Fall, my favorite season of all! And my love for Scandinavia. When my two oldest daughters (I have four) were born, we lived in the Danish countryside where my husband is from. The time we spent in Scandinavia changed my style for the better—the beautiful nature, and such amazing design everywhere we looked.
I would say cheerful, genuine, and versatile. From the bold red floral to the more discrete tiny foxes, my hope is you can find a bow that both you and your little one find fun to complement her fall outfits.
Please don't make me pick one!!! I am so excited to see our popular Scandinavian flowers print back in mustard (my favorite color) for this collection, but I have a crush on the red floral. It can turn a really simple outfit into something special! My two-year-old's favorite is the fox print—and I love how you can literally pair that one with anything!
The red floral has bits of green, pink, mustard yellow, navy and rust orange in it, so you can pair it with a lot of things—from jeans and a cardigan to a simple little dress. I love letting my girls' curls loose and twisting a couple strands of hair back to secure with a bow. For the holidays, we'll probably do some fun braided hairstyle and use the bow as an accent.
I think about half of my girls closet is Alice and Ames dresses. Seriously. We own other dresses, but these are literally all my girls want to wear, and I love them too! They are so pretty yet comfy for them to play in!
My kids are happiest picking up sticks and stones in the woods, being told tales by the fire pit while roasting marshmallows. Lots of hikes, and camping. Regardless of the place or the weather. Danes always joke that there is not bad weather, there are only bad clothes. My husband also jokes that it builds character. 😊
We are planning a bunch of trips to Lake Tahoe, so that means tons of hiking coming up—and skiing too if the snow is good this winter in California! We'll also go back and see family in France (where I am from) and Denmark, and we always look forward to making more memories with our family there!
It's that time of year again, and packaging up hundreds of holiday bows with tinsel and candy canes has me in true Christmas shopping mode! We moms know there aren't enough hours in a day, but luckily there are so many mazing small shops that make holiday shopping easy, fun, and in some cases, life changing. So with that, here's a shopping guide of some of my favorite products to match the free spirit of your adventerous little one.
It's not quite the most wonderful time of the year just yet, but I still am so excited to share our Holiday collection with all of you! Once again the Free Babes Squad and I ventured into the Colorado mountains to capture the sweetest of holiday looks to pair with our luxe velvet, lumberjack plaid, and classic satin bows. I am particularly excited to introduce the velvet bows because we have never done anything like them before. These heirloom pieces were definitely the most time consuming and detailed bow we have ever made, but they turned out beautiful and were totally worth it.
Even though classic bows are always in season, our new Fall Collection was designed specifically to pair with the rich tones of changing leaves and crisp autumn air. To welcome the season of pumpkin picking, cider making and leaf collecting, we've selected pieces from our favorite brands for all your little free spirit's Fall adventures. Enjoy!
