Finally we are out of hibernation friends. After a long, grey and cold winter I feel like with spring each year we become alive again. And this is the reason my blog has been on the hibernation leave for the whole winter too, haha. But in honest truth it’s also because since the kids started school this year, their social life took over and it’s been so hard for me to juggle it all. I always try and put their needs first, I want them to remember me as a present mom and not a workaholic mom that never had time for them. I am still not sure if I found the winning formula but trying everyday to do better is that one step closer to finding that perfect balance.
Now finally the spring is here and the kids will be off school for one long month, so we will have so much time to explore more and have fun activities during the Easter break. I cannot wait for the picnic season. The first blooms have been already showing off their beauty around London and last weekend we went for a little family brunch and walk around the ever so gorgeous Notting Hill. The kids dressed for the occasion in their new spring outfits from our all time favourite Italian brand Il Gufo. I am so proud of the pictures we took for this collaboration, I want to print them all . Riccardo especially loves posing for mommy and because the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree he totally inherited my fashion sense and the love for clothes.
And talking about love for clothes, IL Gufo spring summer 2019 it’s a beautiful combination of classic and casual marine looks with both a casual colourful feel and classic sophistication.
I went for a matching brother and sister look, loved a little pop of orange and the blue stripes. Perfect gender neutral colours and I think their outfits look beyond cool and adorable, I want them in my size please!
Riccardo wore also this cool jacket from their innovative Active Label capsule collection, made with patented Sensitive® Fabrics which is made especially keeping in mind the importance of functionality and comfort.
I absolute love the idea behind this initiative, comfort and practicality should always come first.
Here you will find last pictures we took this weekend and I am so in love with the results and how we brought to life the Il Gufo Nautical Adventures.
