Boerum Park cool

This is the debut of “Spotted!”, a weekly photo digest that features kids’ and parents’ style in one neighborhood of Brooklyn.  Editorial comments are mainly the photographer’s, Justine Cooper, but I stuck my 2 cents in too!

Viv, JJ Byrne Park: knows how to style a headband and black sneaks

(L) Will, JJ Byrne Park: straw hat modified by Will and parents. (R) Flash (yes, that’s his name) and his shirt says the same. Flap hats are the best for full-head sun protection.

(L) Laura, Viola (11 months) & Giulia (4 y.o.) Carroll St Playground. I want those red velvet shoes! (R) Tess 9 months, Gap Baby hat Carroll St Playground

(L) Baby silver tappers. (R) Alva with whistle accessory garnered from the goodie bag at a Deedle Dee’s concert, dress from Sweden

(L) Kitty gal has a French fashion fairy godmother (R) Shoes were bought that morning: $9.99 Payless
