Adorable Clothes for Adorable Girls

Staying Cool With The Fawnzie

Jacob KopenheferComment

I have not been up to much these last few weeks. I have been laying low because of the heat. When I say laying low I literally mean laying low. In the heat of the summer we deer spend our time bedding down in tall grass, hopefully by water if we can find it.

I wish I could take off this fur and slip into Little Fawn's Lizzie Ruffle Top and Norma Skirt. Lots of Little Fawn's clothing is perfect to beat the heat on these hot summer days. The best I can do is pant like a dog and wave my big old ears around and use them like a radiator (that’s a trick I learned from my friend rabbit).

Well I’m gonna stay here and nap in the shade, but you should head over to littlefawnclothing.com and check out the fashionable way to beat the heat this summer. They even have a new pant just perfect for those backyard BBQs coming up! I love BBQ’s! Well, I really just go for the salads.

Spicing Up Your Summer Party

Jennifer RinggerComment

The first day of summer is fast approaching! That means warmer days and nights with family and friends. There’s no better way to celebrate the carefree days of summer than with a fun get-together. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite party ideas for you to try out this year.


1.    Chalk Up the Menu
Let your guests know what’s being served by displaying the menu in a creative way. Paint a tall piece of plywood with chalkboard paint for a larger-than-life menu board. Simply write what’s for dinner with chalk. 

2.    Use Popsicle Sticks to Label Condiments
Wooden craft sticks can add a whimsical look to the serving table, while also playing double duty by letting your guests know what condiments are available. Bonus: the sticks can also work as spreading utensils.

3.    Keep It Cool in the Kiddie Pool
You know those plastic kid pools? They can do more than just provide entertainment for your children. Fill one of these kiddie pools with ice to keep drinks and food cold. Keeping food cold is especially important once the temperatures start to rise. 

4.    Keep the Mosquitos Away
Nothing ruins a good time faster than pesky mosquitos biting your guests. Our tip? Use sage to keep the bugs away. Add sage to a fire pit or a warm grill (after you’re done cooking, of course) and the bugs and mosquitos will soon learn they are unwanted guests at your party.

5.    Add Some Light
With a little help, you can turn your Christmas lights in twinkly summer lights. Turn the lights from a holiday theme into a summer flowering theme by puncturing the bottom of a paper muffin cup in the center and placing one over each bulb. It’s like an instant flower garden!

Feel free to steal some of our favorite ideas to make your summer get-together a little more special. 

 

 

 

 

Catching Up with Fawnzie: Spring Changes

Jennifer RinggerComment

I want to share with you today a story that happened to me just this morning.

As I was cuddling up in a ball and letting the warm rising sun wash over me, I opened my eyes and right in front of my face a beautiful yellow daffodil had opened up wide and was staring right at me!

“Hello Mrs Daffodil, it is so good to see you!” I said.

“Hello Fawnzie!” Said the flower.  

Now you humans might find it hard to believe that plants can talk, but that's only because you can’t hear them. As a little fawn I speak with plants all the time (except the plants I’m about to eat; it’s not a good idea to talk with your food). “I can’t believe you are out already. Is spring finally here?” I asked.

“It is here and not a moment too soon. I have been cramped up in that tiny bulb all winter long. It feels so good to stretch my pedals and breathe the crisp spring air.” She replied. “My favorite thing about Spring,” she continued, “is seeing all the changes that have taken place since I was out last.”

“Well, what do you see?” I asked her.

She looked around. Slowly turning her beautiful yellow face from left then to the right. “I see bright colors and ……..is that?..... Ooohhhhh….” She said squinting her little yellow eyes as she peered into the distant rising sun. “I see big changes coming.”

 “What? Where?” I asked, “What are you looking at?”

 “It’s spring, Fawnzie, changes are taking place.” Her gentle tone calmed me. “Big changes are coming, but don’t be scared. They are wonderful changes. You can’t see them yet but they are already in the works.”  She turned her happy face toward me now. “You will have to be patient Fawnzie. You might not see all the big changes until later this summer but soon you will see new things for yourself and you will be as excited as I am for what lays ahead.”

5 Ways to Make St. Patrick’s Day Fun for the Family

Jennifer RinggerComment

The Luck of the Irish will be yours on March 17! Now is the time to make preparations to ensure you have a fun-filled day full of green and lucky charms. Check out these 5 fabulous ideas that will make this often-overlooked holiday a family favorite in no time.

1.       Enjoy Gold Oreo Coins. For a sweet treat that’s also themed for this lucky holiday, try making Oreo cookies into gold coins. All you need is a bag of cookies and edible gold spray paint. You can find the edible spray paint at most party stores. Simply paint the cookies gold and eat for a fun after-school snack.

