The Sausage Dog Edit

 
Paul & Paula: The Sausage Dog Edit

Good Morning! A crazy week is upon us here… today is the last day in our apartment because tomorrow the moving company will ring the bell very early and start packing our belongings. After 5 years you just make a lot of memories…

And the Sausage Dog idea actually came, because Romy always tells me about dogs and she knows all the different types, races and breeds. And she loves Sausage Dogs…

So, one day I found this cool bedding and the throw and went looking for more, because surely there are more Sausage Dog enthusiasts?!

Enjoy the edit:

 

[read more=”Read more” less=”Read less”]

1. Very cool print. So simple!

2. Sparkling hair clips. Perfect as a stocking filler for a dog lover.

3. Bedding set from Donna Wilson. Not only for kids…

4. Cushion from oy oy. Woof!

5. Pull-Along Dog with mathematic operations. In blue or pink.

6. Large wooden pull-along dog. Love the ears…

7. Cats and dogs organic romper.

8. Cats and Dogs organic sweater.

9. Sausage dog throw. Again, not only for kids and probably a great gift for a person who loves dogs or has a sausage dog.

10. Skateboard hot dog. Love it, so funny!

11. Crochet sausage dog in various colours!

The serenity of snowy woods transformed into children’s clothing

eden & zoe

Melissa from Eden & Zoe recently launched her new collection called ‘Winter Woods’. And it is her daughters favourite poem called “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening” by Robert Frost that was the inspiration behind it.

I love that Melissa always refers to her own children when designing new collections. It is very sweet and touching!
And I always feel like being part of her family for a tiny bit. We met once, during our family road trip, and I was lucky to get to know Melissa and two of her girls for a little more. So, when I see the new images, that always feature her girls as models, and the inspiration reference – it is a lovely reminder of the morning we spent together!

So, the beauty and serenity of snowy woods are transformed into another adorable collection from Eden & Zoe for this Autumn/ Winter. My favourite piece is definitely the elegant Tamsin dress. A cashmere/merino top with a tweed skirt – now, how perfect for the upcoming festive season!

And great news – the sizing went up again and the brand caters up to 14 years now. Fantastic!

Altogether, this is a lovely collection that mixes some festive pieces with great every day staples (love the Celine jumper!) and a lot of cosiness in form of knits and faux fur!

Beautiful!

The eccentric alternative to romantic festive wear for children

nununu tutu du monde collaboration

Ok, so this is definitely my most anticipated launch for this year. I saw this uber-awesome collaboration during Playtime in January and was instantly in love.
In L O V E!

Why? Because I love when worlds are clashing. When two very opposite designers join forces. Where creativity overrules. When great meets great – just from different points of view.

Tutu du Monde X nununu.

The ultra-romantic tutu lab and the alternative kids wear label that loves black. Yes! And it is finally in store!

Just think goth-punk glamour meeting the ultimate holiday smash! Lots of tulle and embroidered skulls, layers, sequins, black, and rock. L O V E! Did I mention, that I love it? I do! haha

And it is so perfect for my own little princesses here at home! No girl says no to a little bit of glam and sparkle. Adding a good portion of cool and my girls got sparkles in their eyes.

That onesie is just too much with the tulle ruffles where the little legs come out and the skull patch. And adding that amazing cape (it truly is amazing!) and we were treated with a whole show of fun expressions and poses.

Oh, and tulle bunny ears? Cocked to the side and with lots of sparkles. Yes, please!

And Leonor’s very relaxed yet sophisticated cool look is so good for all these exciting days before the BIG days.

Does that even make sense? I guess you know what I mean. A black sweater with a ruffled collar (including some tulle) and this layered skirt that looks fantastic with some hi-tops or boots like we did here.

Altogether – we are ready! We are sparkling and once we moved we will put some festive decorations up. Not too much to start with, but a little…

I hope you love this collaboration as much as I do and if I can make a wish: I would like to see more of these creative, inspiring and unexpected alliances.

In collaboration with nununu, a true and trusted long-term partner of Paul & Paula. We love their style since what feels forever and enjoy following their always adventurous journey!

15 happy things for your October!

Paul & Paula 15 things for October
Oh hello! At the moment I am not so sure how I feel about Fridays. On the one hand, I am happy for the weekend to start. On the other hand, I feel like time is literally rushing through. Another week has gone by… waaaaahhh…

I cannot wait to slow down again and breathe. We do have a really great holiday coming up for the Winter break (Dec/Jan) and I just love the pre-excitement before going away. This time even more, because we all really need a break. To relax, to spend time together (slow and quality) and do not follow any wake-up calls, appointments, and other commitments.

How about you?

I do love autumn very much and this year we are lucky to see some sun shining through the pretty leaves as well. But I can also see that this is always a rather hard period for the children. Between the middle of August when they went to school and the very end of October – it is a long period of school weeks. On top the days are getting shorter, the mornings are dark and a little chilly. Everyone is tired. Do you feel the same?

Nevertheless, I have gathered quite a few cool finds as well as reads for you. I hope that you will enjoy them:

Why Joséphine loves her new autumn shoes!

falcotto autumn shoes for young children

My little Jo is growing and just turned 3. Being the youngest of four she definitely picked up lots of things from her siblings and is quite ‘advanced’ for her age.

And of course she wants, can and needs to do everything by herself. So when it came to picking a pair of new shoes for autumn, I knew that we needed a pair that she can put on by herself.
And they need to be fun and somehow cute too. Of course. That probably goes without saying, haha.

So once her new autumn shoes arrived and we took them out of the box, little Miss Jo started putting them on like a pro. As a next, step she started to discover the beautiful embroideries. Which then became a little language play and we found all the names in all languages we have in the family together.

This delightful shoe is adorned with hearts, butterflies, and stars and makes a really cool yet romantic sneaker.

I think that the mix of delicate details, the easy velcro fastening, and sturdy rubber soles are perfect for my three-year-old. (the shoe is available with laces or in silver as well)
 

The other day, when I picked her up from daycare, we had to chat about fjärilar (Swedish for butterflies) whilst putting on her jacket and shoes. How small they are and how difficult it is to catch them. That they fly very high and that Joséphine would like to follow them on their journey one day. Isn’t always inspiring to let yourself in, in these little adventures? Putting on little butterfly wings and taking a little break from our busy schedules?!
