Hey there, Irene from designstiles again.
I was looking for a gift for our friend’s baby when I stumbled on this site, Boden. Holy heavens, their baby clothes is ridiculously cute. There wasn’t a single thing I didn’t want to purchase. I wanted one of everything for our little boy and even girl stuff just to have on hand when it’s time to gift.
Their coats are particularly adorable and perfect for the Fall and Winter season.
I rounded up my favorite coats, knitwear and hats just in time to bundle up your wee ones.
More cute clothes here.

Love Milk & Masuki as much as I do? The new collection just came out and Rexy has the Fox Tee in Aqua and coordinating Me-O-My Fox Blankie. GOSH, I am obsessed! If you are not familiar with Milk & Masuki let me share a bit…
From bibs to blankies to tees & onesies, all of their beautifully designed products are made from 100% organic cotton. This means your baby has soft & chemical free fabrics against their skin. I also LOVE their fabrics because they do not fade after washing.
What are your favorite new pieces from the collection?
P.S. ALL Tees are currently 25% off! Use Code Tee25 at checkout
One of my new favorites…
Le Marchand d’Etoiles! ♥♥♥ The French clothing brand is known for their beautiful designs, comfortable pajamas, & emblematic star motifs. They recently launched the Le Marchand d’Etoiles English online shop so you can now purchase this sweet French clothing brand for your own children.
Pictured above, Harper is wearing her new Sunday loungewear, the Robe Panda in Gris. It is one of my new favorites… so soft and cozy! I am also loving the Robe de Chambre with it’s wizard-like star hoodie!
What is your fave piece?
Rex got this super awesome new Tee by Mini Citizen last week. It has a hand drawn/hand printed Cactus on it. I LOVE that green on dark grey! Mini Citizen also sells one of my favorite “snoozy fox” tees & onesies. Be sure to check them out!
We paired Rexy’s new tee with his Funky Legs Splash Leggings. Don’t you LOVE little boys in leggings? This bold red pair is one of my FAVES!
Not much work going on this Friday…
Last night was the Scottsdale Moms Blog + theBump.com Mom’s Night out. It was a FAB event, so many amazing ladies/prizes/yummy cocktails & food! If you live in the area be sure to watch for the next event in November. (i’ll post some pics on Monday)
I just wanted to announce that the black/white star harems are now available on SpearmintLOVE.com. They are super cute on both boys & girls! See a pic of Rexy in a pair on my Instagram: thespearmintblogs
have a great weekend, shari
I wanted to introduce you to the new “Welcome Baby” shop at Tea Collection. This brand new baby collection is super duper fun with lots of cute prints & patterns. I’ve picked out 2 of my favorite pieces: a butterfly romper for girls + a tiger romper for boys:

Rex & I just got our new Salt City Emporium leggings & board shorts. Everything was a perfect fit! We recruited Harper to take a few photographs. She is getting pretty good at holding the iPhone VERY still. I think she has some real potential as a photographer, no?
A few more credits:

