My girls have these garlands from Children Chic and absolutely love them (especially my older daughter Scarlett, 6 years)! Whether for dress-up or for an everyday look, these little accessories are full of whimsy and make even the simplest outfit seem extra special. xx, Christin
One of the great conundrums when springtime rolls around is footwear. Sure, there are plenty of sandals out there—but some schools don’t allow for open-toed shoes, so sneakers are a must. If you have a girl who prefers ‘fancy’ to athletic footwear, these little sparklers are for you. At the price of $16.94, you might as well pick-up both gold and silver and we have a feeling these will be getting a lot of wear.—CC
Happy baby is indeed a yoga pose, but its also a moniker for a baby wrapped in the Godee from MeLuvKush. The origin of the Godee is from the Hindi word ‘godhi,’ meaning “in your lap.” The Godee is a multi-use, beautifully constructed wrap for babies 0-6 months. We’ll admit, we love anything that offers functionality, but with such style and craftmanship. Godee uses include, a safe way to hold and pass a newborn, a play or changing mat (especially for on-the-go), and we especially love it for this time of year in the bassinet of the stroller. Available in 4 colors, the Godee is hand-stitched and super-soft in the sweetest of block-prints. Or, as we like to call it…the best thing you never knew you needed. Perfect for Mother’s Day, a baby shower gift or for any new mom, we are so excited to be GIVING AWAY 4 of these beautiful baby wraps.—CC

Since Friday’s are usually devoted to items that are more price-conscious, we thought we’d share this video…as it truly is priceless. “The unique connection” (which is happens to be in promotion of Pandora Jewelry’s ‘unique collection’) is just so incredibly touching to watch as a parent, and we thought it fitting to share with you as we approach Mother’s Day. Grab a tissue and enjoy. xx
The one upside to rainy days? Rain gear, of course! While we don’t subscribe to the littlest ones needing rain gear, around age 2 those muddy puddles will be a-calling! Zara has great options for the youngest puddle jumpers. We particularly love this transparent lace floral option (which reminds us of our contributors, Veronica Beard’s version of a lace rain jacket). Anything to get us through to those May flowers, right?—CC
It started with a dress that my dear friend and our contributor Annie Anderson told me about…of course I had to have it. I bought one for each of my girls and they quickly became wardrobe favorites. Mim-Pi is bohemian with a touch of spunk. You can go matching or coordinating for sisters (or friends) of all ages…either way, their spring collection is full of must-have’s. xx, Christin
Looking to shake it up in the hair accessory department…we adore this little head scarf by Peppercorn Kids! The silky texture, fringe trim, and array of bright colors are the ideal combination to add a ‘spring breeze’ to any look. Pair with a multi-layered look in the city, a simple dress on the town, or a swimsuit on the beach for the perfect touch of chic. –CC
Olive Juice’s Bontanical collection is just what the doctor ordered as a fix for our spring fever. Muted tones of tan, coral and teal make this collection soft, dreamy and perfect for warmer temps. Both this keyhole blouse and twirl skirt are the pieces that work easily into the spring wardrobe and have us feeling grateful for the change of seasons (at last!!).—CC
PS – select items just went on sale today!
Sometimes…its the most basic of pieces that are the best suited to get us through multiple seasons. Such is the case with a simple military green cotton jacket. We like this Hartford style from Elias & Grace for it’s refined and understand quality. From seasonal transitions and through to next year this piece has the strength to be a winner.—CC
