    I have an innate inability to make myself feel uncomfortable in the name of fashion. It’s something that was probably built into me from the womb. There’s not a single picture of me as a baby OR a toddler all dolled up–and I clearly recall feeling itchy at the mere suggestion that I should put on a ruffled dress or pair of tights for dinner out when I was a kid.

    My mother... the badass! She had to raise me at a time when fashion for girls was either full-on “toilet paper doll cover” (remember those?) or being often referred to as a boy-which I was (ALL the time) but I couldn’t care less; playing on the floor while wearing a yard of taffeta wasn’t even a question.

    My go-to outfit: A long (often batman) t-shirt, shorts and tevas. Yes. Tevas.

    The fashion industry has become more inclusive when it comes to kid’s clothes and I believe we owe that to the small-independent designers and studios, pushing the envelope and allowing our kids to be themselves–creating fashion that is not only comfortable but that they can identify with, no matter what their style or needs are.

    Rylee + Cru does just that: it’s fun, encouraging, ludic and practical. It’s real, fuss-free clothing that kids approve of–and their newest collection guarantees a lot more moments of play for our little ones... which translate into a whole lot more memories made for all of us.

Common to all cushions and pillows this season is that they act as more than soft places to rest your head; they will be your new best friends and fun playmates.

    The Spring Summer 2017 collection tells the tales of whimsical parties, playtime by the seaside, and magical dreams. The stories reveal the special childish creativity unfolding in the right surroundings.

The Cloud Bed by Lago is a suspended bed designed to create a sense of intimacy and make children feel sheltered. It is a nest suspended among the clouds, where little ones can go to read, play or relax in. As per usual, Lago's imagination and creativity comes into play and creates the perfect atmosphere for kids to be kids, safely. All I can think of when I see this is that 5-year-old me would have been thrilled to know what was under my bed at all times. Monsters? Nah.

Rylee and Cru merges art and imagination, offering unique and artistic clothing for the modern child. The collection consists of quality basics that are each hand garment dyed, giving them a soft vintage feel right out of the box. The shapes are comfortable and the fabrics are soft, making dressing easy for baby and mum. Kelli's SS/2016 Collection is absolutely perfect. In a world of over-dressed kids, here comes a line that makes up for it and gives our tiny ones the freedom to dive into their adventures comfortably.

    I've been pondering a question lately. Why are kids so stylish these days? I mean... I remember wearing shorts and basic tees every single day when I was a kid and my dad insisting I should only come back home if I had learned something or had gotten a scratch from playing so much - I often had pebbles in my pockets and didn't look anything like these gorgeous kiddos above. I got some of these pretties for E because she's nothing like me tomboy selft and I wish we had a more active social life so she could wear that geometric structured dress. How stunning is Line + Liv?

    Mini Rodini is one of my favorite kiddie shops. That sweet pineapple suit is making me all kinds of giggly right now. I think these photos are perfection just as every single item on the shop. I would personally love that panda print shirt for myself. Wouldn't you?
  • Photography © Unknown I've worn glasses and shades since I was 3 (!) I remember my first little pair of pink-rounded glasses made out of acetate when it wasn't even cool (very similar to "very bombe paris") Very French Gangsters is a genius concept created by Karoline Bothorel-Bolzinger and Anne Masanet - Both experts in marketing and "glasses addict", this dynamic duo created a kiddy collection that's clearly making me all kinds of happy and giggly. I'm so smitten with all these lovelies I want to channel "Very Pan Pan Paris" and head down to the farmer's market looking that slick. À tout à l'heure!

    Photography © Unknown Emma and I always seem to be wearing matching colors and I don't know if it's because she dresses like an adult or I dress like a kid. All I know is I'm freaking out about an upcoming charity event at Emma's School which involves two things that terrify me, one is speaking in Portuguese and the other one is crowds of super-moms. I mean, turban-wearing, gym-goer, not-working moms that will make the most amazing/healthy things for the bake sale and still look like they just came out a spa. I'm bringing cupcakes with lots of icing and food coloring. Lord help me! — making me happy.
    Photography © Flora and Henri The appropriate title for this would have been, "something that will make you all kinds of happy and giggly while you relive your childhood and bookmark everything, because in the pretend world you want it all"... but it was just a tad bit long.

    Flora and Henri opened its doors in 1998 introducing breathtaking boutiques, a catalogue and a website of children’s clothing, shoes and gifts. Flora and Henri combines the finest European fabrics with superior craftsmanship to create a collection for ages newborn to 10 years that is unique and sought after worldwide. While timeless and beautifully appropriate, our products are of the highest quality and are never too precious for climbing, digging, swimming and running.

    All I can say is, thank you Flora and Henri for making our day!
  • Photography © Unknown I thought I was safe to move on from my obsession with these Milking Stools but CuldeSac (one more brilliant Spanish Design Firm) and their amazing team thought I wasn't. So here I am, crushing hard on this gorgeous Ovo high chairs.

    The design was created for Mi Cuna and it's inspired by previous designs from Peter Opsvik and Maartje Steenkamp. Emma picked the pink one (surprise... surprise...) and I am in love with the black chair and the name "Ovo" which means Egg in Portuguese. I get the feeling this will become a classic.

    Now... I just need a baby for that chair.