Do you have a favorite place to shop for children’s sleepwear? Skylar Luna recently sent over these pretty PINK stripe-y pajamas for Harper. All of their sleepwear is oh so soft & made of chemical-free, 100%-organic cotton.
I have to be honest, I really appreciate the beautiful/simple patterned choices. It is a nice change from the superhero/princess/silly animal jammies you see most places! I have my eye on the matching green & red striped PJs for Christmas morning. Which pajamas are your favorite?
p.s. harper’s teepee is from PoshTots.com
If you follow me on Instagram you’ve probably noticed Harper wearing these beautiful sandals all summer. They are GOLD Riudavets’ Avarcas and they have quickly become one of her favorite pairs of shoes! I love them for children because they slip on so fast and support feet enough for walks in the city as well as the beachside!
Riudavets’ Avarcas come in pretty much every color as well as men & women’s sizes too! What color is your favorite? …I am thinking about getting myself some white ones.
If you don’t know the history of Riudavets, it is super interesting…
The first Avarca has its origins in the Menorcan countryside. Menorca is a small island in the Spanish Mediterranean, where the land is dry and hard. Given these conditions, the Menorcan villagers needed shoes that were strong and flexible, yet simple in design. They soon found that Avarcas were the ideal shoes for this purpose, as Avarcas kept the villagers’ feet cool and comfortable.
Over time, Menorca’s economy changed. As farm tasks were mechanized, many laborers moved to the island’s towns in search of new trades. Bep de Binixems was one of these laborers. He is the grandfather of the third generation of José Riudavets SL, a family business and one of the key names in the history of Menorcan Avarcas. Binixems worked for many years on the farm before leaving the countryside to learn the trade of shoemaking.
Established in the late 1920s, and currently run by the third generation, this family business has always guaranteed authenticity, durability and a proper fit. The authentic Avarcas Riudavets of today still carry many characteristics of those worn yesterday: a classic tire sole, a fine suede inner lining, greased leather and a hidden border stitch.
Hi again, Irene from designstiles here sharing some stylish shoes for your little one(s).
I find (some) baby shoes unbelievably adorable. Miniature versions of their adult counterparts have me wanting to purchase multiples even though they’ll be outgrown soon after purchasing.
Here’s a roundup of some I’m awwwing over.
No. five, you fancy.

Anyone else already prepping for fall/back-to-school? It may seem early, but here in AZ the kids go back to school on August 7th! Crazy, huh? I’m currently taking inventory of Rex & Harper’s wardrobes. Seasons here in Scottsdale are WAY different than they were in southern, NJ. We are lucky that summer pieces transition nicely into fall with a few light layers on top!
Today I wanted to share a peek into the fall 2013 China Collection from Tea Collection! Such gorgeous clothes! Lots of COLORFUL separates; from floral embroidery to exuberant pop art, bold stripes and geometric patterns. What are your favorite pieces? I am obsessed with the Pin Dot French Terry Cargos for Harper. They come in 3 colors and the fit is so cool/unique! For Rex I’m loving the City Stripe Happy Hoodies… perfect for layering on chilly fall days!
Discover the inspiration behind Tea’s beautiful Fall 2013 China collection here:
Any Janie and Jack lovers out there? I’m a HUGE fan, and I especially love this time of year because they are running their Semi-Annual sale. There are soooo many cute pieces at reduced prices.

At Janie and Jack you’ll find great outfit ideas for your little one. There are also a LOT of mix n’ match pieces. I love mixing their bold patterned separates.

Happy 4th! Hope you all are enjoying some quality family time. I am taking a 6 day weekend with my husband, Harper, & Rexford. On Sunday my stepdaughter and her boyfriend fly in and we are SOOOOO excited.
So, this spring/summer we’ve been featuring all kinds of A-M-A-Z-I-N-G brands for children. Today’s outfits are no exception!:
Rex is wearing the Embroidered Poplin Cuban Shirt & the Embroidered Knit Twill Shorts by Kapital K. Kapital K is a contemporary brand with a cool urban downtown vibe. The outfit Rex is wearing is one of my faves. Kapital K sells everything from plaid polos, graphic tees, cargo shorts and more. Rex’s shoes = Stego Black Sandals by livieandluca.com. Can you tell Rex likes getting his picture taken?
Harper is wearing 2 outfits. In the first photo she is wearing a Janie & Jack Jumper with hair ties from the Emi-Jay® Americana Collection Oval Tin. In the second photo she is wearing the Funky Legs Bow Skirt in Pink from L’Officiel Enfant. Her white headband is also from the from the Emi-Jay® Americana Collection Oval Tin.

ENJOY THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND. xo, shari
Hi! Irene here from designstiles. Today I’m sharing something for the pregnant mamas.
One of my go-to online shopping stops is Asos and I just found out they have maternity clothes!
Cute clothes at affordable prices? Let’s get to shopping. Helps that they also have a sale going on. So I say treat yourself now before that baby comes and days of treating yourself are few and far between.
Here’s my round up of my favorite preg pieces.

