The cutest baby ballet flats. Dare you not to squee.

The days of fabulous heels are gone for this ex-New Yorker. Pregnant or not, I live in cute, comfy flats these days. And although I’m not the matchy-matchy type, expecting a little girl has me thinking about the occasional mommy and me outfit that wouldn’t make 25-year-old me roll my eyes. So when I heard that Linge Shoes, known for their stylish grown-up ballet flats, was coming out with ballet shoes for babies and kids, I leapt at the chance (ha) to check them out. Linge Shoes’ baby ballet flats are made of soft leather, and so colorful and precious they make me want to enroll my daughter in ballet class right now–and...

3 cool holiday outfits that your kids can wear long after the holidays are over

One of my favorite parts of the holiday season is putting together the perfect holiday outfit for my kids–all four of them. In the past, that has led to me purchasing all sorts of shoes and accessories, on top of the fabulous holiday dress for my girls, and new sweater for my son. You can imagine the bill. So over the years, I’ve learned that you invest in one beautiful, splurge-y dress or a fantastic skirt or pants that’s super special for the holidays, and then you pair it with more budget-friendly items. Including  ones you’ve already got in your closet. It’s a great trick for making a...

12 cool STEM gifts for girls. (And hey, for boys too.)

With a STEM-loving daughter (and STEAM as it’s now being called by some, because yay Arts too!), you can bet I’m always on the hunt for cool STEM gifts for girls. And, while we’ve come a long way in the last few years, I still find that great ones can be tough to find. Just take a look at the racks at clothing stores and toy shops. Eep. I know I’m not the only one who sees awesome science or computer tees filed under “boys” and thinks, hey-0 my daughter would love that! So on behalf of our sponsor GoldieBlox, who launched three...

Winter hats on!

Finding a winter coat for the baby always seems easy, but it can be a challenge to find a hat that is logo, character and cheesy design-free. We came across these delightful, updated-retro styles from Little Sun Hat that I think will do the trick to keep mini noggins warm this winter. The plaid winter hats will have your little ones looking like they just stepped out of a 1950s catalog in the best way possible. Designer Kara Meloy drew inspiration for her new winter collection from her childhood in the Cascade Mountains, focusing on plaids and tweeds, with charmingly classic cuts. The collection is available in three...

Smart t-shirts for boys that girls can wear too.

I loved every single one of the smart t-shirts for girls from Peek, so pretty cool that they’ve created a line of smart t-shirts for boys too, in particular, this one featuring the words of one of the most amazing men on the planet. The Mandela quote t-shirt is made for boys of all sizes (toddler through tweens!), although yes, they’ll work for girls too. Truth be told, as a mom of a boy, it’s always awesome to find clothes just for him that are smart and inspiring, especially in the sea of sports logos and monster trucks. After hearing all of your own requests...

Frankie and Sue’s comfy fall dresses for girls: California Dreamin’.

Think laid-back, Southern California, bohemian chic and you’ve got Frankie & Sue‘s new fall collection of dresses for girls. They’re all about jewel tones, which I love for fall, and while there’s a lot of mix-and-match patterns, they’re working towards a more cool, not-cutesy vibe. These are comfortable cotton clothes for girls to play in, but pretty enough to wear out to a party. And while not everything in the collection is our cup of tea, I think a few of the dresses in particular make great all-around pieces for my daughter’s closet.     These clothes are inspired by relaxed Southern California culture and I like that they’re made there...

Meet fall headfirst with the coolest hoodies for boys

If your boys are anything like my own, falling temperatures aren’t going to keep them inside, so it’s officially time to make sure they have some cool new hoodies to keep them warm on brisk days. We’re pretty sure none of the other kids, boy or girl, will have one of these comfy, stylish hoodies, but if they do, commend them for their great taste. We raved about the boys’ tees from Warrior Poet last spring, and we’re loving their Lion’s Tooth hoodie (at top) for the fall. The houndstooth pattern is on trend, and that lion is fierce. This J Crew...

Chaboukie: Handmade baby leggings to dye for

Maybe it’s the cooler weather, but we just keep discovering funky leggings your babies and kids should be wearing. Like, stat. And now there’s another. I’ve loved the mom-and-pop owned LA shop Chaboukie for their super cool, edgy designs, and their latest collection of Shibori handmade tie-dye baby leggings is no exception. Named after the centuries-old Japanese method for fabric embellishment (so no, it was not invented by Deadheads) the new line features really special tie-dye baby leggings and matching tank tops for kids up to size 4T.       Shibori‘s philosophy is to attempt to guide the dye as much as possible before ultimately letting it run its own course–much like...

Traditional Swedish slipper socks get a lot less traditional

Every so often we come across a small company that takes a classic product and bring it up to date in an irresistible way, and the adaptation of traditional Swedish slipper socks by London company Ace&Me nails it. My kids have lived in slippers like these since they were little, and the fabrics tend to come in more traditional stripes, solids….you know the drill. But here, Swedish cousins Pia Tamm Hagno and Anna Eberstein brought Swedish slipper socks up to date with some wonderfully modern patterns and styles, all of them handmade. – Don’t miss an exclusive limited time offer below for Cool...

Brighten up your winter with cool, colorful jackets for kids

It’s hard to believe it, but winter’s going to be here soon, and forecasters are saying this is going to be a cold one. I, for one, not going to let the idea of a long, snowy winter get me down, especially when this year’s winter jackets for kids are so fun, bright, and colorful. I know, I know– it’s no fun trying to get kids bundled up and out the door on a freezing cold morning, but a really cool coat helps.  Especially if it’s one they don’t mind putting on themselves. Hopefully these colorful jackets for kids will get you through the...

T-shirts from J Crew that help support two of our favorite educational charities

I don’t need a reason to cozy up with the new J Crew catalog or website, multiple times a day, so give me that plus an awesome cause and you have my complete attention. Their new fall kids collection includes two t-shirts that support partnerships with education-based non-profits. Each is also miraculously mutually agreed by parent and child in our house as “cool.” I’m sold. The DonorsChoose.org t-shirt from the CrewCuts collection totally appeals the to 80’s kid in me who loved those black and white composition notebooks. The graphic, designed by Hugo Guiness, reads “P.S. We <3 you.” and promotes the Donors Choose mission of helping teachers help students. If you’ve...

We found it: the adorable I Wake Up Awesome tee, and other cool, fun kids t-shirts for fall

Last week I wrote about the Babiators glasses and their awesome warranty, and you guys went nuts over the adorable I Wake Up Awesome t-shirt the child was wearing in the photo. Well, we like to find you what you like, so we did a little research and found it, plus a few more fun kids t-shirts at Three Little Numbers.   These slogans are screen printed by hand by the Ohio-based Numbers family onto really soft tri-blend t-shirts (sorry, not organic at this point) that will keep their shape, even for kids who tend to stretch their clothes out.

Jacadi fall fashion is here. Ooh la la, will your kids look super-chouette.

Still doing your back-to-school shopping? Well, we are. And even if we thought we were done, we always make an exception when we stumble onto those one or two special pieces that we just know will be loved all year. So we’re so delighted to welcome back Jacadi US as a sponsor, which makes that very thing. In fact, their gorgeous-as-always boys and girls clothes include so many of those special pieces this season, we’re having trouble paring it down. So we didn’t. This season’s collection takes inspiration from Parisian stripes, London cable knits and plaids, Scottish prints, and timeless details like...

A onesie almost as fierce as the baby wearing it.

Lately we’ve seen a lot of quotes misattributed to Shakespeare, but this great one from A Midsummer Night’s Dream is the real deal: Though she be but little she is fierce. And we love it on these onesies and tees from mod & mini on BRIKA.   This is such a cool new baby gift; no matter what size she is, we’re betting she’s got a fierce set of lungs. Or get it for a toddler who’s got a spirited personality. (So pretty much all of them, right?) My only teensy gripe? I wish the sizes went up to...
