Winter Break is ripe for the picking..
We found a place where our kids could roam free and explore the most magical gardens, in the coastal seaside hamlet of Barwon Heads. Known as the 'Village By The Sea', and famed for the quirky Australian TV series 'Seachange', the area is renowned for it's beautiful beaches, bridge and riverside, but we stumbled across a gem known as the Barwon Heads Community Gardens.
Plots of vegetables, herbs and berries abound, with a hot house full of tomatoes and orchards with all manner of citrus. The combination of edible gardens and sculptural art installations everywhere made for a great morning through the eyes of our children and our lenses. We hope you enjoy...
Here's a first! Our mamma leggings are for the inner 'mini-me' enthusiast! Exclusively for Winter Break as a Mother's Day special, they are perfect for twinning mini-me style with your little one. Yes, they have a Tummy Toastie for maximum comfort, and self-fabric cuffs that can be rolled up or down according to your height. Sizes: Small (8-10), Medium (10-12), Large (12-14), X-Large (14-16).
We're all for mums n' bubs.
This was the first time this lil' cherub had ever picked fresh herbs from the garden... It was magical to watch Bursting Blooms L/S Tee and Weekend Away Skirt delight in the texture, smell and taste of fresh parsley and mint, with her mum announcing she would "plant a herb garden this weekend!"
In the midst of mermaids, the munchkins explore their world with curiosity and newfound independence.
The joy of finding ripe goodies! Highlighter L/S T Shirt picked her weight in fruit n' veg this morning!

Revealing the details of our exciting new Sunday Stroll Pinafore Dress! Designed and Made in Australia, this piece combines hardwearing stretch indigo denim with stunning Asian-inspired linen cotton floral. Catching glimpses of the bright pops of colour in the godet panels (inverted pleats at the back), is like that moment when you spy vibrant rosella's in the top of a gum tree during a sunday stroll; they just make you smile.
The front features a bib with button closures, gathering on the skirt, and pockets for storing treasures. The waistband is elasticised at the back to create a snug fit, and the peekaboo godet panels are a design highlight.
We are loving the With The Band Super Skinny Jeans with contrast inky geo printed fabric pocket details. The steely blue colour with black feathered arrow print is a match made in heaven.
Mia Sweater Dress - we. love. you.
The team take a stroll in front of the Community Wall.
Beautiful fabrics and details in the Mia Sweater Dress include a navy pinstripe body, with rose printed stash pockets, and calypso pink and grey marle neck and hem bands. The textured sleeves with reverse fabric cuffs are gorgeous, and the inset side panels are made from pixelated floral fabric with hints of cornflour blue.
Our new pinny is incredible on all ages, from 3-6mths old to the largest size in 7-8yrs. Layer it up for winter wear, or pack it for sunnier climates for a winter holiday escape.
Snug as a bug in his Toshi beanie and super cosy, soft Oishi-m fabrics. Our Walk The Plank L/S T Shirt is made from heavierweight french terry for days when a T Shirt isn't enough, but a jumper is too heavy. Not too cold, not too hot, it's juuuuuust right ;)
We reckon tooshes look pretty cute in Oishi-m leggings. The Clear Directions Legging yardage is an Oishi-m designed artwork, inspired by feathered arrows. This black repeat pattern works a treat on the slate marle base fabric, and is punctuated with a bright olive Tummy Toastie and triangle bottom panel.
Dahlia's of every colour grow were in bloom, with this lil' cherub stopping to smell each bloom. Special moments captured on a sunny winter's morning, wearing the Highlighter L/S T Shirt and Acorn Beanie.
