I think I am longing for the warm summer months and they can't seem to be coming quick enough! Today might be the coldest day of the year and so I thought it would only be appropriate to talk about some beautiful swimsuits! I have got to keep finding ways to keep my soul happy. I am so happy I discovered the wonderful world of Gray Benko Photography, her photos are full of life and color and happy moments and the bonus part is that I got to discover some amazing swimwear by Marysia Swim through Gray's website.
Cabbages & Kings is base out of NYC and all of the accessories are handmade by Peruvian artisans which all work with a network that helps strengthen the capacities of local and base communities. So well designed, beautifully handcrafted and ethical! Let's not forget super soft and hypoallergenic. Awesome!
As always, Alexa did a great job at designing the Fall 2013 collection. It's great that it is unisex, perfect for boys and girls. I am loving the grey and yellow scarf and oatmeal leg warmers, oh wait the baby blue and red patterned scarf is pretty cool too! Perfect accessories for layering on those cold days ahead.
Are you getting ready for winter? Bring it on! ok, not just yet...
Check out the collection on their website, you can shop there too!
Oh it's starting to get cold around here and before you know it the street will be covered in snow. The one thing my kids don't have currently in their wardrobe are snowsuits. And I am kinda really loving the new MINI RODINI Explorer collection.
These are not only adorable but super high tech- I mean waterproof, special padding, taped seams. Just what we need for our cold and wet climate. You can read all about it here.
Don't worry, they don't only have one piece suits, the collection comprises of Parkas, trousers and mittens as well. While you are there check out heir fall collection, everything is so cool, I particularly love all their prints.
I added some khaki fabric to add a little punch of colour and some contrast.
I am very pleased with the end result. It helps when the patterns are easy to put together, when the instructions are easy to follow and clear and when the designs are simply awesome.
I have my eyes on a few more designs in this book, I just love the ruffle top as well as the cute round pocket dress. Little MissE would love it if I made her a princess dress for Halloween, what little girl wouldn't?! You can have a look at all the styles on the Five in Ten Designs website and purchase it there too.
I must thank Heidi from Elegance & Elephants for providing me with the book in exchange for a review. She is one of the 5 talented designers, these ladies came up with one fun concept and I can't wait to see what vol.2 will bring. A pant block would be amazing! Just saying!!!
MissE loved her little dress, didn't even argue or pout or whine about taking the photos...
I paired the dress with a vintage vera scarf, some vintage crocheted socks and some pink converse.
I have a fear of making buttonholes. However, I found a way of making them on my embroidery machine at work- I am a happy woman!
