Hi-tops that is…these from Zara are a must-have item for any stylish baby boy.  We love this part sneaker, part hiking boot–especially the side zip entry for ease.  From the preppiest to the coolest of styles, these transition easily between lots of looks.  Durable for the roughest of play, yet with a touch of polish and style to make any parent proud.  –CC

One of the most common things we hear is that boy’s fashion is tough for parents to tackle because boys only want to wear clothing that is athletic or comfortable.  Enter the ‘sneaky sweats’—this funnel collar sweatshirt is equal parts fashion meets cozy and these drawstring waist plaid pants are the perfect fusion of lounge-wear/chic.  Worn together or separately you have a few pieces that are sure to please the most discerning of boys (and their parents).—CC

I first discovered the whimsical brand Numero 74 while looking for just the right birthday crown for my daughter.  I’ve totally fallen for their line of fairy and princess accessories (seen here) and upon further research found they have equally special bedding, full dress-up attire for both girls/ boys and decorations for the home.  Stateside you can find their collection at Alex & Alexa, but Bobo Kids in UK has the most comprehensive collection.  The philosophy of the brand is appealing to children as well as their parents—hoping to keep dreams alive, let the imagination run free and add beauty to a child’s life.  Sounds pretty special, right?  XxNatalie

Here’s to always being lovely in Oscar, and celebrating an incredible designer and great man.

We are always storing away great gift ideas and when we came across this collection of rattles from Maileg our hearts melted.  Of course the best gifts are ones that look just as cute on display as the babies enjoy playing with them.  Our girls were all very into their rattles and soft rattles were clearly the preference.  What we love about these is that they turn into wonderful little imagination play toys when the little one gets a bit older.  Each rattle is sold individually, but we love the whole set!—CC

We adore these plaid pants from Caramel Baby & Child – so vintage and yet so modern.  These pants can be styled many different ways, but we love them mixed with these classic and simple pieces–especially the 70’s inspired coat which really makes this outfit super cool!  These pieces are well worth the investment.  We love a chic boy sporting the ‘vintage look.’  –CC

This month we are definitely transitioning into a fall state of mind.  Black and gold are our current go-tos.  A few highlights from Currently Coveting this month… One Good Deed bracelets: Do a good deed for someone else and move the little ring all the way around until you reach 100 good deeds.  The rules of wearing the bracelet?  A “good deed” means we’ve gone out of our way to help someone and only counts if the deed remains anonymous. We just love this concept and the bracelet!  Charlotte Tilbury is our current make-up du jour—these eyeshadow pallattes take the guesswork of how to achieve gorgeous eyes (for all those times we don’t have a make-up artist on-hand…ha).  A good bootie is very neccessary and we are all about the studs on this Anine Bing version (also comes with gold studs).  Neiman Marcus is host to Edie Parker’s custom clutch collection, where you choose the size, color and word or monogram… so chic.  A good (faux) leather jacket, midi skirt and some accessories round out our must-haves of the moment.  Happy Shopping!
