Thanks to Shrimp & Grits Kids for providing review and giveaway products! All thoughts and opinions are my own, as always.
I love the story of the founding of Shrimp & Grits Kids, a clothing company based out of South Carolina. After Megan Hewitt had her first child, she wanted to do what any Southern mama would do…fill the closets with smocked, embroidered, monogrammed, and all-around adorable clothing.
But guess what? That stuff is CRAZY expensive!!! My own mother has come home from garage sales before, beaming with pride at the smocked dresses she picked up there, still paying $15-$20 (for used clothing!). Megan decided to learn how to make these beautiful creations herself to bring the costs down. Only, i turns out that smocking, embroidering and monogramming all require expensive equipment, LOTS of time, and enough materials to make the final creations cost pretty much the same as what you are charged in a store.
What to do??? Well, this savvy lady searched high and low and finally found a manufacturer that could create the designs she was seeking, and by cutting out the middle man, she could save quite a bit of money. And so, Shrimp & Grits Kids was born!
Inspired by the South Carolina coast and culture, Megan’s designs are too cute for words (well, almost…I’m a blogger, so I always have SOMETHING to say!). While my personal taste in clothing for my kids leans not quite as preppy as most of her collection, I was instantly in love with the Serendipity line. This is pretty much exactly how I’d love to dress my kids, and the style reminds me a lot of the looks I see in the boutiques here in town (the only thing missing was the boutique price tags!).
Darah is wearing the Clementine top, which is currently on sale for just $20.77! I’d buy it again if we didn’t already own it!! This is one of her very favorite tops, and it is pretty much getting worn as soon as it finishes drying after being washed. It is going to be a summer staple, for sure.
It’s a little big in the back, but Darah is quite petite, and the tie in the back makes the size no problem. You can just cinch it!
Layah is wearing the Cora top. I just adore the colors in this one! And when the girls wear them on the same day, I DIE. Cause of death: heart melted. This one is also just $20.77 right now. Jump on it!
In fact THE ENTIRE STORE IS 33% OFF RIGHT NOW!!! If you are drawn to the Serendipity collection, or if your style is a bit more traditional, have a look around. You are going to be thrilled with what you see and with the prices, especially during the sale! I mean, just look at the cuteness!
And I should mention that they do have clothes for boys; you’ll have to forgive me for not featuring them…it’s all girl, all the time around here!
