On the ‘mono’ rail or riding a rainbow of colour?

As soon as Millie entered the world, she became my Little Miss Pink.

Pale pink swaddles, pink printed onesies, musk baby moccs and pastel pink dresses. I love pink on baby girls.

But as she has grown (*sob*), I’ve embraced a rainbow of colours and also the monochrome trend that’s so popular with many children’s labels right now.

Her drawers are still filled with splashes of pink, but now sit alongside a mix of brights and stylish black, grey and white.

Below is a pick of some of Millie’s favourite labels and the pieces that scream ‘colour me happy!’ or best show off monochromatic magnificence.

Local Label Love: Little Wild Things T

It’s a new Melbourne fashion brand for kids with designer prints and styles mixing up a wardrobe basic. But Little Wild Things T is anything but simple.

Label: Little Wild Things T

Where are you based? Hawthorn, Melbourne, Australia

What’s your background? Jacqui, a mother of three (4yo boy and almost 2yo twin girls) worked for 8 years as a senior buyer and designer for Myer’s Miss Shop then for Forever New. Charlotte – who has being a mum on her ‘to do list’ but for now is an unreal aunty – started her career working for Burberry in London and then became a senior buyer for Sportsgirl for over seven years. We are not just friends but also sister-in-laws, we live next door to each and both have our fashion backgrounds so having a label together happened quite naturally.
