Too Cool for School

 

It’s back to school season, and for most moms, this means two things: getting your days (and your sanity) back, and shopping for new wardrobes for your mini fashionistas. This year, keep it local by supporting these darling Colorado-based designers.

2 Red Hens Studio

2 Red Hens StudioOnce known for its colorful diaper bags, Lori Holliday’s one-of-a-kind repurposed line recently made its foray into girls clothing. We love the cashmere cardigans shown here that feature patchwork designs for girls newborn to size 6. Also in the collection are pillowcase dresses, peasant tops and skirts fashioned from vintage bed linens. These bold designs are as adorable and unique as your little cutie pies. www.2redhensstudio.com.
