She {hearts} Gretchen Scott Designs

GSD

GSD_meI think I love almost everything that this designer has in their store. I’m a big fan of fun & colorful tunics, dresses, and cover-ups to add to my summertime wardrobe and everything they have is right down my alley! And to make it extra special, they have Mommy & Me clothes so my baby girl and I can match!

Gretchen Scott carries the “Laugh More Gripe Less. Ignore Critics. Say Yes. Order Dessert. Love Life” mantra and it’s tagged on every Gretchen Scott item. Known for her festive tunics and dresses, Gretchen inserts life and personality into her designs. Gretchen created a sustainable line of clothing that makes summer, holiday and warm climate dressing easy. Her clothes are about accessing a place that is chic, joyous, playful and fun. She looks at the clothing need realities of her customers: clothing that packs easily, transitions from day to night, office to dinner or cocktails, carpool to swimming pool. She said, “If you can give that, with clean lines and surprise elements – it’s a homerun.”

She finds inspriation from her travels across the world. Her designs reflect a global perspective with India being the biggest part. She feels the Indian sense of color, proportion and incredible embroidery is amazing. Hand printed, festive fabrics and vibrant inks define Gretchen Scott Designs’ look.

Gretchen Scott Designs is sold in over 1000 stores worldwide.

Check out a few of my favorite Gretchen Scott Designs that hang in my closet:
Happy Turtle Mommy & Me Tunic
Sea Not Navy Mommy & Me Tunic (featured here with my daughter and I)

She {hearts} Muchilunga

muchlin

IMG_2488_withlogoI came across Muchilunga at a Christmas Show a couple of years ago. As soon as I saw their clothing line I knew my daughter had to have one of their dresses! I purchased one for her that particular year and used it during our family portrait session. The next year when I went back to the same Christmas Show, I was so excited to see a Muchilunga booth again, and I had to buy another one of their adorable dresses! To the left is a photo of my friends daughter whom we passed our first Muchilunga dress down to. She even wore it for her 2 year portrait session!

Of the two Muchilunga dresses my daughter owns, they are both from their fall line of clothing and they are easily some of my favorite dresses of hers. But this year’s summer line is oh so adorable too! You’ve got to go check out the cuteness oozing from their website. Their clothing is so unique from all the rest out there and everything they have is adorable!

They offer girls dresses, pants, shirts, and the cutest rompers. But boys and Mommies aren’t left out because they also have shirts and bow-ties for boys and I’m in love with their Mommy tunics.

She {hearts} SwimZip

Sun protection is super important to me, especially when it comes to my kids. My kids have acquired my exceptional paleness (you’re welcome, my dears) so it’s always a long, dramatic process to get them sunscreened up in the summertime. Sunburns and the potential long-term effects of too much sun exposure are painful, scary, and issues that should not be taken lightly.

SwimZip is a line of fashionable kids swimwear whose shirts zip up the front, making UV protection a “zip!” Their adorable SPF 50+ line keeps kids skin sun-safe and reduces the need for lots of chemical-laden sunscreen on their delicate, often sensitive skin. And, as every parent knows, it’s usually not a fun time having to wrangle a wriggling two year old and lather them up every few hours while they are having fun in the sun. Each SwimZip piece is made of quality stretch lycra/nylon, which blocks 99% of UVA and UVB rays and is chlorine resistant. This tagless line’s key feature is the full length front zipper, which makes for easy on, easy off (especially when wet!).

Betsy, the founder of SwimZip, was diagnosed with skin cancer at just 26 years old. She wanted to take her scary and traumatic experience and bring something good of it, and she saw it as a “chance to help others avoid my fate – and maybe even save lives.” Betsy says, “With the conviction that comes from knowing without a doubt that you are doing something right, I dove headfirst into the world of UPF sun protective clothing … and thus was born SwimZip.”

Betsy graciously sent me the Caribbean Dolphin front zip rash guard shirt for my oldest daughter to try out when we went on our beach vacation this past week. I love how the shirt opens and zips up the front of the body, eliminating the hassle of trying to fit a big-kid head through the usually small head hole of normal rash guard shirts. The material is light and comfortable, and kept my daughter cool yet protected those delicate shoulders with an SPF of 50+. Plus, how bright and fun is the design? And the hot pink definitely pleased my girly-girl.

The SwimZip sets are ADORABLE and so unique. My favorites are Grey Grey Go Away! and Ruffle Me Pretty.

{heart} It

SwimZip SPF 50+ kids swimwear is perfect for summertime swimming and outside play at the beach, at the pool, or in the backyard. These pieces give kids ultra sun protection while adding so much style with their unique designs and front zipper feature. SwimZip was born of a passion to protect kids from the harmful effects of too much sun exposure without using harsh chemicals and with ease and style in mind. You can also find SwimZip on Facebook and Twitter.

Betsy would like to give away one SwimZip front zip rash guard in either Caribbean Dolphin or South Seas Turtle to one lucky She {hearts} It reader!

She {hearts} Lilla Rose

IMG_7753

This summer I discovered a hair accessory that I thought was gorgeous and also really practical.  Lilla Rose sells something called a Flexi Clip, which can be used for a variety of hair styles and in pretty much every hair type.  I have incredibly fine thin hair that is very slippery, and I can easily use the Flexi.

Lilla Rose is an independent sales company, so anyone can sign up to sell their products.  I got in touch with Anjanette Barr through YouTube I believe, and was able to place an order earlier in summer.  She recently sent a beautiful Pink Fairy Flexi for my oldest daughter to try.  Bria loves it!  I have to work a little more to get it to stay in her hair, as it’s even more slippery than mine, but it looks so cute on her!

Flexi clips are made with piano wire, beads, and a pin made of zinc.  They are incredibly durable, so you won’t be replacing them over and over again.  All pieces are attached to each other as well, which makes it easy to keep track of.

Lilla Rose has some great videos on their website that help with figuring out sizing.

Lilla Rose also offers gorgeous Head Bands, O-Rings, Hair Sticks, Bobby Pins, and You-Pins.

She {hearts} Tea Collection

Faithful readers of She {hearts} It already know how much we love Tea Collection around here! Tea Collection offers beautifully designed children’s clothes that you will find yourself reaching for over and over again!

My girls have been sporting items from Tea Collection’s Fall 2012 line, and they get so many compliments on the adorable dresses! I love all of the fun colors, patterns, and prints that Tea Collection offers each season. I’m particularly fond of the Nordic Design this season.

Dresses paired with leggings offer the most versatility in my opinion, since you can buy one pair of leggings which coordinate with several different dresses or tunics.  Dresses also seem to fit longer, so I love investing in quality, beautiful dresses for my girls, knowing they will be able to wear them for quite a while (as shirts/tunics, if not as dresses)!

I love how lovely yet wearable Tea Collection’s children’s clothing is.  My girls romp and play in the dresses (in hay bales, no less!), but even after repeated washings, the outfits still look wonderful and maintain their beautiful colors.
