A Real Deal – Dec 2013

From time to time I  like to share some of the goodies that we get in the mail and how we pull some of these sales together into super cute outfits.   Chances are many of you bought either or both of the items shown below and  I hope this will give you some ideas on how to style some of your new goodies! These two piece that I am featuring today are from past sales but ones that are currently on sale right now.

You guys know how excited that I am about these awesome One Jackson promos so I was excited to pair this cute sweatshirt with a great pair of La Miniatura pants.

Top: You can score this top for just  $7.25 (RV  $43) when you take advantage of the extra 50% off code.  Available in a variety of color.  This is a 3 on Jake.  Details on the sale here.

Pants: These pants are the La Miniatura Vintage Black jeans.  These are a 3 on Jake and are pretty tight.  You can score these for $37 (RV $62) with that new 40% off Look.com code that I posted.  Details on that sale here.   Or if you need a size 6 you can grab them on sale at Vau.lt for $38 shipped and most accounts got a $10 credit though tonight that would make them just $28. See those here.

Shoes:  I don’t have any deals on the shoes.  Actually I am drying to even find a pair.  If any of you have these old All Saints Rum Collapse boots and want to sell them let me know! (Kara, I am talking you and your two pairs)

So, you can pick up both these pants and the top for under $35 or $45 (retail value $105) and wear them together or mix and match them with other things that you already own.

JakeTrends: Layer It Up

I just updated www.JakeTrends.com with 11 new entries.  The themes this week seems to be layering and getting out our long sleeves.   I love basic layering in the Fall! It just gives an outfit a little punch and also helps you get some more wear out of your warmer weather styles.   He wore several pieces from the new H&M All for Children line and has been rocking these Old Soles Lift shoes a lot.  This color is sold out but other colors still available.  I think I need to snag the red ones too!  These are a 10 on him and fit with some room.  He is a 9.5/10 these days.

Check out the newest additions to JakeTrends here.  Brands featured this week include Tea Collection, Little Maven,  Bit’z Kids, Quinn & Fox and more!

Here is just a peek! Check out the blog to see it all!

JakeTrends: Boys Will Be Boys

I just updated JakeTrends.com with several new outfits.  This week is a little lame.  No sweet combos or fab new trends but a heck of a lot of 2yr old boy.  This kid loves comfy knits that wash well and that he can just live in.  Pants optional.  Nailpolish a necessity.  Plus a sweet ride.

Check out the newest additions to JakeTrends here.  Brands featured include KicKee Pants, Rowdy Sprout, City Threads, Fore!! Axel & Hudson, Mini Boden and more.

The best boy’s boots EVER!

We recently purchased the new Hungry boots from Livie and Luca’s Fall collection and I am in LOVE.  These are without a doubt the best boot ever for you little guy!

The mix of grey and chocolate brown / almost black will go with a ton and your son will get the biggest kick out of the back.

Sizes under 9 are made with the trac sole and may run just a hair small but sizes 10+ have the wavy sole and are very true to size.

You can purchase these via Livie and Luca’s site, Amazon, Little Abbey Boutique or any of your favorite Livie and Luca retailers.

JakeTrends: Superheros and Stripes!

I just did a big update to www.JakeTrends.com.  Lately we have been loving Superheros and bold stripes, mixing brands and creating some great age appropriate looks!  Jake is now 2.5 years old and I know that sometimes dressing a toddler boy can been seen as a challenge with so many graphic tees, dungarees and sneakers flooding the market.  But I encourage you to think outside the box.  Mix and match the designers that you love to create new fun looks.  This is how some of the best outfits are made!

Nothing screams two and half like playing the roll of superhero!

Check out www.JakeTrends.com for the scoop on all of these outfits pictured!  Brands include Morfs, Mini Shatsu, Bit’z Kids, Rugged Butts, H&M, Mini Boden, Appaman, Zara, Tea Collection, FORE!! Axel & Hudson and more.

Little Maven Fox line “in real life”!

I know that many of you were really interested in the new Little Maven for JCP Fox line for boys.  {see post here}  I went into the store and took a bunch of pictures for you!  The strange thing is that things were more expensive in store for me vs online.

In regards to sizing.  Things were true to size to small.  I am getting 3Ts for Jake.  Pants are slim.  Have adjustable waistband.

Quality is great.  Not amazing high end boutique style but much better than most dept store brands and really great for the price.  I really loved the fox shirt in person!

See the collection here

Here are some pictures.  I included a couple of the girl’s things at the end that I though were cute!

Taylor Joelle Giveaway!

Congrats Noura!

So, this week I have teamed up with Taylor Joelle for a little style and a little giveaway!  If you check out their style blog you will notice a little Abby this week.  We did a fun style shoot showcasing some fun outfits using a few Taylor Joelle essentials.

