Valentine's Duds for Kids

holiday best [kids!]

Whether it’s a holiday party, church service, nice dinner, or family pictures Holiday Best is so fun to shop for, in my opinion! Here are some of my favorites!

The boys got sent these amazing Lumberjack suits from Opposuits. Their whole site is full of amazing, loud, fun suits for men, women and kids!Opposite I LOVE Pepper Kids,( this black lace dress!) and Zara for unique pieces for girls! Of course Amazon always pull through with some quick ship options, too! Pair it with a rad coat, tights, or over the knee socks (both are in the carousel below this section!) boots, t-strap flats, or even sneakers if the mood is right.

Red Sweater Set // Plaid Dress (two colors!) // Layered Mustard Dress // Mustard Plaid with Pom ties // Retro Dress // This dress comes in 4 perfect colors is $25 and is giving me major Little Women vibes. // Glitter Dot Sweatshirt

More ideas for BOYS and GIRLS below, too!

Holiday Parties are the most fun to get dressed for IMO! You really just need ONE special piece to make it feel festive. But the best part is, you can layer on festive piece after festive piece and I don’t think anyone would look twice! Such a fun time to take risks! Here’s my favorite pieces that standalone or layer up for your next party.

Dress // Shoes

I’ve always been the type to wear pretty classic and plain pieces for top and bottom and then add the personality with shoes and accessories. And a killer coat! Here’s my favorite pairings that you could rock at a party with the most boring basic outfit you’ve got:

Shoe + Coat Pairings for the Holidays

  1. I love the edginess of this leather bomber jacket with the ultra feminine glitter bow pumps $48.
  2. This cheetah coat $36 is a must if you dress pretty boring otherwise (me!) I love it with these modern white mules $70. White in Winter is so chic and unexpected, too!
  3. I love jackets like this where the fur is removable $31, it has so much mileage that way! You could be wearing a black sweater and black jeans and these two give the whole thing instant appeal.
  4. This is the combo I wore in family pictures. This knit coat / duster $99 is unbelievably cozy and I think I’ve sold at least 10 of you that I know of on the studded wingtips. So rad!
  5. Obsessed with this hooded full-faux-fur bomber $68 Red lip and silver booties $47, would be cozy for caroling outdoors!
  6. Pretty, tailored, plaid coat already $100 off + 40% off right now, with some wild velvet pom pom heels $38. Over a plain black dress? It sings.
  7. Another removable fur coat, with perfect tailoring and a flattering tie waist! $200I love the mesh cut outs on this flat $89. Its 20% off too!

Another easy addition would be festive earrings, a bold lip, cute ankle socks or over the knee. Linking some below!

be kind and cozy

We have had so many amazing acts of kindness from the people in our new town it really has blown me away! Even my kids can’t help but notice which made me realize we really haven’t done much to be kind and helpful others in awhile! We were so turned inward trying to get our own tasks taken care of we lost that service oriented element! As we get closer to the holidays I really want to shift our focus off of ourselves and give back! Whether it’s raking leaves, taking trash cans back for neighbors, shoveling snowy walkways, or my kids favorite: delivering treats! Abercrombie Kids was on board with our mission and they got them all decked out for our outing so they could Be Kind and Cozy! Their site is 40% off today (50% for jeans and adults!) so don’t miss those awesome deals!

momiform faves

Momiform: Verb. The art of dressing for the infinitely multi-faceted job of parenting and running a household. Noun. The outfit you’ll wear again and again because it doesn’t get in the way of your day-to-day life.Momiform Faves: Button Downs

Hunter Green Top $15 – comes in 10 colors! // Thick Striped Button Down, under $20 in 5 colors! // Thin Striped Shirt with Tie $15 or less! // I have this black top in oatmeal and it’s so so comfy. This one comes in 16 colors and under $20. // Tie bottom denim shirt in two shades $21! //

My favorite at-home momiform is a loose fitting, short sleeve button down that is longer in the back so when I bend over nothing shows. Must be button-down because hey don’t cling to my mom pooch (I think it’s the weight of the buttons that keep it from settling), they’re easy to move and bend (read: clean) in, and short sleeved so I don’t have to mess with rolling sleeves up or getting too hot. I feel presentable if I do see another living soul and even if I don’t I feel better about myself than if I was in sweats or pajamas. Here are a bunch I found online right now since lots of you agreed and wanted to see what we found.

