I decorated the area with Confetti System pinatas and used a simple moses basket to hold pillows.

Aside from running Monkey & The Bug and mothering twin girls, I also co-own a mens and womens wear shop. Stels was born eight years ago by my friend Jon, my husband Dave, and myself. We carry brands such as Rachel Comey, Gary Graham, Robert Geller, Aiko, Suno, Our Legacy, and many more. Stels is currently having a huge 50% off sale. Head HERE to shop.
I wanted to share a few photos of our store which shares a space with Monkey & The Bug. After almost a decade of life, the shop has become my second home. We tried to make it a clean, welcoming, friendly environment and I think we achieved our goal. There are always friends visiting and great music playing. It feels more like a hang out spot than a clothing store. We are located at 334 Newbury Street in Boston, MA. If you are local or ever in the area, pop in and say HI!
Artist Raul Gonzalez created these beautiful pieces. They are for sale and you can read more about Raul and his work HERE.
We carry Warby Parker in the shop. I am obsessed with the collaboration they did with Suno. Head HERE for more info.

This weeks think big is all about the tiered tutu skirt. We have a gorgeous pale grey tutu made of tulle in the shop and I am obsessed with it. Tutus can be very over the top but this particular tutu, created by wovenplay, is subtle. Styling a tiered skirt can be a lot of fun. I encourage you to play around with it. It can be sugary sweet or tough chic! The possibilities are endless.
Chloe Sevigny is always super cool. Here she sports a black tutu with a geometric top. She keeps the look grounded with masculine boots and opaque black tights. We paired our look with leggings to keep the little one comfy.
Reece Witherspoon does a great job of taking a tutu skirt and making it casual. This look is perfect for a trip to the park! We paired the skirt with a straw fedora, charm necklace, and simple tank.
Miley Cyrus is wearing her tutu like a modern day princess. I love the use of accessories to make this outfit pop. What little girl doesn’t love piling on necklaces? This is a great outfit for an early evening wedding or formal event.
That’s all for think Big today. I hope you enjoyed! I want to thank everyone who participated in our sale (more on that HERE) and let you know that the sale will be open for your shopping pleasure for a few more days. It’s 60% off online and 75% in store. If you are in the Boston area and can stop in you should know we have much more available here in Stel’s than online and I added some more lovely goodies to the floor just a couple of days ago. Yay!

I am super excited to announce that arriving to the shop very shortly is the Atsuyo et Akiko X Disney collabo. Atsuyo et Akiko have a knack for taking the everyday and turning it into something magical. Who would have though a story as traditional as Winnie The Pooh could take on neon and somehow look so sweet? I will certainly keep you updated when the order hits the store.
Don’t forget we have a great sale going on (check it out HERE) and M&TB is currently in the running for Best Children’s Boutique in Boston. Would you be so kind as to vote for Monkey & The Bug? (vote HERE) Thanks!

As anyone with a toddler knows, they are filled with what seems like a boundless amount of energy. My twins are 2 and 1/2 years old and we live in a 2 bedroom condo so it is vital that we get Riley and Gemma outdoors as much as possible.
On this particular afternoon, it was a bit chilly but we could feel spring in the air. After winter in Boston even a little bit of sunshine can feel like a lot. Dave and I decided to take the girls to one of our favorite Boston spots, Castle Island in South Boston.
The island is home to Fort Independence, a former military structure. During the summer months the fort is open to the public for exploration and adventure. A little fun fact: Castle Island is no longer an island and is actually connected to the mainland by a narrow strip of land. This makes it easy to get to and there is a ton of parking.
A large playground is also situated on the island and if you’re hungry you can grab a bite at the crowd favorite, Sullivan’s (aka Sully’s) – a little greasy spoon joint that serves great fries. There is also a beach area, plenty of room for bike riders, fishing off of the pier, and fantastic airplane watching (Castle Island is located near Logan Airport).
We love taking advantage of Boston and all that it has to offer. It’s nice to know that we don’t have to travel far to make great memories for the girls.
