You know how it is. You stumble across a ridiculously cute kids’ hat/bag/yoga mat (circle appropriate) and you just have to have it for your little one. Sure, it’s double your budget and sold out everywhere except on the other side of town—but it’s stolen your heart so much you’re prepared to face hell, high water, and fisticuffs with another mum just to get it. So, you buy it and lovingly present it to your little one…who screams and throws it across the room where it remains till the next big clean out. Sigh. It’s happened to me a million times, BUT here are a bunch of adorable accessories for toddlers that pass the test at my place. No meltdowns, guaranteed.
Jade Warne is the Hipster Mum, the eldest daughter in a family of 14 children raised by nuns on the beaches of Sydney, Australia. Just kidding! There were actually only seven of them, all raised by the kind of super-mum who makes nuns look like slackers: entrepreneurial, talented, kind, beautiful, and scandalously stylish. As the high-powered (read: high-strung) kid of the bunch, she studied finance and pitched stories to magazines on the side, eventually winding up at Marie Claire and Women's Health. These days, she offers a creative guide to parenting at Hipster Mum. Check out Hipster Mum on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and get liking already!