Appaman sent over this fab suit for Rexford! (sooo excited to see my little man in his first suit!!) I was literally having this fast forward to prom day in my mind while taking these pics. Haha! Anyway the suit is called the Mod Suit in Khaki & I honestly don’t think there is a cooler suit for little dudes! (it also comes in a gorgeous grey/MIST)
Yesterday we did this little photo shoot in the garage. We had to set up a fan since it was about 108 in Scottsdale, AZ! Rex was too hot to wear a collared shirt underneath his suit so we went with a Chippendale’s bow tie look + a white tank. Rex is also wearing his Neon Eaters Diamond Slip-Ons in Black/White from psychobabyonline.com
BTW, can you tell my guy likes posing for photos? (lots of sarcasm in that statement!)
Looking for some cool summer clothes for your little man? Appaman is my favorite for making your guy look street cool & sharp at the same time! & right now they are having a HUGE sale! Stock up on your street style faves for boys and girls. Just enter code “30SUMMER” to take 30% off your entire Appaman.com order.*
Check out the 2 summer outfits I chose for Rex. I love the fact that I can mix n’ match for different looks!

Little Society (one of my favorite children’s brands) is on sale on theminisocial.com today. If you haven’t joined The Mini Social yet, what are you waiting for? It is free and you will get access to daily designer items at a 50% or more discount. I LOVE a great deal, WOOHOO!
Rexford celebrated his 3rd birthday last week. We had a mini celebration since we were gearing up for the big move. He’ll get his big presents once we make it to AZ, but he did get to wear his special birthday tee that I picked out from Petitelemon.com. They have the cutest things, don’t you think? Rex is wearing the Colorful Number Boy T-shirt in Red.
A blogging friend of mine recently posted about her son’s first pair of shoes and it really got me thinking about the shoes I put on my sons. Now that both of my boys are past the teeny baby stage and even my youngest has been walking for over a year now, they are wearing real big boy shoes. In my opinion, you really have to search if you want your boys to wear anything that doesn’t look “middle aged man” and these four shoe picks are some of my favorites for little boys! I’m not really a huge fan of the look of Crocs, but my 21 month old son LOVES the independence of these shoes because he can slip them on and off himself! I’m loving the cheaper old navy version of the trendy Natives. Saltwater sandals are super darling classic children’s sandals and of course every little boy needs a pair of rain boots for splashing in puddles! Happy summer shoe shopping Mamas!

