Beau LOves AW16 – Quirky kids fashion from the UK

Beau LOves is one of my absolute favorite kidswear brands out there! I love their raw and edgy gender-neutral style, the always curated though simple cut in their garments and their dark but still infantile prints – such a brilliant combination of cool contrasts! The London based brand gets its inspiration from the designer, Faye Wilde's son Beau […]

Yessss, I'm back and ready to rumble! My maternity leave from the blog has been way longer than expected, but now I have finally gotten a little more time off to get this rocking.

Soft must-haves for the newborn baby

Hey everyone!

A quick hello before the baby is born, while I'm lying in pure whale style on my couch, dreaming about ice cream, swimming pools, the fresh sea breeze, even snowy mountains and anything else cold to kill this damn heat (excuse moi)! I have been doing my wishlist of must-haves for the baby and his room, which I thought I would share with you guys. 

First of all, I am thinking soft, softer, softest, simple and quirky – clean lines with dashes of color, things that will last and keep him interested for years, because we won't be having another kid to pass it on to…. at least it is not in our plans! And no, we still don't have anything prepared… In my first pregnancy I had everything ready when I was like 5 months pregnant! What happened? When does the nesting syndrome kick in? This second pregnancy has really skipped my mind… Oh well, at least the wishlist is done and we'll take it from there 😉

Coolest kids' swimwear for summer 2015!

Oh, I am so enjoying a bit of me-and-my-big-fat-tummy-time here on my almost-maternity leave, having time to read, do yoga and even watch an occasional movie! I haven't had that since my last maternity leave 4 years ago. Very big stuff!

So lately I am just seeing the coolest swimwear for kids everywhere I look and so I thought I'd better share some of my finds with you, since this has not at all been an easy task for me other years. I always seem to find them being too boring, too hula hula, too girlish or boyish and with the same flower print, marine theme or palm trees every year (this goes for adult sizes too!) and which has never been me (I take black with me to my grave). 

Coolest kids' swimwear for summer 2015! - Nununu Plus swimsuit
Awesome Nununu Plus swimsuit found in Fourmonkeys
But the kids market has definitely started to get a little more interesting these last couple of years, first of all, with the more original and experimenting brands amplifying their collections of quirky designs to swimwear without this necessarily having to be the typical summer prints, here I am thinking obvious brands like Gardner and the Gang or Beau LOves and also Mini Rodini who always makes the cutest swimwear.

But then there are all of these super cool and surprising new brands with a specific focus on high quality, sunsafe swimwear with fun and unique designs like the Spanish brand Dosydos, the Dutch brand Beach and Bandit and of course Little Creative Factory from my present hometown, Barcelona. 

Here is a little mix of the ones I love the most:

I adore Gardner and the Gang! This Patsy swimsuit found in  Mini X Style is just too good!!!

Coolest kids' swimwear for summer 2015! - Little Creative Factory

So what do you think? You are of course very welcome to add more favorites to the list to help out the other mommies 😉 I have had a difficult time in finding something really cool for boys which for me usually is the easiest part, so any suggestions?
