dressing for spring

Modern European British Fashion for Girls and Boys

Yep, there may still be two feet of snow on the ground outside my window, but spring is so close I can taste it on the air! Next Direct’s new catalog arrived today, and it was the perfect moment for a little spring daydreaming. Based in the UK (but shipping from Florida for all of you US pals), they’re a one stop online shop for all kinds of affordable fashion must-haves.

It’s a little bit boho, a little bit Mini Boden/Euro-Prep, with everything in between. Dresses for Birdie average around $20 – some  even lower, and jeans for girls and boys are around $24. Some of it feels a little Euro-trashy to me – especially the women’s clothing (it’s like Newport News, sort of), but I promise you’ll find some golden tickets among the selections. Instead of trying to pull just one or two items for you, I was too overwhelmed by the choices – so you’ll have to go do some digging on your own! (Ok, if you’re really curious, I think she needs a pair of these jeans, this dress, and this romper, for starters).

I just heard that you could shop Next over here, thanks for the confirmation. Next was always my go-to store for weddings, funerals and interviews as a student. Some of the kids stuff looks cute.

I thought they might have stores here now, but I couldn’t find info on the website. I vaguely remember their stores last time I was in London, glad to know a true Brit is on my side on this one ;)

CUTE! I love the romper, I am a huge sucker for rompers, loved them when I was little and can’t wait to dress my little girl in them. Oh and those jeans, Birdie must have them!
