Shoe shopping with kids in tow can be a nightmare. After age two, the age that a proper shoe fit really matters, it seems that they all of a sudden voice an opinion on everything, not to mention have the attention span of… well, zilch. While the process isn’t always fun, trying on your children’s shoes correctly before purchasing is an extremely important step that many of us skip. A little jog and a couple jumps in the store can not only save your child’s feet, but also your money in the long run.
Toddlers are the perfect mix of sugary sweetness and total insanity. They give us something to live for and exhaust us to the bone at the exact same time. Toddlers are also very fun to shop for during the holidays. Their clothing choices are the cutest and they really love to get new toys. Toddlers aren’t asking for laptops or smart phones. They just want to play all day. Don’t give the average, superstore type gift. Here are some incredible ideas for any toddler on your list this year that will fire up their imaginations and keep the sweet and insane fun going.
When you are making your Christmas list this holiday season you certainly cannot overlook the littlest additions to the family! Babies may be too young to realize that they are being gifted, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a good time to stock up on little things that you may need (or want)! Also, it is just so much fun to pick out things for babies, so if you have a few on your shopping list this year we have got you covered.
Whether your little ones are performing in a holiday school concert, visiting Santa’s workshop or attending your family’s Christmas Eve dinner, one thing is for sure: you’ll want them to look their very best! From gorgeous mini gowns fit for a princess and mod suits made for modern day Gene Kellys – to funky and festive ensembles for free spirits – to chic, modern and trendy threads for fashionistas, we’ve got your little ones covered from head to toe in our 2015 Ultimate Holiday Kids’ Kicks & Threads Guide.
We’ve all been there. On our way out the door, helping your child put on the shoes that you bought only a month ago and suddenly you’re struggling to get them on. Your child starts whining that they hurt their feet and you feel the angst of having to reach into your pocket and shell out more money for shoes so soon. Little feet grow faster than little legs, almost over night it often seems. While shoes can be expensive, especially if you’re forced to buy a new pair every few months, let alone every new season, there are a few ways to make the most of your shoe shopping experience so that when that time comes, you’ll be prepared — physically and financially.

Fall is here! Whether you live in the north where the classic description of “fall is in the air” rings true with orange leaves, bundling up in sweaters, and pumpkin spice lattes in cold hands or the south where fall is here by date only and you’re still rocking shorts and sweating buckets in the mid afternoon hours, fall by definition, is here. And everyone likes to start shopping for a new season, checking out the latest trends and seeing what their favorite brands have come out with.
The uniqueness of a child is unbridled. Whether they express their one-of-a-kind personality through their interests, hobbies, friendships, or communication, one thing is certain: a child’s wardrobe tells all. You might have an outgoing, headstrong toddler girl who gravitates towards tutu skirts and glitter, or a quiet, plays-by-the-rules, sensitive soul elementary school son who prefers a more comfortable, sensible look. However your child chooses to express themselves through their wardrobe this fall season, you want to encourage their sense of personal style while also being able to grab the reigns on the checkbook, not to mention avoiding the dreaded retail stores that are a parent’s worst nightmare.
It’s that time of year when imagination and inspiration collide, when both adults and children get to forgo the norm and be anyone… or anything… they so desire!

Do you want to wow the crowd with a dynamic family costume this year? Are they studying a particular era in social studies class that interests them? Find all of this out, then head over to Chasing Fireflies to find costumes that truly stand out from the rest.
As the temperatures start to drop, the days become shorter, and as kids shuffle back and forth to the school bus, you know that fall is upon us. While you’re packing up your daughter’s brightly colored summer shorts, tank tops, and swimsuits, don’t believe the myth that a fall wardrobe needs to be drab, dark, and dreary. We’re here to share with you one of our favorite clothing brand’s fall collection that is anything but brown and boring.
On March 14, 2014, the micro-fashion world was introduced to Kardashian Kids – a signature collection of stylish, affordable clothing for tots from none other than the most fashion-forward trio of sisters – Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian, themselves. In true Kardashian fashion, Kardashian Kids has taken over the mini fashion runways and has been a leading hashtag in the micro-fashion social media world over the last year since its introduction.
Toddlers are inevitably cute. They’re cute when they’re wearing meticulously styled outfits, they’re cute when they’re wearing just their diaper, and they’re even cute when they’re wearing the entire bowl of strawberry yogurt you just gave them for breakfast. It’s amazing, really, how they can pull that off.
Even though toddlers manage to look cute in pretty much any outfit you put them in – there’s just something about seeing a tiny little person dressed to the nines in white Babiator shades and a perfect ruffled bodysuit that makes your heart skip a beat. If only adults could pull off thigh rolls so flawlessly.
But what is it that really sets super stylish tots apart, and how can you keep your munchkin on trend and on budget? Just follow these 6 rules to shop by and your little one will be turning heads before you can say “those markers are washable, right?!”
