"Wear it!" Wednesday

This weeks "Wear it!" Wednesday post is yet again pretty near and dear to barley & birch's heart.

Meeting the darling Pixie. (:

Pixie is the daughter of Sara, who writes the blog I read most often, tout-est-des-roses. Pixie also has three adorable old brothers named Sam, Mac and Bean. I love reading Sara's blog about her incredible family and lovely way of mothering her wonderful kids. Her blog is a great place to go for inspiration about how to make every day beautiful and fun for everyone! Her energy is so contagious!

As I think I've mentioned before, I kind of want to be one of her kids, as well!

Sara is currently at the Type A Mom conference equipped with TONS of swag, including many b&b tanks, to give to the lucky mommas of her choosing. If you are there, be sure to track her down!

Thanks to my BFF and Pixie for the photos!

"Wear it!" Wednesday-- special edition!

Okay so POP QUIZ whats the coolest part of this really cool photo?

A. The look on my face
B. My slept on hair
C. My classic Ray Bans
D. My 7 year old Citizens
E. My ratty UGGs that I can't get rid of
F. MY FCearth T-shirt
G. The Guy's Volvo wagon

Yep-- you guessed it! F! My FCearth T-shirt!!

So FCearth is a super neat new company owned by my friend Jeff. Jeff is one of the coolest guys ever and also happens to be from the Toledo, OH area. (Like me!!)

FCearth's point is quite similar to b&b's-- you can change the world in everything you do. FCearth has cool tees (like the one I am rocking) now and is working on a line of eco-friendly soccer gear. They then use a part of their proceeds to give soccer balls and instructional DVDs to urban elementary schools all over the US. Um COOL. Soccer is an international language (or so I've been told by The Guy) and the fact that FCearth is sharing it domestically with kids that might not otherwise be exposed is amazing, heartwarming, and relevant.

We are stoked to hear more about what FCearth is doing as they grow and grow. We'll keep you all posted.

Go check them out, get some tees, and get involved!

"Wear it!" Wednesday

So we aren't sure if it's the Bluefeet Tee, the sunny beach, or the darling little smile that make this photo one of our favorites. Hm, probably the darling little smile!

This little cutie goes by "Ladybug." Her mom Jennifer owns Born 2 Impress, a cute line of accessories and apparel for kids. Jennifer also has a great blog and recently featured barley & birch!

Jennifer reports that Ladybugs favorite foods are salads and is speaking a mixture of English and Spanish! Ladybug loves to climb and anything involving water-- at 27 months old almost knows how to swim already! Wow!

Thanks to Jennifer and Ladybug for the photos!
