Toddler Style

For the past few months I've been kinda obessed with SHOPPING ON INSTAGRAM.  Something I didn't even know what a thing before I stumbled across some cute shop that sold cute hand printed tees.  Kinda like a new outlet for shops on Etsy to get their stuff out there & seen.

One shop lead me to another shop, to another shop....

Many of these shops have etsy or etsy-like websites as well, but what is so awesome and what really sucked me in is that they have "INSTA-SALES" where they'll post some merch on their instagram feed with a price & ask for people to leave their emails if they'd like to buy.  They then send you a PayPal invoice & ship the product out after you pay.   

This has been a fun pasttime of mine.  Instasales are usually at a discount price and it's always fun to snag deal!

It's been fun picking up cute tees and leggings for Cannon to rock.

He's become quite stylish.

Another thing I've discovered on IG is a whole slew of parents that have been doing this for awhile and have kids with stocked closets of super-cute, trendy new styles and post lots of pics of their kiddos in oh-so-cute poses.  

It's adorable to see, and I admit I love to take pics of Cannon when he's all hipster-d out.  But I've also seen some kids dressed up in, albeit, adorable outfits... that look a little like mini-adult attire, but don't look very comfy. 

Some of those pictures make me uncomfortable.
Little baby/toddler girls in tight pencils shirts?  Giant flowers on their heads? Little boys in supertight skinny jeans with heavy Timberland boots....  

I'm ALL ABOUT STYLE, but comfortable style. Age-Appropriate style.   

I'm not one to buy clothing that is only meant to take pictures in. I want CUTE STYLISH, FUN & PLAYFUL clothing, that steers away from too many "licensed" cartoonish, typical kids clothing.

Im ALL ABOUT supporting work-at-home moms sewing & printing cute stuff, I also love classic pieces that can be found at Khols, Target, & Old Navy.  And am always on the hunt for cute things everywhere I go from Wal-Mart to Consignment shops.

I'm gonna be posting some of my little man's fav finds here in seperate posts & sharing some of my fav INSTA-SHOPS!
