Once in a Lifetime

Behind the Scenes Bird Boots Brand Rep Brands We Love Creativity Fall Fun Growing Up Smockingbird Hunter Kids Fashion Knithaus Layering Little Knit Dress Smockingbird _f _i _l _s

Hello (almost) Fall! Did you all catch the eclipse this week?  My cell phone photos didn't look like much, but someone was nice enough lend me eclipse glasses and THAT was a great view.  How remarkable that on a random Tuesday afternoon we all got to enjoy something that happens literally once in a lifetime.  It made me happy to see so many people stop whatever important things they were doing and make time to be a part of that magic.  In 6th grade our teachers took us out in a bus in the middle of the night to see Halley's Comet, another one-in-a-lifetime happening. It's...

Essential Fall Layering

Adorable Essentials Boots Brands We Love Crewcuts Fall Layering Livie & Luca Matilda Jane Sheplers Smockingbird Style Tarjay

Mash-ups

Boden Boots Brands We Love Girl Time Hunter Layering Livie & Luca Matilda Jane Mixing it Up Smockingbird Smockingbirdies Spring Tarjay Toms

It's that time of year that feels like a giant seasonal mash-up.  Snow followed by warm sunny days.  Frost on tulips.  Torrential cold rain and then the most perfect weather imaginable.   We've been bouncing all over the winter to spring spectrum. A number of packages were waiting for us after some time out of town, so we decided to do a little fashion mash-up of anything and everything the mailman brought.  It's fun to mix it up with different brands and styles and see what works.  If your rule of purchase is to buy only pieces you love, there's a good...

Smockingbirdies' First Snow Day! January 30, 2014 Being from the South (and only 2 and 5 years old) the Smockingbirdies had yet to experience the fun that is a Snow Day!
