Fall Feature | Carbon Soldier

 

Happy Fall good people! Hope everyone had an amazing Halloween!  I know its been a few since our last fashion post but we have been taking it slow and just enjoying life. Mr.P and I are so excited for all the fall vibes we’ve been getting in the ATL recently!

Our style dreams came true when this gorgeous set arrived from New Zealand brand Carbon Soldier. We have loved their designs for some time now and thought this would be the perfect ensemble for P to rock to celebrate  the start of the fall season. I could totally see a stylish babe wearing this to a holiday party or dinner at the granparents paired with some cool knee socks or tights! The day of this shoot it had already turned a bit chilly so we paired this look with a cozy fur jacket from Plae Fur and these gorgeous boots from Italian brand Gallucci. This outfit totally gives me retro European proper school boy vibes. I imagine thats part of the aesthetic that Carbon Soldier’s creative director Barbara McCamish had when dreaming up this collection. Heirloom quality designs with a modern sensibility. While Mr.P and I love “streetwear” fashion, I have a soft spot for pieces that are more classic.

I often get asked if he enjoys our little fashion Adventures. Like “does he like taking photos”? He answers yes! He says that he likes doing photo shoots with his mom. We are all about hanging out , exploring our city and finding yummy things to eat! I think dressing up for him is really a way of expressing himself. His personality comes out and I think the interactions with admirers gives him more confidence. He was a little shy as a younger kid and I have seen how much he has come out of his shell. He has actually become a bit of a male diva! I think I’ve created a monster!

 

All in the details. Love the Sleeves on this Gorgeous Neapolitan Jacket.

Street Style Vibes || Featuring Loud Apparel

 

 

Happy Friday dear friends,

Hope you had a powerful week and have something amazing planned for the weekend. We are in full back to (home) school mode, and certainly welcome a chill’d laid back vibe for the weekend. Even when we are taking it easy we don’t skimp on style.  Our latest fashion crush for fresh street style is Uber cool brand Loud Apparel. If you are a fan of bold prints with a heavy dose of minimalistic Italian design then look no further.

This Uk brand distinguishes itself by  producing quality garments with exquisite craftsmanship and amazing attention to detail.

We are forever fans of this line and this season’s collection does not disappoint. For this dope street style look we chose the king hoodie and the scuffle cap which can be paired with many items in P’s fall wardrobe! Beyond being cool Loud Apparel will appeal to parents that demand quality garments that can be passed from sibling to sibling. Most items are totally unisex which I just love!

P of course loved that the hoodie was comfy to wear. Really thats what’s most important for me….. quality+comfort. This outfit was a real head turner, and many gown ups were showing him so much love!  I can’t help but smile as he has a style that is all his own, and it matches his fun personality…. ya know what I mean?

We paired the hoodie and cap with our gorgeous vegan pants from the beloved Aussie brand Eve jnr ( currently in heavy rotation) , and his favorite candy apple red D&G sneakers.

I can see these pieces being put to good use, the hoodie for instance layered under a denim or statement leather jacket…. you know how we get down eh? We are all ready for the cooler temps to come! Bring on fall!

Sending lots of love and light to the world, especially all those devastated by the recent hurricanes.

Summer Vibes | Circa 81 KIDS

Happy Monday!

Summertime is all the way here in Atlanta! Mister P has been enjoying the warm weather, playing outside with friends and endless ice pops and fruity drinks. As a parent the challenge of course is to keep the littles occupied and to try to keep them from saying that dreaded phrase “MOM I’M BORED”

We adore Atlanta and very soon I will do a post featuring all the fun things to do with the kidlets during the summer break. For now we are loving taking it slow and easy, reconnecting and of course doing it in style with new gear from Circa 81 Kids!

P and I chose this gorgeous outfit from Jean Bourget, which is super comfy and perfect for all of his summer adventures. The palm print shorts have a wonderful feel to them, very light and airy, which I love! We paired with the matching tee and of this cool cap from Stella Kids and sunnies from Sons+Daughters. 

I love fashion. There I said it and I am not ashamed. My mom was a fashion lover model /actress in the 70’s. We had Harpers Bazar, Vogue and Essence mags on the coffee table. Its in my blood, and while I realize that its not a life or death thing, Its importance in culture is undeniable. What P wears is not the most important of course. Raising a healthy ( in mind and body) young man is forever my number one goal. However by showing him the best, in what I can gives him a baseline standard. You cannot deny that when you look your best you not only feel better but you do better. Ok….. maybe not always, but its worth a shot right?

