Instagram is my favorite place to find new designers/products/stores/obsessions. So I’m sharing a few with you today. This roundup of accounts are all on my personal “followers” list. And even better? They are all local. Check it out below.
Mi Golondrina is a collection of linens and clothing pieces designed locally by Cristina Lynch. The line is a nod to her mother’s Mexican heritage and each product is hand-made in Mexico. My heart skips a beat for the dresses for babies and kids. The baby dress, for instance, is made in Oaxaca and features impressive embroidered details on a chambray material. It’s on my must-have list for our next trip to the beach.
GAIA was founded by Dallas mom and former fashion exec Paula Minnis. All of the products are made in Dallas by resettled refugee women using sustainable materials with the goal of leading the women into self-sufficiency. Products include darling pouches, on-trend fringe bags (I own one and l-o-v-e) and baby and kids products like bibs, booties, diaper pouches, and iPad cases.
For nursery inspiration, we have a few Instagram accounts we love to follow including Hip Hip Hooray/Night and Day. The Snider Plaza store was in our shower roundup a few weeks ago, but they also house their Night and Day interiors division in the back of the store. Even if you’re not a “pink person” you have to admit this luxurious nursery for a baby girl is pretty darn cute.
Of all the expectant Mothers I have worked with while planning a nursery, this Mother knew exactly what she wanted! Yards and yards and yards and yards and yards of ballet pink dupioni silk! It’s as if it’s spun of cotton candy! #tradionalelegantnursery #sugar&spice #welcometotheworldspencer #srf A photo posted by HipHip Hooray (@hiphiphooraynightandday) on
Kimberly Schlegel Whitman can do it all: party planner extraordinaire, hostess with the mostess, writer, editor, and fashion icon. She also happens to be a mother of two. (Where does she get the time? That’s for another post.) Her cute fashion find is just one example of her daily doses of inspiration.
