My daughter Harper just turned five and one of her favorite gifts was Uncle Milton’s ‘Rainbow in My Room’.  Simple yet super cool, this little gadget projects a full rainbow across a dark room.  Talk about feeling safe and having the sweetest of dreams…this is the most magical night light around.  Chic dreams!  xx, Christin

p.s. Thank you Garriott family for our new favorite toy.

As schools start to close and we approach the official start of summer with Memorial Day Weekend, it’s time to get into the spirit with a few all American essentials.  Busy Bees is known for its classic staples deemed as ‘American Prep’, but can also be translated and styled with a multitude of looks.  Sizing ranges from baby to tween which makes it an easy one stop shop for most families.  Here are some of our favorites to cary you through the season.  –CC

…is the name of the latest capsule collection from Zara for baby boys (3 months-3 years).  A little James Perse and a little Henry Lehr is the style, look and feel of these comfy cozy play clothes.  Soft and neutral enough to feel baby, yet chalk full of cool factor with unfinished seems, deconstructed lines and mixed playful patterns.  We think everyone could use a little ‘rock and sand’ in their wardrobe.  –CC

We’ve both had these suits through the years for our little ones, and they are really great for the newest swimmers.  While they aren’t 100% as float-proof as some other swim floats, for babies, they offer a great amount of buoyancy  (and cuteness)! Each suit also provides SPF coverage of 50+.  PS, check out these dreamy cover-ups also from Sunuva 💕—CC

Summer is fast-approaching and we couldn’t be happier about it.  We are in the nautical frame of mind for little boys and Pennymeade has a perfect selection of Memorial Day-ready pieces for boys.  Throw on an open denim shirt and some native shoes with this gingham look and you are ready to sail away!—CC

Pants seem to always be a problem in our house (…the fact that non of my three girls like wearing them)!  To that point, I do find it challenging to find pants that properly fit petite girls.  On sizes they would normally wear, the waist never seems to right, and to go down a size means the legs aren’t long enough.  Zara’s Skinny Twill Trousers are quite the find as they fit like a dream with super-soft cotton! I will certainly be adding a few more colors to the collection! xxNatalie

A friend recently told us about the Instagram account “TargetDoesItAgain,” which is filled with daily pics of chic finds at everyones favorite superstore.  Included in mix are some adorable children’s pieces, which got us to searching their vast array of (well-priced) clothing for kids.  So many good finds! We especially loved the boho-vibe selection for babies and girls (Pink Chicken even has a line called Happy by Pink Chicken!).  A few of the stand-outs below, of which they’ve hit the bullseye.—CC

I am always looking for new children’s tableware that is durable, does not look like tupperware, and is available in cute prints–prints that do not include television characters, princesses or superhero’s (as to be argued over).  I discovered this collection from Rice at a quirky little shop in the West Village and they have truly become a family favorite.  Made from melamine, dishwasher safe and BPA free…lots of fun for everyday or ideal table décor for a celebration.  xx, Christin

We love the way Indigo blues look on summer skin and are so excited about this incredible collection of separates from Johnnie B by Boden.  For girls from ages 9-16, these are a great melange of classic, boho, Provencal and beach styles that can be worn in a variety of different ways.  These are the kind of essentials you want to arm your tweens with for the season…hard to go wrong with a wardrobe like this ;).  –CC

La Stupenderia is a brand known for it’s luxurious fabrics and classic Italian elegance.  Though a splurge, we think their pieces are ideal for a special occasion, family photos, or a gift that will indeed be remembered.  We adore these outfits for baby boy.  Heirloom quality without the fuss, but loaded with impeccable details that give the “made in Italy” label worth every bit of the investment.  –CC

My little ‘bunny’ is turning 5 and as each year passes, I am always blown away with what speed they go by.  My heart both warms and aches when I think about my baby girl growing up.  Her giggly spirit makes us smile all the time, and her feisty energy keeps us on our toes.  Her gumption fills us with pride, and her ‘rock star’ themed birthday party is beyond fitting.  Here are some of the very specific items on her list.  Happy birthday baby – we love you to the moon and back (again and again and again…to infinity).  xx, Christin

Between making a few changes in my girls’ bedroom to add a desk and planning my daughter Harper’s ‘rock star’ themed birthday party, I keep finding all these wonderfully gilded items.  Ultra chic fashion pieces, super fly footwear, sparkly storage baskets and modern furnishings are just some of the things with which I have recently fallen in love.  From baby to big boy, you’re golden.  xx, Christin

Checks are always in season, and such is the case with this mint green Old Navy beauty.  We love how easy this is to throw on in transition season (now) and with a pair of shorts or with a swimsuit (later).  We think the rest of this look is pretty divine as well…check ✔and check✔!—CC
