Diane von Furstenberg for

Eager fashionista mummy's are waiting in anticipation for the launch of the new collection from fashion powerhouse Daine von Furstenberg for Gap Kids (US), that will be available 15th March in the US.

Her wrap over dress creations in vibrant funky prints have been brightening up the boardroom for seasons, with many empowered women wearing them as an alternative for business attire. In the behind the scenes video on, Diane declares "A little girls, the minute she is born, is already the woman she will be" and later asks a young model if she feels the outfit is "chic". Cute video take a look!

The silhouette from the kids collection does mirror her simple designs and include shift dresses, shorts and cropped trousers but her trademark prints make the statements!

There is a lovely blocky print that comes in a array of fantastical bright primary colourways!

Diane, a mother and grandmother herself follows in the footsteps of Stella MaCartney who debuted her skill in childrenswear design when she designed for Gap a few seasons ago before launching her own childrenswear label. I am guessing that just like Stella, Diane's collection will be a sell out!

Chill . Out . Girl .

Millie came up with the title and the idea of today's blog entry, she is off school for half term and I asked if she would like to help me which she was very excited about! She came up with the outfit's and the whole styling of the photos! A great blogger in the making! Oh do you like the green bobble hat? I made the bobble last night using a whole ball of wool! 

Millie loves nothing more than playing, whether that's at the park, in her bedroom making up dance routines or just reading a book! And Danish label BiFrost design perfect outfits for kids with Millie's eNeRGy!

I love these harem pants as they are just so funky and Millie loves them because they are comfy, teamed with an equally comfy tee and slip on pumps Millie is off! The pants also will work well in summer, with brights being a trend that will be seen again for SS12 and more looser structured lines being prominent for kidswear as seen in the CIFF Trend Shows.

Harem Pants from

I love these harem pants from label Lofff, the great shape and lovely leaf print would look great with a white tee and attitude!

This full circle skater style skirt mimics the trend for skater skirts we saw last season for women, and with the elastic waist it fits well on Millie's waist without digging in to her. To brighten the look up I have added some heart print leggings, which are again super comfy!

Plastisock Leggings £17.99 from

Little Remix Leggings £53.99 from

Leggings as a whole have mixed reports and I prefer the leggings from labels such as Plastisock that are great quality, and I love the ankle cuff detail which looks great with little flat pumps. Try Nordic Kids or Joules for great versions!

Junior Joules Leggings now on sale at

Well to end the day of blogging, Monopoly and painting, we decided to go to the local shop for some chocolate. It was pretty rubbish weather outside so Millie had to wrap up... her way!

Spot Light on: Quirky Collective

On-line shopping has to be the best invention of the technical age! It means that you don't have to remove yourself (and kids) from your warm sofa to browse beautiful clothing, whats more delivery times are uber fast and returns have become so much more simple (if needed)... Perfect!

One on-line shop that seems to be making me bankrupt is Quirky Collective!

Quirky Collective was set up by a quirky mum after people complimented the way that her daughters were dressed! The idea was born out of a wish to present her favourite clothing brands from her children’s wardrobes, and create a platform on how well those brands understand what it means to be a child. Michelle, Millie will defo be wearing from your site!

 Now in sale too, here is a selection of just some of the items I love!

bobo choses school bag now £42.00
 This bag would be great for me too, the colour and the star design is just so coooool, plus the leather is great quality! Millie would have this for years and the older it got the better it would look (if poss!)

babylady inc harem pants £42.00
 If theres an outfit I would love to copy from head to toe for Millie it has to be this! The collar over the tee (see below), the shorts and the whole colour combinations is what makes me love this quirky outfit!

marie et rose-alice collar £32.00

This collar as featured above would become a staple to update any outfit, wear over tees, knitwear and dresses the collar is multi-functional and multi-funky!

Milibe jersey dress now £18.00
I have blogged about the label Milibe before and am super excited that these jersey dresses are in sale too! An easy to wear dress that can be dressed up and down and super useful as a cover up for those summer holidays that are approaching (soon I hope!)

marie et rose-alice shorts now £8.00
The layering trend always looks fab on children and also keeps them warm! These little shorts look fab over the stripe leggings and will look just as good in the summer with cute sandals!

marie et rose-alice rousers now £15.00
These harem style leggings are just so effortlessly cool and have a very Japanese look to them, I love how they have been pulled up with braces to create a different shape!

All in all I am very impressed with the selection of labels on this site and the fact they deliver within 1-3 days and take returns after 14 days.
