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.

HUXBABY AW18 :: LITTLE DUDES AND BABES // SOFT MONOCHROME MAGIC + VANS


Hi guys! 
We have two little guests with us in todays post, as my friend has the cutest coolest little boys, and I have been dying to have them here on the blog with Miss W! So when I was preparing a blogpost to share with you some of our favourite pieces from HUXBABY's latest collection, I immediately called her and asked if I could pretty please borrow her little dudes for a while. And she said YES! And I am so happy to share with you these snaps, because 1) It is not often I get to photograph little kids anymore, mine are growing up so quickly 2) and they are so incredibly cute! I love dressing little boys up!! 
When I thought of where we could go, I figured it had to be the beach or the rockpools, and I landed on the rockpools: there is just so much to look at and do over there, it's also got the best light around sunset! It was nice and warm when we got there, but the wind picked up really quickly, and the kids kept climbing into/falling into rockpools and so we had to hurry up and get the little darlings home in the bath. Miss W even put on a little show for the little guys, jumping up and down in the big rockpools getting herself completely and utterly soaked. She still insisted on hot chips on the way home though, so I guess all that jumping kept her warm!
It really made for a wild, fun, and cold, and wet, winters afternoon! 

Huxbaby is a Melbourne based brand that is all organic and ethically made. I have known Jen for years now, and I love that she has organically grown her business from a few tees, to what it is now, a full blown collection of gorgeous shades of blush, beige, blue, black and grey. And as super soft monochrome yumminess needs shoes to go with, VANS from Camino kids, made the perfect match. I also found a way to sneak in the cutest Milk And Masuki organic cotton twill bomber jacket, also from Camino Kids. For details on who wears what, and direct link to the individual pieces, see the bottom of the post. 

I hope your week is off to a beautiful (warm) start my loves.
