S U M M E R is here! Oh yes, so many good finds out there….let’s start with this sweet soda fade Penny board! I mean how do you even top a round towel? The Beach People know what they are doing. Take that and listen to some tunes with the little SunnyLife radio in your backyard. Or draw some crazy big bugs on the sidewalk with colorblock chalk. Don’t forget to grab your little one a pair of moccs…Faas Design is killing it with the new barbados sandal mocc! The fun doesn’t end until you’ve kicked it in the sun…this tee from Tiny Whales is one of my son’s faves! Pair it with some  glowing gold leggings from Little Bear Bottoms and some Little Wanderers sunnies, like Emmy from Nielsen Littles style blog. Add a few tatts and you are good to go…Tattly has the best artists around designing fun temporary tattoos.

MUST HAVE TEES: I’m always on the hunt for the perfect tee for my little ones. My four year old is into dressing himself and lately he has been pretty particular. Kids can wear tees all year round. Of course we are ready for some warm sunny days but for now we are layering with flannels and thermals. Here are some of my favorite well designed, super soft tees for boys and girls!

hello ladies + hola ladies tees from Prefresh / rad tee from Geo Fox Apparel / strawberry fields forever tee from Tribe is Alive / we’re all friends tee from Wildfox Couture / be brave tee from Elsage Designs / joker tee from Atsuyo Et Akiko / arrows tee from Hello Apparel / trust your guts from Ascot + Hart / kicked it in the sun tee from Tiny Whales

MUST HAVE: These letterpressed IOUs! A collaboration between Christine of Ink*Lemonade and Typecase Industries. Every mom, not just new mommas can use a break every once in a while…I could really use the sleep one right about now. With all the new little ones I know arriving this year, I will be placing my order soon! I mean, how can you pass up mint edge printing. These IOUs would make the perfect gift…even for new dads!

Oh and I’m definitely adding Christine’s blog to my list of daily reads! You should too!

MUST HAVE: These wooden teaching letters from Present & Correct. Um…awesome! They were designed to teach children the motions for writing letters. They are available in upper and lowercase. My mind is spinning, of course I want these, but I wonder If I could make a set.

This reminds me…we are touring our first preschool for Jax this afternoon!

MUST HAVE: Little Duck Organics…tiny fruit snacks for kids! As a designer, I first discovered them for their bright, nicely designed packaging. But, 100% organic fruit and no added sugar! I was curious to know more, as any mom would be. I rarely give my boys sugar and I’m always looking for healthy foods for them to munch on. So, I dug a little deeper onto their website and just had to give them a try. LDO was so kind and sent us some samples of their yummy snacks. My kids love them! In fact, we are almost out. So good.

MUST HAVE: These hand-stamped swaddle blankets made by The Sweet Petite! Gotta love the sweet potato stamp. So beautiful…Made from soft, lightweight, 100% cotton gauze. They would make perfect gifts!

MUST HAVE: These knit hats designed by Annie Larson. I love all the patterns and the handmade poms up top! Visit All For Everyone for a classic stocking hat or sweater.
