bean bruschetta).  Anya too had a ball picking strawberries but then refused to eat them (fussy eater doesn’t even begin to describer her)!  This is one of the things that I love most about Summer – spending time outdoors as a family, doing fun things that everybody can enjoy.  My other Summer love is the fashion, especially the beautiful and colourful Summer dresses for little girls like the green dress that Anya wears.

anya-goodall-test3This Sophie dress was gifted to us by the talented designer Molly who is known for her adorable animal coats but has now extended her range to include lots of pretty and very girly Summer clothes.  Every piece that Molly offers is handmade making each item even more special.   This blue-green dress is one of my favourites in her collection because it’s so simple, easy and comfy to wear and looks so pretty.  The hand block-printed fabric and the little details like the ruffle hem and front tie just add to the charm of this dress.

I can’t wait to go back again to do some more veggie and fruit picking and next time I might even convince Anya to eat the strawberries.  After all how can anybody not like strawberries?  And thank you to Molly for this lovely dress and don’t forget to check out the rest of her Summer dresses.

"Elias and grace Summer sale"

Who doesn’t love a good bargain, especially when one of your favourite shops goes on sale.  Elias & Grace has  been a favoruite of mine for ages.  I love the chic and minimal clothes they have in their collections year after year.  They stock some of the most exciting kids clothing brands and they mix and match the various brands so well to create stylish looks.  Even just checking out their look book each season is so inspiring.  I have bought a few pieces from them and they are some of the most versatile pieces in Anya’s wardrobe.  Right now Elias & Grace have a huge sale and I have to say it’s very tempting, especially my favourite piece of all – that long black dress by April Showers.  How chic is that?

Fresh florals, girly cuts and soft tones make up this dreamy Summer collection by Morley for kids.  The styles, the colours and of course the floral prints all scream Summer to me.  Morley is a stylish Belgian line of clothes for kids, both boys and girls.  This collection is so fresh and pretty but still has an edginess that makes it really stand out.  Apart from the beautiful clothes, I think their photography is so striking too. 

"best colours to wear in Summer"

How gorgeous are these shades for Summer?  When I saw those women’s dresses I totally fell for the colours.  Fresh, soft and flirty, perfect for those glorious sunny days ahead (I hope!).  And the kids clothes are no less beautiful, especially those lemon yellow dungarees.  Seeing colours like these in the shops makes me happy and hopeful for a long, hot Summer.

"Spanish kids fashion"

A little while I ago I shared this amazing coat from Pepito by Chus which so many of you told me you loved as much as I did.  Today I wanted to share their new Spring Summer collection which is fresh and beautiful.  I love how all the pieces are simple and mostly in solid colours but then embellished with a bow, a ruffle or an unusual collar.  The cuts are classic and so, so chic.  The whole collection is feminine without being fussy.  These are the kind of girly clothes that every little girl needs – the kind that look so comfy yet so chic and pretty.

"chic clothes for girls"

I’m always drawn to the girls stuff because I have a girl but the boys range is no less beautiful.  Crisp white collarless shirts and cute shorts again with unexpected details like those pink elbow patches on the white shirt – I love that!  There’s actually a range of elbow patches you can choose from but the pink are my favourite.

"Spanish boys Summer clothing"

Pepito by Chus is a fairly new Spanish label started by a mama of three.  I am a huge fan already and can’t wait to see what she creates for her next collection.

"French linen dresses for girls"

I wanted to start the week by sharing this effortlessly simple and stylish collection of linen dresses.  Linen is such a beautiful fabric both in look and feel and so perfect for Summer.  These dresses by Le Vestiaire de Jeane are easy to wear, loose fitting for comfort and great for dressing up or down.  The collection also includes similar dresses for women and I can’t help but think they would be so cool and comfy to wear during a Summer pregnancy and beyond. 

"soft gallery SS14""soft gallery ice-cream dress""soft gallery boys tshirt""soft gallery baby onesie balloon""soft gallery Summer 2014 kids"

Called ‘Nostalgia’ , this new Spring Summer 2014 collection by Soft Gallery is cool and unique.  I see a lot of kids clothing lines and after a while many of them start to look a bit samey.  But Soft Gallery is different and stands out from the crowd. Their illustrations are created by artists especially for their clothes and their styles are comfy and cool.  In addition to the illustrations, there are some striking prints in the collection too.  I’m loving that relaxed ice-cream dress as well as that quirky roller skating bear body. 

"made by muku spring summer 2014""linen dresses for girls""girls summer linen tops"

Spring Summer 2014 from Made by Muku is here and it’s just beautiful.  Cosy linen clothes in simple shapes and muted tones that are so comfy and practical for kids too.  My favourite is that cross-backed play suit but really, I love all the pieces.  It’s impossible not to.  

"Louise Misha SS14""louise misha Spring Summer 14""louise misha cotton scarfs""Louise Misha SS14""Louise misha Spring Summer 14"Summer 2014 by Louise Misha is beautiful.  Just look at the fresh colours, flirty styles and girly details.   It’s making me dream of a Summer full of fresh fruit, homemade lemonade, cotton candy and long sunny days spent outdoors.  I love the whole collection and I know Anya will more than approve… which little girl wouldn’t?  This collection isn’t available yet but it’s coming soon.
