Let’s Celebrate!|4th of July Style

In my opinion, any holiday is a reason to dress your kiddos up in a holiday-inspired outfit (hopefully they wont hate me for it later)! July 4th speaks to our patriotism, our pride in being American so, of course, I’m bringing you some great July 4th-inspired pieces made by small businesses–right here in the U.S. of A. Take a look and, if you hurry, your kiddo[s] can rock these pieces this upcoming 4th! This holiday has just become a tad bit cooler. Enjoy!

Farewell|Stay & Co. — My First Small-Shop Purchase

I first found Kailee when she was operating under her own brand ‘Miss J Handmade’ while I was trolling the internet for cute hair accessories for my youngest child, Makenzie. Some time after my first purchase, Kailee announced via social media that she would be pairing up with Megan (who was unknown to me at that point) to launch Stay&Co–a brand designing home wears and children’s clothes/accessories. (You can see my Makenzie below in some of their amazing little hair/head accessories)

A few days ago, these two lovely ladies announced that Stay & Co would be closing and each of them would be venturing off to fulfill other dreams. (Can’t be mad at that, right?!) Although it is sad to see Stay & Co part ways, the “sweet” in this bitter-sweet story is that everything is 50% off on their site–everything must go! Check them out and then keep an eye out for what’s to come from both Megan + Kailee.
