  Ahh, Summer is in the air and we can definitely feel it here in Southern California! Of course this means that it's time to stock up on swimsuits for our little ones. We were introduced to the super adorable "We Roam" line recently and fell in love with their sweet suits. 

Based in Australia, We Roam is owned by a sun, sea and surf loving couple. Their suits are ethically made from top notch, globally sourced fabrics that offer the highest sun protection available. Each piece is designed in Australia in collaboration with talented, local artists who exclusively hand paint their designs. Amazing!

Papallou | @Amelia_Hambrook

Megan Sanderson2 Comments

Papallou is a vintage inspired children's brand with a focus on creating clothes for girls ages 3-12 with a minimalist chic and vintage twist.

Founded by Miriam Mandel (mom and aspiring fashion designer) in 2016, each style is designed to be beautiful for moms to fall in love with and make every little girl feel special, and at the same time still comfortable and fluid enough for kids to run around and be playful.

The concept behind their SS17 Collection and photoshoot is that of every mom's daily struggle; of Love & War

They understand that dressing a small (or big) child is not always an easy task and choosing the right outfit that everyone can agree on can turn morning routines into endless battles.

With their SS17 collection it need not be survival of the fittest. Papallou once again proposes a peace offering. Moms get the quality and style they are so proud to see their kids dresses in. Girls get soft comfortable clothing for exploring, creating and enjoying life's adventures, so love can prevail
