Cool yet sophisticated kid’s styles for Autumn

morley for kids

I know, I know… you do not want to really hear about Autumn collections at the moment. I get it.

B U T exceptions are there to break the rules and sometimes things are just too good to not to be shared. So just try to think outside the box a little and about finding the best pieces of the new season before they are gone.

Belgian brand Morley has been a favourite of mine for a long time (and you know that). And I just came across their new lookbook and also discovered that the new collection is already in the shops*.
Yay!

The Autumn/ Winter season is always a tad more interesting (than summer) because there is just more to mix and match. More textures, fabrics and details. Knits, blouses, collars, and quirky socks. Plenty to play with!

Have a look:

And Morley just came with this ‘Western’ theme that is so cool. Checked shirts, corduroy, rusty colours, fun hats and a whole lot of wonderful. Do you already love it as much as I do?

Shop cool tween styles online!

Shop cool tween styles online!

Today we are talking about a topic that is more and more present in my own life as well – where to shop cool tween styles? Especially online?

Truth is that most children’s fashion designers stop at age 10 (on average), some may go up a bit more but the French or Belgium brands, for example, size so small that a size 16 just about fits my 12-year-old.

The industry caught up and there are indeed more teen or tween brands around, but the shopping part stays tricky. Why? Because a lot of shops stop at around age 10 as well…

And then I got an email from Jessica who is the owner of online kids boutique Little Skye who asked me if we can collaborate. A quick look at her shop and I said yes. Because she has a whole category dedicated to tweens!

So if you are the same as me, with a tween at home, and you are not inspired by the high street you have to check this out. Kids trendy clothing, a great mix of easy to wear as well as fashion brands, from urban wear to boho chic. And every piece is age appropriate, cute, and tween-approved. Think crop tops that aren’t too cropped, cool shorts, fun sweaters and more staples to wear again and again…

Do you wonder how everything can be tween approved and selected? Jessica and her colleagues are always double checking with their own tweens. They even take them to fashion shows to get immediate feedback and selections.

So what is currently the hit in tween clothing?

Denim shorts – basically never out of style and choosing a high waisted version makes the crop top easier too. (as a tip!)
Yellow – the colour of this summer and it will stay a bit from what I saw at the fairs over the last weeks. (trend report following)
Athleisure – athletic leisure wear is still in vogue. Sporty, casual, stylish and cool. T H E look.
Anything tropical, like pineapple prints or palm appliques.  Flamingos, toucans, coconuts… you name it!
Playsuits – tweens are loving these easy pieces and you can find them in many variations.
Cropped tops!

From my own tween I can confirm the above trends. And also that dresses are not an element anymore, or at least only very rarely. And she loves hip accessories like cute hair ties, fun socks, or a quirky backpack.

I find this phase very interesting and also like to discover what my daughter enjoys and what she is drawn to. For now it is all shorts, fun t shirt, sandals or sneakers and a casual jumper. Life can be so easy… and I definitively enjoy the athleisure wave. Chic but comfortable!

No tween yet? Little Skye has plenty of trendy girls clothes for other ages too!

26 fun things for your July!

26 fun things for your July!

Are you watching the Women Football World Cup? We do and I am so happy and proud that my kids follow it with the same enthusiasm as they watched last years Men’s World Cup. And I have to say that I so impressed on how these teams have progressed…
But of course, women football is light years away from the men and when you read this article about their earnings and sacrifices. It makes you cringe. A lot!

On the other hand, I hope that you all manage to stay cool! And hydrated…

I gathered, picked, selected and curated (ah, one of those overused words from 2018) my favourites for a very happy month of July for you! Enjoy:

Beautiful linen clothing for small and big people

All the beautiful linen

One reason why I keep on showing you beautiful linen clothing is that it is one of my favourite fabrics. What is wool in winter is linen in summer.

Even so I actually do wear wool in summer too and linen during winter times. Just swapping for lighter knits and heavy linen for the seasons.

And when I see beautiful images that manage to show the beauty and quality of linen (or knits, but today we are talking linen… knits will be on focus after summer again) I just cannot resist. It is so great to wear, easy, always chic without being too cute or too girly. Maybe I hope to convince you step by step (in case you are not so into linen yet)… but mostly I just love to share lovely things!

So when I found this oh so inspiring shop* full of linen goods for children, home as well as women… well I was smitten right away!

 

All the beautiful linen

I think you can see why, right?

The colours, the little frills, easy to wear rompers, and the sweet bonnets* that always add a cute little detail.

Adding lovely embroidery makes it even more stunning! Loving the skirts*….

And what about green? Still a very popular colour and this shade is so lively and cool – would totally wear this dress* in my size.

All the beautiful linen for all the beautiful homes!

 

Love linen as much as I do? How about Flora & Dott or Tiny Stories – linen for babies.
