Playtime Paris Favorites #1

It's so hard to make a selection from all the great brands I saw this weekend. That being said there is always somebody who stands out and catches your eye, here are a few favorites (1 out of 3). Pierrot la Lune (two first pics) has made a lovely spring/summer collection filled with soft summer knits, comfortable dresses for girls and shirts for boys. Adeline Affre (pic. 3–4) is kind of a newcomer, she makes really cute and playful jewellery for kids and also showed a new home collection this time. Blankets, pillows and bags all in colorful patterns, I left wanting more (...like everything). Danish shoe brand Angulus was like a candy store... shiny pastels mixed with classic navy and black leather. The way to go... Norwegian brand Jumina (last two pics) is always like a fairytale, fun and whimsical. Bows, dots and kites is what to expect from summer 2015. We can't wait!.

Freedom...

FIVE days until FOUR weeks of freedom (well, kind of...). I leave for Paris on Friday and the rest of my gang to Sweden. A few days all alone in the city of love... Will make the most of it for sure!.
This weekend has been filled with playdates, long lunches, messy hair and a bit of teething...

In case you haven't noticed, the blog has been a bit quiet this spring. There is always room for one more project or just a tiny little something. Sooo, a friend and myself have something exciting coming up this fall so wait and see... Just bare with me!.

Oh, and I will be at Playtime Paris on Saturday (and maybe Sunday) so if you see me, please come and say Hi!.

Notes on clothes: I'm wearing a new sweatshirt from French brand émoi émoi. Lykke wears tee from Atsuyo et Akiko (seriously the best tees, I don't know how many time this one has been washed!) and leggings from Mini Rodini. Levi wears tee from Tiny Cottons.

Pssst...Mini Rodini AW14


A little bit more fall/winter for you, just in case you miss it... These pictures makes me smile though, Mini Rodini always have so much humor in their designs, I love that!. The AW14 collection "Quel Carrousel!" is inspired by the life and people behind the circus. With a large number of sustainable and pieces made from GOTS and Fairtrade certified cotton, it's well worthy a place in the spotlight this fall.

The collection will be in store July/August in Mini Rodini’s stores, retailers world-wide and in the online shop.

MiniØya 2014

Yup, a few weeks late on this one (to the point I almost forgot I was suppose to post it)... Anyway, MiniØya is a tradition for us, Lykke LOVES it and we always team up with good friends. A day filled with sun, music, ice cream, Pippi Långstrump and cotton candy... Pretty damn perfect if you ask me!.

Oeuf introduces VIVA BROOKLYN

I know, the last thing you are thinking about is wool right now... I just had to share the upcoming collection from NYC based Oeuf. They got their inspiration from the energy and attitude of Brooklyn. It's as usual very playful and easy to wear. Oeuf invites kids to feel free, to play, to dance, to create, to dress-up and to express themselves. Who doesn't want to look like cool little Brooklynites??.

These garments are hand-knitted in 100% baby alpaca, a luxurious and sustainable material. Oeuf believes in fair trade and partners with a cooperative in Bolivia, allowing the women to practice their craft in a favorable working environment.

In Norway you can get it at Jungelensleker.
