On Sunday we were out having lunch when I heard a man say ‘wow, look at those purple shoes… what a cool baby!”. It took me a moment to realise he was talking about my baby wearing her deep pinky-purple Ben Simons. It was such a delightful moment as out of the blue, a fully grown man was so visibly excited about a little pair of purple shoes. My daughter was wearing the bright shoes with muted fall coloured clothes so the shoes really stood out.
I love the effect of combining lots of soft neutral tones with unexpected pops of bright colour. And that’s why I love the wonderfully French and super chic boutique that is Bonton. They have a real knack of putting together fabulous looks for both boys and girls; looks where they use lots of sandy beiges, soft greys and chocolate browns and then they throw in that solid block of colour which takes an outfit from nice to super stand-out nice.
Most of their kids clothes come in a huge range of colours so you can mix and match and choose which part of the outfit you want make bold. It could be as simple as a bright yellow scarf thrown over a pale brown dress or you could go for bright red trousers with a soft grey shirt. The choice is yours. I’m currently lusting over those hot pink shoes… how great are they? I’ve also spotted the perfect little skirt to go with. Visit Bonton to see their entire collection and don’t miss their lovely decor stuff much of which has a delightful little vintage twist.boys clothes, clothes, cool kids clothes, french clothes, French design, girls clothes, winter clothes
