Festival Fever- What To Wear

Growing up in Texas, Austin was a hot-spot for getting away, getting out, and having fun. ATX is considered the “Music Capital” of Texas and it definitely lives up to that name. You can barely walk 2 blocks without hearing live music. Everything from starving musicians to nationally acclaimed bands who just happened to stop by. It’s just the culture. For those reasons, and many more, festival season is near&dear to my heart.

With SXSW (South By Southwest) just passing & Coachella rolling into it’s last weekend, I thought it would be fun to put together some cool festival-inspired looks for you and your littles.

Of course, a lot of these brands are considered small shops–hand sewn, personally curated, well made/loved items for your littles. As you know (because I’m always harping on this topic–sorry! (not sorry)) , I really think it’s important to support the entrepreneurs (or mom-preneurs) in the world and these brands know what they are doing! Now, don’t get me wrong, I’ll shop any and everywhere- from second hand stores to Neiman Marcus-but my heart is with the small shops and if it fits, I support. Check ’em out!

I Hate Unicorns…Said No One Ever

Is it just me or is there some serious unicorn obsession sweeping the nation?! All kinds of unicorn inspired merchandise is popping up everywhere & I’m not mad about it.

I’ve even decided to theme Milly’s birthday party after this trend. I’m most definitely more excited than she is seeing as how she’s only turning 2 and would probably be happy with a single balloon and ice-cream. (She’ll be getting those things too! Of course, the balloon is a unicorn balloon. Of course.)

I’ve put together some of my favorite unicorn products out there (for kiddos & mamas) right here on the blog.
