Crewcuts: Major Winter Savings on Classic Fashions

The collection by Crewcuts for J. Crew is the perfect mix of classic designs mixed with contemporary fabrics and patterns. (The first daughters famously wore jackets by the line for the Obama inauguration!) Right now, there are major discounts on the winter collection.

My favorites:

I adore the Girls' Wool Herringbone Jodie Dress with its simple A-line shape and bright herringbone weave. Now on sale for $39.99 (regular price $98.00)

For the boys, I love the Boys' Cotton Shawl-Collar Sweater with its simple button collar and elbow patches. Now on sale for $29.99 (regular price $49.50).

There are deals to be found on all the fall fashions for both girls and boys online and in stores. Visit their site at today!

Ellie Bellie Kids: Great Deals for Your Kids Imagination

Given the recent sub-zero temperatures in the Midwest it is hard to imagine that the warm days of summer will soon be approaching. Summer means days playing in the sunshine and embracing the spirit of childhood with my kids.

I was excited to find a new sale announcement in my inbox this afternoon from one of my favorite companies which is all about the spirit of childhood, Ellie Bellie Kids. For a limited time only, their adorable reversible tutus are on sale for $25 and their mini-messenger bags are reduced to $15.

With three boys, we don't get much use of out the tutus, but
my oldest son has used one of the Ellie Bellie Kids messenger bags for the past two summers as his hiking bag. Every weekend he totes it on our summer explorations and fills it to capacity with rocks, leaves, and every other treasure that captures the imagination of a true nature boy.
