How will we begin our first day of December ? The same way we have been doing for years….by opening day 1 of our Lego Advent calender. Perfect way to kick off the official countdown to Christmas Day. This year the theme is Star Wars, and even though mommy (me) may not know her droids from her storm troopers we’re quite sure that it will be a huge hit with the kids. The Lego Advent calender has become a Christmas tradition in our home, replacing the yummy chocolate one. It only took us one holiday season and one over active 18 month old girl to discover why a calender filled with chocolate was not the best of ideas. Not to worry if you haven’t got one yet, cause even though Lego is sold out and times ticking away, amazon has it listed as available, and it makes a great gift even if you have to catch up on the first few days you missed. The hard part will be you and the kids having enough self control not to open all 24 days at once.
We’ll admit it…we actually like getting the kids ready in the morning for school. We said it…and we can’t take it back. It’s fun when you can pick out cool outfits together and get it ready the night before. Keeps the drama and tears to a minimum. We love it when we pick out something super hip like the threads from Ada Ada. If you’re tired of traditional pinks and blues for your little ones then this is the collection for you. Gorgeous designs and muted tones set the stage for clothes that look great anywhere from a casual playdate to a fancy party. Love their new tights for girls and the moon hoodie for boys. They wear well and are totally functional in addition to being sophisticated and full of originality. We think the moon hoodie and tee would also look sweet paired with a skirt and fancy tall boots for your little girl. In fact, we think this line is very “Jolie-Pitts”…worldly yet completely approachable. Wouldn’t be too surprised if little Shiloh or Maddox were snapped sporting the designs. Ada Ada’s current F/W 11-12 collection, inspired by Nights & Shining Armour, encourages imagination and dreaming…two things all children should do.
When buying clothes and shoes for your child, it’s always smart to stick to styles that are timeless. You’ll be avoiding the fads and ensuring that you can pass the items down to other siblings. This why we love the shoes and boots from Pediped. Always fashionable, but always classy and totally wearable too. Our current obsession from Pediped’s Flex line is the Naomi Black Boots…so beautiful, and perfect for this cold weather. The quilted upper adds real style to the boot while the Flex Fit insoles provide extended weariblity. Love the simple side bow and the shiny foot too. These details make the boots perfect for anything from a fancy Christmas party to a dressed down day at the playground. So versatile. If you’re looking for something besides boots, Pediped has plenty of gorgeous shoes just made for the upcoming holidays with lots of metallic, patent leather, glitz and a wee bit of glam thrown in for extra measure. They really are our “go to” place for our kid’s footwear. Stay up to date on all their sales, promos and latest additions by becoming a fan of their FB page like us.

Simple & classy with a little edge thrown in for fun is what you’ll get when your baby wears threads from Rock Star Baby. This very hip and totally addictive line is from the very talented Tico Torres. Yes…that Tico…the rocker from Bon Jovi. The reason behind his extra curricular activities as a fashion designer for children is simple. He wanted some cool clothes for his own child when he couldn’t find what he was looking for. Sounds like a lot of the hard working mom entrepreneurs we know and write about on this site. Rock Star Baby is a major collection that includes shoes, accessories, newborn & kids clothes and even some very hip blankets. The black, white and gray color scheme works well not only because it looks modern and stylish, but it will match just about anything you already have in your baby’s wardrobe. Also, being a parent makes you appreciate black tee shirts on a whole different level…they wash like a dream and are nearly impossible to ruin. What’s our favorite piece from the collection? We’re absolutely head over heels with the Flower and Skulls dress…sweet with a little drama thrown in for good measure. For newborns we are super into their essential starter sets. Perfect for an impressive baby shower gift as they include all the little things you need to get through a day with a new baby. It even comes gift wrapped in a very posh little black box. Too fabulous.
