Mommy & Me Rain Gear Guide
April showers bring May flowers! We all love that fun little saying, but what most of us don’t love is dealing with all the rain showers to get to those lovely spring flowers.

Being stuck out in the rain with kids in-tow can sometimes be a mess, and oftentimes we give up style for convenience at the first sight of ominous clouds. We’ve all done it. We put on our old trusty reliable yoga pants, our favorite t-shirt or pullover, and throw our just-showered wet hair into a bun because well, it’s just going to get wet anyway.

Gloomy weather doesn’t mean you have to lose your sense of style! From fun trenches to colorful, yet classic, wellies, there are multiple rain gear options to help you to combat those rainy day blahs and still look chic as possible.

We found some of the cutest and brightest rain gear for you and your little ones in our rain gear guide for Spring 2015. This rain gear is sure to make a splash, in a totally dry way of course, and turn even the gloomiest days around.

1. Wippette Blue Ducks Rain Coat, $22 {on sale}
2. Havaianas Yellow & Aqua Rain Boots, $40
3. The Northface Hot Pink Trench, $149
4. Hunter Boots Green Patent Rain Tote, $325
5. Chooka Jungle Green Rain Skimmer, $55
6. Hatley Yellow Submarine Rain Coat, $52
7. Hunter Boots Aqua Rain Boots, $50

The cutest umbrellas for kids

You can’t forget the ultimate rainy day accessory… the umbrella! These adorable and bright options will make any rainy day fun.

8. Pink Anchor Umbrella, $10
9. Yellow Trimmed Bubble Umbrella, $19
10. RainTec Aqua Polka Dot Umbrella, $17

From sprinkles to downpours, what colorful rain gear will you choose to brighten your rainy days?

Chooze Shoes for Kids

When the temperatures start warming up in the spring, our kids literally start begging to wear their new warm weather clothes, including new their shoes. One thing that is important to us, like all moms, is buying shoes that are both fun and functional. We want shoes that we know our kids want to wear, but also ones that are going to hold up to the test of time and keep their little feet moving and grooving. CHOOZE shoes are just that…fun and functional!

We love so many things about the CHOOZE brand. First of all, they are certainly fun! These shoes have so much personality. Each pair matches, but both shoes are not quite the same. Some of the differences are drastic and others are more subtle, but because each pair is intentionally different, they boost creativity and uniqueness in all kids that wear them!

CHOOZE Shoes for kids

As for the functional side of things, CHOOZE makes their shoes with vegan materials and they all have padded insoles and flexible designs to insure healthy foot development. We all know that for little feet that are still growing, that is extremely important. Their high-quality outsoles are made to stand the test of time… and they are sure to stand up to rough-and-tumble play. Bottom line, these shoes are made with kids in mind.

As if we didn’t have enough reasons to love these shoes, learning that they invest annual profits in anti-poverty programs was the icing on the cake. They offer support, training and loans to help women in need to start their own businesses and raise themselves out of poverty. Every time our kids wear CHOOZE shoes, we will be reminded that we are helping other kids in need.

   Spring shoes for kids: CHOOZE Shoes

There are numerous designs and styles to pick, from sandals to sneaker and even slippers. Since we have spring and summer on the brain, these Chill in Hug Flip-Flops ($25) are a perfect option. They will be easy to slip on as we head the pool, or just for an afternoon playing in the sun. They are sturdy, well-made, and will keep girls feeling cute and cool on warm days.

Cute flip-flops for girls

My son was so excited to wear the unisex Move Sneakers ($49) in the Chomp pattern. They are comfortable and perfect for playground play. We love the fit and the fact that they were easy to slip on without worrying about them slipping off, and (and this is a big one!) they have held up against the rough and tumble play of a little boy.

Some of our other favorite styles were the Jump Mary Janes ($49) for little girls, the Dream Ballet Flats ($49) for bigger girls, and the Scout Loafers ($49) for boys of all ages.

Be sure to follow CHOOZE Shoes on Facebook and Instagram!

We want to know…which pair will you CHOOZE?

Meet Addi, Liv and Emma

Kid Street Style

These cute girls, Addie (age 5), Liv (age 4) and Emma (age 2), are some of the most stylish sisters we’ve ever seen. Their mom, Candice Appel (@CandiceAppel), features their looks and everyday life with these cuties (and their big brother!) on her popular Instagram account and we eat up every single post.

What mom says

Kid Street Style Girls

“I’m kind of OCD about when it comes to dressing the girls,” Candice shares. “They have to coordinate.” While we know their mom likely spends a lot of time pulling together the girls’ outfits, they don’t have that matchy-matchy look that moms with style dread. The girls looks are fun, colorful at times and filled with each girl’s unique style.

We asked Candice what the girls would wear, if they could have the run of their closets and she reported back: “Addi loves dresses. She tries to wear her favorite Taylor Joelle Designs dress to school twice a week. Liv is all about comfort, preferring a comfy, soft tee that’s not too tight, a skirt that twirls and flip-flops. And, Emma is all about her Hunter boots right now.”

Where to shop

To get a look inspired by the Appel girls, try shopping at some of their favorite stores and with some of their favorite brands:
