New Balance Kids Fresh Spring Looks!

New Balance kids is launching a new style, the Kids 990v4. The all-new 990v4 graduates with classic colors, cool technology, and an old school suede upper. This style is a direct take-down of an adult version that incorporates the same superior technology so kids can not only comfortably run around on the playground while strutting great style!

Jude & Ruby love their new “fast shoes”! Spring means lots of running, jumping and playing outside for my kiddos. The New Balance 990v4’s provide comfort, safety and old school charm.

Prepping for Holiday Fun with Famous Footwear!

Thank you to Famous Footwear for sponsoring this post!

On a scale of 1 to 10, my family is an 11 when it comes to loving the holidays. I feel like even stating that should be obvious? Because what’s not to love? Family, friends, sparkling decorations, tasty food, Christmas lights, parties, presents, cute outfits?! It’s basically the season my heart was made for. Every year, when prepping for the holidays, I like to shop for a few special outfits for the kids to wear for Thanksgiving, Christmas, school holiday shows, etc. I feel less guilty spending a little extra on these special outfits when I know lots of pictures will be taken on those days. Pictures I will treasure forever. I’m very sentimental, if you haven’t gathered that by now.

I’ve been trying to think outside of the box when putting together Ruby’s holiday outfits. The traditional ruffly, sparkly, twirly dresses are great, don’t get me wrong, but I thought it would be nice to try something a little more modern this year. Thankfully, Ruby and I do not struggle over what she is going to wear yet. I have fellow Mom friends who are constantly battling with their kiddos about what to wear (“YES TO HAVE TO WEAR PANTS TODAY!”) and I sometimes find myself holding my breath thinking PLEASE DON’T TURN ON ME, RUBY. She’s great about letting me do my thing. She seems to trust me when it comes to making her look cute. I try to include her in certain aspects of her outfits by offering her certain choices and allowing her to voice her opinions. So far for us, it works out great.

A few weeks ago I was looking over Famous Footwear’s #ohsofamous style gallery, looking for some shoe-spiration and asked Ruby if anything caught her eye. If you haven’t checked this yet, #ohsofamous is a fun place to get inspiration, explore what others are wearing, and see the variety that Famous Footwear offers.  Like all basic girls, she is obsessed with boots. So we took a look at Famous Footwear’s selection for little fashionistas and oh my goodness they have so many adorable options!

Here are some of my favorite shots of Miss Ruby Mae in one of her modern holiday outfits! How cute are these boots she chose?!

Let the Back to School shopping begin!

 

As the summer begins to wind down, so also starts the back to school prep excitement in our house. I was so pumped to find the classic black and white Chuck’s (and easy to pull on, because aint nobody got time for that) for Ruby. There is something about Converse All Stars that make me so sentimental. In High School, I wore these same shoes all day every day. Seeing these babies on Ruby’s feet makes me even more excited for another school year full of new friends, lessons and of course…cute outfits. These shoes make it easier because in my opinion, they go with everything. Pink dress and cat ears? Sure!

I don’t generally use checklists when it comes to back to school shopping (as I find it puts a damper on my ability to lack self control), however the top two must haves in my mind are new shoes & backpack. Growing up, my absolute favorite shopping trip of the year was for back to school. The feeling of fresh shoes and a sweet new rainbow backpack made me hopeful that the next year would be filled with happiness and new adventure. It was a way to express myself and to share with them a little bit of who I was, who I hoped they’d see me as. Of course, its not that deep for my kids yet. To them, everyone is their friend and any pair of shoes is fine as long as they are easy to put on and comfortable to run, jump, skip, kick, etc in.

Convenience is everything to me, I love being able to shop in one store for my whole family in one trip. Since I am a rewards member, when my local store is out of a size I need, they ship it right to my house – for free. All of my packages have arrive super fast too. I highly recommend this if you are as easily stressed out by trips out with your children that don’t involve wine as I am.
