Be still my heart

Today is January 13th which means we are one month away from Valentines Day. I was a hopeless romantic from the start, and always adored this love-filled holiday. I still remember when my kindergarten valentine brought me homemade chocolate chip cookies shaped as hearts for Valentines Day. (His mom was obviously on top of things!) I always look forward to a bouquet of fresh flowers, and feeling a little extra loved. I think it's unrealistic of those "anti-valentine" people who say Valentines Day should be every day. I believe all people with significant others should up the "anty" a little on Valentines Day, and make that special person in your life feel EXTRA special.

Any holiday surrounded on love should be celebrated in a big way. Since Stella is only one years old and has no Prince Charming yet, besides her daddy, we will be celebrating this year by making all our friends and family feel a little extra love. I think it's important to show your kiddos from the start how to show people appreciation. What better way to tell someone they are great, than a valentine?

So get get your little sweethearts ready to say "be mine" with these festive frocks and accessories.

Fashion Creds:
1. Rosette leggings (Little Hip Squeaks) 2. XOXO tee (Peek Kids) 3. "The way we were" headband (Birdiebabyboutique) 4. Heart shaped Sunnies (Carters) 5. Pink polka dot high tops (Toms) 6. Friendship Bracelets (Giddy Up and Grow) 7. Too cute Jammies (Baby Gap) 

I am obsessed with these rose print leggings from Little Hip Squeaks. Little Hip Squeaks is a modern small business clothing line based in Brooklyn, New York. All the fabrics for their items are printed using a non toxic water based silk screening process, so there should be no fading when cared for properly.  These pink rosette leggings are currently on their winter sale and available in size 4t. Check out their shop for more hipster print fun. 

This XOXO tee from Peek Kids is for your tiniest of valentines and is available in sizes 0 to 3 months to 12 to 18 months on  Pair this tee with a fabulous tutu or pink skinny jean, and your little valentine will be sure to get plenty of Xs and Os. 

Have your little girl seeing hearts with these adorable heart shaped glasses from Carters. I love finding little gems there! If you haven't signed up for their email blasts, do it! They are great at emailing coupon codes and discounts. 

I've already talked about my admiration for birdie baby boutique, so expect to see their items listed on my blog a lot! She has amazing valentines day bows, and this one called "the way we were" is a must have with the cupids arrow detail. I know my little Miss Valentine will be rocking this bow come February. 

These high top pink toms are the perfect shoe for your little love. Polka dots happen to be my favorite print this spring & high tops are the new trendy sneakers.  These are sized for baby, walker, and toddler and can be found on Remember that for every pair of Toms you purchase, Toms will donate a pair of new shoes to a child in need. So this shoe is not only cute, but charitable as well. 

This Valentines Day, shop Giddy Up and Grow on Etsy for this super cute friendship bracelet. Have your little girl give her besties this fashionable and sweet friendship bracelet. It is for ages 3 and up, priced at $12 each.

Last but not least, have your love bug head to bed with these Valentines jammies. I'm sure the print says it all....  "Too cute".

Fashion Creds;
1. Be Loved screen tee (Old Navy) 2. Conversation Heart headband (Giddy Up & Grow) 3. Peplum heart sweater (Baby Gap) 4. Boyfriend jeans (Zara kids) 5. Heart print head wrap (A Little Lady Shop) 6. Jelly Mary Janes (Mini Melissa) 7. Dress (Dreamcatcher Baby) 

So it was just too hard to create one shopping guide list for girls! Anybody with a daughter can 
probably relate, it's just so hard to not buy everything!! Lets start with this screen tee from Old Navy. I'm sorry but I don't know what happened to Old Navy over the past decade but someone there is doing something RIGHT because its come a long way from its performance fleece days. They have some awesome duds for your littles (and for mom too). I absolutely love their tees for tots and this one "BE LOVED, BE HAPPY, BE MINE" is so cool. I'm always a sucker for gold! 

Giddy Up and Grow scored again with this conversation heart headband. I love the rose print on the elastic, paired with the little pink rose, this headband is so pretty and playful! 

Since Valentines Day does fall in winter, this sweater is perfect for your little to wear on those cooler February days. Give this sweater an edgy look with some boyfriend jeans, a pair of moccs, and a headwrap. The boyfriend jeans I listed from Zara kids have a modern slouchy look for your mini me, and add instant cool. (Not like your kid needs it because I'm sure they are already the coolest). 

Speaking of head wraps, how much do I adore this one from A Little Lady Shop? This is another adorable shop you can find on Etsy. Not only is her shop full of adorable bows and head wraps, but it has one of the quickest turn-arounds, shipping within 1 to 3 business days. Follow their shop on Instagram and Facebook to hear about new products and shopping coupon codes. 

I'm sure you have heard of Melissa jelly shoes,  and now she has expanded her line for kids called Mini Melissa. Her jelly sandals come in all kinds of fun color combinations, and this red Mary Jane with pink bow detail is perfect for your little valentine to pair with her holiday outfits! 

Last but definitely not least, have a Valentines photo shoot or party coming up? This dress by Dreamcatcher Baby is as precious as they come. These dresses are all handmade and come 0 to 3 months to 3t. The fabric is printed with mini roses and hearts, and adorned with the most adorable bow. Your little darling is sure to have fun twirling in this pretty.
