Hi friends! How has your August been this far?
Let me tell you, over here in the land downunder, it has been amazing! Except for one freezing cold day [yesterday] it has been lovely springtime [european summer] weather for over a week and we have been in shorts and skirts lazying around on the beaches [not entirely true. We scavenger hunt for shells and seaglass and we pretty much do not sit still for even a moment] I am just so ready for the long summer days. Beach dinners and ice creams! And all the amazing summer clothes! 
One of the Brands I have loved getting to know over the years, is Bondi label, Printebebe.
Having worked as Fashion Editor on both Madison and Vogue Australia for the last 15 years, the birth of her daughter, put a new spin on things for Fiona, the mother behind this beautiful brand. Printebebe is a combination of Fiona's love of fashion, mixed prints and mostly her daughter. Printebebe is a simple girls clothing range from 3 months - 5 years. Wear one stand out printed piece, or print on print. With Fiona's stylist background she can't help but mention, all these work best with tan strappy sandals [~Which is of course a statement I fully agree with. I love tan leather sandals and it was the plan when I dressed Miss W this morning, I picked out both her beautiful Eli Papanatas sandals and her comfy Tip toey joey sandals, but she decided her salties needed a testrun and as with any threenager, you cannot argue her shoe of choice, so black salties it was] 

This printebebe skirt is so beautiful and full. I love the quality and the twirl is amazing! Miss W loved the pockets for treasures! And the baby boho blouse is so stunning! It will be on repeat all summer long! So incredibly good, I so wish there was one this good in my size!! Perfect to be worn to give the skin a little break from the sunshine on top of swimmers, or for a birthday party or those really balmy summer night. 

And do you know what? summer will be here so soon! 
I simply cannot wait!!

We are here again, the almost-end of a season. Back to school is just around the corner and just a few more weeks before the return of routine and the hum drum the daily grind.

Beautiful weather has meant that we can enjoy the last bit of summer comfortably and in style.

The most Lovely garments arrived on our doorstep a few days ago and we could't wait to give this beyond cozy outfit from Tao and Friends a try. Mr.P paired it his fav topper and his trusty Akid slides.

Tao and Friends (Cloths for Cool Kids)  is a brand who not only wants to dress your babes in sustainable clothing with fun prints, they also give back to a charity by donating 1 euro for each item sold. As their business grows so will their contributions. Pretty rad as this is their debut collection. This is a brand that is doing more to make a difference for people in need. LOVE!!!

Super cute organic cotton + Fun prints (which makes the kiddos smile) is a total win!

Much Love,

Every single seasons there are a few labels I just cannot wait to see what have in store, and SCOTCH AND SODA for kids, Scotch R'belle and Scotch Shrunk is quickly becoming massive favourites over here. As a lot of brands play it safe in the colours, style and pattern department, S&S just never ever do! They mix and match fabrics and prints and have a fun and quirky style for the sweet natured, surf loving, gypsy spirited adventurers. As Scotch and Soda goes, their children's wear offer the same amazing quality as their adult lines: never ever taking shortcuts on quality: This palm tree sweater Mr C is wearing is made from the coziest cotton/linen mix. It is so soft and so strong at the same time, and not to mention, how amazing linen feels on your skin. I paired it with the coolest denim shorts around, the Mercer shorts! Miss W's jumpsuit is in a woven cotton, and is soft and strong as well. So cute with the stripes and so cool with the neon tassles. I paired the jumpsuit with the amazing and super fluffy Mini Rodini pile baseball jacket, made from 100% recycled polyester and organic cotton. Ah Mini Rodini... I don't know how you do what you do, but I love it! Gold coloured details makes this bomber so much more special, and did I mention how soft it is? You cannot go wrong with this, I tell you. Not even on a lovely winters day in 20 degrees Celsius. So cozy!

For this little adventure we headed north to a little place full of caves and white sandy beaches and sand dunes! The kids climbed, jumped, splashed, rolled and played for ages. They even met a little pirate friend, who's mom I have known through Instagram for a long time now. It was so fun to randomly bump into each other like that, nowhere near where any of us live! Awesomeness!
It truly felt a lot like summer, the kids were really just missing their swimmers! And thankfully, the weather around these parts has been wonderful ever since. Beachdays and sandy salty days, we are SO ready!!!
