This week's mini muse is the gorgeous, very almost 2 year old Darcey Arabella (@darceyarabellaetmama). We catchup with her Mama, Lauren to find out where they love to shop, where they look for inspiration and discover their styling tips.
Describe your Little one’s style. Does it match her personality?
I’ve always been very adamant as how I would dress Darcey since we found out we were having a girl. I’m all for anything on trend but try to add an item that also makes it classic & timeless. Darcey’s outfits are never complete without a Darcey accessory - hair accessories, hats, handbags and sunglasses are a no brainer (they are always her choice depending on her outlook for the day) But in all honesty, anything Spanish & a neutral tone and I’m sold!
Darcey is a Zara girl through & through. But her wardrobe consists of many sumptuous brands such as, Arket, Reserved, Little Style Stories, Freya Lillie, Tocoto Vintage, H&M & Mango. Swimming costumes are a whole other ball game & I adore putting her in, Liewood, Oii, Kuling & Búho.
What’s your favourite item of clothing for Darcey?
A romper. Nothing will compare to her in a romper. I think I’ll cry when it gets to the point when she’s outgrown them.
What was the last thing you bought for Darcey?
The most gorgeous Peter Pan neutral romper from Little Style Stories.
Darcey has had the array of rompers that Natalie has stocked, since she was born. It felt only right to buy the last one available in her size.
What's the next thing you want to buy for Darcey?
The whole of the new collection Zara has dropped would be the dream! However I am trying to be more sustainable and buy more key pieces that will go with multiple items that aren’t throw away trends.
Where do you find style inspiration for Darcey?
I always find myself scrolling through Instagram whilst Darcey is sleeping & try to find new styles & brands which help me to create Darcey’s OOTD’s.
Favourite kids style accounts to follow on Instagram?
Without any doubt -
What was your maternity style?
I pretty much lived in anything I would normally buy but sized up. Floaty boho dresses where my best friend & still are.
What beauty product could you not live without?
Clarins Double Serum, the holy grail.
Do you have any mum style hacks to share?
I think this is common knowledge, but always undress your little bundle of joy before they eat. You can clean their skin, you can’t always clean their clothes.
Thank you so much for your time Lauren. We have loved hearing Darcey's Little Style Story.
