13 sparkly holiday dresses for girls: Bring on the dazzle!

If your family’s holiday schedule is anything like mine, and you have daughters, you know why I’m looking for sparkly holiday dresses for girls right now. I have a calendar full of holiday parties, recitals, school concerts, and a gazillion other special events coming up, all excuses for my daughter to get fancy. But with a budget that doesn’t allow for a whole wardrobe of holiday dresses, I’ve been searching for a fun, sparkly dress that she can wear more than once, from holiday parties to New Year’s Eve with lots of playdates and family visits in between. CMP is an rstyle affiliate Related: 2016 Holiday...

5 creative American flag t-shirts for kids that look perfect all year long.

In honor of Flag Day today, which commemorates the adoption of the American Flag, I rounded up some of my favorite interpretations  of American flag t-shirts for kids. I know that when I was a kid, I absolutely adored my denim vest printed with the stars and stripes, which I proudly wore on every occasion with even a hint of national significance or appreciation. So I imagine plenty of kids today feel that way too. What I love most about these t-shirts is that rather than just celebrating the American flag itself, they’re reminding us that it’s a symbol of all the things that make America special: Peace, love, acceptance, diversity. And since this...

Modern floral Easter dresses for girls: 8 picks our girls love as much as we do

Easter is coming, and for my daughter, that means Easter dresses. She can’t wait to pick out a new dress that she’ll feel beautiful — and comfortable — in. For her, that means a more modern Easter dress, without smocking or seersucker or itchy crinoline. No lace, no frills, no rows of buttons or baubles — she wants something simple that she can run around in. Related: 8 flattering fit and flare dresses that curvy women can wear this spring And hey, I’d like an Easter dress that she can wear the rest of the spring too. So I’ve put together 8 bright, cheery, floral, modern Easter...

Beautiful holiday party clothes your kids can wear all winter long

We love dressing our kids up for the holidays, but there’s something satisfying about picking clothes that they can wear beyond the parties and special events already crowding the calendar. That’s why we’re so happy to be working with our sponsor eden + zoe again. We’ve been huge fans of the lovely cashmere knitwear brand created by mom and designer Melissa Wang for so many years. This season, she’s added a gorgeous baby and toddler line, so you lucky parents of little ones get a chance to experience these truly amazing pieces. We’ve seen them in person and wow, they’re super soft...

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...

9 adorably modern Easter dresses for girls, all under 50.

When I look around for girls’ Easter dresses, there’s a whole lot of smocking and seersucker and box pleats and classic peter pan collars. Which can be utterly adorable, of course. (Is any little girl not super cute when she’s all dressed up? Exactly.) Even so, not everyone is quite so traditional or dressy on Easter. So I thought I’d put together a few more modern options for Easter dresses for girls that are all pretty without being fussy. I love all nine of these dresses — the shapes, the colors, the patterns,  the styling. The best part: They’re all under $50. So maybe...

Up to 50% off the most gorgeous clothes to get our kids through winter. We’ll take it!

Winter officially started just only a week ago, which means we’ve still got plenty of cold weather ahead for sweaters and hats and outerwear to wrap the kids in. We know, we can’t believe it either. And if your kids are anything like ours, they like to grow. Often right in the middle of the season. Which is why we’re always grateful for awesome sales on kids’ clothes, so we can score the stuff we need for less, just when we need it. So we’re cheering once again for our wonderful sponsor Jacadi and their huge winter sale, where you’ll find some of...

11 hot holiday dresses, all under $100. For real.

When you think hot holiday dresses, you probably imagine your budget flying out of the window. And if you’re like me, you’d rather save the money for holiday gifts and not necessarily drop a couple hundred dollars on a dress you might only wear once or twice. Of course, you could always rent a fabulous holiday dress on Rent the Runway, but for close to the same price, you could snag a stylish dress for yourself that you’ll wear for New Year’s or even way beyond the holiday season. Here, I rounded up 10 hot (and dare I say...

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...

The most impressive handmade Halloween masks on Etsy. Who gets the best candy now?

I tend to think that making my kids’ Halloween costumes is a great idea. I also tend to be wrong. Not only does it always take way much time than I have, but it can end up being every bit as expensive as buying something. My 9-year-old is feeling like maybe a full costume isn’t cool anymore, so this year I’m helping him plan a simple Halloween costume around a really exquisite mask like these gorgeous handmade Halloween masks I’ve been admiring on Etsy for the last few weeks. As for my daughter, she still wants an elaborate costume, but maybe she can...

Thus, the cashmere shrug for girls was born.   – Don’t miss an exclusive discount for our readers below! – Designed in collaboration with professional ballerina and celeb fitness guru Mary Helen...

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.
