the stylo post

So this was kind of a huge deal for me: I have a little spread in the new issue of STYLO along side some of my favorite children clothing makers and designers.
The looks that I contributed reflected what I love most this time of year- hiking and insanely cute outerwear. We live walking distance to a sprawling reservation and autumn is such a beautiful and vibrant time to enjoy the trails. For chilly hikes I put together these two looks: Phia's is much more whimsical while Ori's has a utilitarian feel to it.

 I made all the pieces that the kids are wearing, but I really wanted the focus to be on their coats. On cold days that's really the only layer showing, right?


Spruce Herringbone Wool School Days Jacket by Oliver + S
Gray Italian Denim Small Fry Skinny Jeans by Titchy Threads 
Chambray Pullover by Blank Slate Patterns
 

Tan Wool Nituna Jacket by Figgy’s Patterns
Thistle Ayashe Tunic by Figgy’s Patterns
Ponte Knit Capris drafted from Small Fry Skinny Jeans

Most of the fabrics used are available from Michael Levine Fabrics, one of my favorite fabric sources, who also happens to be offering a special STYLO discount. Check out their incredible selection and then use the code “STYLO10″ at checkout for 10% off your entire order.  

Major thanks to the STYLO duo Jessica & Celina- I am still so honored to have been a part of this issue as this was such a wonderful reason to jump on the sewing machine.


So, go swoon over STYLO & get inspired.

Both looks are beautiful Lindsay! Love how you tied the boy and girl together with the shirt and coat detailing. I can't get enough of your son's coat, color, style, everything. Utilitarian yes, but so gorgeous.