I have a very serious question for you today… I would like to know if there is anything cuter than a tiny little pair of baby shoes? I mean seriously, if you really think about it… the tiny little feet scrunching up those tiny little toes making it hard to put on those adorable tiny little shoes. But once those shoes are on… how super cute is it to see fat little legs kicking and kicking those shoe covered feet?
So today, let’s talk about the most adorable of all the adorable baby shoes shall we?
1 // All About Heidi
The most adorable petal shoes! Handmade out of a single piece of leather, there are no seams so no roughness on little feet. The petal silhouette allows your little one to stretch their toes any which way while still being protected. Perfect right?And if you are interested there is a giveaway going on over on my personal blog for a free pair!!
2 // OWO Shoes
Handmade out of leather and lined with a super soft lining, they come in some fabulous colors! The laces ensure a perfect fit and they come in all kinds of sizes from newborn on up! I’m pretty sure they will become something to keep and treasure forever. I mean look at them… are they not adorable?
3 // Freshly Picked
Ohh moccs… I have a soft spot for moccs… The colors, the fringe, the silhouette, the fact that they become more adorable as they’re worn in AND they’re handmade? Basically they’re worth every penny!
4 // Scarlettos
Baby canvas shoes that look like little Toms! With elastic so they stay on! Handmade with lots of different patterns! Adorable!
5 // Manimals
Now these are moccasins. The mix of the fringe and the little tie are perfect for a little boho baby! Plus they come in yellow and HOT PINK! Sweet right?
6 // Weepereas
Little cloth reversible slippers with an endless list of patterns. Don’t these look like the perfect little things to keep those socks on those adorable little feet?
For more from me be sure to visit Just Dawnelle! I’m there chatting it up everyday and would love to have you!
On Sunday morning Harper & I went out for a drive with camera in tow. It was a fabulous 70 degree morning & Harper was all dressed up in her brand new outfit from Elephantito. (i am obsessed with their sweet girly dresses & shoes!) Harper wore the:
* Mauve Floral Smocked Tunic Dress (ON SALE NOW!) I am OBSESSED with the fit & fabric of this dress, it is so lovely.
* Crossed Sandal – Orquid Leather They are just a tad big on her still. They come in many colors & I just love the criss cross of the leather.
* Light Olive Green Peony Bohemian Floral Headband by Just Dawnelle. Dawnelle is a contributor here on Spearmint Baby and she has some serious style. Her Etsy shop is full of fabulous/affordable headbands for women/girls.
The first stop for our mini photoshoot was an old, deserted barn about 5 miles from my house. I’ve driven by this decaying barn hundreds of times, but never actually had the guts to check it out! I thought it would make a pretty backdrop for photos so we pulled into the grassy lot.
After about 10 minutes of picture taking in front of the barn, we decided to walk around to the back. On the side there was a cutout for a window. I lifted Harper up to peek inside and the view was beautiful! We had a discussion about all of the different animals that may have lived here a long time ago. Then we walked around to the back of the barn. There were enough wood planks missing from the back right side of the barn that we were able to walk inside! It was an absolute gem… the barn had hardwood floors, an old/rusty fridge, a handmade chair, and a spectacular wooden ceiling/roofline. The 1st photos of Harper were taken inside.
After we finished at the barn we took a drive over to Main Street. The photos below were taken there. Do your kids like posing for pictures? Mine DO NOT & I usually have to make up some sort of game to get them to stand still for more than a few seconds. I had to bribe Harper with ice cream to get some photos while walking up and down Main Street. After we were finished she picked out a NESTLÉ Drumstick at the 7-11 across the street.
Thank you to Elephantito for Harper’s beautiful new clothes! Be sure to bookmark them for special occasion clothes. They have so many GORGEOUS things for baby, girls & boys. & you can follow Elephantito on Facebook for sneak peeks of their new collection as well as fab sales!
Oh my holy cuteness! Jumpsuits!!! Trending right now, and forever more in my mind, are jumpsuits. These are just too cute to keep to myself. Stripes, ruffles, patchwork, florals… you name it and they’ve put in on a jumpsuit this season. Here’s just a few that I’ve found so far…
Psychobaby makes a variety of really cool personalized clothes/accessories/& gear for babies & kids. If you are looking for something special for your little one be sure to check them out!
Hi there, Irene here from designstiles. I’m in that age group now where friends are either having babies or have babies. Because I don’t yet have kids of my own, I get a kick out of buying baby and kid clothes for friends. There’s so much cute stuff out there. And affordable too. Thanks to stores like Old Navy, Gap and H&M.
Today I’m sharing some cute kid clothes that I would totally consider gifting.

I’ve been soooo excited to share this gem of a store with you, Vindie Baby! We are working with them this spring to share some of my favorite pieces for your toddler & little girl. YAY!
If you are like me, you’ll likely fall in love with EVERYTHING at Vindie Baby. No worries because the prices are SO AFFORDABLE that you actually CAN buy multiple pieces. I’ve picked out a dress, a swimsuit, & a new outfit for Harper to wear this spring/summer:
They are seriously LOVELY. I’d love to hear about your faves from Vindie Baby.
* thanks to Flor.com for providing the fabulous chevron carpet squares. Harper is pictured with the Made You Look design squares in Tangerine! WE LOVE THEM!

