Stylish threads for on-trend little guys

Moms of boys, you know it can be a full-on hunt to find cool threads for our little guys. Especially if, like mine, your son happens to love fashion.  So when I discovered Aven Clothing, I actually squealed with happiness. Aven founders Angie Monson and Mitch Harris have created an all-boys clothing line that is wonderfully stylish. The line includes blazers, pullovers, chinos and the cutest cropped vest, all with an edgy European flair. This definitely isn’t your average jeans and t-shirt line, though you will find lots of denim (and even a cool hoodie).                                         ...

Ahoy! Plunder this treasure of adorable shirts for your favorite matey

Avast me hearties, it’s International Talk Like a Pirate Day! And if you have a little landlubber who likes to plunder your desk drawers and yell arrrrrrr at all hours of the day and night, we have got the cutest little tee to add to your booty. The Pepe the Pirate tee from b. childrenswear features a kid-friendly design for kiddos with an affection for life on the high seas. I’d call the design “pirate lite” since Pepe looks like he’d be perfectly amenable to swabbing the deck a second or third time, instead of doing something truly lawless. If...

Sweet savings on Tea Collection and their stunning new clothes for kids

With the air already getting cooler, it’s time to pack up our our kids’ tank tops, shorts, and summer dresses and replace them with new warmer clothes. Fortunately, we have some awesome ideas in that department, as you might have guessed. Like so many moms, we’ve been long time fans of the beautiful, modern pieces from Tea Collection that hold up through many seasons and siblings–as we all know first-hand. So we’re always happy when this mom-run company returns as a sponsor (yay!) so that we get the chance to share our own personal picks from their brand-new Nordic-inspired...

Custom embroidery on just about any kids’ gifts you can imagine

We all know that personalized items make a baby’s or kid’s gift ten times more special. While many of the big catalog stores offer custom embroidery, they’ll usually only personalize their own brand’s items–which is kind of limiting. So I’m so happy to find a shop that features some of our own favorite small brands, and allows you to personalize their items with a name. For ages we’ve loved companies like 3 Sprouts, Apple Park and Myself Belts. And now the site Makaboo features them as part of a smart selection of items, from loveys and baby gifts, to back-to-school gear, decor, and clothing. The...

The biggest sale ever at one of our favorite shops ever

One of the awesome things about this job is getting to discover so many wonderful small businesses run by the most amazing people. One of the hard parts: hearing that they’re closing shop to move onto new ventures. This is the case with one of our longtime favorite kids’ boutiques, Arte Bebe. But on the upside, they’re offering a huge (huge!) discount just for our readers while they clear out stock. Right now, score 30% off already discounted prices on any fashion, toys, gifts and accessories on the site. Considering a lot of it is already 10-50% off, that’s...

Ralph Lauren Girls fall and holiday collection: gorgeous stuff

Last week, I was so thrilled to be invited to attend the fashion show for the Ralph Lauren Fall and Holiday Girls collection. I have to admit, I was surprised at how wearable and funky a lot of the fashions were, as opposed to the serious, preppy, classic equestrian look you might expect. In fact my own daughters were pointing at the things they liked–all while I kept reminding them we weren’t shopping, we were reporting. Here are some of the more wearable looks and trends that I really loved, along with some budget tips to help you get...

Sports jerseys from a time when you could actually afford to see the game in person

All kids can rock their little league team uniforms but alas, my kids don’t play traditional team sports and therefore don’t get a complimentary skateboarding jersey (should there be such a thing). They want jerseys, but they want them to be unique and different. Jersey envy? You bet. This sportswear website is the answer to their dreams–and mine–because it’s a fundraising opportunity and a cool thread company. Prep Sportswear lets you choose from shorts, shirts, jerseys and so much more. But my favorite is the remarkably comprehensive vintage team jersey section. We’re talking teams from every state (plus Puerto...

ThredUp reinvents itself and now buying discount designer kids clothes–or selling them–is a joy

You know how it goes: your kids wear their clothes for a ridiculously short period of time. Sure, there’s always hand-me-downs, or consignment and Craigslist, if you’re motivated enough to try to make some money. But those routes require time and energy that many of us are sorely lacking at this time of year. So we’re happy to discover that thredUP has newly relaunched, as a very easy, very good-looking online consignment shop.

Hats off, Aussies. These kids’ accessories dazzle.

When I saw this adorable little outfit on Planet Awesome Kid, I knew I had to track down the hat immediately. It brought me to the most wonderful Australian webshop filled with so many amazing kids’ accessories. Including possibly the  most awesome kids’ boots I’ve ever seen. Australia is always rife with great kids clothes, and because the dollar and the AUD are pretty darn close right now, it can be a decent deal to shop from there. Especially if you’re getting something really special that you haven’t seen anywhere else. Milk N Soda is a fun source for...

Rock on, Ben Franklin!

My oldest is a budding scientist. He looks up to Ben Franklin the way most people look up to rock stars. For a while, said son was sporting a tri-corn hat to really perfect his Franklin look. That kind of got in the way, and frankly, wool is pretty darn hot. Thankfully for both of us, we have found a different way to share the love. This sweet kids’ t-shirt by Okllo sports Ben Franklin in all of his glory. His hair is down and the bifocals are on. They’ve included one of my favorite Franklin quotes of all times:...