With three basic styles we used existing pieces that we had in the closet to create some fun looks!  For reference I will include the names and links below each picture.  In all photos she is wearing size 4 leggings and they fit her perfect.  The top is a size 6 and is a little generous now but perfect to grow into.  The 4 would have been too small on her.

The shoes in all pictures are the Gold Livie and Luca Celestina.  I think they go great with the Make Your Wish Collection! Its sometimes tough to find good neutral shoes to pair with bold pants and these fit the bill perfectly!

[Navy & White Striped Leggings * Ruffle Sleeve Lace Top * Coral & White Striped Leggings]

Ruffle Sleeve Lace Top *Persnickety Orange Mae Shorts * Peppercorn Kids necklace]

[Ruffle Sleeve Lace Top * Coral & White Striped Leggings]

[Ruffle Sleeve Lace Top * Coral & White Striped Leggings * Matilda Jane Sundew dress]

[Mini Boden Tee Coral & White Striped Leggings *

[Navy & White Striped Leggings * Mini Boden Tee]

[Navy & White Striped Leggings * Persnickety Red Lou Lou top * Peppercorn Kids necklace]

As you can tell we had a lot of fun putting together these combos and I think we found some amazing matches!

The leggings and lace top were a part of the Make Your Wish and Midnight in Manhattan collections.  Some items have sold out but there are still many available to purchase.  Many of the pieces are great basics that you can mix and match with items you already own or pair together for adorable outfits!

Taylor Joelle is also getting ready to release their newest collection called Black Tie.  Black, white, and bows is what this collection is all about. Designed to be comfortable,cute, and on trend; there is something for everybody both sweet and sassy.  You can preview all of the items now but they will not be available to order until June 28th.  At that time everything will be ready to ship so no pre-orders are required.

Shupeas: Review + Giveaway

Congrats to Heather J!

In the 2nd installment of my New Year, New Friends segments this week I want to share something new for the babies.   Today we are talking baby shoes and I want to share our experience with Shupeas with you.  These are the most versatile baby shoe out there and just one pair will cover your children through 4 sizes covering up to age 24 months.  And they are super cute!

Shupeas have been dubbed Growing Shoes for Growing Feet.   These come in styles for boys and girls and are available in 100% soft leather and non-leather vegan collections.  The pictures will show it all but these are expandable in both the heal and the toe and the adjustable Velcro straps are guaranteed to  not leave elastic marks around ankles.  They have a wide opening allow for easy on and off, slip resistant, flexible suede soles and are made for both indoor and light outdoor use.

Since Jake has giant feet and is already in a size eight  I wasn’t able to try these out on him but luckily his little girlfriend Brynn is petite and they worked perfect for her!  She tried out the Soft Pink Cupcake Mocassin.

 

I asked Rachel what she thought of these and she said:

“As soon as I took them out of the box I fell in love with the soft, supple leather and adorable embroidered cupcake detail.  They look so cute on my little one’s feet!  And really, the whole concept is just so clever!  I love the idea of being able to get more wear out of pair of shoes that grows with my child.  “

This is a great new idea!  And these baby shoes aren’t only good for your own children but would make a great baby gift too!

You can watch this video to see a bit more on how these work!

Styles

These come in several styles for boys and girls!  You can view them all here but there are my favorites!

Brown Football - SKU 818873013054Blue Rocket - SKU 818873013047

Our Next Direct Zebra Dress

Ok, so season after season I remind you guys not to forget about Next Direct.  This UK based site has super affordable clothes that are great quality.  Plus, 10 other kids won’t be wearing the same thing at school!

Next asked me if I wanted to participate in a little styling challenge this Fall.  They send me a piece of clothing from their Fall line and we style it with items currently in our closet!  Of course, I jumped at this opportunity because I LOVE doing this.   We got sent the Zebra Jumper Dress and we jumped right into the dressing it up right away!  This dress is perfect in its own way and really didn’t need much more than some cute leggings and adorable shoes!

First, lets talk about the actual dress. Here are some images capturing the details of this adorable jumper dress.  I love the buttons on the shoulder.  I really love the elbow patches.  And Abby things that it is SO COOL that the Zebra has a bow in her hair!

And then Abby tried it on!  We paired it with simple flats, riding pants &  houndstooth boots, cream leggings & flats and then cream leggings & uggs.  All outfits were cute and appropriate for different temperatures as we head into Fall and Winter!  And I have to add that Abby was really excited about the Zebra and her stuffed Baby Koala bear bring friends.  It was cute!  This is a size 4/5 on Abby for reference.  She is 3.5 and 40″ 38 lbs.

And apparently this dress has magical powers because for once she was being sweet to her little brother and they shared a brief front porch hug!

You can click here to shop at Next Direct.  Shipping is always free on orders of $40+.

 

And as part of this campaign I was asked to capture a quick video!  And here is what Abby had to say!

Our Next Direct Dungarees

Ok, so season after season I remind you guys not to forget about Next Direct.  This UK based site has super affordable clothes that are great quality.  Plus, 10 other kids won’t be wearing the same thing at school!

