Stripes and Polka Dots

IMG_2717_m

Hi there,

I have been obsessed with stripes for a while, and I really like polka dots. Combine the two in mother and daughter outfits on the streets of Paris and this is what you get…

Do you ever match your outfits with your children?

If you like the styling in this photo shoot go to Ilona Jongepier. Her portfolio is quite impressive.

Have a lovely day,

Dolce & Cabbana, Summer 2013

Friends,

Lately I have been drawn to Italian photo shoots. Beautiful scenery combined with old world charm. That is definitely true for this one. Dolce and Cabbana shot this summer collection in Sicily, which looks a lot like the coast of Croatia, where I spend many summers growing up. Take a look.

Beautiful, isn’t it? Makes me wish, I could go there this summer…

Have a lovely weekend, and stay warm.

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…

Australian Kid’s Fashion: Oobi

Hi there,

How was your week? Is everybody settling back down to a normal routine? I was surprised how easy it was for my kids to go back to their school schedule. I expected it to be harder after two weeks.

It’s been cold where we live and I imagine it is not much better where you are. Here are some pictures to warm you. Australia is in the middle of summer right now. Did you know that there is a vibrant array of Australian kid’s fashion? I had no idea, but then, I have no idea what goes on in Australia in general.

Take a look.

Oobi-SS-13b Oobi-SS-13aI like how Oobi (great name by the way) combines elegant with playful. The blue tutu is pretty sweet, and how about the strawberry dress with matching hat and purse?

Australian kid’s fashion has made it on my favorite list for sure.

Have a wonderful weekend, see you back here on Monday.

Back to School Outifits- Mini Boden

Hi,

today I have some ideas for children’s back to school outifits by Mini Boden USA. I like them as an inspiration because their style is so fun, cool, colorful, and very British.

Take a look:

I have a thing for toggle coats, stripes, and flower prints. Perfect!

Have you gotten your school shopping done? Do you get one outfit or a whole wardrobe? I buy for my two oldest, cause they grow like weeds (last year my 14 old outgrew his jeans three times). But for the other 4 I have hand me downs. Love those boxes from the cousins!!

More Work Spaces

Here are some more ideas how to integrate your work spaces with your decorating style. The 4 top ones are simple, affordable, yet stylish. All you need is a table. Add a couple of chairs. Add some fun pictures to give it character, and you have a great looking workspace. If you like shopping at garage sales, Craigslist, or consignment stores, you can easily do this under $100. The third picture shows what a difference a painted chair can make.

The 4 bottom ones are great solutions for small spaces.

Have a great weekend! I’ll be back on Monday.

Having Fun While You Cook

Hello Friends,

Are you ready to face a new week of cooking ,cleaning, laundry, etc.? I don’t know about you but I swing back and forth between wanting to cook a gourmet meal (not that I am able to),  and wanting to just stuff my kid’s faces and call it good.  Cooking can be so rewarding, but it also can be so tedious. Buying a blue Le Creuset pan has helped spice it up a little. Must be the blue color that makes me happy.

How about adding some colorful spoons? Wouldn’t it be so much more fun to cook with these? The right ones are weighted, so the counter doesn’t get messy. Genius!

Happy Cooking!
