It's 8 am here in Southern Cali, and I am so excited to jump start your morning the best way possible; with ICE CREAM!
Oh, the sound of an ice cream truck making its way down your street, brings back some of the best memories of my childhood. No matter how crazy life gets, with work, school, doctors appointments, holidays, and birthday parties, you can always count on an ice cream cone, or a quick trip to the yogurt shop to bring a sweet moment to you and your child's day.
Adorable versions of this classic dessert are popping up in all kinds of fun ways for kids to enjoy in their daily lives. A glittery hot pink ice cream cone headband from Giddy Up and Grow, is the perfect cherry on top of any outfit. For the boys, and hipster girls, there is a sorbet licking gorilla named Pete on this tee from Quinn + Fox. Pete is definitely the coolest gorilla around, sporting a fedora and sunnies, while enjoying his ice cream. For the mint & chip lover, how about a pair of mint moccasins for those edible toesies?! Faas Design makes some of the best moccasins around, in all kinds of beautiful colors, and prints. Mint is a key color this spring, so your little is sure to get plenty of use out of these moccs. My absolute fave, must have for Stella, is this mint ice cream cone dress from Kira. It's casual, cool, and the perfect play dress! Style a "skater girl" look with a pair of high tops, and a top knot. You can even bring the ice cream fun into your home with this gorgeous watercolor painting from Jo Jo La Rue, (Joanna), the artist, is based out of Boston, MA. This would be so sweet hung in your child's nursery or playroom. She specializes in food art, so for the cupcake, doughnut, and macaroon lovers she has you covered.
