Pool season is here!

We’re back! More than a week away, a huge project becoming more real as the weeks pass and I have almost no time to write! But I wanted to stop for a bit and share with you these cute photos of ivi’s first time (this year) at the pool!

fallingforivi_atthepool_jumping_smile_babyfashion

I’m actually counting it as the first time given that it’s actually the first time she plays more in the water and has notion of what’s going on… 😛 Actually everytime she sees these pictures she runs to the door and asks me to take her to the pool 😀 …so I’m guessing she loved it!

Now, as with every post, here are some recommendations on swimuits for your baby girl. What do I recommend in terms on trends? I prefer one-pieces instead of bikinis for this specific age, since they still have that cute baby belly and a two-piece would probably be rolling up constantly, becoming a bit uncomfortable. Talking about prints, I must say (as I said it before in other posts) florals are super strong this season, yet also I’ve been seing digital prints with photographs of objects or sunsets, and they look amazing! And last but not least ruffles, always consider ruffles for this season either in swimwear and regular clothing.

Don’t forget about overalls

As fashionista.com reported, overalls are still in for Spring 2016. Obviously, the site is referring to the use of overalls on women, yet it’s a great excuse for little girls to take advantage of this trend as well!

This piece is great for multiple ocassions and so matchable! Made normally out of denim,  which combines with almost everything, fits perfectly for an afternoon walk, a day at the park, running errands… you name it!

fallingforivi_withguitar_smileybaby

In our case we went to a small town near the city to have some lunch and walk around las Sunday. We bought this little guitar in a small artisan market at the main plaza, and ivi went crazy about it immediately!

fallingforivi_together_withguitar_cutebaby

Above all things, I love weekends because it’s when we enjoy family time at its best. And of course, ivi as smiley and fun to be around as it is, makes us want the weekend to come even sooner!

Here are some great options on overalls for your little girls to wear, hope you like them as I do!

Active attire for babies?

And I’m not saying babies should be doing burpees and situps as we should, but when it comes to going on a family trip to a national park or a bicycle ride on the weekends, which are the best options for your child to wear?

fallingforivi_out_nature_natpark

Last Sunday we went to this beautiful national park outside the city, the weather was a bit chilly (which is odd for May and I already had packed all of ivi’s winter clothing), so this main question came into my mind when changing her. I had very few options since I wanted something chic but comfy and in a stain resistant fabric… We were rushing because it was alrealy late (trying to leave home before 11am on Sunday it’s becoming an impossible task for us :P), so I chose a simple flower jacket from H&M, grey cotton pants and converse sneakers… FAIL haha

fallingforivi_wetsneakers_babystyle

Her pants got all wet, her sneakers as well (how did I never think of that possibility?!) …so thanks to this incident I went online as usual and looked for some great options for your babies to wear when going on this kind of trips, hope this helps you out!

TIPS ON BABY GEAR WHEN GOING ON LONG TRIPS OUTDOORS

Use specialized fabrics: waterproof, dryfit gear, and similar. It’s important to mantain your child dry, and these fabrics help create a barrier to protect your baby’s skin. I found out Old Navy has great active gear even for little ones!

Screen Shot 2016-05-18 at 11.34.25

Old Navy Active Capri, $14.94 USD

In rainy days, look for waterproof sneakers: Or even better, sometimes boots are a great option as well. I don’t really love rainboots, I find the very stiff for baby feet, but actually anything is better than sandals or in my case, fabric sneakers :S

Puma Trinomic XT1 Plus V sneaker, $54.95 USD

Caps: when days are really sunny, this type of item really helps on protecting your baby from sunlight and its effects. Try this or many other options available @zara !

Zara Crown hat, $12.90 USD

Hope you like these great finds! Have you and your kid had troubled outdoors trips like ours? Tell me all about it! …until then, bye!

What to wear to a local market

Farmers’ markets, design markets, food truck festivals, flea markets… there are just too many new options to go out and wanderlust nowadays, so perhaps you may wonder which would be the best outfits to pull out in any event of this kind.

ivianddad_jumpsuitbaby_localmarket

If your city is hot as hell as ours now is, chances of wearing a cool blazer, a scarf or pairing boots even with shorts are nearly unthinkable. Yet, there are fresh and chic options to wear.

