One of my favorite series to do is 'Outfit to Room'. And correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems to be a reader favorite too. So it wouldn't be a proper Baby and Kids Week without some fashion and interiors pairings featuring my number one source for children's clothing: CrewCuts by J. Crew!
I'm not sure what slays me more: the slim riding pants and shawl collar cardigan, or the striped bed and moody black chandelier. If my future little ones are even half this stylish and saucy, I will consider my job very well done indeed!
While I scoured the web for kids' spaces, this yellow bedroom stole my heart. The antique French headboards and frilly curtains have a classic girly sensibility, yet the palette of yellow and gold gives the room a retro edge. Naturally, a ruffled dress/straw fedora combo is the perfect match!
In high school I was an extremely popular babysitter. The kids loved to eat my mac and cheese, and the mothers loved to arrive home and find their children impeccably attired. For my own part, I had a little too much fun dressing my charges in chic outfits and parading them around the playground!
But can you blame me? Who could resist the opportunity to revel in tiny jeans, wee button downs, and itty bitty boots? It's a good thing I'd yet to discover my passion for interiors--I doubt the moms would have been thrilled had I begun construction on a super cool loft bed like the one above!
Of course I'm not totally out to lunch; I know that when you have kids, 99% of the time you just want to make life easier. And what could be easier that a comfy polo shirt and sneakers, or a simple bedtime vignette in muted colors and cozy textures? It's fashion meets function par excellence!
