Not So Basic Basics by Kidpik





My three kids were born and bred in NYC. We might have moved over the bridge to suburbia, but they are still City kids at heart. My littles are all about color and comfort - and like their momma, they love a good deal. We reviewed a Kidpik Subscription Box a little while back but today I want to talk about Kidpik Basics. The girls picked out a few pieces for back to school that we wanted to share with you. We're so excited to announce that we are giving away a Kidpik Subscription Box on my Instagram - click here to enter! And scroll down for an exclusive Kidpik coupon code just for my followers.

This past Sunday, we headed downtown to explore the Lower East Side to check out some of the walls we've admired on Instagram. And when we got down there we found ALL of those walls painted over. NYC street art is constantly being done and redone so you gotta act fast if you want to shoot. So we improvised and wandered around in search of colorful backdrops to showcase our Kidpik style.





Kidpik Basics come in sizes 4-14 in a rainbow of colors and silhouettes - which is just how we like it! My girls have a modest dress-code for school so they wanted to stock up on their favorite pencil skirts. Kidpik is brought to you by the same people as RUUM (loved their stuff!) and some of the items even came with RUUM tags.

To get an idea of fit, Ella is 52" and 56 lbs. and wearing a 7/8 on bottom and 10/12 on top. Ava is 48" and 48 lbs. and wearing a 7/8 on top and 5/6 on bottom. My girls (especially Ella) are VERY particular with fit. My skinny minnies are long and lean and we sometimes have a hard time finding clothing to fit their slender frames.

These pencil skirts fit like a dream and range in price from $3.75-7.50. And FYI the 7/8 measures 19" long and the 5/6 measures 17.25" long. They're not too thin, not too thick, nice and stretchy, and don't ride up too much when your wiggly kids move around.








As for tops, other than the tie dye which has a more slender fit, we probably could have sized down for the looser designs. Most of the arms fit wider so we had to push them up. They're also on the thinner side but still super cozy and not see through. The body of the 3/4 sleeve top was nice a fitted but the sleeves are a little looser than we'd like. If you do size down, just be aware that some of the designs are cropped and you may be need to layer with a tank top for full coverage. These tops ranged in price from $7.50-$17.50, and many styles offer deals if you purchase two. Kidpik also offers a deals of the week where the featured item is discounted. Right now they have the cutest booties on promo for just $19.99! And their sale section is pretty epic!







The girls were also super excited about their new lightening metallic sneakers. They are so chic and comfortable - Ella actually wore hers to Fashion Week (seen here) this year. She lasted all day on her feet without any complaints. They come in several colors too! Ella is wearing a 4 in shoes right now and Ava is in a 2, but these styles ran a little big for us so we sized down to a 3 and 1 respectively.





Biker shorts are always hard to find for some reason - and Kidpik has some on sale right now for just $2.75! My girls like to do cartwheels and handstands wherever they go so we always have some on under our skirts. You seriously can't beat that price!






It was pretty warm out so the girls started to lose it after a couple hours in the sun, so I took them to byChloe on Bleeker to chow down. I ordered them some treats but they just couldn't wait. By the time the real food came out we were all so hungry that we didn't bother taking pics. Ella always gets the Avocado toast and Ava went crazy for their cauliflower soup. And the fries with beet ketchup are always a big hit.







Everything featured here is now currently available on the Kidpik Basics website. The girls did add a few of their own accessories to show how easily these basics can be mixed in to their own wardrobes.

Bonus - get FREE shipping on a $25 purchase with code LEHOARDER (from September 18th to October 2nd, US only). Have you tried Kidpik? If you haven't, now is the time!

Thank you to Kidpik for kindly sponsoring this post. All opinions are 100% honest & completely our own. 

Happy shopping! Feel free to ask me any fit/sizing questions. Always happy to help another momma get her deal on!

XO
Michelle, Ella & Ava

  1. The girls are gorgeous. I remember when I used to dress mine all matching. I think they would kill me if I even suggested it :-/

  4. It was definitely worth y'all searching for the perfect backgrounds for their looks because they backgrounds are in fact, PERFECT! I just love the contrast of color. I think this is also my first time seeing pencil skirts for girls that are so age appropriate. I think the mint and grey looks are my fave on them :)

    1. It was so frustrating because we had it all planned out - and nothing was there LOL. They are super cute right? And we actually planned on tying the purple shirt around their waists for that look but decided to try one single neutral look and it totally worked :) Thanks Candace!

  5. Aww I love how even your daughters are so into photography and what you do in the blogging world! These are just too cute and makes me wish I was having a little girl so I could play dress ups too! I've just gotta hope my baby boy is as keen to get in front of the camera as your girls ;)

  6. Awww you girls are so adorable!
    Love the pieces they selected from kidpik! They are all so cute and easy to wear. And I bet they are good at mixing and matching things up differently just like their mother;-)
    Also I love that they have some of the same interests as you do! This is such a great way to spend quality time with your kids.

  8. How have I not heard about KidPik? How absolutely fantastic! I've been thinking how I don't spend enough time really searching for cute outfits for my little ones. While I love Target, literally that's all they ever wear because it takes the thought out of shopping for them on my weekly trips! This is definitely something I need to check out for them. The prices seems so reasonable and I love that someone is curating boxes for them! The basics don't look so basic to me! They are so amazing! Loved this post and your two girls are so cute and I bet they had such a great time shooting this!

    I have never heard about KidPik, but now I completely realize that their designs are so pretty and chic. I love how girls look wearing this kind of clothing. Thanks for sharing this great option, despite the prices seems reasonable, the pieces are trendy and beautiful for stylish little girls. I will check it for my daughter., I'm pretty sure she will love this brand.
    Have a nice day!
