Ellifox is having an incredible sale on high-quality pima basics for little ones at the moment. First: difficult-to-find peter pan collar tops almost fully stocked in white and some other great trim colors under $15. Run! I’ve also written about these peter pan collar dresses many times, and they are under $20 in great colors. These are a total mainstay in my daughter’s wardrobe (as seen above). Easiest everyday outfit! Can be layered over leggings if chilly or worn on their own with a big bow and some Cientas, which — OMG! Cientas on sale here for $25/pop, and in great colors/patterns. Almost fully stocked in toddler sizes in my favorite color and style, the navy t-strap, and in mini’s gingham mary janes (seen above). In case you are new here, these have been a long-standing favorite of ours because they wear like a sneaker but look a little dressier and can go with anything from shorts to leggings to dresses (even kind of fancy ones — they still work!). They are also machine-washable. I find using a tiny bit of liquid or powdered detergent on the rubber with a toothbrush also makes them look good as new before a big occasion!

I also did want to mention that Target has some cotton everyday dresses (and some SS ones here) for little ladies along the same lines, though without the darling collar. We’ve purchased a few of these and they’re just so-so on quality — I feel that they show their washes quickly. However, a solid everyday dress to have in the rotation.
And mini loves (!!!) her silver glitter rain boots. The first day she was apprehensive about wearing them because she didn’t want any of the glitter to fall off outside! Too sweet! A really fun boot for a little lady, and Hunter’s quality can’t be beat. Micro has worn his pair of yellow Hunters close to daily doing those intensive things little boys do — jump on EVERYTHING, walk sideways on curbs, etc — and they are still in great condition, and that’s AFTER they belonged to mini first, and she also loved them. Just the best.
P.S. I can’t tell you how many of our friends and family have tested positive for COVID at this point, many within the last two weeks. I have sent so many Amazon packages! In case you’re wondering what to send or need to occupy small hands at home, I wrote a long post on this subject here, but I also wanted to share this post on “slow-burn toys” (toys my children continue to return to, week after week) and this more recent post on stocking stuffers which might have additional ideas that appeal. One thing I’ve been talking with a lot of my mom friends about is how much novelty has been helpful during these long quarantines. Like, they could be looking at a neighbor’s old, tattered coloring book and just because it’s new and different, there is SO much interest. Not to say they need something new every day, but just that — tiny little surprises and borrowed items helped me make my way through the long stretch.
P.P.S. It’s nice to be needed all the same.
P.P.P.S. Praying by name.
