I admit, I don’t keep up with fashion like I used to. But I have heard that cable & quilt detailing is in and they are fashion faves – especially for the little ones. HALO makes cable look, oh, so cute while Michael Kors takes on the quilt trend effortlessly!

Cable: HALO SleepSack Cable Knit Wearable Blanket

HALO has merged the classic cable sweater knit and safe sleep with their newest SleepSack! Bugsy seems to love his and I just love the cable knit detailing. He is notorious for kicking while he settles to sleep. Since the SleepSack is essentially a wearable blanket, he can still keep snuggled and warm when he naps. And thanks to the sleeveless design, he doesn’t get *too* hot. Be it in the bassinet during the day or in our family bed at night, he is warm and comfortable while he rests.

Another reason to love HALO is their Safer Way to Sleep Initiative:

Today, almost 1,000 hospital nurseries, nationwide in all 50 states and in Canada, are using HALO® SleepSack® Swaddles instead of blankets through the HALO® Safer Way to Sleep Initiative – modeling safe sleep practices to new parents right from their child’s first day of life.

That is 1.5 million births getting first-hand, in-hospital experience with the HALO SleepSack Swaddle and safe sleep practices! Leading health organizations agree that modeling proper baby care in the hospital is the single biggest influence on how parents care for their baby at home.

I think the Safer Way to Sleep Initiative is a wonderful thing. While I did not have Bugsy at a hospital, I do wish I stashed a HALO SleepSack in with my home birth kit and newborn baby items. He sleeps so soundly in his, I can only imagine how he would have loved having one from day one!

The HALO SleepSack Cable Knit Wearable Blanket comes in blue, pink, and cream and can be purchased at buybuybaby.com for $34.99. There are two generous sizes available – small {10-18 lbs} and medium {16-24 lbs}.

Quilt: MICHAEL Michael Kors Faye Ballet

My daughter loves shoes. Almost as much as I do. So when I handed her a new pair of Faye ballet flats from MICHAEL Michael Kors, she jumped for joy. Literally. Which, by the way, seems to be her method for breaking in new shoes…

It’s true. She loves them because she can jump in them. I love them because she can easily slip them on and off. She loves the metallic color. I love the quilted detail. She loves how comfy they are. I love the durable rubber outsole so she isn’t slipping around in Washington’s typical rainy weather. The Faye ballet is the perfect blend of detail, style, and functionality that has us both singing its praises.
