hawaiian style.

My head is still in Hawaii. I’ve been home for a week now, but am having a tough time adjusting back to freezing temps…brr…

Just one more find from Hawaii for you…I found the cutest shop in one of my favorite little towns in Kauai. It’s called A. Ell Designs, and it is located in Kapaa. The owner, Angelique, sews her clothing right there in her shop…I bought super-soft bamboo tee shirts for my daughter and myself. Her shop is bright and cheery and full of handmade goods by all sorts of great local designers. What a find! She carries a few items on her site…or her Etsy shop as well.

Can you tell that I’m trying to mentally prepare myself for winter?! I’ve found more fabulous indie-made coats…this time, from De Novo. The designer writes that she started her coat making career making coats for her dog at age 7! How sweet! I LOVE the coat on the bottom right…

You can check out more styles on her website, too!

What kind of cuteness are the tees and plush from Belgium based Plush?!! Their little creatures have such great character. Their sizes run from 3-6 months all the way up to 6 years. So cute!

I love the photos too…aren’t those kids are adorable! Oh how much I’d have to pay to get my dishwater-blond to look that gorgeous…ha ha!

you NEED IT.

I’m loving all of the indie clothing designers that are popping up on Etsy these days. Need It is a great example, and I especially love the cozy looking cardigans….I can’t believe I’m already jonesin’ for fall clothes…remind me of this when I’m complaining about the winter weather, would ya?!

That’s right, people, Kansas. Erin Leigh Heart always has something new and cute in her shop of handmade clothes…from Lawrence, Kansas! Right now, I’m loving the charcoal maxi dress {bottom, left}. She also has a great blog where you can see her newest styles when she adds them…
