Oliver and Alexander at me&i partyLast week excitingly saw me host a style party in my home for one of the most coveted brands in Sweden, me&i.

I’ve reviewed their clothes for over a year now and adore working with such a stylish company whose collections for kids and women are absolutely this family’s collective style – vibrant, unisex kidswear and understated, classic womenswear.

As you can see above, Lina, the me&i representative, had some sweet little helpers on the day.

My sons, Oliver and Alexander carefully hung clothes up before the party  began and took so much pleasure in assisting.

It’s times like this I couldn’t be more proud of those little boys.

Here’s the cutest little film from the day if you fancy a peek before I take through the party in pictures:

We were so lucky with the weather too, it was March yet felt like a summer’s day so when my friends and their families arrived, it was time to play in the garden pre party!

Not before wellies on of course!

Oliver wears v-neck tee with anchor and coolest jeans and Xander wears feline-fronted top, One Black Cat t-shirt and coolest jeans too. You can see a post dedicated to their style HERE.

Then it was food before passion with my parents kindly providing the gorgeous Greek feast from their award winning restaurants The Olive Tree which was yummy!

Spinach pie, meatballs, falafels, potato keftedes, Greek salad and much more…

me&i parties are totally relaxed with no pressure to buy of course, they are just a fun way to meet up with friends while checking out stunning clothes that are distinctive and original that you can’t find on the high street.

It was such a joyous day, fabulous friends and their kids coming together for a catch up, lunch and shop.

…I’m a huge fan of me&i’s black dresses, the perfect frock for day or night, flattering and figure hugging in all the right places, so opted for their classic boatneck dress for the day.

I will be showcasing more pictures over on Mummy’s Got Style this Friday but here’s a taster…

I must also thanks me&i for making me a TOTAL jeans convert too.

I have honestly never found jeans like the ones in their collection which are firstly ultra-flattering while being comfortable too, pulling you in and making your legs appear endless.

So much so, a friend of mine was convinced to buy some herself when she saw me quickly change into them at the end of the party.

I’m proud to note I now also fit into the size I wore pre-kids at 27.

It’s not been easy but I’ve gotten back into ‘my pre- both pregnancies jeans’ eventually, even if they’re actually a new pair. I promise I will dedicate a whole post to me&i jeans next month as we didn’t get chance to snap them this time, and they’re frankly too gorgeous not to share.

So there you have it, a wonderful day full of sunshine, marvellous mates, glorious Greek food and gorgeous happy-making super stylish clothes, I couldn’t recommend having a party more!

    What a cute video! Alexander running after the ball is just so adorable… and that T-shirt! The bold prints and patterns are exactly my little Jumpy’s style (funny how each of them has their own style. My kids must be French!).

      I love that! They are! My kids are part French so that will account for their great taste in clothes. They pick out their own stuff! So glad you liked the film too x

    Gorgeous clothes! What a brilliant way to shop! No hassle like when going to the shops, but unlike online you can do it in the company of friends!

    Food looks fab too

      I know, it’s such a sociable joyous way to shop, especially with kids, which can be so hard on the high street x

    What a fantastic way to shop for clothes (although you’ll understand I’d only be buying for the kids). I love the colours in the me&i range, such a bright collection. Looks like a good range of casual and smart clothes too. I can see my two wearing quite a few of those items.

    I also can’t help but notice the olive tree outside your front door. Clearly a subliminal message about your parents’ restaurants!!

    Thanks darling, it was so much fun and the clothes are utterly gorgeous, I am obsessed with their jeans, the best I’ve ever worn over designer and high street jeans. Will let you know when the jeans post is live xx

    Well this looked like a whole lotta fun! The kids looked like they had a smashing time. I’m always so impressed with A’s footie skills. Oh my goodness, the food looked incredible – The Olive Tree need to open a branch in Surrey… Your dress was a knockout – I totally get the achievement of losing the weight. I’m slimmer than my wedding day – it’s an actual miracle! I’m so, so eager to see those jeans. I never wore them pre-pregnancy and now I wear jeans a lot. I find they can be so disappointing, fitting fine in-store and then they start falling down and behaving weirdly once you get them home and start wearing them. Anyhoo, this looks like a fab thing to do with friends and can’t wait to see the jeans post! Xx
