kids fashion

i have to say i am not typically inclined to the stylings of the guess brand. it's just not my thing. but i was pleasantly surprised with some of their kids/baby wear for spring and summer 2011. 


i'm loving the rompers for little girlies and the stone wash denim for the boys. check out more of guess's line here

happy monday! 


what i love wednesday

i know what you're thinking. "you're just now getting into pinterest?" i think i've mentioned before that sometimes i feel as though i am living under a rock and that saying rings true once again.

i had heard of pinterest a few months ago and thought "uggghh not another social networking thing to suck up my time." i continued to put off even visiting the site despite the fact that all my bloggy friends were raving about it. 

well i finally gave in and it had me at "hello what would you like to pin today?" 

for those of you who are much like me and have no clue what pinterest is here is the lowdown from their site: 
"What is Pinterest? Pinterest is a social catalog service. Think of it as a virtual pinboard — a place where you can post collections of things you love, and "follow" collections created by people with great taste." 

 pretty much it's like a giant pin board where you can pin any awesome thing you find from any website. 


here are some images from my pinterst finds for the tiny loves . . . 


linking up with lollipops! come on over and link up your loves too!

i have been a fan of zara for about 10 years. we were first introduced when i lived in singapore many moons ago. {that's a story in and of itself. what an experience.} i remember the first time i walked into a zara i thought my eye balls would pop right out of my head. i was in fashion heaven. they had at least 7 stores in that little country that takes about 45 minutes to drive completely across and we have 0, yes 0, here in ohio. big tear. 

obviously i had no kids back then so i have no clue if they even had a children's line of clothes. all i know is they do now and it is c.u.t.e. 



my father actually shops at zara quite a bit and was told by sales representatives that they will possibly begin selling items online in the u.s. of a. very soon. let's cross our fingers!

check out the rest of their amazingness here.

kids fashion

need some fresh inspiration for your whippersnapper's wardrobe?  
{side note: when i was a kid whippersnapper was one of my favorite words. we even have an old video of me jumping in front of the camera and saying it over and over and over to the point my parents had threaten me to stop saying it. yes, i was a weird one.}

anyhoo back to some brilliant kids fashion...

enter the spring/summer collection from stella mccartney kids. nough said. 
you can start drooling . . . now. 


go shoeless

today is the one day without shoes campaign put on by toms shoes. the goal is to bring awareness to the overwhelming need for shoes in less fortunate areas of the world where many children do not even have one pair of shoes to wear. break. my. heart.  

i really love toms because not only do they host great days like today to bring awareness to this significant cause but every pair of toms shoes you buy they in return give one pair away to a child in need. it seriously doesn't get much better then that!

and a total bonus is that their shoes are so super cute. 

they even have pint size shoes called tiny toms for your little guy or gal. 

so here is my challenge for you today.  if you can, take your shoes off to help bring awareness to this amazing causeand go to toms site right now. yes, right this very second and order yourself a pair {or two} of toms to help a kid in need. 

these are my toms and i lurve them.

green baby

i'm a work in progress. concerning being 'green' that is. the area of my life where i am most green is where my daughter is involved. using organic dish soap, disinfecting wipes and not wearing perfume around her are just a few of the changes i've made. but i know i can do a lot more. for those mom's and dad's who are also interested in making smart and healthy choices for your little ones there is a great clothing company you might want to check moiche features stylish collections that are less like baby clothes and more like mini adult clothes. pieces that i myself would wear. not only do they pride themselves in their clothing not being too 'cutesy' but all of their clothing is environmentally friendly and made out of 100% certified organic cotton. 

please check out mini mioche you'll love it!

i have become infatuated with this children's line of clothes matilda jane. so glad that tayla thomforde introduced me to it! i must have a trunk show soon and i think paisley should have one of everything...

i heart these clothes. click here to see more matilda jane clothing.
