I am lucky. Like WAY lucky. I always appreciate (and love) the opportunity to share some pretty cool brands that I believe in, but when I get to be apart of the release of products for one of my favorite shops, I just get giddy with excitement.
Excitement over clothes? Yes. Duh. I am a mother of toddlers and a baby that dress better than me most of the time. So yes- excited over the clothes we get to wear.
What I really get excited about (and truthfully humbled by) is the fact that these brands trust me to share and do justice to their hard work.
For some of these small shops, its their livelihood - and I get to be apart of that.
Thats huge. This is part of the reason why I absolutely believe in shopping small whenever I can.
Golden Hill Design is no stranger to this blog. I had the privilege of working with these sweet ladies early in my pregnancy with Baker and have continued to support them (as they support me) in their new endeavor of growing a brand that has proven to be quiet amazing.
This summer I had a hard time figuring out how to dress Baker. Since the twins were born in the dead of winter I was used to covering my babies from head to toe, but Baker didn't need so many layers in the Texas summer heat. The cool comfort of GHD's skinny minny tank top onesies saved the day. Since the cooler temperatures of fall have hit in Texas, I've been layering these tank top onesies under sweaters and cardigans and they are not too bulky and fit just right.. until its 80 degrees in the afternoon and the sleeveless option of these onesies are perfect. The fabrics these ladies choose are basically perfect.. and please say hello to solid colors! No animals or cutesy sayings. Because sometimes its not about a froggy face on a white onesie.
When the ladies behind GHD asked me to be apart of their fall release I said sure! but I actually didn't know HOW AWESOME their new products would be! A few highlights I'd light to mention:
The fabrics - light, breathable, and oh-so-soft.
The colors - some are classic GHD.. like the urban brown I cannot get enough of! BUT - their newest addition of rose and navy are superbly on point.
The sleeves - long sleeves and side rouching. Yes and yes.
THIS Jolie Grace. She really loves the camera. Such a sweet little girl I am raising.
Miss Baker! Darling girl doesn't quiet know what to do or think about those crazy sisters of hers running amok for the camera. Her button nose and those baby blues.. your daddy doesn't stand a chance, girlfriend. She found her tongue this last week and spit bubbles and drooling have commenced. Thank goodness for our reversible trendy little bandana bib. I didn't think teeny baby things could get cuter.
I continue to be proven wrong!
Those baby thighs, though.
Mama got in on the fun, too! I feel like these baseball style tees run true to size - they are very stretchy and hold their shape well (awesome for nursing and forgiving for every body type) but for me and the postpartum 'pooch' that hasn't gone away just yet.. I would size up for a more relaxed fit.
Parker's face says it all. That girl. Giving me a run for my money these days. BUT- three babies looking at the camera? I'll take it:)
