Fun Fridays!

Fridays is mummy day.
I work at the Hospital on Tuesdays and Thursdays,
Amalia is in kindy Monday to Thursday, and Daddy is home on the weekends.
So on Friday, I plan for fun and games.
I generally don't get work done, unless i get both kids down for a sleep late in the arvo.
We start with swimming lessons in the morning, and then usually morning tea at
Ally Break and a play at North Cronulla Park.
Due to the rain this week though, we decided to head up to Miranda Fair,
and have a good work out at the Soft Play centre.

To allow my kids to really be kids, our Free Range Clothing is designed for
rough and tumble play. Mali gives it a great work out here.

Today she is wearing our Rib Knit Rollover Neck Top in Squid Ink Black,

with our Rib Knit Leggings in Agave Green,

and we are featuring this gorgeous cord pinafore by designer Amanda Coffey

I purchased it at Allies Attic Boutique Kids Market. Its fantastic, because it is reversible, so we have two different looks. Plus it has been so well made, and nice and thick for winter.

yummmmmm mega choc chip muffin!

Taelan enjoyed moving the furniture around,
as he has started to learn how to walk along behind chairs and his push along toy.

He is such a funny little fella, his first theeth, the two front teeth, finally appeared
when he was 16 months of age, and now all of a sudden,
he has about 5 teeth coming through at once!

But he is always such a happy little chappy.

Later in the afternoon, we travelled to Balmain and met up with my gorgeous
friend Shea and her little man Koby (on a short trip home from NZ),
and her sister Perdy, with her little boy Eli.
Don't the colours in this dress just look stunning!
We had so many compliments throughout the day.

Mali and Koby always enjoy each other's company,
its a shame we have an ocean between us!

Happy Mummy Day!

Happy Mummy's Day to all the mummy's celebrating their wondrous achievement today!
Hope you are all being treated to something special.
For our family, it was breakfast at Ally Break by North Cronulla Beach.
The little man enjoyed the froth off daddy's cappucino.

Mali enjoyed her hot chocolate with Poppy and Great Nan.

My sister Loren, Mum and Me

And finished with a walk along the Esplanade and taking in the gorgeous views.
What a spectacular day!

Mali did a bit of modelling for me.
We love our Agave Green, on this occasion we have layered the Frill Sleeve Top over
a Hibiscus Red Rib Knit Rollover Neck Top. Paired with the leggings and a really
cute apple print skirt we picked up from designer Ally-Lou at the last Allies Attic
plus a pair of Red Lelli Kelly boots that we also picked up at Allies Attic!

Designed to Compliment.

So, we now have most of our new styles up on the web site for autumn/winter.

You may notice that we have taken a new direction. We will still offer our applique designs in limited styles, such as our Rise'n'Shine Rib Tanks and Long Shorts, and the Hearts'r'Hatching Sleeveless Tunic or Jersey Tee. However, we are now also offering a fantastic range of core basics.

I have always loved a bold printed fabric, and have picked up some gorgeous skirts and dresses from different designers, and at boutiques and markets. The problem I continued to encounter was finding a suitable top to match, something that was stylish, so didn't dull down the beauty of the printed piece, yet held a gorgeous colour to compliment it.

So, this is the motivation behind our new direction. We want to offer a one stop shop for boutique quality, super stylish basics, and have these styles available in a gorgeous variety of bright bold colours.

You will start to see a number of blog posts where we feature a
mix and match of Cheeky Chickies Free Range Clothing
complimenting some other great designer and indie labels.
The first two shots above feature Amalia wearing Cheeky Chickies Rib Knit Frill Sleeve Top and Rib Knit Leggings, both in Agave Green,
framing the gorgeous print skirt from Three Little Trees.
Little man Tae wears Cheeky Chickies Rib Knit Leggings in Ocean Blue,
with a pin tuck collared shirt from Eternal Creation.

And today we headed out to a local festival. Tae wears Cheeky Chickies Bubble Pants in Sunburnt Orange, and Mali wears the Agave Frill Sleeve Top again,
layered with another gorgeous piece from Three Little Trees.

A fun day was had all round!
