LiandLo

Swedish brand LiandLo have combined colourful with organic and created a cheerful line of childrens clothing. Right now you can get Happy Clouds and the Monkey suit over at Baby Goes Retro, a sure hit with any boy or girl!

Today's

I have been asked if I could do a few today's style posts, and I have to admit I normally have very little time to plan what my kids are wearing.. things fly out of the wardrobe in the morning and we are just happy if they are not wearing it back to front ;). Then of course there's my daughter who has FULL control of her own wardrobe now. I have learn to stay out of her style choices now. But here is a photo of my boy from today, looking rather stylish in his warmer threads (yes winter has come to Melbourne... or so it feels like).

To Be or not To Be

Oh I couldn't resist... How cool is this little wooden skull from Acne Jr. ?? Made of pine wood and features a hidden little secret compartment this little box is any little boy's (or girl or man or woman for that matter!) perfect gem!

Reading...

Not only does this cover look absolute great but the book is equally good too.

review from Readings.com.au
Little Owl has fallen out of his nest and can't find his mummy! Luckily kind Squirrel takes on the cause of finding Mummy Owl, and Little Owl does his best to desribe what she looks like.

After rejecting some unlikely candidates (a huge bear, a googly-eyed frog, a startled rabbit) Little Owl is eventually re-united with his relieved mum.

This is a lovely, repetitive story that kids and parents will relate to strongly. Chris Haughton's fantastic illustrations are bold and retro, in a palette that reminds me of the most glamorous sixties wallpaper! I particularly like the happy afternoon tea ending, and Squirrel's very true words `Biscuits are our favourite thing' (they are! how did he know?) Read this one aloud - and then prepare to read it over and over again.

A stroll in Copenhagen.

I was instantly transported back to my old stomping grounds in Copenhagen when I read this piece on a City Break in Copenhagen, Denmark. Lots of memories coming back and I can still smell the crisp, cold air when I see the photos... well worth the read. From Little Scandinavian

Happy Colours!

Can't help but getting HAPPY when I see these colourful clothes from Japan (Tsumori Chisato). This was from an exhibition at the Normann Copenhagen Flagship during the FashionWeek this year. It is good to see that you don't have to leave colours behind just because you grow up!

Women

I am loving these paperwork women, from Australian (Melbourne) artist Miso (Stanislava Pinchuk). Each artwork is carefully cut out in paper and then pasted on random house walls. I am crazy about how she uses the tones of the wall as her canvas and let them decided the colours of the clothes of the women. Brilliant!!







Creative Spaces!

Oh to be a kid again and be let loose in one of these creative spaces for kids! I am so happy to see more money being spent on important things like spaces,playgrounds for children. I mean how much money do we spend on adult playgrounds (stadiums etc)? Good thing is when you have kids you don't have to have a reason to enjoy these spaces for yourself! Imagination here we come!

Crème de la Crème à la Edgar

If you are in Copenhagen, Denmark you simply can't miss paying the gorgeous children's shop called Crème de la Crème à la Edgar a visit.

Stunning choices and a lovely cosy atmosphere... Definitely one of my favorite and must visit shops while I was living there! photos:LMNOP





















Mobiles

I have a new found love for mobiles, and lucky for me I don't have to hang them in the kids rooms anymore, because there are so many great looking mobiles that simply goes well anywhere in the house. Multi talented artist Beci Orpin has made these colourful mobiles recently and they are all available in her webshop.

If you are in Australia you can also join her in her mobile making workshop together with the creators of Harvest Textiles on the 25th and 26th of June. More info and bookings here.

Mini Rodini Jeans

While we are on the subject of denim for kids, I have to mention the Mini Rodini jeans collection for kids as well. We bought a pair of Santiago Vintage a while ago and my daughter loves wearing them (mind you, this comes from a girl who normally loves wearing skirts and dresses). They sit really well and they are soft enough to be really comfortable both on the playground and at home. You can find your denim threads from MR over at Oii barnkläder and of course at their own webshop. If you are looking for those really nice pair of denims that will last a while this is a sure bet!
