Moments | Here Comes the Sun

D wears: Denim anorak by Esp no1 / Bird long sleeve by Bobo Choses / Beanie by Vans / Pants by NICO.NICO / Shoes by 10IS

The afternoon sun is magical, especially after a long, windy winter. When Melbourne dishes out sun, you grab it, every little ray! And then you have icy poles and make sure you eat it while the sun warms your cheeks. Then you run around so much that you get too warm for a jacket but not too cold to just wear a long sleeve, and right about then you can tell, that Spring is waiting around the corner.

Moments | A Promise of Spring

M wears: Hoodie by Talc / Hat longsleeve by Bobo Choses / Stockings by Popupshop / Skirt by Finger in the Nose / Shoes by 10IS / Cap by Toykyo Kids.  D wears: Sweatshirt by Bobo Choses / Denims by I Dig Denim / Shoes by Puma / Beanie by Vans / Tote bag by Bobo Choses.

Friday offered warmer weather and lots of sun. M had a day off school so it was the perfect day to take both kids and grandma and grandad and spend outside. It was such a wonderful day and we couldn't believe that it was as warm as 19C, being August it is normally still Winter time so it was such a nice change. We threw rocks in the water, built rock towers, spotted big ships on the horizon, rode on scooters and had lunch in the sun. It was a nice promise of what is to come soon... Spring!

Things I Love | Zip it

Love these zip purses coming this fall from creative genius Donna Wilson. I have had a Baggu purse for a while now and I love it, but wouldn't mind having a back up one as cool as this one.

Close Up | Bobo Choses - A Day in LA

It was a happy mail day today, and our first purchases of the newly released Bobo Choses collection A Day in LA arrived. There is something so wonderfully vintage with all these garments that it is instant love. It is like they have already been worn and loved to the point where it is soft and just perfect to wear.

Both the kids and myself love the prints and there is never any arguments on who gets what because the unisex approach of the prints and colours makes it easy to pass down to the little brother, so we get a lot of wear out of our BC clothes. Here are the links to a couple of our favourites.

Moments | Playtime

M wears: Dino hoodie by kukukid / Skirt by Bonton / Leggings by Marloe Jr /Shoes by Vivo Barefoot.
D wears: Crossbones longsleeve by Munsterkids / Ramones jeans by Munsterkids / Teethy hoodie by Munsterkids.

Some weekend shenanigans and a bike trip to one of our favorite playgrounds. Kids are always full of beans and the best way to shake it out of them is to let them go wild at the park. Packed some sandwiches and coffees to go for the adults a day out was the best way to round off the weekend.

Moments | C as in Curious

D wears: Hoodie by molo / Panel denims by molo / Shoes by Puma.

There is a curious streak in this boy. Constantly trying to find adventures and hidden treasures. Fortunately we live close to a bay so there is plenty of both around. Treasures comes more in the form of rocks and sea shells or the odd tennis ball than buried treasure but who cares!?

After the storm a few weeks a go lots of things were washed up on the shore and the wooden debris quickly became a pretend boat on the sea. Imagination is a beautiful thing!
