Boston kids fashion: Kodomo Boston Launches August 4

"Kodomo — the Japanese word for "child" — is a beautiful new Boston shop offering playful and stylish clothing, shoes, and accessories for babies, kids, and tweens. Kodomo partners with independent designers from around the globe who work thoughtfully and consciously to make the fun styles loved by all Kodomo littles."

Kodomo is finally (almost) here to take the kids fashion scene in Boston by storm! In exactly a week from today, you'll be able to find the most unique and chic kids clothes and accessories right here in Boston's South End. We were lucky to get a sneak peek of some of the coolest finds last evening. We are crushing on everything, from clothes to toys, but the Sketch.Inc for Lucie Kass hand painted figurines (I mean...) and unicorn  accessories are our favorites! I can't even wait to see their entire collection once it officially launches next week! Meanwhile, hope you enjoy the sneak peek!


Kids fashion blog: Lights, Camera, Studio Time!

This was a very special "test" shoot with Neve and Ona at my studio. It was a test shoot because they were helping me test lighting for an important shoot the following week. It was a special one because it was their last shoot at this particular studio! Yes, our studio is moving! Our family is moving 20 minutes outside of Boston in the end of August, and so is our studio (we are currently hunting for the perfect studio space)! So it's business as usual, just from the next town over : ) 

From genuine smiles to fake ones to a mad look, they pretty much covered an entire spectrum of emotions. They can stand still (and look happy!) for 1 or 2 pictures max. Changing backdrops, tweaking the light  set up - forget about it! And I don't blame them - running around in the studio, and admiring their own artwork which was displayed in the studio was way more exciting than standing at one boring spot! 

I am sharing a few of my favorites! We did 2-3 outfit changes so rest of the looks will be coming up soon in subsequent blog posts. See you guys soon!

Yellow dress: Gap
Cotton top: Soma (India)
Jeans: Ralph Lauren


Vintage Fun

My girls and I had a fun, impromptu photo shoot the other morning as they modeled some adorable vintage clothing. These pieces are ones my grandmother had saved from when I was about 2-3 years old and now they barely fit my growing girls! They were getting dressed for school, goofing around like usual, and I just had to capture them in these outfits one last time.


Mix and Match: Pink and Checkered

Pairing this simple, checkered, summer dress with a pink jacket makes for a unique look. The layering is perfect for the inconsistent New England summer weather and makes for a colorful outfit. Plus, N was a very happy little girl getting to wear her favorite color - pink!

The featured dress and jacket are both from Zara


Mix and match mania: fancy finds

Simple, sophisticated, and chic this outfit will make your little one look very stylish without being overdone. I love this look for festivities, family celebrations or birthdays. I can see my girls wearing this for Diwali or even for an Indian wedding. It's like a modern and comfortable twist to a traditional Indian outfit for little girls.  

The skirt can be paired with a more casual top to dress the outfit down for fun, every day wear. Similarly, the top can be worn with a casual skirt for an informal look.

This is what mixing and matching is all about, no? So much fun!

Silk Top: LEOCA Paris
Gold Skirt: Wolf and Rita


Little P Rugs

These Little P Rugs quickly became a favorite of mine after meeting this wonderful company at Playtime in New York this past February. These colorful rugs can easily become the focal point of any nursery decor. They also make for a unique play area for your little ones as they come in a range of sizes and colors. A must have for any nursery, play area, or work space!


Prints for Summer

This sunny weather is making me even more excited for summer! This patterned top is perfect to mix and match with any style of bottoms - shorts, skirts or pants. The bright color adds flare and can be paired with fun accessories such as a hat to round off the perfect summer look.


Playful Summer Dress

I am thrilled to have found this dress with such a playful kitty graphic. I had previously seen the graphic on a top but it sold out before I could buy it; I knew I had to snag this one right away! The design wraps around the neckline onto the back to give the dress a unique look. This no fuss outfit makes me picture my girls running around on the beach this summer. Nothing but sunshine, bare feet, beach balls, and fun!

Whimsy Wednesday: Angel Wings

My girls adore these angelic back packs designed to fit their spirited personalities. Trendy and practical, these bags can add flare to any outfit. They're useful for school or a fun way to pack up items for a sunny summer day! They come in a variety of colors (and with interchangeable wings in three colors) so your little ones can choose their own.
