Benetton Fall Winter 2013

autumn13_kid_look_28This 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.

autumn13_toddler_look_08I’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,

H&M Back to School Tops for $5

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.

Vacation Outfits for Tweens

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,

Stylin’ in Poland

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.

What My 2 Year Old is Wearing This Spring


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:

Outfit number 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.

Outfit #2

Outfit #2Do 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…

Outfit #3:

Outfit #3Pants 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:

Outfit #4

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.
