Colder weather always inspires us to buy new knit hats and scarves for ourselves, and now that we've discovered New York-based Cabbages & Kings, we're going to do the same for our little ones! The brand, which former model and mom Alexandra Gizela launched last year, focuses on just a few items — scarves (infinity and hooded), leg warmers, and socks — and does them incredibly well. The hand-knit alpaca pieces are all made by Peruvian artisans who live in the Andean Valleys, 11,000 feet above sea level, and fit kids 0-14 years old. All the items feature fun patterns, textures, and colors that feel as great as they look. Check out Cabbages & Kings' gorgeous knit pieces now (and be inspired by the incredible styling!).
Leg warmers are big in lil apparel right now, and a mama who is looking to keep up with the trends while staying eco-friendly can dress her tot up in Dittany Baby "Green" Skid Pants ($12). Made from recycled cotton, these adorable leg warmers will not only keep her legs (and arms) warm, but they'll also protect her knees from rug burns and scuffs while crawling, learning to walk, and playing. Look for them in stores or get a pair online.
Lately we have been wearing leg warmers on our morning trips to the coffee shop, throwing the garment over our bedtime leggings makes us feel like we are getting dressed and has a profond affect on our warm quotient. Leggings themselves aren't warm enough but we admit that before our caffeine getting dressed feels daunting. We may be scaring the cute girls at Marlow and Sons but warmth this cheap is practically a recession special
Last weekend, my friend threw a Sunday Football bash and I asked you to help me find a cute casual look for the festivities. Sure enough, I indulged in sinful cheesy dips and BBQ wings, but no regrets here. That's what exercising is for, right? I had so much fun, I even stopped by my parents' house and joined my dad in watching the evening game.
I started you off with these Falke Striggings Arm Warmers ($29) because they were sporty and cozy. Let's see what you all came up with!

Note the lack of men on the streets these past couple Sundays. Don't worry, it's not you: it's football season. Though I'm a girlie girl at heart, I indulge in a couple pigskin festivities every season. This weekend, my friend's throwing a Sunday Football bash. Tons of cuties will be present, so help me find a cute casual look. No heels, no fluff. All the guys will be glued to the screen, but there's always half-time, right?
I'll start you off with these Falke Striggings Arm Warmers ($29) because they're sporty, cozy, and make for a great ice-breaker. Ready, set, hike!

It's almost too much to ask to cover up those delicious little rolls of dough on baby's legs, but these leg warmers make it worth it. A stay-at-home mom started BabyLegs to make diaper changing a cinch whilst keeping her daughter's legs warm.
BabyLegs legwarmers, $12, come in a variety of colors, adorable designs, and different lengths in case your babe is super long or extra tiny.
Besides loving them for their adorable designs, I am a fan of the cotton warmers because they keep my little one's knees supple and scar-free while she zooms around the house. And, with Old Man Winter knockin' on the door, I might stock up on a few more pairs.
There is perhaps no Winter fashion more fleeting than leg warmers, but that's no reason not to buy a pair! Seriously, these retro cold-weather accessories may be silly, but they are also highly practical for this season's leggings and skinny jeans styles, so why not wear them while they're hot? Just try not to wear your leg warmers at the same time you're sporting a pair of arm warmers.
Alice + Olivia Leg Warmers, $117, available here.
Hearts Leg Warmer, $18, available here.

From wide belts to footless leggings, there's no arguing that 1980s styles are sneaking into the Fall 2006 fashion trends. But seriously, can we really herald the return of leg warmers? For years, fashion magazines have been warning that they might come back into style, and just yesterday, I spotted these Alice & Olivia Leg Warmers for sale here for $117. Though I'd never pay that much for leg warmers, there's just something about this silly fad that makes me want to dress my lower legs in these cozy tubes of warmth. What about you? Love it or hate it?
