Vintage inspired leather shoes for the little ones

vintage leather shoes kids

Hello from the first day of half term. After a weekend full of rain and wind I am so ready to get out and about and full my lungs with fresh air. I always feel rather uninspired when spending to much time inside. Do you have the same?

On the plus side our kitchen was filled with the smell of baked goods yesterday. I made a cake and the kids produced some cookies. And I produced a raw cake coming up with a recipe myself after I checked what we had in stock. Tasty!

And all together we are starting into a fun week of holidays with the leftovers and some sun that did make an appearance this morning.

Over the weekend I also took some time browsing around my favourite sites for inspiration and finds. And stumbled upon these gorgeous vintage leather shoes for children. A very lovely Etsy shop* selling the cutest shoes in heirloom designs. From Mary Jane’s, to Oxford’s, or t bar styles. In timeless tan, soft pink, or happy mustard. These shoes will change every outfit.

Come and see more of these lovely vintage leather shoes:

Aren’t they delightful?

My favourite are the Mary Jane’s with the leaf detailing* (absolutely love the details!!) and the one’s in red and cream*.

All shoes are made from very soft leather and have that WOW effect that will put a smile on your little one’s face every time they put them on. And your’s probably too…

Happy Monday everyone!

 

More shoes? How about some functional yet very cool school shoes or Coolis?

A Letter from Summer

A Letter from Summer

A Letter from Summer – probably the best name for a collection I have heard in a long time. And even so we have storm Ciara blazzing through the streets, there are little signs of Spring already.

The days are getting longer, daffodils are blooming, and we could enjoy some park time after school without their little hands freeze on the scooter handles.

So yes, we are curious to see what summer wrote us. Transmitted through a collection that is fun, light, airy, and playful. Cooiii is a young Chinese kid’s wear brand with adorable and imaginative designs. Founded by two good friends in Shanghai in 2017, and inspired by the motto: “Kids run the world”. To no surprise, you can find it reflected in their designs.

Discover a colourful children’s line that uses innovative new methods, focus on the finer details, and embraces the beauty of an idyllic childhood. Discover A Letter from Summer:

A Letter from Summer

The morning light of tropical islands and the wet coconut forest in the rain are our initial fantasy of adventure. And the stripe element, the silhouette of the sea soul shirt, accompany us to explore another hidden world. Ginger hunting shorts, loose and comfortable strap skirts give us ample space to move. We just want to run on the beach, release emotions, ponder light and shadow, and experience the ease of the sea breeze on the cheeks. Opening the summer letter from the sea…

And there are a lot of really wearable and adorable pieces. All with a very reasonable price tag by the way. Choosing a favourite is very difficult but for girls I love this dress*. I just love the colour combination as well as the simplicity.

For boys I am choosing these shorts*. First of all, I love the yellow colour because boys love to wear something else than navy and brown too. Further – it has all these cool as well as practical details.

The star edit!

The star edit!
 

After we started off the week in rather magical and mystic ways, I will keep the feeling and share some of my current favourites that shine with stars.

Stars are one of those designs that are always current and everyone loves. They are kinda gender neutral too and reflect a lot of themes like space, ballerina, or magic.

And look at yourself and your friends – do you know somebody who likes stars? I bet you do. Do you know somebody who does not? Now you probably have to really think and not come up with a name…

Exactly… stars are fun, cool, and timeless.

And they do pop up in all kind of ways in our wardrobes and homes. Here are the ones that I would shop right now:

 

1. A star lantern* macrame style. In lots of subtle and beautiful colours. Definitely not only for the kids room but I am sure your kids would love one…

2. Woah. Such a cool print. And one very warm jacket – perfect for your upcoming winter holidays!

3. We all know – it is in the details. And these star pins will change your look immediately.

4. I knooooow. They are awesome. They are sneaker fever*! And in case you do not like pink, or the glitz, they are many other cool styles available.

5. This lamp is called the twirly lamp and the best part is – it comes with a set of fun magnets that you arrange just as you wish…

6. The perfect outfit to dance to your dreams, to twirl to your future, and to hang up in your room when not worn.

7. A star teething necklace that is as cute as cupcake!

Half Time! More stars coming:

8. Those sneakers can definitely show off these stardust leggings. Match made in heaven!

9. Delightful onesie.

10. Tulle, and more tulle. And lots of gorgeous stars – the perfect party dress*.

11. Cute, simple, and something for every day – this sweet star headband*.

12. Boy, girl… anyone will love this cool jumper* that just screams COMFY!

13. Cool kids need cool socks* as well.

14. The simplest way to add some magic and to turn a room into a place out of a dream – a stunning star garland*! By the way, here are some truly magical kids rooms!

Dress up attire to enter a magic world!

magic dress up clothes

Hey! How was your weekend? We had a pretty quiet one over here and it was lovely. Slow, cosy, and fun. I also took some time to browse around the net and see if I discover something I like and want to share with you.

And I did! I found this very cute Etsy shop* selling the most incredible dress up clothes for children. Being a real magician, a fairy, or a mermaid is no dream anymore.

Natasha is based in Russia and her magic is coming from…
… a little girl with blond hair who believed in magic. Magic is not only at Christmas, magic is a dew on the morning grass. Is a coin under the pillow for your fallen tooth. Magic is when Dad climbs a tall tree and brings you a palm full of ripe cherries. Magic is here and now – just believe in it. Be joyful and surprised, dream and know that the world can be magic … if you want…

Let’s dive into this fairy tale of magic dress up clothes:

All products are exclusive handmade work. Made with a lot of love, passion, and tons of sequins.

I love how whimsical everything looks and how every piece puts a big smile on a child’s face. Truly magical! My favourite must be this stunning circus tux* and that gorgeous mobile* that will put even the smallest people into a magic world.

More magic? How about these truly magical kids rooms?
