Well, summer is on it’s way out and it’s time for the kids to go back to school – which also means it’s time to do some shopping. I remember as a kid planning all my new outfits for my return to class. Well, my Max may not really care, but I am loving doing a bit of back to school shopping for his adorable new looks for the fall. Kids are not easy on their clothes, so it’s just as well they grow out of them so quickly, although not always the best for our pocket books… Fortunately there is a great range in prices tags for back to school worthy kids clothes! Getting them dressed and ready in the morning is undoubtably a chore, so get them excited with some amazing new outfits (and you can be excited that you get your life back). Check out my favorite back to school looks for our little ones and take plenty of pictures because time sure flies…
Every now and then it happens, you need dressy kids clothes for a wedding/event where your little ones are actually invited. Time to shift the baby sitter money into a super cute outfit for your little one that is occasion appropriate that they hopefully won’t hate (we all know toddlers love to hate not the looks we love). Adorable dressy kids clothes can be quite frustrating because they may only ever where the look once before they grow out of it and get invited to another event so it’s nice when you can get things that aren’t too expensive or perhaps things that might be a little roomy now that they might be able to wear next year. Regardless, it’s important to take lots of pictures because this might be the only time you get to see them in their dressy kids clothes until christmas! Girls get the run of pretty princess dresses ( that aren’t actually Elsa costumes) which they will surely love but my secret to dressing my little guy is to find him mini versions of what his dad might be wearing… Turns out he can tell when I really want him to wear something (and so wants to fight me on it) but if he sees dad wearing it… Check out some of my favorite dressy kids clothes for all those summer occasions (where they’ve actually gotten an invite) and prepare for cuteness overload.

So we’ve talked about what bathing suits we’re going to brace this summer but it’s the kids swimwear that really makes me happy because it’s so darn cute and doesn’t make me want to put down my jelly doughnut. Little mini swim trunks and bikinis – who can resist? So first thing on my list is to schedule some swim lessons for my little guy, and next the search for adorable kids swimwear because ’tis the season. Whether they’ll be hitting the beach, the pool or just the park it’s time to slather them up with sunblock and bathing suit so small they would barely fir over my ankles. Check out some of my favorite kids swimwear for summertime and let them get there cute on.

With trips to the beach, parks and pools on the agenda it’s time to free your little ones feet and indulge in some kids sandals. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I am a shoe addict and not just for myself – my little guy has a healthy supply and the hot weather is just another excuse to shop for him.

Honestly, kids summer clothes are by far my favorite – they adorable mini me style makes me long for a little girl, but don’t worry about me I’m having plenty of fun dressing up my little guy! From little summer dresses to shorts and tees the cuteness overload in in full effect. I just love seeing my little Max running around in his shorts and tanks like it makes sense – because it does and his little summer clothes wardrobe makes me insanely happy. They’ve got to stay cool and look cool in the heat, and even though most everything gets covered in mud, grass stains and popsicles – it’s totally worth it. Check out some of my favorite kids summer clothes because they are SO much cuter than ours…

I have a true addiction to kids shoes – I mean, I love shoes anyway, but when they come all miniature and adorable, I cannot stop myself. I don’t know if this is a good thing or a bad thing since my little man keeps growing out of his shoes at an alarming rate – this is hard because I am left with shoes he’s never even worn, BUT I have an excuse to keep on buying more shoes. These insanely cute kids shoes include everything from rain boots to doc martins and sneakers to sandals, and while he might get more enjoyment trying on my shoes (or my husbands) and waddling around the house, I get enormous pleasure in getting hims the latest and greatest mini me shoes (okay, not mini ME as much as just mini – no heels for him). These little ones need shoes, so may as well find the most adorable ones, right? So check out my favorite kids shoes – Max has just grown out of size 8 so I’m on the hunt and springtime is coming!

Our little ones grow up so fast so there’s a constant need for new cute kids clothes. I like to make new purchases at the beginning of each new season so they have time to grow into things and where them for as long as possible. So, this post is for everyone looking for some insanely cute kids clothes to transition their little ones from now to spring/summer. The weather will be warm soon enough so time to start considering what they’re going to be wearing to the park when the sun starts to peek out. Check out some of my favorite cute kids clothes to get your kids in style for spring!

So, last week I talked about hearts but this week I need to address the fabulosity that are star prints. There’s definitely been a bit of galactic inspiration both in women’s fashion and, of course kidswear lately. As I sit here my little Max is singling twinkle twinkle little star, holding a wand and dressed in head to toe stars down to his wellie boots and I want to join the star print party. There’s a beautiful whimsy to stars and they walks the line of being both cool and sweet. The great pattern in the sky always serves as inspiration both in life and art so it’s no surprise that star prints should emerge as a favorite among that fashion set. The Saint Laurent collections have been full of star prints in recent season so I’m thinking it might be time to incorporate it into my wardrobe too. So as my little one points up in to the sky shouting “Star! Star!” I feel the urge to find some printed pieces myself. Bags, shoes, clothes – these star prints are always fabulous and it’s time to add some twinkle to my look.

So yesterday I talked about my birthday and jewelry, well, with Valentines Day moment away I wanted to focus on love motifs in fashion that withstand trends and time. Everything from the iconic Cartier love bracelet to the word love and all the hearts that emphatically infiltrate our wardrobes (as well as our little ones). Reminiscent for the free love 60′s moment the love motifs reign supreme, and why not – perhaps all we need is more love in this world. Yes, camo and skull prints will alway be popular prints,but make no mistake, love is the yin to their yang and it’s nice to put as much as possible into the world – so I happily wear it on my sleeve! Check out some of my favorite love motifs and spread the love this valentines season (and all year round really).
