Five questions with Julie Kohlhoff from macarons
July 11, 2016
I remember being introduced to macarons 5 years ago when they first presented their collection at the local children's fashion fair here in Amsterdam. Julie and Veit, joined by their baby girl and Veit's mother, were presenting a different, interesting collection that really stood out -- with amazing double-knit fabrics they had developed themselves and intriguing, cool ...

Darling Dotty Dungarees
May 30, 2016
I love dungarees on little children. They are just so cute to look at, and so practical for crawling babies, trotting toddlers or climbing kids! They are easy to layer, making them ideal to wear all year round. The one clothing item I have continuously dressed my children in for the past 10 years, passing them on from sibling to ...

Milk & Biscuits
May 16, 2016
I discovered Milk and Biscuits a couple of years ago at Playtime in Paris.

Boys swim shorts from Beanie & Bear
May 12, 2016
I discovered the vibrant Beanie & Bear swimwear range at the Dot to Dot tradeshow last spring, and while I don't normally go for bright neon colours, I immediately fell for these cute swim shorts for my boys. The tailored style and short cut makes them a cross between the tighter-fitting swimsuits they usually wear, and ...

My four little monkeys... in Imps&Elfs
April 25, 2016
Imps&Elfs is by far my favourite Dutch jeans brand. I just love the way their trousers fit -- they're just so flattering, and so cool! My kids also find them the most comfortable ones to wear -- they pick them out of the clean laundry basket before they're even folded and on the shelf. Imps&Elfs recently designed ...

Poco Nido Velcro Superhero Shoes
April 1, 2016
The lovely teachers at Casper's school had been asking me to get him shoes without laces for a while already. They explained to me that when children are able to put on and take off their own shoes their independence and self-confidence grows. It's funny, because in the nursery class of the Dutch school the other children go ...