 

2.       Let the Leprechaun Come Visit. Take some Rolos (gold coins) and hide them around the house or put a bit of green food coloring in the toilet bowl. Your kids will get a kick out of thinking a leprechaun came to visit in the night. You could also put green food coloring in your kids milk for breakfast. Just be careful…those leprechauns can be a bit mischievous.

 

3.       Make Some Lucky Treats. Cereal treats are always a favorite, even for the picky eaters. Mix it up a little for St. Patrick’s Day by using Lucky Charms cereal with your tried and true cereal treats recipe.

 

 

4.       Create Green Crafts. Nothing brightens up the home better than some holiday-themed crafts. An easy craft to make is a Leprechaun Hat. All you have to do is paint a flower pot green, turn it upside down, and add some accents of your choice. Use black ribbon for a belt around the middle or add a four-leaf clover.

 


5.       Eat Like the Irish. Cornbeef and Hash isn’t for everyone, but you can still add some Irish flair to your dinner table. Make cheesy bacon potatoes in the crockpot. For the easy and delicious recipe, go here.


For more St. Patrick’s Day fun, be sure to visit Little Fawn’s Pinterest board. May you and your family enjoy this lucky day!  



Meet Fawnzie

Jennifer RinggerComment

I wanted to tell you a little about who I am. My name is Fawnzie and you may have seen me around. I’m that little fawn that hangs out on all the pages around here. Because I spend so much time on every page at Little Fawn Clothing I have seen it all. From the very beginning I was a fan of the Eliza Dress and was shocked to see the amazing deal they just offered on it recently. I should say how low the price got was what shocked me not the fact that they had a special deal going. They do deals a lot around here. That's why after all this time I still don’t get bored looking around the site. All the time they are surprising me with something great - maybe a huge savings on something classic or a totally cute picture of a new item that just makes my spots tingle!  

 It’s a funny story how I ended up here. It all started last spring. I decided to try giving this internet shopping a try; after all it is a bit of a trip to get to town and a little deer in the big city is less than ideal. Well, I soon realized that I could have practically everything I needed and millions of things I didn’t need shipped right to me - it was amazing! On top of getting all my shopping done, I also discovered that the rulers of the internet go by the title Kardashian and that the word Google must translate as “all knowing.”

Anyway, as I was looking around I realized that the internet loves cats and then I saw something that blew me away. It was a cat wearing a sweater! Apparently it is totally acceptable now for animals to wear clothes. I was ecstatic! The further I looked the more I saw, cats, dogs, even a bear wearing blue jeans and a wide brimmed hat (I still don’t know why he told me I’m the only one who can prevent wildfires. It seems like someone with thumbs would have a whole lot better chance at it.) All these animals in clothes got me thinking I needed to jazz it up with some stylish threads so I asked the all knowing Google to find me “little fawn clothing” and that omnipotent Google took me right here. I love the clothes, I can’t get enough of them, but I still am not fully convinced that they will fit me right. After all both the Madeline and Emma pant only have two leg holes.

 

Family Valentine’s Day Ideas

Jennifer RinggerComment

 

Valentine’s Day is such a fun holiday! It celebrates love, life, and all that we cherish. Celebrating the holiday of love isn’t just for couples…you can also celebrate as a family. Some of the fondest childhood memories stem from family traditions. Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to create some new family traditions and show those around you how much they are loved. Try one of these fun ideas this Valentine’s Day with your family.

Create a Scavenger Hunt

Gather the kids and plan a unique scavenger hunt for dad (or mom). Hide clues, taping a small chocolate kiss or other treat to each one. Have a meaningful gift at the end of the hunt. Possibilities for the ending gift could be service (like washing the car, taking out the garbage, cooking dinner), drawings, or handwritten notes.

Send Love Notes

With instant messaging, text messages, and email, the art of the handwritten card sent in the mail has been lost. Mail each of your children a Valentine’s Day card from you and your spouse. Tell your child why you love him or her, and also show your appreciate that your son/daughter is your child.

Go on a Family Date

The gift of spending time together is one of the best gifts you can give! Take the entire family out for a night of fun. Go bowling, to get pizza, or try one of those indoor trampoline centers. Not only will you have fun spending time together, but the kids can burn off some excess energy as well.

Show Some Appreciation

Cultivating a sense of appreciation is a wonderful thing to do on Valentine’s Day. Help your children express appreciation to someone else. Have each child write a note to grandma and grandpa before the big day. On February 14, personally deliver the notes along with a homemade treat or bouquet of flowers. If the grandparents live out of town, mail the notes.

