Is that a sun I see before me ? That strange yellow circle in the sky ? must be. Looks like it’s time to get the summer clobber out of the loft and have every meal time outside. I am determined that it is summer even if I am still layered up and have hats and gloves close by. But really I do find this emergence into summer such a positive time of year, even thought he weather doesn’t always play its part correctly. I love that things are blossoming and dare I say it people seem happier. (Ok maybe I am a bit delusional there).
Anyway the Rockabye summer collection arrived two weeks ago and we hope you like it. It’s bright and cheery, edgy and fun, so what else do you want – free icecream?
So this season we have a soft grey and yellow stripe range and a light weight dark denim range which is classy and cool. The patterns take the shape of puffball dresses, dungarees (as shown) and also fully reversible denim hoodies, (which are fabulous denim one side black and white stripe the other). There is a diagonal striped tee, denim rara skirts and frill, cap sleeves fitted tee for girls with star and guitar embroidery details, and wait for it…. the return to the super short short! A unisex pattern straight from the 1970’s that looks great as swimming trunks on the beach, or fabulous for girls with or without tights. The look can be completed with a bandanna bib that looks cool tied round the neck to collect dribble or stylish glances. We want you to try it an love it so use the code BLOG25 to get 25% off at check out – Oh and delivery is free too.
If you follow us on Face book (RockabyebabyLDN) or instagram (@rockabyelondon) you will have seen the shots of the Private View held up at Shed 66 last week. It was a great evening with guests taking up the chance to buy the new lines fresh in and also drinking quite a lot of wine. Party games that included a lot of stretching and bending were hilarious and I had so much fun I will just have to do them more than once a season. I will post the next one up on FB to our followers so watch this space for an invite.
So enough about the clothes Emma, what else is going on? well Big Fish Little Fish was grooving again a few weeks ago and I heard it was a corker, especially as Roisin Murphy!!!! made a secret appearance and had everyone bopping. I am determined to get a ticket next time and take my vid camera as I really want to do a blog on this super cool phenomena that is just awesome and deserves all the awards it has received. Oh and if you can’t wait until September have a listen to the live set here.
I also thought that as many of you love your music that it would be good to let you know of some of the many family friendly music festivals that are on in the next few months.
Ta ta for now and don’t forget if you are festivaling this summer dress your kids in style and don’t give in to mainstream cute.
Love and stripey suits Emma
