This month we’ve focused a lot on smaller shops we like. These posts have been so fun for me because I love celebrating entrepreneurs and people doing their own thing, going after their own dreams and doing good. These three shops are uniquely individual and offer some super cute products. Read their stories below and how we styled their products in this Favorites Roundup.
Their Story: Martine is the proud mother of two spirited boys with big imaginations. In her own words, being a mom has made me realize just how innocent children are. My boys have no idea that according to our society, certain things should be off limit to them including the color pink. The idea that a color is either masculine or feminine is absurd to me. I want my boys to grow up to become confident men who stay true to who they are. And that is what Quirkie Kids is all about: encouraging kids to embrace their uniqueness. Some boys like green. Some boys like blue and some boys like pink. And I say: why not? To me, Quirkie Kids is about more than just pink t-shirts. It’s about giving both boys and girls more options to express themselves through their clothing. Some girls like rainbows. Some girls like butterflies. And some girls like dinosaurs and I say: why not? Quirkie Kids makes tees that I hope you and your little one will love: comfy, fashionable, durable, and PINK!
Their Story: Simply just two gals making some rad clothes for cool kids. You must check out their shop of super cute tees for the littles. One of our favs is this “On Beach Time” tee.
This company is making a necessity with babies so chic! They deliver a fun package containing one reversible, 100% cotton bib, in a surprise print, straight to your crib. Not only are these practical but we found them to be a great fashion statement for our boys.
Nine years ago, Brooke and Adam became parents. With zero training and no baby manual included, the hospital actually let them take their son, Jude, home. Their small family grew from two to three and their parenting adventures began. Sleep training, feeding schedules, baby gear–all of it was trial by fire and they survived. (Let’s take a moment and celebrate that, shall we?) Three years later, they decided it was time to do it all over again and were blessed with another son, Liam.
Once a designer working for the likes of Todd Oldham, Fossil and Barbie, now a stay-at-home mommy, Brooke spent years wiping mouths, bottoms and everything in between. She now considers herself somewhat of a seasoned vet when it comes to bibs. Brooke believes bibs should stay put, keep clothes clean, look good and be comfortable.
When designing Fresh BiB, she considered all of that and made sure that their bibs would meet the highest standard in all areas. Balanced by her other half, Adam, an international photographer and hands-on daddy, the two set out to create a fun new product for parents. Fresh BiB was born out of a passion to give moms a surprise dose of fun each month while helping them clean up the daily mess that life brings. All designs are kid approved by their boys, who just happen to be ga-ga over babies – especially their little toes. Drool? Stains? Daily mishaps? They’ve got you covered.
Based in Nashville, Tennessee, The Sweet Fox was born from a love of all things little. In their own words, we enjoy cultivating a childs imagination, and filling their bright world with lovely things. We find joy in working with companies that are mindful of their practices, and kind to the planet we live on. Plus, 10% of all profits benefit the raining season.
