Fashionkins // Flower Play

Our favourite way to spend the weekend is at home with no commintments and nothing to get done. It means we play, read, pick flowers and spend time savouring slowness.

Our yard is filled with native and planted pretties in every shade of pink with oranges and yellows and rainbows at our fingertips.

We are never without vases filled with little blooms and coloured petals to sort and play with.

The last days of summer are bittersweet and inevitable, so we are enjoying every last bit of these days. Outdoor playdates and quirky outfits are always a good idea!

Fashionkins // Beach Babes

As winter draws to an end on the Australian coast, we find ourselves inevitably drawn to the sand and ocean. Soaking in the rays of the sun like lazy cats perched in the sand. Kicking off the winter boots and layers to dip our feet and wade in the salty sea. When we wake it is the first thing that comes to mind as the plan for the day. I pack a basket with a snack, a water bottle, a few animal toys and away we go.

The beach is the most open-ended activity park. Everything can be climbed or dug under. Shells and seaweed are used to make homes for the animals and we pass the hours playing and laughing and filling our tanks with a taste of the spring and summer months just around the bend.Fashionkins // Beach Babes | Babiekins Magazine Fashionkins // Beach Babes | Babiekins Magazine Fashionkins // Beach Babes | Babiekins Magazine Fashionkins // Beach Babes | Babiekins Magazine Fashionkins // Beach Babes | Babiekins Magazine Fashionkins // Beach Babes | Babiekins Magazine Fashionkins // Beach Babes | Babiekins Magazine Fashionkins // Beach Babes | Babiekins Magazine Fashionkins // Beach Babes | Babiekins Magazine Fashionkins // Beach Babes | Babiekins Magazine Fashionkins // Beach Babes | Babiekins Magazine Fashionkins // Beach Babes | Babiekins Magazine Fashionkins // Beach Babes | Babiekins Magazine Fashionkins // Beach Babes | Babiekins Magazine Fashionkins // Beach Babes | Babiekins Magazine

Fashionkins // Wanderlust

There is something about the sun being out longer that creates such a need for adventure in our family. It’s almost like we all thrive in summer, like our spirits where destined for this time of year. Just the sheer joy of getting lost in the possibilities of the next place we can all visit is exciting! Naturally, the pieces I tend to gravitate to are earthy tones with a color vibrance that scream sunshine to me. As we enter August, which my family always called Indian Summer, I am choosing more loose fitting items on the kids, so they don’t overheat. These comfortable pieces don’t lack eye appeal with their stunning prints. We have a little less than a month to enjoy exploring before school starts. I can’t wait to see where our next adventure takes us!

Fashionkins// Hip in the Hamptons

Summertime in the Hamptons doesn’t have to be all about polo shirts and cable knit sweaters (although it can be if you like). Our family has been lucky to spend the summer here for seasonal work and we’ve had a blast exploring all of the towns and villages. I love the aesthetic of the Hamptons- country, beach and modern industrial all blended so tastefully. Straw hats, caftans in neutral tones and gladiator sandals tend to be the go-to outfits for the mamas. Montauk has a little more of a colorful boho vibe, but still maintains that quintessential Hamptons’ vibe- relaxed but chic. As far as kids’ fashion in the Hamptons, it’s all about comfort! Popular brands on the East End include Pink Chicken and Ralph Lauren. In this fashion story, my daughter, Elise, and I spent the morning with Babiekins Magazine’s digital editor and photographer, Elizabeth Pettey. Elizabeth got some killer shots of Elise’s favorite summer outfits at some cool spots in East Hampton/Amagansett/Montauk. The outfits are a mix of textiles and colors and are light and comfortable for the summer.

Fashionkins // Festival Vibes

We’re embracing the essence of Summer this festival season. Channelling the 70’s prints, bell sleeved dresses and gladiator sandals.

This beautifully lightweight and silky boho inspired dress is perfect. As soon as Edie got it on she couldn’t stop playing with the hem detail, calmly twiddling the material in her tiny finger tips and remarking on how pretty it was. It’s refreshing playing around with a different look for her; away from the denim, monochrome and graphic prints I’ve been dressing her in a lot lately. This dress highlights her wistful imagination and her carefree playful spirit.

Tired from chasing squirrels; Edie sat down in some long grasses to adjust her intricate flower crown, before neatly arranging her dress around her ankles and proclaiming she was ”The Queen of flowers and juicy berries Mumma”.

This girl, My perfect summer personified.
