Adorn: H & M Home


we are moving to a new apartment in a week and i am getting so excited. i know i should be posting on summer clothes and easter treats but all i can look at is decor and storage solutions. i hadn't been on h & m's website in awhile and boy was i blown away at the cuteness they have for kids. i am definitely making some purchases! 

please hang in there while we transition, i am sure to have some radio silence while we set up shop, but i'll be back and better than ever :)


Ahhs: DittoHouse in da House!


quickie post tonight since i got a super sick kindergartener in my house. but you must check out dittohouse, a line of graphic, modern throw blankets and pillow covers made in america with sustainable fibers. the line of textile designs is inspired by the pioneers of the optical art movement, inuit prints and contemporary pop culture. i could see a baby josef albers swaddled in one of these beautiful blankets.

Fashion Coos: April Showers with Ladida



you know it's been a long winter when you are looking forward to rainy spring days. although, i do love the fragrant air and splashing around on a warm april afternoon. in preparation for the sprinkles on the horizon, we had a little fashion shoot with ladida-- it was actually snowing when we took these shots!

this season at ladida you will find an expertly curated selection of all the must-have pieces for spring and summer. fresh colors, playful prints--umbrellas!-- and some seriously fashion forward looks, like a transparent raincoat for little ladies. the boy's department at ladida is without a doubt one of my faves, you will find the most sophisticated looks for little boys and gorgeous footwear.

adela is wearing a wolf + rita dress, coco blanc raincoat and billieblush umbrella. mr. h is showing off an emile et ida umbrella print tee. these are clothes my kids truly love to wear.

Books to Coo About: A Line Can Be




laura ljungkvist is an award-winning swedish designer and illustrator, and lucky for us and our kids, she's brought back her keen eye and scandinavian style to the children's book category with her latest release, a line can be (pow!).  i am just loving using this board book to teach my almost 3-year old about opposites and even some design and math basics as we talk about the infinite possibilities of a simple line.

Bathtime with Aden + Anais

bath time just got way more luxe. the new aden + anais toddler towels offer the softness and quality of their beautiful infant swaddles in a large-sized towel for you growing little one. they are impossibly soft and come in a ton of gorgeous designs-- we are especially in love with the bright stars. aden + anais also has a baby skincare line, which to no surprise smells so good you will be stealing it for yourself. 






Ahhs: Oli & Carol

need i say more? well if i do, i am not sure we are friends. ha!

okay, so you are not going to believe that these are the creation of two sisters ages 20 and 15! ummm... i was chasing boys and/or sneaking into rock shows at both of those ages. certainly not running a business selling the most artful bath toys known to humankind! i guess barcelona produces way more put together youngster than alaska. i am so banana cakes obsessed with these i want to buy each every one. a little bird said that they will be on the shelves at n o r m a n & j u l e s next week.
