Cabbages & Kings AW14 - Kids ethical knit accessories

The fall is finally slowly coming to Barcelona. Yes I know, that's why I am here and NOT in Denmark ;) Still, every September I have the need of putting on long pants and shoes, even though it's at least 30ÂșC outside... But last week the temperature started dropping and from one day to the other the leaves started changing their colors. Yesterday we had planned on going to this big outdoor tapas event downtown with some friends, but it was pouring down hard all day and so we opted for popcorn, warm knits (not at all needed, but added that extra cosyness or 'hygge', as we say) and old Disney movies at home. Best decision ever! And so I thought of Cabbages & Kings...

I fell in love with Cabbages & Kings a few seasons ago, cause they are exactly about that cosy, reassuring and warm feeling those big, chunky knits give you. Their colorful, unique and very versatile kids accessories are made of soft and luxurious alpaca wool, and most importantly it is all made in a social responsible and ethical way! What's not to love?!

Cabbages & Kings are strong supporters of fair trade and all of their knits are handmade by indigenous artisans in the Andean Valleys of Bolivia and Peru, a collaboration with a network of NGOs, churches and community groups who work to strengthen the capacities of local, participating institutions and base communities. That's my kind of brand!

I love to add a dash of color to more minimalist styles and so I have already pointed out a few (or 10..) of those legwarmers and scarfs for O. I am also seriously wandering if I can fit into the biggest of the socks? They  are so cosy!

Pass by the Cabbages & Kings web store or check out their retailer list for purchases.

Cool lifestyle photography for Wise Looks - kids hair accesories

Good morning everyone! A couple of weeks ago I was contacted by the lovely Denise Stone, founder of a new kids hair accessory label from San Francisco, California, called Wise Looks. She recently organized a killer shoot with photographer Mary Briemle (Bettina Crawford Photography) collaborating with a bunch of super cool kidswear brands and shops  like  Loola Baby and Tiny Whales, which I wrote about not so long ago, Freshly PickedHugo Loves Tiki, The Twirl ShopGoat Milk NYCShop Sweet ThreadsCarly Megan Clothing and PreFresh. The shoot took place in the amazing surroundings of the Adventure Playground in Berkley. Sit back and enjoy!

I love everything about this shoot: The styling, that spectacular scenery (it even makes me want to go nuts there, jumping around like Tarzan, right!) and, most importantly, the kids having fun!

You can find a wonderful selection of headbands, cute boho wraps and colorful clips in the Wise Looks Etsy shop and follow the brand on the Bettina Crawford Photography Instagram.

Kindred OAK AW14 - handmade organic children's clothes

Good morning everyone! I really have to get used to getting up early now that my daughter has started preschool... Yes, we have finally entered the phase of lunchboxes, name tags, running (!), parent meetings and above all, getting up while it is still dark outside! We have been lucky to have a child who actually wakes up after us and if not, then enjoying reading books in our bed while we snooze a little longer - I know, we are privileged! Well that's over, but hey... I am loving every minute of it :)

So with red, sleepy eyes, a big cup of coffee in my hand and a huge, satisfied smile on my face I present you the beautiful, new Kindred OAK autumn collection 2014. I have written about them in a previous occasion and personally I am just completely in LOVE with this brand! Comfortable, cool and unique handmade organics for hip mommas and their babes.

Indikidual autumn-winter 2014/15 - Cool kids fashion

Indikidual is one of my absolute favorite kidswear brands around! They have all check points for what in my world is perfect children's clothes: Cool, fun, funky, edgy, playful, comfortable, original, stylish, unisex and, at the same time, of a wonderful quality AND organic! I always want everything from their collections (see their SS14 collection here) for my little girl and this season is not any different! 

Their new autumn collection is all about getting crafty during the cold winter months, about cutting, sticking, painting, making funny faces with washi tape, gluing pompoms on everything and throwing confetti all over! The color palette is bright and bold, like a fresh box of wax crayons...
