You already know what they say about a Sunday well spent…and it’s true. The adventurer in us decided to visit the Los Angeles Zoo today for the very first time since moving to California and we loved it so much we bought annual passes so we can now go anytime we want to!
Formerly hailed as the enemy and every parents nightmare when their children refuse to wear anything but sweatpants. Granted not always an issue but for those occasions where sweatpants are simply too casual we have discovered a european designer that has completely redesigned the boring staple into a gorgeous work of fashion art and high style.
Sweet Pants produces stylish options for those that demand fleece including those rebellious adults. Suspender-attached, artful prints, loose or slim and always slinky soft (there is even a genuine, buttersoft leather version).
To dress them up is as easy as pairing them with a well-tailored shirt, added accessories and since every outfit is always all about the shoes skip the sneakers and go for boots, loafers or even wingtips (yes, wingtips).
For Wynn we took his playground look of an American Apparel tank, Sweet Pants loose in bottle green and Dr. Martens up a notch by adding in a swanky button-up by Bobo Choses and glory printed scarf by Tale of Boy. Instant transformation and he is still in his beloved sweatpants!
Sweet Pants black camouflage in slim are an easy target for creating a stylish look. Wynn wears Popupshop owl crew layered over a La Miniatura tuxedo shirt (looks fab without the crew too!), knitted beanie by Christys and Blundstone boots.
For the true fashionisto, we added our Appaman snakeskin blazer. Would you have instantly noticed he was wearing sweatpants?!? Dressed up or left completely casual, Sweet Pants remain extremely stylish and comfortable. We fell in love with them back in March while at ENK in NYC, Sweet Pants shared the same space as the highly fashion-glamorous DSquared2.
French fashion at it’s finest even when producing sweatpants, we are thoroughly impressed with Sweet Pants as is this little 1/3 Frenchman right here who has repeatedly requested to wear his regardless of the 90f heat we are having here in Los Angeles.
For sizing reference, Wynn is wearing size 6yr in camo slims & size 8yr in bottle green loose.

Timeless style with a direct focus on heirloom quality, that is the inspiration behind Pasadena, CA based Blu Pony Vintage. Owner & designer, Bonnie Matthews stirs up the ghosts from days gone by and brings them to the front of modern day fashion. Impeccably designed and created to fit as all high style fashion should.
Wynn is wearing Blu Pony Vintage Mel O. vest in Vintage Denim Stripe fabric with a tan check back over La Miniatura yellow tuxedo shirt, Scotch Shrunk slimfit chinos dressed up with Blu Pony Vintage Black/Beige striped braces and Crewcuts straw fedora & wingtips.
For a more casual look, we replaced the tuxedo shirt with a simple ribbed tank by American Apparel in creme versus stark white to keep the mood nostalgic. Blu Pony Vintage makes it possible for old stars of fashion to weave their way through to the younger generation that is poised to represent them and carry on the legacy of high style childrens wear.
The strong man, an instantly recognizable character from the very far past. Keeping the fashion focus on the children themselves, Blu Pony Vintage includes a very small and particular set of graphics for their 100% super soft cotton tees. Wynn is wearing their previous season Strong Man tee with Crewcuts railstripe chino shorts dressed up with Blu Pony Vintage Black/Beige striped braces & Dr. Martens kids Delaney boots.

