Little Bird

We can be so blinded by the bright lights of high end fashion with all the glossy Look Books, Magazine shoots and catwalks that we by-pass gems on the high street.  One such hidden gem is Little Bird by Jools Oliver at Mothercare.  Heavily influence by the nostalgia of her childhood, there is a definite 70's feel.  Lots of rainbow trims, pretty ditsy and cool stripes.  I think the key to this collection is simplicity, it isn't over embellished or designed.  For example there is a navy cord dress, with patch pocket detailing at the front and that is it....no motif, no contrast trim.  This may seem quite insignificant, but actually it is a great achievement.

Styling is easy going and contrasting, I love that delicate ditsy's are teamed up with chunky stripe Tee's and bright tights.  If you are a regular reader you will know that we love kidswear that is not over styled and Little Bird hits the nail on the head, take a look at some of the range below.  However, one major factor in this range are the red T-bar shoes.  They are the original 70's design that have Jools Oliver had as a child and were found in the Mothercare archives.  Just gorgeous, I hope that they continue to do them in a range of colours!

The great thing about this range is that it is affordable, especially in this current climate.  There is lots more to see here http://www.mothercare.com/little-bird/clothing (All Rights & Images Reserved Mothercare UK)
