Summer is a real sizzler this year. The endless blue skies and scorching temperatures have taken me back to my childhood when summer seemed endless. I have become nostalgic for warm nights where we would run around barefoot chasing geckos, and for long days at the local waterhole. What a blessing parenthood is as we are able to revisit these memories as we create similar moments for our children.

Possum & Banjo – www.possumandbanjo.com.au - is the brainchild of Brisbane based designer Leanne, and is a label that captures the Australian summer, and adds a little retro inspiration to create a collection that captures the essence of childhood. Each item is designed and made in the Possum & Banjo studio in Queensland, making it a true home grown label.

Boys and their dads (and even some mums) will gasp when spotting the Classic Street Cars 100% Cotton Shorts - they’re super cool (there’s also Retro Chevs and Vintage Car Ads). Mums keep your eye out for the Whimsical Linen & Tulle Skirt for girls – made from 100% linen it’s lovely and breathable, making it perfect for our hot summer. From cool and comfy cotton to organic denim and luxurious eco-natural linen, these fabrics will stand up to the heat and continued wear by your kids.

Available in sizes 1 to 6 and priced from $17.95, Possum & Banjo can be purchased directly from their online boutique, Purely 4 Kids and Cornflowerblue.
