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
I had so much fun finding gift items for little ones that I had to make this guide longer than others. We were in Boston for Thanksgiving, and I found so much inspiration wandering my favorite neighborhoods (the South End and Beacon Hill).Read More
One of our most-used items of baby paraphernalia when Blythe was born was our Solly Wrap, which we have in the Natural & Grey Stripe. I was skeptical of baby wraps because I was convinced there was no way I'd figure out how to wrap it such that I was certain Blythe wouldn't just fall out the bottom, but after watching this video (for how to carry a newborn) and practicing a few times, it was our favorite way to carry Blythe (Rob, in particular, used it regularly). Blythe was always so cozy in the wrap and it was particularly helpful for days when she was fussy and wanted to be held while she slept but we actually need to get something done around the house.
Solly Baby recently announced that they've partnered with Rifle Paper Co. to launch the cutest floral print wrap that will be available on September 14th. If you have a little one on the way or know someone who does, this would make a fantastic gift. Check out their fun video about the collaboration on the Solly blog.

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!
