San Diego x Waylon and Zeke

Chrissy (@chrissyjpowers) and her two sons, Waylon (5 yo) and Zeke (21 mo) share their seaside adventures in San Diego.

What are your favorite spots in your neighborhood?

We love going to South Oceanside and visiting all the awesome shops and coffee bars! Captain's Helm is amazing for vintage and resale finds as well as the best chai lattes around. Revolution Roasters is a hip coffee joint, and All Ye Citizens and Rais Case are my favorites to shop for unique gifts. 

If it is a restaurant/bakery/cafe, what is the must-try on the menu?

Captain's Grounds has the best iced Chai Lattes and donuts for the kiddos, and Revolution Roasters has bomb avocado toast. 

What are your favorite things to do at this location?

Walk around, chat with friends, shop for unique items, drink coffee and then head to the park or beach. 

What makes this location unique to your neighborhood?

Everyone is so friendly and creative! I think this part of town is so unique and funky because of everyone; it's a bunch of young families doing their own creative thing.

Lastly, how do you like the Kira Kids pieces?

Love them! Waylon calls it his surfer shirt, and the pants are so comfy and fun for summer!

Malibu Beach x Paxton Beau

Kira Kids

Larissa of ( @paxton.beau) took us on a road trip to the beaches of Malibu for our latest Mini Explorers feature! 

 

She explains, "Pax loves the beach more than anything and happily spends hours playing at it! While we live right by the ocean on the east coast, we enjoyed taking him to the beaches in Malibu on our latest vacation where we happened to meet the cutest puppy!"

 

Kira Kids
Usually our dog Baloo joins us at the beach so Pax was happy to find a fill-in pup! For anyone who is visiting the area I would highly recommend El Matador beach, which has some amazing rock formations that make great little play caves and tunnels for kids!

 

Kira Kids
The beach looks stunning and was one of my favorites! We love our Kira Kids pieces for their great quality and style! The muscle tank is too cute on Pax (and so soft!).

Park Slope, Brooklyn x Edith and Lilah

Kira Kids, Park Slope, Brooklyn

Ana Fritsch raises her two daughters Edith (5) and Lilah (3) in Park Slope, a beautiful neighborhood in Brooklyn, NY. 

"We love Park Slope for its great schools, tree-lined streets, and quintessential brownstone stoops that we sit on all summer long doing sidewalk chalk and chasing down Mr. Softee ice cream trucks," Ana describes.

Kira Kids - Park Slope, Brooklyn

What are your favorite spots in the neighborhood? 

"Our new favorite spot in the neighborhood is Nail Project. This new nail salon is so cute inside and the staff is just the best with the girls. It also happens to be right next door to our favorite pizza place, Da Nonna Rosa. Most Fridays after school, the girls and I go in for mani/pedis and then meet my husband for pizza after he gets off work. 

The dried flower wall and pink velvet pedicure chairs are so dreamy. I'm a total "girl's girl" so having two daughters who enjoy doing "girly" stuff like this is so fun. I feel like it's one of those things they might remember one day when they're 16 and having a bad day. They might just want that comfort they felt when they were little and they might ask me, 'hey Mom, can we go get our nails done and then eat pizza?' That would totally melt my heart."

Kira Kids - Park Slope, Brooklyn

How do you like your Kira Kids pieces? 

"We love Kira Kids! My girls have always had at least one piece from each season for as long as I can remember. We love the fun doodle style prints and how soft they are. It's so easy to dress up the pieces with a cool leather jacket but also be totally comfortable going to go play and get dirty in Prospect Park."

Downtown Cincinnati x Wyatt and Rowan

Kira Kids, Spring/Summer 2017

Katie (@sycamorekate) and her sons Wyatt (4.5 years) and Rowan (20 months) love exploring the Findlay Market in Cincinnati's revitalized Over-the-Rhine neighborhood. We cover their latest exploration in their favorite Spring Kira outfits! 

Kira Kids, Spring/Summer 2017

What are your favorite spots in your neighborhood?

