Now that the sun is finally shining on the east coast (a month of rain will make most mommies crazy) it’s time to get the kids outside and stay outside. We often have a difficult time dressing our tots for all the changes and challenges of the day. We want breathable, sun protective, comfy and stylish clothes for our children….impossible? Not if you know where to shop, and we always do. We have a crush on Agoo clothing and keep going back for more. An addiction is the best way to describe it. Their toddler skort and tank are perfect for days at the playground and water park. The super fabulous material they use wicks away moisture, keeps the sun from burning them, and is stain resistant (bring on the grape juice and spaghetti). The skort acts like shorts (keeps everything covered) but looks like a hip little skirt, so swing sets and slides are not off limits. Love the cut and modern look of the tank…and the shades are sophisticated enough for mommy, and snazzy enough for your picky toddler as well. We went with the maroon, just in case our tot took “stain resistant” to the next level. Now if we could only convince Agoo to start making active wear for mommy too…
Now that summer is nearly here, we are on the hunt for hip tank tops for our tots. Nothing too cute…no trendy crossbones, and frilly lace is an absolute no-no. We want modern colors and original graphics that appeal to us and our rambunctious crew. So happy that celeb fave Milkshaxs has heard our cries for smart baby apparel. This fantastic Canadian company has a new Spring line that has knocked our wooly winter socks off. Our two absolute musts for summer are the Beccy’s Shoes tank and the Surfboards tee. Both designs are sophisticated yet very kid friendly. Love the soft feel and fit of their clothes and the fact that most creations are made with bamboo or organic cotton. Style mixed with tree hugging eco friendliness…nothing better than that. Get some Milkshaxs in time for the summer waves and rays. You will be as pleased as we are. Promise.
We have spoiled ourselves so much that nothing but the best will do…so thank goodness our package from Paigelauren Baby arrived in the mail the other day. We needed a luxury fix and we got it. Paigelauren makes the softest baby clothes we have ever felt…honest. Like butter. Debuting their fresh Fall line this past September, Paigelauren is getting a name as the brand to go for if you want style, comfort and baby clothes that are timeless. Love the classic lines, detailed stitching and practicality of the onesies, cardigans and rompers. The kimono long sleeve tee in rose is absolutely gorgeous and looks fabulous alone or layered over one of their classic white tees. can’t wait to see the Summer 2009 collection with it’s hip beach theme. Paigelauren’s modern and stylish clothes are designed and made in LA and sold in posh stores such as Nieman Marcus. We think you’ll agree that this line is worth all the fuss as you’ll be able to pass it down to the next baby due to the clothes fine quality and timeless look. They also have an organic collection for eco conscience babies. Go to www.paigelaurenbaby.com and just try to leave without owning some Paigelauren…you won’t be able to.

When we find baby clothes that are stylish and organic we celebrate. It’s not easy, as you style conscious and environmentally friendly mommies know, to find clothing for your infant that is safe and looks fabulous. We were thrilled to find out about TOMO & EDIE, a very cool and funky clothing company that makes organic kimonos. They come short or long, and in a combination version that has snaps up the legs. So soft and the seams are on the outside so your new little one will not have their delicate skin irritated. They come in the all natural shade you see above, and in some really bold Japanese dyed shades. The dyes are all natural, using teas, trees and flowers. What a fantastic baby shower gift that will stand out from the rest. We needed to try out their gorgeous hair accessories too, made of vintage Japanese silk kimonos. Once the kimono is no longer being worn, they take the beautiful material and made the most amazing hair clips (no worries mom…they stay in thin , wispy toddler hair…we know, we tried). The best part? They donate 10% of their profits to Unicef. Hey Brad, if your looking for a little something for Angelina to brighten up her day (being pregnant isn’t easy) and give to charity, TOMO & EDIE sounds perfect to us. She’ll love it.

A stylish bib is just as important as a fabulous wardrobe. How else are you going to keep baby fashionably clean? Covering up babe’s Burberry dress with an unworthy bib is just nonsense. You need something just as special. We love the fresh designs from DA BIB, and have been using their gorgeous and functional bibs ever since they arrived. They come in two styles : HUGS, made of microfiber terry with a waterproof back, and GIGGLES, a waterproof bib that easily wipes clean. Both styles come in yummy designs and colors and both have a fabulous scrunch collar that keeps your tot’s neckline clean…no more tossing baby’s white tee’s out after a messy lunch. No wonder celeb mommies snatched them up at the Primetime Emmy Gift Suite. Protect your wee ones stylish clothes with DA BIBS brilliant bibs at www.dabib.com
