I love being a girl mama, especially when it comes to dressing them! There is nothing better than donning them in frilly dresses and elaborate hair accessories. So when I was presented with the opportunity to review dresses from SweetHoney Clothing, I practically jumped at the chance!

I love companies created by parents for parents! Josh and Holly Smallwood, the creators of Smallwood Home, are some of those amazing parents! It was their love for God and family that gave life to this little dream of theirs. On love and faith they worked side by side, making this little dream flourish into a successful business.

A business that creates all kinds of amazing goodies; everything from home decor, to clothing, and accessories. Smallwood Home has something for everyone! For me, that something is,

{SweetHoney Clothing}

 Why do I love their clothing, you ask!?

Beauty

My oldest proclaimed that her dress was a “princess dress” the second she put it on and I couldn’t agree more! The carefully chosen dress patterns have a sweet and simplistic vintage feel to them. The attention to detail – such as; the trim added to the bottom of each ruffle and around the collar, gives each dress that added frilly touch!

Quality

While the dresses do have a delicate feel to them, it is easy to see that quality was at the forefront when it came to constructing these beauties! Quality was put to the test as my preschooler moved full speed ahead throughout the day. With the delicate feel of the dress I was more than a little nervous it would rip before the day was through. On the contrary! The dress has not only held up through multiple wears, but it is still in pristine condition! SweetHoney Clothing really knows how to make quality items for our busy little bees!

Comfort & Fit

No one understands comfort more than a toddler. That’s why I feel her initial reaction most accurately depicts the comfort level of the dress.

“Mommy it’s not itchy. Oh it’s soft and cozy! It’s my princess dress!”

As any parent knows, you can’t argue with the logic of a toddler. Especially when it comes to clothing or you will never leave the house!

My oldest is wearing a size 3T Whim & Wander Tiny Dancer in Scarlet. She has always been petite. Her age has always corresponded with her size of clothing. So, the 3T fits perfectly!

My 3 month old infant on the other hand is currently in 90% for height and weight. She is currently in a size 6m for clothing. Unfortunately that size was unavailable, so I hoped the 12m in Whim & Wander Juliet in Scarlet would fit. I was nervous it would be too big around the collar and under the arms. But to my surprise, it fit perfectly, with plenty of room to grow!

Twirl Factor

For my daughter, this is by far the most important aspect of any good dress! Luckily, for her, SweetHoney Clothing created this dress with the perfect amount of twirl!

Freshly Picked + Milestones

*This is a sponsored post by Freshly Picked. All opinions are my own.

The last few weeks have been pretty busy around our house lately, as we count down these last few days of summer…

First, we had two road trips planned that were practically back to back with only a few days rest in-between. Which really didn’t provide much rest with a newborn in the house.

It’s amazing how such a tiny human can accumulate so much stuff! I mean packing for two children plus yourself is hard enough, but when one of those children is a newborn, it’s pure exhaustion. You practically have to pack up your entire house! Or at least that’s how it feels anyway, especially when your toddler is running laps around you. At one point I felt like I was in the scene from “Home Alone” where the McCallister family overslept and were running around like crazy trying to get ready and leave.

The following week was filled with so much emotion for this mama, that although there was no packing involved it felt equally as taxing. Our oldest began her first year of preschool and our baby turned one month old… I am the sappy mama who struggles with these beautiful changes. It hit me like a ton of bricks, especially as we were working on changing our daily schedule/routine to fit these new milestones. Somehow I blinked and I became a Mom of a preschooler… Somehow I blinked and a month has gone by since our baby girl was born…

Time never stops moving

Between the road trips and milestones, I feel like we are constantly on the move. It’s as though I am in a constant battle with “time”, trying to slow it down and soak it up all at once. Half the time I feel as though I am just trying to stay caught up and not let everything pass me by.

So, as a busy mama of two little girls, I am always looking for stylish products that make my life a little easier. Insert {Freshly Picked}. When I learned I would have the opportunity to work with this amazing company created by Susan Petersen, I practically fell out of my chair! I was thrilled to review their carefully hand crafted moccs for my girls!

I love companies created by moms for moms! Susan Petersen, the mastermind behind {Freshly Picked}, is one of those amazing moms. She literally built her business from the ground up with her own two hands. Spending an entire summer banging the glass out of windows, so she could take the aluminum window frames to the scrap yard. Earning $200 to begin her business venture, making quality, stylish moccasins for babies everywhere!

A {Freshly Picked} Love Affair

Why do I love Freshly Picked?

1. These moccasins stay on my newborns feet! With our oldest daughter, nothing drove me crazier than socks and shoes constantly falling off her feet! It was for this reason that I quit putting shoes on her all together. My own mother constantly voiced her concern that my daughter might become ill because I stopped putting shoes on her. So during the winter months we had to stick with footy pajamas and thick blankets. For a mama who enjoys styling her baby, this was so difficult for me! This time around I don’t have to worry about any of that! These moccs stay securely on her little feet without me having to constantly fuss with them! So come winter, her feet will stay nice and warm and I won’t have to pack away all those stylish outfits in place of footy pajamas.

2. My toddler can put these on herself! In the current phase of, “I can do it myself!”, these moccs make my life so much easier. My girl loves shoes and putting them on by herself. Which, as any mom can tell you, can slow down the process of getting out the door on time. Especially when my girl is still learning left from right. Luckily, Freshly Picked moccasins do not have a designated right and left shoe. So she can’t go wrong no matter how she puts them on!

3. Style! One of the most enjoyable aspects of having two little girls is getting to dress them! As my friends can tell you, I love to make sure they are decked out from head to toe, with outfits that match their shoes and hair accessories. With all the nostalgia I have been feeling from these current milestones, I knew I had to pair my toddlers Heirloom in Blush and Gold moccs with this “Never Grow Up” t-shirt and gold dot leggings. For my newborn, I love a cute one piece outfit that captures these ever fleeting days of summer with her Heirloom Cream and Gold moccs.

4. Quality! These beautiful moccasins were handcrafted with quality in mind! Not only do these moccasins stay on my girls feet, but they also withstand my energetic toddler. They are truly a perfect addition for her busy feet!

5. My toddler loves them and so does this mama!

Can’t find a pair of shoes to stay on your newborns feet? Need a pair of shoes to foster your toddlers “can do” attitude, while making it out the door on time? Then I definitely recommend Freshly Picked Moccasins!
