bitsy favorite for the itsy…MOTORETA!

It was love at first sight.

A stunning brand named Motoreta came into our lives not too long ago and we can’t get enough. The sophisticated yet playful flow of both design + architecture had us at “hello”. We’ve featured them before, but wanted to take an opportunity to single them out for their amazing-ness. Please let us introduce you to our obsession…

These are a few pieces from Motoreta’s Autumn/Winter 2014 Collection. “The Kids Are Alright” assortment was inspired to protect our little ones from the cold by using “cold colors” such as grey, black, dark brown + denim wrap on the outside of the garments. Then in the inside they added colors that “kid’s dreams are made of” such as yellow, pink, water blue + green. Who can resist?!

Motoreta is a team of 2 architects – Cristina + Maria – with a very acute sense of fashion design. The two team up every season to pull inspiration from art, song, colors + the place where they live (Seville, Spain – yes, please!!). Their concept from inception has been “think global, produce local” and their “slow life philosophy” shines through their incredible creations for our younger generation. The intricacy in each piece proves that they place much emphasis on creating their own brand + lifestyle. We hope you jump for joy as much as we have when looking at the creations this dynamic duo has produced!

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

I (along with anyone who knows me well) consider myself a “Type A” personality.  I am always planning ahead and checking things off my list.  However, I find that keeping up with my daughter Lucy’s wardrobe has challenged me over the past 2 years.  We are extremely lucky to not only inherit hand-me-downs from my 3 stylish nieces, but also receive a slew of vintage hand-me-downs from my Mother and Aunts.  My Mom, God bless her, saved a lot of our significant pieces – sailor-style dresses from England, “Fieldston Man Tailored” wool dress coats, “Zips” sneakers, “Osh Kosh B’Gosh” over-all jumpers and pants.  The list goes on and on! These inheritances have sometimes allowed me to neglect purchasing some of the vital pieces Lucy may need season-to-season – for example, sweaters for the wintertime.  Even though my Mom saved quite a few of mine, Lucy has needed some versatile day-to-day options that will carry her wardrobe through to the next (in this case, warmer) season. Sweaters she can be “Lucy” in that will give her a stylish look all at the same time.

 Lucy received many incredible gifts when she was first born, but one of my most favorite packages was from Petit Bateau (love from a close friend). Before I even opened the box I knew I would adore what was inside.  Petit Bateau has always been a favorite brand of mine – for myself and for children.  They pride themselves on timeless, unique style and high quality wear. One of the pieces inside the box was a beautiful wool cardigan in a putty color.  This was an extremely generous gift, but I must say that Lucy wore it the most out of any of her other clothing (so worth every penny!).  She sported it for 2 years (I just had to put it in a storage bin!) and it really was a staple in her wardrobe . I paired it with jeans/cords, as a jacket on milder days, skirts, over dresses, you name it.

Here are some sweater picks that might help your child get through these next cold months.  They can play a key role in their day-to-day active wear or act as a cozy, yet dressy option with jeans/cords/woolies/leggings/dresses/skirts on a blustery day.  Most of these options can be considered unisex…

a. petit bateau girl’s wool and cotton cable knit cardigan, $92-

b. polarn o. pyret shawl neck button sweater, $49.50

c. caramel baby & child sherbourne merino wool cardigan, $137.74

d. frankie & ava hand knitted cable cardigan, $98-

e. frankie & ava hand knitted peacoat, $124-

f. nico-nico amp pullover, $172-

g. h&m boys knit cardigan (cotton & wool blend), $24.95

h. mini bamba apparel shawl sweater, $24-

i. noro paris andre cardigan, $56.33

(side note: I’m not one to spring for luxury when it comes to my 2-year old’s sweater selection, but the higher-quality options can be put to great use and eventually be handed down.)
