10-19Newsletter1. Johnnie-O Pullovers: The Perfect parent and child approved layer…looks polished enough to wear with nicer pants but feels like a sweatshirt.  Click here to shop the collection.

4. A Little Something for Mom.  If you race around all day trying to squeeze it all in like we do, you probably have just as little or no time to be bothered with things like make-up.  But we will admit, a little concealer, blush or bronzer and mascara makes all the difference…in how you look and how you feel.  We recently discovered a mascara that is genius…loads of volume, water resistant and no smudge or smearing (i.e. no mascara under your eyes by the end of the day).  And it is easily removed with soap and water.  Trust us…you will love it!  Click here to get yours.

5. Dondolo – A Brand You Need to Know.  This beautiful children’s line just launched in 2015 and has already made a great impression.  Not only have they created stunning collections of baby accessories and complete seasonal collections of must have’s, they are also empowering mothers.  Dondolo has created a business model that employs single mothers in Columbia to create high quality and timeless clothing with proceeds from the sales going back to provide clothing for the local children in need.    Now this is a brand we feel good about buying.  Click here to learn more.  Click here to find a boutique in your area.

For those of us that do not wear a uniform to school, this type of stylish yet easy outfit is exactly what our mornings are craving.  Old Navy does simple so well and we think this dress warrants a purchase in both colors.  Pair with knee socks or a fun printed pair of tights for a basic outfit that feels anything but boring.—CC

We are totally blushing over Marie Chantal’s fall girls collection.  We love how these pieces can be worn just a casual as they can be dressy.  The beauty of blush is completely neutral, yet on trend and works beautifully with your traditional fall colors such as shades of brown, navy and grey.  These are your essential investment pieces for the season and will stand the test of time to pass on to future generations.  –CC

Fall is officially here, and apple and pumpkin picking are in full swing.  This time of year is all about the layers and ones with versatility.  When it comes to boys, we like no fuss and colors and patterns that can easily mix with the rest of their wardrobe.  You can’t go wrong with a few navy, red and grey staples…here are some of our favorites from Egg by Susan Lazar that will work all season long and into the winter with plenty of style to boot.  –CC

…and I will not carry one either.  Most of us would choose fashion over function, but why can’t you have both?  Well, you can!  Life In Play has created the ultimate diaper bag alternative.  An insert sized small or large to fit right inside your favorite tote bag that instantly adds function.  And it comes in several colors so you can match the lining.  Not to mention the ability to take out the packed insert and instantly change bags on a dime.  Viola – the ultimate solution!  –CC

Hard for me to say, but my baby boy is almost 21 months old.  Having experience with two girls before his arrival, my husband and I often find ourselves in unfamiliar situations.  He has been sleeping with a regular blanket in his bed for several months now, and all of sudden he is climbing out of his crib…yikes!  Putting him back in the sleep sack is working like a charm…so far.  Unfortunately he has outgrown all the adorable plush ones I had for him, and the alternatives are not near as lovely.  Enter Smidge – the most beautifully hand made sleep sacks in an incredible array of prints that come in a large enough size to accommodate my 32 lb. baby boy with room to grow.  Lacy Noble is the designer and seamstress behind the brand working on her grandmother’s vintage sewing machine; and she has an Instagram page well worth following.  Not to mention, she has done blankets, moses baskets and other custom pieces.  We think this is more than just a ‘smidge’ worth talking about.  xx, Christin

p.s. Amazing baby gift to match the nursery.

In addition to planning our back-to-school shopping for our children, of course we have our eye on some fall updates for ourselves.  Accessory shopping is always a favorite for this time of year and hats, shoes and wraps top our lists.  We’re also looking for some fresh beauty updates, and of course getting back into our work-out routine with kids in school.   Happy September Shopping!—CC

One things for sure this fall…luxe fabrics are certainly in, and your children’s wardrobes are no exception.  We like to focus on accessories for fall because they are inevitably the first items we need to purchase once school is back in swing.  We are loving all the rich, velvety fabrics for fall and these boots are a perfect execution of trendy meets practical.  Add this crazy cool Mongolian Goat bag with a pop of pink and you have the texture box checked ✔️.—CC