Anyone else do most of their shopping online these days? I often wonder how moms of little ones used to shop when there were no computers/internet!
Do you have a favorite site to shop for your baby/kids? Today I want to introduce The Mini Social. Every weekday The Mini Social launches new sales for babies, kids and moms. Sales last for a limited time (typically 72 hours) and sell out quickly, so you have to act fast. Membership is absolutely free, and all you need is your name and email to access the site.
The Mini Social currently has one of my favorite brands, Little Society on sale! & remember Harpers cute easter outfit by Rayil? Well, Rayil is going on sale TODAY! So join now to get access to the best prices.
This spring is shaping up to be AH-MAZINGLY adorable! If you follow Brickyard buffalo on Instagram I’m sure you’ve seen the leggings and now moccasin frenzy that crashed their site – Cray cray! And now I am seeing bowties and knotted headbands everywhere! I snagged both sets of these beauties on B/B and am now
impatiently patiently waiting for them to arrive. Here are a few other fab shops carrying these trends…
So tell me, what trends are you seeing this Spring?
I hope you all had a wonderful Easter, Passover, & Spring Vacation! I’m back to regular blogging this week after a week at home with my kids. Harper & Rex were so excited to go back to preschool this morning & I am equally excited to get back to work!
Today I’m sharing one of Harper’s new spring outfits from Rayil. (We can’t thank them enough!) Harper’s favorite color is PURPLE so we saved her Rayil outfit for Easter. It was chilly here in NJ so she had to pair it with a white cotton sweater and leggings, but before we went out egg collecting I took some photos of her going through her Easter basket.
If you haven’t heard of Rayil, they make absolutely gorgeous clothing from the finest Indian silk and cotton fabrics. I am obsessed with their wrapped tops! Harper is wearing the Ambrosia Wrap Top with the Ambrosia Skirt. I also have my eye on the Reversible Blush/Ivory Cape. Wouldn’t it be perfect for an evening wedding?
I bought the boys new outfits for Easter at Target this year. It was a good excuse to get them something new for spring since we are pretty casual about Easter in my family. I instantly fell in love with these neon shorts! You can’t really tell from the photos, but the shirt also has little neon specks in the fabric as well- so cute! There are a lot of really adorable OshKosh brand little boys clothes at Target right now, some of my other favorites include this striped shirt and these striped shorts! Is anyone else really excited for warm weather??

Good evening! We are on spring break this week which means I am home with the kids… which means it is hard to get a blog post finished while my kids are awake!
It wasn’t quite warm enough for the park today, so we kept busy with lots of puzzles! We also started going through spring wardrobes. Harper has so many beautiful new pieces for spring and I’m so anxious for the sun to shine bright so I can paint her toenails and put her pretty sandals on!
This outfit is one of my FAVORITES:
Harper’s dress is by Egg Baby from Fawn Shoppe. It is absolutely stunning! Her shoes are from Fawn Shoppe as well. They are the star sandal by Pom D’Api. (& leggings from Old Navy)
I am so into the baby legging craze right now! Leggings are great for little boys and girls because they are comfy, easy to put on and ADORABLE! I had a hard time finding cute inexpensive leggings for boys until I started looking in the girls section at stores! LOTS of leggings can be gender neutral so don’t be afraid to shop for your baby boys in the girls section!

Good MONDAY morning! We had a really nice spring-like weekend & took full advantage of it on both Saturday & Sunday. On Sunday we loaded the bikes in the car and took them over to our favorite park. It has a beautiful paved trail around a large pond.
The nice weather also got me anxious to pull out the spring/summer clothes. I’ve received some adorable sample clothing for the kids this summer including a few pieces from Klever Kids’ new All Aboard collection. The RED, WHITE, & BLUE pieces are super smart & would be perfect for your spring/summer vacation. My favorite piece = the girls high waisted shorts.