No relation yet obviously the coolest name ever, Chicago-based POP Kids is literally taking the graphic design tee market by storm. Emerging on the scene like a hungry bear waking up from deep hibernation, POP Kids design team Ellen & Bruce Perry are serious about claiming space in your little’s closets so start making some room now.
Most of you who know us well have heard us repeatedly advise you to “Never trust anyone that doesn’t like The Beatles”, POP Kids has nothing but mad love for the fab four and proves it with their All You Need is Love tee that we styled with Jagged Culture music fedora, Zara denim jacket, Mini & Maximus dropcrotch pants & black Timberlands.
When we asked Ellen & Bruce what inspired them to start a kids line, they replied with, “We are both just crazy about the idea of tee shirt design as an art medium because, unlike art that hangs so pristine-like in galleries, tees are wearable art, meant to be lived in. And there’s just something so fun about creating them specifically for the littles of the world.” We couldn’t agree more especially coming from Ellen who previously had an adult line of tees that were sold in museum shops including the infamous Whitney Museum of American Art.
POP Kids prints all of their designs on American Apparel tees making them instantly soft and the perfect fit for every body type. Road rebel or leader of the playground pack? Wynn wears POP Kids tee paired with Haas urban pants, H&M faux leather jacket & Timberlands.
This soon to be California kid loved this POP Kids tribute to the city we’ll soon be putting our faith in. Bringing a little southside soul to the West Coast nod, we styled this one with our red Forever 21 studded beanie, Love My Alannah boss neck chain, Czesiociuch harems & Timberlands.
Wynn was recently asked what he wants to be when he grows up and he replied, a Hero! POP Kids nailed this one especially since he doesn’t need to wait until he grows up, he already is one just like all kids are. We styled this favorite with Mini Rodini leather moto jacket, Frank & Lu teal skinny fit chino & coming soon for Spring tan, side-zip Timberland boots.
Batman or Baller? POP Kids smashes it either way & we styled this one with our black Zara blazer, Zara denim, Crewcuts wingtips & representing our home team – Chicago Cubs baseball hat.

Recently a Gary, Indiana (King of POP Michael Jackson’s hometown) Art Center invited several graffiti artists to come to it’s city and paint the town red literally. Graffiti artists from NYC, Chicago as well as those local to Gary spent an entire weekend turning the walls of various buildings in the Miller Beach section of Gary into serious works of art. One drive down Lake Street which leads directly to Lake Michigan, produces an eye-popping burst of imagination, color & soulful creativity.

Hello Merch is an independent company started in 2008 by Sam Means as an outlet for artists to manufacture and sell merchandise online and on tour, without giving up their rights by signing major label-style merch contracts. All of the artist’s designs are printed on Made in the USA clothing company, American Apparel which is extremely soft, highly durable and from our own personal experience with AA ~ holds up to a gazillion washings & wearings!
We were sent Hello Apparel’s “Major ‘Tude” tank for Wynn which fits his newfound personality perfectly! Extremely soft with graphics printed in Summer’s best colors, American Apparel tanks are cut to fit any body without being too boxy or having armholes that overly-expose. Hello Apparel also sent us some of their Temporary Tattoos which Wynn loves inking himself up! For sizing reference, Wynn is 45″ tall & is wearing Size 8yr ~ which our experience with AA tells us that it will shrink some when washed so keep that in mind when ordering.
“Soft Kitty, warm kitty, little ball of fur”……Admittedly we are geeks in our house. We LOVE Big Bang Theory so when I saw this Kitty tee available at HELLO clothing it instantly reminded me of Sheldon’s Soft Kitty from Big Bang and I HAD to get it.
Let me tell you this shirt lives up to the “Soft Kitty” title. The cotton is some of the softest I have felt, the shirt is light weight and perfect for spring or summer but not too light weight that you feel like it’s going to get a hole as soon as you wear it.
Who can resist the sweet little face of a kitty, the graphic is adorable and totally gender neutral. The screening is awesome, nice and light so it doesn’t feel stiff to the wearer but holds up amazingly in the wash.
Casper looked totally adorable with his kitty tee and we got tons of “awe that’s so cute” while we were out so this shirt tops the list as a must have for sure. We highly recommend HELLO Clothing and will be snatching up more ourselves.” ~ Amy
In addition to Kids Clothing, Hello Apparel also retails an enormous amount of Artist-created products including Adult clothing, Snapback hats, Posters, Patches, Music CDs & Vinyl (yes record albums are sold here!)
