Kideko Bedding: Real World Bedding for Big Kids

There comes a time in every child's life when they outgrow the nursery bedding that you carefully selected for them. They will inevitably go through a phase where they want bedding that goes along with their ever changing personal tastes or the current movie of the month. Ultimately they will grow into a more grown up style that captures their own personal style.

An Australian bedding company, Kideko, has created a fantastic collection that captures the spirit of today's big kids. Cute, but not cutesy. Modern, but not for mom and dad. The perfect bedding for the 'tween market. The sets are even reasonably priced at $150 for a duvet cover and standard pillowcase.

Available online at Juvie.

Surri Dresses: Conservative Stylings for Mini-Fashionistas

Dressing boys up for special occasions is fairly easy -- a pair of slacks, a button-up shirt, maybe a jacket or sweater if its cool. Girls are a little more difficult. First - they typically have a definite opinion about what they want to wear. Second - they have to find something that is stylish, age-appropriate, and fitting for the occasion itself.

The new collection of special occasion wear by Surri puts an elegant spin on dressing up your little fashionista for cool weather special occasions.

Fall Sale Time at Old Navy: Up to 40% Off

One of my budget mom secrets is that I only buy one new outfit for each of the boys before school starts each year. They get a new outfit for the first day of school and I put off all other clothing purchases until after school commences. Everything goes on sale just after the start of the school year and I set my budget accordingly. This little trip usually allows me to buy nearly double the amount of school clothes for each child than had I paid full price.

One of the basic staples in my kids' closets are everyday play clothes from Old Navy. Right now they are busy stocking their racks with winter fashions and discounting all the summer and fall stock.

Some of my favorites:

Girls Short-Sleeve Hooded Dresses
Regular price: $19.50
Sale price: $10.00

Boys Quilted Hooded Jackets
Regular Price: $29.50
Sale Price: $20.00

Petunia Pickle Bottom's Dewberry Roll Fawn Collection: True Baby Luxury

Petunia Pickle Bottom's has created a luscious collection of crib bedding designed to surround your baby in luxury. The entire collection is full of the most delightful brocades and linens available.

We love the Dewberry Roll crib set which pays homage to vintage wallpaper from the art deco era. The fabrics feature a pink aster scrolled medallion motif across a flax colored background. Flax colored linen sheets and a soft, brocade edged crib blanket complete the crib set.

Each set comes with a plush crib bumper with box-pleated corners and brocade ties, a box-pleated crib skirt, an double sided blanket.

If your baby is not quite ready for the crib or you want to keep them close by at bedtime. Petunia Pickle Bottom has also created Cariboo Bassinet Set in the Dewberry Roll fabrics. The Cariboo is one of my favorite products and the perfect first resting place for newborns.

Jean Bourget Sweaters: Making Bundled Up Look Sweet

This week school started and the weather turned cold in Minnesota. Last week it was 90 degrees and I was looking for a new swimsuit for my eight year old who decided to grow two inches in a month. This week I'm looking for new sweaters and hoodies. I've even started to think about buying snowpants and boots for the upcoming winter.

I love the collection of earth-toned sweaters from Jean Bourget that has made its debut at Juvie. The entire line includes an adorable selection of separates designed to be mixed-matched-and-layered to keep up with the ever changing weather patterns. All this style does not come cheap with each sweater retailing at approximately $75 each.

Fall is in the Air

Fall has arrived with a chill in the air. Posts have been sparse in August at The Stylish Child due to my MIL's daily cancer treatments. The kids have headed back to school and things are starting to return to normal.

It's time to breath some new life back into the site and get back to posting all the great products, sales, and information that I find.

We have a new template to match the new season and I will be working through a massive backlog of new product announcements, sale notices and checking in on some of my old favorite companies for all of their latest introductions.
