STYLING AND TEXT BY APRIL PERRY
The end of this summer brings a bitter-sweet feelings this year. Even as Autumn has always been both mine and my only childs favorite season, ( Mine for clothing and he for the perfect adventuring weather), it’s a bit sad this year as Q will be turning 4 this Fall. I’m definitely feeling like 4 years old is the not so magic number where his “baby’ hood is over and he’s turning into a kid. I’m feeling some consolation in the fact that he’s not yet old enough here in the U.S. and won’t be starting kindy yet. So, at least we still have more time at home together and can spend the days doing whatever he pleases and savouring every moment of last bit of time we have where it’s just the two of us.
On a lighter note, I’m beyond excited to pack away our “eh” Summer wardrobes and begin filing our closets with jumpers in cozy lambs wools, cahmeres, alpacas, and cotton knits. Putting away our birkenstocks in place of luxurious leather boots that feel like butter. And layering, layering…and more layering!!
We’ve recieved so many goreous pieces from one of our perennial fall favorites Bobo Choses. I’m beyond impressed with all the incredibly soft sweaters, knit hats and pure magic (“wink-wink”)prints. Not to mention the two best fitting pairs of pansts we’ve recieved so far from any of the new season drops. Their new collection is filled with magicians, and hand tricks and bunnies..Oh my!! Here we’ve styled some of our favorite pieces in several different looks. So, shall we begin???
Bobo bunnies have been a must have since he and I both swooped up every kids and adult piece avaiable last Autumn!
