I Dig Denim // It's still pure love

Or better known as; "When Spring Collections Are Dropping And You're Still In Love With The Winter-Stuff"

Did you know that January usually is the harshest winter month in Sweden? Usually we have plenty of snow, cold winds and at least a temperature of -6 celsius. I say usually because this year the weather rollercoaster is ridiculous. Some days we have snowstorms and freezing temperatures and then other days, like today, it's sunny, snow free and over five degrees warm.

Don't get me wrong, I love snow and all that comes with it, but fashion-wise it usually means three months of the kid wearing a snowsuit and not much variation. The best part with days like today (other than the vitamin D-boost) is the opportunity to re-use the fall wardrobe. The sneakers come out of the closet and with them, loads and loads of denim. Those of you who have followed us since the beginning already know what our go-to brand for jeans is but it is worth repeating; I Dig Denim!

The spring stuff from that same favorite brand is literally just around the corner but before we present our ss17 favorites I'd love to recap the amazingness that is their fall/winter -16 collection. So many perfect items came this past fall and now a lot of them are on sale. For us Swedes (or pretty much all of us living in the northern hemisphere) this is very good news. Winter will last for several months yet before we'll get weather that will be even remotely summer-like. We are definitely still in knitted sweater mode over here and the ones from IDD this fall are just as perfect for early spring. The same goes with jeans because honestly; you can never have too many. Especially if you are an active kid that runs, climbs and grows like weeds.

So heres my suggestion; after you've checked out these photos filled with I Dig Denims fall/winter goodness, make sure to go over to their website and check out their ongoing sale. There are still some great things in stock there.

And sooner than you think the kid and I will be back with I Dig Denim's fantastic spring/summer line-up.

Keep having a great weekend, people!

(and for those of you who had the displeasure of getting a new president yesterday: we feel your heartache. Don't forget that love conquers all and that we are thinking about you in this mess. #womensmarch happened here in Sweden as well and there are a lot of Europeans on your side.)

Great news! As of today I am the newest contributor to the Free and Wild Child blog! I am so excited about this collaboration because this blog has been in my favorites list for ever and ever. Karianne and the other bloggers over there do amazing things and their resources on ethically made kids-fashion are endless. Me and the kid feel like we'll be in very good company and we can't wait to get to work on more editorials for www.freeandwildchild.com.

In the premiere blog post we've brought them some grafitti sightings from our neighborhood and of course a bunch of spring news from I Dig Denim. Go over there and check out the rest of the photos at:
