The Children's Place

The moment you walk in the door at The Children’s Place, you’ll realize that spring is here and it’s super stylish this year. Known for their bright, bold colors for kids’ clothes and styles that are fashionable, but also functional, The Children’s Place continues to hit the mark with their Spring 2014 collections.

The Children's Place

Spring is here at The Children’s Place

One of our favorite things about shopping at The Children’s Place is that no matter what you’re shopping for, you’ll find it there. They are pros at mixing kid classics, including spring staples such as shorts and graphic tees, with fun new prints and color combos that make you and your kids feel like you’re adding something special to their wardrobe.

Pictured above:
Dot Skimmer Shorts, $14
Baby Boy Shorts, $10 and up
Rompers for Girls, $16 and up

Our picks for boys

The Children's Place

There were so many eye-catching options in the boys’ section at The Children’s Place and since my son Everett was right in between sizes for the Baby Boy and the Boy sections, we got to pull our favorites from both sides! He was enamored with all of the graphic tees and I loved them because they felt nice and thick, as many graphic tees for boys don’t. Both of these pairs of shorts, in these colors, are in his regular outfit rotation — they’re soft and easy to get on and off.

Skull Graphic Tee, $11
Striped Matchback Shorts, $13
Pull-On Cargo Shorts, $13

Our picks for girls

The Children's Place


My girls, Janie and Meg, spent a long time browsing through all of the options at The Children’s Place and they tried on something from nearly every rack and table. But, it was true love with both of these dresses. Meg picked the dress on the left, which I love because it has an extra ruffle layer on the bust, for a bit more coverage than the average spaghetti-strap dress. Janie adored the hi-low dress on the right. This hemline is awesome for girls who often get tripped up on their maxi dresses!

Striped Maxi Dress, $25
Striped Hi-Low Dress, $17

Easter is just around the corner

Easter was made for girls who love dresses and this year’s selection of Easter dresses is out to impress. From tots to tweens, we have a dress to fit the style of every girl for Easter.

We picked a few trends from this year’s Easter dresses to display the cutest of the cutest, including some non-traditional options in the bunch, to satisfy whatever your Easter plans may be. Other trends we spotted for Easter dresses this year include eyelets — in all colors of the rainbow! — white dresses with a pop of color, and nautical navy and white dresses that have been Easter-ized.

The best part about these dresses? Most are under $20!

Flirty florals

Floral Easter Dresses

Even if your girl isn’t typically a flower child, Easter is a lovely excuse to add some floral to her wardrobe. We love that brands are offering some modern florals for Easter dresses this year, like a few that we featured here.

Cotton Dress, H&M, $8
Cherokee Cap Sleeve Dress, Target, $15

Bottom row:
Floral Stripe Belted Dress, GAP, $40
Floral Chambray-Trim Dress, Old Navy, $17
Jersey Dress, H&M, $18

Sassy stripes
Striped Easter Dresses

Stripes are hardly a trend anymore… they’re a classic! Wearing stripes on Easter can be tricky, as they can easily be casual, instead of celebratory. However, these striped Easter dresses are sweet and sassy at the same time and can easily be dressed up or down, depending on if you’re having Easter brunch at the Country Club or on the beach.

Top row:
Just One You Made by Carter’s Stripe Dress, Target, $23
Multi-Stripe Dress, GAP, $20

Bottom row:
Ruffle-Front Sleeveless Dress, Old Navy, $15
Striped Bubble Dress, The Children’s Place, $30
Stripe Boatneck Dress, Crewcuts, $55

Polk, polk, polka dots

Polka Dot Easter Dresses

Polka dots are the perfect way to incorporate a hint of pattern on a dress if your girl isn’t into dressing flashy or bold. And, there’s something so incredibly sweet about polka dots and they can be classic as well as playful. To bump up the style-factor, add another pattern in her cardigan or tights.

Top row:
Tulle Dress, H&M, $20
Cherokee Girl’s Dress, Target, $18

A little bit of glitz in every step

What girl does love a little glitz and glam when it comes to her shoes? We’ve found the cutest sparkly sandals for girls to kick off spring with a bit of glitter in her step. When it comes to wearing them, don’t be afraid to mix-and-match sparkles in her outfit — for girls, sparkles go with sparkles, even if it’s gold with silver.

The best thing about adding a pair of sparkly sandals to your daughter’s wardrobe for spring is that she can wear any of these pairs with practically anything in her closet. Just like a neutral, silver and gold in particular go with any color of the rainbow, so let her go for it!

Silver sandals for girls

Silver Sandals for Girls

Any of these pretty silver sandals can be dressed up for summer weddings or dressed down with play shorts for backyard summer play sessions. If your girl is a pink-lover, a pair of silver sandals is a nice match.

1. Paillette Sandals, The Children’s Place, $20 (also available in gold)
2. Salt Water Sandals by Hoe Shoes, Zappos, $38 (available in various colors)
3. Gladiator Sandal by Umi, Hanna Andersson, $70 (also available in gold and pink)

Gold sandals for girls

Gold Sandals for Girls

We adore the non-traditional pairing of the gold in these sandals with a bit of color. The rose gold straps mixed with the pink is a popular option for older girls and tweens, while the gold that pops against the navy in the pair for toddlers brings a modern twist to this trend.

1. Cherokee Jilia Sandals, Target, $17 (also available in silver)
2. Glitter Ankle Strap Sandals, Old Navy, $17
3. Glitter T-Strap Sandals, Old Navy, $17 (also available in silver, pink and brown)

Glittery sandals for girls

Glittery Sandals for Girls

If you’re going to go glitter, you might as well go rainbow glitter, right? For the little girl who loves a bit of color with her sparkle, these sandals are the way to go. Plus, both pair are super functional for her summer adventures.

1. Teva Kids Mush II Sparkle Flip Flops, Zappos, $17
2. Crocs Shayna Sandals, Nordstrom, $30 (also available in pink, red and silver)

Four-eyed celebrity kid glasses style

Long gone are the days when needing to wear glasses as a kid was as bad as having a permanent case of cooties. Now, kids are even rocking fake glasses, just to get that cool, intellectual hipster vibe. These celebrity kids are famous for their four-eye style!

There is something about Violet Affleck, daughter of mega-movie stars Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, that is super endearing. Maybe it’s because she looks like she could be any of our own daughters… you know, us non-celebrities? Violet isn’t shy about wearing color and that extends to her choice in glasses as well. These bright pink specs are typical for Violet, who has been wearing glasses since she was a little one.

Because the daughter of Mariah Carey isn’t adorable enough, adding glasses to the mix — typically in pink — skyrockets Monroe Cannon’s sweetness rating off the charts. Monroe, who was born in Spring 2011, along with her twin brother, Moroccan, is turning 3 years old this week and we can imagine that trying to keep her mini-glasses on her face is practically a full-time job for the uber-famous Mimi.

Romeo Beckham

If your last name is Beckham, there isn’t much you can do to look geeky… even sporting full-blown wire-rimmed frames, as Romeo Beckham is sporting here. We’ve tried to discover if any David and Victoria Beckham’s kids are truly in the four-eye club — both Brooklyn and Romeo are often photographed wearing glasses off the red carpet — but when you look this cute in specs, we suppose it doesn’t really matter if you need them or not!

While you’re more likely to find them in the girls’ department, more and more moms are dressing their baby boys and little boys in leggings. And, we must admit, they’re looking pretty cool in them! Would you dress your little guy in a pair? Get started with some of these suggestions.

Leggings for Boys

1. Stella McCartney Macy Comic Leggings, Nordstrom, $54
2. Favorite Leggings, 2-Pack, GAP, $25
3. Eagle Cuffed Leggings, Sugar Plum Lane Baby on Etsy, $34
4. Arrow-Print Leggings, ZARA, $16
5. Camouflage Leggings, Sweet Lucy Jack on Etsy, $16 and up
6. Printed Jersey Leggings for Baby, Old Navy, $6
7. Skeleton Leggings, Mini and Maximus, $35
8. Tiger Claw Leggings, Thief and Bandit Kids, $38

How to style them

You’re probably thinking, “They’re just leggings. What’s the big deal?” But styling leggings for boys can be a bit trickier than you’d expect. First of all, if you’ve snagged a pair from the girls’ department (which I often do for my little guy!), you’ll want to make sure that they don’t look like the were plucked out of his sister’s closet. Add a funky tee, in dark colors perhaps, to counterbalance the look.

Next, check on the pattern. Many leggings for boys come in uber-hip graphic patterns, which means you’ll want to pair them with patterns that are complimentary. Stripes pretty much go with everything, even other stripes, and a good general rule of thumb is that if you’re going to mix patterns, keep them in the same color family.

Last up, it’s easy for them to cross into sweatpants or pajama territory. And considering many of the coolest pairs cost more than your typical pair of go-to cover-up pants for your girls, you’ll want to put the effort into making them a piece of an outfit, rather than just throwing them on with whatever is next in his drawer.

Welcome Baby Apollo!Gwen Stefani and kids

Gwen Stefani and her rocker husband, Gavin Rossdale, welcomed their third son, Apollo Bowie Flynn Rossdale, on March 1, 2014. Little Apollo was a much-anticipated celebrity baby, joining big brothers Kingston and Zuma to make the Stefani-Rossdales a family of five.

With the arrival of her third son, Gwen Stefani is, undoubtedly, one of the most stylish moms… ever. We’ve pulled together some styles that Gwen would approve of for her Baby Apollo. They’re a little bit edgy, a little bit rock n’ roll, and a whole lot of sweet!

Get the look for your little guy

Pulling together an outfit for your baby boy that is Gwen Stefani-worthy is easier than you may think… and you don’t have to have a celebrity budget to make it happen. With just a few basic pieces, your little rocker will be stylin’ before you know it!

Stick with dark, neutral colors for the basics — onesies, pants, tops — with pops of one hip accent color in accessories such as hats and shoes. Graphic print baby clothes, using shapes in the patterns (think arrows and triangles) are a must-have, as well as pants that have modern, unusual fits and lengths. Last but not least, layer on some stripes! The skinnier the stripe, the better, especially when paired with other patterns.

Say “hello” to this brand to watch, Hello Apparel. Making a name for themselves in the world of fashion for kids (and adults!), their signature “hello” sweatshirts and tees practically have a cult following of moms who love their simple, trendy designs. This is a brand that is going big and we’re rooting for them along the way!

Hello Apparel for Kids

A brand to love… and so much more

Based in Arizona, this month’s brand to watch is one that is sweeping moms off their feet — not just for their super cute, super simple, super soft clothes for kids and babies, but also for their undeniable connection to their loyal customers.

Hello Apparel is actually the signature collection from Arizona-based merchandiser, Hello Merch, a company which helps artists produce and sell their designs online — mostly on t-shirts — without having to sell out. And it’s exactly this homegrown, let’s-help-each-other-out spirit that customers can feel through Hello Apparel.

Having recently broke 50,000 followers on Instagram, they stay connected to their fans (and their fans connect with each other!) using #helloapparel, hosting regular giveaways and re-posting pictures of adorable little ones sporting Hello Apparel gear. You’d be amazed at how many different ways their customers can style that seemingly simple “hello” sweatshirt! Have a question about how that onesie fits? They’ll respond. Looking for a size that isn’t online? They’ll let you know how long it will be until it is again. Just want to say “hello?” Expect a kind “hello” in return.

There’s good stuff happening at Hello Apparel. Very good stuff.

Our must-have picks

Oh, and did we happen to mention how much we adore their clothes too? With an ever-changing, often seasonal, line of clothes for babies and kids, if you see something you love from Hello Apparel, we suggest picking it up before their hoards of fashionable mama fans snatch it up first! New to Hello Apparel? Start with these favorites:

Hello Apparel Pullover Sweatshirt

Hello Apparel Navy Raglan Pullover — $40

Hello Apparel Arrows Shirt

Hello Apparel Arrows Tri-Blend T-Shirt — $22

Keeping an eye on them

Hello Apparel clothing is also sold in retail locations across the country and they’ve been teaming up with well-known retailer Land of Nod for some local in-store pop-up shop events.

You don’t need to be Irish to celebrate in style this St. Patrick’s Day — and considering how pinch-worth your kids are all-year long, dressing them in green on this spirited holiday is probably a smart move! For St. Patty’s fashion for the littlest of leprechauns to styles that your older kids will happily wear to school, we’ve got your whole clan covered.

Grab one of these St. Patty’s inspired pieces as a compromise that will make them feel lucky.
