I'm enjoying a week off from work with beautiful summerlike weather. So, not closet organizing yet, just hanging out in the park with friends and kids. Perfect. I had to change clothes today, after 10 minutes outside I realised I couldn't wear boots and jeans.
My daughter keeps asking why I'm taking all these headless shots, and wanted to take one too. I got her these Isabel Marant Etoile sweatpants+top on eBay for 24 euro, I just couldn't resist it. I never buy designer clothes for my children, but this is comfy and she can play around in it. I love getting clothes for her (for my boy as well, but he's still a baby), and it's quite important to me that the clothes don't restrict her in any way. Today I ran by Zara kids to see if I could find some shorts for her. They had a lot of nice tops and shorts, but also lots of clothes that are just smaller versions of adult clothes. It might look cute, but they are not designed to climb trees in. I have found some great basics for her there, striped tees, dresses and cardigans, but the overall impression is a miniature Zara Woman. As for other clothes chains, like H&M, they are a lot worse, very girly/boyish. The girl section is all pink with Hello Kitty prints and the boy section is all blue/grey with Spiderman prints. I can't stand it, it's just ugly. I realise that many of you probably don't have children, so I'll leave the subject here, but for those who might be interested Mini Rodini and Popupshop make wonderful children's clothes.
Etoile shirt, J Brand jeans and IM Boots, I later changed to Etoile pants, Hope tee and A.P.C sandals.
