its so cold here in sydney, well compared to jakarta anyway :) if i had a girl this is an outfit i think we'd do over and over in different coloured tights, comfy, warm and fun. ive had little d in a beanie when we go out to the park and i have to say it is one of the most adorable things i have ever seen... and then when he pulls the beanie off when we get home and reveals his flat curls hat hair *sigh sometimes i think i might just melt.

i love sophisticated artwork on kids clothing, when its done well it looks beautiful. here are two brands i came across that do it so well, some of the prints are so nice you could probably frame them after they've grown out of them and hang it on the wall. soft gallery is based on a collaborations with artists each season, commissioned to create artwork featured on their clothing. the label is founded by designer Tine Holt Møller and fashion photographer and designer Barbara Hvidt. monikako is founded by two mums, a textile design and fine arts professional. how amazing are their prints and appliqués...these are a few of the pieces i love...

loving metal lockers as storage for a kids room. they'd be great for storing books or bits and pieces like art and craft materials or pretty much anything i guess (you can always do with more storage)! of course one of my favourites is the chalkboard covered lockers and the bright pink one...wow...very cute. i guess it would work best with an older child who could easily reach higher shelves and not hurt themselves with the metal. i like the locker bins from pbteen (see pic below) pottery barns teen line, they give you that same industrial look with more versatility and without needing to source and fit in a full scale locker in the house! the locker bins can be slipped into an existing bookshelf or put on the ground.
