wee wednesday with lindsay (on friday) | my little style muse

I have always loved a well dressed child. And I don't mean a fancy dressed, overpriced frock wearing child. I mean a child with style. And let's face it, it's really the parents style in teeny form, at least so long as it's the parents picking the clothes out. My favorite style for little ones always takes into account how the clothing feels as well as looks. Soft cottons, warm and fuzzy wools, bright colors, gorgeous muted tones and classic styles. I love a slightly baggier look on both girls and boys, tops that drape and colors that don't scream "kid" are what I gravitate to. 

People are always asking me what brands I love and where I shop. Having a children's shop, Darling Clementinesince 2011 I've had the chance to stock some of my favorite brands, including Nico NicoGo Gently BabyAce & Jig,Misha LuluBobo Choses & Atsuyo et Akiko. In addition to my own shop, I stock our closest with baby & kids basics from Mabo Kids, The Gap, Zara and H & M. The real magic though is how you style your kids clothing. Pairing things well & adding accessories really changes a cheap basic into something special. 

My favorite muse is my own daughter, Juliette. She's 4.5 years old now and has strong opinions about what she wears, and I'm happy to fill her drawers with my favorites, and then let her have her way with how to wear each piece. Here are some of my favorite looks of hers over the years. 

I just had my second baby about 8 weeks ago, a little boy this time, so the fun continues... now to dressing a boy! Eeeps!

Wee Wednesdays | Everyday Artist & Adventurer

I'm a city girl, and I'm raising 2 little ones in a teeny space in Brooklyn, but that doesn't mean their imaginations are suffering. We don't need a private back yard to have adventures. Right around the corner from us are playgrounds & parks that we basically move into during Spring, Summer & Fall. And right in my Brooklyn neighborhood of Greenpoint is the gorgeous light filled studio of Wovenplay. It is here they create their children's line.  

Their focus is children's play costumes made from silk, bright cottons, hand printing & hand made trims to spark the imagination. 

They create everyday wear as well as costume pieces. Think gorgeous tights, feather crowns, and costumes for ballerinas, cowboys and voyagers. They call it "creative couture for the everyday artist and adventurer". I love that. 

Hope Wovenplay inspires the creativity in you & your little ones! 

See you next week!