Cozy up on the Couch

Get some pillows and blankets and pop in a family-friendly movie. Some favorites include A Charlie Brown Valentine or Lady and the Tramp.

Say “I Love You”

Valentine’s Day wouldn’t be complete without saying “I love you.” At dinner, go around the table and have everyone share three reasons they love each member of the family. You may also have everyone write their lists beforehand and read the love notes at dinner.

No matter how you choose to spend the holiday, make it a Happy Valentine’s Day!

About Little Fawn

Jennifer RinggerComment

“You have to be able to see it twirl when you spin.” –Little Fawn Co-Founder and Designer

When Little Fawn’s co-founder and designer heard his niece tell him that a dress needs to twirl and spin in order to be a dress, the idea of Little Fawn was born. The desire to bring imaginative, wearable kids’ boutique clothing that embraced the innocence and fun of childhood to market was just the beginning for Little Fawn. 

Little Fawn Clothing’s designs are youthful and playful. They are whimsical and expressive. Rich colors, patterns, and textures are designed to capture the spirit and imagination of childhood. Remember those carefree days of playing with friends, riding bicycles through the neighborhood, and eating popsicles until your tongue turned red? That’s the emotion Little Fawn tries to capture.

In a world that is moving at high speeds, we love making clothes that let girls be little. Our clothing is designed to give kids the freedom to explore and play, while still being comfy. There are no worries about clothes being scratchy or getting in the way of the fun. It’s about practical luxury and inspired design. We love to mix colors, patterns, prints, and textures. The results are unmistakably Little Fawn.

At the same time, we want to give kids quality. Quality matters to us – and it matters to you as a parent. Our super comfy, super soft clothing is made to be long-lasting and durable.

At Little Fawn, it’s all about keeping a little girl young and carefree. Keeping her youthful, spinning, and twirling! A little girl should be happy, and the clothing she wears should bring her happiness.

 

Ways to Enjoy Summer Like a Kid Again

Jennifer RinggerComment

Summer is in full swing and before long the school bell will be ringing again. Lazy days in the park, picnics with family, playing on the beach, or enjoying a quiet evening sipping lemonade should all be on the agenda for summertime. Just because you are an adult with an office job now doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy the summer months like a kid. You can capture some of that summer magic you used to enjoy when you were a kid. Here are some ideas on how to do it.

Play in the sprinkler

Who doesn’t love lounging poolside with a glass of lemonade and a good book? But there’s just something magical about running through a sprinkler. To feel instantly like a kid again, throw on your bathing suit and turn on the hose. If you have little ones in your house, this is a great family activity too.

Camp in your backyard

You don’t have to go far in order to enjoy a good campout. Invite your friends over for a sleepover and go all out. Stock up on your favorite snacks, bring extra pillows, and enjoy some bonding time. If there’s bad weather, bring your camping trip indoors.

Go on a picnic

Go to a park, lay down a blanket, and open your picnic basket. Share a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with your friends or take your lunch break in the park. Don’t forget the watermelon slices. The instant outdoor lounging is just an added bonus.

Swing on the swings

While you’re at the park, head over to the playground and swing on the swingset. Have a contest with your BFF to see who can go the highest. You’ll instantly be transported back to elementary school.

Embrace your inner artist

Grab a bucket of chalk and head outside to make a sidewalk masterpiece. Let your imagination go! If you don’t have an outdoor space, get a coloring book. You’d be surprised at how relaxing coloring is and how much it makes you long for those summer days when you didn’t have a care in the world.

Whether you’re a grown up missing the long summer days of your youth or you’re a mom looking for ways to entertain your kids until school starts back up again, try some of these ideas to reconnect with your childhood.

Have the best summer ever! 

Getting to Know Little Fawn Clothing

Jennifer RinggerComment

Some years ago, in 2009, two cousins decided they wanted to start a business venture together. Six years later, in 2015, Little Fawn Clothing was born. The Little Fawn brand, like its name, has a flavor and style all its own. From its very conception, Little Fawn has been about children…playful, active, vibrant, and always changing. The brand exudes fun, fresh, playful, active, and a wholesome perspective of the world.

Those who have discovered Little Fawn Clothing already have come to love the playful and unique children’s clothing designs. For those who are just getting to know the brand, it’s time to learn more about Little Fawn Clothing and the inspiration behind the brand from this Q&A with the company’s designer.

Question: Who/what is your inspiration for Little Fawn?

