Last time we did a post with Crocs we pleasantly surprised a lot of you with their new styles! Today we’re sharing two new styles for this Summer 2017 season that we really dig and we think you will too! We had lots of fun coming up with this birds eye idea and I about died laughing when Cal complained “its so hard!” eventually I had him pretend he was dead and I just posed him like a mannequin. Kids these days! The campaign is #ComeAsYouAre, so I guess their little crazy personalities fit right in to that, right? First, the Swiftwater! If you have outdoor Summer plans to maybe a lake, the beach or even the pool (my boys big toes always get these little cuts on them from the bottom of the pool and it’s so sad!) these elastic water shoes are so great! They don’t slip off even in a current so you can take them river rafting, or to the beach and rest easy you won’t lose a shoe!The next style we really like is the Roka! It comes in these amazing colors and it is a great shoe for play but holds up and cleans up perfectly so you can easily transition to dinner or something a little bit more put together than those lazy Summer days. Again, this shoe can get wet so take it through the splash pad, puddles, sprinklers, and then rinse it off and onto the next activity! My boys loved the red, navy and lime green colors!“Dive” into their whole Summer line here!

Beauty Faves like Batiste have coupons currently. Shave off some dollars on stuff you’re buying anyway, we say!

This Himalayan Sea Salt Scrub is awesome and half off!

We were sent this Vichy Double Glow Peel Mask to try out and it is amazing! Its also confusing because its not a peel, you simply wipe it off, but you will see amazing results on the texture and smoothness of your skin in just one use, promise! Its become an instant fave over here.

Feminist Baby likes pink and blue.Sometimes she’ll throw up on you!Feminist Baby chooses what to wear and if you don’t like it she doesn’t care!
Its all about owning your power as a woman no matter how big or small! Super great messages to pass along to our youngest feminists. No matter what your feelings on the F word 😉 I think we can all agree that empowering girls from a young age is so important!
After our post yesterday we realized some of you babes have yet to discover Romwe! There are probably lots of shops just like this but we’ve had great luck with them. Their sizing, collection and info have rarely steered us wrong. What is Romwe? It’s basically your ticket to China. Instead of buying these items through a big box store or a boutique, get them straight from the source at incredibly cheap prices. Like nothing is over $30. Sweet! Here’s some more faves on top of the items we wore in yesterday’s post! Also for those who asked the platform oxfords in today’s Instagram are right here.
You may have noticed an influx in film around here and that is because our own photographer Nicole has been dabbling and as with all her talents and skills, became crazy good real fast. So we wanted to share her latest film with This Tribe a darling girls leotard brand for everyday or dance days, too! We grew up as ballerinas, but if class had been this fun, we might have stuck it out longer! This Tribe is launching this line today at 10 am MST so don’t miss it, because as with all This Tribe leos, they go fast!Here’s a peek at their other combos, we love them all!! Also if you’re a brand or shop that wants to see your product come to life on film Nicole is offering up a few spots, email us for more info!
Oh boy, it’s getting colder! Fall is so fleeting here in Utah and try as we might to enjoy every second, it always seems to slip away! Adventuring is easy and so amazing in the Fall we’re doing our very best to keep it up even when the Winter hits! Skiing, sledding, snowy hikes, whatever it takes! I worked with Kamik via Zappos to get my boys all set for whatever this weather might throw at them. Kamik is a new-to-us brand and the thing that impressed me most right off the bat is how they’re super sturdy and waterproof, but not heavy! I also love that the shaft of the boot is nice and tall but basically made of canvas so it doesn’t add weight or bulk but still keeps the elements out. We snagged this pair and love them!Dressing my boys in the colder months means beautiful jackets, warm knitted accessories like scarves and hats. And soft (not itchy though!) sweaters for layering. And a new favorite, denim on denim! Try it out!
Browsing Amazon’s curation of Athleisure (a trend we love for ourselves but hate for our kids. When will the basketball shorts-to-school trend ENDDD?!) They always have the best round-ups, but we couldn’t help but spot one recurring favorite in the mix: PUMA!
We see you Puma. Bein’ awesome. Here’s the work out pants that caught our eye and are super affordable between $40-$60! When you’re used to the lulu price tag, these are a breath of fresh air!
Now that we’re a week or two into Off Duty posts (find, Emily,Jenna and Nicole’s looks everyday on the left sidebar!) we’ve gotten this question quite a bit… “Hey Small Fry, where can I find ____ sunglasses for cheap?” We get it and we feel you. We all have the designer sunglass sickness, but that sure as shooting doesn’t mean you have to as well! SO! Have you heard of ZeroUV? They have millions of frames, they’re all on trend, modern, and *cough* look alikes to more expensive styles elsewhere. We are not condoning the replica insdustry per-se, but here are some that are eerily similar to what you’ve seen us wearing lately, and a few rad pairs that we’ve bought just researching this post. Way to go ZeroUV!
One thing we get asked frequently is where to find suits for our boys! Whether its fora special occasion, church, family pictures, there is nothing cuter than a tiny guy in a suit! Anytime we see cute brands we like to share and this UK brand Roco has such a great variety! First, they ship in these tiny garment bags. So cute!
And now behold Hayes and Dash. They were being so cute, all we had to do was snap some pictures.
Dash is wearing the black three piece suit. It comes with a vest, white shirt, jacket, pants, tie and pocket square! Such a steal!
Hayes is in the grey suit and they fit true to size maybe a titch small. They are both wearing 6-7 here and they’re going to be growing out of them real quick, sad!!
These suits are super thick and hold their shape so well. These would be perfect for a wedding or all day event because they look good for hours even with rough play like these boys are always doing.
You can see these suits have a nice slim cut which we love and vented back jackets
Comparing lost teeth:Then best part of Roco Suits is the variety. They have SO many different patterns, combinations and fabrics. Check them all out here!
