The hip, historical t-shirts for kids we’re obsessed with right now

Like the rest of the country, I’ve been a little Hamilton-obsessed lately. So when I found these hip, historical t-shirts for kids at Wee Rascals that have that same hip, historical bent as the musical that’s on everyone’s mind these days, I knew I had to share. And with President’s Day coming up next week, I have the perfect excuse to order these for my own kids.

OMG! American Apparel is closing. Here’s how to comfort yourself with 40% off.

Bad news, cool kids: American Apparel is closing their factories and basically being cannibalized and moving to Canada. So much for “designed, cut, and sewn in Los Angeles.” Yes, the company has their share of controversies, but they always did make solid basics we loved for our kids. So sad. The silver lining in all this is a 40% off sale that can help you grab some great basics for women, men and kids. But you’ve got to hurry! I poked around the site to see what’s what. For women, you’ll want to check out the ongoing sale on tees, leggings, dresses, and more....

The game-changing winter fleece pullover for kids. Who knew there was such a thing?

Trying to get your toddler to quit squirming long enough for you to wriggle on a pair of mittens is basically a parenting rite of passage. One much easier said than done. Which is why I’m so impressed with the lightweight kids’ fleece pullover with mittens attached I tried out from the new-ish parent-run business EtS Apparel. Because these waterproof mittens zip on at the wrists, getting them on is as easy as putting on a shirt. Okay, so it’s still somewhat of a challenge. But I’ll take an innovation that makes it even a little easier for me. Related: 6 fantastic pairs of kids’ winter boots on sale right now. Hurry! I’ve actually...

Rockets of Awesome: The clothing subscription box for kids that is, well, awesome.

I admit I am very skeptical of subscription boxes of clothing like Stitchfix (we published a terrific, brutally honest she said/she said post on it that’s worth a read) since I have very particular tastes and I tend to know what shapes I can wear and what I can’t. So, no surprise, my kids also have very particular tastes and I have had yet to try one of the new trends in boxes of clothing for kids — until Rockets of Awesome, which was founded by former Cricket’s Circle CEO and mom, Rachel Blumenthal. Mamas? I am a total convert. They sent me a credit...

Bring on the bling with these 7 metallic and jewel-toned coats for kids.

I don’t know about the rest of the country, but down here in Nashville we went from about 80-degree days to 30-degree mornings overnight. And before I knew it, I was fumbling through our coat closets to pull out last year’s jackets for the kids to bundle up in on their way to school. And now, I’m scanning all of my favorite shops online to find some great deals on new winter coats for this year — since the 3/4 length arms on last year’s coats won’t quite cut it when the really cold weather hits. Since winter weather can be so dreary...

Epic tees for epic teens and tweens, designed by epic teens and tweens. Epic.

One of the hardest things about buying clothes for my tween is that she wants to look grown-up, but the clothes made for teens are too often high on price and low on, uh, coverage. And the message isn’t always one I want to promote, like those “Math is hard” shirts that keep popping up like a negative self-esteem whack-a-mole game. Luckily, we’ve found a great company in California with clothes and accessories we think are perfect for our tweens and teens — because they’re designed and curated by actual tween and teen girls.

The very cool new color-your-own dress for kids could be the hit of the holidays

Who knew coloring would have become such a huge trend in 2016?Maybe it’s a welcome break from so much screen time or just a way to keep ourselves sane in a crazy year. Because now our girls can even color in their own clothes, with the Christmas-themed Tons of Fun Color-in Dress by Who’s Little? for ModCloth. Do you know how much I would have freaked out over a color-your-own coloring book dress when I was a kid? I’m pretty sure my daughter will too.

Doodle leggings: Just another reason why it’s awesome to be a kid.

I like to stock my daughter’s wardrobe with lots of leggings when the weather gets cooler. She can wear them under anything from dresses to long sweaters, and they’re definitely way more comfy than jeans. So, I spent a couple hours clicking through some of favorite shops to see what’s trending this fall, and I couldn’t help but be drawn to (ha) the doodle leggings that are everywhere, indie shops to big box stores alike. From unicorns to mushrooms to word play, these doodle leggings for kids are clearly revealing everything that captures their very vivid imaginations. And, really, they’re just so fun.

The smartest pair of leggings your kid will ever wear.

When we say these leggings are smart, we don’t just mean they hold up well after washing. Although they are well-made and do hold up to repeated washings without shrinking, fading, or losing shape, what really impresses us are the amazingly cool, creative, intellectual designs — famous works of art, strong women of history, philosophers. Who wouldn’t want to wear the periodic table on their rear? Smarty Pants are the geniuses behind these clever, cultured leggings for kids ages 6 months to 3 years. These designs go way beyond unicorns, stripes, and polka dots (which we love, too!). There’s Shakespeare, Virginia Woolf, and Bell...
