One of the biggest joys of our new home is that we have our very own garden.  We’ve wanted one for ages but have never found the right home with the right garden and now we have.  Yay!  So even thought it’s cold and the garden is overgrown we still get out there for short bursts.  Normally when Anya goes out there I make her wear a coat which she finds a bit restrictive for her outdoor adventures.  But recently she was sent this gorgeously soft cashmere cardigan which is oh so warm.  So this Sunday I let Anya wear that with a couple of tee’s under and play outside for a bit and she didn’t once complain of being cold.

I love the stylish touches on this grey cashmere cardi like the mother of pearl buttons that go down the side rather than the middle.  This cardigan is great for dressing up or down too.  Anya’s worn it before with a long dusty pink tutu to a birthday party but this Sunday we were having a relaxed day and a late brunch with some friends so we dressed it down with skinny jeans and some cool orange boots.  The cardigan is made by the French Oscar et Valentine who also make some beautiful baby clothes as well as classic cashmere pieces for boys.  Many of their styles are timeless and classic and come in an understated and very French colour palette.  For something a little edgier, try one of their slogan cashmere jumpers with words like ‘milk’ or ‘rock’ on them – they’re pretty cool too.

Anya spent her time outdoors looking for caterpillars and when she couldn’t find any she pretended they were there anyway and started to collect little leaves to feed them.  If you’ve already got a garden (or back yard as my readers across the pond call it) then you know what a magical place it is for a kid.  And to be able to spend even a little time outside in Winter is a real treat.  As long as the weather’s not crazy cold, I think Anya will be donning her very warm cashmere cardi and heading out there every weekend!

"chunky knits for girls"Finally, finally we have a hint of summer here in London.  The sun is shining and we are wearing short sleeves and sunglasses.  While I am celebrating the desperately awaited arrival of the sun,  there is one Autumn/Winter collection I can’t resist sharing with you right now.  I know chunky knits and woolies are the furthest things from our minds but once you’ve seen this collection you’ll wish winter was back!

Paade Mode is a newish Latvian brand that makes clothes for boys and girls aged 0-8 years.  I’ve pictured a selection from the girls range but there are equally cool knits and more for the boys too.  In the girls collection I love the deep emerald greens and ruby reds that perfectly compliment the more neutral tones.  And the chunky knits paired with sheer, delicate skirts looks so cool.  The leggings in the collection too deserve a mention.  The Autumn/Winter collection like all the other collections, is designed to be dressed up or down so the clothes can be worn for an occasion or as everyday wear.  I visited Paade Mode’s site a few days ago because I wanted to order this dress for my daughter from the current collection.  But now that I’ve seen this newest collection, I don’t think I’ll be able to stop at just one dress!  This collection isn’t available yet but should be towards the end of the Summer.  Have a great weekend and enjoy the sunshine!
