Think Big!

This week for “Think Big” we focused on THESE adorable blue denim jeans for boys. Created by the line Surface To Air, they are great alternative to the classic jean with their bold, fun color and red detailing.

Below, hip hop super star Usher pairs his blue jeans with a clean white sneaker and a simple graffic tee.

Jeans. Tee. Sneakers.

Acclaimed actor, Justin Chatwin sports bright blue pants with a cuff in GQ. This look is relaxed but still a bit formal. Perfect for a night where the kiddos need to dress up a bit. We love the mix of gingham with such a bright color, perfect for your dapper little darling!

Jeans. Shirt. Shoe.

Little Wayne wore bright blue denim during a performance for MTV. He paired them with a studded belt, simple white tee, and scarf. Little Wayne is great at infusing his hip hop look with a bit off rock n rock, as evident in the belt choice.

Jeans. Tee. Scarf. Belt.

Check out what’s new in our shop….

Surface to Air is a French design collective known for their innovative women and mens wear. A jack of all trades, Surface To Air also dabbles in art and film. We highly recommend checking out their BLOG which is filled with all kinds of goodies including music playlists, videos, art reviews, and product info. Lucky for all the fashionable Mamas and Papas, Surface To Air has taken on a kid’s line. Stel’s and Monkey & The Bug carry a slew of fantastic pieces for the whole family in our shop.  Filled with bright colors, silly doodles and pop art prints, the collection is a perfect hybrid of adult like sophistication and child like wonder. What we love the most about STA is that they didn’t forget about the little boy. While their girls clothing is entirely adorable (we are sure you will fall in love with each and every piece), the boys clothing is super cool as well. Check out more from Surface to Air HERE.

Coming soon to Monkey & The Bug is the line Little Warriors. Created by Maggie Fox of the L.A. shop Filth Mart, the line is Cali cool with a youthful spirit. We love the refreshing, sherbet like color palette and the southwest inspired prints. Each piece is overdyed for maximum softness potential and the lines are made for little ones on the move. Every parent knows that if something isn’t comfortable than a kid won’t wear it. We are happy to report that Little Warriors has captured the style a parent wants and the coziness children crave. Be sure to check back with us for updates about Little Warrior at Monkey & The Bug,  follow us on TWITTER, or “like” us on FACEBOOK.

P.S. Did you know right now Stel’s and Monkey & The Bug are offering free ground shipping??? Pretty exciting, no?

What I Wore

I spend a lot of days working at our shop, Stel’s on Newbury Street. The weather here in Boston has been Spring like but with a bit of a chill so I prefer to dress in layers. Here, I am wearing pieces from our shop (you can find some online). Both the cardigan and tank are made of linen and the leggings have an amazing leather detail on them. They remind me of riding pants but with an edge. The Rachel Comey booties are super comfy and can be worn all year round.
