Giveaway! Falling into Style with See Kai Run

Toddler fall style, desert boots, matching siblings | Happy Grey Lucky

September: probably my favourite month of the year. When the air gets crisper, the leaves turn red, and out come the boots and scarves. That and these two little hooligans of mine are born in September. Two very special reasons to celebrate this month! Nicolas turned one last week and Isabelle turns 3 next Thursday! (Insert party popper emoji but also crying face emoji because where oh where has the time gone?!?)

Side note: I think December’s pretty cool too. Christmas, those first magical days of snow when you’re not yet over the cold weather. And the other half of our little family’s birthdays are in December. (Evidently I’m biased towards birthday months.)

But back to fall. My Pinterest style boards are about 90% fall clothing so clearly I’m more than a little obsessed. Chunky knits, plaid, denim on denim, cozy scarves, ankle booties, you name it. And all of that in miniature on these two cuties? Yes, please!

Talking about miniature clothing, how adorable are these matching Chukka boots? Before I had kids I totally rolled my eyes at moms who matched their kiddos but it’s pretty clear from my Instagram account that I’ve changed my tune on that one. (Exhibit A. And B. And C… you get the drift.) When it’s done in a more subtle way I think it ups the cuteness factor big time. (That coming from a mom of a boy and a girl. I’m sure if we have a third baby down the road I’ll be dressing the two boys / girls in head-to-toe matching outfits and I’ll think it’s hands down the cutest thing since “Charlie bit me“.)

When I’m picking out shoes for Isabelle, I always try and keep them as gender neutral as possible. With clothing I’ll go more girly (even if pink is still rare) but I want shoes to last through multiple kids. As much as I’m sure Nicky can rock hot pink glitter-covered sneakers, I’m just not that brave. Yet. That and gender-neutral happens to be more in line with my style.

Quality and comfort are super important to me when it comes to footwear. These little feet are running around all day and I want to make sure that their shoes are supporting their growing feet in the best way possible. I’d much rather splurge on a few pairs of quality shoes that go with everything than have double as many but have them be half as comfy (or only last half as long). For Isabelle we’ve always had just three or four pairs of shoes at any given time. Sneakers, sandals, and rain boots for warmer months. And swap out the sandals for two pairs of boots. One pair of super warm, waterproof boots for our Canadian winters plus a three-season boot that can be dressed up or down.

Which brings me to these super adorable boots from See Kai Run. We got them in August already and, despite felt temperatures nearing the 40s, Isabelle wanted to wear them alllll the time. (I usually tried to talk her out of it but, you know, stubborn toddler and the whole “pick your battles” thing). I totally get it though. They’re so soft and the wide opening combined with the velcro tabs means toddlers can easily put them on themselves. Isabelle isn’t much of a do-it-yourself girl when it comes to getting dressed (she’d prefer someone help her) but with these she always insists on putting them on herself. And judging by the speed at which Nicolas zooms around in these, I’d say he finds them pretty comfy too.

Okay, enough with the rambling and onto the good stuff! I love these shoes so much that I’ve partnered with See Kai Run to give a pair of baby / toddler / kids shoes from their shop to one lucky winner! And girl mamas, make sure to check out the boys section too because they have lots of amazing gender neutral options (like these Desmond boots).

My little boy turns one this month too. I feel like someone has pressed the fast forward button on this year! I love autumn, but I’m hoping the weather holds out for a couple more days as I’ve booked a bouncy castle for the birthday celebrations. We can’t wait!

Happy September. Your babies are gorgeous x

Happy birthday to your baby boy! Did he love the bouncy castle? And absolutely agree with you about that darn fast forward button. I can’t quite believe Nicky is one either.

These boots are so practical and adorable, thanks for sharing! We’ve been looking for a great boot to transition into fall with. My favorite thing about Fall is all the family time and fun fall festivals, oh and apple picking, and leaves changing colors, and bonfires 🙂

Love the festivals so much as well! And all the farm visits, picking apples + pumpkins, and going for wagon rides. Such a magical time.

Oh so cute!! These shoes look and sound perfect for little feet! Wide opening = less of a fight to get them on, which = one happy mummy!

Shoes that are easy to get one little wriggly feet is absolutely key! So so nice to see you on Saturday – let’s plan that next playdate soon! xx

For me Fall is probably one of the most magical times of the year. Cold but not too cold, the beginning of the holiday season before all of the holiday hustle. Plus cute boots and warmer layers, what’s not to love!

Agree 100% with what you said here. It really is truly magical especially with those changing colours.

Hi Sina!!! Isabelle is looking SO grown up, and looks like she loves being a big sister 😁. Nicholas has more hair than Florence does!! I’d have to say that my favourite thing about fall is the cozy walks among gorgeous colour-changing trees 😊

Sina September 19, 2016 at 10:38 pm

Hi Germaine! So lovely to hear from you. It’s crazy how grown up she is! It happened somewhere around 2.5 so get ready for that with Florence! Also, congrats on baby #2!!! I bet Florence is super excited to become a big sister 🙂

My most favorite thing about fall is the smell and feel of the crisp cool breezes that are beginning to fill the air.

The fresh fall air is one of my favourites as well! Loving it especially this year after that humid summer

Hi Sina and family. I love the Fall – being able to switch of that hydro sucking air conditioner and breath fresh air again, ahhhh. I love those little boots your kiddies are wearing and will check them out for my grandkiddies. So easy to put on, I think they’d love them.

Hi Pat! Good to hear from you! How are you doing?
And yes, turning off the A/C is so nice! If only that in between period of not needing A/C or heat would be longer.
