get dressed . tiny ties

4 Dec

if you’ve followed my blog for any period of time, you’ll be well aware that we love us a good bow tie (or necktie) in this house. and because october through january is crazy time for birthday and holiday parties around these parts, cole’s been sporting a lot of them these days. here are some of our favourites!

and a few fun related gifts for the bow tie lover in your life, because. . . well, why not? ;)

happy party season!


get dressed . floral shorts

23 May

we took these photos a month ago (while we still had snow!) and now that it’s finally spring here, it’s time i shared them. if you’d like to see more posts like this (for little boys too), let me know and i’ll try to throw some into the rotation from time to time!

this is how we’re styling lila’s favourite new shorts :)



there are so many quick and easy ways to make a simple outfit just a little bit special :) and there are a ton of cute shorts out right now to choose from!

bonus: all of the tips above would easily translate for any other girly shorts too — think polka dotted shorts with a floral sweatshirt, lace shorts with a khaki vest, etc. limitless combinations!

which look is your favourite??

hey canada — online shopping at zara has (finally) opened today! it’s a pretty much a guarantee that either lila or cole (usually both) has at least one thing from zara on every day so i’ve been waiting for this day for what seems like forever. here are some of my favourites (including a few items that already reside in the kids’ closets, along with a couple of new additions this morning).

vest . swim trunks . knit hat

floral sweatshirt . vest . lace dress

coloured jeans . denim shirt . desert boot

shorts . jumpsuit . crochet blucher

they even have a mini section for the teeniest of shoppers. i think i’ve found a new go to shop for baby gifts!

happy shopping!


get dressed . hello, i adore you

buy a cute shirt. support a good cause.
i meant to post this on monday when the sale began, but the week got away from me. today is the last day to take part in on this awesome collaboration from hello apparel and ps. i adore you. act fast!

on a related note, i get a lot of requests for kids’ style posts but i’m unsure what you all are most interested in seeing. if this is something that is of interest to you, can you let me know what you’d like to see? (where we shop? what we’re buying? putting outfits together? etc.) thank you!

giveaway . knit cowl

15 Oct

it’s monday, it’s fall, and it’s been far too long since the last giveaway, so let’s just get to it!

you may have noticed the ridiculously cute neckwear my kiddos were sporting yesterday… irina from purl lamb was kind enough to send a couple of custom cowls (cole’s is bandana style — so awesome!) for us this fall and is giving one away to a lucky reader as well!

two ways to enter:
first, head over and like the purl lamb facebook page (and leave a comment here letting me know you’ve done so).
second, leave another comment below telling me something (anything!) you are looking forward to this fall.
easy!

contest closes friday october 19.

big thanks to purl lamb for the generosity (and mad knitting skills). good luck!

congratulations jennifer!
