When planning our trip to Iceland I knew I needed to keep my kids warm and still look good for the crazy load of photos! Luckily, I found Chasing Windmills Kids, a company that makes merino wool (not so) basics. The mustard patched long johns worked perfectly with Iceland’s geography. Pair the shirt with bright rainbow fringe leggings from Indi Scout as well as a couple selected hand knitted items and I have a child that perfectly matches the wonderful geo-thermal mud pits of Iceland. Thankfully she smells a bit better than they did though!

Mix-matched knits in bright jewel tones are a great way to transition from winter to spring!

It’s almost that time of year when life starts to slow down a bit. More family time spent at home cuddled up by the fire, reading our favorite books together. There is nothing I love more than a perfectly soft knit sweater to stay warm while you are outside and comfortable while inside.

Realness. Right now Scandinavia and Nordic features are showing at their most genuine. Trees and roots. Mom and child. Soft wool and raw leathers. Everything surrounded by pure, white snow. Does the traditional pattern, that the little one’s wearing, look familiar to you? We’re totally crazy about this minature version of Gudrun & Gudrun’s classic sweater, made world-famous through a popular Danish TV series. The adult sweater pictured here is hand knit suri alpaca/merino wool.
Knits are undoubtedly the go-to textiles during the cooler months. While they come in a vast array of colors and patterns, there is something so chic about head-to-toe gray. It’s such a soothing color to look at and wear. Because they are neutral pieces and can be mixed with other pieces in your babiekin’s wardrobe, high quality knits in gray hues are a fantastic investment.
