One of my favorite things about being a mom is finding clothes for my kiddos that we both adore. I love to look to small businesses and shops to find unique items that express my kids personalities. When I find something I love, I just have to share it! Here is a little round up of items I am loving for my toddlers spring fashion.
We received a variety of samples for inclusion. All opinions are our own.
Hello Apparel has been a long time favorite for us at our house. They are locally owned and operated right here in our Arizona backyard and have the best designs. I love their simple t-shirts and sweatshirts. I am constantly asked where I got my “I’m So Tired” sweatshirt. My kids love their Hello T-Shirts, they each have several designs and they constantly request to wear them. I think it has something to do with how soft and comfy they are. As a mom I love how easy they wash up and keep looking awesome wear, after wear, after wear. You can find their items for babies all the way up to adult here.
I recently stumbled upon Kid & Kind on Instagram and was immediately smitten with their quirky graphics and awesome text! They have the best eye for stylish presentation and they do not have an item I do not absolutely love! My son loves his “AAAHHH!” Long sleeved shirt. He loves to jump out around the corner and yell AAAAHHHH!, then he laughs and reminds me that his shirt says AAAHHH!! so he had to. Kid & Kind has items for kids and babies and both collections are just perfection. Check them out here.

Leggings, t-shirts, and hair accessories, some of the main staples for every little girls wardrobe. Positively Oakes started out as a Etsy shop run from the bedroom of a small apartment and is now a full time business. The owner, Jessica Oakes, wanted to make clothes that are both cute and stylish for kids and their mamas. I think she has succeeded, I LOVE our leggings and shirts from Positively Oakes and so does my little lady. She begs to wear her flower leggings over and over again. She is such a little snuggle bug, so I just knew she had to have this cuddle shirt! Check out these items and more here.
Wildly Co. sets out to make the best in basics for your kids. They design and produce ethically made staples for your child’s wardrobe. I found Wildly Co. in my quest to find the perfect skinny jeans for my tall, long legged, skinny boy! I have tried most brands out there and they all end up looking like wide/straight leg jeans on him. Wildly Co.’s real skinny jeans are our current favorite, hands down. They are the best dark wash and perfectly made. They feature an adjustable waist and are actual jeans, not jeggings. I can’t get over how much I love them on my little man. He is in love with his Perfect T from them as well, says it is his softest favorite! Check out their great items for boys and for girls here.
WeeRascals was born out of the want for something more. Something more than princesses and superheroes. Kylie and Liz, like many moms including myself, wanted fun clothes with real faces. People our kids could look up to and learn from. Their shirts feature faces and stories of people your kids can learn about and learn from. Real heroes are the best heroes. I had so much fun picking shirts for my kids. I chose Amelia Earhart for my daughter and Abraham Lincoln for my son. It is so fun to talk to them about these historical figures when they wear their cute shirts. We get tons of compliments on these when we are out and about. See their full collection here.

Frankie & Sue started out by creating a line of clothing that appeals to both the tom boys and the girly-girls and everyone in-between. Everything is 100% made in Los Angeles. Their new line is inspired by vintage California, it is full of beachy and flowy boho silhouettes. Every little girl is sure to find something she loves from this collection. From dresses to jumpers, to pants, to tops, there is little bit of everything for everyone. See the collection here.

FabKids is always a favorite at our house. I love shopping on they website because it is easy, affordable, and fun.

With their V.I.P membership you enjoy your first outfit for $15 then each month they send you new picks for you to choose from and each outfit is only $29.95. Talk about a good deal for a whole outfit. Plus, it takes all the guess work out of putting together cute outfits! To make things even better, now they have shoes!
