POPUPSHOP MEETS OCRA MEETS MOI // SS15 AT APPLE-BABY



...so there they are, after the storm, playing with their sweet friend Sugar and skating without a worry in the world...

I hope you have all been well. It has been so long.
We have been without internet for 3 days and its still a bit of an on-and-off kinda thing but luckily we didn't loose our power at all during the recent storms that swept across NSW! Many of our friends has been without electricity for 4-5 days. 
As soon as the storm settled down, we were out there, where we belong, on the esplanade. Skating and playing and climbing and running. Life is pretty good over here, even when it storms at its worst. We are incredibly lucky. Internet and electricity is one thing: at least most of us still have our homes intact and can go back to normal again. 

It was so nice to follow the fam-bam around with my own camera this weekend: and the weather was finally perfect for a bit of an autumn shoot. Mr C goes so fast he makes fire, he says, and Miss W is not afraid of falling because she has wings. Ah bless. Ocra you truly make the most magnificent shoes. So cool, durable, comfortable, soft and the leather smell is so so good! 
Mr C was born in the year of the tiger, and therefor this hoodie from popupshop was not a tough choice! He actually jumped with joy when he saw this beauty. My son knows to appreciate amazing clothes! Not only is he the most grateful child, but every single thing he wears he ask me who made it for him and he appreciate the thought behind. He truly is one of a kind. Miss W loves the beautiful earth and she looks so so sweet in her popupshop earth dress and Moi birdie hoodie. (Note that MOI runs very small!)
Mr C's amazing cobalt blue wool scarf, is knitted on a loom by a homeless (by choice) Australian gentleman who also happen to sell his amazing scarves on ToothsLoom Truly, these little treasures are worth every penny. 

Moi, Popupshop and Ocra available from www.apple-baby.com and right now you get 25% off all OCRA kicks!  
Stay safe in the crazy weather around the globe.

A good Mail Day :: Featuring Gardner+the Gang /Mini Rodini // SS15




My little dude and I have been away from the blog for a spell but am so happy to be in the swing of things once more.

We are so very lucky to be able to try out so many wonderful labels and to work with shops that are committed to offering the best in children's apparel.

Mr.P and I love when we come home and find a parcel filled with amazing goodies!
This one in particular from the lovely Shop Dino Deluxe as it contained some of my favorite brands ; Gardner & the Gang, Mini Rodini and I dig denim!

This outfit was absolute perfection, and makes these days where the weather is having some trouble deciding which season it's heading towards easier to cope with.... and stylish to boot! On this particular morning staying in was not an option we made our way out with the mini kick scooter and his area ware cube bot dude! Mr. P was racing around the neighborhood in comfort which as I always say is just as important as style.
Katrin was very lovely to work with and shared a bit about her shop ;

Dino Deluxe is based in Paris France (but they also ship worldwide).
Katrin, started the shop 6 years ago when she had her first son. She noticed a void in the Parisian market for Scandinavian fashion Labels for babies and kids, and proposed to introduce some of the Scandi brands she loved for their quality and design. You can find many popular brands in her shop such as: Mini Rodini, Popup-Shop, Play Sam, Gardner& the Gang, Soft Gallery, and some beautiful but not yet as well know brands such as, Mainio, Aarrekid or Iglo & Indi.

The Lovely Katrin has offered our readers %20 off all items in her shop! Yes even the ones already reduced!  USE CODE :: Freeandwildchild
Head over and take a look.. I bet you will find something special for your wee ones!

Be well dear ones.... until next time :)
Peace from upstate NY~

LOUD APPAREL SS15 /// BUGS AND LITTLE GIRLS




Oh it has been so quiet from this end as of late. Always something to do and some pleace to go and someone to meet for a playdate. Life in this house is all about the kids: They come first. Always. I have been wanting to share this piece for what seems like forever, but finally I had the time to sit down and write to you about one of our true favourite labels:: 
When it comes to children's labels, not many are as bold and brave as LOUD apparel: The contrasty, often monochrome colour schemes, bold prints and fun little figures is enough to fit its name, but the real treat, is ALWAYS in the designs and cuts. They never take any shortcuts on the design front. The detailing is incredible and the passion behind the designs shines through when you feel the finished results. The shirt and skirt Miss W is wearing in this little mini shoot is impeccable. The skirt takes the price: The ruffles layer so perfectly and the thick cotton is so so perfect for this little piece. This season you get caps, socks, towels, shorts, tees and drop crotch pants to mention a few: all high quality statement pieces. 
Loud apparel is haute couture for children. And to take the amazingness of this brand even further, the brand has turned 100% organic as well. This ethical and organic brand from London is quickly becoming one of the biggest names in the world of children's fashion and as they begin to appear in shops and stores all over the world, I tell you, the future is bright so watch this space closely.

Miss W is not a very girly girl, but she LOVED wearing these pieces and she had so much fun playing with her brothers collection of bugs. Yes. Real bugs. Dead bugs, but none the less, real.
Little girls rock. And this one, ooooh she truly truly does.

I hope you enjoy and that you are having a wonderful start to your week. 

Peace out. /// Karianne

MAÁ SHOES SS15 // PINEAPPLES NEON AND GOLD



If you have followed my blog for a while, you know that I really love MAÁ shoes. I cannot brag enough about them to be honest: you can see previous posts HERE :: Which includes some shoots we have done as well. MAÁ makes super fun and cute high quality shoes: hand made in their family factory in Alicante/Spain, just like the sister company Manuela de Juan. 
MAÁ shoes are made in the softest most durable leather and are so detailed and incredible that they can take your breath away! There was never made cuter sneakers! We adore the ones we are so lucky to have and we wear them so much. They work well for play, run, climbing, skateboarding and jumping. They also make the most fabulous boots and their range is up to size 41, so you can be twinning with your minis. Yay! If you ever look for unique and high quality kicks for your kids (or yourself)  I say look no further: Ethically handmade in Spain with love and care, Ill say NOTHING beats a pair of MAÁ Shoes.

I hope you enjoy /// Karianne
