 Mango Stripe Dress

As soon as I saw this dress I knew that daisy had to have it. It is absolutely perfect for her! I love everything about it! I’ts on it’s way as we speak. I love stripes and I love frills and for once it goes all the way up to size 12. Mango really truly is on a roll.

P,S; I have started to update the girls shop so you amy want to take a look.

New now…

Mango has to be one of my favourite stores at the minute. It just keeps getting better and better, for both woman and children. The quality is amzing and it is always bang on trend. Beautiful details at really reasonable prices. I LOVE the rock tee and would pair with jeans and sandals for the summer. Come winter it will be just as cool with a khaki jacket and boots!

I am just a little bit in love with white jackets at the moment. They can be dressed up or down and always look so chic and timeless. I’m thinking this is something I need to add to my wardrobe. I am slightly scared at the prospect due to having children, but my love for one outways the fear. Especially when most of my style icons above look so fabulous in their’s. My favourite ones from the high street are below.

The beautiful Nellie Quats…

Nellie Quats is one of my new favourite brands for beautiful, good quality clothing for Daisy. I first discovered them last year, but unfortunely then their sizes stopped at age 8. However, undeterred, I wrote to them and asked if they were going to do bigger sizes and the lovely Elinor (founder) wrote back and said she would make a bigger size in whichever design I wanted. I put in my order and have followed them ever since growing from strength to strength. Elinor gets the designs just right, traditional but with a modern twist. Think Liberty print, pinafores and Peter Pan collars and to my excitement they now go all the way up to age 10 in some of the designs.

I have had the joy of meeting Elinor at the two Shop Up events in London and she is every bit as charming and beautiful as she comes across in her Instagram feed. Below is a recent interview.

When and how did you 1st come up with the idea of Nellie Quats?

I started designing and making my own clothes at about the age of 10 and had always wanted to do something in fashion. Even though I studied photography at University, I still felt drawn to fashion. After spending a lot of time with children at work, I was inspired to create clothing for them that allowed them to be their fun, energetic selves, whilst still looking stylish!

My parents have always run their own business so it only felt natural to do the same. So I came up with the idea of starting Nellie Quats in the summer of 2015.

What were you doing before Nellie Quats?

I was working at a sewing studio/shop for a year teaching children and adults to sew.

How do you juggle family life with working at Nellie Quats? Any tips for my readers?

As I am in my mid 20’s, I don’t have children yet (probably pretty rare for a childrenswear company!) I have serious admiration for parents who run their own businesses and have a family too. I can only hope one day I can successfully juggle it all!

What’s the best bit of running your own business?

 Being tagged on Instagram in photos of children wearing my pieces that I created, each one is just as exciting as the first ever tag. Also getting emails saying how much someone loves a piece you have made and how much their children enjoy it is just an amazing feeling.

And the worst?

Before I began self-employment, I assumed one of the perks would be to be able to take a day off if you need it, but it turns out that’s not really how it works! I currently work 7 days a week pretty much every hour of the day (and sometimes night too), and when I’m not working on it, I’m thinking about it. It’s a huge challenge to find balance in your life and time for anything other than the business.

What advice to you have for people wanting to launch their own career?

If you want to do it, just go for it. As challenging as it is, it’s incredibly rewarding. All you need is a clear idea and to be prepared to put in the hard work.
