MiniMe – chunky cardigans for the little ones and mum too

chunky cardigans for the little ones and mum too

With the gorgeous weather outside and Spring-like temperatures one of my favourite looks can come out of the cupboard. It is time for chunky cardigans!

But before I will share my latest find, how lucky are we? Half term that feels like Spring? when did this ever happen? Together with the kids we already made plans – we will form a little garden crew and prepare ours for the warm season.

It is the first time we actually have an outdoor space that is big enough for a family table, a BBQ, even a little sofa as well as plants and bushes. Surprise of the year will be to discover what we actually have out there.

I will probably do some little updates over on my Instagram, if you are interested.

But back to the chunky cardigans for now…

Because Monika from Tinywool knits the most gorgeous pieces from the best merino wool. Have a look:

And like I said – today is MiniMe time. You can find children’s sizes but also sizes for grown ups. And isn’t this the best matchy matchy look anyway?!

Gorgeous sweaters, chunky cardigans and some lovely accessories. Available in many colours and always in soft and warm merino or alpaca knits. Cosy!

Pair it with your favourite denims, a long skirt or a lovely dress. The options are endless… basically.

Tinywool was created in 2017 and is based in Telsiai, Lithuania. As like many other brands it started with the birth of Monika’s daughter. Once she knitted her daughter a cardigan and received a lot of compliments, she started to expand and knit for other people as well.

My favourite would be the grey alpaca cardigans for little ones* and then for mums*. Absolutely love the sleeves and grey is such a timeless colour that goes with everything.

New happy and cheerful children’s clothing brand

We are kids new childrens clothing brand

I have decided to keep the French theme for this week, because I want to show you this new children’s wear brand. It is called We are Kids and was founded by Nathalie Ferrarini in 2017.

We are kids is for happy tribes.  Cool, cheerful and colourful children’s clothing with a vintage influence. Designed in Corsica, France and produced in Greece. And very eco-friendly! More than 80% of their fabrics are organic and weaved in European factories, respecting social and environmental standards.

The colour palette is kept quite simple yet fun!

Earthy tones combined with some stronger accents like green or peacock blue. Most pieces are gender neutral and just so comfy.

The cotton sponge fabric is very popular in France and kids usually like it a lot. It is soft and very easy to wear.

The Spring/Summer collection for this year is called ‘l’amour fou’ and is ready for the summer sun, beating hearts, laughter and serendipity.

And the best: All pieces are really very affordable. And so easy to hand down, because of the timeless styles and cool colours. Win Win!

The new collection is available here* and I can see that it is selling quite fast, so be quick to stock up on these wardrobe staples for this Spring and Summer.

20 marvellous things for your weekend!

Paul & Paula blog
Bonjour! I am off to Paris this afternoon, for a week end of Playtime fun. My reports from the shows will follow soon. Hopefully I will find some new and exciting brands and collections. And I hope to see some of the snow that covered Paris this week.

But before I will head out, I have this Friday list of things that caught my eye for you. Please enjoy!

Also, I started to write the ‘after the move’ article this week. Bullet points so far. But I really want to share some details, share that these changes affect everyone and that we also deal with emotional roller-coasters and children looking for their place in the world.

 

kids room design
VT Wonen put together a few design classics for the kids room and did a fab room styling. Love it.

Luna Luna is where princess dreams and ballerina wishes come true.

 

baby cashmere blanket
Beautiful ultra soft 100% baby cashmere blanket. Made from the finest Mongolian cashmere yarn, a lovely keepsake for years to come.

I love turquoise and it makes such a great summer accessories colour. That necklace is on my wishlist!

 

linen dress girls
Beautiful linen clothes by Mama Lama.

I love yellow. Especially on boys. And especially for Spring. Sweater love!

Cherries are the fruit of the season. And this cherry print dress from Bonpoint is not just really pretty, it has an OK price tag (for Bonpoint) too.

 

waldorf doll play set studio escargot
These play sets from Studio Escargot are too cute for words.

Magic Night Light. Rechargeable, turns itself off automatically after 45 minutes and it has a replaceable light filter: either white light or star-shaped. And you can create your own filter with drawings or images. WANT!

 

rainbow necklace kids
Sweet rainbow necklace – makes for a lovely little gift.

Brrrr, it is cold outside. Skin Food is my go to at the moment. And yours?

 

modern hallway aussie bungalow
During European winter time I like to look at houses in Australia. Like this bungalow in Melbourne.

Very simple, stylish and practical these bags. For mums and dads.

 

east hampton house
Or how about this place on the Fire Island? But it is winter there too now. Ha!

A visit from your mother. Let’s giggle over that article.

 

Teasy&Friszi
Teasy & Friszi. It is the details that do all the magic!

Atelier Zooz.

 

wooden australian animals
KK – Kangaroo & Koala set. never enough wooden toys.

Pill desk.

 

scandinavian bedroom
On Tuesdays I share inspiring family homes. But of course I see lots of other cool spaces too, so some of them I share here then. Like this cool flat.

Happy weekend friends!

Adorable swim wear for the little ones

marysia kids swimwear
So, I was just looking at some pretty bathing suits for grown ups and wondered when we can squeeze in a beach holiday any time soon.

But in case you are, or you are a really organised person and already shopping for summer (to get the best pieces!)… I know that you will love this!

Marysia Dobrzanska Reeves, a mum of two, founded the brand Marysia back in 2009. Famous for the scalloped edges, very sleek designs and superior quality – the swimwear line was an instant hit.

And since we love a fantastic bathing suit for our offspring as well, Marysia added a kids line called Bumby to her portfolio. Many models are available for mum and mini. And you can find the same quality, great details and colours.
Beautiful!

Romantic but not kitsch. Very chic, even a little nostalgic with the basketweave textures and contrasting pipings.

There are some styles for boys as well which means that all we need is the ticket to the next ocean…
