Wonderboy is just for boys and Stun for girls {No Boys Allowed!}. Both are designed by the same talent, and have a similar modern, relaxed feel.

Wonderboy is all about prints, clean cuts, and ease of wear. Their Spring 2011 collection reminds me of modern vacation wear, with a classic feel. We all love a vacation, why not dress your little man like everyday is a vacation!

Stun is based on the same ideals: modern, clean cuts and ease of wear. The bright spring palette, fun and playful patterns together with the modern styles make a Stun piece a must have for any little girl.

You can buy your kiddos some Wonderboy and Stun at Juice Kids.

Another awesome Etsy find! I’m totally swooning over these handmade leather shoes for babies. The store Rose-Anne Russell {artists name also} makes some pretty cool handmade one of a kind leather goods, all sorts of goods. But of course the shoes for little ones are my most favourite.That pair of floral baby shoes is to die for!

Her shop announcement reads, that she will be devoting more time to creating, I’m excited to see what other amazing little shoes she comes up with!

Another double Little Lookbooks to Love sorta week.;) I can’t believe I haven’t posted about Native shoes yet! I am obsessed with these shoes. Native shoes are cool, funky and can be worn with or without socks. Finally something to help phase out crocs!

I’m a huge supporter of Native Shoes, 1) they are really awesome, 2) they are Canadian {as are we!}. I have been raving about these shoes all over the interweb, they are on every must have list I have written.

They come on 3 different styles; Miller, Jefferson and Corrado, and each style offers a rainbow of colors! They of course have adults styles too {5 different adult styles}, which are also pretty darn cool.

Native Shoes are a total must have for Spring/Summer, perfect for playing at the park when its too hot for shoes, wearing to the pool when they need traction when wet, honestly they are pretty perfect for anytime!

I am having a hard time deciding which style and color to get King, I sorta want them all! Which ones are your favourite?
