Fall style

It has been a bit gray in the mornings so I think it´s safe to start talking about fall style. Have you had a look online for any new styles or do you go by ” we need this upgraded”. I still have to go through the girls closets as I think I will find plenty there that just does not fit anymore. Yesterday morning Bubble Gum ( they dress themselves nowadays) came out of her room in a long sleeved t-shirt and let´s just say the sleeves were not long anymore. So the sell & donate piles are being made here very soon. It´s also useful as then I get a feeling as to what we have that does fit and we don´t forget something cute at the end of the closet so to speak.

What I know we do need a new pair of is wellies, rain boots. This year we are trying the Aigle lollipops that I think look very cute and classic. I obviously would love them in yellow, I think yellow looks so bright and cheery on rainy days but my girls love their pink ( still). For Fall coats and jackets we have the very basic navy Uniqlo lightweight down jackets and the trench coats from Polarn o Pyret we got last Spring as gifts. They are very versatile and work on rainy days too. And the girls have their Ver de Terre jackets and pants too. I bought one cute pink on sale in the summer but we got navy blue pants with that as the light pink pants need so much washing. They are good for the second grader for after school ” club” where they are playing outside and for the 4th grader on sports days outside if needed. Then we do have the Petit Bateu rain coats too.

Hi! Oh it´s been a while since I opened my computer! But now the kids are at camp and I decided to take a little break from organising our things and say hello. I hope your summer has had a wonderful start. Ours could not have been better, except if we had a little less unpacking and a little more island hanging. But I´m not complaining as putting our belongings where they belong is the best part of renovation and moving. If only I had a few things less. But they are all so lovely I can´t seem to be able to part with them either. 

Anyhow, I met up with the lovely Katarina of Nona K. at her new shop location at Kasarminkatu, a stone throw away from Esplanad park ( mostly her hand maid treasures now a days which is good because it is what I loved best about her previous store anyway) and she gave the girls the loveliest midsummer dress and skirt. Such perfection! You can find ready made ones in her store or you can order one in your kids size from her ( she makes them in like a day). I also ordered the prettiest yellow Liberty Betsy summer dress ( in next years size so we can use it for a few summers in a row) and am looking forward to seeing it on the girls when it´s ready. Here are the loveliest checkered items! A summer must have!

Kun lähipiiriin syntyy samaan aikaan pieni serkkutyttö ja rakkaalle ystävälle suloinen poikavauva on onnea päästä nuuhkuttelemaan pieniä ihmisen alkuja. Rakastan vauvoja aivan hirmuisesti ja olen aina niin onnellinen pieni vauva sylissäni. Olen ollut jo pienenä lapsena hyvin äidillinen ja leikin nukeilla todella pitkään ja nimenomaan se äidin rooli oli nukkeleikeissä minulle se tärkeä rooli. Omat lapseni olen nyt kyllä aika varmasti tehnyt ja enää ei pienten vauvojen sylissä pitäminen aiheuta välitöntä vauvakuumetta, mutta on kyllä ihana elää mukana tärkeiden ihmisten elämässä tuota vaihetta.
