Drape + Dapper »


Sometimes I come across things that I completely fall in love with and these bloomers….i mean….they are beyond fabulous.  Am i right?!?!  Anything that comes with suspenders is a complete win in my book. 🙂  But wait…lets pause for a minute to look at Janies chunky little toddler legs.  She can never grow up!    This Tribe of Three creates these beauties and is always adding more styles that you will swoon over!  I took my girls out for a quick little shoot to showcase this amazing brand.

Find them HERE (new styles coming soon…so check back often!!)

We’ve started to see the dreaded back to school ads, catalogs and store displays emerging.  What the what?!  It’s only July and we are still in warm-weather mode, hoping for an endless summer!  We wrangled our kiddos for some back yard fun in the sun.  These adorable  little minions, sipped on some ‘mock’tails, slurped some popsicles + did some sprinkler action (not the dance move kind).

Although this post may have seemed more fitting in early summer, we thought it would be a good reminder to snag those end-of-season summer sales.  Most of these items are still avail at deep discounts or we linked similar items. We’re thrifty moms (most of the time) so while you shop for back to school add some summer sales to your basket for next year.

Bunny rabbits and hares everywhere! Even though Easter is fast approaching, I don’t think it is coincidence that the bunny  theme is trending (although, it wasn’t coincidence that we waited to do this post until the week of Easter). We’ve been seeing these little woodland creatures popping up (no pun intended) in children’s decor, fashion and homewares.  We curated our favorite finds from big shoppes and little shoppes alike and even found some hare wears to get YOU in on the trend (the hare wallpaper – sigh!).

Don’t forget to check out our instagram account @drapeanddapper for easy links to all the cute little shoppes and daily doses of inspiration. We’ve discovered so many cute brands and unique items on instagram and love supporting small  brands and businesses.
