Fall Fashion 2013 ~ Darby’s & Bootights

Fall Fashion ~ Darby's & Bootights
Legalese Nonsense: knowing how much I love boots, I couldn’t say yes fast enough when I was offered to review tights & knee highs specifically made for them. All modelesque poses, new hair cuts & coloring, and massive amounts of boots are my own.

Fall Fashion 2013

I can hardly believe it but the end of the month is sneaking up super fast and with it comes back to school and that means one thing for sure–Fall is going to be here faster than I can possibly imagine! While there are many wonderful things about Summer, down here in Texas my favorite seasons are Spring and Fall. Now only do they bring much appreciated relief from the intense heat and humidity, they also allow for a little more *fun* and variety when it comes to fashion–bye bye shorts, tank tops, and flip flops; hello jackets, sweaters, long sleeves, and new shoes! Fall Fashion 2013!

Now, I have a confession to make. I’m really not much of a shoe gal. In fact it hasn’t been until the past several years that I’ve learned to appreciate the beauty of a good set of heels or a pair of Mary Jane’s. I do, however, LOVE boots. And when I say I love boots I mean….

Fall Wardrobe Update with Cookies Kids

Here in Texas fall has finally arrived and I’m super happy! The 96 degree days we had when we first moved down here made me feel like I was about to melt away! Since the “cool” weather here has been into the 60s & 70s I knew that while I needed to switch out the kids  summer shorts their Boston fall gear would be too thick and warm for what we need here.

Girl and Puppy

While I was looking through the kiddos wardrobes it was clear that the thing that we needed the most was pants for Amber-all of hers had holes in the knees-as you can see above!

When I go shopping I always try to get the best deal possible-whether online or in store. I headed over to Cookies Kids because I’d seen from some of my other blogging friends that they have absolutely adorable Kids Clothes for great prices! You can view my entire fun shopping experience!

Cookies Kids Clearance

Tyler needed some new shirts as he’s starting to outgrow some of his-so I hit up the Clearance Section first to see what I could find. I found this adorable t-shirt right off the bat for only $1.89 WOW! I was instantly sold on this website and it is sure to become one of my go-to places for shopping from now on! Cookies Kids have 7 stores in the NYC area in Bronx, Brooklyn and Jamaica as well as online at CookiesKids.com – which is where I’ll be shopping! 

One of my Online Shopping Tips is to make sure you’re getting the correct size by paying close attention to the sizing charts. This is just as true for kids as it is for adults! I loved the handy little Alva Kids icon by the size option, once you click on an article of clothing. It helps you be able to tell what size your child wears in that particular item kids-super handy.

Cookies Kids Shopping Haul

I got so excited when my shopping haul arrived in the mail! My mother-in-law oohhed and awwed when I pulled my goodies out of the envelope. She couldn’t believe I got so many high quality pieces all for $34! I ended up with 2 shirts for Tyler, 2 leggings for Amber, and a full outfit for Amber.

Tyler is very much into “Thomas the Train” right now-and he thinks that *every* train is Thomas. So when I saw this totally darling Levi’s “Pioneers Railroad” T-Shirt I knew I had to get it! It is soooo soft and he went nuts when he saw it!

Mommy Tip: Buy one size too big when buying toddler shirts–they look fine a little big and it will double the time your kiddo can wear it for!

Coney Isle “Sparkle Anchor” 2-Piece Outfit

This Coney Isle “Sparkle Anchor” 2-Piece Outfit is now my favorite one of Amber’s! It’s so dressy and comfy all rolled into one-and I love the unique anchor and sailor vibe it has! Bob might be out of the Coast Guard now but our roots run deep-in my heart I’ll always be a Coastie Wife.

Girl Anchor Shirt

Mommy Tip: Transition a summer dress through fall by adding a fun, warm pair of Cherry Stix “Sparkle Knit” Leggings