 

iviandmom_babygirlstyle_cutebaby

I prepared a small group of ideas of what your baby can wear when going to a local market market in a seriously hot day. Let me know your go-to option!

1  THE SHORT JUMPSUIT

As I mentioned in a past post, the jumpsuit is a great option for this season. In terms of going to an outdoors event like these, this garment is super comfy, and normally comes with pretty cool prints.

Screen Shot 2016-05-03 at 16.42.25

Rylee & Cru peaches jumpsuit, $60 USD

2  THE MAXI DRESS

A super fresh option, and chic as ever! Almost all maxidress options that you may find have awesome prints and girly details, with a great flowy look! Check out this gorgeous Old Navy option:

Old Navy blue floral maxi dress, $14.99 USD

3  THE DENIM ROMPER

This may not be the lightest option, yet is the easiest to wear and combine. Denim by itself doesn’t need much to feel like a complete look, and if it already has added details like the embroidery on this River Island mini example, your baby will be pretty much good to go.

Screen Shot 2016-05-03 at 16.37.01

River Island mini Denis Playsuit, $32 USD

4  THE ALL-COTTON JUMPER

Mostly a really simple option, but with the right accesories (a cool backpack or statement shoes) this garment becomes the easiest to wear and also the freshest option! This June & January option I found is great.

June and January tank jumper, $29 USD

Dark jungle

Contrasting the last all white post, now I made this set with a dark jungle printed dress from baby Gap, and matched it with black lace-up sandals from mini River Island that I adore. To give the final touch to this set I added a golden headwrap and a white Topshop backpack, this last one is actually from the Women’s department but wouldn’t be great to find this for toddlers? Hope someday I find one! Dark jungle

 

White on white jungle

Check this all white outfit I compiled inspired on my last post of ivi’s jungle blouse! Found this gorgeous Little Marc Jacobs jungle blouse, paired it with white jeans and lace-up sandals from mini River Island… Perfect!

 

6 chic backpacks for your baby girl

Hello there!

Just recently found a gorgeous backpack from Zara baby with a confetti print, didn’t actually hesitate a bit and got it for ivi. Why should I buy a backpack for a baby girl? (toddler already I guess, she grows just too fast) Didn’t actually know at the moment, just loved it and got it… Turns out she loved it too! Now she carries it around here and there and whenever she sees it in her closet definitely wants to wear it.

This weekend we’re going away so I’m thinking this could really be useful since she can carry her favorite little toys, some juice, cookies, you name it!

I gathered 6 pretty chic backpacks for your tiny girls to use, not too cute, not too serious, just the right amount of coolness… Take a look at ivi’s photos and my backpack finds!

ivi wears: Tucker and Tate dress, H&M boots, Zara baby backpack.

1. The boho type

Since I loved the confetti backpack from Zara, my first place to look for more cool styles was obviously zara.com… aaaand I found my favorite: boho print, pompons at front, tiny tassels on the sides, not boxy at all, very loose, very free! Even the price isn’t too bad, $35.90 USD.

3065106010_1_1_1.jpg2. The classic type

Found lovely backpacks in Lori Barcelona‘s Etsy shop as well. They are cotton made, handmade, a classic option to look slick and chic. This navy/stars model costs $34.52 USD.

il_570xN.764737856_4zz4

3. The glittery type

Looking for something to stand out from the crowd? Bakker has this beautiful silver glitter backpack, impossible to resist… A bit pricey though, $59.45 USD.

Screen shot 2016-03-22 at 16.32.27

4. The tutu-ish type

Want something to go along with your daughter love for dance, ballet and all that? Crewcuts from J.Crew got you covered with this tulle backpack in either classic ballet pink or navy, the only bad thing is that it’s just as pricey as the Bakker one, $59.50 USD.

