stylish boys clothes - whistle & flute

For the last year or so my shopping eye has been very much focused on my little man. Finding stylish outfits for boys has been a challenge, I ogle floral print smocks and then find myself buying him his three hundred millionth striped top. So I'll share a few tips on the blog. Hope it helps x



T-shirt by Whistle & Flute which totally sold out (because I have great taste, obv) but this one is fab too...more coming soon

hatch jumpsuit

My girlfriend wore this jumpsuit last week to drinks (v. strong cocktails at Clover Club and dinner at Dover) and it looks amazing on. Really simple, great with heels or flats and easy to pile jewels on. Hatch design gorgeous items for pregnancy and beyond, I might have lost it but I am so tempted to get this just to float about in... imagine how much cake you could eat?

lacy lacy lacy

Bit of black lace in summer? Why not. Just add relaxed jeans and flats. I love these below, Love Sam at Shopbop (spied on my new blog crush Le Catch) and Lace Tee at Topshop. Have a great weekend x

stylish finds...shelter island and greenport

If you fancy the seaside but not the crazy hammy Hamptons I'd give Shelter Island and the little fishing village of Greenport a try. Here are some of the gems I have discovered there...

...Shelter Island...
Marie Eiffel is officially taking over the island...pop in for coffee/ croissants/ lunch/ ice cream and sit outside on the pontoon at Reddings
Her boutiques up the road stock kaftans, dresses, sandals, jewels and home wares to die for
A drink at Sunset Beach is worth it for the people watching and Vine Street Cafe is apparently the best foodie spot on Shelter

...Greenport...
Jump on the ferry and enjoy chocolate croissants and very strong coffee at Aldo's (put the kids on the carousel opposite)
Do not miss Beall and Bell antiques, some amazing finds and really good prices (open Thursday and through the weekend)
Pop in for a chat with the lovely Elizabeth at her store The Times Vintage, I picked up some great vintage tops and just missed an epic lace dress
Try Goldy and Mac for well priced dresses and tops in stylish prints and Lido for stylish beach bags, linens and throws
Book dinner at the Frisky Oyster or the famous Noah's
Make sure you try the tacos and tequila at Lucharitos and the Fork and Anchor for yummy sandwiches

Enjoy x

zara printed trousers

I spied these on a glam mum in Bleecker playground. I know. They are silky feeling (polyester mmmm hot), lightweight and nip in at the ankle. Zara online seems to have sold out but try in store as I saw a few pairs left on 5th Avenue for 24.99 USD.

beach bags

I've been looking for a new beach bag and spotted these....a simple straw bag with room for 83 bikinis at H&M, as seen on WIT blog here. A natural basket by Bodie and Fou, a gorgeous Palm Basket with silvery handles, a cotton canvas Circle Tote in grey and white (of course) and the New York classic (which they love to monogram) Boat and Tote at L.L.Bean.  Have a great weekend x

topshop blouse

This is one of the best around. My Mango one went a bit off white, the H&M one burnt when I attempted to iron it...ha ha I'm not very domesticated...and then I saw this one looking  rather pretty here. It will last into Autumn if you layer it and/or add a leather jacket (or this gorgeous suede one...ok I'm stalking now). Snap it up, not many left.
