Whistle & Flute
Whistle and Flute are a husband and wife duo based in Canada. They make hand screen printed clothing for adults and children (they have two gorgeous children themselves, one a tiny new baby - very cute instagram pics!). Their style is very fresh and modern. Simple yet bold. If you're as into monochrome as I am, you'll love their clothing. They are currently "on baby-leave" due to the new arrival but they still have some stock availble to buy. I feel their prices (including postage to the UK) are reasonable especially considering the clothes are hand screen printed on good quality clothing. I have just recently ordered a cloud print vest from them for Felix.

Handmade is Haute
Another shop I found via Instagram. This shop has me really excited. Their prices are amazing, even when you take postage to the UK into consideration. They describe themselves as offering "unique one of a kind clothes for babies and toddlers" and I cannot disagree. They currently stock leggings, harem pants and skirts. The materials available are really on trend and eye catching. You could go for something simple but still bold (shiny gold leggings anyone?) or a current trend (camo prints leggings) or something cool like the very Mini Rodini esque penguin print. Prices start from $12 (total bargain) and the clothes generally go up to age 5. If you're looking for something even more unique, they offer custom orders. I think this shop looks fantastic, I can't get over the prices. I've ordered something for Ethan & Felix and can't wait to show them off!

OK, Freshly Picked aren't new to me, and they might well not be to you either. I think I may have written about them before and they are certainly very popular on Instagram. There is a reason I am mentioning them though... Don't tell anyone, but I found out this week that they are finally going to be stocked in the UK by the rather fantastic Cissy Wears. I'm not sure when yet, but if you fancy a really gorgeous pair of handmade mocassins for your little one, these are the ones to go for! Stalk Cissy Wears for news on when they will be available!

No. Not light bulbs and accessories. Sleepwear! Yay! I think slim fitting PJs look adorable on children and The Bright Company obviously agree as that is their signature look. They stock a small but striking range of pyjamas, sleeping bags and blankets for little ones. Though the range is small, it packs a punch with bright colours and a bold print. They have a sale on at the moment. I don't have the budget left to make a purchase this month, but believe me, I will be when I can. I've totally fallen in love with their PJs.

Have I whet your appetite? Have you found inspiration via Instagram?
Our lives have been dominated by the pox again this week. Ethan is much better, but Felix is still on the mend. He has really been very ill with it, poor thing. There's not been much fashion going on, as you can imagine, but we're starting to bring the style back now:
Lion Backpack - Mibo from The Pippa & Ike Show
Fairisle knit cardigan - Primark
Orange badger print top - Mothercare
Bird print leggings - Rainbow Kids
Fox print shoes - Poco Nido via Daisychain Baby
Mountain print leggings - Saltcity Emporium
