On June 19, we spotted Selma Blair and her little guy shopping at The Grove in Los Angeles.
And the denim-clad duo looked adorable, especially Arthur who sported a straw fedora, green graphic tee and faded jeans.
But the almost 2-year-old’s fun Chooze Scout slip-ons (now $39, originally $49) are what really caught our eye.
Upon close inspection, we noticed each shoe has a different pattern (guitars on one and skulls on the other).
Apparently, Chooze kicks all come in mismatched yet complementary prints for kids who like to mix things up.

Kim Kardashian may not be able to wear all the trendier fashions she loves now that she’s in her third trimester, but that doesn’t mean she can’t spice things up with luxe accessories.
On June 6, the reality star posted a photo on Instagram of herself wearing a simple white button down with Dannijo’s Germaine ($995) and Morgan ($745) necklaces stacked together before heading to an interview. Her beautiful neck candy was so glittery she added another pic, along with the caption: “Necklace sparkling on my face #LoveDannijoJewelry.”

We loved her bold layered jewelry look so much – we have a hard time resisting pretty bling! – that we had to try to recreate it. Unfortunately, our budget isn’t as big as Kim’s but luckily we were able to find something pretty close. Not only is this rhinestone bib necklace from Dorothy Perkins just as sparkly, but it’s only $27.

Jamie-Lynn Sigler is counting down the days until she welcomes her baby boy in August.
And what better way for the stylish mom-to-be to pass the time than by designing accessories that honor a mother’s joy.
Sigler and her CJ Free Jewelry partner Holly Freeman teamed up with The Pump Station and MomciergeLA to debut the newest addition to their collection: the Real Joy bracelet ($25).
“This is a very special time in my life and I wanted to create a piece for mothers (and fathers!) to celebrate their bundles of joy, during pregnancy and beyond,” Sigler tells PEOPLE.
Seems like the actress’s hard work paid off. Crafted from silk twine and adorned with mini sterling silver beads, the thoughtful accessory is both chic and wearable.
It’s also available in pink, blue and green – for those parents keeping their baby’s sex a surprise!

Catherine McCord has had a lot on her plate – figuratively and literally! – since debuting her family-friendly recipes website, Weelicious, five years ago.
Not only is she busy running behind her two adorable school-aged kids (Kenya, 6, and Chloe, 4), but the Institute for Culinary Education alum recently released her second book, Weelicious Lunches: Think Outside the Lunch Box, this fall.
McCord gave us a sneak peek and from stuffed pizza rolls to chocolaty vanilla wafers, it’s chock full of yummy dishes your kids will love to pack up for school.
Even better? To help you get a jumpstart on making healthy and delicious lunches for the tots, the meal planning guru is sharing some of her fave recipes. Check them out below:
Asparagus Ribbon Salad: This is a great example of how to get your kids involved in preparing their own food. Give them a great vegetable peeler and let them shave the asparagus into gorgeous ribbons.
Carrot Hummus Sushi Sandwiches: These are fun, colorful and bite-size for small hands. Be creative with your fillings! The carrot and hummus combo packs some great nutrients.
Baked Blueberry Doughnuts: You can use fresh or frozen berries to make this delicious treat. If you opt for frozen, use the same amount as indicated in the recipe, keep them frozen when you mix them, and very gently fold them into the batter to avoid bleeding.
Green Machine Pizza: Making pizza has become a weekly Sunday night ritual in my house. The kids love to roll up their sleeves, knead the dough and put their toppings on. Sure sauce and cheese are a great combo, but this one is a protein powerhouse and packs some serious flavor!
Wheat Germ Parmesan Crackers: My readers are always looking for fun, easy snack ideas that can last a couple of packed lunches. This recipe freezes beautifully. Just cut out the shapes you desire (I like using mini cookie cutters) and freeze before baking or after baking and let them thaw out on the counter when you’re ready to devour.
Matzo Chicken Tenders: The matzo gives these chicken tenders a crunchy coating. Pair it with your child’s favorite dip for a fun, interactive lunch.
Once Prince George starts making more public appearances, he’ll need lots of chic duds.
So it’s a good thing Joules recently debuted an adorable Royal Heir capsule collection, featuring a cute graphic of a crowned hare, that is more than fit for a mini prince or princess.
With the royal baby in mind, the British-based brand (which was founded in 1999) created four majestic styles that we can’t help drooling over.
For boys, you’ll find a 2 piece set ($51) and long-sleeve footie ($38) in rich red and and navy hues.
While pretty pinks and floral prints cover the peplum top and leggings set ($51) and pajamas ($38) for girls.
Luckily, the company makes clothing for kids up to 12 years-old, so when Prince William and Duchess Kate‘s little guy gets older, he’ll still have loads of stylish fashions to choose from.

While we were still drooling over the brand’s gorgeous new Cosmic collection (Aries!), Charlotte Olympia slipped in six playful (and adorable!) designs for girls.
Aptly timed to designer Charlotte Dellal‘s third pregnancy, the Incy line (get it? Incy, Wincy, Spider) features everything from velvet Kitty and Spider flats to leopard print booties that range from $125 to $395.
So now fashion-obsessed moms can match their daughters or sons (seriously, how cute is this pic Dellal posted?) for every occasion.
“I always thought I’d design little shoes for little people as soon as I had a girl,” Dellal told Vogue UK.
“However with two boys now and a third child on the way, I decided to finally launch Incy regardless. Maybe I’ll have a girl this time!”
Okay, we admit, these pint-size shoes are pretty pricey. But the company is donating 10 percent of the first month’s sales to Art Start, a N.Y.C. that helps nurture at-risk youth through creative workshops. Plus, each pair comes with a coloring book and crayons. And they’re really, really pretty.
Available now, you’ll find the collection exclusively online and at certain Charlotte Olympia boutiques.
It’s not often that we highlight a celeb dad’s style, but after seeing this adorable photo of Wiz Khalifa kissing his son Sebastian (a.k.a. Baby Bash) we couldn’t help but notice the rapper’s cool sweatshirt and hat.
Well-known for his colorful and interesting fashions, the new dad sported the Waves Hoodie ($80) and the already sold-out All Over Ghost Bucket Hat by Pink Dolphin, a hip L.A.-based streetwear brand that specializes in unique designs.
The clothing line is so fun, we wouldn’t be surprised if they launched a kids collection. How cute would it be to see Wiz and Sebastian could dress up in matching looks? Talk about aww-worthy!

J.Crew is giving back!
Now when you shop their classic yet modern kids clothing, you can actually help out a good cause.
The retailer just launched its new Garments for Good program, teaming up with Friends of the High Line for a super cute collection of tees, onesies, sweatshirts, totes and charm bracelets ($15 – $78).
Each piece features a design inspired by the High Line, an elevated freight railway in N.Y.C. that was saved from demolition and transformed into a beautiful public park.
Added bonus: 100 percent of the proceeds will be donated to the non-profit to help keep the space clean for all visitors.
“We hope New Yorkers will wear these shirts with pride, knowing that every purchase connects them to our city’s creative energy and the High Line,” says Joshua David, co-founder of Friends of the High Line.
“We commend J.Crew for utilizing their creative resources to support a cause that is such an integral part of the community.”
