I’m so excited about this weeks kiddo, my friends. We have our very first little style maven glasses! And this cutie patootie is sportin’ the most rockin’ pair of spex you’ve ever seen! Meet the fabulously, adorable Wren. Her mama Mari is an ex toy designer (and a great pal of Modern Kiddo!). She runs the awesome blog, Small for Big and is always showcasing really fun, cool stuff. Wren is a sassy two year old with moxie to spare! Take a gander, peeps:


+ glasses – Bbkids, from the Glasses Menagerie
+ pom pom hat – Handknit by her momma! (pattern available on here)
+ coat – Kate Quinn Organics, from lili picked
+ flannel plaid shirt – Fleet Farm
+ red t-shirt – Interesting story. It’s a sample brought back from Paris by a coworker on a trend research trip several years ago. Mari got it when the woman cleaned out her office (score!)
+ cords – Old Navy
+ shoes – Livie & Luca, from Hautelook

Seriously now….HOW CUTE ARE THOSE LITTLE GLASSES??? I love this girl! Her style is very boho chic….like, in a few years I can imagine her modeling for Anthropologie , am I right??
+ glasses – zoobugs, from The Glasses Menagerie
+ dress – Kate Quinn Organics, from Lilipicked
+ pants – Right Bank Baby, from Hautelook


+ dress – Kate Quinn Organics, from Lilipicked
+ pants – Right Bank Baby, from Hautelook
+ shoes – Livie & Luca, from Hautelook


+ dress – Kate Quinn Organics, from Lilipicked
+ leggings – the gap
+ Shoes – Converse bought on clearance from Babies R Us


+ tunic – Right Bank Baby, from Hautelook
+ leggings – from Modern Kiddo sponsor,  Parasols Boutique!



+ coat – Stella McCartney for the Gap – scored on clearance!
+ skirt – Right Bank Baby, from Hautelook
+ leggings – the Gap
+ shoes – Converse

Wren is a rambunctious, artistic, independent little sass. She loves kitties, coloring with her colored pencils, and putting stickers on everything. For some strange reason she calls every single one of her crayons pink (which has stunned and slightly dismayed her momma!).

But she also drops everything and runs to the back window to watch the Choo Choo Trainsacross the field from our backyard. She has an innate talent for modern interpretive dance with props—large kitchen spoons paired with Vampire Weekend and the classic 1970s Sesame Street album “In Harmony” are her current faves! (I die….) She is also a pro at running away from her parents in parking lots. First thing each morning you’ll find her sitting quietly with perfect posture on the sofa, her favorite picture book of the moment (or Daddy’s C++ manual) flipped open in her lap.

Thank you Mari for sharing your crazy cute little sweetie with us!

    Proud Grandma finally caught up with Wren’s debut – Modern Kiddo – I am way behind on technology, but managed to read this and, well, am bursting with pride over both daughter and Birdie – more cute and fun (Wren) and always surprising her Mom (daughter, Mari) – Thanks for all the shared comments on Wren! Delightful reading. I need to go to the source for some print outs of these wonderful photos of our granddaughter!!! Are you listening, Mari??? Hugs.
