Because fall is here since a few days… and I know it still feels like summer just arrived but time is already here to start thinking about kid’s wardrobe with warmer pieces, longer sleeves and some chunky knits. And even if it’s still really warm, In October, those warmer pieces can be really useful on fresh nights and crisp mornings.
I get lots of messages and e mails about the shops and stores that I get my kids clothes from. Here are some of my favorites as when it comes to really functional, cute, stylish and comfy clothes for baby.
Little minimalist – @littleminimalist.ca
Tara the owner of this lovely Montreal shop, chooses every piece of clothing, every shoe, every bag carefully and thoughtfully, from brands that she believes to be the best in the world. Her focus is smaller brands, that aren’t mainstream, for original and authentic baby.
She has really fun, unique and minimalist brands in her selection that I totally love because of the style, the neutral colours and the softness of the fabrics.
Our favorites pieces for Fall are definitely the Hubble & Duke gumboots, the Skyscraper Sweatshirt from Jax & Hedley, the Beau Hudson cardigans and the kid Wild playsuits.
Os and Oakes – @OSANDOAKES
Os and Oakes creates simple, stylish, unisex apparel for fashionable little ones ranging from sizes 12 Months – 5T. Made in Ontario Canada, their collection is inspired by the latest trends and is tailored to fit our adorable little tot.
The style of their little pieces are trendy and minimalist and I love this. It makes it much easier to build little outfits with solid colors. Our favorites pieces are the striped ostrich tee, spot me long sleeve sweater with it’s cute elbow patch, french terry leggings and the catch me tee with it’s contrasting pocket.
Plum Kids – @plum.kids
Plum Kids creates handmade, simple, minimalist fashions for babies and kids, with a mature level of style in mind. Jas ‘ goal ( the owner and creator of Plum kids ) is blending quality fabrics with polished aesthetic, and creates unique, modern and fashionable clothing pieces for kids that fit comfortably and feel good on the skin.
Here again, I really like the minimalist style, the soft fabrics and the way all pieces always looks stylish.
Our favorite pieces are the grey knitted bloomers, the striped overalls and the peekaboo romper.

Our favorite pieces are their harems and leggings, modern infinite scarves, and the really adorable animal print organic tees.
Boutique le méchant loup – @boutiquelemechantloup
Le Méchant Loup is a decoration and clothing online shop for babies and toddlers, located in the south shore of Montreal. In love with modern and monochrome, Karine the owner takes the time to carefully choose every item from the best brands in the world to make them a part of our family memories.
The reason why we like this monochrome online boutique, it’s because of the gorgeous brands selected, the variety she has to offer online and the cuteness of the clothing collections.
Our favorites pieces are Miles baby rompers, the HUX baby sweaters, the Dudes N Dolls leggings and the Whistle & flute pyjama.
Established in Quebec they constantly innovate in order to please their customers and to stay up-to-date with the latest trends in the clothing market.

They work with small independent brands from Canada and all over the world who pride themselves on using the best quality materials, with a focus on details and ethical production.
