We’ve just come back from a little mini break which we spent in Germany — such a wonderful country to travel through with children! I love how you can drive just for a few hours, and find yet another beautiful town, castle, park, palace, or museum to visit. There are plenty of lovely hotels around with convenient family rooms and great restaurants (always with a high chair, a kids menu, and plenty of friendly staff available). Everything is so well organised and clean, and people are so welcoming and kind. We will definitely be back, because there is so much more to discover in Germany!
One of our stops brought us to Stuttgart, where we stayed with Julie and Veit of the German eco-brand Macarons and their two sweet little daughters Cléo and Cécile. It was so nice to spend time in their lovely city, and hang out with them, of course. They really spoiled us! I also loved visiting their new offices, so nice to see all of their wonderful pieces together in one place. And to see all of the hard work in progress!
I recently posted about Macarons amazing fabrics and the 100% organic and ecological production process, which is really admirable and special. But they also create lovely fashion, with adorable shapes and patterns. One of my favourite pieces of this current collection is this limited edition skirt SARA, made from a vintage double woven Japanese Ikat fabric on one side and fully reversible to show the Macarons seersucker fabric on the other side. My sweet Sara received one namesake skirt as a gift from Julie and it looks just absolutely adorable on her! (Wouldn’t this skirt be wonderful in an adult version as well??)
And here are some photos I took of Ava a few weeks ago, wearing skirt Sara as well. And Casper is wearing sunhat Henni and pullover Paula, which is just perfect for summer! (And the way the stripes all come together in the pattern of the hat once again shows the level of detail of the works of Macarons.)
