Tristin + Tyler's Kicks: Two Ways to Wear Copper Nike Lil Posite Sneakers

The best part about the Nike Lil Posite sneakers is that they pretty much last FOREVER. The boys can pretty much do anything and the hard shell on the outside doesn't get damaged. The copper version just came out last week, and we had to get them.  Here are two ways to style them so they stand out on your kiddo.

DON'T MATCH - It's easy to want to try and match the copper with something, but the best way to really make the sneakers stand out is with muted colors. Tristin is rocking a jumper and a cool painted button down both from Zara.

ACCENT POP - For Tyler, we still didn't quite match but we added a tee with copper and glasses in rose gold to bring out the sneakers. I love mixing patterns, so I threw in camo pants from Zara and a polka dot button down just to mix it all up.

What do you think about making the accessory pop and muting down the clothing or mixing up patterns?

If you walk the streets of New York City, especially Brooklyn, you've probably seen the work of this cool crochet expert.  Some call her craft "yarn bombing" or "yarn graffitti," but whatever you want to call it, we love the fact that creatives are making the city a little more colorful with street art made with yarn.

In the latest episode of Tristin + Tyler's webseries What's Up, City Kid?! (yes, a bunch of new episodes coming your way this Spring!!), we meet London Kaye, a dancer turned street artist who has made creations all over New York City just for fun, and even for brands like Gap + Starbucks!  Here's a peek at the episode, but make sure to watch when it on YouTube when it launches later this week! :)

Stay tuned!

Tristin + Tyler's Kicks: Spring Jordans

Finally the weather is warming up a bit, and just in time for Spring and Easter, our friends at Kids Foot Locker sent us the Still Blue Air Jordan 6 (left) and the Air Jordan 4 "Motorsports" (right) sneakers which released this Saturday. Love how easy both pairs of sneakers can go with neutrals or be that pop of color for an otherwise simple outfit!  Check out the picks below and let us know what you think! Will your kids be wearing sneakers this Easter? Which Jordans do you like the best?

Tristin + Tyler's Threads: Vingino Coats

We love finding brands that have great denim and basics for boys. Let me introduce you to Vingino,  an italian brand that is all about denim, and great classic pieces for boys and girls. Yes, Spring is officially "here" but it doesn't feel like it outside so the boys were happy to pull out these Vingino jackets cause they look good, and are super warm. Love the pop of color on Tristin's jacket and the simple details on Tyler's parka. Visit Vingino here and check out what's new for Spring and let us know what you think!

You may have noticed that in addition to styling the boys' clothing, I'm starting to really get into sneakers. Yep, you'll see a lot more features on the latest and greatest "kicks" that everyone is going crazy about in the sneaker world.  For this shoot it was nice that Tristin didn't have to wear a big coat -- the weather was amazing this weekend -- and I loved to mix and match textures with the jacket, denim and plaid shirt.

When I was in high school I remember how important the right sneaker was, and now that craze it TOTALLY back.  This week it's all about the hottest kicks for us! First up, check out these Jorden 6 Retro All Stars! They just came out last Friday. When they hit the light it's kind of two-toned which I love.  Yes, a little expensive ($180) for younger kids, but for an older kid who is going to work hard not to mess them up (like my boyz), it's a good investment as Jordans generally last a long time (just go a half size bigger so they grow into it!).

Are you into sneakers? What about your kids? Check out more images below and let us know what you think of these and the outfit!

Fall in Love: Valentine's Day with H&M

It's almost Valentines Day and although the boys are never really into it, I'm always ALL about it so I always try and partner with a fun brand for a VDAY-themed photo shoot. This time I wanted outfits that speak to each kids' personalities -- and that brand has to have stylish and durable pieces. So H&M was the perfect choice!

We brought in our friend Zia and little cousin Madison to model with the boys for this one. Love that H&M has started creating really great suiting (Tris loves it) and trendy plaids for boys (Tyler loves plaid and the longer shirt length - so trendy), and I can never get enough faux animal print + florals for girls!

What are your favorite trends for guys and gals? Do you ever buy VDAY-themed pieces? Check out the rest of the images below and make sure to peek at H&M Kids here!
