Our best buddies moved to Chicago last fall and we’ve been waiting to get ourselves there ever since they told us the news! We planned a short 4-day trip quickly over these past few weeks so we could take in the sites of the beautiful windy city, get as much QT with our buddies and have an adventure…all with our girls! We had a blast (despite the cold, rainy weather on the first day)! Chicago is such an easy, fun city to get around. Especially with the kiddos. We did not have much time for all the sites, but here’s the skinny on what we did, what we hope to do next time and why we think Chicago is pretty awesome…
I’ve recently received a lot of questions about First Holy Communion dresses and shoes. Lucy makes her Communion on April 27th, so we’re on the “Communion scene” for sure 😜! I’ve been on the hunt for a while. Lu decided to wear my sister, Meredith’s dress. She loves mine, but my sister’s dress suits her perfectly. It fits her perfectly and is so Lucy’s little style. I can’t wait for you to see it! She decided she wants to wear
A sale from one of our most favorite brands - La Coqueta! Yes, please. Lucy and Greer wear a ton of La Coqueta for many reasons. The first reason being that the clothing is made SO well. It is true craftsmanship - something that we don’t see much of in these times. The other reason is that their styles are spot on - classic and easy to tailor to your own every day (or even special occasion) vibe.
Today we’re sharing Bitsy’s children’s Duck Boots picks. We love duck boots because they are a practical, cute, one-shoe option for the munchkins in the colder/wet months. See our good ‘ol stand-bys, some new options ( we’ve personally tried this year for Lucy) and styles that make our eyes smile!
We decided a while ago we want to gift the girls useful, simple presents this Holiday season. We have just spent almost 2 years of our lives packing, moving, sorting, moving again, purging, renovating, moving some more, renovating some more, purging, renovating. You get the idea. Through this we’ve realized that we have too much “stuff” and the burden of holding on to it seems ridiculous. Since we are about to embark on installing our family room area carpet (fingers crossed before Christmas!) we thought bean bags would be such a great addition to the room that we hang out in the most. So, the search began for the right bean bags.
Memorial Day weekend happened and I skated through it like I usually do - a bit stressed because I was not prepared with the things the girls needed for the new "season". If you live near or around New England, you are most likely with me on this because the past two years we basically have gone straight from winter into summer. It threw me off last year and again this year. So, I started compiling 2 lists. I grouped together spring/summer, autumn/winter (just like designers do when creating their collections!).
Getting the Littles Ready for Valentine's Day
We just love Valentine's Day...and always plan our outfits carefully. Today...
Bitsy was excited to attend Babyccino's 2nd NYC Shop Up this past weekend. We had the opportunity to walk around the event 2 days in a row - getting to know new brands, visiting with old friends and discovering beautiful + creative new product that makes you want to spend all of your money! Dangerous.
I'VE got a new way to walk...walk, walk...
Shoes are a huge part of growing up. Most importantly, they help us grow into our very own strut. They also complete an outfit, a look. We keep our eye out for the best - both in style and construction - for our little people's tootsies. Take a gander!
