Chrissy’s Knee High Socks

Several weeks ago I was sent a few pairs of socks from Chrissy’s Knee High Socks. As it is summer, I am not wearing knee socks, but I do like wearing socks in the fall and winter. I thought I was being sent knee socks, but the socks I received were extremely long, they went way past my knees, and looking at their site, it looks like I was sent thigh high socks.

Frankly, I would have preferred to select the kind and style of socks that I will actually wear. The socks are colorful and seem well made. They have socks for men and women on their site.

You can find socks for all kinds holidays as well. They even have custom socks you can order, like socks for your roller derby or sports team.

 

If you want to check them out, they are having a sale now. Let me know what you think.

Classic Heirloom Style for Babies & Toddlers For 100 Years and Counting

They say good taste never goes out of style. I have always loved dressing my babies and toddlers in classic, smocked clothing. One name that has been my go to brand is, Feltman Brothers. They have been around for 100 years and counting for good reason.

Their clothing is quality made, I still have some of the Friedknit and smocked outfits and dresses from my oldest children, and they still look great. They make the kind of heirloom clothing, that can be passed down from one generation to the next, with hand embroidery and smocking that is beyond beautiful.

The timeless style is a favorite to wear for portraits and photographers, even hobby photographers, like myself, love taking photos of children wearing their clothing. I loved dressing up my kids in their smocked dresses, smocked shortalls, sailor suits and more. Nothing has changed, they are still my favorite brand for beautiful children’s clothing, that creates those picture perfect memories.

This year’s holiday collection is white and wonderful. I especially love the Short Sleeve Holiday Pearl Flower Bishop Dress. The dress features hand embroidered flowers and leaves all over the dress, on the cuffs, collar and hem.

The smocking features flowers, pearls and bullions in traditional holiday colors. Dreamy feather stitching lines the neck of the dress and is in a beautiful scalloped design along the bottom. This dress is everything you would expect from Feltman Brothers, the quality is second to none.

Bonnets seem so hard to find these days and it is a shame because they look so beautiful on baby girls. At Feltman Brothers you can find the Holiday Smocked Bonnet that is available in a range of sizes up to 24 months.

For little boys their holiday creepers, Bobby Suits and longalls are reminiscent of yesteryear and look absolutely adorable with hand smocking and embroidery.

How cute is the Tree Bubble Romper for baby girls? I just love this look with its beautiful hand embroidery and smocking.

The Holiday Knit Longall will keep even the newest babies, looking festive and keep them warm.

If you love dressing babies and toddlers in heirloom clothing, you need to check out Feltman Brothers. They have clothing for all occasions and even have an outlet shop on their website where you can score some good deals on their quality designs. Let me know if you love their clothing as much as I do.

prAna Clothing Fits Me & Whatever I am Doing Perfectly! #mod4prAna

Wow, it has been an absolute wild weather ride for Texas and Florida the last couple of weeks. Even if you don’t live there, chances are you have family members and friends who do. Add to that, the fires in Washington and California, the severe drought in Montana, and you may be like me, very worried about our world and its residents.

I think in these times people are looking to spread positivity, if there is anything good to come out of these catastrophic weather events, it is the way people have pulled together to help. I mean even in New York where I live, they are having clothing drives for the displaced Texans who lost everything in Hurricane Harvey. Now, I am sure, more people will band together to help Floridians get back on their feet.

One way to help our planet every day is to make sure everything you purchase for yourself or as a gift makes a positive impact. Clothing is something we all buy and yet, some manufacturers are not doing the right things. Recently, I ordered some items from prAna, they offer organic, hemp, sustainable and fair trade items that you feel great about wearing and giving for gifts.

The company’s mission is to give people the option of reaching into their closet and dressing in items that reflect who they are. I was pleased to browse their site, and see clothing that I could dress up or down. Pieces that had the versatility to go from hanging out on the weekend to a night on the town easily.

With the weather changing so quickly here in the northeast, it seems we embarked on fall well before we were ready to say goodbye to summer. Little did I realize, I would be embracing my new Daria Sweater Hoodie as soon as I did. It is so soft and comfortable. The sweater is woven from a lightweight organic cotton in a fine gauge knit. It is oversized which makes it great for layering. The perfect sweater to cheer my little ones on from the sidelines of the soccer game. I can wear a turtleneck underneath or wear it alone to change-up the look or for added warmth. Adding accessories can customize the look for wherever I am going. I love the big front pocket to keep my hands warm and the hood adds some fun flair.

The Manta Pants I ordered are my new favorite pants. They are made of a hemp and recycled poly blend  woven with 3% spandex for extra mobility. The waistband is constructed from an organic cotton and hemp blend knit and features an adjustable internal drawcord to give me a secure fit. They are cut with a mid-rise and straight leg that give me that relaxed fit I love. They are so comfortable and the black herringbone color I chose dresses them up without compromising comfort. I can easily wear them out to run errands, attend meetings at the school, or to coffee with a friend, and they are my first choice to wear when spending a lazy day at home.

I think the versatility of prAna’s clothing is what appeals to me most. It really fits my lifestyle since I work from home and am a wife and mother of 5. Being able to change the look of an outfit quickly with a few accessories, is something that I need to be able to do, and prAna gives me the pieces I need to do that.

Whether my day’s adventures lead me on a hike in the mountains with my family, scouring our local farmer’s market for the best produce or meeting with the marketing agent of a company I am working with, my prAna clothing fits me and whatever I am doing perfectly. I think it works so well because all the designers create and test all of prAna’s clothing based on their own love for outdoor activities.

If this all sounds good to you, you can use my exclusive discount code MS15CM to take 15% off your prAna order.

 
As a blogger working with Modern Social Magazine, I was provided with the prAna clothing in order to facilitate my review. As always, my views and words are 100% my own.
