Autumn is around the corner - Fall favorites from I Dig Denim AW16

For outfit details, please see bottom of this post.

It’s almost time for the big drum roll. Our favorite brand, all categories, is making its first drop any day now and we have been waiting not so patiently for this since spring. I know that a lot of you get all hyped up about the big brands like Bobo Choses and Mini Rodini but for me and the kid this is the most important collection of the season. And I just can’t rave enough about I Dig Denim’s AW16. It is amazing. I mean it.

You have seen their denim shirt Zoe already and during summer I pulled together several photo-shoots to cover a large part of the remaining collection. But however many photos I take, I still feel as if I could show you more. AW16 is a pretty big collection and the combination of outfits are endless, it seems. So this post will be a pre-taste, so to speak. A glimpse of just how amazing this brand is by showing you an outfit that works during early- and mid autumn. And then in a couple of days I'll be back with part 2 on the Free and Wild Child Blog, which will contain the new fantastic winter parka for example and the mustard yellow beanie, Zion.

For now, all the photos in this post are shot in July but humor me and pretend that it’s on a cold day of autumn instead. One with the earthy scent of autumn leaves and with winds that nip at your nose. See, I am one of those weird people that actually love the fall-season with all its knits, beanies and scarves. High summer is glorious in so many ways but when you love fashion the warm weather is kind of limiting since half the time you only wear swimwear or shorts.

I have to tell you that I Dig Denim has outdone themselves with the knits this season. My personal favorites are probably Greta, the charcoal grey cardigan in this post, and the black Rufus beanie which is just so soft and has an absolutely perfect fit. (I am also in love with the off-white cable knitted sweater that I’ll be showing you in the next post.)

I have almost too many favorites and, as always, the items all work together seamlessly. Overall, I dig denim’s fall/winter range is mostly different shades of grey and black with a few accentual colors. For those of you who have been waiting for darker blue Arizonas, the wait is over. Also; make sure to look for “Bruce”, the skinny jeans. They are golden, I tell you!

From what I’ve seen, the collection seems to be equal to the past ones size-wise which means that it is relatively true to size. But I always recommend to size up if you are in between sizes. Better with a little room to grow, right?

I could go on and on about every piece in this fall-line but I am going to shut up and let the photos talk for themselves. Just one last thing; For every collection, I dig denim’s aim of an all friendly-made production is set higher and higher. All of I dig denim’s products are produced under high requirements ensured by the producers and partners they collaborate with. And the brand maintains a continuous dialogue with their suppliers to ensure that they are committed to rigorous standards regarding working conditions and ethical responsibilities. The producers ensure that the production lives up to high requirements and audit that it takes place under good working conditions. You can read their Code of Conduct here. I have been a big fan of this brand for a long time now and I must say that I am very proud of this progress. Go I Dig Denim!

Tiny Cottons AW16 - Face Your Faces // A collection about feelings

Are you excited? One more sleep, then it is finally here - the longed for autumn/winter collection from Tiny Cottons!

Set to launch on July 26th, the drop falls right in the middle of all the other brands - but boy, does it stand out. "Face Your Faces" is an amazing collection, all about emotions and their different faces. And Tiny Cottons have done a great job exploring the graphic world of feelings. The patterns and prints are playful, full of character and with that extra twist that I love from a kids fashion brand and every item is thought through and functional while keeping that stylish edge. Most important of all; it is still friendly made in organic cotton and merino wool.

Now, I'm not going to pretend that these photos come from a real outing because, lets be honest, it is July in Stockholm and we've had temperatures close to 30 degrees celsius this week. But on a cloudy and less warm day, me and fellow insta-mom Erica took the boys on an adventure in the forrest and while there we took the opportunity to snap a few photos of the coveted collection. My personal favorites are the genie and scarf with hands but grid pattern items in red and orange tones are also gorgeous. It's funny how nearly every sneak peek I've seen so far is putting the light tones and the monochrome front and center. Why? We've seen that before, haven't we? Both from Tiny Cottons and from basically every other brand out there. I feel like 2015/2016 has been one very long monochrome-fest and what I really love about the fall collection from Tiny Cottons are the colors! So we decided to mix it up with some of the more colorful pieces. Now have a look for yourself and tell me what you think:
