My son, like most toddlers, loves to explore and to imaginative play – lately he has been spending most of his afternoons in our front yard slaying dragons with sticks. Because of my son’s love of castles and dragons, we took a drive to Königswinter, a city/summer resort on the right bank of the Rhine River in Germany. We went to Schloss Drachenburg, a mixture of a Villa-Mansion and Castle built atop a summit with an impressive view of Königswinter and the Rhine river. The summit also has the ruins of a castle built in the early 12th century, known to the locals as Drachenfels, because a cave in the hill is said to have sheltered a dragon (German=Drachen) that was slain by the hero Seigfried. My son may not be Seigfried, but once he was on the summit with his wooden sword there was no dragon that could get in his way from protecting his princess (a.k.a. mama).
My little guy just can’t get enough of superheroes and I can never get enough of Beau Loves. One of my favorite pieces from their AW14 drop is the Hero Jacket: a casual black baseball jacket with the signature white mask logo on the back. When the temperature starts to drop, layering is key and this lightweight jacket is perfect for doing so. I’m also a sucker for small details and love that the jacket’s pressed buttons also display the beloved mask logo. I wanted an oversized look, so I went one size up and got Carter a 5/6. This jacket will be sure to last him a few seasons, but I cringe at the thought of the inevitable day he outgrows it or the superhero phase.
