…Australian shoe brand Hobes. Founder Georgia Hobart developed footwear that offers wardrobe staples with longevity. These shoes are handmade, unisex, and ultra lightweight. Hobes are constructed from traditional Italian techniques, using quality, soft natural fibres and they’ll go with just about anything. I just adore these shoes and wish I had them in every color. And don’t get me started on how cute the kids ones are.

Stan Smith Sneakers


April 22nd 2015

I am so happy about this latest footwear trend! Stan Smith sneakers by Adidas (named after an American tennis champ) have been making a big comeback over the past few years and it seems as though just about everyone is sporting them this Spring. I’ve always had a fondness for these shoes, which Adidas first introduced in 1971, because my late grandfather wore them throughout my childhood. I am planning on buying myself a pair this summer because they go with just about everything. I especially love how they look with a maxi dress or distressed boyfriend jeans.

…July backpacks by Mat & Nat, made of vegan leather with an inner lining made of 100% recycled bottles. I am considering one of these as an alternative to the standard diaper bag.

Bellemine, a small independent Montreal brand that creates products that combine artwork and practicality. They turn whimsical illustrations into thermo-adhesive, easy to apply patches to restore or embellish clothes and accessories. “As parents we know how quickly clothing gets worn and at Bellemine we’re also very conscious of the amount of lightly used clothing that is thrown away, (in Québec it’s an average of 9kg per person, per year!). The patches are our way of treading a little more lightly, by encouraging people to mend and use their clothes a little longer in a way that’s fun.” I love the idea of adding one of these to a really plain shirt you bought at some big box store or to an old hand-me-down in need of an update.
