Fall style

by Sofia   -   in Good things for kids  Shopping

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!

Happy Monday!

I hope you had a lovely weekend. I must admit I was not at my best. My fuse was very short and I snapped at my family constantly. Luckily I am very good at apologising too and took myself out running in some fresh air to be less moody. I wish I was just always kind but every little thing seemed to irritate me. And I can´t blame it on the living from boxes and the struggle to keep things even half organised because a person can be nice and kind in any circumstance. But I can tell you that it is so lovely to actually get a home soon. Our things are coming to the apartment form the storage on Friday. Unfortunately because yet some delays the renovation is not finished by then so we can not move in yet. But at least I can start unpacking some rooms ( at least the girls´ bedrooms). So when we do move in then all the rooms are not filled with boxes. I had high hopes of spending Mother´s Day in the new house but it will be just as meaningful anywhere. Here are some things I might like for Mother´s Day if I did not already have them. I have wished for an Aerin Lilac path scented candle to have by my new bed. I have the perfume and it is so feminine and really makes you think of those early summer days when you walk by some lilacs and just inhale a long deep breath of that scent.



These Gauhar earrings are so gorgeous. The mother of pearl and gold just glow! These kind of earrings give you that extra little something. I´m saving mine a little for a special occasion. But it´s hard not to wear them. 



I love that hair accessories are back and better than ever. These clips hold even my long & thick hair. With little effort you can make it look like you actually put some in.
