Made in KC: RedeuxKidz

Posted on August 5th, by Melanie

My daughter is SO picky about what she wears…I can’t tell you how many times she has torn off a great outfit because she thinks it is uncomfortable! But, I think we found a great balance of fashion and comfort with locally made clothes by Redeux Kidz. 

I was excited to come across this line, made by Kansas City mom Sarah Teresinski. She searches high and low for the softest vintage fabrics that she remakes into adorable kids clothing. Every piece that my daughter has worn so far has gotten a huge thumbs up; which is not easy!

These bloomers are so cute and lightweight; great for summer…

And she REALLY loved this romper which is just a tad big on her now, but it was too cute not to take on our vacation. She kept saying she was a “flower girl” which I thought was pretty fun. The romper came with the flower which can be worn in the hair or pinned on the front…

The great thing is, Sarah can take a piece of say your mother’s or grandmother’s vintage clothing and make it into something for your child.… Continue Reading

Vivi Loves: Tea Collection

Posted on June 4th, by Melanie

Play clothes are the hardest thing to shop for. If your kids are like mine they are super picky about comfort. On the other hand, I also want them to look cute. It’s hard to find the balance!

Tea collection is one brand that combines comfort and quality and the cute factor. We have had great luck with this brand, and continue to buy a few pieces each season at The Little House in Fairway, who has a fabulous selection of the line.

These pieces are from their newest collection, a mix of blues, grey, black and white and red. It is a nice transitional collection that mixes well with just about anything.

We met up with our friend Sutton at one of our favorite spots in Kansas City, Kauffman Gardens.

Product Love: Lately Lily

Posted on March 26th, by Melanie

We are obsessed with kids books in our house!  I am always looking for something new to read to the kids, since I have read most of our books a million times. I stumbled upon the Lately Lily book and toys at The Little House and fell in love!  Since both my husband and I love to travel, and we have tried to expose our kids to the same I found this book to be the perfect addition to our home library.

Lily is a traveling girl; the daughter of a photographer and writer for the world’s greatest magazine. Lily has been living out of her sunny yellow suitcase her entire life! With a notebook in hand, Lily carefully records all of her observations from her travels so her friends can follow what she’s been up to, lately.

The illustrations are adorable and the stories are fantastic. How lovely to see all the delights of the world and travel through a child’s eyes.… Continue Reading

Kid Style: Playing Dress Up

Posted on December 1st, by Melanie

Tis the season for holiday parties, holiday programs at school and different events where kids just can’t be wearing their favorite sweat pants or jeans. I have to say, I love getting the kids dressed up for a special occasion…and (fingers crossed) they haven’t thrown a fit about it yet!

Instead of a traditional boys look of khaki pants and a sweater, we decided to go bold with these plaid pants! I paired them with a subtle gingham shirt and red half zip sweater and Sperry’s all from The Little House.

for Vivi we opted for an un-conventional color; cobalt blue. It’s a gorgeous color on, and the velvet is super soft. I am also a sucker for anything with a sweet peter pan collar!

Sugarplum Fairy

Posted on November 20th, by Melanie

One of my favorite parts about Christmas is the Nutcracker. I have been going to see this ballet for years; from the time I was itty-bitty up until now. I can’t wait to take Vivi; as she already loves to dance. I am sure she will be as in awe as I was!

I think this dress would be adorable for her first time seeing the Nutcracker…and then for Christmas festivities. It has a touch of sparkle, and just the right amount of twirl…perfect for a Ballerina in training!
