Memorial Day is right around the corner!  In a short week from now, refrigerators will be stocked, families and friends with gather, and the beaches will be packed to celebrate the day off in honor of all those who served and sacrificed their lives for our freedom.  I can almost smell the grills being fired up and hear the laughter of children running through freshly mowed lawns.  Flags will fly high and families will wear their red, white, and blue as a symbol of appreciation to all those brave men and women who gave their lives.

When asked about family traditions and Memorial Day celebrations, SGK owner and designer, Megan Hewitt, had this to share:
“Both my mother’s father and father’s father served proudly in World War II.  While they did not die in service, I still take time on Memorial Day to remember their sacrifice and those who fought alongside them for our freedom.  We typically spend Memorial Day going out in the boat and ending the day grilling with our family, but I still like to take the time to explain to my girls the importance of the day and why our country takes the day ‘off’ to remember.”

SGK always incorporates red, white, and blue clothing into the spring/summer line because so many families like to have options for their children to wear on this special holiday.   Check out these collections for your little ones:

If you follow Shrimp and Grits Kids on Instagram and Facebook, you have been lucky enough to catch a few glimpses of our Spring Pop Up Line.  Filled with fun fabrics and fresh new smocking designs, this line is much anticipated by our customers each season!  This spring’s pop up line is no disappointment and we cannot wait to share with you all of the vintage-inspired fabrics and designs, mixed with traditional smocking favorites, to help you complete your little ones summer wardrobe!

Megan Hewitt, the owner and designer of SGK, recently shared with me how the pop up line came about and what she thinks about this current line.  Check out our question and answer below:

Why do you do a supplemental line?

I design a pop up line to keep it interesting!  By April and May, we have all gotten a little stagnant and we need some fresh ideas to get our customers excited again.

Do you have a supplemental line each season?

Yes, I usually do a small pop up line each season to keep it interesting.

What inspired this particular line?

We were all in love with the diaper sets and pinafore sets this Spring, so I decided to do a couple more of them in fun prints.

What are a couple of your favorite pieces from this line?

I adore the aqua floral diaper set and pinafore.  My faves by far!

Based on the response from our followers, Megan is not alone!  The aqua floral sets have received a great response and are on the website now for pre order, along with a few other collections.  All items will ship the first week of May and we urge you to get your order in now, instead of waiting, because items will sell out.

Sailfish Collection

The Sailfish collection is perfect for summer days and we just know we will see these pieces in many of your Father’s Day photos!

Anchors Away

Anchors, red check, and sailboats!?!? Yes, please!  Everyone loves a nautical theme and these sets double up as adorable 4th of July options for your little ones!

Vintage inspired big pink floral fabric and big pink checks, coupled with eyelet trim, makes this collection a must have! Just look at the colors!!

Having grown up as an only child, the sibling relationship is something that I have always admired and desperately wanted.   From my point of view, a sibling is a built-in friend who is there to share your deepest secrets, help you with difficult decisions and rocky relationships, and serve as your guide in learning right from wrong.  A sibling is a constant in your life and the one person who understands the depth of your love for your parents and who will understand the depth of your grief when your parents pass away.  A sibling is your person.  A sibling gets you.  Having a sibling makes you a part of a tribe.

Perhaps it goes along with being part of a tribe or the hope to create an identity for their unit that inspires parents to dress their children alike.  Maybe coordinated clothing simply began as a way to create a nice family photo.  Whatever the case, I always love seeing siblings dressed in coordinating outfits and I LOVE that Megan, the owner and designer of Shrimp and Grits Kids, is focused on creating sibling sets each season.  I recently asked Megan to share her creative process when developing coordinating sets for siblings in her line.  This is what she had to say: 

“I always try to design sets that incorporate a girl and a boy coordinating design.  I also like to add an older girl and an older boy option in several styles per season. I know so many mamas like to coordinate the whole family and I try to give them several options.”

Some Shrimp and Grits Kids customers prefer to dress their children exactly the same while others prefer pieces that complement one another.  As family photo sessions, and especially sibling photo sessions, become more and more popular, we continue to see an increase in purchases of sibling sets each season.  Whether you are a parent to all girls, all boys, or some of each, Shrimp and Grits Kids is your one stop to get your little ones completely coordinated!

We adore seeing all of your family photos and how you are matching your children in Shrimp and Grits Kids.  Scroll down to check out one of our favorite sibling photos, along with a few sibling set shots from our Shrimp and Grits Spring 2016 line.

It’s no secret that kids grow fast. In fact, if you’ve ever tried to re-stock a growing child’s wardrobe, you’ll quickly realize that outfits purchased a few short months ago which fit perfectly are now just a hair too short and a little too tight. What’s a parent to do? Continue reading
