Funky Legs offers mostly unisex collections of organic and affordable quirky leg wear for babies and kids: socks, tights, leggings; pants, shorts, tees, reversible masks, tutus and other cool accessories.  What’s more- they are super soft and uber-cozy (according to my daughter).

We are huge fans of the graphic patterns such as stripes, dots, raindrops, stars, soaring birds and hearts set against neutral background creating a stylish fusion of casual simplicity and minimalistic funk.

little style of the day: a size too small

Picture 8

A Size 2 Small was developed by two friends who shared the same idea of how they wanted kids to dress. That idea was adult styled clothing, sized to fit little ones.

This small online boutique is carefully curated by the pair. Our favorite part- they hand-pick each item ranging from shoes, clothing, accessories, decor and more – but only items they truly feel they  would purchased for themselves.

And so it goes. A Size 2 Small will continue to pick and hunt for items both old and new to give your kids an amazing selection of items to wear and use. Vowing to find items that you’d wear or use – if only they weren’t a size (or more) too small.

Don’t forget to check out the FOUND items- the result of their compulsive thrifting and garage sale-ing habit.  A Size 2 Small loves the thrill of the hunt and takes pride in finding one-of-a-kind items for your little ones.

IT list: “for the girls” gift guide with darling clementine

LSF is thrilled to bring you some of our favorite items from one of our most treasured online boutiques, Darling Clementine- carrying a unique array of brands and products from clothes to accessories to toys to home decor. We teamed up to pick out the best stuff for darling little girls. All of the items below and more can be seen in our “For the Girls: Gift Guide”

THE PERFECT JUMPSUIT

THE PERFECT TEE

THE PERFECT PILLOW

THE PERFECT GAME

THE PERFECT BAG

THE PERFECT BOOK

THE PERFECT PLATE

IT list: swaddling blankets

LSF has been on the hunt to find the perfect stylish (and functional) MUST-HAVE “accessory” for your new baby boy or girl- the swaddle blanket/wrap.

The Convertible Woombie: Arms open to convert from the Original Woombie swaddle sleep sack to an arms-free sleep sack when the time arises to transition the baby. Do what’s most comfortable for your baby with either option

Swaddle Designs Marquisette Swaddling Blankets: Lightweight, Breathable, Open Weave, Baby Soft Cotton Swaddling Blanket. Cotton Marquisette (Mar-kwuh-set) is similar to gauze, but much softer due to finer threads and higher thread count. Wonderful option for warmer climates

Aden + Anais Bamboo Muslin Collection: For countless generations, mothers have swaddled and cared for their children with natural muslin. aden + anais® has gone one step further to bring you soft, silky rayon from bamboo fiber muslin. Luxuriously soft, it is the ideal fabric to use on delicate baby skin. All aden + anais products are available in fashion forward prints that say as much about your style as they do about the traditions that bind mothers together around the world.

Halo Sleep Sack Swaddle: Pure organic cotton keeps your baby comfy and safe while sleeping. The Halo SleepSack® replaces loose blankets in the crib and is worn over regular sleepwear. Geometric prints and animal appliqués add charming style.

Nested Bean Zen Swaddle: This isn’t your ordinary swaddling blanket; it’s designed to be weighted in certain areas to mimic the feeling of being cradled.  The Zen SwaddleTM integrates custom accessories into its swaddle design to employ the same principles:

  • The Peaceful TouchTM creates the gentle pressure that a reassuring hand on the chest might
  • The Loving EmbraceTM pair is positioned on either side of the baby’s body to mimic being encircled in a caregiver’s arms.
  • Finally the swaddle design helps little ones stay asleep during the startle, or Moro, reflex.

COMING SOON!

Miracle Blanket: The Miracle Blanket makes it easy to get the perfect swaddle every time, even in the dark! The fabric is a super soft cotton knit selected for several good reasons: It’s breathable so that it can be used in warm climates while still being luxurious enough to keep your baby warm in cooler places; It has just enough stretch to absorb your baby’s movements without coming undone but it’s not so stretchy that it won’t stay tight.

Pee Wee Baby SwaddleBuddy Suit: The SwaddleBuddy™ Suit is guaranteed to keep your houdini baby swaddled! The arm wraps keep the arms comfortably at the sides while the exterior wrap provides the comfort of being swaddled. Unlike other swaddles that wrap the arms, the SwaddleBuddy™ Suit uses hook and loop to prevent the arms from becoming unwrapped by an especially wiggly swaddle houdini.  The Suit option keeps the upper portion of the swaddle in place and is perfect for use in swings and bouncy seats. The hook and loop opening allows for super easy access for diaper changes without having to unswaddle.

Bitsy Bear Swaddle Wraps: Swaddling your newborn is a loving way to calm those stirring arms and legs and soothe your baby to sleep. For the real movers and shakers, a security blanket just won’t do! The Swaddling Wrap is the best way to help your tired one feel secure all through the night, promoting longer and more peaceful sleep periods.

In 2004, as Tribeca was bursting at its seams with new families,  Babylicious was born–clothing, toys and books for the under-7 set. Six years later, Babylicious has grown into its current incarnation, Torly Kid–tot to tween.

Torly Kid 51 Hudson St. New York, NY 212.406.7440 www.torlykid.com
As a mother of two daughters who are growing up quickly, Carol has moms in mind with Torly Kid. Looking to continue serving local babies, and to fill the relative void of tween clothing options, Torly Kid keeps the aesthetic decidedly hip but always practical. The store is bright, fun and brimming with everything, including Appaman’s infamous bulldog tees and Susan Lazar’s sumptuous cotton.

This boutique has great styles for babies, kids, and tweens that are a little bit mod, a little bit sweet, and, of course, a little bit rock and roll, carrying newborn through size 10 for boys and 14 for girls.
