Where my girl mama's at?! I get this question all the time, so I've compiled a list of the BEST places to shop small for the little princesses in your life! I can't shop small for everything (I get a lot of E's stuff from Gap, Old Navy, and Target) but for a little extra fun and for speciality items, shopping small is the way to go!


Kids 3+ handmade necklaces, obsessed with the uniqueness! Riley and her father, John, make these unique vintage inspired necklaces and other fun things! Follow them on Instagram here. I absolutely love supporting them, they are the cutest/best duo ever. This is a daddy-daughter business and it makes my heart so happy!  Shop the website here.

This is a mama run small business based out of Georgia, and mostly all of Emaline's bows have come from here. Nikki makes them by hand and they are absolutely beautiful. She is also basically CEO of the Good Vibe Tribe which I absolutely love. I love supporting small businesses like hers! The bows themselves can be as outrageous or small as you want - they come in several sizes. She sells out quickly, so follow her on Instagram to know when her big releases are coming up and set your alarm! Follow her on Instagram here, and shop her website here.

This shop has the cutest, coolest, most beautiful tassel necklaces! Handmade out of Austin, Texas. You can add whatever charm you want to any necklace as well. Katarina has recently started branching out and making some REALLY COOL designs and I want them all for Em!! These necklaces are magnetic so they come on and off easily. She has an amazing selection of holiday necklaces, feather necklaces, and more. Follow her on Instagram here, and shop her website here.

This mama made business is adorable! She makes the cutest rompers ever. Em will be wearing the 'merry mistletoe' one for Christmas, and I can't wait! I'm going to pair it with tights and cute oxfords or mary janes. Check her out on Instagram here, and shop her website here.  Here are some of my favorites available now:

"Where whimsy meets rad" I. Cannot. EVEN. with this company! Obsessed with the leotards! They are all handmade by Brittany out of Northern California. Em has worn several of her designs throughout the past two years, and I loved how easy they were to slip on when she was a baby! Throw them under leggings, skirts, or over tights! Follow her on Instagram here, and shop her website here.
