Top it all off...

Remember when mom nagged us not to go out into the winter cold without a hat on? Well now it's OUR turn to nag the kids...but wouldn't you know it, their hats and scarves are actually STYLISH, not the home-knitted, oversized concoctions we wore. Pictured is the oh-so-adorable Catimini Naissance Hat & Scarf set for our youngest little snowbunnies. Too cute!

Live in an extra chilly climate? Get fuzzy with the Deux par Deux Floralies Hat and Scarf set, made with extra soft, extra snuggly alpaca fibers. And don't forget the matching mittens!

Here in Georgia we understand the need for winter wear without the bulk. Warmer weather climates like ours will love the Pampolina Forest Rose Chenille Hat and Scarf set, which offers luxurious softness (and style)without weighing her down.

So rest assured, moms--little heads will stay warm this winter!

Tinseltown in Trumpette

Ok, I love Trumpette--I mean, who wouldn't? But this is getting crazy! Everywhere I turn another celeb is carrying around her new little bundle of joy dressed to the nines and wearing Trumpette socks. Just last week we showed you Jessica Alba's baby girl wearing these sweet little socks. And while the Trumpette Mary Janes seem to be the bootie of choice for Hollywood's elite, we've also seen quite a few of the Trumpette Ballerina on the girls and the Trumpette Cowboy socks on the boys. Alright already, we get it! Everybody loves Trumpette!!

Preppy Boy

What's his look...skater, surfer, sporty? One look that never goes out of style is the preppy look. IKKS boy's Striped Sweater has got the classic preppy stripes and the colors too! But IKKS's doesn't do classic--it's jazzed up with a knit undershirt for an urban-meets-preppy look. Of course, you can't say preppy without thinking Argyle. IKKS adds a little contemporary style with old-fashioned argyle with their IKKS toddler boy's argyle hoodie. Meanwhile, Catimini gives young boys the collegiate look with this striped and argyle sweater (don't forget the matching hat and gloves). And finally, Charlie Rocket (known for it's California style) know's that every boy loves stripes and every mom loves clean polo's! Take a look at Charlie Rocket's 2fer Polo Tee, boyish stripes and that good ol' preppy polo.

Rainy Day Blues

As I write this, it's a chilly, rainy October day here. It's grey, murky, and all I want to do is bundle up in my comfy jeans and stay inside for the day. Denim is the ultimate go-to fabric for comfort and warmth, and the styles out there for kids right now are absolutely fabulous! In the girls jeans department, we love the flower embroidery on the Catimini Spirit Ethnique Jeans. For guys, Catimini also makes a pair of boys jeans that use just the right amount of distressing for a totally cool fall look! And nothing is cuter right now on the market than the Oilily Fall '08 collection, which includes this simply angelic Baby Jumper. So get out those jeans, whip up a batch of hot chocolate, and stay warm kiddos!
