Just a normal Saturday with four children in the house

a normal Saturday with four children in the house
How was your week end? It looks like we are having a ‘soft’ autumn and can enjoy the lovely temperatures a little longer. On the other hand I was reading another article about climate change this morning and those mild temperatures do not feel so tempting anymore. Let’s not get all ‘big topic’ here (there are other blogs for that out there) but it is definitely something to keep in mind

And to be honest, we are more busy with holes in the wall and sorting out wardrobes and cupboards than walks in the park. So when I was thinking about taking pictures of the kids in their new Autumn wardrobe, I was not tempted at all to do some ‘styled stuff’. I felt more like – lets just show them how they are. And how we are, here… with four kids in the house.

Between the ages of three and eleven. Playing, running, jumping, loving, shouting and so on… because there is always at least one little person up to something in our house.

I won’t show you my children crying or being mad at each other (and yes, that happens too here!) because I do not feel it would be right, but I guess you can visualize the thin line we have between the sibling bond and annoyance.

Me, me. That is not fair! Why can he have this? Can we watch TV? (after they were allowed to play on the ipad for a bit) Can I have candy? (for breakfast) Where is my yellow-special-horse-rainbow-light-sparkly pen? What do we have for diner? (with diner on the table)

Humour is a big help if you want some advice from me. Really, sometimes I just laugh… and think: What else can I do? Crying? Laughing is much better and usually somebody joins in…

Oh and, apparently the thing of boredom is still a thing, and seen to be a good and to help children to grow their creativity. Because for one reason or another, even with four children in the house, they do manage to be bored.

Or they found something they want to do. By themselves and another little person thinks he can just crash the party. ‘Mamaaaa… can you take xy?’

Sometimes I just pause and watch them too. Thinking about their characters and how they are so different. And also the same. It is funny, especially when you go all poetic and see that they all grew in my belly.

And you know, in the end. All the chaos and craziness is exhausting and leaves very little room for my own boredom, it is also rewarding and we would not like it any other way.

In collaboration with Soft Gallery. A brand we all love and my crew really appreciates. I had them select their outfits by themselves because I wanted them to have pieces THEY love (not me). Each little person has his own personality and that should reflect in their clothing choice too.

Stunning embroidered knitwear for the little ones

Stunning embroidered knitwear for the little ones
My heart jumped a beat when I discovered this treasure. First it is so beautiful and special (something you recognize immediately) and it ticks my current obsessions for everything Autumn fashion big time.

The mother-daughter duo, Marina and Micaella, founded Wild Wawa in February 2015. At that time Micaella was living in Brazil and had her first daughter. And during one of Marinas visits as a new grandma they decided to follow their dream and create a collection of children’s clothing. And I am so glad they did.

Stunning embroidered knitwear for the little ones

The idea is to combine high quality fabrics sourced from their home country Peru with handcraft touches. Showing the skillful and timeless beauty of artisan craft.

The result are uniquely beautiful garments worthy of your most dearly loved, made to accompany them during their childhood days and when celebrating important milestones.

Everything is handmade in Lima, Peru by a small team of amazingly talented women. Most of them are mothers to young children themselves and Wild Wawa provides them with the opportunity to work from home, so they can make caring for their families their number one priority.

‘Our hope is that our garments are seen as heirlooms that can be passed on for generations in your families and that they are truly loved since so much love goes into making them.’

Of course I am particularly in love with all the knitted pieces and (!) the embroidery. These two together are the perfect match!

 

Paul & Paula: wild wawa embroidered knitwear for kids

The autumnal colour palette and those adorable animal dresses are really one of a kind! Paired with some chubby baby legs and precious children, these two really had me the moment I found their website.

And I am pretty sure that I am not the only one that is smitten, am I right?

By the way… it is a funny day outside here today. Windy with lots of rain and some 5 minute breaks of sunshine… looking at these sunny images really warms me up!

Have a nice day!

Relaxed autumn styles for children

Paul & Paula: autumn styles for children
Hello! How are you? Sorry, I went a little MIA last week but I was away, the move needs attention (especially the paper work) and of course there are a couple of kids in our house too. September includes two birthday’s plus parties that need to be organised and prepared. You know the drill. So the blog had to take a back seat and that is totally fine once in a while as well.

Generally I am thinking a lot the blog and the content more and more. I asked you on Insta and spoke to a few people. Of course it will stay a fashion and design blog. And I want to integrate a few more personal articles (again) here too… but I wonder how much I want to share look books ‘only’. Maybe the very amazing ones (like today) here and there. But not as a main content provider…

What do you think about a mix of fashion, interior, personal and design? Sounds quite nice right? Lifestyle it is I guess… and maybe I will skip a day here and there. Focusing on prime stuff instead of ‘quantity’… slow blogging. Is that a thing? Yet? A little more soul I feel…

Not sure how I can swing back to today’s post from here but I want to show you this really cool new collection from Fish and Kids. (read more about them in my first feature of the label)

I love the relaxed style and feel of Fish and Kids. There are a lot of amazing knitted garments in this collection too and just imagine this cool skirt with a chunky sweater. Perfection!

What do you think? A little dreamy, paired with some cool accessories (and I will always love sneakers with a romantic dress or skirt!) and the kids’ personal style.

By the way, amazing patchwork coat!

MOUN TEN.
Hej! We are back in Sweden (only one day for me, because I am off to Berlin tomorrow for a short trip) and my head is spinning. Quick London update: We found a house! For more I invite you to take a look at my Insta. I will try to write an update here as well but we have only about 4 weeks left and a very long list of things to do. I will try!

But for today, I am inviting you to discover this young and quirky brand from japan called MOUN TEN.

Functional and sophisticated children’s clothing that is comfortable for children and just uber cool. A lot of pieces are unisex and  blend perfectly into everyday lives.

No hill is too steep, no lake is too deep, no mountain is too steep with these clothes!

And when you have a closer look you will realize that it is all about the fabrics and details. A very sophisticated, sporty look in beautiful colour palettes and simple shapes. Simplicity is more in Japan!

And what do you think? It is really cool isn’t? I love how the Asian brands manage to combine the casual with the sophisticated. (The way the French are great for the chic and comfortable style!) It is so nonchalant and easy… love it!

Have a nice week everyone!

Go black for your kids!

nununu
One brand that never seizes to amaze is nununu. Staying true to their roots of black alternative fashion for children, every season they add a little surprise.

For this Autumn/ Winter Tali and Iris were inspired by stripes. Stripes? Yes, a classic and a design that always works… I mean who does not have stripes in their wardrobe. But of course, nununu is adding their own signature and we are talking about black bold stripes on hoodies or asymmetrical fun leggings. Eye catchers!

And the colour of the season is called sand storm. I love the name, very strong and so energetic.

Again, the brand continued their collaboration with artist Shay Id Alony. An international sculptor, installation and performance artist based in Tel Aviv, Israel. He designed the skull print of the season, called the skull robot print.

Additionally, I love that nununu is extending their accessories range step by step. For Back to School we saw some very cool lunch boxes, water bottles and back packs. But you can also find fun underwear, umbrellas or towels.