Answer: The inspiration for Little Fawn comes from my mom and my grandmother. My mom is the one who taught me how to sew.

I’m also inspired by my young niece, Eliza. She said a dress isn’t a dress unless she can see it twirl. The Eliza dress was named after my niece.

Question: Why is it important to you that your clothing is made in the USA?

Answer: We are a family business and we want to support family-owned businesses. We love the factory we partner with and want to support them. We especially love that this factory is owned by two brothers because family is so important to us. Most factories in the United States have gone out of business now because of manufacturing being sent overseas. We want to keep this factory, that we love, in business.

Question: Why did you decide to start Little Fawn?

Answer: My cousin and I wanted to partner on a project. In 2009, we started talking about business ideas. It took us a few years to develop our ideas and get the foundation in place. Now, we’re so excited to share Little Fawn, our idea that started forming over 6 years ago, with the world.

Question: What is your design philosophy?

Answer: I want Little Fawn clothing to last so I design to have the clothing last. Our children’s clothes are built to last in both styling and materials. It’s about practical luxury and inspired design.

We love to mix colors, patterns, prints, and textures. The results are unmistakably Little Fawn. We do this so you can enjoy an exuberant mix of color and pattern.

Question: Do you have any advice for other entrepreneurs?

Answer: First, you have to have passion. Sewing is my passion and I still sew all of the samples for Little Fawn from my home in San Francisco. It’s my love for sewing that connects me to this project. You will work ridiculously hard so if you don’t have passion, you won’t be excited for the work. However much time you think you’re going to spend on your new business, double that time.

At Little Fawn Clothing, it’s about more than simply dressing our children. We believe the ordinary just won’t do. When you want your little one to stand out in beautiful, unique clothing, Little Fawn is your choice. 

From the Design Studio: Inspiration

Jacob KopenheferComment

Inspiration is key to so many aspects of life. From finding the perfect shade to paint your living room walls to finding the perfect career. It all takes a willingness to be inspired. Open eyes, open heart, and finally a bit of patience is often required to let inspiration flow.

At Little Fawn Clothing our design team is inspired by many ideas, thoughts, images, and life moments. While the inspiration can evolve, shaped gradually from many different influences, the origin is almost always traceable to a few common sources. We find fresh ideas and inspiring thoughts through music, old movies and pictures, and our families - specifically all of the adorable kids that surround us.

For the upcoming Fall/Winter 2015 season our creative process relied heavily on inspiration from our families. As a team we sat down and talked about the qualities we love most about the wonderful children in our lives. One niece is just a bundle of giggles and smiles, often bursting into an impromptu dance with no reason other than loving life and just being too happy to hold still. Another niece is a gorgeous dancer who conveys grace both on and off the stage. And a little cousin is the most adventurous explorer who cannot get enough of examining everything in the world around him.

As we talked about the wonderful qualities each of these kids possessed, we started to get a good idea of the design direction we wanted to go. After discussing a few ideas, we landed on an overall theme for the season that would serve as our muse as we developed each design. With those qualities as our foundation, we rounded out the designs by looking through a lot of images (…thank you, Pinterest, where would we be without you!?!...) and collected the images we found to be a visual definition of our theme.

My favorite image is of a calm forest of aspen trees that has shed their leaves for the fall leaving a blanket of vibrant orange on the forest floor. There is no violence, pollution, judgment or danger. I imagine this as a place where kids play carefree. I see it as a place where they jump into piles of leaves. A place where they sit on a cozy blanket and have a picnic with those they love. A place where their families can sit quietly and reflect on all of the beauties this world wants to show us but we are often to harried to see.

We let the childhood qualities, in culmination with the images, guide us as we chose the fabrics and trims that would best tell the season’s story. If we’ve done our job right you will be able to judge which designs are the graceful dancer, the silly wiggle worm, and the precocious explorer.

Our goal is to have our stories and designs inspire you to create long-lasting family memories. Have that picnic in the forest, even if the forest is your own apartment. Create that safe and caring environment where not only memories are cultivated but children also. Respect, kindness, and love is the sun, soil, and rain that transforms the seed of a child into the most desirable fruit of humanity.  

Inspiration is all around us, just open your eyes and look at this amazing world! Find a quiet spot and write down what adventures you want for your family. When you look for inspiration it’s hard to miss.

