Carmen wears Nadadelazos #whatthekidswore

Carmen is one of our most loyal customers and wears Our Kid with real style. It's no surprise she's a natural in front of the camera as mum Natalie is a bit of a hit on instagram with her daily posts @whatthekidswore about her lovely family's sartorial style. 

If you fancy your little one in this beautiful playsuit by Nadadelazos we still have a couple on stock with 20% discount in our summer sale. Don't forget to post a pic if you love your Our Kid purchase, we're online @ourkidsocial on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and you might even fancy letting Natalie know over at #whatthekidswore.

Bubble London: Part 1 Stockpiling for Autumn/Winter 2014

We've just been on a Spring/Summer '15 buying trip to London taking in top trade show Bubble along with appointments at our favourite labels Ruff&Huddle and Boys&Girls. Having spotted some interesting new talent emerging during our last jaunt, we felt ready to place orders to take us through the winter season and into 2015.

Our first 'ohmygoditmakesmyheartsing' moment came early on with the discovery of The Bright Company, a super cool kids pyjama and bedding brand. Think strong graphic prints with colour pops in the softest slim jym jersey. We'll be welcoming them to the Our Kid family for AW14 so make a note to invest early in your festive pyjamas as these little beauties won't hang around for long. 

Any regulars at our pop-up events will be familiar with our signature knitted leggings (coming to the site soon). The only downside to this hugely popular range is that it starts at 6 months leaving all the squiddly little babies out in the cold. With this in mind, we've decided to take on Slugs&Snails for AW14, the original tights for boys brand that has branched out into a rainbow range of irresistible designs and patterns for girls too. Available on the site from August.

Having sweated our bumps off inside Bubble, we hot footed it over to a private appointment with our old friends Ruff&Huddle. This has got to be THE coolest kids streetwear brand in the UK and we miss them in our life having only stocked them for one season. These are real investment pieces and we're in the final throes of making a decision on a few key styles for special occasions. I mean really, can we afford to resist??

Keep an eye out for our Spring/Summer 2015 kids clothing trends article coming soon...

10 Cool Ideas for Toddler Tents and Beds


At Our Kid towers we're at varying stages of our toddlers' transition from cot to bed. Laura made a daring break from the bars a couple of months ago and has since been enjoying 5am starts with Sam rat-a-tat-tatting on her head most mornings. Kate and myself are not so brave and as yet, have resisted upgrading our kids into a big boy bed. But having spotted some real bedroom beauties on Cuckooland methinks the time is fast approaching to unleash Jack from his Stokke cot. Inspired by the sheer decadence and wow-factor of these creations alongside the dreamy appeal of a cosy den, we've put together 10 cool ideas for toddler tents and beds on a neat little Pinterest board which you can enjoy here
