Welcome to the Heart N' Soul Kids blog! Here you will find the latest tips and trends on children’s fashion, as well as exclusive promotions and offers on the hottest brands for your tots!
Last month, we held an exciting casting call, offering a chance for your kiddos to be featured in our Fall/Winter photoshoot. After hundreds of entries, we chose 9 adorable winners who got to spend the day behind the cameras all dolled up in this season’s hottest swag! Congratulations to Bella, Logan, Phoenix, Isabella, Liam, Elle, Julia, Sebastian and Isaiah! You all did an incredible job!
Behind the scenes of the photoshoot, we chose 3 stylish mamas to pick their top fall items on Heart N' Soul. Check out our Q&A for the scoop on their style tips and fashion faux-pas.
Kelli Blum, Mom to Jacob, 14 months
At 14 months old, your toddler is officially on the move! What are your top 3 wardrobe essentials for your babe at this age?
“Jacob’s wardrobe is made up of stylish yet comfortable clothing. You’ll usually find him in a pair of drop crotch sweats, a comfy tshiirt and a jean shirt to go over. Oh, and of course a cool pair of shoes to match!”
Aimee Geroux, Mom to, Abigail, 13, Hailee, 10 and Bella, 20 months.
With two older daughters, they must be extremely vocal when it comes to what they want to wear! Do you let them make their own wardrobe choices when it comes to getting dressed in the morning? That struggle is very real for many moms! How do you handle it?
“Oh the struggle is definitely real and probably why I enjoy Bella right now not talking much! I get to pick out everything I think is totally kick-ass and she wears whatever I throw on her!
My older two girls definitely choose what they wear each day, I don’t really have much say. With that said, I think I have instilled a great sense of fashion in each of my girls although very different. Abigail is more relaxed and laid back in her fashion where Hailee is much more girly and loves to dress up. They both get their style from me as I enjoy lounging in some cool baggy tracks with a hip boy style tank and a pair of canvas flats just as much as I enjoy throwing on a pair of skintight faux leather pants with a hot bright dress top and some heels.
When shopping for my older two they definitely have input in what we buy and I allow them to explore their sense of fashion. I think kids need to express themselves through all sorts of avenues including their clothing. I mean, as long as they aren’t throwing on dirty or worn out clothes is it worth a meltdown if they want to wear floral print with tribal print?”
Jennifer Bellantonio, Mom to Joey, 4
A school-aged toddler seems to be in the prime of his social game with all the birthday party invitations being sent his way! What’s Joey’s go-to style for these special occasions?
“Joey's an active 4 year old who gets lots of party invitations sent his way. Joey’s style is most definitely funky with an urban edge, however, with an active 4 year old, his clothing must be comfortable. Joey’s absolute go-to outfit for any party or occasion is the omamimini black zip up sweatshirt (link that look), paired with a vest or winter jacket, a pair of Noppies, slim sweatpants jeans and any cute graphic tee (Moi night blue T-birdy).”
