One Person Can Make A Difference…

If there is one thing I know, it’s that I love shopping for my kids! I really stocked up on tees and shorts from Nordstrom since I knew we would be coming to warm weather on vacation. I have previously showed both Emmy and Elliott’s tees on my stories because I LOVE them so much and couldn’t wait to share! I am not kidding when I say this sequin tee kept Emmy entertained for SO long! As I mentioned in the previous blog post, I love how the Mini Boden pieces all coordinate together. This skirt mixes and matches with so much! That is something I always look for when shopping for my kids’ clothes. They outgrow everything so fast, I want to get the most bang for my buck!

Okay now onto Elliott’s tee….I can’t even tell you how much I LOVE IT. We always strive to teach our children to care for and to love one another. Shirts like this serve as a reminder to all of us! Sizing wise- I bought it in a 2T which is what he can wear in other tee brands BUT this one runs quite big- as you can see in the pictures. Maybe I will let Emmy borrow it until the summer when hopefully it will fit Elliott!

Kid’s Vacation- Mixing and Coordinating Patterns

vacation

When I was planning outfits for vacation I knew I was going to shop at Nordstrom and I knew I wanted to stock up on Mini Boden pieces. I have said it before but I seriously love everything that brand puts out. They make the cutest pieces in the most adorable, fun, and bright patterns- perfect for vacation! I always seem to find one piece I really love and work the rest around it. I don’t do it intentially but it just always seems to happen that way. I saw this floral top for Emmy and immediately fell in love with the colors and pattern. I knew I would be able to mix and match a bunch of things with it, so to me, that makes a piece very appealing. I know I will get my moneys worth from it. I ended up buying this skirt for a warmer weather option and these leggings for cooler temps.

 

The other thing I love about Mini Boden is how easily I can coordinate pieces between Emmy and Elliott. They carry a lot of the same colors in both boys and girls so I can get pieces that pair well together without being too matchy matchy. You know what I mean?

 

Anyways- we took these pictures while soaking up the sun here in South Florida. It’s so nice to be able to play outside all day long! It is a luxury we definitey do not have in Maine this time of year. It won’t be this warm at home until probably July! So we are taking in all the sun we can get! Ps. I  get a lot of questions about my favorite SPF for the kiddos- I really LOVE Supergoop for them! I have been using it for a couple years now and it goes a great job!

 

What are you eyeing for your kiddos from Nordstrom this spring? The floral Mini Boden top is my favorite Emmy piece, soon I will share my favorite Elliott piece with you, stay tuned!

Purple and Unicorns…

purple and unicorns
Emmy is very particular- much like her Mummy! Two things she LOVES are the color purple and unicorns SO when I stumbled upon this purple rain coat and umbrella set, I was beyond excited! Then I found a matching rolling suitcase and I basically couldn’t order it and get it delivered fast enough! I knew she would absolutely freak when she got it and I was right! Now the issue is, Elliott has been very upset that he doesn’t ALSO have a suitcase so it looks like I will promptly be ordering him the boy versionone one. They have been fighting over using the umbrella and the suitcase NONSTOP. It’s actually gotten to be a problem. In fact, I have had to hide them in closets at times just to avoid another argument. We need to work on sharing in this house…

So if you are on the Nordstrom website and search the brand “Stephen Joseph” you will also see they make matching Nap sacks and pillows and a Rain boots and umbrella set. The prices are all very reasonable too! I am so glad I stumbled upon this new-to-me! For sizing questions- Emmy is wearing a 3T which is her size so the raincoat runs TTS. Her Hunter boots are an 8 which is also her normal shoe size and her Patagonia fuzzy jacket is a 3T as well.

Kids and Swans!

Are swans a new trend? I am seeing them everywhere these days and I just LOVE them! I was shopping the Nordstrom kids clothes as I often do (hehe!) and noticed so many pieces of swan clothing! I decided to order Emmy this dress because I knew she would love the sequin skirt! She even said she felt like a fairy princess in it! How sweet! I found Elliott this super fuzzy and coordinating sweatshirt and built their outfits from there! Also I want to mention, I have a hard time finding shoes and boots that fit on Elliott’s chunky little feet but these Ugg boots fit great! You can really open them up so you aren’t blindly jamming their foot in which is key when your child has a very high instep/fat feet like Elliott! Anyways- I hope you love their little outfits as much as I do!

How to Style Uggs- Part Two

I am back again with a couple more of my favorite Ugg boots to share with you! I saved my very favorite ones for last. Of all the department stores, Nordstrom definitely has the biggest selection. That is where I always go when looking for new boots. These two boots- the Adirondack and the Blayre are just SO GOOD. The Adirondack are really great for walking around in the snow- hiking, shoveling (ugh!) and anything else where you know you will be outside in the snow. You can also fold them own so they aren’t as tall but I prefer the taller look.
The Blayre boots are my other favorite pair. They were the first ones I got from Ugg that were not the ‘classic’ style. These are also heavy duty but a little nicer looking- less rugged (if that makes sense). If I worked in an office and had to look nice- I would definitely wear these ones to and from the office.
