Stumbling across Lala + J almost two years ago, was love at first sight. It were their range of gorgeous baby leather moccasins that had me going gaga from the get go and Hunter is already on her second pair! I love that they are elasticated around the ankle and so taking them on and off is so easy. I also love that they are super soft, meaning my little girls’ feet, which are still developing and strengthening, aren’t being ruined by hard shoes that don’t allow her free movement.

I know Hunter can’t talk properly yet but I bet that if she could she would tell me they are one her favourite pairs by far, always fetching them for me to put them on when we head out the door. And over the last few months we have enjoyed dressing her in some very cute pieces from this awesome brand. Featured below she is wearing some gorgeous stripped tights from their fall/winter collection. She still rocks these tights with her summer dresses and long tees. 🙂


Lala + J are a San Fransisco based business run by South African born mama Alonz who has a history in retail and apparel.  Alonz is also a preschool teacher with a passion for young kids and you can see her passion displayed in her beautiful children’s clothing. There’s a unique creative flair that runs throughout her ranges and I adore her attention to detail. With everything hand printed and sewn, Lala + J pride themselves on quality and sustainability. I simply love their range of cammo harem shorts for boys and ruffle sleeve onesies for little girls and their signature prints that run throughout the ranges.

Here Hunter is sporting hers on the beach in Mauritius! I mean have you ever?? Its so perfect as it works as a cozzie too!

Also these little girl brookies are getting my ovaries all worked up…..

“Lala + J is a curated collection of accessories, apparel and interior. Pieces have been hand drawn or customized by Alonya in her home. Most pieces go through three steps before the end garment is completed. The clothes are simple, stylish & comfortable. Kids are always running jumping and playing, and Alonya believes clothes shouldn’t hinder them doing that. Inspired by her kids for yours.

The good news is that even though this creative talent is being made across oceans, it’s available here in SA! Lala + J are now being stocked at select Kids Emporium stores countrywide. You can find them in the following stores: Polokwane, Durbanville, Constantia, Bryanston, Boksburg and Midstream.

These mocs and summer tees, as well as their entire range of apparel, are PERFECT for babies who want to explore and who are always on the move!!
