We have had a pretty mild summer here in Tennessee and I’m thankful!  However the cooler nights we’ve had lately have made me ready for Fall!  I’m looking forward to the changing leaves, pumpkins, and fall festivals.  As we approach September, it’s also time to start thinking about switching out the kids clothing and getting ready for the cooler temps.  I was so excited to check out the  Fall line from Florsheim Kids!  It seems like the selection for girls’ clothing and shoes is huge compared to the boys’ section.  So I appreciate that Florsheim is dedicated just to my little men!  I let my 3 youngest pick out the shoes they’d like.  My 6-year-old chose the Valco Moc Toe Jr in Olive Camouflage.  I just had to smile because these are SO him!

These leather upper boots are super cute and are have a cool camo canvas patch on the sides.  Orange is N’s favorite color so he loved the bright orange laces.  They are so well made and have a lot of personality.  I like that they are  dressier than sneakers but they’re fun at the same time.  This means my son wants to wear them.  In fact, he didn’t want to take them off!  One of the things I love most about Florsheim shoes is how lightweight they are.  My kids have had shoes in the past that were cute but SO heavy.  They didn’t like wearing them so they just sat in the closet. These boots are light, flexible and breathable (great since my boys inherited my hubby’s sweat feet!).

My 8-year-old chose the Quinlan Jr in orange.

These boots are made from genuine suede and feature a fun orange rubber sole.  I appreciate the little details in Florsheim shoes, like the leather lining along the top of the boot and the fun plaid lining.  These are what sets Florsheim apart in my opinion.  Again, they are super lightweight and comfortable.  They even work for climbing trees!

My 5-year-old chose the Pine Slip Jr. in stone.

These leather uppers are perfect for my littlest guy! They also feature the breathable, moisture-wicking Suedetec lining and I love that he can put them on by himself.  The two red pull straps and elastic on each side make it easy for him to slip his little feet in and out.  I like that these shoes can be casual or dressy.  With a family of eight, you can imagine how cluttered our hall closet gets.  I love shoes that can pull double duty!  They boys all love their shoes and are excited to wear them!

I am proud to be a Florsheim Certified Reviewer and Brand Ambassador.  I love sharing items that I truly love and believe in.  This is definitely the case with Florsheim.  We have never been disappointed in any of the shoes we have received from them.  They are high quality and have held up really well.  We have been able to pass down outgrown pairs to the younger boys and they still look and wear great!  My kids always look forward to picking out new pairs because they offer such stylish and fun styles.  You can see their entire selection at www.Florsheim.com/kids.

I had the pleasure of working with Baby Beau & Belle last year when I reviewed a beautiful holiday dress for Little Miss.  They offer stunning christening gowns and special occasion wear for babies.  I was truly impressed with the quality and beauty of the outfit I received so I was thrilled to work with them again, this time on a review of one of their sun dresses.

I was sent the Rose Garden Sun Dress.  Designed in house and available only on Babybeauandbelle.com and Christeninggowns.com, this set includes a 100% cotton, light pink dress, flowered bloomers and a matching headband.  It was so pretty!  The colors and style are perfect for spring!  I loved the little details like the shell buttons at the bottom of the straps and on the leg openings of the bloomers.

I put the outfit on Little Miss and told her to go show daddy her new outfit.  She went running in and stood in front of him patting her belly.  He said she looked beautiful and I agreed!  Later, we went for a walk and my neighbor commented on how cute she looked.

The outfit is so soft and is perfect for warm weather.  The elastic is soft as well so it’s not tight around her chest or tummy.  This will be the dress I put her in for her pictures with the Easter Bunny and the one she wears for our church’s egg hunt.  Once again I am thoroughly impressed with the beauty and quality provided by Baby Beau & Belle.

Every outfit from Baby Beau & Belle is handmade in the USA and they are truly luxurious!  Whether you’re looking for a pretty summer dress, or a christening gown or special occasion outfit, Baby Belle and Beau has you covered! Make sure to connect with them on Facebook to see more of their stunning outfits!

One lucky reader will win a $25 credit to either Baby Beau & Belle!

If your kids are like mine then they grow each summer.  Then the clothing you thought they would be wearing no longer fits and you head out to buy some much needed back to school clothing.  One place we love to shop for our kids is P.S. by Aeropostale.  If you recall, I did a review of their clothing earlier this year.   You can read my full P.S. by Aeropostale review here and see some photos of our kids in their clothing.  Before posting this giveaway I visited their website to browse the new arrivals and it looks like P.S. by Aeropostale is keeping their clothing fashionable and modest!  I saw several items that our girls would love.  Their jeans were what really caught my eye as well as some of the scotty dog line up!

Their clothing starts at size 4 so our toddler son is almost big enough for their line.  And for those of you with kids in uniforms…they offer a full line of uniform clothing!
