It’s a yucky time of year. Summer is equally as far behind us, as ahead of us. And it is cold. So cold. And bleak. Like ugh. I totally get why it’s now people either get busy booking summer holidays or topping themselves. So for this, I would like to be of assistance.
Switch that baby brain on and cast your mind back to those heady days of summer. Remember – the warm breeze, brushing against your tanned, toned skin? OK – my baby brain took me into Kate Moss’ body – I’ll correct that – remember the warmth of the sun on your skin? The sand, the sea, the s…..creaming kids?
Well, today whilst we can’t make the sun warm and shine BUT we can give you some great style tips for next summer. That’s because today, we interview Heidi Gosman from heidi klein and let me tell you – she OWNS summer holiday style!
In 2002 Heidi Gosman and Penny Klein launched heidi klein one stop holiday shop in London’s Westbourne Grove. From this, they have grown to a second store and a super successful own-brand that sells in over 150 stores in 39 countries globally. Celebrity fans include Kate Moss, Olivia Palermo and Jennifer Aniston. And crucially, for us Kid Style Junkies, last year, they launched a collection for girls age 2-12Y and now, they have launched a line for boys – which takes inspiration from classic all American resorts such as Key West, Newport Beach, Long Island, and Cape Cod.
It’s almost summer holiday time. One of my holiday pet hates – and to be fair, one of my kids’ too – is the lotion application situation. P.A.I.N.F.U.L. but of course, so necessary. So I’m not sure why, but I’ve never really got involved with UV Protective swimwear for my kids. I’m like – MEH, until now….
I bring you Sand Dollar Swim. Maureen Dolan is CEO and Founder. Having had a few dodgy moles removed, as a mother of 4 children she wanted her kids protected in the sun but for them to still to look rocking.
When I think of watermelon, I think summer days, pips and juice dribbling down my chin. Oh and of course Dirty Dancing, and giving birth. But I digress..I give you my juicy pick of watermelon inspired kids clothing and decor for SS15 that won’t make you all sticky.
First up, one of my fruit favourites is this watermelon cushion from Colette Bream at Scandi Mini £39