California is beautiful right now. Sorry to rub that in, but it totally is. With sunny days in the high sixties there is little to complain about. You could of course find something… hay fever, allergies, a winter cold that you just can’t seem to kick…

I am a HUGE fan of handmade, and especially LOVE supporting working mamas! One of my FAVORITE handmade discoveries this month is Diesel in Bloom. Cassandra (the owner/creator) makes the most adorable cardigan onesies with the CUTEST prints! Wouldn’t you love to have your baby photographed in one of these? Which is your fave?
Cassandra also has a darling blog that talks about family as well as some of her DIY projects. One of my favorite projects is her DIY Valentine’s Day arrow leggings. She teaches you how to make your own with a stencil and fabric paint. Anyone else dying to try this!?
Have you noticed the kitty cat trend? I have to admit, I’ve always been a dog person but all of a sudden I have this OBSESSION with cats! (I even added a coool cat background on my Twitter page!)

Ok, I have to admit that since I found out I would be having another little boy, I have always dreamed about dressing my children in matching outfits. I’m not sure what it is about kids that match – but it is always adorable! My mom used to dress my sister and I alike pretty often when we were little. These outfits for my boys just kind of “appeared” into my life. I bought Roman the blue Old Navy skinny jeans and the rest of the outfits were gifted by family members. Of course I had to jump at the chance to grab some cute matching photos of them!
All of these items were on clearance from Target and Old Navy which are my favorite stores (following thrift stores of course!) for children’s clothing.
Visit my personal blog at: comesincolours.blogspot.com!
One of the toys that my daughter enjoys the most now is her tea set. She has tea pot, stove, saucers, tea cups, and spoons. She pretends to pour the tea, stir and serve it to us..it’s the cutest thing! I made this apron for her so she can use while she plays with her tea set.
I had about half a meter of this blue cotton fabric left over, so I cute small square for the bust part, and rectangle for the skirt part. The edges are finished with stripes bias tape I made out of some scraps. I made this using my new industrial sewing machine, which works so fast.
What is your child’s favorite toy?
Recently I stumbled upon a blog, called Fancy Tree House. She is an online vintage shop owner and a mother of adorable baby girl, Goldie. I kept reading her past posts and fell in love with her maternity style. When I was pregnant, I tended toward wearing darker color, such as black, navy and grey since I thought those colors made me look skinnier. Coury did not hesitate to wear bright colorful colors and to mix and match colors like yellow & hot pink and red & orange! I was so inspired by her style, it made me want to be pregnant again.
Also check out the nursery she put together for Goldie! So cute!

Hello Spearmint Baby readers! How was your New Year? My year 2013 didn’t start off so well. My sewing machine and laptop broke and I had to replace them both..sigh.
Today, I wanted to show the dresses I made for a lovely lady from Sweden. She is getting married in February, and her little daughter is going to be her flower girl. According to her request, I made a matching dress for her daughter. The sleeves, fabric and the neckline are all mini-version of her mother’s wedding dress! I thought the idea of matching dresses was so special.
I’m super excited to be working with H&M this winter. Today I wanted to share some of my favorite looks for little girls this coming season. Jan/Feb/March is such a dreary time for us north-east coasters… too cold to really even think about spring fashion. So why not just freshen up her wardrobe with some COLORFUL new pieces that will transition perfectly into the Spring season? I love H&M’s mix-n-match styles & want so many things for my little girl!
I’ve picked out 6 looks to freshen up Harper’s late winter wardrobe. H&M is soooo AFFORDABLE which is really important to me as a mother on a budget. What do you think? What are your favorite looks for spring?
Did you see all of the beautiful things that Target sold over the holiday season as part of the Target + Neiman Marcus Collection? I was birthday present shopping at Target with my kids yesterday and everything in the collection is on clearance! I bought the Marc Jacobs Pouch in GOLD to store our passports, and fell in love with the bicycle by Alice + Olivia. All of the little girl’s dresses are marked down to $17.99-$23.99. If you have a special event or wedding coming up these dresses are stunning! I almost purchased the polkadot dress for Harper. Which is your favorite?
The Klever Kids line is designed for boys and girls ages 2 – 8 years. The entire collection is made from 100% Peruvian pima cotton, making the clothes ultra-soft, comfortable & stylish. Be sure to check them out!
