All through high school I felt as though I was supposed to have been born decades earlier: in the earliest 60's, yes please. I day dreamed about Woodstock and Led Zepp, Lou Red and Bobby. I had the pleasure of seeing both Neil Young and Bob Dylan in 2001 at another big and fab festival, Roskilde 2001: with my dreadlocks, flowery shirts and corduroys. I think that was as close to Woodstock as it could get for me. It was amazing. Under the stars we laid on the grass and listened to the same tunes as they did then: surrounded by the sweet smell of our youth, sex, drugs and rock'n'roll... It was the summer of peace and love and music. It was absolute bliss.
I often find myself almost overwhelmed by the talents I meet on my journey through blog and instagram land. I meet people from all kinds of backgrounds who create because of a flame that burns deep inside that cannot be stopped. It is absolutely incredible how you can get inspired to be better, by people you have yet to meet. I have been fortunate enough to meet a lot of very special people through social media (including my husband) and I have a list as long as my kids wish list for Santa, of places to go and people to see, and I hope someday my wish list comes true.
One of the peeps on that list is the amazing Kelly from Feather Drum. And she is not far away at all. In fact, she is in Sydney. She is a gorgeous lady with the most perfect sense of bohemian kids wear. If you love the Boho baby style: you must know her and her brand. If you don't, then now is a great time! ------> @featherdrum
We put on our Woodstocker pants, which is the model this mama absolutely fell in love with and proud to say we have one of each, and went to the beach on a beautiful beautiful saturday. (The third woodstocker pant is featured HERE::) After lots of stormy weather lately, and this mama being sick with the flu for what seems like forever (Yeah, still not all the way there!) it was lovely with a beach break: Lunch and ice creams followed of course. A happy day <3
Everywhere we go, when the kids are dressed in this brand, people stop and ask where their clothes are from and comment on how amazing they look. I love that so much.
Now, she just needs to make adult clothes as well, because I would LOVE to wear these super soft and amazing looking pants myself!
Feather Drum has just launched their latest season, the lost oasis collection, and it is beyond stunning. You must have a look and fall in love with this amazing australian brand.
I hope you will enjoy our little Feather Drum beach adventure
