Outfit of the Week


Untitled design-7

We’re in love with this active-style outfit from the 365 Kids From Garanimals line this season! The two-fer tank has a stylish layered look featuring knots on the straps, and a fun glitter “Popstar” graphic that really “pops” on the black background. The bike shorts are stretchy and comfortable for girls who love to run, jump, and play, and feature colorful studs on the bottom. Summer is almost here!

This outfit of the week is from our summer collection for infant/toddler boys. The camouflage print of the woven cargo shorts is very on trend, and there are side pockets so your little one can carry items with him. A ribbed waistband provides comfort during any activity. The bright orange color of the tee is a nice pairing with the printed shorts, and the “loud croc” graphic is cool for a big boy feel! A perfect outfit for spring or summer.

Mother’s Day Shopping on Etsy


I love when my family gives me unique gifts for Mother’s Day. Whether it be a handmade item that my boys made or a handpicked item someone else made, it always holds a special place in my heart. I love Etsy because you can buy things that are unique, and it has that craft fair or boutique shopping feel, as well as TONS of items to choose from!

I also love to pick some favorite things that my husband can help the boys purchase for Mother’s Day, my birthday, Christmas or just because! I keep an Etsy “wish list” that has lots of great gift ideas from artisans all over the world.

It’s Easy to Buy Green with GoodGuide

goodguide pic

Looking to do your part to help be kind to the earth? How do you know which products are greener than others or what company is rated better in terms of ethics and safety?

What if there was an easy way to look up a product and find out if it is organic, fragrance-free, or produced using best practices like fair trade, recycled material, or honoring human rights? is a website that can give you all of this important information about thousands of products, from diapers to laundry detergent to pet food to cars. Using a ratings system, their team of environmental scientists evaluate the products on a scale of 1 to 10 so you can easily tell which products make good sense environmentally, and which ones you might think twice about.

The site is very easy to use and provides lots of good information. You can customize the criteria to reflect the categories that mean most to you, whether it’s health, environment or social responsibility. And if you use the mobile app, you can scan the product code in the store and know right away if the item fits the bill. If you install the transparency filter on your web browser, it will reveal the GoodGuide rating of any item you shop for online.

This is pretty handy stuff and very enlightening. Get the real scoop on the product’s footprint, not just the marketing babble.

Happy Earth Day!

Outfit of the Week – Easter



Easter is this Sunday and it’s the perfect time to consider what you’re going to have your little ones wear. They’ll be running around looking for easter eggs and playing with family or friends, so it’s important that they feel comfortable, but look holiday appropriate at the same time. These two outfits are perfect for Easter, one of the most colorful holidays of the year! The boys outfit consists of khaki cargo shorts (you can go with pants if it’s cooler in your area), and a nice white polo with blue and green stripes. The girls outfit features an adorable ruffle scooter with a colorful polka dot tee. Add a sweater, and even a pair of leggings to go under it if it’s chilly.

You can find these items in Walmart stores or on!
