palm tree breezes

Take us anywhere but here! As usual, we have our sights set on warmer temps, no socks and sunnies. That’s right folks, palm tree breezes. We hope you enjoy what we are dreaming of styling in a few months (or maybe if you are hitting a beach for a little vaca…)…

 We’re loving the flamingo fad. So fun and the image really does transplant you to a beach-y vacation spot. Also, we will always love the traditional stripe-y patterns for resort-wear. You can’t go wrong and they transition so well to the summer/fall months. Check out what we’ve rounded up:

*Also a quick follow-up on the Twig Creative Wooden Toy Camera that was featured in the orginal “in my Easter bonnet” post last Monday 3.24.14. The Easter Bunny may be adding it to Lucy’s basket (and since it arrived last week) it is SUCH an adorable toy! It also doubles as an accessory! There will be lots of great “Say Cheese!” moments with this one for sure…

cheers to st. patrick

My mind is now set on Lucy’s St. Patrick’s Day outfit. (Apologies for not sharing her Valentine’s outfit…turns out she didn’t even wear it because she was sick…So we hung out in our cozies all day). Check out what I found to keep your little paddies in the LUCKY mood…

oh mr. sun, sun, mr. golden sun…

…please dont shine down too hard on me now!

la la la

Don’t think I’m crazy…but its time to start buying (not only thinking) about your son or daughter’s beach/pool wardrobe. You don’t want to wait too long to buy their swimsuits and rash guards because the cute and decently-priced options tend to sell out sooner than we’d like. Below are some of my top picks – I stuck to neutrals in this post to make it easy when pairing with swim trunks/bikini bottoms/bathing suits , but you must know that most of these sites have other whimsical options that would be really fun…

Gap Kids Dot Rash Guard Two-Piece, $22.95-

Lands End Boys’ Long-Sleeve Hooded Rash Guard, $28-

Sunuva Girls Rash Vest, $59.09-

Lands End Boys’ Long-Sleeve Solid Rash Guard, $24-

LL Bean Girls’ Sun-and-Surf Shirt, Long-Sleeve, $26.95-

Sunuva Boys Scuba Rash Vest, $23.33-

Sunuva Girls Mexicana Rash Vest, $59.09-

Old Navy Girls Raglan-Sleeve Rash Guard, $14-

Crewcuts Boys’ Stripe Rash Guard, $39.50-

One more tidbit…Not sure if you’ve heard of Snappy-Suits, but if you have a child in diapers during warmer months this brand is what you need. Such a simple concept and I’ve been racking my brain to understand WHY other brands don’t design baby + toddler swimsuits with snaps?!

Snappy Suits Blue + White Striped with Ruffle, $28-
