Today we are joined for Sunday Coffee by the gorgeous Ashlea from Skip to my Lou. This lovely online store stocks so many great brands from all over the world, if you enjoy shopping for something different than everyone else this is one store worth checking out. Behind the scenes Ashlea is busy working on a brand new website, I can’t wait to see the end result!
What does your ideal Sunday look like?
A lazy Sunday is always the best, so we can get ready for the week ahead! Lucy is very much an outdoor girl so we spend as much time outside as possible: going to the park, the beach or spending time out in the garden.
Why did you start Skip to my Lou?
I am obsessed with fashion and online shopping! So when I had my daughter my love of fashion quickly extended to children’s fashion. I found that there were a lot of stores out there but they all stocked the same brands. I wanted to create something a bit different that mixed unique Australian labels with amazing international brands and bring them to the one place.
Starting Skip to my Lou has been very exciting – I have learnt so much over the past year and look forward to see how it will evolve and grow in the future!
What do you like most about running Skip to my Lou?
There are so many things I love about running Skip to my Lou! I love that I am learning new things all the time ant that it forces me to take time out for myself- so my life does not completely revolve around a 2.5 year old and running a household!
I love getting to see all of the new trends and picking out Lucy’s wardrobe for the upcoming seasons!
Most importantly the lifestyle it gives me- I get to spend the day with my daughter being a mum. I love the fact that I can take Lucy to her music lessons and gymnastics and watching her grow into a fun and sweet little girl.
What is your favourite Skip to my Lou product?
With all of the new styles constantly coming in it is so hard to choose! But my favourite product coming into the summer would have to be anything Coco & Ginger!
I love the prints and styles they feel so summery. I love the Fern Shorts and the Maya Blouse, I just wish Lucy was big enough to fit them!
What can we expect of Skip to my Lou in the near (or maybe far) future?
We are very busy getting ready to launch our new look site in the coming weeks- I am very excited about this! In the future we are looking to grow and extend our size range to cater for ages 0 to 8 years and bring lots of new exciting brands to Skip to my Lou.
