Sorry! It’s been a few weeks since I’ve done a Friday Fresh Picks post. It seems the holidays just show up at your door like BAM! and then it’s crazyville until the big day. But I didn’t want another Friday going by without sharing some of my favorite things from the week.
I’m shaking things up a bit and featuring a product I’m crushing on right now and one of my boys’ favorite brands of clothing.
Favorite Shoe (TOMS): I recently received a pair of TOMS (my first pair ever!) from the TOMS and National Geographic Big Cats Collection. This is no ordinary shoe. Each item in the collection features design elements representative of a big cat as well as iconic photography from National Geographic’s image library. Big cats in the wild are disappearing at an alarming rate, and this special collection draws attention to the critical need to protect these majestic creatures for generations to come.
I’m loving my TOMS, aren’t they super cute? They are really comfy and add a bit of spunk to any outfit. Not only do I like wearing them but I feel good putting them on because it’s supporting a great cause.
I grew up with animals and have a precious baby of my own, Lexi. She’s so special and a huge part of our family. That’s why it’s important for me to stand behind this important initiative to help drive awareness and funding for global animal protection.
Favorite Outerwear for Boys (Under Armour via Kids Headquarters): Mama has her shoes and the boys have their Under Armour gear! They have so many UA items; pants, long sleeve shirts, hoodies, tees….you name it, they have it. Right now they both love wearing bright colors as you can see below. My 7 year-old’s shoes are crazy, but hey he likes them and that’s all that matters.
His favorite hoodie is the football hoodie. I literally have to peel him out of it every night. Yeah and he wasn’t too happy that I told him he couldn’t wear shorts in 50 degree weather. What’s up with boys and shorts in wintertime?!
Under Armour is such a great brand and perfect for active kids. The material is comfortable, moves with your body, but also breathes to help keep you cool. It’s functional but stylish at the same time.
And again, it’s all about bright colors. Below my son is wearing their long sleeve neon yellow shirt. This photo is an example of how well the shirt stands out. I always dress my boys in UA bright colored clothing when we are headed to a place that’s crowded. It helps me pick them out of the crowd immediately and saves my mama heart from skipping a beat. If you’ve ever lost your child before (I have) it’s the scariest experience ever and never leaves you. Bottom line, dress them in clothing that will stand out.
If you haven’t checked out my gift guide for boys make sure you do. I feature some of our favorite UA items along with books, games, tech items, and more!
