Happy Tuesday, everyone! I’m sharing pictures today from the Marimekko event I hosted last weekend in Palo Alto. We celebrated the launch of their Kids’s Spring/Summer 2014 Collection by having a “Mommy & Me” fashion show, and it was SO MUCH FUN! I invited my friends and their adorable kids to be part of the show. They all looked super adorable and stylish in Marimekko and I couldn’t be happier that they were all there to join me!

Marimekko’s fun prints and colorful patterns have always been one of my favorites, and it’s only natural that it would carry well into their children’s line. The line consists of all of their classic stripes, dots, florals, and geometric prints. You can find them in fun shirts, trousers, dresses and raincoats for newborns all the way up to 6 year olds. It’s all about encouraging the little ones to mix and match and cherish the creativity that they have. Hayden at the age of 3 began to have a preference of what she wanted to wear, and this is such a good collection for her to mix & match however she wants ~ without looking ridiculous. You know what I mean, mommies? :) And I love how nicely the women’s collection coordinates with the kids collection too!
There were sweet treats and face painting to entertain the little ones while the parents browsed through the store. We ran our fashion show every 30 mins and it was so nice to see a new crowd every time. The best part was that people were picking up a few goodies from Marimekko too. Seriously, who can resist not buying anything from there when you walk out of that store?!

some, I mean, a lot of “behind-the-scenes” shots from my iPhone. I was really tempted to share them all on Instagram! :)
Many thanks again to all who came out on Saturday! It was really a blast and an honor for me to host for an incredible brand I admire so much! The team there is absolutely welcoming and helpful too. Don’t forget to visit Marimekko next time you take a trip to the Stanford Shopping Center in Palo Alto! :)
Have a great week and see you back here soon! xo Jeanne
