Style your Spring Popsy and Mama wardrobe


With Spring now in full swing and the weather showing those promising signs of warming up, have you been wondering what to pair your new Popsy and Mama Spring Collection orders with? We've been doing some high street virtual shopping to bring you some great ideas to complete your outfits ...


Popsy and Mama Spring styling ideas


Happy Friday! It's been a while since we published a blog post, we've been busy getting your spring orders made and taking a little time away from the social side of things. It felt right to take a little step back and reflect on what is happening in the world!


While we've been enjoying half-term and watching the sun start to tempt us with its face, we have been reflecting on the awful situation that is unfolding in Ukraine. We appreciate it is on lots of our minds and didn't want to brush it under the carpet and not share our solitude for the Ukrainian's who are having their country ripped apart in the most dreadful way. Our thoughts are with them and we remain in hope that something can be done to stop it all.


We are in the midst of preparing for Poppy's 10th Birthday and I have made a start on her birthday cake for the weekend, everything is about Harry Potter these days and she's chosen a Monster Book of Monsters cake - wish me luck! Whilst it may not look entirely like the photo we have pinned on Pinterest it will be made with love and pride. I've been enjoying making her birthday cakes for the last 10 years and I really do enjoy it!


Thank you for your wonderful Spring orders

A huge big thank you for your Spring orders. I'm thrilled you love the new prints as much as me! There have been some big favourites with you and I can see you're loving the popular story inspired prints of The Snail and the Whale, Dear Zoo and The very hungry caterpillar! We have some classics in this collection too, with Little Women proving a popular choice too. I personally am loving your preference for the bolder, brighter coloured prints and I've made some changes to future collections to reflect this. I have also made the decision to move solely to Childhood Tales and will no longer feature any non story inspired prints; it feels a bold decision but it's clear from your orders that these are you preferred options at Popsy and Mama.


Spring styling ideas

As Spring orders are dropping onto your doormats, I thought it was a good time to talk styling ideas. I always get excited about deciding what to pair Poppy's new clothes with - and I know my Brand Reps do too.


So, my rep team and I have been keeping ourselves busy finding lots of lovely outfit choices for you and we really hope you find some inspiration in the merging shop small and the high street.


Please share your pictures with me by tagging @popsyandmama and #popsyandmama when you get your order. I'd love to see what you all style the new Spring prints with.


Happy reading and have a fabulous weekend.

Love

Sammie xx

 

Spring Outfit Ideas



Borrowed From Beans

We are loving the bright colours that are available this season and really hope it carries on into the summer. We have picked some gorgeous items from Zara to twin with our Borrowed from Beans print, just imagine a cute t-shirt under this shirt and shorts combo with the lilac of the jelly shoes really picking out some fun

Some other shopping ideas include - picking out one of the accent colours in the print and heading to George at Asda for the loveliest tops and those sneakers are so darn cute. Or twinning with a gorgeous Hooked By A Fin handmade bonnet, sandals from H&M and vests from George at Asda



Lift Wanted

Lift Wanted inspired by the much loved story Snail and the Whale, has proved such a popular design with you all! We love the colours and the fact that it's blue always ticks the happy clothes box for me. We have teamed our cute sleeveless dress with the sweetest baby items below and picked out some funky items for boys too.

I Wrote To The Zoo

The fun and colourful styling of this design has captured a lot of your hearts. It was a favourite story of Poppy's when she was little. The neutral background and bright colours of the elements makes this fabulous to coordinate with lots of high street items. Some of our favourite items are from Zara, George at Asda, H&M, Gap, Organic Zoo and Dr Martens.

Sisters

One of my all time favourite classic novels, Little Women inspired this print and I couldn't love it more. The subtle colours of this print lend themselves to rich dark burgundy coordinates as well as pastels, giving you lots of options to style.

With it's neutral palette and flash of colour Spring Folk lends itself to easy high street coordination. We have used La Redoute, Schuh, Hooked By A Fin and Zara as our best picks.

Who remembers reading Black Beauty? I loved that horse so much! The soft elements and rich detail on this design works so well with some stunning high street items. Izzy wears our Sleeveless dress at the start of the blog, teamed with some lovely items from H&M.

We hope we have shared some high street and small shop inspiration to coordinate with your favourite Popsy and Mama Spring outfits.


A massive big thank you to my reps Wendy, Cala, Charlotte, Emily, Emily, Hannah, Jamie-Lee and Jo for helping me pull these ideas together - a job shared is a job made so much easier and you all made this so much easier for me xx


Our Favourite Brands to Shop for Coordinates


Talking to my Reps about the coordinate we love to buy to go with our Popsy and Mama essentials, we thought we would share the ones we love the most

  • Zara is a favourite due to the neutral colour coordinates and the longevity of their products, allowing us to pass them down to younger siblings or gift them onto friends or family

  • H&M is a must for those of us wanting planet conscious children's clothes, they are by far the leaders in our minds to being committed to reducing waste and using recycled materials

  • Next have a fabulous basics range that compliments so many of the Popsy and Mama prints

  • Kidly is a real favourite amongst a lot of the team and their gorgeous fabrics and wonderful colours make them perfect for twinning with our collection

  • TU at Sainsbury's is a great budget option for stylish coordinates

  • Our favourite bonnets are made by one of our team members Hooked By A Fin
