This week I have the absolute pleasure of showcasing the wonderful British Brand Two Littles. Lovely Mum of two Kate officially launched Two Littles in June of this year after over a year of planning and designing behind the scenes. Looking through Kate’s website and array of amazing designs its hard to believe that they’ve only been ‘live’ for a few short months. With a background in the garment personalisation industry its meant that Two Littles have their own HQ and are able to keep all their design work and printing in house. The minute I received our garments from Two Littles I could easily see that Kate puts everything into her business, the fantastic quality and attention to detail are easy to see.
We were very lucky to receive two bundles from Two Littles, one for Allana and one for Willow. If you follow me on social media you may have seen me open our parcel very excitedly on my Instagram story a few weeks ago.
Each bundle came beautifully tied together and I was instantly drawn to the lovely tags attached to the clothes. The labels have their signature logo and washing instructions but what I loved was the attention to detail with their ‘confetti triangle’ print on the reverse of the labels.
Something that I love and find so unique and special about Two Littles is the meaning behind each design. All of their designs are inspired by Kate’s littles ones doodles, sayings and interests, I can’t think of a more wonderful way of memorialising their childhoods.
I might be a little obsessed with this Bambino Hooded Tee, I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve washed it just so Allana could wear it again, luckily the garment quality is amazing so even with all the washing and drying it still looks like new.
‘Having visited Italy a number of times the Two Littles family are fans of both the country and their family values, this has resulted in the word ‘Bambino’ featuring regularly in their household and often a word they call their littles.’
The Penguin Tee has proven to be a favourite in Willows wardrobe. She appears to think a penguin makes a ‘quacking’ noise so has taken to pointing at her top, shouted penguin and following it with a waddle and quack! Seeing as she has started to say ‘no’ to certain items of clothing I’m finding it quite a relief that she has such an attachment to this tee.
‘The Penguin design first started as a doodle. Kate says she often looks at her children’s doodles in the same way we might look at clouds and this particular drawing shouted penguin to her. She made a few tweaks and before long this super cute design was born.’
Having recently become very aware of the moon and stars I knew this tee would be an instant hit with Willow. ‘Luna’ was also a name we toyed over for a while when picking Willow’s name so I felt an instant love for it too.
‘Kate’s eldest Grace and now her youngest, Rory love looking at the moon and stars and are fascinated by rockets. They’ve put a slightly grungy twist on this design and I couldn’t love it more!!’
This Confetti Triangle V2 Tee literally goes with everything and is now a staple in Allana’s wardrobe. The long sleeves are perfect for the cooler weather we’re now having and I think it will be great to layer as we step into Winter too.
‘This is V2 as it is the second version of this design. Its a design that Two Littles will carry throughout as it has now become part of their brand image- the design even features on the clothing tags!’
This Hearts in a Row design is a perfect addition to Willows wardrobe, being grey it compliments the majority of her bottoms. I think this will look crazy cute teamed with a pair of shorts, tights and little booties, a perfect Autumn/Winter outfit.
‘This is a design Kate especially made for her little girl Grace, she loved the stand alone heart design in their Spring/Summer collection and absolutely loves this one too. Grace hopes other boys and girls love it as much as her and its safe to say we do.’
This Little One Hoody couldn’t have come at a better time, I was already on the hunt for a comfy cosy Hoody for the Autumn/ Winter months so I may have been a tad over excited when this arrived in our parcel. I can’t actually cope with how adorable Allana looks wearing this and the detail on the back just adds a whole other level of cute.
‘This is another word that the Two Littles family use, Kate thinks she probably over uses it but I’m not sure thats possible. I know its definitely how I regularly describe my girls too. They’ve also incorporated a few bits of Grace’s doodles to this design, I think these little touches make this design simply perfect.’
I have been truly impressed with the quality of both the garments and the print. Not only is the material super soft but it also washes so well, we’ve had no problems with the tops shrinking in the wash and the girls certainly seem comfy in their new clothes. Where possible Two Littles source their garments in the UK but also from American Apparel garments for a few of their items, their main focus is to produce high quality products and this is definitely obvious from their product choices. The print it self has also withstood all the washing that comes with being worn by little ones.
I sized up slightly for my girls, Allana is now 11 months (but quite a chunky monkey) so I decided to order size 1-2 year for her, I’m glad I did as the tops will last much longer and will be easier to layer through winter. Willow is currently in that awkward in between stage, 2-3 is usually too small but 3-4 can be a little on the big side. I went for 3-4 year in her clothing and again I’m glad I did, I actually really love the ‘oversized’ look on Willow and rolling up the sleeves slightly on the long sleeved tees looks very cute and stylish.
I can easily, hand on heart say we’ll definitely be ordering from Two Littles again in the future, having seen they’re wonderful Autumn/Winter collection I’m so excited to see what designs they come up with for Christmas and the future.
