Whether you live in a very cold country or you’re just spending the holidays at a below zero destination, you’re going to need to protect your hands and fingers from frostbite. This statement holds especially true for your children, as they’re much more fragile than your average person. So what do you want to do? Find the pair of gloves that can equally stand the weather and make your little princesses look stylish.

Basically, if you don’t want to sacrifice style, you need to make sure the gloves feature a good color and that they are the perfect fit for your kids’ hands. Whether you choose to pamper them with mittens, fingerless gloves or even styles made out of wool, odds are you’ll be protecting their little hands without giving up on style.

But if you still don’t know which ones to get, view your options below.

The very end of august means one thing and one thing only: school is back. And with all the “back to school” shenanigans comes a whole lot of responsibility from the parents’ side. After all, what will your kids be wearing come the big day? Will they be wearing something very comfortable or something rather stylish instead? But most importantly, which backpack will they welcome the new school year with?

With that in mind, every school year brings the same kind of dilemma – embellished backpack or a standard one, a mini backpack or something even more rectangular and larger. But if there’s one thing we can all agree on, is that the backpack should be small enough not to overload your children’s backs and large enough to contain their books and well, yummy snacks. The good news is that the styles are by the dozen and the colors even more so. So parents, this year, let your children step into school with taste and functionality with these adorable backpacks. Don’t worry, we won’t judge if you want to buy them all...

Mini-Purse for Mini-Mes

Cover Photo Courtesy of Alexandalexa.com

Little Miss Sunshines with equally adorable purses? Yes, please! This year, we’ve seen a lot of resurgence of retro and classic trends – yes, even for childrenwear. But if there’s one thing that doesn’t change through time and space, is the love we women have for purses. And what’s a good old love if it doesn’t start from a very young age?

That said, I remember the first time my mother gave me a purse. I was so ecstatic that even though I didn’t have anything to put in it, I filled it with fake Monopoly money just so I could flaunt my brand new style. Granted, kids might not have extremely important essentials to fit in their bags, but they sure look cute walking around with them. And who doesn’t love to see the smile on kids’ faces when they’re happy with their new toy? Luckily, this season has given away more than a few styles to fit your children’s everyday wants, from cross-body bags, to mini-bags and top-handle purses.

So what will you spoil them with?

The Best Caps You Can Spoil Your Kids With

Cover Photo Courtesy of Dior.com

We’re no psychics, but if there’s one thing we know for sure, it’s that boys love their own share of baseball caps. Perhaps it’s about looking cool in front of their peers or perhaps it’s simply a rite of passage; but whatever it is, they can’t seem to get enough of them.

Caps have stood the test of time, staying in style from decade to decade and have unfortunately had their fair share of bad reviews. But at the end of the day, these must-haves feature advantages that can make any opponent of this trend become a proponent. Not only do they protect our kids from sunburn, but they also look cool on any piece of clothing or any style for that matter. And with a palette of never-ending colors, a series of embellished caps and logo styles, it’s all very versatile and self-satisfying! From mesh caps, to leather, nylon and denim, it’s all there and it’s all oh-so exquisite!

So parents, which ones will you choose?
