The onset of spring signals summer before we know it. Yes once the temperature hits 65, it’s only a matter of weeks before it’s “swimsuits and sunnies” season. Spring calls for a number of refreshes - from our hair, to our beauty products to our clothing. I also love a little wardrobe refresh for Callum, from our go-to brands, as well as new ones.
Callum and I headed to LaLa Land over Spring Break, where he was able to sneak peak some of our favorite new pieces that will have him splish-splashing in style all summer along. Check them out below.
The Animals Observatory
This is the third collaboration between Lara Aguilar, brainchild behind Bobo Choses and Jan Abdreu. The result is magic. The quality is amazing and everything is worn into perfection for that 1970’s vintage vibe. Callum especially loves the tee’s, tanks and sweatshirts, because the feel is so yummy and comfy. Everything is so relaxed and super easy to wear.
Beau Loves UK
Hands down, one of my favorite brands. So cool and stylish that I wish it came in adult sizes! Inspired by the birth of her son Beau, Faye Wilde launched this unisex (yes)! line in 2010 featuring a palette of black, white and grey, always mixed with a hint of color. This season is all about love and hearts - the summer of love, indeed.
Hands down the best flip flops. Callum literally lives in them from the moment it hits 70 degrees. They come in a bunch of variations, from fur to metallic, but we also love the entire line. Akid was founded by wife and hubby duo, Ashleigh Dempster and Matt George. After their first son was born, they saw a void in the market for cook kids kicks. Thanks guys!
Founded in 2006 by illustrator Cassandra Rhodin, this Swedish label is Callum approved, namely for the creative graphics on its tees, as well as all the shorts and sweatshirts. I especially love the boy’s swim shorts, this fitted style is so hard to find so I always scoop up a bunch each season. The best part is that the fabric is made of 78% recycled polyamide, aka residual fishnets, old carpets and production waste. These fishnets would otherwise end up in the world’s oceans, trapping fish and destroying coral reefs, so that’s major!
Started by Julie Siden and inspired by her daughters, Sid NYC is a complete collection of tops, dresses, skirts and pants. We’re loving the vintage, one of a kind Levi’s jackets. Callum has already been rocking his, from the playground to dinner to the beach.
This skater inspired kid’s line is based in Australia, which makes complete sense since it is all about sun and surf - PERFECT for summer. There’s a strong music influence too and Callum always loves the graphics on the tees. The shorts are super comfy, with their oh-so perfect drop crotch. Callum always feel like he’s “taking a walk on the wild side,” while still being totally adorbs.
