Purple Patches

A few months ago I complained about how it wasn’t hot… well it certainly is now!   If my kids are outside there is usually some sort of water activity involved – inflatable pools, water tables, water balloons, and/or Super Soakers. Therefore I typically have them in comfortable lightweight clothes!

I first found the rainbow romper for M.   She loves how soft it is.  I will say I worried about her ability to go to the bathroom (maybe TMI) but she can navigate the snaps quite easily on the shoulder.  Then I stumbled upon the matching tee for H.  Score!

I hope everyone had a relaxing Memorial Day weekend commemorating all the brave men and women who died for our country.

We (of course) all wore our red, white, and blue in support.

It was ridiculously hot so for the few moments we weren’t in bathing suits I opted for the kids to wear comfortable attire that I knew would still end up wet from a water table and rocking a nice Popsicle stain or two!

Madison’s shirt is also the flip sequins making it double adorable. Check it out…

Stars and Stripes

Headed into Memorial Day weekend the kids’ school is continuing the spirit week with a Stars and Stripes Day.   This super cute matching dress and shorts set works perfectly and will also make a reappearance for the Fourth of July! My daughter rated the twirl factor on this dress a 10.

This set is also from Eleanor Rose.  The key to shopping their stuff is to sign up for the email notifications so you know when the pre-orders happen.  The releases for holiday apparel can happen up to six months prior to the holiday and are always the ones that sell out with very little chance to order later.  This morning they are wrapping up Halloween orders for example.  Their non-holiday apparel does tend to stick around a little longer; however, also seems to lack in the boy options.

I highly recommend checking them out!

Hawaii Here We Come

I can only wish we were going to Hawaii.

The kids had Hawaiian Day at school for spirit week.  Which means the perfect excuse to find adorable matching Hawaiian gear… am I right?!?

These not only fit the theme but would be perfect for any summer vacation and are not expensive!

Eleanor Rose

I’m one of the weird Moms who doesn’t care for MJ (Matilda Jane).  I know you can abandon my blog now. I get it. I’m not sure what’s wrong with me either.

To me it looks like random patterns, colors and extreme ruffles threw up all over my child.  However, I stumbled upon Eleanor Rose.  This is similar to MJ but I feel a little more simple and classic.  They have the cutest holiday releases! Plus they occasionally have matching boy shirts and John Johns.

Check out some of their pumpkin patch collection for next fall.  It is too adorable and I’m loving the dark denim options.

Toucan Twins

Toucans have been all the rage for this summer.  From dresses to shirts, bathing suits to cover-ups, and even accessories.

Madison’s dress is unfortunately sold out because it was Gymboree from last year (it is her absolute favorite too) but I’ve linked some other Toucan options below that are just as cute to twin with the bro.
