This one you need to know. And hold in your back pocket.

Meet Mimii Kids.

Not only are the styles out-of-this-world adorable, but each piece is made so finely. The styles will have you feeling nostalgic as they all possess a vintage flair. We bought Lucy this dress last year and really adore it. The construction of Mimii Kids’ clothing is acceptional and we think the price point is right for the prize you pick up. We have even washed the dress in our washing machines (line dry) and it comes out so beautifully! Bitsy is loving what they’ve introduced this season for boys + girls – traditional pieces with a modern touch. Easy to pair with anything trendy or classic. Any piece from this collection will fit in well with your child’s wardrobe to add a little something extra special.

For all styles:

sing (+ dress!) yourself happy…Brooklyn style

in-spi-ra-tion – noun.

the process of being mentally stimulated to do

or feel something, especially to do 

something creative

 I am always looking for inspiration – whether it be in someone else’s style, a new funky color, food or music I try to notice what makes me tick and note it away for safe keeping. You never know when you’re going to need a little inspiration. Lucky for me, we took Lucy to see THE POP UPS in concert on Monday. After the show my insides were bursting with inspiration! I would definitely consider us a musical family – my husband plays guitar among other instruments and we all just really appreciate what music does to us and how it inspires mostly everyone around us. That being said, after the show we were all feeling very tickled with inspiration!

For those of you that don’t know The Pop Ups, you have to check them out! They are a Brooklyn-based, Grammy nominated(!) musical duo that creates funky children’s songs that (believe me) even parents want to jam out to. They instantly grab their audiences attention by wildly performing their music using cardboard props, hand-painted sets and a colorful cast of original puppets. At our show they even threw out big + colorful beach balls in the audience so kids could ping them to one another. Just really fun stuff. Check them out here – THE POP UPS – to learn more and see when they may be rocking a house near you soon!

Here they are getting down to business…

The Pop Ups in Action

Since I had so much inspiration in my bones, I also hit up some fun Brooklyn-based children’s designers + web shops to see what the hipsters are up to. Check out these adorable finds (there is SO much more to share…stay tuned!)…

OH HAPPY DAY!

POST 7 - OH HAPPY DAY!

Lucy’s a busy 2 year old – working the Holiday party circuit – so there has been a need for some festive Holiday styling.

Here is the breakdown of Lucy’s outfit pictured above…

+ my “vintage” dress (as a tunic, since it is meant for a 1 year old and would have been too short for her string bean legs as a dress)

+ a white Circo L/S tee from Target (I LOVE these – usually stock up in August/September. They are a tighter fit and don’t stretch or ride up. They are great underneath jumpers, sleeveless tunics, overalls, sweaters, etc). Similar here…

 infant + toddler girls long-sleeve tee

+ skinny Guess jeggings. Similar here…

guess kids baby girl pull on skinny knit pants

+ festive red, white + green pom-pom ribbon necklace (a homemade present from one of her best buds)
