Scandi Style - Hello Moose
The redforgirls household is a slightly Scandinavian mad. Way before Lund and her jumpers or Lisabeth Salander and her tattoos we've been into all things Scandinavian with a particular thing for the Swedish side of things. And I don't just mean the meatballs at Ikea.
Scandi kids clothes strike the perfect balance of being colorful, practical and fun. I can't get enough of them but more often than not you can only find then in independent stores in random parts of the UK.'Next to Nothing' in the Oxford covered market (but it's long way to go for a 74cms of material) or nearer to home Cowboys 'n' Angels in West Kirby. So once again I turn to the tinternet.
Contrary to popular belief there has been some growing going on in the redforgirls household and I don't mean my waistline. Our 'dot' has increasingly found her feet round her ears when
popper-ed into her sleep suits, so I went hunting for something a bit more interesting than the supermarket pack or three suits we have a draw full of. You know the 'nice suit' you take away with you to a friends when you are make an effort. 'This old thing'?!
'Forget traditional -Think Unisex' - with that slogan I was always going to LOVE Hei Moose. Their funky nordic clothes for babies and toddler can't fail to make you smile. I couldn't resist this Duns Sweden Garden Romper in their sale. It arrived in just two days and even came with a moomin sticker (Don't get me started - I'm so easily pleased). No one is going to miss my girl in this.
For more scandi inspiration check out some more of my favourites:
