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.

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...

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.

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...
