Hi all! It’s been a while! I hope everyone is having a lovely summer. I’m just here going nuts over all the best picks from Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale (which goes live to the public TONIGHT)…trying to practice restraint but failing. I’ve rounded up my favorite little kid, big kid and baby gear items (yup, we’re talking car seats, strollers, bike chariots, and Aden+Anais swaddling blankets to name just a few), but the clothes? I wish they made half of these things in my size…
Little Giraffe Luxe Hooded Towel – Oh the softness…yes. Precious sweet gift or a nice treat for your little from yourself. Because you’ll get to hold that little bundle in the softness! Everyone wins.
The Honest Co. Snake Print Backpack Diaper Bag – Such cute styling…doesn’t look like a diaper bag at all. Love all the pockets and the easy clean fabric. And you know I prefer a backpack. So cute.
Aden + Anais Print Swaddling Cloths – Seriously the best swaddles ever. SO insanely soft and these prints are so happy and adorable. Such a great gift or addition to your baby gear. These are some of the few baby things I refuse to get rid of.
Ergo Baby 360 Carrier – Best. Baby. Gear. I know most of you know the amazingness that is the Ergo. I tried quite a few carriers and this is the one I still own and use and hands down my favorite from when Sienna was tiny to now when she’s 30 lbs and still rides on my back in it. So versatile and lasts forever.
Maxi Cosi Pria 85 Special Edition Herringbone Carseat with Sunshade – LOVE this carseat in the herringbone print. It gets 283 4.5 star reviews on Amazon and it’s a great savings during the sale. If anyone has more experience with this seat or the Maxi Cosi line in general, please chime in. I’ve only ever heard great things.
Nuna Sena Travel Crib + Changer – I love the sleek and non-baby gear design of this travel crib. The reviews say it’s really easy to setup with one hand (yes!) Great time to buy these higher end baby items during the sale. This is one I’d be happy to display in my bedroom for months on end.
Baby Gear Picks
Truly Me Mermaids Don’t Nap Tee – I guess Sienna is a mermaid…(sob)
Vigoss Polka Dot Skinny Jeans – So adorable. A neutral print pant is so so cute on littles and goes with everything. Plus, black is just practical.
Puma Steeple Glitz Sneaker – SO loving these. And, velcro.
Tucker + Tate Teddy Faux Fur Bomber Jacket – A cozy bomber jacket? I can haz, please? Precious.
Peek Raquel Stripe Sleeveless Top – Adorable stripes, adorable sleeves. There aren’t a ton of summery items in the sale…definitely a favorite.
Tucker + Tate Graphic Baseball Tee – The cutest little rainbow face. I love baseball tees. Would be super cute with the floral leggings.
Tucker + Tate Sadie Print Jeggings – Again, I adore a printed pant for Sienna. Mixing and matching prints in an outfit makes it so interesting and while it’s harder for us to pull off printed pants, it’s easy and adorable for littles!
Michael Kors ‘Ivy Mae’ High Top Sneaker – Gold hi tops…you know I’m in. All day.
Toddler & Little Girl Picks
Peek Don’t Feed the Bears Tee – A good recommendation. Super cute design.
Tucker + Tate Trunks (5-pack) – The cutest little undies ever. Hooray for no characters on them! The bacon and eggs pair…
Jem Star Wars Hoodie – Love the vintage look of this. I want.
Chuck Taylor Axel Mid-Top Sneaker – So so love. The two-tone is great on these. As are the colors. Interesting, but neutral.
Munki Munki Spaceship PJ’s – The colors and print on these PJ’s are perfect. There’s just something about little boys and space PJ’s that makes me maybe want another…nope! But they are so cute.
Junk Food Thumbs Up Tee – I like you, too!
Peek Slim Fit Cotton Twill Chino Pants – Come in toddler, little and big boy sizes. Adore the blue color. Your little man will be so stylish in these!
Toddler & Little Boy Picks
Tucker + Tate Stripe Tee – This is adorable. Love the hemline. Also comes in ivory.
Hudson Jeans Roll Cuff Denim Shorts – Super cute shorts, a good length and nicely priced. Again, one of the fewer summery items. Gah, the wash on these is perfect.
Tucker + Tate Printed Sleeveless Tunic – Adore this blue watercolor print on this. Pair with the shorts and the olive green ankle boots for now or early back to school. So cute.
Tucker + Tate Tandemm Zipper Bootie – These. Adorable. This olive green is my favorite color…a more interesting neutral shoe color. Great style on these. Tucker + Tate has some really great items for all sizes in the sale.
Ruby and Bloom Lilee Ghillie Flat – So super cute and in toddler, little and big kid sizes.
PJ Salvage Panda Pajamas – OMG. These I really want. Also come in polar bear. Low in stock but rumor has it they restock for the general sale.
Hudson Kids Krista Denim Jacket With Faux Shearling Collar – So perfection. The collar makes it a great cozy jacket to wear all fall. Love.
Steve Madden Jlinqs Hidden Wedge Sneaker – Little and big kid sizes. So insanely rad. Wear with skinny jeans and a plaid shirt and throw on that awesome jean jacket.
Joe’s Brixton Slim Fit Jeans – in toddler, little and big boy sizes. These are a great wash and would look perfect with any of the other pieces here.
Vans UY Sk8 Hi Top Zip Sneaker – Yes to Vans on boys and girls, of any age. Comfy and a great zip at the back for easily getting on. These are cool.
Quiksilver Baxter Marled Fleece Zip Hoodie – Love the stripes on this. A great go-to piece for all seasons.
Tucker + Tate Quilted Hooded Jacket with Knit Sleeves – Ugh, already out of stock for the presale, but hoping they’ll restock for general sale. I adore this. So cool over the black and red gingham shirt.
Peek Double Face Gingham Shirt – Love this classic gingham red and black. Great with the black jeans or with olive green closer to the holidays. Yes.
Chuck Taylor Axel Mid-Top Sneaker – Love them for little guys and bigger guys, so I had to include them again. Such a great color combo.
Happy shopping, mamas! If you find any other favorites for your kiddos, do share! Does anyone else think keeping up with kid’s clothing is a full time job? Whew. I swear all of Sienna’s leggings became capris over night. Slow down, Little Spicy! (That’s my current nickname for her…because the sass is in full effect over here)
‘Til next time…
Love your recs. I call my little sassafrass a threenager! The sass is REAL!
Thanks, Hope! Yes, experiencing why the term threenager was invented…whew!
My son has worn his Plae shoes for a year and they barely look worn. The straps are inter changeable too. But I’m thinking of switching to those zip up vans, hum.
Ah, good to know! But yes, love the Vans, too!
Super cute picks! I cant wait until my niece is a toddler so i can utilize these sales, she grows out of things so quick my sister just stock piled her stuff. Im finally meeting her in September, cant wait to kiss her face!! 🙂
We have had the Maxi Cosi for about 2 years. We got it for safety and the high weight rating. We breed tall and skinny kids. This brand has worked incredibly well for us. Though we try to support American we like this Dutch seat. Well made. But key factors to consider any carseat – how does it fit in you car(s)? Have your kid test drive it? Do they look comfortable? Not to through in a wrench…we also love our Peg Perego Prima Viaggo. Being nerdy people and ones who like to spend our chunk of change in quality (baby stuff can be expensive!) I think we went overboard on the baby hear research with the first kid. But we’ve been pleased with the car seat choices and our second kiddo is reaping the benefits! Thank you for your posts love this blog and all the contributors! Happy day to you.
Thanks so much for the great info Karla!!! 🙂
Plae shoes rock! That’s all I buy now.
