With the school hols on the horizon (gulp!) and sunshine forecast for the foreseeable - we've put together an edit of our favourite independent kidswear brands (with a few twinning options!) for your little ones' summer wardrobes...
Our design-your-own tees (£20) are a great addition to your suitcase for summer hols. Airport delays, unscheduled rainy days... they're a fun, creative activity to keep little ones busy with the added bonus that they can wear their super soft, organic cotton designs all summer long!
We really rate Saltwater Sandals (from £40) for summer - waterproof leather, classic designs. In a rainbow of shades - we love the classic pillar-box red for boys and the gorgeous metallics for girls.
Our wool blankets are bestsellers but did you know we also have some organic cotton designs (£29) - perfect for summer snoozes?
Dilli Grey's Mini Dilli range has some beautiful new 'High Summer' light-weight sun dresses for little girls, with matching designs for mamas, too (£20) we love their ethical, hand-block printed designs, created by women outside Jaipur, India.
We won't travel without our Organic Sleep Tight Pillow Spray (£19) - for the aeroplane, to help soothe jetlag or to make a hotel room just feel a bit more like home. It's fab.
We love the father-son twinning trunks from Big Cat Clothing, especially these fun flamingo ones (£40). Such a sweet summer hols photo op!
For littlies, these organic cotton whale-print swaddles from Piccalilly (£12) are super useful in the summer. As a light-weight nursing cover-up, on the plane, a make-shift cot sheet... we love the bright, nautical design.
We are big Honey Rocks fans at Lala & Bea and so are our daughters. These 'Minnie Love' baskets (£28) come with a handy cross-body strap (£28), handy for travelling or trips to the beach.
Don't forget to tag us in your summer snaps in your Lala & Bea goodies on Insta - @lalaandbea - we love seeing them!
