Smart Knit Kids Seamless Sensitivity Socks {Review & Giveaway}

HeaderMain

P1080206

Mom created company, Smart Knit Kids socks is a favorite in our home!
Anytime we look to clothe our feet their socks are always a first pick!

What are some reasons why we love these socks so much? Well first, they are seamless and offered in a variety of colors and styles. Smart Knits are started at the toe and worked up toward the ankle, this process insures a 100% seamless sock. Since it’s launch in 2003, Smart Knits Kids continues to grow and find new markets. Super Soft material and seam free design make it the most comfortable kids sock on the market.

Out of the generosity Smart Knit Kids my son some of these socks to enjoy!  He likes them very much and he hasn’t been bugged by them at all! He tends to have pretty sensitive skin and scratches where most seams or tags touch his body but not with these at all! Total winners for any child that may have sensory or skin irritations!

These socks come in several styles which include ankle, crew,and knee-high. Ranging in sizes from 1-4 toddler all the way up to a girls/boys size 5-8. The vast selection of colors ensure a pair to suit everyone child’s taste and personality!

I’m so impressed with Smart Knit Kids socks I was sent! I love that each pair of these socks have a non-binding Halo Top that fits comfortably without slipping down my the leg! Most socks usually have those elastic bands at the top that wear out rather quickly and can sometimes be to tight leaving a mark on your child’s leg but not these!

Their is no heel on these socks so I don’t have to worry about running to the store so soon just to get socks that fit. Clearly as a parent I’ve learned that children’s feet grow exceptionally quickly. High Tech fibers that wick are added that helps prevent moisture as well as working to keep your children’s feet dry, preventing stinky feet.

I recommend the socks to all, I believe your children will thank you for them! Each pair retails for around $6.95 or less! To find out where you can purchase these, visit http://www.smartknitkids.com/

Win it!-

I stumbled across an awesome company early this year that I’m excited to share about called Twice! This company offers stylish second hand name brand apparel at 70-90% off original retail prices! I’m pleased to say that because of Twice I’ve been able to get out with the old and in with the new (even though second hand), totally revamping my wardrobe with great name brand apparel for a prices I can easily afford compared to buying at full price.

I’ve made 3 orders to date in the past two months with Twice and have been 100% satisfied with all of my purchases. An example of my savings to talk about is an outfit I picked out recently for a date out with husband which was a pair of Mid-Rise Black Skinny Jeans by Banana Republic and a Teal Dreamweight Cotton Tank Top by Express. If I purchased at the normal retail price, the outfit I chose would have cost me about $90.o0 but with Twice, the outfit only cost me $25.00 saving me 65.00 ! And that savings is something to totally brag about knowing that I got top brand clothing that will last and looks great! It’s about time this mom updated her wardrobe too!

Have I convinced you to check them out yet? Some other reasons I am happy with Twice is because they have a very nice selection of clothes and navigating the site and searching for apparel is simple to do! You can search by color, style, cut, and brand (Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, Nordstrom, Express, J. Crew, and more!). If you wonder if something might not fit, be relieved that all the measurements for each items are listed with right along with it and if it comes to it, returning an item is free!

Twice offers professional photographs of all items, there are all sorts of clothing sizes from xxs and up, sizing descriptions as well as care instruction on each item, same-day shipping, 30 day full refunds, and excellent 24-hour customer service. Also, if you’re cleaning out your closet, you can send in your clothing ( they pay shipping), and they buy upfront!

If you join Twice through my link you’ll get $10.00 of your first order and if you invite your friends, and you’ll get a credit to your own account of $10 when each friend makes their first purchase (up to a max of $100). Shipping is Free on orders over $49 ($5 otherwise) and free 30-day returns.

All the items pictured in my post were purchased from Twice! Again I’m very pleased with everything and highly recommend this great company. I’m looking forward to making another order soon! Also as you can see there are clothes for any and every season available for purchase!

I highly recommend following Twice on Facebook and reading their blog! I a few weeks ago joined them on a live Friday Fashion chat and got some great advice on what types of clothes are in and what would flatter my skin tone and body type the best! Bonus was they offered all participates a 15% off coupon code too! So you totally want to be in know!

Review: Liv & Lily Boutique

Liv and Lily is a luxury brand of children’s accessories that has brought premium fabrics together with sophisticated designs to create a line as stylish as it is timeless. Inspired by playful and traditional elements along with style icons, our vision is a line that reflects a more enduring approach to accessorizing your family.

We’ve been talking about Autumn around here for several weeks. And this hair accessory for my daughter from Liv and Lily, I believe will be our favorite accessory for the season. It’s warm bright yet subtle orange hues and tones reminds me of the leaves changing colors or of an evening sunset. The raw silk rosettes really look stunning in my opinion.

Though, if orange isn’t quite the little girl in your life’s color, you can fully customize many of the hair clips, headbands or bows at Liv and Lily to suit your personal preferences.

Liv and Lily also carries accessories for boys too. I have my eye on the collection of fedoras for my little guy! The houndstooth patterns and plaid are always fun to give boys a little extra style. And what’s neat too is that there are even things for mom at this boutique too.

I highly recommend checking out this boutique, especially if you have a special photo shoot for back to school or the Autumn season in general coming up. I promise, they’ve got the the most stylish accessories for anytime of the year!
