We’re getting into the swing of spring! Most of our spring line is now in stores and on Walmart.com, so we want to show off all the fun, new styles! This outfit is perfect for the transition from winter to spring. Tye-dye jeggings have a funky ’70s vibe, and the pink and orange colors are bright and fun. Because all the attention is on the pants, the solid orange top makes for a nice combination and the lace tiers are a pretty, feminine accent. What do you like best about this outfit?

This outfit comes in a variety of colors and can be purchased in Walmart stores and on Walmart.com.

Two-Piece Ruffle Tee and Jegging Set

Cute Clothes That Reflect Kids’ Latino Heritage

I recently got a super cute T-shirt that says “Se habla Spanglish” which loosely translates as “Spanglish is spoken here” and I always get complimented when I wear it. That got me thinking about cute clothes for kids that reflect either their bilingualism or their cultural heritage. Believe it or not, there’s a lot of really cool stuff out there for bilingual/bicultural kids. I think these are perfect for your little ones or to give as a baby shower gift.

Check them out:

Dos Borreguitas: Besides the “Se Habla Spanglish” you see in the photo, this online boutique has a nice variety of baby onesies and T-shirts for kids that are worth checking out. I love the piñata party tee.

Los Pollitos Dicen: Using the name of a popular children’s song in Spanish, this online store has a selection of clothes for babies and kids that uses little chicks as a design. My favorite one is the “Feliz Cumpleaños” or happy birthday one.

Latin Baby USA: This online boutique sells a variety of products specifically geared toward Latin babies. From bilingual toys to diapers bags, you’re sure to find the perfect gift. I think the newborn gift set, which comes with a bodysuit, a bib and a matching cap with words like “Preciosa” and “La Reina” are a must-have.

Hola Baby: You’ll find T-shirts in Spanish for toddlers and kids in this online store. I particularly like the tees for boys, particularly the one that says “mijo” (or my son) with two cute owls sitting on a bench.

Do you know of any others?

Changing of the Clothes

As spring approaches I am thinking about one thing:

Cleaning out my boys closets.

I dread this task every Spring and Fall. It does bring the fun task of shopping with it, but getting to that point takes so much work.

First, I have to take everything out of the closets and drawers and decide it it even fits. My boys have always had growing spurts in January and February. This has me crossing my fingers that we can pull off the clothes we already have until the warmer weather hits.

Plus, my boys want nothing to do with trying on clothes. So, I have to make good choices about what clothes we will actually try.

Second, I have to pack away the clothes that we no longer need or don’t fit. I never am ready for this task like I should be. If I were organized I would have totes ready to go and labeled. Typically I am throwing stuff in extra laundry baskets until I buy some more totes at the store.

Third, I have to make tough choices. How many winter items should I leave out? Will my youngest son fit in a new size of clothes which means I need to find that tote in the basement? Then I need to wash all the packed away clothes. Did I mention that laundry isn’t my favorite household chore?

The final step is deciding what needs to be purchased for the new season. This is the start of the fun part!  My oldest son is easy – whatever doesn’t fit he needs new stuff. There is nothing to be passed down. The younger one is a little trickier; navigating passed down clothes, current clothes, and some updated clothing.

Wish me luck….. I am going to be up to my ears in boys clothing for the next week. That does mean one thing though, after a long winter, Spring is finally on its way!
