As the proud mama of 2 toddlers, I love being able to dress my kids up all cute, and I get excited when I find new products that allow me to do just that. (I have a teen, too, but sadly, he is way past the stage of letting his mother pick out his wardrobe.)
If you're anything like me, you love finding fun, unique clothing and accessories for your little ones. My kids have huge wardrobes that consist of everything from vintage inspired clothing to punk-rock styled gear, as well as a ton of great shoes, hats and even baby legwarmers in trendy colors and prints.
I adore fashion, and love passing this love on to my kids. My diva...oops, I mean daughter Sophie especially. She loves picking out her own outfits, and she is always very proud of herself for coming up with new and exciting looks. Or rather odd ones like you see to the left. But apparently, Sophie thinks that a wool winter hat is a perfectly chic indoor accessory.
So naturally, I was thrilled when I discovered a brand new line of children's shoes from a company called Bailey Berry. Not only are these shoes absolutely adorable, they're also customizable! That's right, you can change up the look of your kids shoes by changing the straps! Each pair of BB Stars, Bailey Berry's exclusive line of shoes, comes with 2 sets of straps. They've got fun designs on both sides, so you get a total of 4 different looks out of each pair of shoes. Unless, of course, you choose to switch them up a bit. Then you'll get more looks! Mix, match...It doesn't matter! Bailey Berry is all about making fashion fun for little ones.
BB Stars come in a nice variety of colors and sizes, most of which are wonderfully unisex. This is a huge plus for me since I have both a little boy and a little girl, not too far apart in age!
Check out how stinkin' cute these shoes are:
How awesome are these shoes?! Love at first sight, right? Well here's a bit more about Bailey Berry and their inspirations for this great new line of children's footwear:
"Founded in 2010, the Bailey Berry™ brand is the culmination of a two year mission to create the perfect kids' shoes. Bailey Berry™ is inspired by the vibrant environments of Manhattan, the Hamptons and the Adirondacks. Not wanting to sacrifice fashion for function BB STARS™ are fun and built to the highest quality standards."
The awesome folks at Bailey Berry sent me a couple of pairs of their fabulous BB Stars to try on Sophie and Xander. Sophie received this oh-so-precious pink pair, which has feminine appeal both on the shoes themselves as well as on the straps. This is the pair you want to get if you have a girly-girl like mine!
Xander received his BB Stars in Navy. They also come with fun straps with stars in different colors as well as a nice, patriotic design! Xander helped choose his favorite look, and as you can see, it doesn't match. That doesn't matter though, because my little man is showing his own personal style, unconventional as it is!
Here are the additional straps and their designs. Please note, I am showing the front and reverse of both sets. These are 2 sets of straps, not 4! Xander's extra straps are to the left and Sophie's are to the right. I should add that changing the straps is simple and only takes a few seconds. All you do is pop them off and then fit them right back on over a circular "button" looking feature on the shoe. The straps have some stretch to them, so these fit very securely and will not come loose.
As you can probably tell, Sophie and Xander are both totally stoked to be the proud owners of BB Stars by Bailey Berry. The shoes are so stylish and unique, and they are also very well made and comfortable to wear. While they wouldn't do well in the Ohio snow, they're definitely suitable for colder weather with some nice thick socks. They're also absolutely perfect for summer weather, too, since they allow stinky, sweaty little feet to breathe.