Next asked me if I wanted to participate in a little styling challenge this Fall.  They send me a piece of clothing from their Fall line and we style it with items currently in our closet!  Of course, I jumped at this opportunity because I LOVE doing this.   We got sent the Signature Denim Dungarees and we jumped right into the styling!   I am not really into the whole Polyvore thing but I love the bring a bunch of stuff down and have my own real-life kitchen table version of Polyvore.

First, lets talk about the Dungarees themselves.  These are so cute!  They are all snaps (no annoying buttons) and super adjustable.  The suspenders are adjustable and the even have the hidden inside adjustable waistband.   They even have snaps down the inside of the legs for easy diaper changes.  I love that the back looks like suspenders only but the front looks like overalls.  The little brown suede details and the stars really make them stylish.  This is a size 1.5 – 2 yrs on Jake.  They are a hair big but I wanted them to fit throughout the Fall.

Here are some images capturing the details.

So, then I got to styling these and it was SO easy because they look cute with everything!

Here is what I came up with for Jake!

My favorite look was the top one!  It is the one that I laid out first and I just knew it would work perfectly!  Jake was so handsome and it is a great everyday layered look for Fall! The cardigan can easily be removed and the navy cotton shirt still looks great on its own!

I can’t  wait until it cools off a bit and I can get Jake into these adorable Dungarees!

Let’s Talk Layering featuring Tea Collection

Ok, so I posted about Tea Collection‘s new Fall line a couple of weeks ago (read post here) and just received my Fall order!  I am LOVING what I choose and so are the kids!  I love Tea Collection for keeping it comfortable.   The knits are so soft and wash up really well.    But one of my favorite things is how I can make each piece for through the seasons and put together so many outfits from just a few pieces.   I took my 3 new pieces to the closet and was surprised at how easy it was to make up outfits.  And I mean CUTE outfits!  I could have kept going and going.  I am excited to share what I put together with you guys!

First up is Jake!  I got Jake the Fire Brigade Tee from the Fall line.  This is a size 2 on him which is pretty right on.  He is a very big 16 month old and getting into 2Ts in most brands.  So, I went into his closet and pulled out 4 more Tea Collection pieces that we either bought ahead or that still fit from Spring/Summer.  I grabbed a knit polo, thermal striped shirt, his Chambray shorts and his Navy French Terry Cargo Pants. For reference the polo is a 2T and the striped thermal, shorts and pants are all 18-24 months.

So, this is what I started with.

So, I will let the pictures do the talking but we started with the tee and shorts which is perfect for Summer.  Then we did the knit polo and shorts with sandals for early Fall.  After that we threw the tee over the polo, keeping the shorts and sandals.  This was SO cute! Perfect Fall look!  Next he wore the thermal top and cargo pants as a super comfortable option.  We layered the tee over that to spice it up a bit and easily get us through Winter!  You could easily make more outfits with these 5 pieces.  So, this is something that I love about Tea Collection.  The pieces flow from season to season and while each release focuses on a new and exciting destination they still keep their signature style throughout the line!  Never underestimate the power a long sleeved tee!  It instantly turns your tee shirts into year-around tops.  Jake has the Tea Collection Purity Tees in several colors and I love to use those but don’t be afraid to use polos, thermals, oxfords or more under your everyday t-shirts.

Check out this cuteness!

So, up next was Abby’s turn!  I got her the Laululintu tee from the new Fall line as well as the Butterfly dot dress from the 10th Anniversary Collection.   I got both in a size 5 since she is growing so fast.  She was in 4Ts all Summer so I went in with the 5s to be safe.  She is 41″ tall and 38 lbs for reference.

So, the picture above shows what I pulled out in my brainstorming layering session.  The top shows the Tea Collection pieces that I grabbed to mix and match with my new stuff!  I grabbed the Radiant Rice top and both my navy and cream Pointelle leggings.  Then in the bottom picture I went kind of crazy!  I just started grabbing things to play with and of course cute shoes!

Here are the pictures of what I came up with.

As you can see in the above pictures this one Tea Collection dress can span all seasons! We also did the Laululintu tee which I am in LOVE with!  For this one I went a little outside the box and grabbed some other things from the closet to pair with it!  I am dying over how perfect the Livie and Luca black Pio Pio shoes look with this top!  We did a Summer look and a Fall look and you can easily throw a cardigan over it or a long sleeve tee under it and make a Winter outfit!  The bloomers pictured below are A.Bird and the black ruffle leggings are by KPea Original.

So, who is excited for some Fall layering?  You will see a lot of this in the coming months on www.AbbyTrends.com and www.JakeTrends.com!  And please feel free to share your cute layered looks on the NewDayNewDeals Facebook page!

Are you loving these looks?  Click here to shop at TeaCollection.com!

Shoes in this shoot are Livie and Lucas.  Because that is how we roll! :)
