Trend Alert: Kimonos

Kimonos are here to stay for another season! These were my favorite go to look for last summer, and I still love this look. Most of the kimonos that I saw last season were floral patterns, and this season I am seeing a lot more variations. Kimonos are comfortable and can be worn as a casual look or dressed up. These are so versatile that I have worn them to the beach and to more formal events. Here are a few of our favorite styles of Kimonos:

Celebrities are wearing them too!

I don’t know if there is anything cuter than a little girl wearing a kimono! It is such a youthful and free style, but adds a touch of class and sophistication for a mini fashionista.

If the Shoe Fits – Joyfolie

When putting a look together, we can’t forget one of the most important steps – the shoes (pun intended)! The perfect shoes can really pull a look together and can even give your look a completely different feel. Shoes can dress up or dress down your look and add just the right amount of chic. There is no exception when putting together looks for your children. When dressing my daughter, the shoes are often the most important part because not only do I have to worry about how they look, but how they feel. In my lifetime, I can’t even count the number of times I have worn completely uncomfortable heels because they looked great with my dress, but then ended up barefoot with my shoes in hand for the rest of the day. In our house, comfort is the most important thing when it comes to choosing shoes. My daughter would rather wear shoes that completely don’t match than to wear shoes that look great but hurt her feet. The solution? Joyfolie! Joyfolie has ADORABLE shoes for children that are on trend and completely comfortable!

We love to choose Joyfolie shoes when we are styling our photo shoots. They are comfortable, fun, and really complete the looks for our latest collections. Their gladiator sandals are a personal favorite!

Taylor Joelle Artisan – Sneak Peek

We are so honored and excited to bring you Taylor Joelle Artisan (coming in May). We have collaborated with some beautiful Ghana entrepreneurs who have hand dyed and hand stamped the fabric and then sewn the items. Many are hard working African moms who have invested in a sewing machine. The process is beautiful and amazing and we are so happy that our owner Jenny’s parents (who are on an LDS mission in Ghana) could help bring these creations to Taylor Joelle Designs.

Here is a sneak peek at our photo shoot for Taylor Joelle Artisan that we had last week with Heather Telford Photography:

Beloved Kids!

Are you hungry for children’s fashion that is unique and oh so sweet? Check out Beloved Kids! We are so excited to collaborate with Beloved Shirts on their new line for kids! Beloved is known for daring to be different. If you have ever wanted to wear your food, be an astronaut, or really make a fashion statement, Beloved is for you! Many celebrities (including Katy Perry) have been seen wearing their signature Belovsies (think adult size onesies). Beloved is now venturing into the world of children’s fashion and we are thrilled to be a part of it. 

And we really mean it when we say that they dare to be different…. who knew a poop emoji could make such a fun fashion statement?

Kids Street Style – Joggers

We love Bauer’s casual look here featuring our new joggers!
Joggers are such a fun gender neutral style that are laid back – yet fashionable. 
Here are a few of our favorite ways to wear joggers. Who ever imagined sweat pants with heels? But, it works! Casual, yet glamourous! 
Celebrities are wearing joggers too!
And don’t forget the kids! We have seen to many adorable jogger styles for kids. How adorable are these limited edition bananas joggers by Freshly Picked?
Where to buy:
The best thing about joggers? The price! They are affordable and can be purchased at some of your favorite stores in the mall.
If you are looking joggers for your little one, Taylor Joelle has great joggers that are great for boys or for girls!
