I have a new favorite store in Santa Fe: Modern General. It has quality gardening and kitchen tools, but it also serves as a lunch and meeting space. And their smoothies are so good. And super healthy.
I was surprised to see Hartwood here, a cook book from a restaurant in Tulum, Mexico. I’m kind of Tulum obsessed and I had seen the book mentioned on Instagram. So cool to find it here.
It’s a good place to bring kids. My youngest felt really comfortable here. And she liked that healthy smoothie, too. So now I’m thinking I need the recipe for my picky 12 year old who never eats vegetables.
I love when a store owner puts so much thought into design and purpose. If you find yourself in Santa Fe, be sure to check it out. It is not too far from the plaza and the train station.
Have a great day,

Children’s fashion to me is as much about the art and creativity as it is about the clothes. Kids are so fun and natural; I find that you can be much more creative with them. With kids you don’t have to take yourself so serious. Poppy England is a perfect example. Their shoot is fun and quirky and has a story book feel to it. In fact each dress comes with a book about Poppy and Fred’s chocolate shop. The story is also written on the hem of the dresses. How cool is that?!
Take a look.
I love how they wrapped the entire shop in brown paper. The make up is too cute! I like how they combined the printed dresses with striped leggings. The yellow tutu in the 4th picture is my favorite.
What do you think? Does this make you want to do your own photo shoot, or is it too much?
Have a great weekend, I can’t wait to see you back here on Monday!

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)

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.
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,
I have been obsessed with stripes for a while, and I really like polka dots. Combine the two in mother and daughter outfits on the streets of Paris and this is what you get…
Do you ever match your outfits with your children?
If you like the styling in this photo shoot go to Ilona Jongepier. Her portfolio is quite impressive.
Have a lovely day,
Lately I have been drawn to Italian photo shoots. Beautiful scenery combined with old world charm. That is definitely true for this one. Dolce and Cabbana shot this summer collection in Sicily, which looks a lot like the coast of Croatia, where I spend many summers growing up. Take a look.
Beautiful, isn’t it? Makes me wish, I could go there this summer…
Have a lovely weekend, and stay warm.
Have you seen the Oilily summer collection? Pretty fantastic in my opinion. They are going with vibrant floral prints this summer, also pairing pastels with neon and deep reds. Take a look.
As always I appreciate the art they put into their shoots. Love the props they used like the gigantic pear. I wouldn’t mind putting the toddler dress on my 2 year old. Or the yellow skirt with printed red flowers on my 4 year old.
Have a fun filled, colorful day! How can you not after looking at these pictures…
