A Unique New Baby Gift Exclusively at Sophias Style

Sophias Style is proud to be the exclusive carrier of the Bundle ‘n Go, an ingenious new design in baby gear! The Bundle ‘n Go is a stylish and most of all safe way to put baby in her car seat. Traditionally we buckle our children in the car seat over their bulky winter coat, but the Bundle ‘n Go allows you to buckle the car seat straps securely and snugly against the body. Then you simply slip the cape over the straps to keep them warm.

Child Passenger Safety Technician Heather Corley explains:

 “[T]hick winter coats or snowsuits can compromise your child's car seat safety. In order for a baby car seat or toddler booster seat to function properly, the straps need to remain tight against the child's chest. Winter coats and snowsuits make car seat safety difficult because they change the way a child fits into the car seat. When the car seat straps don't fit the child properly, there is a chance the child could be ejected from the car seat.”

The child can even wear the cape out to the car as a winter coat or cover-up, and then you simply switch it to fit over the child once they are buckled safely into the car seat. One size fits 18 months to 4 years, so the kids won’t outgrow it in a season. Designs for boys are also coming soon. Why didn’t anyone think of this sooner?!

If you are looking for baby shower gift ideas, consider the Bundle ‘n Go! Mothers will appreciate your gesture of safety and unique style – this gift is sure to be a hit at the next baby shower! And don’t forget to shop our entire selection of new baby gifts for discount baby blankets, designer diaper bags and boutique newborn baby clothes. It’s all on sale everyday at Sophias Style!


What do you think of the Bundle ‘n Go? We’d love to hear your opinion!

Try A New Kind of Birthday Party Treat This Year

We all know half the fun of a child’s first birthday party is the sugary sweet cake! Unfortunately this can also mean a sugar rush for the little ones as well as frosting all over that brand new 1st birthday dress. This can make for a group of CRANKY toddlers and not much fun for Mom and Dad. Take a turn towards the healthy with your birthday treats this year – we swear, the little birthday guests won’t even notice the difference.

I’m sure you’ve seen all the ads for those edible fruit bouquets made with yummy pineapples, strawberries and other assorted fresh fruit. This option is a great alternative to sugary preservatives found in traditional cakes and cookies, and all the pint-sized party guests will be mesmerized by the bright array of colors! Fresh fruit is wonderfully juicy and sweet, so it will still feel like a special treat for the kids. A dazzling fruit display can also help you decorate for the party – no need for a separate centerpiece for the table!

Another great healthy alternative is sherbet. It looks like ice cream and comes in many festive colors, so it’s perfect for a party! For just a little dash of indulgence, add one of those wafer sticks that come in chocolate, vanilla or strawberry varieties.

Now that the snacks are settled, plan her party attire with Sophias Style girls clothing store. We offer girls birthday dresses as well as baby birthday dresses in many sizes and styles so you’re sure to find a unique look that celebrates her!

A Unique Castle For a Princess | SophiasStyle.com

With warm Spring weather comes a few rainy days here and there. Boy is today one of them – it’s been pouring rain all day here at Sophias Style boutique headquarters! Rain showers force the kids indoors and sure can make it difficult to keep them occupied. Here’s a fun idea that will keep your little princess entertained.

Take an ordinary fold-up card table and use some blankets and your creativity to make her very own indoor princess castle. Place a vase or other cylinder-shaped objects atop the table and then drape them with sheets or blankets to create the castle’s towers. Then add ribbons or flags for decoration. Let her use her imagination to create her own special place!

Once construction is complete, break out the princess kids Halloween costumes and girls dress up clothes for a totally royal playtime look! Sophias Style has tons of dress up accessories and girls Halloween costumes to choose from, all at discount prices. Invite over some playmates and you’ve got a great rainy day activity for the kids!

SophiasStyle.com | A Backpack For Every Type of Kid!

Kids today have so many interests, hobbies and activities that it can be very hard to keep up with it all! As a busy mother of two, I can totally relate. Dance lessons twice a week before school, choir lessons on Saturday mornings, and now T-ball practice on Thursday nights. Yikes! Keeping a large family calendar posted on the refrigerator is what helps us stay on track for the week. I can’t emphasize enough how important it is to be organized – it will really help things go smoothly.

As the kids go to and from all of these various activities, there is always stuff that goes along with it. Song books, tap shoes, baseball gloves, homework – you name it! Luckily Sophias Style kids clothing store has tons of discount kids backpacks that allow my kids to uniquely express their interests and carry all their things. I just bought this dance tote bag for my daughter and she absolutely loves it! There are plenty more girls backpacks, toddler backpacks and also great back to school clothing to go with them - all at Sophias Style.

Find wheeled bookbags that are great for a weekend trip to Grandma's house, snazzy purses for a fun day of shopping or shoulder bags and beach mats for a trip to the seashore! Great savings and hot looks are in the bag at Sophias Style!

Toddler and Baby Summer Activities | Sophias Style

Now that Spring has FINALLY arrived, slip her little feet into a pair of these comfy baby girl shoes and toddler shoes for girls and head outdoors! While a lot of outdoor activities are geared toward older children – kickball, swimming, playing tag – there are still lots of great (and simple!) things you can do to keep your baby or toddler happy and entertained.

Never underestimate the fun of blowing bubbles. Babies and toddlers always seem to be mesmerized by this childhood favorite. Sit down across from your little one and blow bubbles for him or her to chase after or pop. Then give them a turn and teach them how to blow bubbles. You can even find scented soap bubbles for an extra dose of fun!

