hello summer! temps hit the mid-90's today in new york. the hot sweaty days of summer are here! i am part polar bear, but these pieces from wolfechild are having me giddy about warm humid nights at the playground and hauling out the a/c unit. dying over the ombre jumper. shop wolfechild here and at darling clementine.

i have to say blabla kids can do no wrong in my eyes. their sweaters and knitty dolls were some of the very first baby things i ever bought and i still love what they do. they have just launched a beautiful home collection for kids including travel playmats and, my personal favorite, handkerchief beanbags. all offered in simple, yet whimsical prints. shop the petit home collection

i have a confession to make, you guys. i am a huge skeptic. i've been hearing and reading about goatmilk kidware for quite some time as it has amassed an incredibly loyal and enthusiastic following in the past couple years. but every time i'd check out their stuff online, i'd think to myself, "what's the big deal? it's just underwear." as recently as last week, i asked amanda the same thing, and she said she couldn't quite explain it, that i had to see for myself.
so our friends at goatmilk sent over a couple samples, and let me tell you, there is a reason everybody loves goatmilk. yes, they specialize in basics. but don't let that fool you, these tanks, tees and onesies are anything but simple. they're made of organic, fair trade cotton that's not only soft to the touch, but also tailored impeccably so the fit on your child is incredibly flattering and comfortable. no strange puckering or riding up in the wrong places. these are the kinds of pieces that can be passed to the next kid, even after a lot of wear, and the look is so classic. ok, i'm not going to make my kids share skivvies, but tanks and shorts this nice, sure - why not? i am officially a goatmilk convert!

when i was pregnant with my first son, the very first item of clothing i ever bought for him was from tane organics. they make adorable, basic pieces in the softest organic cotton and wool. i just love their new spring/summer line - i'm definitely going to need a few of these pieces for boy no. 2 (just found out today!) shop tane organics

i just sorted through piles of photos and this is the best picture i could find of me and my mom. this was taken at mt. mckinley in alaska. i am five. needless to say, i need to find some better pictures of the two of us, especially since my mom has been such a big part of my life.
you never really understand your mother until you become one, and even then, you don't completely. being a parent is the best and worst job that you love more than anything else. i can only hope i am as good at it as she is...happy mother's day mamas. i hope everyone had a special day. xoxo
