Little Style Finder is thrilled to have Tiffany, mom of super stylish twins and stars of “Tales from the City,” Tristin & Tyler, share their favorite cold weather wears for this winter season.
As the mom of 9 year-old twins Tristin and Tyler who have a fashion blog and their own web series about saving the planet, we are always out and about in NYC.
If your kids are anything like mine, they still want to play outside when the weather is cold. Are you a parent that bundles the kids up with layers so they look like the Michelin man, or are you like me who goes for warmth that’s breathable? Well if you want to let your kids move a little, here are my favorite coats this year to let your kids get Winteractive:
Stella McCartney Kids - Stella knows style, and she didn’t stop when it came to kids outerwear. The green bubble jacket and yellow parka on T&T rock. The boys enjoy donating toys and moving around the city in these coats. What I love about the yellow parka is that it has a warm insert that you can take out if the kids get too hot, but the waterproof material keeps kids dry in the rain. When it comes to carrying backpacks, the bubble jacket is so light that it doesn’t give the boys extra weight to carry, even though it looks heavy.
Mini Rodini – I love the Mini Rodini Puff Jacket. It’s obviously an uber-trendy item, but would you believe it’s comfortable? It really is. The boys do a ton in this jacket. Also, I was so worried about the white part of the jacket getting dirty, but we’ve had it for a while now and it has withstood rain and snow…and it looks pretty awesome. Do you agree?
Appaman – New York City is HUGE! So we do a ton of walking around. We love Appaman down coats because they don’t feel clunky. There is also something about the fit that makes the coats seem tailor-made. Don’t the jackets seem to fit perfectly?
So what do you think? Do you go for warm and heavy or are you about warm and breathable like me? Which of these coats are your favorite?
This Go Gently Organic Romper (first spotted on Darling Clementine) was a favorite piece for summer and now can be transitioned into your little one’s wardrobe for Fall.
Check out our 3 stylish looks with a little edge (made possible with the help of my 5-year old daughter, Anna) based on this fabulous jumpsuit.
Check back soon for LSF’s new segment: Anna’s Closet.
How would you go from Summer to Fall with this Romper? Which look is your favorite?
The Darling that inspired Darling Clementine is owner Lindsay’s daughter Juliette, whose sweet stylish ways have led Lindsay all over searching for special, one of a kind items to fill up her little world. Lindsay has searched high and low to curate the inspired collection of children’s wares that is Darling Clementine. The shop consists of many brands found in her own Brooklyn backyard as well as hand picked items from around the world.
LSF is thrilled to introduce guest blogger, Lindsay Meyer-Harley, owner of Darling Clementine.
When babies enter the picture many things have to get chucked (think glass coffee table, heirloom vases on low shelves and the friday night partying), one thing that often enters is a sense of responsibility. Both the parental kind as well as in an overall sense.
Wanting to protect our planet seems to come hand in hand with wanting to protect our children. Sometimes though we get torn between what is right and what we like. Well, I’m happy to say it’s never been easier to shop for your baby/toddler while being gentle to Mother Earth. I strive to stock Darling Clementine with my favorite finds from around the world all the while having the least impact on the world around us. I never compromise quality, chicness or personal taste when it comes to eco-picks.
The site is full of eco finds, here are some of my absolute favorites!
1. Go Gently Baby – Jersey Scarf: Stay cozy warm this Winter with an organic cotton scarf in the most delicious colors. Soft rose, stone or the perfect shade of olive green.
2. Egg Baby – Alpaca Mouse Hat: This darling hat comes to us from a local Brooklyn company. Gotta love local.
3. Little Twig – Conditioning Detangler: This leave-in or wash out detangling conditioner is free of nasty chemicals and chock full of only the best ingredients. Safe for even the most sensitive of skin (and for Mamas too, this works great as a leave in!)
4. 3 Green Moms – Lunchskins Sandwich Bag: Use (and reuse) this baby for all your sandwich and snack needs, can be washed by hand or in the dishwasher a gazillion times over.
