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!

What's Up, City Kid?! - Graffiti + Flip Books

Screen Shot 2015-01-23 at 5.51.46 PM

There is art everywhere in NYC. Whether you watch someone singing on the subway, or see a mural on the metal gates of a closed store, there are so many places to get inspired by creativity. We were excited to visit the Museum of the City of New York (MCNY) for their City As Canvas exhibit and learn all about the history of street art, see some really cool pieces from the some of the most prolific graffiti writers and make grafitti flip books. The City As Canvas exhibit is no longer at the museum, but they have so many great exhibits and free craft workshops, you have to check them out!  To see Tristin and Tyler's fun visit, check out the VIDEO HERE or click the image above (if you can't see it below). 

Do your kiddos have a favorite museum for art? Do your kids notice art in places besides the expected? This weekend is the perfect time to head to a museum and see what new (or old) exhibits inspire you -- if you're in New York, I definitely recomment MCNY! 

HAPPY WEEKEND!

Plants that grow in a cork? Donuts with lavender sugar? We met and interviewed some really innovative small business owners at the Urban Space NYC Holiday Market in Union Square last weekend!  We are huge supporters of small businesses because we love to spread the word about people who are following their dreams like we are. We've been sharing small business stories since the boys were 5 years old! 

Have you heard of Urban Space NYC? They set up shopping markets all around NYC. Just in time for the holidays, we headed to the Union Square market and checked out some really cool gift ideas from some super creative guys and gals! Need last minute holiday gift ideas? Take a look at our video HERE if you can't see it below and get inspired!  Please feel free to share via social media and tag us at @tristinandtyler so we can thank you for doing it!! HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

SONY DSC

We are so excited about the next season of petitePARADE Kids Fashion Week launching this weekend! It's one of the very few times kids shine on the runway in NYC and showcase the hottest fashion for kids. As you know, Tristin and Tyler have participated in some way for the last 4 seasons and each time they have brought something different to the event: they've reported for Time Out New York Kids, New York Family Magazine, and even hosted the shows for two seasons! This year the kiddos are reporting from behind-the-scenes and walking in the Ruum American Kids Wear show! The boys are super excited about the opportunity to strut their stuff! 

If you can't make it to the show, stay tuned for our recap video which will sum it all up for you in a nice petite, fashionable package! Of course, you can always follow along on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook for instant updates.  In the meantime, check out this fun video to celebrate the start of the parade! Happy Weekend! 

Tristin + Tyler's Threads: Ruum Fall Favorites

SONY DSC

Hello, Fall! Surprisingly, I'm actually ready for fall. I love the crisp temperatures, wearing slightly more layers and snuggling up in a down blanket at night. For us, fall wear is all about having a few key items that the boys can easily throw on in the morning. What's essential? A jean jacket and a plaid shirt that matches with everything. I love this dark denim jacket from Ruum because it goes with just about anything, and it has a zipper for extra warmth. Lately, the trend is rocking sweatpants with everything from graphic tees to poplins, and the boys love it so Tyler is wearing sweatpants with the jacket, and the plaid shirt..see what I mean? So easy and cool. After all, comfort is all boys really care about! Plaid shirts are great for buttoning up to the top, or leaving open with a graphic tee under. What are your fall favorites? Do you get something every year that the kids just have to have?

Back to Cool Style Guide 2014

SONY DSC

I know some of your littles are already back in school so we're a little late (sorry!) -- but since Tristin + Tyler don't start till early September, we've put together a BACK TO COOL STYLE GUIDE to give you our list of fashion must-haves for back to school! We worked with some of our favorite brands to bring you a shoppable mini-magazine full of style ideas. What do I mean by "shoppable"? Well, pretty much every image allows you to click it and go directly to where you can buy it online -- cool huh!? If you're interested in something that doesn't have a link, just leave a comment below and I will get back to you on where you can find it.  It's taken weeks to put this together with me shooting all the images, sourcing the style finds and working around the schedules of our fab models, Madison, Brianna and T&T -- but it was so worth it! Thanks to all who helped get this together! Are you ready?? Click HERE or the image below to check it out! We hope you enjoy!

Let us know what you think in the comments below and HAPPY NEW SCHOOL YEAR

What's Cool: Vacation

SONY DSC

The weekend of the fourth was probably the most relaxing 4th I've had in years. The boys are older, the weather was perfect and I literally didn't do much other than sit by the pool and enjoy the boys' energy. Even hubs was in the pool, playing, doing laps and more. Me? I just sat back on my lounge chair and watched. I did go in the pool a few times, but literally just to cool off. No real swimming this year, just relaxing, pondering. We were lounging by the pool until it closed every night for 3 nights -- sometimes doing nothing is just what the doctor ordered. Just relaxing, pondering. The only problem is when I went back to work on Tuesday, I was more tired than I usually am when I'm running around -- go figure! How was your fourth? Busy? Hectic? Slow and relaxing? xx
