I'm a bit late to the game on learning about Primary, a baby and children's gender-neutral fashion brand offering a range of items (shorts, leggings, t-shirts, dresses, skirts, swimwear, etc.) in a rainbow of solid colors. I don't know about you, but I have found it next to impossible to find affordable, solid-colored clothes for B. Occasionally I'll find them at H&M or Target, but often they are sold out which is frustrating. And as much as I love patterns and cute prints, I like to pair them with solids.Read More
When we packed for our travels, our focus was on packing as little as possible. As someone who loves clothes and fashion, this was difficult and required several iterations of paring down. And what was the hardest category for me to limit? Shoes!Read More
'Tis the season for holiday parties and opportunities to get dressed up, which I always love. I'm not sure if it is having a child or being in my 30s, but I've suddenly found that my existing options for holiday dress are unacceptable and that my wardrobe needs revamping.Read More
In mid-July, Target replaced its prior kids' clothing lines (Cherokee and Circo) with Cat & Jack, a line designed for kids by kids. You can read the details about Target's new approach in an in-depth article in Bloomberg (I wasn't surprised to read that kids' clothing is a $30 billion market in the United States), but I was really drawn in by the bright colors, fun designs, and low prices of some of the new offerings. I typically pick up some basics at Target, but look elsewhere (MiniBoden, Zara, Busy Bees, Bella Bliss, Egg by Susan Lazar) for special, cuter items. I'll definitely be ordering a few of these affordable options from Cat & Jack for Blythe (especially this skirt since she is obsessed with pom-poms). I've included some of my favorites from the toddler line below - baby and older kiddos are available online, too.
*Update* - Most of my order has arrived and these clothes are just as cute in person as they are online. I particularly love all of the leggings, the dinosaur print dress, and the headband. I'm returning the t-shirt with the flowers attached, but otherwise am excited for B's new (affordable) finds!
