Though Wang’s Diego has basically become iconic, this season’s bucket bag offerings has me lusting something awful.  Neither too big nor too small it’s such a convenient shape; perfect to stuff full of your essentials and throw over your shoulder or rock cross body.

Though Mansur Gavriel is the name on every fashionista’s lips, there are a few more envy worthy pieces that will have you crushing.  Including some the Diego in some beautiful new colours.

Our friends and Toronto natives,  Ashley and Matt, aren’t only the most stunningly gorgeous couple, they are crazy talented.  Him, single handedly changing the fashion landscape in Toronto – Goodfoot, Nomad, Stussy.  Her, creating one of the first members only ‘culture clubs’ in Toronto called The Society – which eventually grew to include chapters in New York and Miami.

And now they bring us AKID.  After having a child of their own they saw a hole in the market for cool, functional kicks for kids.  They set to work on a line of shoes that are not only incredibly stylish but are complete with all of the things that are necessary to make our little ones comfy on their endless adventures.

-EVA sole, typically found in sports shoes- a great shock absorber.

- side zipper makes it easy (for Moms and Dads) to get the shoe on and off.

-no-slip rubber sole to keep them from falling (as much as possible)

Plus with a range of kick ass colours and prints they’ll leave you saying, why cant they be in my size?

 

H is particularly fond of the Jasper in Coloured Leopard

coachella

It’s Coachella this weekend and oh how I wish that I was there!  California, GirlTalk, Outcast, sunshine, the ability to wear tons of crochet and headbands with abandon AND a Ferris Wheel???  If any of you are there or are going, please enjoy for me!

Here are some of our fave links from this week:

Pretty and yummy!

I’m always down for some Matzo Ball soup so I’m very excited to try every place on the Best Matzo Ball Soup in NY list

I recently got these Nike pants and I can’t stop wearing them!

I love a girl with a good book shelf

Thursday Thought: Never Stop Learning

4/10/2014

adventure

 

I had lunch with a lovely new friend the other day and she reminded me of something:  never stop learning.  She had been retired for quite some time and in a little funk and it took her doing something completely opposite of what she thought she wanted – going back to work – to make her realize that a passion for doing something tangible was what she was truly missing.

Most of you aren’t retiring any time soon but what this talk made me realize is that many times we get caught up in the motions that we forget to include things in our lives that inspire us to grow.  In our over-scheduled, time constrained lives it can be extremely difficult to find time for one more thing but occasionally it takes a little reevaluation of priorities to make the things that matter fit.

For me doing the 30 Day Yoga Challenge gave me some time to think about what part of my life was making me feel a bit empty and I realized that I was feeling a bit stuck and a lot unlike my usual positive self.  So I decided, once again, to go back to school.  I hadn’t been taking classes since I went to NYU a few years back and I was quickly reminded that there’s something about the classroom setting, surrounded by people that are really invested in the subject matter that I find so encouraging.  Knowing that I find it difficult to go out and meet new people, being in a class with like minded people allows me to take down some barriers and open up.  It’s only one class just once a week but I find my interaction with my classmates teaches me something new every single time.

In today’s world where we talk through screens and emote through emoticons it’s nice to find ways to interact with real people, in real time.  The importance of gaining knowledge through perspective, especially a different one, is paramount to having a well rounded and interesting understanding of things.

This Spring let’s get out there and try some new things!  I took a dance class yesterday (I totally can’t dance) but I died laughing and met some cool people. I would even consider making a fool of myself and trying it again.

Maybe it’s traveling alone, or learning how to knit, or garden?  But whatever it is, let me know what you’re thinking of trying and give me a little inspiration for my next little journey.

xxo,
