This year’s fall collection by Benetton caught my eye because of the pig they used for their photo shoot. My 7 year old Ella LOVES pigs. You might say she is pig obsessed. Take a look.
I’m liking the combination of stripes, stars, neon, and the military boots (taking me way back to my Doc Marten days). Add a little bit of fluff and frills, perfect!
You can find last year’s fall collection here.
Have a great day,
Here is the second Mimi and Maggie Dress I bought recently. I love the detail of this dress, the lace on the back. You can find the other here.
Dress: Mimi and Maggie
Sandals: Old Navy
Broom: Out of the Blue Toy Store
Have a lovely day,
Have you done your school shopping yet? If not consider H&M, they have a lot of cute tops for just $5 each. Take a look.
This is just a sample there is much more on their website. My girls would love the butterfly or the bunny top.
If you are not familiar with H&M I would describe it as the Swedish version of Old Navy. It is a one stop shop for the whole family with different styles (trendy, athletic, classic). Just like Old Navy their quality is hit or miss. But their children’s clothes tend to be pretty good quality in my experience.
To my Chicago readers, I am jealous, cause you guys have a store in the city!
Have a lovely weekend, I’ll see you back here next week.
My sister in law is graciously flying my 12 year old to California to spend two weeks with them. My Esther is sooo exited! They live about an hour and a half away from the beach and half an hour from the beautiful Napa valley. I imagine they will make one trip to the beach and a trip to Napa. But mostly they will hang out at home, at the pool, or at their grandparent’s house. Here is what I thought might be useful for going to the beach or pool.
Gap is having a great summer sale right now. Number 2, 3, and 4 are from the Gap. Number 1 and 5 are from H&M.
The next outfit would be great for a Sunday afternoon in Napa.
Gosh, she would look cute in this outfit. The dress, shoes, hat, and tote are from Zara. Zara is having a great summer sale right now as well.
I will miss her like crazy but I’m glad she gets to spend time with her cousins.
I’m a little nervous about her flying all by herself. She has flown without us before, but she always had her older brother or cousins with her.
Have a great day,
I recently found Porridge with Milk, a beautiful blog from Poland. Check out how this mom captures her stylish girls.
Top- nosweet (a new to me Polish brand)
Shorts- Kids on the Moon (also from Poland)
Headband-OkaidiVest-Petit by Sophie Schnoor
Dress- Mini Rodini
I’m always thrilled to find out about quality children’s clothing. Even more thrilled when they are made in Eastern Europe, a part of the world that used to be oppressed under Communism and is now flourishing with creativity.
I had fun doing this post. I really enjoy styling and shooting kids. Especially when they are still at an age where they let me. Hope you’ll like it.
Here is Tasha’s outfit #1:
Top is from Okie Dokie. Apparently that is a JC Pennies brand. I got it at a used children’s store called Other Mothers. This is where I trade in clothes all the time. Yellow jeans bought on sale from the Gap.
Do you see how much fun this is??
Here Tasha is wearing a dress from the Gap (recently bought on sale, of course). The socks are hand me downs probably gone through 10 kids by now…
Pants and top from the Gap. I like that the pants are stretchy and have cute pockets in the back.
Outfit #4 for Mother’s Day or other special occasions:
The dress is from Old Navy handed down from Lucille. The shoes are also hand me downs, bought at Target.
Looking at these pictures explains why she is so popular among her siblings…pretty darn cute! Great news, outfits number 1, 2, and 3 have been featured in Babiekins magazine, my favorite children’s fashion website. You can find it here.
You guys have a lovely weekend!
I’ll see you back here next week.
Happy first day of May!! I hope it is as bright and sunny for you as it is in New Mexico…
The latest Dianne von Fuerstenberg collection for the Gap caught my eye, and I thought it might perfect for the month of May, when the weather is hopefully beginning to warm up…
Take a look.
I love everything about this, the bright, geometric prints, the creative styling and props.
Have a great day!
I was cruising through winter just fine. I had my boots, skinny jeans, and enough tops to make some decent outfits. But then it got warmer right around April, and guess what, I go into my closet and cannot find anything to wear. Nada! Nothing that says spring anyway. Does this ever happen to you?
So after searching my favorite internet stores here are my top 5 picks. They can be mixed and matched and would be great for Mother’s Day, or any special occasion.
What do you think? Too preppy? I’m really liking the white pants. My husband thinks I have completely lost my mind being that we have six children who would love to leave hand prints on them…
How about you, what are you wearing this spring?
Are you ready for Easter? Do you dress up for the occasion? I have to admit every Easter and Christmas my traditionalism comes out. I fret about what my kids will be wearing weeks in advance. If money wasn’t an issue I would go straight to Mini Boden.
These timeless dresses will work for Easter, flower girls, Communion, whatever the big occasion you might have this spring. My favorite is the pink tutu and cardigan. Love the flowers in the hair idea.
Have a lovely day,
How was your weekend? Did you watch the Oscar’s? Am I the only one who didn’t know that Scarlett Johansson can sing really well???? The song she did for the documentary Chasing Ice was nominated. Beautiful!
Our friend’s, the Hollands, made a really nice Oscar worthy meal consisting of seafood pasta, cheese and wine. Couldn’t have been better…
Do you remember my post on the Belgium brand Bellerose fall collection? Here is their spring collection that is just as cute and creative. Take a look…
After all the candy colored spring collections I have seen in the stores I find Bellerose’s bold colors refreshing. I like how they layer and pair dresses with T-shirts, dressy pants with Birkenstock shoes, or a nice shirt with a hoodie.
Have a lovely day,
