rockwellOne more blog post today! Have you heard about this new fabulous bag? Here’s the top 10 reasons why this xrossover bag by 84Rockwell must be on your xmas list this year!

1. It’s fashion forward AND functional! When do you ever really find that combo???

2. You can wear it to run out to the gym, yoga, pilates, etc. and fit all your essentials (phone, id, lipgloss, credit card, cash and more etc).

3. It’s HANDS FREE! Yup, hands free! Seriously the best thing ever when running errands, loading kids and bags into your car, shopping, walking the dog, getting a manicure…….. you get the jist!

4. It’s super stylish – love it over a dress or with a silk top and skinny jeans. Pretty much goes with everything. Very cool ladies. And guess what? it’s so new you can really be in front of the trend with this!

7. It’s great for holiday travel! and really for travel in general. It even has a secret zipper pocket on the back/inside.

8. My boys want one…. and they call it a utility belt – kinda like something batgirl would wear. I mean, if batgirl would wear it, well, then it must be cool.

9. Local founder is based in Chicago – and such a trendsetter herself!!

10. And finally, if you must have one more reason, well, cause you really don’t have anything like this!!

Little Boys Style!


, , , , , , , ,

GILT is one of my top destinations for little boys clothes. The styles are adorable and the brands they carry at discounted prices make them so affordable! Plus, you can’t beat finding KISS t-shirts for $13 (search KISS and you will find them!) and of course shopping online makes it fast and easy!

Here’s what we’ve recently picked up and have loved! Use the links below to search for the items on GILT. Since they are from a few weeks ago, I don’t have direct links, but you can use the titles below to search and easily find these exact items that I highly recommend!

Jake & Rivington Screen Tee – we picked the Squirrel! Also there is a red version with a fox and a grey version with a bear!! It’s too cute! My little model loved this shirt! Runs small so order 1 size up.

Mi & O Double Waisted pants! Such a great pull on option for little boys. The double waist is so functional and helps keep pants up on a smaller frame (no hassle with a button and zipper!). Run true to size.

Dartmoor Toggle Sweater – so adorable! Perfect for Thanksgiving and even family pictures!! Runs small so order 1 size up (I ordered a 4 for my 3 year old and an 8 for my almost 7 year old).


One more item I almost forgot – this Barn Jacket by Brooks Brothers is great!! Perfect for layering! Runs true to size.


Don’t forget to check out the Mens, Womens and Home sale items too!
