Baby’s first Christmas: the perfect Christmas stocking

Christmas stockingAlthough he won’t understand as much as his older (and very excited) sister, this is still baby D’s first Christmas. He’s already intrigued about the tree, the twinkly lights and lots of sparkly decorations hanging tantilisingly close to where he rolls.

He’s not lacking in baby toys or hand-me-down clothes (even though there tends to be a pink bias) but we’re making sure he’ll have his fair share of things to tear open and bite on come Christmas day. And one thing he already has is his own brand new stocking, courtesy of The White Company.

Baby D has the Dotty Stocking. It’s a chunky, stretchy knit in a stylish Scando-style. It looks homemade, is unisex and is pretty big – on the verge of a sack, actually. And the very good news is it’s currently on sale with 30% off, so it’s £24.50 (as at 12th December 2015).

We’re stocking up on chewable, rattle-able toys to fit inside and I’m hoping he’ll love pulling them out. We’ll just have to make sure he doesn’t wriggle inside the stocking himself on Christmas day!

Thanks to The White Company for the Dotty Stocking.

 

The White Company: White Label preview

White Company white label previewI’m a big fan of The White Company (who isn’t?) for presents, treats and gorgeous clothes and toys for little ones. They also come into their own at Christmas. But aside from some PJs and dressing gowns, I don’t own any grown up White Company clothes.

That’s about to change with the launch of White Label, their new Spring/Summer 2016 range and the name for all future White Company clothes, which I was lucky enough to preview last week. The first thing that struck me was the colour. Still in tasteful White Company tones, there seemed to be a larger colour palate than before.

Also texture – pretty lace and delicate silks, thick denim and soft cottons. I spotted so many things that I’d love to have. I overheard a fashion editor talking about it being ‘perfect for the school run’. If I ever look that elegant for the school drop off, I’d be very pleased! I was thinking more smart casual weekend and evenings and some would be perfect for workwear. And the styles would flatter many figures.

As I browsed I sampled some Jing tea which is soon to be available at The White Company. The green tea had a delicate flavour and wasn’t at all bitter and the Jasmine was fragrant and delicious. Previously available at hotels and restaurants and via Jing’s website, this is the first time they’ve partnered with a retailer and I’m sure it will be a fruitful relationship.

Jing tea’s shortly to be stocked while the White Label clothes are available from end of January next year. Here are a few of my favourite items:

I love this denim dress. It could be worn with leggings or tanned legs (optimistic) and should skim the curves nicely.

The first time the White Company have made the step up from flats to heels – and a very promising start!

Easy to wear and pretty, I love this silky top.

And finally a white top! A pretty knitted sweater which could be dressed up or down. Lovely.

Jingle bells in July: The White Company Christmas list

White Company Christmas 2014 CollageDefinitely the first time I’ve enjoyed mulled wine in July surrounded by decorations, presents and crackers; I was lucky enough to have a preview of The White Company’s Christmas range recently.

Some beautifully decorated rooms dressed almost entirely with White Company products (I didn’t know they even did sofas – very Continue reading