Circa 81 Kids carries an awesome selection of cool designer and luxury clothing and accessories for your babes! So loving having another dope shop to get P kitted out for summer. With brands like Someday Soon, Jean Bourget, and 3 Pommes you are sure to score the perfect look for your mini fashionistas.

Have a wonderful week friends and thank you all for popping by!

Much love

The Prince & the beach | Dirt and Noise

 

2017-03-17-15-53-40

I may have mentioned on the gram sometime ago that I was bi-coastal at one point in my life and had spent a few years living in a few different parts of California.  I really wanted the Prince to be able to connect with family and to see another part of the country so I decided to come to LA. It has been so wonderful to be in the sunshine and enjoy this special time with loved ones!

Spring time is here, which for many means getting out and doing more fun activities with your littles. We are enjoying our stay here in Cali, and we have finally made it to the BEACH!

I really wanted to take P to Venice beach as I have many memories visiting that beach as a teen. We headed to Santa Monica Pier instead, and I think I made a fab choice!

The weather was a bit chilly and the sky was overcast but we didn’t mind a bit. The crisp salty sea air was perfect, and the ocean was very calming to my spirit. For our beach adventure Mr.P wore some retro-Cali inspired pieces from the lovely children’s shop Dirt and Noise. They stock the coolest brands to keep your babes so fresh and so clean (Cue Andre 3000 tune).   I am always talking about kids fashion being mostly about function, but your babes have to look good too right?

What outfits do you like to dress your babes in for spring?

Until Next time

Raising Up A Gentleman // Boys to Men // Part I

2017-01-16-19-29-10

 

What is this thing call being a Mother? What does being a mother mean to you? Its not very often that I talk about my journey as a single parent. I intentionally leave it out of my social media feeds, as I assume that most people don’t care to hear about the trials and tribulations that come with the territory of parenting solo. I consequently mostly post about Mr.P’s fresh fashions and  good times, because thats really what we all want to see, amiright?

Truth be told, I do want to share more about what it means to me to be the mom of a little boy.

As Mr.P grows older my recent and most nagging anxieties are if I have the tools and resources to teach him HOW to be a man. I have read all the horrible statistics that say that boys raised without a man in the home are more likely to be incarcerated, and more likely to drop out of school. Sometimes I loose sleep at night and wonder what I was thinking when I said to the universe that I wanted to be a mother.

But then I do a T swift booty dance and shake off that negativity ! What the universe gave me is exactly what I wished for. I healthy baby boy who is growing up into a really awesome young man, a little Prince. He is kind and spunky, and treats others with respect. He is not a perfect child, nor am I a perfect mother, we are really works in progress. We take each day as a new opportunity to do it better than the day before. Our babes are watching us, they are soaking up all that they observe.

My wish for P is that he never sees his mom give up. We always keep it pushing. Here’s to raising up a gentleman, moreover here is to raising gentle-humans!

More on this topic in a future post. More mamas who are raising boys need to be heard. Lastly, what are some concerns you have about bringing up your little men? Even if you have a partner to share the load, I wanna hear from you!

Leave a comment and tell me what you think!

All our love

Keira+P

The Prince visits the Animal Sanctuary

2016-11-06-14-18-26-2

 

The Prince and I say happy fall to all of my northern hemisphere friends. Its been a really fun past couple of weeks enjoying all the beauty that Upstate NY has to offer. Sometimes the most beautiful things are not fancy at all. My sweet boy can find something interesting under a rock or a pile of leaves. We spent this particular fall day pretty much doing just that. Climbing, jumping, leaving no stone unturned. Not really concerned about time, holding space with nature and creating memories with my Prince. Our time together has been really special as I have decided to home -school. It gives us time to grow as mother and son, as well as strengthen our bond.

The Animal Sanctuary  was the perfect place to try out some new pieces from a few of our fav brands. Plae shoes is a brand that really makes some of the best kicks for kiddos. They are super durable and completely breathable which is so important during play. They are machine washable also! Total win! Love love!

He loves his oh so stylish baggy trousers from Kid+Kind and I love the mama who creates these wonderful pieces that allows your babes to have comfort and freedom of movement. I always say that fashion is not just about looking good. Function is just as important as form. I swear on my momma,  if its not comfy, not matter how dope it looks, the Prince is not having it!

We love the kids fashion world so much and want to showcase the best in kids fashion brands. The focus is that these brands allow kids to be who they are :Expressive, Creative, Curious, Fun and LOUD.

Hope everyone is well, and hope you enjoy our sweet forest adventure at the animal Sanctuary.

Much love x

K+P
