One of our all time favourite blogs here at AlexandAlexa.com is blog Babyccino Kids. Written by three friends scattered across Europe (London, Paris, and Amsterdam), they offer an interesting international perspective on modern family life.
We were lucky enough to have one of the three ladies, Esther van de Paal (who lives in Amsterdame with her husband and three children), do a guest post for us, choosing her favourite pieces for girls, boys and babies.
I just love the combination of wellies, shorts and a fisherman’s hat on every little boy. It’s just so classic, and playful and adventurous at the same time! Of course the shorts need pockets — where else should all those little treasures, that boys are always gathering, be kept? The striped Petit Bateau hoodie belong’s in every boy’s wardrobe — again, it’s so classic, but oh so trendy this summer! And how fun is the T-shirt, where the colourful zebra ask the black and white zebra: “new socks?” (He’s wearing the same colourful, stripy socks as I featured in this look!!). My own son would go crazy over that airplane toy — you can attach it to a bike so it flies with you. So cool!!
This look is so cool, it’s classy and retro, but hip and trendy at the same time. I’m loving the clogs I see everywhere this summer; especially combined with cute shorts like these! The stripy tank is so fun, and it ads innocence to the look. I think it works well combined with the colourful cardigan! The Sasek books are a favourite in our house, and especially the ‘This is London’ one (our two oldest children were born in London).
So cute, that red bubbly romper. Any little baby girl will look effortlessly adorable in it, and how cute is it combined with those tiny sandals? Just add a frilly checked sunhat and a cute cardigan for when it gets chilly (how adorable are the ducks???) and voila. All set. Our baby Ava has a similar silver rattle and it has been a favourite toy since she was born. Such a lovely gift, and surely a keepsake for the rest of her life! (I still have my own silver baby rattle.)
Loving the stripes here, and how cute is the fact that Jack (in the box) is featuring them too? The little playsuit is adorable, it will show that little baby belly sticking out, which I always love. The cardigan ads a bolder element to the selection — I’m loving the chunky knit and grandfather style. Sweet. And those magnetic Vilac cars are great, they come apart in three parts, and are easily clicked together again. (So they can conveniently start practising how to fix cars at a very early age.)
