Are Scrunchies Back?

What's old is new again. When I was a girl the only things I knew how to sew were pillows and
hair scrunchies.  I loved to sew, so I had quite the collection of scrunchies. I never expected these hair ties to make a comeback, but we are starting to see them again today.

When I think of scrunchies, I immediately imagine the side pony tails of Stephanie Tanner!

But... there are ways you can wear a scrunchie and make it feel a little more modern and current. has 10 scrunchie styles that won't make you feel stuck in the 90's

What do you think?  Could you rock a scrunchie again?

Spring Hippie Style

Spring is here! It's festival season! I was lucky enough to get to attend Coachella last year. I haven't seen so much hippie fashion in my entire life. Everywhere I turned I saw flower crowns, fringe, moccs, floral patterns, and head wraps. Festival fashion is a category all of it's own. Can't make it to a festival this year? Don't worry, me neither. You can still rock hippie festival fashion, and your little one can too!

We love the hippie style so much, we did an entire hippie themed shoot for our Color Me Happy collection coming to in May. Here are a few of our favorite shots. Photo Credit: Heather Telford Photography

The Crimping Comeback

Have you heard? Crimping your hair is cool again! I am actually quite thrilled with this trend making a comeback.

Crimping Tip: Don't crimp your entire head of hair. Crimp random pieces/chunks of hair.

Cosmopolitan Magazine (March 2015) says, "Rather than a head full of crimps, rock a few random strips to create mixed texture. Braid sections around your face and run a flatiron over each. Once, cool, shake them loose and smooth with styling cream."

Here are some of our favorite crimped looks:

Celebrities who have pulled out the crimper:

Taylor Joelle rocks the crimped look!

Taylor's Top and Skirt are from our Wild Garden Collection

Where to buy a crimper?

We suggest the Bed Head Brand Crimper

Trend Alert: Denim Jumpsuit

Denim, denim, denim! It's everywhere. Earlier this month we talked all about the denim shirt dress. Today, it's all about the denim jumpsuit. As you can see in the picture above, celebrities love it! We love it too because its hip, comfortable and easy to wear.

Here are our 2 favorite finds for kids:

Cohen's look is from Kardashian Kids

For Taylor, we thought it would be fun to do a celebrity style hack! 

Taylor's denim jumpsuit is from Gap
Yellow accessories add a pop of color that makes this look really stand out.
