Small Shop Love: Love Is Free

Good Morning! Thank you all for your kind words yesterday, and support while my husband underwent a minor procedure. Many of you have been asking what it was for, and although I’m not yet ready to answer questions, I will in a few weeks. To be quite honest, I can’t answer many questions because we still don’t know ourselves what’s going on, and yesterdays procedure was to hopefully clear up some of those unknowns for us. We live a very honest, open-book lifestyle, so you can bet that this won’t be the last time you hear me talk about it all…within his comfort level, of course. :-)

On with todays fun! I want to introduce you to my newest sponsor, Love Is Free! Shannon, the owner and creative mind behind the company, is a mom to her beautiful daughter Angelina who inspires her to create unique and modern children’s wear. Shannon is working to bring a childrens moccasin line to her shop in the coming weeks as well!

Many of you have already spied a few of these outfits over on my Instagram, as well as on @shoploveisfree and have been asking where you can score these awesome items – now you know!

SLIF14Phew! I spent hours and hours pulling clothes, styling, and photographing all those outfits so you could see these rad pieces in action. Nothing’s worse than seeing clothes without any outfit inspiration, amiright?! Totally worth it if you enjoyed, and I hope you’ll go check out Love Is Free and support Shannon and her growing store.

Little Big Dreamers

I mentioned before that Camryn’s a rep for Little Big Dreamers, and gets to play with some of their uber cute accessories and apparel. Well yesterday, instead of working on the DIY art I had mentioned, we played dress-up and shot some pics for the LBD website that launches tomorrow. Here are a few of my favorite shots :-)

Tongue Out (Outtake).jpgIt’s no secret, I’m obsessed with this girl. She was so fun to snap pictures of, and is always so silly in front of the camera. If she grows up to be a comedian, I wouldn’t be surprised in the slightest.

If you want to snag either of these adorable headbands, check out LBD’s etsy shop, or visit their new website tomorrow (I’ll update with URL).

Vacation Update & Lemons

Well, hello friends! A whole 10 days passed, and really all I’ve managed to do in that time is eat, sleep, and snuggle my nephew. It. Was. Heaven.

Gahhhh, he’s just the cutest little man, isn’t he? If I wasn’t already knocked up, I’d be in trouble, because he gave me baby fever like you wouldn’t believe! I’m literally obsessed with him, and it was so heartbreaking leaving Colorado and not knowing when I’ll see him again.

While I was on vacation I stopped in Baby Gap and scored the best little lemons bathing suit for miss Harper, and it was on sale for $5.99. I kid you not. Run, do not walk, to your nearest Baby Gap. Or better yet, buy one online and save an additional 30% with code EXTRA.

Speaking of cute lemon apparel, did you sneak a peek at my big (little) lady rocking her “Lemons Make Lemonade” tee from Kate And James? You can snag one of those darling (and super soft) tees for your own little, on sale for $20 now. They also sell onesies, and other awesome tees, and I’ve been spotting them all over IG on some fashionable kiddos like @sarahholstrom’s Tallulah & Phinn.

And if you’re having a “lemon moment” like I am lately, you’re going to need to get this Little Big Dreamers lemon headband too. If you weren’t lusting over lemon prints before today, are you now? :-)

Camryn & I will be giving some DIY art for Harper’s nursery a whirl today, so wish us luck! Hopefully I’ll have something successful to share with you tomorrow.

Happy Monday, and thanks for sticking around with me…I know I’ve been hit and miss lately, but I’m working on it.

Friday Lust List: Handmade Kids Clothing & Accessories

Hello Loves!

So many of you ask me where I buy Camryn’s clothes, shoes, and accessories, and many times the answer is Target/Old Navy/H&M, etc…but some of my favorite items from her wardrobe are the ones I find from little shops on etsy, or discover through Instagram, or word of mouth. They’re handmade, many times using organic materials, and made with love. They are the pieces that last longer than any of the clothes from the “big box retailers”, they’re very high quality, and they’re the items that I plan to pass down to my future child(ren).  I wanted to share a few of my recent favorite shops with all of you. Even if you don’t have a mini me, I’m sure you have friends and family with them, so check out these awesome shops – support small businesses – and shop my favorite items!

Day20

1.|| You saw Camryn rocking her Mason & The Tambourine dress a few days ago, as well as the grey teepee leggings. This shop is one of my newest loves, and I am definitely going to might want to buy one of everything. (My husband reads my blog, so I can’t give away too much… Hi honey! No shopping happening here.)

2.|| zuzii.com  was recently introduced to me, and I can’t stop swooning over these black & white striped sandals. Why can’t these be in my size too? Oh, and I can’t forget this bow belt, it’s too cute for words. Must. Own.

3.|| Hello Apparel is always on my radar, but I’m especially eyeing those darling heart baseball tees for Valentines.

4.|| Loola popped up on my radar recently, and I fell in love with these floral harem pants (no longer available in size 2T…wahhhhh!). The prices can’t be beat ($15 for those adorable pants)! These pants would have looked so chic with those striped sandals from Zuzii.

I’m also loving these quilted tuxedo stripe pants from Loola. :-)

5.|| House of Mia has become dangerous for me to even look at these days. These heart leggings, the little black umbrella leggings, and the tiny models in them…I want it all. 100% organic, and 100% CUTE!

6.|| Monroe & Harlow is a company I started stalking on Instagram, and now check in on daily to see what cute new designs they’ve dreamed up. My current favorite is this beautiful black & white striped band with a mint bow. Lucky you, they also carry a women’s line – check out these gorgeous turbans – I would rock one of these all the time!!

7.|| I recently made a few purchases with Grey Thread, an etsy company with quirky sayings on shirts and sweatshirts that are sure to catch attention. My favorites are “Embrace Messy Hair”, “Wild & Free”, and the funny “Jesus Saves, Bro” shirt.

8.|| Vonbon is releasing their new leggings line in early February, and I sneaked a peek and am smitten! These will quickly sell out, so mark your calendars. If you want to read more about my love affair with Vonbon, check out my full post here.

9.|| Sugarplum Lane is another shop I’ve been frequenting, and I’m currently lusting over these beauties. I’m a sucker for all things gold, but it’s the thickness and quality of sugarplum’s leggings that I love most.

10.|| No list about toddler fashion could ever be complete without mentioning Freshly Picked Moccs. You all know I love them, and my kid practically lives in them, but did you know they’ve released a radiant orchid pair in honor of the Pantone Color of the Year?! Oh yes Mamas, feast your eyes on those beauties!!! If you’re a lover of Freshly Picked like I am, check out Shark Tank tonight, and see if Susan cuts a deal with any of the sharks!

Let’s be honest, it’s hard not to love everything in teeny tiny size! Let the shopping commence. (I can say that now because there’s no way my husband’s still reading…he got lost somewhere between shoes and headbands.) :-)
