PAPER WINGS SS16 // ORGANIC KIDS FASHION FOR THE WIN :: THE MAGIC HOUR CHASERS AND THE RAINBOW FAIRIES //


Hi loves!
It is so lovely that summer has finally arrived over here in oz, and today we had our first day of over 40 degrees Celsius this season! It was excruciatingly hot to be honest, and I as try to enjoy the heat, I fail miserably on days over 33 degrees! It is just not normal to function as a human being in heat like this.. especially not to someone who has experienced more -33 degree days that +33 degree days! Ok Ok, I know, I shouldn't complain, there is worse scenarios than ours: We practically live on the beach and can go for a swim at any given time all year around, and we get to enjoy the tropical creature world: We have a huge green tree frog living around our fishpond on our deck, we fall asleep to the calming sound of cicadas and froggy song and we have parrots and cockatoos in all our trees all summer long. We can carry our surfboards to the beach and we can skate for 2 minutes to get to the best coffee and ice cream places we know. Yes, I truly can't complain, but I do, not so secretly,  wish for an air conditioner in our home...

If you have been reading my blog this summer, you know I have featured swimwear a lot, I mean, it is practically what my kids wear for 6 months, so it only makes sense. I have also gotten to test and trial so many different cuts and fabrics! The most vibrantly coloured ones though, has been the ones from Paper Wings SS16! Miss W got the cross over fairies swimsuit, and she has worn this so much this summer and still it looks completely flawless! No annoying sand grains stuck in it, no lint or pulled threads. It is so well made and fitted! I love how this little yellow frilled jersey skirt compliments the swimsuit so nicely! This is a skirt from the baby collection but the sizing is up to a large sz 4 so Miss W can still get away with that. If you do like this fit but would like it in a larger size, you could check the bigger girl section ((here)) as there are some amazing frilled skirts for the bigger girls as well.  Miss W even packed her fairies backpack herself and brought it to the beach full of fun things to play with.  LU was wearing the Paper Wings hammer head boardies and the classic striped tee in blue.  Everywhere we go when he is wearing these boardies, people stop us and ask where they are from. The colour is so bright and beautiful and next to tanned skin, it is absolute perfection! The sizing of Paper wings is generous just so you know you don't need to size up in this brand.

I hope you are keeping cool and hydrated in this heat! We have benched up in front of our most powerful fan, while we are waiting for the weather to cool down a little so we can head to the beach again :)

Forever beach bums!

MUNSTER KIDS :: ETHICALLY MADE // AUSTRALIAN KIDS FASHION FOR LITTLE GROMMETS WORLD WIDE // SS16 HIGH SUMMER


Yo friends! 
I hope your summer holiday has been amazing [if you are in the southern hemisphere that is] and that you are getting ready for the whole back to school thing! This year Mr C starts school [in 13 days to be exact] and I am so not ready for this even though he was practically born ready! My social little grommet! I will miss my little man when he goes to school, but we are getting a puppy so I guess that might take the edge off for me and Miss W! But, before school starts, we still have almost 2 weeks to enjoy and we will be making the most of all our hours together at the beach! Our local beaches are so good and caters to so many different things to do. This beach is our favourite at the moment. We skate/ ride our bikes down there, and hide in the shade of this one massive palm tree. The kids build treehouses [ LU is a climbing-treehouse-wiz!] collect little creatures [We call Mr C the Steve Irwin of bugs] and run around in the surf and sand! Life is good when you can take a dive into the big blue!

This day we left a little too late in the morning, when the sun is too high on the sky and the rays are too strong, so Miss W wore these white super soft Pineapple jersey pants by Munster Kids and the little janie tank in soft black and she stayed cool and comfortable and did not get overly exposed to the sun on the way to the beach! The beauty of white pants! She also insisted on wearing her new neon yellow Birkenstock rio's. She loves these fun little sandals, and that she can run into the ocean while wearing them! They are so comfy and weighs absolutely nothing, so she pretty much lives in them this summer! Mr C and LU, our little monkeys dudes, take every opportunity to climb and explore and they built the coolest little treehouse, high up in a tree. Kids are so cool!
Mr C wore his Munster kids Limits stripe tee which has such a perfect stripe and colour if you love the whole venice beach 1970's vibe [which we do!] and his favourite boardies of the season, the Rhombie by Munster Kids. LU wore his new favourite tee, the Munster kids radical tee and his new shorts named after the Munster Kids founders littlest dude, Kash. This season Munster kids also knocked the accessories out of the ballpark, so to say, with the freshest little carry on denim tote bag, that I have been using myself, to and from the beach. I just super love good accessories! 

If you need us for the next 2 weeks [almost] we will be at the beach come rain or shine, working on our surfing, swimming, climbing, jumping, building and running. I hope you will do the same :)
And if you are stuck in the winter and it's cold and snowy or rainy, you should totally take a moment to dream away, whilst checking out Munster kids summer sale section and grab some bargains for the summer you have creeping closer and closer by the minute! World wide shipping available of course :) 

Happy daze!
Peace and Love from all of us :)
