Mirror, Mirror: Picture Day at School!

tiny dancer

Earlier this week was picture day at my daughter’s school – it was her first picture day every so we were both excited for the occasion. At first I was going to put a fancy dress on her but then I thought about it and since it’s a school picture I went with an outfit that was adorable but not overly dressy. Here’s what she wore from head to toe:

Headband: babyGap
Top: babyGap
Leggings: Old Navy
Shoes: Zara Kids

Seersucker for Spring!

Trends come and go but some patterns and materials are classic and never go out of style. When I think about spring fashion, I can’t help but think of seersucker. And I’m not alone! Most of the kid’s clothing stores I shop at had some type of seersucker offering for the little ones. Here are some of my favorites…

My Favorite Easter Dresses

It’s the time of year to pick out Easter bonnets and baskets and of course the perfect Easter dress to go with it.  The hardest part will be deciding on just one dress.  The usual florals and pastels are in style for spring, as well as stripes and polka dots.  The little ones will look adorable taking pictures with the Easter Bunny and searching for Easter Eggs.  Be sure to take lots of pictures!

Sneaker Wedges for Kids: Too Much Too Soon?

hello kitty sneakers sneaker wedges for kids

While I was in Las Vegas at the shoe show, I came across a booth of Hello Kitty sneakers so naturally, I was drawn to the booth. There were hundreds of new Hello Kitty styles for kids – too many pink ones for my taste though, I would have preferred to see more styles in primary colors. But pinkness aside, what really piqued my curiosity were sneaker wedges for kids.

The sneaker wedge has taken over as the “fashion” sneaker for women. While I don’t understand the concept of a sneaker wedge for women (WHY take something comfortable and make it uncomfortable?), I absolutely abhor the idea for children.

More and more our kids are growing up much faster than generations prior and I’m starting to wonder why we’re so intent on taking away childhood. Kids should be running, jumping, chasing and exploring. How is a kid supposed to do that in sneaker wedges? Would you let your child wear heels? Why are sneaker wedges any different? And don’t get me started about sexualizing little girls at younger and younger ages. Slapping Hello Kitty on the sneaker doesn’t change what it is – a heeled shoe for kids.

I know where I stand on sneaker wedges for kids. What do you think about them? Am I over-exaggerating? Too sensitive? What’s your take?

The Herschel Supply Co. has been making quality backpacks, bags and travel goods since 2009.  Now, the brand is introducing a line of backpacks just for kids.  The line features the simple design of the classic Herschel backpack and shrunk it down for the little ones.  The children’s collection of Herschel backpacks come in an array of patterns – sometimes with many different patterns on one bag.  Coming in two sizes, youth and kids, you can find a backpack for your older and little ones.  (I personally think the youth size is ok for mama’s too! )  You can find the backpacks online on the Herschel online store.

Melissa Plastic Dreams always has the cutest styles for kids and when I visited the booth I saw a few styles I hadn’t seen before.  First (and my favorite) is the Minnie Mouse collaboration featuring peep toe flats with polka dot bows.  Another favorite was the watermelon hearts and a new style that looked like a sneaker.  Check out my favorites below…
