Beautiful little bridesmaid dresses from LoveShackFancy

little bridesmaid dresses from LoveShackFancy
One of the most asked questions I receive is: Where to find lovely special occasion dresses for girls?
It is a really good question and a few staples always come to mind. But very often you are looking for something really special. Hence the name.

And I think with today’s post I will answer many questions in this department because LoveShackFancy does tick many boxes when it comes to occasional wear for girls.

A New York City-based brand that was founded in 2013 by Rebecca Hessel Cohen. Inspired by her desire to design the perfect bridesmaid dress for her own eclectic summer wedding. And started with a collection of hand-dyed silk dresses that whisper of dream escapes and special moments.

LoveShackFancy is the perfect boho, gipsy inspired and still effortless style that we love and try to catch. In essence – silk, lace, embroidery, layers and flouncy skirts are the recipe…

Whimsical, poetic and romantic styles that twirl and follow our footsteps! I love it and think that the photos really do speak for themselves.

Simple Kids A/ W 2018/19

Simple Kids A/ W 2018/19
So… we are heading towards the first week end after ‘back to school’. After a first very hesitant start for Leonor she did so well yesterday and today and just went to her classroom all confident and happy. Romy moved up to the Middle Year Program and will learn a new language (Spanish!) and start new topics like design and politics. Antoine is basically just eagerly waiting for his toe to make a full recovery. He misses football with his friends…

And for us – it means that another school year started. It shows us how quick our children are growing. Back to school is always a bit like a mirror. Where we all stand in front and see a year that has passed behind us…

But lets not get sentimental here right now. No, lets have a look at Simple Kids and their new collection. Children’s fashion from Belgium. I will not come up with my usual ravings and admiration… no no… as a good reader you know why I love it so much!

And the new Autumn/ Winter collection from Simple Kids does not disappoint. Mix cool sweaters with fabulous knits. Printed blouses, velvet pants and a few ruffles just where they add a little extra without being too girly. Perfect!

Bonpoint Autumn/ Winter 2018/ 19

bonpoint winter 2018
If you love French children’s fashion then you definitely know Bonpoint, the quintessence of French Style!
A classic and a brand that shaped the ‘French look’ like probably nobody else in the business. Created by Marie-France and Bernard Cohen – internationally renowned for their concept-store, Merci. These two also created Bonton, just to close the circle.

Bonpoint offers high quality garments for children and teenagers (the bigger sizes do fit us mums too, just FYI). Handmade in France with the best materials and each garment is unique. French magic!

The best natural knits for children!

The best natural knits for children!
Good Morning! My kids just went back to school this morning (yes already!) and after 9 weeks of summer break, everyone was ready for today!

Back to School also means – Autumn is around the corner. I know, we are all still in the summer mood and enjoy the amazing weather. (sorry for those that actually had extreme heat)
But have you noticed that the evenings are a little shorter and that it is a good idea to bring a cardigan when out late or early in the mornings?

Perfect time to look out for some great layering pieces. And knits are perfect for that! Yes, I know, I love knits and everything about them. But, again, investing in a timeless piece of gorgeous knit is one of the best things you can do. Size up, wear it as a jacket in the in between season, as a cardigan in winter and pass it on to siblings later! What is not to love?

 

Therefore, I browsed around and selected my favourite natural (think: gender neutral) knits for babies and children:

Smart family space in Stockholm’s Södermalm district

Smart family space in Stockholm's Södermalm district
Oh hello! I am back. You probably noticed that I took a tiny break, without a warning… but now we are back and I have a really smart family apartment for you today. It is Interior Tuesday after all and this small space accommodates three children.

Situated in the hip neighborhood of Södermalm in Stockholm. An old apartment with many preserved original features, beautiful windows and a lush, sunny courtyard to enjoy.

And of course I love this built in bunk bed that sleeps three children. Clever use of space!
