Fashion Friday: Little Boys Graphic Tees

It’s fashion friday!

It’s funny, both Meg and I are transitioning right.  I’m right in the middle of figuring our my graduate school acceptance and starting summer classes.  Meg just got back from her 3-4 month stay in China for her PHD work, which is why our posts have been a little light(not our usual) as of late.  I thought it would be fun to share with you my favorite thing right now for Jax . . .

GRAPHIC TEES

We’ve pretty much transitioned to using only t-shirts and pants/shorts for Jax.  I find using two pieces easier with a squirmy one year old who won’t lay on his back for anything anymore . . . not even changing a diaper.  It’s a game of finding something that will occupy him while I change his diaper (or his clothes) or I’m chasing after him with a diaper, which he loves being chased.

I’ve found a lot of cute tees at target, old navy, carter’s, and of course WE MAKE THEM!  I shared with you some of our recent creations last week.  If you have a shirt that you want upcycled to a cute baby, toddler, or children’s tee, contact us at our shop or via email  for details.  Here are a few cute ones I found that I’m eying for Jax:

i actually bought this one in Target for really cheap, like $5.

This is supper cute. Love the bright neon color, which is totally popular this summer. Carter’s Tee – $10.50

ummm . . . don’t mom’s rock! of course they do. :) Carter’s Tee – $6

back of the above shirt.

So you get the idea . . . :)  We sometimes go through a couple shirts a day.  What can I say – Jax plays like a little boy, plus he’s learning to eat like a big kid.  So we are both messy often!

Have a great weekend!

ENJOY! ash

Fashion Friday OR Friday Wants: Boys of Summer

Ok – so I confess, I didn’t have time to do the Fashion Friday shoot this week.  Plus, my photographer is gone for the week (Europe – lucky gal).  So I did something a little like Wednesday Wants: I collected a spattering of cool summer inspired boys items both clothing and toys.  I’ll share with you my favorite boy clothing items, since it is Fashion Friday.

Riding a bike always reminds me of summer.  Something about the feeling of the wind in your face, and feeling like a free spirit.  Both of these items are perfect for summer.

riding a bike always reminds me of summer.

make sure to check out her other cute shirts. it was a toss between this one and amo.

This shirt reminds me of wearing an aquarium, which I have this deep excitement to take Jax to one.  He’s always enthralled with fish tanks whenever we see them.

This would be perfect for the beach, not to mention the fact that I love stripes.

And of course you’ll need this for the beach when you go there:

I’m not sure why, but I’m really digging sharks as a fashion trend for little boys this summer.  Maybe that’s always the case.

Make sure to check out all of the other cute etsy summer items I choose on our list.  There are lot of cute items out there that are made with love, and by hand.

Hopefully I’ll be back in full Fashion Friday swing next week!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Featured Esty Shop: Jeannie n Richard

Do you love jewelery?  We do!

Today’s featured Etsy shop is Jeannie n Richard a husband and wife “tandem” who design “distinct luxe jewelry.”  They have been designing jewelry since 2011.  Richard does chainmaille weaving while Richard & Jeannie both do bead stitching.  They work daily on their designs bringing together an “ecletic fusion of beads, gemstones, pearls, cyrstals and chainmaille that rise to your occasion, daily styling and your sentimental heirloom that endures the changing trends.”

these are so sweet, they remind of me icecream with a nostaligic modern twist.

You can have a chance to win a ring and a pair of earrings by entering our mother’s day giveaway.

there is something hip, modern, yet classic about this.

Not only does this husband + wife team make amazing jewelery, but they also want to fulfill one of their life long dreams by dedicating a percentage of the profits from their designs into establishing a “self substaining pet sanctuary for the abandoned, strays, sick and abused where there is no limitation of stay but with the option to be rehomed into a responsible and loving family.”

We LOVE that they want to give back, and what a great concept for doing so.

i love the modern chevron like feel this has. the blue is just amazing and would be great for summer outfits!

Make sure to check out their shop ecspcially because their shop is having a Post-FAB 25% Sale till May 31, code POSTFAB25 at checkout.  Also, if you love the earrings and ring you saw me wearing for Fashion Friday enter our giveaway for a chance to win them!

