…Ipanema. You know the song, but do you know the shoes? “Ipanema is a fun, chic and colorful Brazilian made sandal and flip flop collection named after one of the most exotic and famous beaches in the world.” These are a chic twist on your classic flip flop and croc using softer rubber and fun playful designs inspired by the infamous resort town, “blending a relaxed seaside lifestyle with the sophistication of city glamour.” A little something extra to add to your summer fun. –CC
There is nothing sweeter than an angel wing dress on little girls…of most ages. We think up until the age 7/8 for sure…past that depends on where you live and how you style it. But until then, dress those girls for the ‘frill of it’ and enjoy every adorable moment. These silhouettes from Little Bean Shop are especially lovely in their vintage patterns and simple summertime style. –CC
Summer is officially in full swing and we are all about easy breezy, feel good, casual accessories, shades of indigo, and beachy accents for the home. The off-the-shoulder trend is a favorite; and multi-purpose beauty products and fresh sunnies for the seasons are a must. Cheers to many warm days ahead–may they last as long as possible, for an abundance of wonderful chic memories. Happy shopping! xx, Christin & Natalie
Obsessed with this new discovery for myself–especially their understated easy-to-wear bohemian dresses and blouses, I then was even more thrilled to find their beautiful little capsule collection for children. Yearling by Doen has three key pieces…a unisex poncho, a dress (the sweetest complement to the one for mama) and a hand-stitched gauze blouse in white. Each of these pieces are perfect for now and will transition beautifully into fall with an added layer. We love a great new find with a little something for everyone! –CC
We are just getting into summer and it seems hard to believe that soon back-to-school will be rolling out! This is a great time of year to stock up on summer items which are on sale! We love the entire line from Louise Misha and some of the best pieces happen to be on sale at Fawn Shoppe right now. This little 2-piece is as cute as can be paired with pom pom sandals and a sunhat. Twice as nice!—CC
We’ve both talked about our little ones’ struggles with eczema and while there is not perfect solution, there are certainly products that help! We discovered Simple Sugars last summer and couldn’t be happier with the results and lovely shower experience. My oldest daughter, loves to use these every day and has several different scents that are her faves. The products with Emu Oil are particularly targeted to help skin conditions like eczema and all products are safe for use without parabens, sulphates or phthalates. Super sweet. XxNatalie
Simple Sugars products are available at SimpleSugarScrub.com.
Nothing quite says summer like these gorgeous dresses from Sailor Rose. Our personal favorite are the nautical striped long sleeve dress and the pillowcase dresses. What we love so much about these dresses (besides the gorgeous fabrics) are the simple and effortless cuts which make them easy to a party with sandals, wear over a bathing suit or even with sneakers to camp. These have us feeling simply rosie!—CC
Fathers day is just a few days away, so in honor of the occasion, we’re sharing a few of our favorite ‘daddy and me’ shoes from Ralph Lauren. Ralph Lauren undoubtedly offers some of the best options for big/little fashion choices and what better way to walk the walk than wearing shoes just like Dad’s. Happy Father’s Day.—CC
If you are gearing up for camp, then most check lists include bringing a towel for after water play. Our nice Serena & Lily beach towels (which we both have) just won’t do for the littles at camp, but these PB Kids ones do the trick. Fun patterns and colors, what we really love is that they can be personalized, ensuring they always make it home in the right backpack. On sale currently from $15-$23, these are a summer steal.—CC

Confession: I have been totally obsessed with the Temperley London Spring 2016 collection. I sincerely adore each piece in so many ways and simply can not get enough of it (especially now that much of it is on sale). Needless to say when I stumbled across this mini-me version from Zara, and translated so beautifully…I just had to share. xx, Christin
Your new go-to resource for all things chic in New York City from the perspective of two sisters (one a mom of two, and the other a mom to be). Both Candice Miller and Jenna Crespi were born and raised in Manhattan. Having lived in just about every neighborhood in the city, they have experienced it all and are sharing the wonderful details with us. From health, beauty, style, decor and family, Mama & Tata covers it all from at home injections to private children’s groups. So whether you live here or are just visiting, this is a great guide of well-edited places to go, things to do and people to see here in New York. Enjoy! –CC
We don’t often feature gear…unless it is truly exceptional. I can say from lots of research and personal experience, this Yoyo stroller by Babyzen is a total game changer. I intended to replace my older and worn out umbrella stroller with a newer version of the same one and started researching other options and new innovations. This stroller is for anyone in a big city who is constantly folding down their stroller and transferring across multiple forms of transportation and/or the jet setter. The ride is super smooth, it has a single handlebar for one handed pushing, it folds down with only using one hand so that you can hold on to your baby or toddler with the other, it folds down into a small square with a shoulder strap that can also be stored in an overhead bin on an airplane. Yes it is all true–check out this video to see for yourself. xx, Christin
We love finding a single piece that can be styled in many ways for different styles…especially one that is priced at $26.94. We love this blue stripe oxford shortall from Old Navy. It comes with a coordinating henley tee for a more casual/hip look, can be styled with a themed cardigan for a preppy look, or pair with a collared onesie and a solid cardigan for a classic style. Now this is what we call more bang for your buck. –CC
