Happy weekend loves!!!
Finally some time to relax and pop them feet on the table and enjoy a coffee and catch upo on blogs and a little bit of work before all the fun begins! Well, hopefully as Cal has been sick all day, so lets just hope he is all fine tomorrow and we can go on adventures again. 
This time I went on an adventure with just Lilo in our hometown. Its a pretty small surf town but has some amazing hidden treasures, like this little corner which is as urban as it gets but I love!!! 
We pulled on some jeans for this shoot, the first time this year, in fact! And it was not just any old pair,, it was a frash pair of I dig denim Madison jeans! 
I dig denim is a high quality brand that has taken the children's fashion world with storm over the last few years, with their flawless denims and super soft cotton pieces for babies, children and mamas! This brand is simply the very best there is in children's denim so all denim lovers unite:: I dig denim has finally launched their Spring/Summer collection and most of your favourite stores will have received their shipments from this beautiful and uber cool collection by now. 

The first thing I fell for from this collection was the vintage black Nico Singlet. Miss W already has a little singlet in this colour that she has pretty much worn out and grown through, so it was in need of a replacement and this flawless soft cotton racer-back did not disappoint. The fit is perfect! And then I had to try the latest version of the Madison jean. I love the Madison on little girls. It is such a great cut. A bit baggy, a bit tight. Child-friendly stretchy skinny jeans for the win, each and every time! 
I adore black on kids from time to time as well. Its so funny because if you have followed us for a while, you would know that I haven't been dressing them in too much black, because we love colours and patterns in our family, but do you know what? Secretly, I just adore it. When done right, I think black is an amazing colour! It can be made pretty, classic, cool, quirky... all depending on how you choose to style it. This is how we did for our little back-alley adventure; 
Vintage black Nico tank and black madison jeans, sweetened up with the cutest dutch side loop braid and matched with the freshest nappa black 10IS kicks, red bobo choses socks and a classic retro army blazer from Nico Nico, you have a colourful and fun black outfit!

I wanted to share some words about the amazing shoes on Miss Lilos feet as well. The brand is 10IS - a french contemporary shoe brand, designed to meet the needs of children and their growing feet. When it comes to cushioning, soft sole, movement and durability, these shoes are perfect and what quality goes, this is definitely a luxury brand! Softest upper leather and the most amazing inner sole. Your children will absolutely adore this brand! I just cannot praise them enough. Miss W put them on and has ever since wanted to be in them. So comfortable and beyond cute! Romper stomper is an australian online shoe-store, that caters to all the fun little individuals out there: If you want the best in children's shoes, from MAA, 10IS, feiyue, Tip Toey Joey, even Vans, this is definitely the store for you. 
We chose our 10is Mid lace boots in Nappa black, but you can find a whole range of styles at Romper stomper!

I hope your springtime is getting warm / that your autumn is gorgeous. 
It's been an absolutely incredible fall so far over here, and I hope it will stay this way for a little while longer. 
Singlets by day, cardigans and trackies in the evening. Best!

Tuchinda is a high end luxury children's wear brand from New York. The designer, Tina Tuchinda, began making children's clothing after the birth of her son, Hunter. "I quickly realized there weren’t enough options for what I loved.  With a background in fashion design, I decided I would make his clothes myself.  By the time Hunter was 6 months old, I was quietly creating clothing for him while he slept at night.  Soon after, I was sewing and designing day and night for Hunter and his friends" Tina predominantly use fabrics from Europe and Japan, including organic fabrics whenever possible. Her highly sophisticated details and pattern manipulation, sewing techniques, fabrics and colours are not easily found in children's wear.  "I believe children’s clothes should be multicultural wearable art.  Tuchinda also reflects all that I loved from my travels abroad.  I was most influenced by three places, Milan, Paris, and Japan. In Milan, I was intrigued by the sophisticated way they mixed multiple colors and prints in the same outfit.  In Paris, I became obsessed with the nonchalant chic attitude towards dressing.  In Tokyo, I embraced the “cool” break away from all that is normal seen in their street wear and their avant-garde designs.  I try to combine all of these elements in my collections"  

I love dressing Miss W in feminine and beautiful pieces and when I first saw this incredible little jumpsuit by Tuchinda, I just knew Miss W would love it! I fell in love with the feminine cut, the embroideries and the sweet little details on the pockets and back. Then the suit arrived and I was just taken away by the quality and the beautiful soft cotton fabric. Instant heirloom piece! I know this timeless and gorgeous jumpsuit will stay in our family for generations to come. Miss W loves to dress up just as much as she loves to climb around and get her little hands and feet dirty, so everything I ever get for her needs to be durable and high quality but also cannot ever compromise movement. The Aurora jumpsuit ticks all the boxes! 
The rock pools just a stone throw away from our place, are always a fabulous spot to take her for a little adventure. She loves playing with shells and collecting broken glass in all the colours, and searching the rock pools for fish and crabs to study (and save) and to see how many rock pools she can jump across. The whole way (skateboarding) there and back people were commenting on her outfit (and skateboarding skills) which made her feel so happy and proud (and today she is still up for skateboarding to town which is so lovely after weeks of her scooting!) 

I love that I am raising such a confident and secure little girl. There simply is nothing she cannot do and if there is she will always try to find a way! Girls are such magical little beings. So soft and gentle, so fierce and strong! I am so grateful she is mine! 

I hope you will love these little captures in the jumpsuit of the season. 
So bohemian, So French. So pretty. So beyond beautiful.

all the love /// Karianne
