What should I blog about today? My life? My interests? My new blog?
One of our favorite photo shoots to date is this Valentine’s Day! The photographer for the shoot is Utah-based Little Mae Photography, the accessories were provided by Cozette Couture, and the backdrop was provided by Pearl and Jane.
Today we are so excited to be featuring one of our favorite clothing companies, Persnickety Girls Boutique. They just released their spring collections – Forget Me Not and Dandelions and Daffodils. Persnickety does not cease to amaze with their gorgeous, unique prints and fabric combinations that you will not find from any other brand.
The Forget Me Not collection is full of bright greens, pinks, blues and yellow, making it the perfect choice for your spring shopping. And in true Persnickety form, the clothing is fully lined and silky soft, so your daughter will be thrilled to wear these outfits all spring and into summer!
One of the best staple pieces from Persnickety’s Dandelions and Daffodils collection for spring is the Hazel shorts. These are the perfect light weight combination of denim and linen, and will go fabulously with any outfit. We love pairing them with the Stella Denim jacket, shown below.
Persnickety is now available for purchase at over 300 online and retail partners, and I have included links to several of my favorites below. This collection will be my first stop for spring shopping this season!

We recently came upon the Summer 2015 Lookbook for Z8 children’s clothing from the Netherlands and we couldn’t be more in love with their style. The bright colors and sensible tops, bottoms and accessories are like an European Gap. While only a few sites will ship these stylish kids clothes internationally, their summer lookbook is definitely a photography inspiration to all countries.
The colorful, hippie-inspired children’s photos are colorful and filled with fantastic props such as 70’s VW vans, pastel rollerskates, and vintage string lights. Here’s to hoping Z8 brings their chic styles to the U.S. a.s.a.p.!!
Getting my daughter off her ipad and outside can be a challenge. But one thing that always motivates her to get active is a cool new outfit to practice her cartwheels and front walkovers. For moms, there are not a lot of options when it comes to shopping for girls activewear. Target has some great, sensible options, but many times, my daughter will end up with the same outfit from Target as every girl in her tumbling class.
I love finding unique active tops, leggings and shorts that no one in her class has. Nordstrom’s Tween and little girls sections has a great variety of girly kids workout wear by Zella that is affordable enough that I can buy all the matching pieces to an outfit. Colorful shorties, flattering leggings and capris, and the jackets that go along with them. If your daughter has not tried the Zella Girl line at Nordstrom, I recommend heading over their this second, and promise you will not be disappointed! Their Zella Girls is certainly up-to-par with their Zella women’s workout wear.
I am all in favor of activewear for girls, so when Zara introduced their new Sporty Girls collection for girls ages 5-14, I was instantly hooked. Zara is already a fashion staple in my daughter’s wardrobe. I love how their high-fashion, European -esque styles are also easy to wear on an every day basis. Sensible enough to wear even to school.
Their Sporty Girls collection is no different. The line maintains Zara’s commitment to high-quality, long-wearing fabrics and flattering fits. The collection is a pretty pink and black combo, and includes bags and shoes, to cover all the bases no matter what your daughter does for activities and extra-curriculars. The best part of this collection, however, may be the price – ranging from $6.90 for the sporty no-show socks to $45.90 for pink tennis shoes.
See below for some of our faves from the new collection and visit Zara’s website for all the pieces.

Animal prints for girls are everywhere in the newly releasing spring and summer 2015 styles for kids, and I can’t get enough of them. From aqua leopard iphone cases to leopard swimsuits, the designs give a fun twist to any outfit. Vans Authentic shoes are even getting in on the action, see one of the pairs from their collaboration with J. Crew crewcuts turquoise cheetah print below. See where to find these awesome animal print items below and your tween girl will be looking fabulous all spring.
Tutu Du Monde‘s stunning February 2015 collection – About a Girl – may be their best yet. The draping, elegant tulle is luxuriously layered and paired with jewel-encrusted bodices that create a fabulous ensemble.
If you are not familiar with Tutu Du Monde’s designs, here is a little background info from their website:
Capturing the spirit, innocence and freedom of childhood, the essence of Tutu Du Monde shines through each exquisite piece – from the signature tutus to seasonal capsule collections featuring perfectly coordinated items such as headdresses, jewellery, capelets and ballet slippers. Celebrating the imaginations of little (and big) girls the world over, a Tutu Du Monde garment is truly unique – just like its wearer – and is perfect for all occasions, from playing dress-ups to flower girl.
Each Tutu Du Monde item is an expression of the love that is poured into them, from the design stage in Australia, to their production in India by a group of extremely talented ladies who are proud to use the skills handed down to them through their families.
Reminiscent of ethereal French ballet costumes, all Tutu Du Monde garments are of the highest quality, hand-crafted and hand-dyed with an old-world feel… dusty pastels, silk ties, sparkly sequins, crystal beads and wisps of feathers applied to the softest natural cotton, finest tulle and silk organza. Tutu Du Monde pieces are divinely comfortable, with a focus on simple, timeless designs, breathable, lightweight fabrics, and with stretch and softness. They are made to last and become more lovely with wear as slight fading and fraying edges adds to their charm.
The pure theatricality and transformational nature of Tutu Du Monde is guaranteed to bring a sparkle to the eye and warmth to the heart. And, so much more than a piece of clothing, a Tutu Du Monde garment is designed to be treasured for decades to come, creating powerful memories to pass on through the generations.
At the heart of Tutu Du Monde is a sense of pure joy. Quite simply, little girls blossom when they step into a Tutu Du Monde garment and begin to daydream!
