MUNSTER KIDS SS18 // SPRING TIME SAND SURFING AND SAND DUNES EXPLORING IN AUSTRALIA :: HIPKIN KIDS FEATURE // NUNUNU



Guys, my favourite time of the year is here: SPRINGTIME! And what better way to kick off our SS/FW blogposts, than Munster kids SS18!

Munster kids is an all time favourite Australian brand of ours, friendly made and of the best quality. This brand is made to be lived in, played in, and looking fresh in:: Surf, skate and everything palmy and balmy! 
This time we had the pleasure of picking out our favourite Munster Kids Drop 1 pieces from the Australian children's fashion store, HIPKIN kids in Melbourne, who does not just stock all the best Munster kids, but they also have the biggest range of I dig denim and nununu as well, on top of a range of amazing bands, like F/D feather drum, Children of the tribe, Rylee and Cru, to mention just a few.  And a little bird also told me, that Munster kids drop 2 is full of swimwear and available super soon, so you should definitely sign up to HIPKIN's newsletter, so you get told first!! 

We took all the little guys with us to one of our absolute favourite beaches, where the big dudes 
(Carlos and Cousin Nash) could surf the southerly swell, and we could play and explore the amazing sand dunes! What an incredible place to just run around and waste time. We ran around for ages, while the big guys surfed in 16 degree water. (brrr) This was also, the moment when I realised that these kids are getting waaaay to big and waaaay to fast for me, so I went practically straight from here to the camera shop and got my self the lens of all lenses, the Canon 24-70mm 2.8fL. What an investment: I cannot wait for our next adventure!!  

I just wanted to tell you a little bit specifically about the clothing they are wearing::
The Olive Munster kids Trestle pans are so flexible. They would be perfect for little skaterdudes, or BMX riders, who are working on their tricks! The nununu raw military pants are so soft, I mean, you really have to try these if you dig the style (which I can guarantee you, Mr C does!) and Miss W's Missie Munster skirt, although this is a pretty skirt that should be treated with care, let me just tell you, though not recommending, that playing in the sand, and under all these crazy branches, did not hurt this skirt at all and it is still perfectly perfect:: however:: Be gentle with this little treasure! You will LOVE it, this I guarantee, and it will last heaps longer if you look after it. 

For details on what pieces they are wearing exactly and direct link, see the bottom of this post:

I hope you love it darlings.

BEST FRIENDS AND THE AUTUMN ADVENTURE // SUEDE DAZE + I DIG DENIM TAKES US WAY BACK 1968 // BOHO


You guys, I am so happy to finally share this little autumn daze adventure with you! 
Miss W had her best friend Miss A over last weekend, visiting for the day, and I asked the girls if they wanted to come with me to a fabulous little place, before I'd take them out to buy some art supplies. And they did! So we headed out to the more rural part of town, and explored!
They had such a fun time just playing around in the red leaves and just being silly. I wanted to create a bit of a 70's feel, as the Suede Daze's boho themed t-shirts really are straight out of the era of the gorgeous and lovely hippie days ~ I love the colours and prints on these beautiful tees, and they surely do take us back, to a time of Boney M, Woodstock and Bob Dylan, wavy dresses, long flowwy hair and big sunglasses. I told the little ladies about the hippies, how they would be dancing around in their big flowery dresses and sunnies, twirling around and letting their long hair fly in the wind, loving nature, loving flowers, probably also loving autumn leaves.... 
So we twirled and made our hair flow, and we were just having fun! 
I paired the beautiful little tees with our favourite denims, by I dig denim, Vans from our friends at camino kids, lovely knitted cardigans from Long Live The Queen and The Animals Observatory. 
And to top it off, Sons + Daughters sunglasses for the win! 

We are so lucky to live in such an amazing place on earth: Filled with sunshine and diversity in nature. We are surrounded by beaches, national parks, sand dunes, waterfalls, bush, ocean, rural farm land, and I absolutely love it here. 
And in this little part of our beautiful town, there is actual, european looking autumn colours and leaves, and this place makes me feel at home, where all the trees shed all their leaves before wintertime. Most trees in this part of the world, don't change colours, or even drop their leaves, so it's really special to find places like this, where someone planted so many amazing maple trees, creating a little memory lane for everyone who grew up with this being a natural part of the changing of the seasons. It surely does make me nostalgic. When I was in my late teens I moved next to the royal castle in Oslo /Norway, and the park leading up to the castle, and all around, was filled with maple trees. And my short legged and adorable little basset hound Alba and I, would be running through the autumn leaves being silly. It was the best. Running in Autumn leaves, will always and forever remind me of that. And her. And now, these two gorgeous little babes <3

I hope the weather is sunny and your lungs are full of fresh air, no matter if it is autumn, or summer time where you are.
