In Style Moms
Live life in style.

While I revel in the idea that I'm the queen of multi-tasking, I haven't mastered entering a store with my children to shop for myself. I can manage cooking a four course meal, help with homework, and feed a baby at the same time, but maintaining any sort of patience while shopping is like an extreme sport. In Style Moms provides moms the opportunity to relax at home and shop for beauty and fashion for themselves, children, and even dad. All in one fabulous spot.

I love these handbag organizers by Simply Sarah Shaw, available in a variety of stylish prints. Seven loops with silver snaps hold up to four handbags, hats, or scarves securely. The grommet allows for easy mounting on the door or wall. I slipped mine on a hanger in the closet and it worked perfectly.

IsaBooties - Trendy Soft-Soled Vegan Shoes for Babies and Toddlers

Soft-soled baby shoes for funky lil' feet!

Soft-soled shoes have been highly recommended by pediatricians. Their flexibility allows children's feet to develop naturally while building strength and coordination in little feet. While we've enjoyed the stylings of many soft-soled shoes on the market, IsaBooties offers a fresh new look for soft-soled booties, founded by moms Libby and Laura in 2004.

We've owned various soft-soled shoes over the years and I noticed a distinct difference when I received IsaBooties. Some of the issues we had with other soft-soled shoes were cracking, scuffing, and slick soles after just a few washings. IsaBooties are created from premium innovative fabrics that solve these issues.

IsaBooties are created from non-leather Ultrasuede, a super-soft and breathable fabric that is more flexible than leather products. The soles are made from Toughtek, an incredible "grip" fabric made from 100% polyester with a non-skid rubber outer-coating that is durable, soft, and flexible.

  • 100% animal-product free.
  • Machine-washable and machine-dryable and holds it's shape.
  • Won't fade, scuff, shrink or crack.
  • Color safe and stain-resistant.
  • Maintains non-skid properties after continuous wear and washings.
  • Soft elastic-ankle creates a secure and snug fit, so booties won't slip off.

IsaBooties offers a collection of unique designs that are available in a variety of trendy colors that feature coordinating European ribbons. Free gift wrapping is available or choose a stylish reusable oil cloth gift bag and included gift enclosure card, perfect for gift giving!

These ultra soft and flexible comfy booties are sure to be baby's new favorite. Now, if only they were only available in mommy sizes.

By Kim Lane Designs - Stylish Diaper Clutch, Bags, Purses and more

By Kim Lane Designs
Maintaining any sort of organization can be challenging for any busy mom. Add one or two little ones in diapers and we are a total mess. The Diaper Clutch provides us with a way to stay organized and stylish at the same time. No more scrunched up diapers and lost pacifiers.

} The roomy pocket with magnetic closure holds several diapers and other items such as keys and a pacifier.
} The exterior sleeve offers easy access to a diaper wipes case that holds most travel sized wipes cases.
} Take it on the go when a diaper bag is too bulky.
} Moms with more than one in diapers (yikes!) can use different clutches for different diaper sizes. When the munchkins are pottytrained, you have a new stylish clutch!

By Kim Lane Designs sent me the pink medley clutch and I couldn't wait to put it to the test. The quality construction and sturdy fabric is perfect for us "in a hurry, shove it in there" moms. The magnetic closure worked fabulously as I packed it full of diapers and my Huggies wipes case. I love that I can slip my I.D. and credit card into my stylish Diaper Clutch and run into the store without dealing with a bulky diaper bag or purse. But, having the security of knowing I can make a dash to the restroom to make a change without having to cut my shopping trip short.

Kim Lane creates a full line of stylish bags created with quality contemporary and conservative florals. She keeps it fresh by adding new fabrics and designs to her collection.

Do you ever go into those children's boutiques? You know, the ones with the most adorable and most fabulous goodies for babies that make you feel all tingly inside? I received some of those goodies from So Anna and love them.

Their collections are created using trendy and fun high quality fabrics. Their use of vibrant prints combined with contrasting stitching really makes their collection unique. Each item is well made with great attention to detail.

The Anna Bib is backed in the softest chenille and the magnetic closures makes it easy-on for mom, but not-so-easy-off for baby. The unique design offers extra coverage over the shoulder and the contrasting ric-rac across the front adds a finishing touch. The changing pad rolls up and ties with the attached ric-rac tie and fits perfectly in your bag. It's backed in soft chenille that provides superior absorbency for those "aahhhh!" moments.

Their hooded blanket will be a hit for any little one. This functional blanket is hooded and doubles as a towel, bedding, or stroller cover. Cozy them up in ultra soft chenille and sock monkey for their bedtime story.

Sweet Arts Design - Unique Personalized Alphabet French-English Book and Prints

We have a wonderful collection of children's books in our home, but none are as unique as this one. Sweet Arts Design has designed a French-English alphabet book that is personalized with your child's name. Young minds are like sponges and these books are a fabulous way to introduce a child to a new language.

The soft cover book is filled with a combination of vibrant colors and images that will capture your child's imagination. Each letter of the alphabet features an image that begins with both the English and French letters. Your child's name is featured on the cover and on their very own page. You also have the option of English or French only.

Sweet Art Designs also offers a variety children's and adult clothing that features their original artwork. The varying colors of the alphabet prints and personalized prints would coordinate with most decor and are available in 8x10 and 11x14. Select from their collection of gifts featuring their artwork, such as bags, notepads, and teddy bears. Their products offer a variety of choices such as color, font, and design.

Makenna and I enjoy reading her new book together. Although, I'm sure it's quite humorous to listen to my attempt at reading French. But, if Makenna enjoys it and it's encouraging her to learn, then I don't mind. She is always engaged when I read it and studies each image, kissing each animal before I turn the page.

Teaching a foreign language can be challenging, especially when you don't speak it. But with helpful tools, such as this keepsake book, introducing your child to the French language is easier and also enjoyable.