Madwell Courier or Central shirts are perfect for the job and all of these are on sale! The rest are incredibly affordable to begin with. Enjoy and have a great weekend!

best of: boys waterproof shoes

Boys Boots! It snowed a little bit up here this weekend so I am ON it for all my kids. Here’s what Ive liked from around the web. Ranging from $17 for these duck boots, on up!

Boys Rain Boot
Shoe Covers! Something to think about if you live in a climate that isn’t wet often, or if your kids insist on wearing “fast shoes” to school. Just mine? Button Clasp // Zipper  //$12 Shipped for these half boots in most colors! //  $40 Duck Boot // If you want just a basic welly here are two options! Solid Colors // Solids with Black Sole // Helly Hansen – Plain and Striped

white boot trend

The white boot trend caught my eye this past Spring but just now getting around to buying a pair! These were $25 at Charlotte Russe and of course sold out. I’ll be sure to update if I see them come back! But, let’s see how people in the fashion world are styling them  and of course I rounded up 16 of my favorite options from around the web! Happy weekend!!

Similar Boots // Turtleneck // Leather Jacket Jeans // Lip 

White boots started sticking out to me this past Spring but I LOVE them for Fall. I think the trick is finding boots that a little something other than white leather. A black heel or elastic, a silver stud pattern, a wood heel. Just something to break up all the white!

Snakeskin boot options to ease your way in. I’ve been wearing them daily and here’s some good lookers! 1. With buckles. // 2. The orange heel are you kidding?? // 3. Black buckles – Chloe knockoffs! // 4. Gold Buckles – Chloe knockoffs! // 5. Asymmetrical shaft // 6. Wood Heel + Goring // 7. Patent Go-Go style // 8.

A few other ways to style them!

ankle booties in every color

I decided recently that I am just an ankle bootie girl. I don’t need stilettos, or comfortable slides, or designer whatevers. Just get me a cool ankle bootie and I feel the most myself. But most importantly its what I want to wear every single day, so buying anything else really isn’t a good investment anyway. 😉 Now all I need is a bootie for every occasion. Here’s some faves!ankle booties in every shade

RED: I get asked about my old red boots all the time and these are a great plan B! The patent wears way longer than my suede ones. If you need inspiration for red boots just check my OOTD page where I styled mine 100 different ways. Ha! // ORANGE: These Rust boots might be my favorite Fall color. It’s an edgy boot so you could pair it with a feminine dress for some balance. YELLOW: MUST have these perfect mustard boots. Raw edge black denim and a rock tee. Done. // Hear me out on these Crocs. The neon yellow color is so fun and wild I can’t resist. I love the lacing and would have the best time splashing around in these on a rainy day.

GREEN: These hunter boots have that hint of Western that is huge right now in fashion but not too much that you won’t be able to wear them in a couple years.

BLUE: These royal blue Chinese inspired blue booties are only $40! More colors here! You could pull so many colors out of it to tie it together. Hot pink, red, gold, light blue. Would be stellar with a red wrap dress. // Navy Suede boots with a studded back? Hole-y boyfriend jeans, a baggy white blouse, BAM!

PURPLE: Purple was HARD to find but I never tire of my multi buckle boots and purple suede is so unexpected. It would spice up even the most basic outfit – tee and jeans!

PINK: These pointed kitten heel booties come in virtually every color and I NEVER go for pink but these feel so fresh! I’d probably wear it with my brown suede leggings and a striped turtleneck or multi colored sweater.

BROWN: These are more burgundy but also my favorite boot silhouette. I love a stacked platform ankle boot! So hot. Pencil skirt and a graphic tee with these? YES! // I love the smart menswear look of these rain boots. I’d wear them with black tights and a wraparound sweater dress. // This camel color bootie is perfection. I’d wear it with light wash looser fitting denim and a cozy sweatshirt. Perfectly casual but still polished.

GREY plaid bootie. Love this with a big ol’ navy chunky mock neck sweater and skinny jeans.

WHITE: Wasn’t sure about the white boot trend this Spring but I LOVE it for Fall. Especially with black detailing like in these pointed chelsea boots. Im loving the white boot trend so much I have a whole other round up for it!

BLACK: I’ve shared these before because they’re beautiful but worth repeating. I love an all black outfit and these military slash victorian inspired boots would carry the look no problem. // This lace-up combat boot with the white laces reminds me of my favorite boots from the Nordstrom Sale. No money for them then, but $25 now?? Sure thing.
