Schools out!! Hooray!! It's Summer! Time to push the school uniform to the back of the wardrobe and get out your Summer uniforms. For the girls pretty floral prints are a must and Freoli has the pick of the best. If you want something a bit more street look to Molo's Big Apple Inspired Butterfly print dress which looks great on it's own or teamed with Hollys shiny leggings. For the boys Katvig's sweat wear range is perfect either as a set or separates.

This brand was hatched from a little egg in 2004 by Danish friends Margit Egeskov and Marlene Eger Ullum. Discovered in a needlework book the little Ej Sikke Lej Owl was first featured on a red t-shirt and has since become the logo for the brand and often features in their designs. The little owl has since been joined by other little animals and Ej Sikke Lej produces a fantastic range of basics in a rainbow of colours.
Over the seasons the collection has been expanded with retro styled dresses, trousers and other funky essentials and most recently the brand has focused on some organic striped pieces so your little one can be fashion conscious and planet conscious.
