Back to school

Just before kids are back to school to start a new school year, here is an eclectic selection of clothing, bags, furniture, and other items for the school and home. A selection for kindergarten, primary and high school. On the homepage : Zara kids dress, Minnetonka shoes, Fanny and Alexander schoolbag. *** OUTFIT FOR THE D-DAY BOY Gingham Kurta by Louis Louise : simply perfect… Hoody by  ABC123me, : this British brand dedicated to boys is always a must!

Splash mood

Last week, I wanted to write a culture post about the  The Great Animal Orchestra exhibition currently taking place at the Cartier Foundation … Unfortunately, due to wifi problems, I had to give it up. All my apologies ! But the only thing I could say now is that you should go and see this exhibition dealing with animals, their voice and, more broadly, with the place of human being in Nature. A beautiful moment to share with your kids to talk about environment and animal  protection. The exhibition runs until January 8,…

Summer vibes

Summer is theoretically here (yay … even if we still need some prooves, here, in Paris) and we’re dreaming  of sunshine and swimming, grilled food and complete salads, relaxation and excursions … I have, of course, not yet packed our bags as holidays are into two weeks and a half, but here’s a very eclectic selection of what I would take with me during Summer holidays … The list is varied, but not complete at all! It goes from super swimsuit to restorative cream,…

Vintage mood

I’ve always been a big fan of vintage furniture which is almost everywhere at home : great design, quality, durable and much less polluting materials than new furniture … and the price is often quite affordable. Perfect when you have three children! While I was seeking nice furniture for my daughter, I met Coralie, one year ago. I was immediately charmed by Chahut Bahut, the brand that this mother of three created in 2013. Coralie, who’s been bargaing-hunting since childhood, selects iconic or rare pieces : desks, nightstands, dressers, but…

Father’s Day gift list

In France, Father’s Day will be into 10 days and it’s not that easy to find a gift for dads indeed, don’t you think? No flowers, nor sweets  like for us… So, with the kids, we brainstormed a lot and listed here many different kinds of potential gifts to offer to a Dad… From magazines to a pair of shorts, the selection is quite large, indeed! I hope you’ll enjoy it! *** Thin stripes beach shorts by  Rag and Bones : straight cut, light fabric…

Mother’s Day Wish List

This coming Sunday is Mother’s Day in France ! So here is a selection of the 10 things I’d like to receive on this special day, as my husband asked me 😉 … I’ve listed many different things, from books to jewels and beauty care products… Even if it’s not Mother’s Day for you, I hope this list will inspire you. *** 1.Golden chain with personalised medal (you can write your kids’name on it) by The Marceline Paris. Gold or silver -plated. Sooo lovely!…

Petit Bec, a joyful and impertinent brand for toddlers

I’ve fallen in love with a new French toddlers’ brand created by a young mother, Olivia : Petit Bec (0-3 years). The young Parisian designer gives a vision of childhood that is both timeless and lively : classic,  comfortable and easy-to-wear clothes, with which you can play easily. Olivia was inspired by her own childhood on Petit Bec beach in L’ile-de-Ré and by her life as a  mum of three children : the universe is personal, joyful, humorous, a bit nostalgic … and that’s…

Summer shoes selection

May typically marks the arrival of sandals and summer shoes for our kids. While I’m going all over shops and sites for my kids, here’s my short list for boys and girls. I also added a mini sélection for babies and toddlers 😉 … All the shoes I show here are fashionablee, easy to wear and resistant to water and other summer activities … Some are cheap, other are rather expensive. The selection is not very long, but feel free to visit each of the presented…

Spring wardrobe

The first really warm sunshine finally pointed its nose this weekend … The opportunity to get out Spring kids clothes and to dream a little about  pretty new kids’ fashion. Here is a selection for boys, girls and babies. Small designers and big chains … Always in Sweet Cabane’s style : bohemian and chic, a bit vintage … BABY 1. Cotton dress by Zara Kids… I just want the same one for me! 2. Mint washed linen romper by Mabo kids. Sooo cute! from 3 months to…

Nantes Spring

To start ou series of spring posts on Sweet Cabane, I’d liked to introduce you to a very cool brand for children created in 2014 by two young mothers from Nantes: Lililotte Nantes. Charlotte and Nathalie design biological clothes that are both chic and practical. They play on bright colors and modern prints to twist rather classic cuts. Just beautiful! Clothes are designed in France and manufactured in India. They are all certified by GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard), a standard that defines high environmental…
