Favorites: Ink & Wit

I've been a longtime fan of Ink & Wit, the illustration and design company of Tara Hogan. I met Tara at the National Stationery Show in New York over 8 years ago and just loved her and her sweet illustrations and organic style--I have kept two of her letterpress calendars from a few years back. Now a sweet mama of two boys, Tara has a line of super soft and simple t-shirts for kids and mamas. Two little boys is no joke--finding the time to get back into the swing of things work wise is a huge deal and I'm in full support of that. Tara was kind enough to send us the Earth Dweller t-shirt for Lucas, the Cloud Hopper Rain Stopper t-shirt for Theo and the Moon Mama t-shirt for me, and we have been wearing them all the time. I love the super soft cotton and the gender neutral colors and designs. Plus, they're made in the USA from 100% Fine Jersey cotton.

See how cute Lucas and Theo look in their new t-shirts and scroll down for a sweet discount code for shirts and scarves in the Ink & Wit online shop.

I really don't like photos of myself but I love this t-shirt so I'm making a sacrifice ;) By the way, this is a size large so it's a bit on the looser side which I prefer. Thanks to Nick for snapping these.

Tara is offering Good on Paper readers 10% off shirts and scarves with code GOODONPAPER10. Also, check out their beautiful hand block printed Tulsi scarves--more to come on those! Thanks so much Tara!

When I found out I was pregnant with my first boy, I heard stuff like, "Oh, get ready for lots of climbing, running, chasing after him" and "you'll definitely have your hands full." Well, guess what? Now I have TWO of those! Lucas is definitely more active than Theo, but there have been times when they've run in opposite directions when I needed them to stay put. Can't say I wasn't warned!

Needless to say, when it comes to dressing my boys, their clothes need to be comfortable and able to withstand a bit of wear and tear. Enter Iddy Biddy, a small company that creates cool & comfy knits for the modern day babe/kiddo, created by two hard working mamas in the fashion industry. When they sent Lucas and Theo these cute leggings, I couldn't have been more excited to test drive them out.

Made of cotton jersey with quality sewing, the prints are fun and modern (stripes and camo!) and have held up to Lucas and Theo's active lifestyles, even after several washes. Most of Iddy Biddy's current fabric offering is made from thicker weight cotton, with a few patterns in  lighter weight (such as the camo print). All of the samples I received had plenty of stretch for comfort while providing a slimmer/skinnier look. Currently all of their fabric is locally sourced and hand made in San Francisco.

Getting them to sit still for this photo shoot was a challenge. But I think all the movement made for some interesting angles (had no idea Lucas could do a hand stand) and really showed how well the leggings fit and moved with their bodies. And thanks to my husband Nick who kept the tickles and giggles going for our shoot.

We decided to take the boys and their new pants to "the forest" (aka Christmas tree shopping). What better way to test the quality of the pants than to have the boys weave through needles of giant noble firs.

Iddy Biddy is currently working on their Etsy shop that will go live in January. They will carry skinny leggings, harem/drop crotch leggings, slouchy beanies/infant knotted beanies, and knotted and turban headbands. They will be diversifying their assortment in mid 2015 to include graphic tees and more. For sizing they offer 2T, 3T, & 4T (just for reference, Lucas wore a 4T and Theo wore a 3T) and run a bit slimmer than brands like Gap and Old Navy which is awesome for my skinny minnies! For updates on what's new and to see other cute kiddos sporting Iddy Biddy, check out their Instagram feed @iddy_biddy_baby.
