What My Two Year Old is Wearing this Spring Continued

Hi there,

How is your week going? This is our last week of school. As we are trying to finish up we are also taking turns being sick. Not a fun thing in a family of 8. Any illness takes weeks to cycle through us. Still I manged to take pictures of a few more outfits of my two year old. You might recall the first 4 outfits I did a couple of weeks ago. I hope you are enjoying this as much as I do. Here we go.

Outfit #5:

outfit #6

Jumper by H&M. I bought it during my last year’s visit in Germany. Necklace from World Market.

Outfit #6:

outfit #7

Top from the Tea company. One of my favorite kid’s clothing companies. They design clothes with my girls in mind: stylish, comfy, and soft. I did a photo shoot with my friend last year with our kids wearing all Tea clothing. Shorts are from Target. Mary Jane shoes are thrifted.

And lastly outfit #7:

outfit #5

Yellow jeans from the Gap. Blouse from Old Navy. Socks from Polo. Sock Monkey from Target.

This little two year old is so much fun! Great news, outfit No. 5 and 7 have been featured in Babiekins magazine here.

Have a great day,

Sofija

Dianne von Fuerstenberg’s Collection for Gap Kids

Happy first day of May!! I hope it is as bright and sunny for you as it is in New Mexico…

The latest Dianne von Fuerstenberg collection for the Gap caught my eye, and I thought it might perfect for the month of May, when the weather is hopefully beginning to warm up…

Take a look.

Katrina Tang Photo Shoot for Start-rite

Star-rite-summer-2013-6-1024x768

I have featured Katrina Tang before. She is an Estonian children’s photographer, who does incredible work. Here she did a photo shoot for a British shoe company called Start-rite. They couldn’t have picked a better location, how can you go wrong with an old British mansion? Take a look.

I like the bold shoe colors, especially the red and yellow. But I like the production and art direction by Katrina and Smudgettika even more. How about the girl on the bridge hiding behind the balloons? Or using props like the tricycle and old suitcase in the first photo? I like photo shoots that capture children playing naturally.

I wish I had sources for the lovely outfits…

Have a great day!

Bellerose Spring/Summer 2013

Dear Friends,

How was your weekend? Did you watch the Oscar’s? Am I the only one who didn’t know that Scarlett Johansson can sing really well???? The song she did for the documentary Chasing Ice was nominated. Beautiful!

Our friend’s, the Hollands, made a really nice Oscar worthy meal consisting of seafood pasta, cheese and wine. Couldn’t have been better…

Do you remember my post on the Belgium brand Bellerose fall collection? Here is their spring collection that is just as cute and creative. Take a look…

After all the candy colored spring collections I have seen in the stores I find Bellerose’s bold colors refreshing. I like how they layer and pair dresses with T-shirts, dressy pants with Birkenstock shoes, or a nice shirt with a hoodie.

Have a lovely day,

Sofija

Oilily Summer 2013

Friends,

Have you seen the Oilily summer collection? Pretty fantastic in my opinion. They are going with vibrant floral prints this summer, also pairing pastels with neon and deep reds.  Take a look.

As always I appreciate the art they put into their shoots. Love the props they used like the gigantic pear. I wouldn’t mind putting the toddler dress on my 2 year old. Or the yellow skirt with printed red flowers on my 4 year old.

Have a fun filled, colorful day! How can you not after looking at these pictures…

Little Red Riding Hood

Friends,

how was your weekend? Ours was packed with a Christmas play and a photo shoot. I have been planning the photo shoot  for a while and I can’t wait to share some picture with you today and the next two weeks. Thanks to Emily from Lonely Mountain Photography they turned out like I hoped to.

Here are some pictures of my 6 year old Ella. Ever since I found the red cape I wanted to do a Little Red Riding Hood shoot with her. Take a look.

Little Red Riding Hood

Misha Lulu continued

Friends,

I had to share these pictures with you, also by Misha Lulu. They speak to me on so many levels. Growing up in Germany fairy tales were a big part of my life. The images beautifully blend the sense of wonder, playfulness, and discovery. Enjoy!

I think I told you that I bought a red cape for my 6 year old? It will be perfect for creating the Little Red Riding Hood look. My favorite is the Little Red Riding Hood t-shirt in the first and second picture.

Have a lovely day,

Sofija
