Shopping Guide:


Comfort for kids is a priority when traveling, so I like to choose clothing made out of soft material.  The fleece wrap cardigan [1] from J.Crew Factory is an easy piece to layer on and the ribbon makes it sweet.  Mia loves leggings and will wear them everyday if she could, stripes serve as a neutral piece in both of our closets and go well with mixing other patterns, Tea Collection [2] makes long lasting pairs.  In case she gets chilly at the airport or on the plane, this infinity scarf by Tucker + Tate will keep her warm and I just love the horse print.  Believe it or not good fitting t-shirts are not easy to find, I recently discovered the label Ever/After [3], which make basics for the whole family  in cool cuts and colors.  Slip on sneakers are no fuss while at the airport and this iconic pair by French label Bensimon [5] will look darling with dresses or pants.  I like this interactive coloring book,  “My Wonderful World of Fashion,” [6] for it’s cute illustrations you can color and it also has fun activities to try.  Girls’ seem to like mini versions of things and these colored pencils [9] are just that and come in a small container.  We try to choose healthy snacks when available, Z Bars [7] and Odwalla juices [10] are favorites in our family.  Kids seem to get excited over having their own headphones [8] and who can resist childhood classic, Hello Kitty.  This ride on suitcase from Melissa & Doug (Steph put me on to them a few years ago) [11] is so fun for kids at the airport, Mia is too big to ride on it now, but she still uses it as her carry on and it holds a special place in her heart.
