I’m going to level with you guys. Living in the country is really amazing most of the time, except when it’s not. Lately one of my biggest irritations with our rural living situation is the lack of shopping. For as little as I care about my own wardrobe it’s shocking to me how much I care about stocking my kids’ closets. I want them to have cute things, I want to show their personalities in their appearance, I want them to shine everyday (Too far? Yeah, too far. Look, I just want them to not look like hobos or be exact replicas of every other kid in town).
One of my latest obsessions is scouring the web for online stores that sell children’s clothes and accessories. By way of my awesome friend Jenny I found Girls Crochet Headbands. The lovely folks over there sent me some of the products for Katelyn to try so if you’ll indulge me a few photos…
My Kate is not blessed with a head full of hair so hair accessories of any kind have been tricky for us to say the least. I love this little curly bow because it doesn’t overwhelm her wee head and it stayed really well in her thin hair. (Bow Tie 3″ Zebra – $1.50)
I can’t even stand how animated she is about a simple yawn. I love this little flower clip and headband because again, they held well in her hair and the sizing was just right. Normally you see these clips on thicker crochet headbands but for whatever reason Katelyn always rips those off after 5 seconds but this soft elastic headband didn’t seem to bother her at all. (Black Elastic Headband – $0.50 Sweetheart Flower Clip White/Hot Pink – $1.79)
Katelyn loved this little kufi hat, I wasn’t as wild about it but perhaps it would look better if she had longer hair. I am assuming the hat is quite comfortable as she has refused to take it off since discovering it. I adore the zebra striped flower clip and plan to use it alone and with the elastic headband. (Kufi Hat Hot Pink – $2.50 Crystal Daisy Zebra – $1.25)
This set was my absolute favorite out of everything. We are big football fans in this house and we always dress accordingly for Game Day. It’s hard to see but the flower clip isn’t just made in Green Bay Packers colors but there is a little football charm in the middle. I will definitely be having one made to go with her apparel for college games. (The full size flowers were comically large on her little head, I will likely stick to the small and medium sized flowers from now on) (Football Leg Warmers – $3.99 Gerber Daisy NFL Packers – $2.98)
This picture is here simply because it makes me so insanely happy to look at. I mean, c’mon, that’s a cute kid ammirite?
Chase is never one to be left out so I let him try on the leg warmers on his arms. I actually think this is really cute for older kids.
This orange and black flower clip (shown on the black elastic headband) has an adorable pumpkin charm in the middle. (Halloween Flower Clip Black/Orange – $2.98)
Because Chase loves ALL things Halloween he insisted on modeling the pumpkin flower for me.

One final thought… I would like the record to show that the above are the finest sampling from my photo shoots with my children. 90% of the photos I took ended up looking something like this. In other words, it was toddler mayhem up in here.