Our family lives in downtown Cincinnati! Riding the streetcar to our city's historic Findlay Market is one of our favorite things to do on the weekends. This indoor/outdoor farmers' market is full of local produce, exotic meats, hand -ground spices, craft beers, and yummy treats - truly something for everyone! Our kids always ask for an authentic Belgium waffle from A Taste of Belgium, they make them right in front of you and are served warm! So delicious!
 

Kira Kids, Spring/Summer 2017

What are your favorite things to do here? 


Findlay Market is a treat for the senses and we are always sure to start our visits with a slow lap around the market, saying hello to our neighbors and taking in the season's local offerings. We will then typically grab lunch (and in the summer, a local beer in the Biergarten) before grabbing our groceries. And with two active little boys in tow, there's no way we can leave before hitting up the playground! It makes for a perfect outing; both productive and fun!

Kira Kids, Spring/Summer 2017

What makes this location unique to your neighborhood?

Findlay Market is located in Cincinnati's revitalize Over-the-Rhine neighborhood and is truly one-of-a-kind! Of course today many cities have open-air markets but considering Findlay first opened in 1855 it is truly a historic gem (it was even added to the National Registrar of Historic Places in 1972). It is colorful and vibrant, with such a beautiful, diverse energy. The market is committed to empowering local farmers and artisans, it brings people together and encourages human connection. What's not to love?!

Kira Kids, Spring/Summer 2017

Lastly, what do you think about the new Kira collection?

Our Kira Kids pieces are perfect! The fun prints are so cute and unique, but the clothes are also soft and fit comfortably, a must for two little boys on the move! We love to mix-and-match the pieces all year long!

Phoenix x Imogen and Loyal

Imogen (3) and Loyal (2) are two siblings from Phoenix, AZ who love all things sweet and yummy. They took us on a trip to their favorite local shop called "Nami," where they fill up on donuts and soft-serve! 

Sarah Rhodes, their mama, tell us: "We are super fortunate to live in a very walkable neighborhood, with lots of cool little locally owned spots nearby! One of our favorites is called Nami (short for tSoynami). It's a vegan place that offers soft-serve, baked treats, and a coffee bar! Since we have a dairy allergy among us, this place is like heaven. And their donuts are amazing!"

Their favorite things off the menu? Blueberry fritters and also the soft-serve with cherry pie toppings!

Kira Kids, Space Onesie

Oh, and we are blushing! Sarah raves about Kira Kids: "For starters, how mean is it that you can't get this Yay sweatshirt in adult sizes!? It's so soft - even after washing, it doesn't pill. It seems to get better with age. Imogen loves it and wears it way too often. Hah! She seriously pulls it out of her drawer to wear every day. I love Kira Kids clothes because they're so cute, but the kids are comfortable playing in them. It's such a fine line to walk - wanting cute clothes for your kids, but wanting them to be practical too, and that's one thing I think Kira Kids does incredibly well. They're long lasting pieces!" Sheesh, thank you, Sarah!

Manhattan, New York City x Olive

Kira Kids, Dylan's Candy Bar

Olive is 3 1/2-years-old and has been wearing Kira Kids since she was a baby! She's made numerous debuts on Kira Kids before and this time, we asked Olive and her sweet mama Mary to take us to their favorite spot in New York. Their choice? Dylan's Candy Bar! The brightly colored interior makes us feel like a kid again!

Kira Kids, Dylan's Candy Bar Kira Kids, Dylan's Candy Bar

"We love doing things that are fun for everyone! Since it's getting cold here, we look for cool things to do inside. Dylan's Candy Bar is awesome because, well, there is every kind of candy imaginable and they have a fun sweets themed restaurant. In the restaurant you can eat in a giant cupcake and watch Charlie and the Chocolate Factory while eating lunch. Perfect place indeed."

The must-try off the menu? The milkshakes. Olive loves them!

San Francisco x Mateo, Luke, Abel and Cole

Kira Kids, San Francisco

Kira Kids, San Francisco

Mateo (7), Luke (5), Abel (3) and Cole (1), adorable siblings from the San Francisco Bay Area. When the sun's out and the weather is nice, they take the ferry from Oakland's Jack London Square to the Ferry Building in SF. It's the most delightful way to get into the city from the East Bay. They make sure to get a seat all the way at the top to watch the crash of the boat's wake and catch the beautiful view of the Bay Bridge when they pass under it.

