“Child, What You Got On?” :: Trendy Tot Styles for Fall

*This post contains affiliate links*

Dear fellow stylish Moms,

This is where we are. This is what we have become (I wish you could see my face right now) and for the record, this is Maris’ idea of “gardening clothes” that she styled herself. (I won’t lie, I think they are adorable gardeners). As my Mimi would say, “Child, what you go on?”img_3086

It’s the end of summer (well here in the South it’s still hot as hades outside) and we are swiftly approaching fall, a time which I love because of so, SO, SOOOO many reasons. There’s the PSL (Pumpkin Spice Latte’ for those not familiar coffee drinkers), sweaters and wearing sweatshirts with leggings as my staple clothing item, cooler weather so I don’t die from heat exhaustion at the park. Fall just rocks. That being said, we are closing out the summer and this mama is not buying anymore “its hot outside” clothes because of the changing season. My kiddos then style themselves with our summer leftovers and the aforementioned photo is what you get.

Fear not, courageous moms who brave the grocery and Wal Mart with kids wearing Spidermen costumes and princess ball gowns. We will prevail through this kid-fashion funk because of some awesome resources that I am in the midst of using myself! As you know, I am truly obsessed with subscription box services, especially those that style clothing for you and allow you to not have to drag Spider-Man and little Princess Sophia out shopping. The best thing is most of the boxes allow free shipping both ways, have low styling fees, are customized for your child, and reasonably priced. Here are some of my absolute favorite brands that I’m using for Maris’ and McClain’s fall wardrobes!

Request a Box

  • Mac & Mia  – My go to for toddler outfits. Subscription box styling service that has seriously the nicest stylists to work with and outstanding customer service! You sign up using a quick and simple style profile for each kiddo, select a box, and Wallah! It’s in the mail and ready for you to have a fit over. You pay for what you keep and no monthly commitment – so get a box when YOU are ready! Pricing is also great with average outfits around $35 and $12 accessories . Kristin has been our stylist recently and she is preparing an upcoming fall box for M&M, which is on the way (I’ll review it soon)! I cannot rave enough about her and the products of Mac & Mia . If you’re in the market for one of these boxes, this is a great starter!

Order your first box of baby or kids clothing from Mac & Mia. Shipping is free both ways.

  • Runchkins – Another great mail order styling service for kids that is new on the market and ready to send you goodies! These guys are pros at styling that is a great value, customizable (in case your little one hates elastic things or “scratchy” material), and a great price point because YOU set your budget! You get free shipping and purchase only the pieces that you love. Biggest PLUS?? This company allows you to SELL BACK ANY PIECE for store credit when your little one outgrows it! I know, I know – That’s a done deal. When in doubt, try Runchkins out (you liked that rhyme?!)

  • Just Fab Kids – I have always and will always love Just Fab Kids because of it’s accessibility and great specials they are always running. Just as their parent brand, Just Fab, they focus on monthly subscription boxes but you can choose to “shop or skip” a box after reviewing your style profile online. Most boxes average $29 and clothing is geared at being stylish and “play ready” which is a plus for this mama! They also include a VIP (Very Impressive Parent) program that offers extra specials and discounts, early access to collections, member sales, and more.



Because I love these three services so much, they have given me some pretty awesome coupon codes and discounts! Make sure you give them a try and click on the links above (pics and texts). Send some pics of your little ones with their boxes! Stay tuned for some *Interesting* giveaways and box reviews in the next few weeks too! Happy Shopping!



MunchPak :: A Review


Love Food. Hate the store?

Dear hungry reader,

You know I’m a fan of subscription boxes. In the land of Mom, there aren’t many things that get me more excited each day. I feel like a kid again, rushing to the mailbox to see if there’s something there because let’s face it – getting actual MAIL that isn’t a bill is FUN. It brightens your day! And when it’s food related, umm – WIN WIN.


The kind folks at <a href=”http://MunchPak.com“>MunchPak sent me this yummy box to review and  I have to admit it was interesting to say the least – but we LOVED how different it was! <a href=”http://MunchPak.com“>MunchPak is a monthly subscription box service that sends you a box of candy and snacks from all over the world. You get to choose the size of your <a href=”http://MunchPak.com“>MunchPak (ranges from Mini which has 5 snacks to family size, which has 20) and it ships within 72 hours.


