back-to-school giveaway #6!

Lark and Loon is an amazingly cool children’s clothing company full of one-of-a-kind, artist commissioned pieces for kids age 2-12. I love the age span because it’s so hard to find something age appropriate for P, as most kid lines don’t go up to her size, and the designs are so great for any age. Not only that, Lark and Loon donates a portion of their profits to Americans For The Arts, which we love, of course. Lark and Loon…

customizable t-shirts for kids.

All kids have their own adorable way of pronouncing words when they first learn to speak. For example, my niece used to call her pacifier a “binkifier”, my nephew called helicopters “hockolers”, and my very own C still refers to any passing firetruck as a “woo woo woo”. So how cute is it that you can get a shirt with your own child’s translation of everyday words? Love it. Translation Tee. $30 {short sleeve} {via Temporary Language} Here’s how it…

cute shoes for kids.

Clara, $40 Am I the last mom on the block to know about the adorable shoes from See Kai Run? I’m now singing their praises. It seems that toddler shoes readily available on the market (especially for boys) are too often bulky and without character. Not these from See Kai Run, which are obviously designed by a mom with an eye for style, function and comfort. All shoes are made of leather and are sturdy yet flexible, blessedly shoe-lace free…

rufflebutt.

When I was three I had a favorite pair of tights. They were ribbed white tights with ruffles on the bum, and they were the cutest things you’ve ever seen. Sometimes I wore them with a dress, sometimes I wore them alone. I held onto them for years and pulled them out from time to time just to see what I was missing. Aqua RuffleButt.$17. When P was born I was determined to find a pair of ruffled something. I…
