Favorites in Red, White, and Blue

Happy Memorial Day!

I hope between the splash pads, pools, BBQs, and fun of the three day weekend you were able to take a moment to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Freedom isn't free (It costs a buck o Don't tell me I'm the only person who loved that movie?!?) Today we honor and remember all the fallen heroes.


In honor of Memorial Day, this month's Favorite Things party is all about the Red, White, and Blue. I'm linking up with Andrea at Momfessionals to share some favorite things under $10.


My darlings in leggings and teepee shirts from J2Boutique.

Currently, little boys (and girls but I don't have any of those) leggings are really topping my favorite things list. They come in great patterns, are cozy and comfortable, protect toddler knees from all of the (many, many, many) falls and wrestling matches, aren't hot like pants, and look cute to boot! My husband objects to the word leggings for boys - So maybe they're skinny pants?

I have found most of my favorite leggings on etsy and Instagram and love that they are handmade by small businesses. Finding some under $10 is a bit of a challenge though! Never fear I did it!


In RED: This pair isn't exactly a legging. Well, it isn't a legging at all. But, these are red lounge pants made from upcycled t-shirts. How great is that! Picture wrapping your legs in your favorite worn in t-shirt! I want a pair for me. I don't own any of these pants for the boys, but I want to! Especially the star pair. Sadly, my huge mama guilt when I dress them differently and then second guess why I put which kid in which outfit since I clearly prefer one outfit over the other makes it hard for me to buy these since they are all one of a kid. I'm going to have to get over my weird guilt issues though because for $10 these are a steal!


In WHITE: I adore these Tom and Jerry leggings! So fun! So whimsical! So easy to wear. They're dirty right now and I don't have any pictures of the boys wearing them, so this stock photo will have to do (sorry!). These are comfy, well made, and seem to wash well - although I've only pre-washed so this next wash will be the big test! And they are only $9.95! This same seller has two pairs in blue for the 6-12 month crowd - a great blue camo (for only $5.95!) and an all American baseball pattern (for $9.95). Very cute!


In BLUE: This legging seller has leggings for $10 as well. I ordered this black leggings with white crosses last week and can't wait until they ship. They will go with everything. I also ordered an awesome blue geometric tank top that was on sale (for only $6!). Well, this same fun geometric blue is available in a legging! Too cute!
