At the circus yesterday my husband and I looked at each other, both filled with self-hatered. You could say that PETA’s picketing outside was enough to make us feel like the biggest low-lives, but really it was just watching the show through the lens of an adult that shifted our perspective. In the car home we talked to the kids about treating animals with respect and how we don’t believe that they should be coerced into doing tricks for entertainment value. Basically, if we hadn’t taken them to the art museum for “Jazz Night” a few days earlier we’d probably be on a downward spiral right now. Ethics check! Below, an ode to the beautiful (but probably sedated) creatures who aren’t meant to be doing handstands in sequin vests.

My favorite editor is Emmanuelle Alt, my favorite boots are by Chloe and I do love a nice nicoise. So it’s no surprise that I tend to fall in love with children’s stores that are also based in France. Wah. My new favorite is My Little Square where I found one of my favorite hard-to-find-it-in-the-States brands, Dandy Star. Other fun discoveries from the shop include DIY garlands and wistful cloud pillows. In case you wanted to order in bulk, I’m just saying! J’adore this little dress for the holiday season because it’s festive but not formal (no taffeta here!) Team it with a slouchy beret, natch.
