KicKee Pants {Review}

Labor Day “officially” marks the end of summer, at least according to people who have kids in school. For those of us with kids little enough to be at home 24/7, summer’s still going, and will be for at least another month. But for those of you with school-age children, chances are, you’ve already done most of your back-to-school shopping, or maybe you’re going to finish it up this weekend with all the good Labor Day sales. But in case you’ve got just a few items of clothing left on your list or you’re looking for a gift for a friend (or something for yourself!) look no further than KicKee Pants!

KicKee Pants designs all its clothing with the idea that “children should feel unrestricted by their clothing, even when they are dressed up, and that apparel for little ones should celebrate the innocence of childhood!” I love this mantra! Kids should be able to run, skip, tumble and play in their clothes, but not have to live in grungy sweats 24/7 to be able to do so. KicKee Pants has an adorable girls line including dresses, rompers, pants, hoodies, tights and leggings, and much more. Check out just some of these cute designs!

Their boys line is equally cute (though we should say “cool” for the sake of the boys). I love their pajama line–they pair fun fabrics in bold colors for the bottoms with a coordinating top. Some tops have a large single-digit number on them. How fun would it be to get a set of pajamas with your new age for your birthday?!

We were sent the Print Long Sleeve Polo in River Lattice to review. The shirt is solidly constructed and fits just right. My son is currently wearing a size 4T/5T/Boys size 4, and the size 5 fit him perfectly. The sleeves seemed a bit short, but maybe my son just has monkey arms (his dad does, so it’s a possibility). The fabric (95% Viscose from bamboo, 5% Spandex) is SUPER soft and stretchy and feels like it would be so comfortable to wear. It is long sleeved which will be warm in the winter but is light (not thin) which is good for my always-running-around-and-getting-sweaty boy. I love the print–it is fun and unique, and the colors blend well together. The blue looks great on my son, too! There’s no way I could get him to put this on with a pair of jeans or khaki pants in this heat, but you can imagine how slick this would look paired with a pair of pants!

KicKee Pants also has a great Women’s line. They sell all sorts of cute Maternity Shirts as well as Nightgowns and Robes. The nightgowns are made out of the same fabric as the shirt we were sent, and believe me, I could LIVE in a nightgown made out of this fabric.  I really don’t think I’d ever change out of it because it’s just so soft and stretchy and dreamy. The website suggests pairing the Nightgown with a Newborn Outfit (which they also sell) as a shower gift–how perfect would that be?!

I hope everyone had a most wonderful holiday break!  Our Christmas and New Years with family was simply wonderful, and its great to be back a-giveaway-ing!  We spent our Christmas with my in-laws, and my sister-in-law is a professional quilter and runs a perfectly inspiring blog showing off her creations.  What makes her quilts so stunning are her fabric choices–top quality, vibrant colors, chic design, etc.  I instantly thought of her when I started perusing the clothing collections of Taylor Joelle.  Similarly, what makes their clothing line so fabulous is their top quality fabrics and chic designs.  Like a good quilt, every piece of Taylor Joelle looks perfectly put together with time, thought, and a personal hand-made touch.

 I owed a friend of mine a favor, and to pay my debt, I kidnapped her daughter for the morning, dressed her up, and we had a little photoshoot.  Isn’t she adorable?  Here she is wearing the Uptown Tunic Dress from the Midnight In Manhattan collection.