Of course, those hot summer days call for splishing and splashing in the water. Why should the big kids get to have all the fun swimming? Fill a small baby pool or even just a plastic tub or tote you have lying around with water. Throw in their favorite bath toys and even some summer favorites like a shovel and pail. Slather on the sunscreen and park the pool under a shady tree in the yard. Voila – it’s like bath time only better!

The other day at the checkout in the grocery store the mom in the aisle next to me was bouncing a large rubber yard ball for her toddler boy. His squeals of delight could be heard throughout the entire store! Get a large yard ball and toss it around for your little one. They’ll love chasing it and showing you how far they can throw. Just be careful to steer clear of any thorny rosebushes or all the fun might end with a pop! (I speak from personal experience. This happened with my kids when they were young and it took a long time to dry all those tears!)

Whether it’s for playtime, a special summer occasion or just hanging out, SophiasStyle.com has got the perfect boys and girls shoes for busy kids on the go!

What’s your favorite game to play with your baby or toddler? Sound off!

Celebrate Her First Sleepover With A Unique Gift From SophiasStyle.com

I remember going off to my first sleepover when I was about 6 years old. We all know sleepovers are fun and a great way for little girls to bond with their friends. Before my first slumber party, however, I was a nervous wreck! I was scared to be at away from home for the first time. Ultimately, the night went fine. I had fun with all of my friends, playing games and eating too much junk food. And I only had to call home to my Mom once.

If only there’d been Sophias Style back then! We’ve got a lot of great gifts to commemorate her first sleepover. Choose a pair of our boutique girls pajamas or this cute new girls underwear set.

Recycled Wrapping Paper Station Craft

We all know wrapping paper, bows, ribbon and all of those other gift wrap accessories sure are fun during the holidays. But what to do with it all once the season has passed? Sure there are lots of storage bins and supplies out there meant to help you organize all those supplies, but these pieces can be very expensive. Sometimes they still don’t even have all the storage you need.

This idea from FamilyFun Magazine solves the problem and recycles another household item, your old baby changing table! Most changing tables are the perfect size for holding standard rolls of wrapping paper, and feature compartments that are perfect for all those different size bows and supplies. This model features shower hooks and other gadgets for added organization, but you can go as simple or as detailed as you like.

To help you better prepare for the holidays, shop SophiasStyle.com for girls Christmas dresses at discount prices. We have many Christmas dresses on sale right now from designer brands like Lito and Bonnie Jean – and at up to 50% off the retail price! Find a stunning look for every little girl in the family.

First Communion is About Family | SophiasStyle.com

At Sunday church last week a beautiful little girl was sitting sandwiched in between her parents, wearing a beautiful 1st communion dress. She was the only child dressed for a first communion in the entire church, and I wondered why. Near the end of mass I got my answer. The priest explained that the first communion ceremony for all the second grade students was supposed to take place in a few weeks, but that this little girl’s father was being deployed to Iraq in just a few days. The little girl had an early ceremony by herself so that her father could witness such a special event in her life.

I wasn’t the only one in the church who was brought to tears by the scene before us. It was very touching and beautiful! The little girl and her family looked so happy. That is truly what first communion is all about. Sophias Style makes taking care of her attire easy, so that you can focus on what is really important. Our communion gowns are simple yet elegant and best of all are affordable too! We also have the perfect shoes, veils, gloves and other accessories to complete her look.

A Creative Way to Save Money On Your Wedding | Sophias Style

Everywhere you look it’s all about weddings – expensive weddings. There are some many things that cost so
much – flowers, food, you name it! It seems like the list of wedding “must haves” keeps growing and growing. I realized this very early on during my own wedding planning process.

Stationary is quickly ballooning into a bridal budget buster. If you’re sending “Save the Date” cards, don’t be surprised if they are almost as detailed (and almost as expensive!) as the actual wedding invitations! The other day I came across a great idea for a save the date card that’s a little different. These are actually Save the Date Stickers. They are completely affordable and also a refreshing change from the standard photo magnet or postcard. You can print them yourself and send them in a small envelope that won’t cost any more than standard postage. Send a few to each wedding guest and they can easily mark a day planner or calendar with your wedding date!

Sophias Style offers a tried and true way to save money on your wedding – our boutique flower girl dresses at discount prices! Styles start at just $29.99 and are simply divine. You’re sure to find the perfect one for any age flower girl. Pick out a fabulous baby or toddler flower girl dress that is sure to coordinate perfectly with your wedding color scheme. We also have great hair accessories, shoes and flower girl baskets to match!

Ice Cube Melt Relay Race For Kids of All Ages

Now that temperatures are finally heating up, it’s time to head outdoors! Break out the sunscreen, trendy sunglasses and girls swimwear, then turn on the sprinkler or hose down the slip ‘n slide. Here’s another fun game you can add to the outdoor festivities. This Ice Cube Melt Relay race is a great group activity for children of all ages, so everyone from wee ones in baby girl swimwear to pre-teens can join in on the fun.

Here’s all you will need:
• Two teams with an equal number of players
• Two ice cubes that are the same size

This game is pretty simple but still tons of fun! Freeze two ice cubes, one for each team (the bigger the better). Arrange each team in a single file line and let each team member hold the ice cube for a set amount of time, about 20-30 seconds. At the sound of a whistle or some other signal, they player must pass the ice cube off to the next teammate behind them. The first team to completely melt their ice cube wins!

After all of the excitement, change clothes and treat everyone to an ice cream bar or popsicle. Our girls summer clothes at Sophias Style are perfect for a trip to the ice cream parlor! Enjoy the warm Spring weather and don’t forget to shop Sophias Style boutique for great discount deals on all the trendiest spring clothing for girls and boys.