This month we received a box with snacks from Japan. Inside there were Sour Cream and Onion Hunky Dory’s (chips) Rountrees Jelly Dots, and Cream Collons (which were like a small crème puff). These snacks were actually really tasty, and although I wouldn’t know where to begin to buy them (other than the <a href=”http://MunchPak.com“>MunchPak website), I definitely wouldn’t have been able to try them otherwise. There was also some kind of marshmallow wafer/chocolate/pistachio dust snack pack included that was completely written in Japanese and we weren’t sure what it was, but Coach tried it and thought it was really good! img_3011

If you are looking for a fun way to engage your kiddos and teach them about another culture, I think this is a great start. M&M were fascinated by the packaging which I thought was great – colorful and bright, and the cost is very reasonable starting at $9.95 plus shipping.

Since <a href=”http://MunchPak.com“>MunchPak likes me so much, they gave me some coupon codes to give out in case you wanted to try a Pak or two! Happy Munching!

Where Did All The Holidays Go?

Dear Holiday Season,

Where did you go? Honestly. I went with Maris & McClain to the store today to do a quick bit of shopping. Here in the South it’s still sweltering outside and we walked in the front doors drenched in sweat and smelling like “outside funk”. I put the girls in the buggy and walked in to find every red, green, and gold Christmas item you could find in the first aisle of the store. Of course, my daughters thought this was absolutely wonderful because Santa “must be coming down the chimney tomorrow night”. When I explained that it was only October and we hadn’t even made it halfway to Halloween, a complete and utter meltdown began which resulted in my embarrassing walk through the store with two screaming children, one who wore a dress so soaked in tears it was pitiful.

I got in the car and drove home thinking about how sad it has become that Christmas is so played upon during the holiday season and other important events are overlooked. I hate the fact that Halloween and Thanksgiving become one little blip of brown and orange décor in the stores, but even more, not really a big deal to even celebrate. I can remember my grandparents and parents making really big deals of each holiday so that we had wonderful memories of things. We watched Halloween movies and made candy apples and handed out treats from our front door. We also got to CELEBRATE Thanksgiving and sit down, family hand-in-hand, and had a dinner. Together. At a table.


Is it that Christmas has become so much of a shoppers holiday, we don’t even think twice as to focusing on anything else? We need to get the hot ticket Christmas present on the shelf before the next store does instead of thinking about the fact that it’s 95 degrees outside? Retail has gotten so out of hand when it comes to holidays, most people don’t even shop IN the stores and choose to purchase things online – partially because of the chaos of shopping while Christmas explodes all over the store, your buggy, your car, and your budget.

When I found out I was pregnant, I asked my coworkers to give me the best parenting tip they were ever told. My boss chimed in and said he was told when adopting his daughters “to only give three gifts at Christmas to your children because that’s how many gifts baby Jesus recieved from the wise men”. We have actually held true to that and let me tell you, it has been awesome. It kept Coach and I from overspending, which is so easy to do when big business presses it in your face and makes you feel like less of a parent when you don’t buy 498,975,375,980 toys. Plus, if it was good enough for baby Jesus, then it’s most assuredly good for M&M. It also helps us to focus on spending time together and not running all over town buying and spending. This year we are going to volunteer and enjoy each other, not thousands of gifts.

So Holiday Season, we miss you. All of you. All the Columbus Day fall breaks, the Halloween spooky movies and treats. We miss Thanksgiving and eating til the tryptophan in the turkey knocks us out for the rest of the football games. And Christmas, we ALWAYS miss you because you’re awesome, but in due time. So come on back so we can celebrate!

You know I am a fan of genius products, and one of my favorites right now is Warby Parker. Getting eyeglasses has never been easier with this mail-to-your-house trial of 5 super trendy glasses that you pick out! These guys were so nice to let me try a few pair at home. It’s insanely easy – go online, pick out your style, frames, or colors you like, enter your shipping information, then WALLAH!


I selected 5 pair that were neatly wrapped and delivered with care and enjoyed all the styles and products. I’m not sure which pair I would even select because I loved all of them!Shop Warby Parker Online


Once you decide which one you like, all you have to do is mail back the pairs you don’t like and keep the pair of your choice! The price is very reasonable and you cannot beat the ease of shopping and trying them on in the comfort of your home. Personally, I don’t know if there is anything easier than Warby Parker and any mom that is in need of new glasses should definitely, DEFINATELY, definitely try this!
