• NEW Minky Collection Arriving Soon!

    Our Minky Collection along with some amazing outerwear are here! We will be officially launching the pre-order on Monday, June 17th at 8:30PM CST. We love this collection so much because it's the perfect amount of luxe with an everyday feel. Our minky fabric has a bunny-soft surface but thick like a fleece. We heard from many of our customers that they wanted our softy buttery minky fabric for themselves so we have added two pullovers for Mom this season and you can also match your mini-me!   
     
    We originally designed the Minky outerwear because we fell in love with the soft fabric and we liked the idea of lightweight coats and vests for mild winters.  Last year, we added our Cozy Minky Coats which are double lined in minky so they provide extra warmth and double the softness too!  This year we were inspired to create some older girl options as our own girls are growing up.  Our new plaid tartan quilted vests are great everyday for school or can be dressed up for the holidays. We liked them so much that we decided we had to have them for ourselves so now Mom can also match in these stylish plaid vests!  Our new quilted car coats for older girls were inspired by Burberry and have fun check linings.  Super cute with the sleeves rolled to see the check fabrics.  
    Have any questions about the Minky collection? We will be answering questions Monday on our Instagram Stories. Tune in!

  • Back to School... But Not Just Yet!

    It's that time of year again. Kids are out of school and the Summer is upon us! We're all planning activities to keep the kiddos busy and starting to think about where we should vacation. Well, that's what most are thinking! If you're like us, as designers, we are always having to think ahead. We're already planning our Spring 2020 collection but more recently, we launched our Back to School collection and it made us a bit sentimental about how the Summer always flies by too fast. This prompted us to make a list of some ways to try and make the most of the Summer with our kids.  We thought maybe they would be helpful for you too! 
    1) Don't overcommit! It's an easy thing to do especially when trying to keep the kiddos entertained but it's also really nice to have some carefree days. You'll definitely be happy for them!
    2) Find some great outdoor activities to do! Whether it's a new hike or picnicking at your favorite park this is something memorable and also wonderful for one on one time with your kids. It's great to get them outside and enjoying nature. 
    3) Encourage Independant Learning - Don't let your kids become part of what they call the Summer "brain drain." Encourage them to put down the screens and pick up a book instead. 
    4) Schedule a family vacation - Summer is the perfect time to schedule a family getaway so pack the car up or schedule a flight to take the Summer fun on the road! 
    What are some of your tips for Summer with the kiddos? Would love to hear and share more!

  • Fun Bucket List Plans for your Summer!

    With Memorial Day behind us, Summer has officially launched and we couldn't be happier! We recently came across an article with a bucket list of things to do with your kids before they turn 12 and we thought it was really interesting! Here are some of our favorites and maybe you can start crossing these off with your kiddos this Summer! 
    1 - Camp out in the wild 
    2 - Run around in the rain 
    3 - Fly a kite 
    4 - Hunt for treasure on a beach 
    5 - Swing on a rope swing 
    6 - Eat blackberries growing in the wild 
    7 - Watch the sun wake up
    8 - Get behind a waterfall 
    9 - Feed a bird from your hand 
    10 - Cook on a campfire 
    11 - Canoe down a river
    Have you done all of these with your children? What would you add to this list? 
    Looking forward to hearing your thoughts!