Screen shot 2016-03-22 at 16.40.52

5. The metal type

Boldd Junior has these gold and silver mini backpacks, with just a few studs to get a more edgy look. They are $40 USD each.

Screen shot 2016-03-22 at 15.53.36

6. The “take me to the beach” type

Very breezy, very classic at the same time, this one yells beach now please! Perfect for sunny getaways, from Mamoo kids at $38 USD.

Denim on denim on ivi

Hello again! 

I gathered some sets to start using the Denim on Denim trend! It’s actually a classic, it appears from time to time through the seasons, But I saw it coming a bit strong in SS16 runways (Valentino, Chloe, Opening Ceremony)… So now that spring is almost here, this trend is perfect for spring beginnings!

Got baby ivi wearing a cute shirt dress from Old Navy, some denim leggings and those Converse sneakers she adores, take a look! 

   
 

Looking for this trend in my favorite e-shops, I found some great stuff! I came up with three great sets for three different ocassions!

Festival Vibe


   

Festival vibe: Chambray Henley tee from OshKosh, denim skirt from The Children’s Place, print tassel scarf from The Accessory Collective, lace-up sandals from River Island, reversible head wrap from Rhyla.

Just because our tiny ones don’t yet know  the line up of the next Coachela or ACL festival that doesn’t mean they can’t get the vibe! Mix denim tones and give a proper splash of color with this tassel scarf or even some sparkle with a headband!

(Follow this set in Polyvore)  

Strolling around in the city

 
Strolling around in the city: Denim shirt dress from River Island, denim jacket from baby Gap, Adidas Stan Smith sneakers, aviator sunglasses from J. Crew (crewcuts), star charm bracelet from Cara Couture, coral head wrap from Baby Bling.

I love wearing dresses with white sneakers, so I thought shouldn’t ivi try it too? This shirt dress from River Island is a great siluet with fresh sleeves, and you can mix up denim tones with a denim jacket ina darker colour …top it up with the most popular white sneakers nowadays (and available for infants, too!): Adidas Stan Smith sneakers and these super cool sunnies from Crewcuts… Awesome!

(Follow this set in Polyvore)  

A day at the beach

  
A day at the beach: Swimsuit from Ralph Lauren, denim shirt from Old Navy, denim shorts from Old Navy, gladiator sandals from River Island, aviator sunglasses from J. Crew (crewcuts), black head wrap from Baby Bling.

How versatile is the denim shirt! I love how it covers perfectly on a chilly afternoon or in this case to get with the perfect outfit to the beach. Denim shorts by the ocean are a must, a pair of gladiator sandals to fashion things up and these sunnies that complete beautifully any look!

That’s it for today, hope to write again soon!

Falling for ivi goes around: L. A.

Hi there!

Introducing the “Falling for ivi goes around” chapters! My first experience to share: L.A. 😉

Just went there this past Monday through Wednesday, with the main purpose of visiting the L.A. Textile show, it was pretty motivating! So many fabrics, so many textures and prints… Got a bunch of ideas to make right away, some others for this next Fall/Winter and tons of inspo for next Spring/Summer 2017, can’t wait to show you!

  
 Also got the opportunity to wander a bit around, I’ve only been in L.A. for work so I thought why not going all touristic this time? And so I did! Downtown, Venice beach, Hollywood, I saw a bit of many of this great city’s neighborhoods!

  While going down Abbot Kinney blvd in Venice Beach I found a kinda quirky little store of children clothing, named Burro… Unfortunately I went there at night so of course it was closed haha either way I won’t loose their track!

 

One thing I always do in eeeevery trip is buying clothes for ivi 😀 …I discovered two brands both cute and different from the normal proposal I’m used to find in big brands: Tucker and Tate and Peek… I like their twist in regular clothes, the softness of the materials they use, and how they help me dress my girl a bit less “dolly” and a lot more cool! I also found a yellow trouser from deux par deux, and you guys know how I am all into yellow, so of course I got it! Here are some of my finds:

   
    
 

That’s it guys, a tiny taste of what L.A. was for me! I got tons of pics and experiences but I think this post would become endless haha see you pronto!
