[Kid Tested, Mom Approved! - Link Up] The Style File

I'm so excited to kick off our Link Up Party with The Style File post hosted by Hello Erin!  I'm sure this link up will bring lots of kiddie fall style inspiration and probably quite a surge to the economy and GAP stock.

However, instead of showing my love for my usual Baby Gap finds, you know my favorite go-to, I thought I'd highlight my favorite Etsy style shops.   There are so many great shops popping up left and right and there is just something I love about supporting small business and handmade goods.  It also guarantees that my little will never look like the kid next door!

Sugar Plum Lane Baby Boutique is one of my favorite Etsy shops.  I found her back in the early summer and snagged Ashlynn a pair of cute heart leggings.  We decided to bring you a Giveaway this fall since her Fall Line is AMAZING.  Seriously, so stay tuned for that!

Another favorite, naturally, is Littlest Pretty Things, started by my friend Heather over at Littlest Pretty Things blog (obv).  She's actually the one who inspired me to start sewing and has sent Ashlynn some of the most adorable handmade items.  I love that her leggings are bit more on the girly side (for us #girlmoms) with florals and soft colors.  Of course the hipster prints of a mustaches, arrows, and animal prints are cute, but there is something I love about the mix of feminine prints.  She's also going to be offering some new products this Fall that I'm SUPER excited about, so again, stay tuned as I'm going to be showing some of them off here on the ol' blog.

Lion and Lamb Tees has such cute screen printed tees.  Since Ashlynn's days in onesies, and my tolerance for dealing with snaps, is coming to end, I can't wait to add some cute unique tees to her closet!

Dreamcatcher Baby is a shop I found on Instagram and immediately fell in love.  I can be really picky about dresses with Ashlynn since I'm not a girly girl type of mom.  However, there is something so sweet about their signature bow dress that I just can't wait to get a matching or coordinating for Ashlynn and Baby K.  And this picture she posted on IG with mustard Freshly Picked moccs... I die!

Indie Nook has a great selection of tees, leggings, and gifts for both boys and girls.  There really is something for everyone and they have the cutest trendy prints.  I love the juice box baseball tee, so cute!

Eleventy Five, again another screen printing shop that hits the nail on the head.  From babies to adults, they have the cutest prints on organic products.  I'm already eyeing multiple onesies for Baby K!  (and the bunny for Ashlynn, of course!)

Of course I had to add in some of my favorite accessory shops!  Speaking earlier of Giveaways, be sure to stay tuned for some goodies from Georgia & Jane and Pretty Little Elm.  Ashlynn is a huge fan of both these shops!

Sadie Sky Boutique I found on Instagram and she also makes the cutest little leather bows and headbands that are unique.  She's also a total sweetheart!

Little Mr. Ties is adorable for the little men out there, if I had a little XY running around, you can bet we'd be stocked in these adorable bow ties.

Raine & Skye has the cutest twisted knot clips and a great selection of turbans too.  This may be the one clip Ashlynn leaves in for extended periods of time - huge win in my book!

And seriously, you can't beat a printed infinity scarf.  LOVE!  Busy Spinning Thread definitely got this right!  And right now thru September 10th you can get 20% off orders of $25 or more with code STRAWBERRYSWING!
