Cool Kids’ Clothes

Knit Picks

Since we’ve had children, every year in mid-December, my husband asks me, "Shouldn’t we get a family picture taken for our holiday cards?" And…

Always in Season

Remember the days when a ponytail was the last resort? Those were the days. Now pulling my hair back has become my style of choice. At least, that’s what I try to tell myself.

Enter the Dragon

I’m always on the lookout for children’s apparel that straddles the line between my sigOth’s sensibility and my own. He doesn’t want her in everything pink; I don’t want her in everything Redskins. What we can agree on: These Kenji Dragon Pants from Tea Collection.

One Less Battle in the Morning

We have arrived at the highly unanticipated "I can do it myself" stage in our household.Unfortunately, that includes thingsthat my daughter really can’t do herself, like chopping vegetables with a big pointy knife. So in order to maintain some semblance of my sanity, I’m in the market for anything that fosters independence–and won’t cut off her fingers.

Buh-Bye, Burns

I was a fair-skinned child who grew up at a time when the sun was worshipped, not respected. Think baby oil and reflectors. Yikes. I had more than my share of heinous sunburns, and now that I know better, I’m doing my best to spare my children that pain–or worse

Little Miss Can’t-Be-Matched

You’ve surely heard the wisdom that if you buy socks for newborns and toddlers in a single color, such as white like I did, then you’ll never be without a matched pair. But just as you’re thinking you’ve outsmarted the dryer elves, along comes a bigger challenge – a two year-old with strong opinions on clothing, and white is definitely not all right.

The Future’s So Bright

Last summer my now one-year-old was just a little worm who spent his days in the shade of his stroller. But this year we’re grabbing the sun by its rays and getting dirty in the sand. Only problem? It’s bright out there y’all and sometimes a cute hat just ain’t enough.

The Muse of Children’s Fashion

Some people you just want to hate. For example, a former model-turned-mom who still looks like a model. But when you get to know her a bit and find out she’s also nice and cool and smart and has a great kid, AND designs unbelievably awesome childrens clothes, well dammit, you just can’t be a hatah.

These Clips Make Me Giddy

Giddy1We’re just getting to the point that my daughter might actually have enough hair for a clip. However, I have been forced to put the kibosh on my victory dance due to the poor offerings of sassy hair clips that work on a head with barely any hair. Seriously, if you are not into satin bows or glittery claw clips, you are way out of luck.
