As a mother of two young girls, I am constantly amazed at all the fabulous options out there for their clothes, shoes, accessories, etc! I spend waaaayyyyyy more money on them than I do myself ("Oh, they would look so cute in this!") It's addictive! Why can't I just walk into Target and leave with the things I actually NEED, not the 47 cute bathing suits and sundresses that magically appear in my cart! And don't even get me started on when the Mini Boden catalog arrives - DELICIOUS!
Well, I have some exciting news to share and a new obsession to add to my "MUST HAVE" list: My partner Skirt Sports has just launched a new girls line of athletic apparel!!!!! YOU HAVE GOT TO CHECK IT OUT!!! They sent me some products to try out (see photos below of my cuties!) and the dresses are adorable, made really well, and the colors are fantastic. My daughters have been wearing them to the pool as coverups too! Our other model was Samantha - my colleague Lorraine's daughter - and the "skort" rocked! Our girls want to run, jump, and play - they don't want to worry about their undies showing so they all LOVED the shorts underneath. I've also washed both the dresses and skirts several times and they come out perfect. I couldn't deal with any handwashing or special attention needed! NO TIME FOR THAT! While on the pricey side compared to what you can find at Target, the saying goes: "You get what you pay for". It's so true. See for yourself!
This new product launch has come at a very opportune and special time as well - Nicole DeBoom, CEO and Founder of Skirt Sports, and her husband Tim, just announced they are expecting their first baby in December! How cute is that Little SKIRT gonna be?!?!?!? Welcome to the wonderful and crazy world of the working CEO Mom Nicole! Fasten your seat belt!
I wish you and the rest of the luscious Skirt Sports team, all the best with this new girls line! It rocks and I can't wait to see what comes next!
More importantly, Nicole, I wish you and Tim all the best with your other new "girl line". Yes, it's my vote that I think it's a girl! To read all about Nicole's pregnancy journey while juggling life as an athlete, CEO, wife, and SKIRT visionary - when what you really want to do is hurl or take a nap - visit her blog! I am especially fond of the entry, "Butt, Boobs, and Belly"
Go forth and be chic girls in your new little skirts!
With Love From Me to Hue,
Mattie chillin' on the swing!
Lizzie climbing up the SKIRT ladder!
Don't mess with Samantha in her SKIRT!
