CONTRAST - THE BEST OF BOTH WORLD | Post by Fiona @nor_folk

Our son, Stanley, leads a double life – he's a city boy as well as a countryside rambler. Our family home is in the heart of the city, with shops, caf├ęs and restaurants on our doorstep. By contrast, when at his grandparents, he enjoys the sound of birds singing and wide open space in the countryside. This is a contrast that we think is fulfilling and enlightening and so, ensures he really does get the best of both worlds.
As Stanley grows, so does his style. Likewise, our breadth and knowledge of children's brands broadens. We’re passionate about supporting independent businesses and this month’s feature focusses on some wonderful British brands – all of which have been captured in the quintessentially British setting of Stanley’s grandparents' thatched cottage and surrounds.

Stanley is wearing the recently launched Type Face tee from our own brand Nor-Folk. The concept was conceived out of the multitude of expressions Stanley exhibits and constructed from typography – staying true to our graphic design roots. We have paired our new Type Face tee with the very comfortable Dragonfly leggings by Fig & Honey. These are particularly poignant given the cottage is a stones throw from the River Thurne, in the heart of the Norfolk Broads. The soft colours of the Dragonflys work well with various pieces we own and have a lovely illustrative quality. The leggings sit really well with the beautiful 100% eco leather moccasin sandals by Monkey and Mole. They are seriously cute – great for allowing teeny toes some fresh air in the warm summer months.

Of course, no outfit is complete without his trade mark Forever A Freckle trawler beanie.  Being breathable, it means it’s great on an overcast summers day and keeps him snug late into the summer evenings. 

When Stanley is playing hard, it means he retains that cheeky little face – the very inspiration for the tee that he wears today and enjoys during his countryside jaunts.

Thanks for reading friends
