Fashionkins // Summer is HERE!

It’s here! Sweet summertime has finally arrived in New York City and with it, all of the amazing kid-approved SS15 pieces (Ella begged her mother for one of these Stella McCartney swimsuits for her birthday!) that we’ve been drooling over for months. Grab the beach ball, throw on your Natives and embrace the fun!

I recently took my boys to our local strawberry fields where we got to pick fresh strawberries. It was so cute to see Christian, Carter and Cruz walking and helping each other find the perfect strawberry. Cruz did more eating then picking and at the end of our trip had left a little strawberry trail on the ground behind him (and on his mouth and outfit ).

Do you go pick local fruit or veggies somewhere? Do you plant your own garden?

Lil' Stylekins // Lounging Threads

As a stay at home mom, the majority of our time is spent at home. I am not much of a homebody, but between cleaning, cooking and keeping up with the house, I am forced to spend time indoors. Because Kaylee has not started school yet, she has been my sidekick at home for the past 4 years. It’s always nice to have threads to wear when lounging that still make you feel somewhat fashionable in your daily life. I am constantly in search of clothes that are both comfortable and practical for being at home (since that’s where we spend the majority of our time). I specifically look for two things when shopping for her clothes- the fit, and the fabric. It must be soft and movable. This is one of my daughters favorite jumpsuits because of how soft the velvet feels on her skin. My favorite part of these types of pieces is how well they transition from comfortable to fashionable, with just a few simple accessories!
