You'll LOVE THESE Small Shops!

It's been awhile since I've posted but life has been a bit crazy lately!  Kyle has been working crazy hours with his new job and I've been adjusting to life at home with Marlowe by myself.  That sounds ridiculous, but I've been blessed with having Kyle work from home for the past 3 years, so this whole stay-at-home mom thing is fairly new for me.  Anyways, when I'm at home and she's nursing, I tend to get on my phone and find all these small shops for Marlowe!  Aka things I want to buy for her/me/the house etc.  I'm a big believer in supporting small companies, usually started by women in their garage. I would much rather give my money to them even if it costs a little bit more sometimes.  The quality is usually better and the items are one-of-a-kind. Today I thought I'd share a few that I'm loving at the moment!

For Baby

this lime green peplum tee!

June and January
I'm obsessed with this online shop!  They make the cutest, simplest, baby and kids clothes that come in basic prints and solid BRIGHT colors.  The have the most adorable bloomers, crop tops, and knee high socks.  I've purchased a few peplum tops for Marlowe and some stripe bloomers that I just love. For boys, they have adorable rompers and pocket tees that I could see a little one wearing every single day.   I would definitely say to size up though, because I think they run a little small.

I got the pewter colored mat pictured here!

I recently discovered this shop and put my order in right away.  They make these gorgeous leather mats that come in different sizes-a changing pad size, highchair mat size, medium, and a large family size mat.  What's great about them is that they are completely wipeable and waterproof and fold up nicely.  The quality is amazing and you can find a color to match your decor. I got the "pewter" high chair mat that is literally the perfect size for under her highchair so she can throw as much food off of it as she wants and not stain my rug.  I really want the family size floral one for outings!

look how tiny she was here in that Little Spoons romper!

The Little Spoons
The Little Spoons is another baby/kids clothing shop that makes basic, simple clothes.  I've ordered from them again and again because I'm telling you their fabric is UNBELIEVABLY soft.  I wish they made adult clothes so I could just rub that fabric all over me haha.  I love their solid rompers for nighties, or crawling, and their flutter bloomers are so adorbs. Again, size up with their clothes!

this bonnet is from Rylee and Cru!

Rylee and Cru
This shop is on the pricier side but totally worth it for an adorable outfit for your baby or toddler.  Their summer line is on sale right now, and I can't wait for them to release their fall line.  The quality of these clothes is amazing, and their packaging is beautiful.  They make clothes with rich colors and I love the patterns! They also have a chic selection of art prints that would look stunning in a playroom or nursery.  The bonnet in the picture is from Rylee and Cru.

This is a fairly new shop that sells removable adhesive wallpaper!  Basically, it's like a peel and stick type of wallpaper that is super popular right now because it's great for rentals and is really easy to put up!  My mom just put some up in her laundry room, and I've covered a few pieces of furniture with it (from Spoonflower).  BUT I haven't ordered from this shop yet, mostly because I can't decide which wallpaper I want.  They are ALL so beautiful, and I'm the most indecisive person ever when it comes to these things. I'm also really digging the monogram floral letters and the backsplash wallpaper. If I could I would wallpaper every room in the house with these prints!

Think, the modern chalkboard with this cute little shop.  They specialize in magnetic letter boards where you can change out the writing daily if you want.  These would make a great gift!  I love the funny sayings and quotes people put on them and I've even seen the smaller sized used for monthly milestone pictures.

SugarBoo & Co
These guys make the most beautiful wood signs for your home!  In particular though, I'm in love with their book collection and poetry collection series.  My mom just bought the one above for her house and it is such a statement piece.  Plus the teacher in me loves the Roald Dahl quote.

For the Mamas

sorry for the grainy iPhone pic!

Kortni Jeane
It's summer, which means you need a cute swimsuit! Kortni Jeane makes the most adorable suits that are modest, but still flirty.  They are all high-waisted bottoms with a variety of tops, all in fun prints.  Better yet, you can get matching suits for mom and baby girl OR dad and little boy! How perfect is that?  Marlowe and I LOVE our matching swimmers!

The Bee and the Fox Co.
This shop has the cutest tshirts for moms, and kids!  I particularly love the "Mama Bird" tee, and the "Baby Bird" tee for Marlowe.  The simple design and classic black font on all the clothing items make this shop stand out.
