What made you want to start The Tiny Times?
We live on the other side of the world from our family and friends. A blog like this is a beautiful and fun way to keep everyone up-to-date. It was never really meant to be about the fashion! When I started the blog I thought the angle of mimicking a street style blog would simply be a cute and humorous way to share with everyone.
What are some trends that you see for fall and winter?
I actually don’t have a fashion background and don’t know much about trends or labels! I think things that are classic and practical will always be popular. Pea coats with a nice set of boots is always a winner.
Where do you get your fashion inspiration?
Fashion choices for me are just a part of my personality and represent the things l like in many other areas of life such as music, art, film, etc. My son has become increasingly involved in making his own choices and they usually involve characters he likes – he’s almost always got something with batman or yo gabba gabba on 🙂
What advice would you give to parents shopping for their children?
Clothes obviously need to be practical and comfortable first and foremost. Just buy what you love and as your child gets older allow him/her to get involved if they want to. Fashion is a great way to learn self expression and individuality however not all kids will be receptive to that lesson so make sure your shopping habits reflect your child’s personality and interests in that respect. On a practical note, I always buy very big and let my son grow into things. If he really loves something I will get two sizes.
