Farewell, friends

by Ashley on November 28, 2011

Or, rather, see you soon! I’ve decided it’s time to say goodbye to Baby Mine and bring some of its family-focus over to Hither & Thither. Now that Hudson is here, exploring the city and beyond with us, it’s hard to know which personal stories belong where. And then, let’s be honest, there’s the matter […]


Danger, danger

Aron’s words when I announced that JCrew now sells things for babies. Don’t worry–no cashmere sweaters in Hudson’s immediate future. But I’ll be watching.


Opening Ceremony for Kids

by Ashley on October 20, 2011

Opening Ceremony just added retail for kids! Duds by brands like Jean Paul Gautier seem a little decadent for our bebe, but you gotta know I love the French Sailor shirts. And there are some really cool things for gifting. [Via Style Revue]


Dressing for cooler temps…

by Ashley on October 19, 2011

I just went back and looked at this guest post I wrote (pre-baby) for Alyson about a potential outfit for a nursing mom, and I’m happy to say that I still think it would be a good one! (The one challenge I encountered was that most of my pre-baby button-downs didn’t fit my post-baby chest–at […]


Maptote for baby

by Ashley on October 3, 2011

I really love Maptote’s onesies, with city-specific designs. But now I’ve got my eye on their bandanas, too. Besides camouflaging my messy hair, they’d make a rockin’ little drool-catcher! [cute kiddo pic from Maebird via Hank and Lucy]  


Crewcuts Vacation Shop

I spotted these starry luggage pieces–a rolling overnight case and a boxy train case–on Fifth Avenue in the JCrew kids’ department.¬† I want them for myself! (And maybe this and this, too.)

Giveaway! Boumy shoes [closed]

by Ashley on August 3, 2011

Teeny-tiny baby footwear might just be one of the cutest things. Ever. (Well, right after teeny-tiny baby toes.) Pairing up little socks when we did our first load of laundry elicited a good deal of oohs and ahhs. And when he needs shoes, I would love to see him sporting a pair of these! Aren’t […]

Michelle Lehmann and her husband Daniel recently launched a new retail site called reCrib where you can find gently used, brand-name baby gear. The items for sale tend toward high-end and so the prices¬† still tend toward steep. But if you had your hopes set on this $730 Oeuf Crib, you might be pretty excited […]


Dry shampoo

by Ashley on July 7, 2011

Not to sound gross (I promise I do shower regularly), but I’ve relied on dry shampoo for years to keep greasy roots at bay and, in a pinch, rush off to work without washing my hair. My mom first shared this trick with me when1970s-era Psssssssst! was a common drugstore find–and suggested baby powder as […]

I’ve really gained a new appreciation for necklaces while being pregnant: I love the way they can dress up a basic maternity tee, and the elongating effect of the right necklace can feel flattering. I think I might have developed a new shopping interest. So while the concept of a teething necklace at first makes […]
