PHOTO SHOOT: HUNDRED PIECES

Hundred Pieces photo shoot Live Loud Girl

Summer is on our doorstep. The mornings are light, the evenings get long and our sleeves get short.
It’s a great time to update the kids wardrobe as they grow faster then weeds. These long legs were in desperate need of some new cool shorts and we therefore could not be happier with our order from Hundred Pieces.

Hundred Pieces has a great selection for kids and teens with a focus on essentials inspired by vintage sports wear. The materials are stunning, the prints are fun and all items match together. And that is just what we love for all of our boys. Mind you, between our team of 4 we have quite a few of them walking around. Boys 9 – Girls 0.

This cool kids brand is available at Smallable. And to celebrate summer we have teamed up for a GIVE AWAY: A €150 voucher to spend on Hundred Pieces!

SHOP THE MILAN LOOK

Visiting Italy in spring is always a good idea. Our excuse this week was a trip to the Milan Design Week to spot trends, meet with suppliers and experience the creative epicenter of styling and design that this city transforms into once a year. For the work that we do it is one of the most inspirational trips we can make.

Yet there is more to Milan then just the Design Week. The architecture, the shops, the food and the people, it’s all so good to experience making us realize there is a lot that we can learn from the Italians.

Italians are known for living la dolce vita (“the good life”).
Food should be enjoyed at a table with loved ones. So we sat down and had numerous plates of the most divine pasta, taking the time for it and appreciating all those tasty ingredients. A salad is considered a side dish and not a meal. We are supporters!

We fit right in by not getting up too early yet starting the day off right with a croissant and coffee at a local coffee bar. Drinks go in proper cups in Italy, there is no such thing as a coffee to-go.

And the Italians know how to dress well. They live by the saying: la bella figura, meaning that life is better when you look better. So no messy bun and flip flops but beautiful quality pieces and dito shoes.

To make sure that we would look good for the occasion, we were dressed by Smallable. We chose some beautiful items to reflect both our own style and that of a Design Week. We went for classic pieces that could be dressed up or down for the different events we were attending.

Regarding design, we go back home fully inspired. When it comes to lifestyle, we hope to become a little more Italian every year because Vivo forte – Perché no? (translates: Live Loud, why not?)

SPRING BREAK

Spring break is on our doorstep and for a change we will be spending it back home. A long day of traveling is ahead of us so it is essential to get comfortable. In Holland, cooler weather is awaiting us. We obviously hope to get some nice spring days too although we can not say we don’t get enough sun during the year. Our days will be filled with family and relaxing. No (very) early school drop offs, no routine and no school uniform for two weeks! Hallelujah!

We will be making some outings together yet for me it is also a work trip. Preparing a visit to the Design week in Milan (Yeah! Obviously more about this in the coming weeks) and taking the first steps in getting our own little hide away up and running. The only thing that I can tell you is that you can soon book a break Live Loud Girl style….

So with full suitcases and agenda’s we are off for the coming two weeks. A break in between our completed jobs in the first quarter of this year and a chance to energize for some awesome projects that are lined up for the next.

THE TEAM IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA

We are strong believers of celebrating life as much as possible. So when the day came the team was finally complete again since ages (which is a rare occasion as Roos is located in Cape Town) we decided to go all out and celebrate it with a team shoot. And so the Live Loud Girl team got in front of the camera.