 

5 Fashion Tips that Will Never Go Out of Style

Jennifer RinggerComment

“Fashions fade, style is eternal.” – Yves Saint Laurent

You’ve probably heard the above quote – and for good reason. The statement is absolutely true. Following trends and looking for the latest “fashions” might be fun, but finding the styles that stand the test of time are the best investment you can make for your wardrobe. There’s a reason classic fashion icons like Marilyn Monroe, Coco Chanel, and Audrey Hepburn are still looked up to today as fashion mavens. These women weren’t victims of the latest fashion; but rather, they understood basic, indisputable fashion rules and how to make them work for their own personal style.

Let’s take a look at five fashion tips that will never go out of style.

1.       The Little Black Dress

If we learned anything from watching “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” it’s that the Little Black Dress is a closet staple for every woman. When Audrey Hepburn donned the iconic Givenchy dress, the LBD suddenly became a must for women everywhere. And it hasn’t gone out of style since.

2.       Embrace Your Differences

Cindy Crawford’s mole, Madonna’s gap teeth, and Cher’s nose are all physical traits that many may find unattractive. But what these women did was own their differences – each becoming style icons in their own way. Coco Chanel once said, “In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different.” The key to success in almost every area of life is to be different, contrary to what we’re taught in high school. This is true in fashion and everywhere else in life.

3.       The Simple White Tee

This classic, American favorite can do no wrong. Pair a white tee with denim jeans or dress it up with a blazer and a statement necklace. Wear as a layering piece under other items, like button-down shirts, sweaters, or a jean jacket. The white t-shirt is a fashion staple and won’t be going anywhere anytime soon.

4.       Keep it Minimal

Minimalism first came on the fashion scene in the 1960s when French designers Andre Courreges and Pierre Cardin made mod shift dresses. In the 1990s, Miuccia Prada brought the clean lines and simple shapes back into fashion, which were welcome after the shoulder pads and big hair of the ‘80s. Fortunately, minimalism is a look that stays popular throughout the decades. Clean lines and functionality have always been the hallmarks of American style. 

5.       A Smile is Your Best Accessory

If the fashion and beauty icons of the past could teach us only one thing it would be that a smile is your best accessory. All the clothes and jewelry in the world mean absolutely nothing if you aren’t showing your beautiful smile. Love yourself, be confident, smile, laugh, and don’t take life too seriously. This is the secret to lasting beauty.

At Little Fawn Clothing, we strive to create statement pieces that will stand the test of time. We’ve looked to these fashion icons of the past to bring beautiful, boutique clothing to your little ones.  Our clothing, paired with your daughter’s smile and confidence, will make the fashion statement you’re looking to create. We know that all of the designer-inspired looks and cute girly clothes mean nothing without your daughter and her unique style. 

 

Introducing: the Norma Skirt and the Story Behind It

Seth JeppesenComment

I had made many memories with my grandmother and had the privilege of learning the art of fashion and clothing from both her and my mother. They instilled a passion and skill in me that has led me to my successful career in fashion design. I love my job and love what I do. On a daily basis, I live in San Francisco and design for a big-name label, but my passion and my heritage lies here in my personal project, Little Fawn Clothing.

10 Things You Want Your Daughter to Know

Jennifer RinggerComment

Being a mother comes with ups and down, triumphs and disappointments, joy and tears. Being a mother to a daughter comes with another set of challenges. We’ve gathered some of the best advice for raising daughters and have come up with the Top 10 things you will want your daughter to know.

1.       Scissors are used for cutting paper, not your hair. And never use scissors to cut your own bangs.

2.       Make friends. Your girlfriends will lift you up and keep you sane on days when you think you’re going crazy. Friendships and memories will last a lifetime. Keep good friends forever.

3.       Date the nerds. It might not seem cool now, but you’ll thank mom for this advice later. Nerds are cool.

4.       Your worth does not come from the number on the scale. You are loved more than you will ever know and that number on the scale does not define you. There has never been, nor will there ever be, another you.

5.       Be the best you. Get out and meet new people. Listen. Be kind. Share your spirit with those around you.

6.       Call your mom. Mom will always be there. Don’t forget about her as you get older and begin your own life.

7.       Never stop playing. You’ll grow up and get a job. You’ll probably get married and have your own family. You’ll become a grownup, but that doesn’t mean you need to stop playing. Enjoy every moment of life!

8.       Learn to use jumper cables. And while you’re at it, learn to change a flat tire too.

9.       If you ask a man, “What are you thinking?” he’ll likely reply “Nothing.” And when he does, he means it. Men are much more simple than most women believe them to be.

10.   If you’re going through a hard time, your mother has probably been through it too. Ask for her advice. She got through it and so will you.

Little Fawn girls are strong, beautiful, and inspiring. We are so blessed to have good mothers, wives, sisters, and daughters to call our friends. What advice would you add to our list?
