The sweet bees and floral print are perfect and would look great in any nursery!

Izzy and Ferd | Autumn 2016 "Silk Road"

Megan SandersonComment

Joe and Cindy Pulido founded Izzy & Ferd because they believe in the power of clothes to tell stories. Stories about who we are and who we want to be. Their kidswear collections become portals to real and imagined worlds. In one world, your child transforms into Jack from "Jack and the Beanstalk". In another world, she becomes one half of Lewis from "Lewis and Clark". No matter what the adventure, Izzy and Ferd's clothes are designed to withstand the journey.

This Fall, they take your little explorers on a trip along the Silk Road. Travel on a camel caravan and enter the city of X'ian to unveil the earthen faces of the Terracotta Army. See what Marco Polo would have seen on his journey.

Their hope is that your little explorers are inspired to embark on their own adventures - no matter where the path may lead them. This Silk Road collection launched on August 15th at 9 AM PST. 

Leslee Mitchell featuring Chrissy Powers

Megan SandersonComment

Being a mother to boys, we understand just how much boys love their cars and trucks. When we came across Leslee Mitchell's Matchbox series, we were floored! We are always on the hunt for cool decor for our boys rooms so you can imagine our excitement when we discovered these gems. Our contributor, Chrissy Powers, captured her little guys at home with these super fun prints. From the sweet little matchbox pile up print to the amazing Ford Bronco, we think it's safe to say -  we're obsessed!!

 Leslee's Matchbox Car Series was inspired by her lifelong love for cars coupled with her fascination with macro photography. Visit her shop here to order prints from her gorgeous collection of work. Orders over $100 will receive 20% off with code 'LESLEELOVESMINI'.

Tutu Du Monde | @Lizzyography

Megan SandersonComment

Capturing the spirit, innocence and freedom of childhood, the essence of Tutu Du Monde shines through in their exquisite pieces – from the signature tutus to seasonal capsule collections featuring perfectly coordinated items such as headdresses, jewellery, capelets and ballet slippers. Celebrating the imaginations of little (and big) girls all over the world, a Tutu Du Monde garment is truly unique – just like its wearer – and is perfect for all occasions, from playing dress-ups to flower girl.

Reminiscent of ethereal French ballet costumes, all Tutu Du Monde garments are of the highest quality, hand-crafted and hand-dyed with an old-world feel… dusty pastels, silk ties, sparkly sequins, crystal beads and wisps of feathers applied to the softest natural cotton, finest tulle and silk organza. Tutu Du Monde pieces are divinely comfortable, with a focus on simple, timeless designs, breathable, lightweight fabrics, and with stretch and softness. They are made to last and become more lovely with wear as slight fading and fraying edges adds to their charm.

At the heart of Tutu Du Monde is a sense of pure joy. Quite simply, little girls blossom when they step into a Tutu Du Monde garment and begin to daydream!

noni bee

Megan SandersonComment

 When artist, turned midwife, turned mom, turned noni bee founder, Peri's, daughter was born, she wanted her to have original, comfortable clothing that had personality while not being too girly or fussy.  Becoming  frustrated by the available options, she learned to sew and made most of her clothing herself. Peri fell in love with the process and drew upon her fine arts background to create pieces for her that they both loved and felt good about.  She always wants the clothing she gives to her daughter – whether it be sewn or purchased – to be high quality and ethically made, and she wants it to fit for more than one season.  Peri created noni bee with these same ideals in mind– long-lasting, natural, sustainable clothing with personality.

We can't get enough of these sweet pieces! Everything is so fun and bright. Perfect for little girls. Shop the collection here.

Gray Label | Fall 2016

Megan SandersonComment

Can you believe Fall is right around the corner? Neither can we! While we are sad to say goodbye to long Summer days, we are thrilled at the though of cooler temps and snuggling up in cozy Autumn pieces (especially these AMAZING pieces from the new Gray Label range). Gray Label is introducing a gorgeous new color this season called "Red Earth" so naturally their new collection is titled " The Untamed Red Earth".

We are loving this long sleeved striped tee, made from soft organic jersey cotton, this casual top has an all-over striped pattern. Designed for everyday wear, it has a relaxed fit with neat long sleeves and a wide boat neckline.

Made from the softest 100% organic cotton Italian fleece, Gray Label's jumpsuits are also always a favorite around here.

When I need my fix for cute clothes for my littles, I head to Ziraffe. I love the design details of the site, and I adore the attention that its fellow SF Bay Area founder and super-entrepreneur mom puts into the curated collection of ethically sourced, organic and premium quality kids clothing brands from around the world.

Thimble Collection featuring @ElzaPhotographie

Megan Sanderson1 Comment

Summer days are in full swing and we are so happy to have discovered the darling Thimble Collection! This lovely company wants to dress children in clothing that’s beautiful, functional, comfortable and high-quality. Carrying girls and boys sizes 0-4, they want their pieces to last even as your kids grow (and grow and grow). Thimble's look celebrates children while appealing to parents as well. Their fabrics are soft and comfortable. Small details allow each piece to grow with your children and make your job a little easier, trading annoying snaps for zipper closures to make diaper changing faster and easier!

Each garment is constructed in the US by a mother (or father!) crafting each piece with the care she would give an item for her own child. Working from home, Thimble's experienced seamstresses are able to be with their children while providing for them financially. This means that you can enjoy pieces of the highest quality for your family while helping support American families. Awesome!

Megan SandersonComment

Owner and Designer of Fawn & Cub, Becky Carter Mingle, started Fawn + Cub because there was a need for functional baby products that still had personality. With her Native American background lending to her love of southwestern Navajo-style textiles, as well as her passion for Sustainability blending the two materials was a given. She has created products that allow you to change in style, while keeping the environment in mind.

Their Yucca Mat is the perfect addition for your new little partner in adventure! Use it in the house for quick easy changes or roll it up and bring it along on your beach, river or mountain adventures.