Kira Kids, San Francisco Kira Kids, San Francisco

At the Ferry Building, they always grab a bite at Gott's Roadside (ahi poke crispy tacos!) and have Humphry Slocombe ice cream for dessert. They love people (and seagull) watching along the dock.

A ten minute walk down from the Ferry Building is the Exploratorium, a science and art lab with interactive exhibits. The boys love running across the fog bridge exhibit.

    Their mama Naomi (Instagram: @naomipq) says, "Kira Kids clothes are fantastic. We love the fun prints and soft fabric. The Camera Print Dress is so darling. The Tacolicious long sleeve gets a lot of giggles too. Everything is just so cute and thoughtfully designed without all the bells and whistles. "

    Oakland x Finn, Stone and Indio

    Kira Kids, Boys Clothing

    On a day off, my boys Finn, Stone and Indio and I love to go exploring around Oakland and our neighboring cities to try new things. We call it adventuring, and it's our favorite thing to do. More often than not, we hit up Trouble Coffee in west Oakland for a Lavender Latte or freshly-squeezed juice for the boys before we set out. They love the vibe of Trouble; the coffee is great and there's the cutest little piano outside they love to play. Then once the caffeine has kicked in, we head out to explore!

     

    We went to Alameda to try out the Alameda Skatepark we've been dying to visit. The skatepark was built on a former Navel base and has awesome views of the city and the docks. It really is beautiful spot to hang out. We had an amazing time as you can see from the photos!

    Thousand Oaks, CA x Sylvester and Reva

    Kira Kids, Siblings in Thousand Oaks

     For weeks, Sylvester and Reva (almost 7 and 4 years old) have been counting down the days to their birthdays!  Since welcoming their new baby brother into the world, these siblings have even more reasons to celebrate in their neighborhood of Thousand Oaks, California! 

    We adore their mother Madelon, who kindly shared her favorite local spots to visit!

    Kira Kids, Siblings in Thousand Oaks Kira Kids, Siblings in Thousand Oaks

    "We love to go outside, to explore California as much as possible. We are originally from Europe and when we decided to move we promised each other to go out and see as much from this beautiful environment as possible! 

     

    Kira Kids, Siblings in Thousand Oaks

    Wildwood Park is one of our favorite parks because it is so close and it keeps taking your breath away. It doesn't matter how often you go. It feels like you reached the end of the world!

    The kids love collecting stones, running around, climbing on everything, and getting dirty. 

    Kira Kids, Siblings in Thousand Oaks Kira Kids, Siblings in Thousand Oaks

    Besides Wildwood Park, these two also love to go to Zuma beach in Malibu at the end of the day. They'll play for an hour or two and eat fish at Sunset Restaurant afterwards. They have the best view on the sunset. 

    We also have year passes to Underwood Farms where we visit to pick strawberries, see animals, and play. Of course, we go there to pick a pumpkin around Thanksgiving and find Easter eggs at Easter. It's a great place for kids and I still secretly hope to run into Kim and Kanye there one day..."

    Kira Kids, Siblings in Thousand Oaks

    "I love Kira Kids! They are organic, have great quality, are soft, and most importantly... really made for kids! Their prints are fun! In the end, my children decide what they wear (and they're picky), and they often choose to wear Kira Kids!" - Madelon

    Olvera Street, Kira Kids

    Meet the cutest two-year-old duo in the City of Angels: Ever and Vida! We've been lucky enough to watch them grow from babies to L.A.'s trendiest toddlers! Their moms, Patty and Natalie definitely know the in's an out's of the city, and one of their favorite places is Olvera Street in Downtown Los Angeles!

    "It's such a fun mini adventure at Olvera Street. It's chock full of color, culture and yummy eats! We love to eat at Cielito Lindo! They have the best taquitos in town. Before leaving, we always make sure to grab a churro at Mr. Churro. They stuff them with different fillings, such as strawberry or caramel. So yummy! There's also shops on Olvera Street that have beautiful clothes, decor, art, and toys.

    We love the trip from Olvera street back to Pasadena! Going through Union station and riding the Metro is such a fun adventure for the kids!"
