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...

12 adorable winter jackets to keep your kids warm and dry: Reader Q & A

Hey, Cool Mom Picks: Any good recommendations for a waterproof winter jacket for my preschooler? I’m starting to realize it’s probably going to get cold on the East Coast fast! Thanks! – Leah, via the Cool Mom Picks Facebook page   Hi Leah! I totally feel your pain. I have been searching for the most-awesome winter jacket for my son and engaged in the online equivalent of window shopping for several hours. Some days, my job is really hard. To help me narrow down my options, I considered three things: Style, warmth, and quality. I love coats that look awesome, but they also have to keep kids warm enough to...

Olivia comes to Gymboree, and now dressing like a pig is the best compliment ever.

I’m looking at the brand new Olivia for Gymboree collection of girls clothes (6mo-12y) that just launched today, and I must say, it’s all pretty darn cute. While I’m not always a fan of kids’ cartoon characters all over my children’s clothes, when it’s a beloved character from a great book — and I mean an actual book, not the book that came from the TV show that came from the movie — I can justify it a little better. In other words, Oliva > Dora. (It’s my own weird thing, I know.) Since my own tween girls grew up on...

Because they’re our newest sponsor and we love that.  Hey, any site that saves us money pretty much all the time, is a cool pick as far as we’re concerned. You can shop by store, by the best deals, by exclusives, or even search by category on the site (a feature that was new to us) to see hot items you might be looking for — like Converse...

Trend alert: Snow Leopards. They’re everywhere.

This time last year, our kids were all about foxes, probably because The Song That Will Not Be Mentioned was playing on repeat in our homes. While woodland animals are still a favorite with my kids, I’m noticing one animal obsession rising above the rest—snow leopards. My kids see them as cuddly cats with cool fur, so I don’t blame them for ooh-ing at some of the fun snow leopard fashion we’re seeing around our local boutiques.     You’ll find the Schneelepoard Graphic Tee from Tea Collection in their boys department, but that’s not going to stop our girls from pairing it with black leggings and...
