Summer is on its way and with each warm day I get more and more accepting of the change of weather and wardrobes. I myself prefer the cooler days with layers and jackets but how can I refuse summer days when we live down the end of the street from the beach. Summer days with the babies bring holidays and long days just taking in everything that summer has to offer.

This months Uniqlo edit introduces the staples we will have on rotation with the perfect denim shorts and white twin sets. Just returning from or European vacation with a week in Paris we made sure that Disney was on the agenda for Mimi because if you are going to do it, do it well right?! And where better to do Disney than France.

On the trip and as Milla now gets older I am teaching her about fashion and style but not by the way we dress and what kind of things we buy but the history of the woman and people behind a brand and Icons that made fashion and trends as we know them now. Trailblazers in their lives. Individual and creative. Coco Chanel, Audrey Hepburn, Minnie Mouse. The polka dot print made it to pop culture with help from Minnie Mouse and 80 or so years later the brand and style is still going strong.

Fittingly for us returning from out trip the fabulous Designer Olympia Le-Tan collaborated with Uniqlo (an Icon of their own) on a new collection ‘Minnie loves Dots’  paying tribute to the polka dot and Miss Minnie Mouse. Olympia, London born and raised in Paris started her self taught career at the Chanel design studio with Karl Largerfeld then onto Balmain with Gilles Dufour. Her quirky and now signature style handbags bring an eclectic mix of London and Paris together.
