Travelkins // Je t'aime Paris

 

A few weekends ago our little family took a road trip to Paris. Being an American who recently relocated to Düsseldorf, Germany, I can hardly believe I am saying this myself : a road trip to Paris! I must admit Paris was a lot of fun with a toddler (even though it rained the entire weekend we were there).

 

We stayed in the Saint-Germain-des-Pres Quarter, an area with everything – restaurants, cafes and shops. It is also close to the Louvre Museum and the Luxembourg Gardens, where my son had a blast splashing in rain puddles; luckily we remembered to bring a change of clothes. We also discovered the Left Bank promenade called the Berges de Seine (Banks of the Seine) a 1.5-mile pedestrian walkway with edible and floating gardens, patches of local plants and innovative areas for babiekins and their parents to play and relax. We ended our weekend with a fabulous diner at the famous cafe, Le Deux Magot, where my son ate a whole loaf of French Bread… when in Paris!

Lil' Stylekins // Lounging Threads

As a stay at home mom, the majority of our time is spent at home. I am not much of a homebody, but between cleaning, cooking and keeping up with the house, I am forced to spend time indoors. Because Kaylee has not started school yet, she has been my sidekick at home for the past 4 years. It’s always nice to have threads to wear when lounging that still make you feel somewhat fashionable in your daily life. I am constantly in search of clothes that are both comfortable and practical for being at home (since that’s where we spend the majority of our time). I specifically look for two things when shopping for her clothes- the fit, and the fabric. It must be soft and movable. This is one of my daughters favorite jumpsuits because of how soft the velvet feels on her skin. My favorite part of these types of pieces is how well they transition from comfortable to fashionable, with just a few simple accessories!

Lil'Stylekins// Carbon Soldiers

Guest post by Beth Morris.

Since they were newborns, my children’s staple wardrobe items have been the amazing homegrown New Zealand brand, Carbon Soldier. It is run and owned by some of my family and it has a style all of its own. Its edgy and uber cool. A lot of the pieces can be used in a unisex way that suits a mom with pair like me. Im a lover of black on my kids, especially my long blond locked girl and she has no hesitations wearing their stunning dresses and skirts. It is clothing that you’ll want for yourselves. The quality is also top notch and you can mix and match each season with a streamlined theme.