Featured Etsy Shop: Casanees

Plaid suspenders by Casanees

Remember these adorable suspenders on Jax last Friday from Casanees?  We’re in love with them!  I actually think we’re debating having Jax wear them for my wedding in August (we’re doing a camping wedding with florals for girls and plaids for the boys! Well we’ll see it’s actually planned as an “eclectic” wedding so I picture things getting thrown in last minute).  Her stuff is perfect for weddings because she can custom make any of her patterns (hats, suspenders, dresses, and ties) for your ring bearers and flower girls.

She has the cutest ties (and bowties as well) that you can coordinate for your events or family photos!

Cassandra is so talented and hilarious to boot!  When we asked her what type of personal information we could include about her in this post she said,  “basically, I’m Super Mom to my two little kidlets, a boy and a girl. Lately I play the part of Captain Hook, because the good guys are taken and they want a villain… ”  LOL.  I just fell in love with this response!  I can just imagine Cassandra whipping up Peter Pan and Tinkerbell costumes for her kids as well as beautiful (matching) clothes sets!  Like these from her store:

Perfect for family/kiddo photos!

Casandra tells us, “I LOVE sewing for my kids and creating what their imagination can dream up. Nothings better than having a unique item of clothing that no one else on the playground has!”  We’d have to agree and I think this cap is the next unique item we’ll have to purchase for Jax (after all summer is coming and in that Arizona sun we’re going to have to keep him covered!):

Newsboy cap – so cute!

So if you want a unique item for your kiddos too (or for your wedding!)  hope on over to Casanees and support handmade!

Featured Etsy Shop: Breelzebub

One of my loves is vintage and thrift-store shopping.  In Portland we have a goodwill called “The Bins” where all goodwill stuff goes to die (or this is how me and my friend Althea explain it to people).  Basically, in any of the goodwill stores around Portland if stuff has been on the shelf too long it gets shipped over to The Bins, a huge warehouse, and place in gigantic rolling bins by type of item (clothes, shoes, housewares, etc) – stuff is sold for about 0.50USD per pound.  It’s quite the deal.

Anyway, going to The Bins and thrifting is my “go-to” on the weekends so it’s no surprise that when we found this shop, Breelzebub, and it had vintage Bert and Ernie dolls for our giveaway, I HAD to look around.

Breanna has such cool, kitschy stuff . . . and clearly she also has talent radiating from her little fingers because not only does she have thrifted stuff, she also has her own handmade jewelry (much of it from vintage items), as well as artwork!  Just look at these 1980s-esque chain earrings.

Maybe we can convince her to donate some for Ashley’s Friday Fashion posts! *hint, hint*

Breanna got her start working in the real estate industry for the last 6 years but she decided to finally “do her own thing” and started her Etsy store last August (lucky for us!).   She actually got started by selling her original handcrafted jewelry and artwork and ended up going through all her old toys, clothes and other vintage items she had around. I’m not sure if this reversible clutch purse used to be hers but . . . I’m in love!

I love this little vintage find and know it would go great with many of my summer outfits!

Breanna told us, “once I started listing other “stuff”, things became really fun!!! My mother and I have always loved thrift shopping and now it’s even more fun when I find something to offer in my store.  It’s a great feeling when someone thousands of miles away finds something they like and you can make them happy by sending them that one little item.  I’ve been fortunate enough to ship all over the world, Australia, Spain, Kuwait and Japan (just to name a few) and it’s been awesome!”

But of course what drew us to her shop were the kitschy and vintage toys there!  Bert and Ernie were too much to pass up and we’re SO lucky she decided to donate them for Jax’s Birthday Giveaway, but I’m also in love with this little vintage red deer:

Oh my he would be perfect in some kitschy nursery!

Remember my Wednesday Wants: Woodland Nursery? Wouldn’t he be perfect on a shelf or something (especially if you wanted to give it a little more of a 70s/60s vibe?).

I’m also loving this little roller girl but maybe that’s because Dee is really into windup toys right now:

1979 Tomy wind-up Roller girl toy from Breelzebub

Breanna hopes is that someday her little store will be big enough to financially support her and possibly help her move to a warmer state (“the weather is absolutely miserable here, bleck”).  So, you know, help her out with that warmer state thing and go purchase one of her cute little toys at Breelzebub already!
