Every morning when I wake up, I am ready to live life to the fullest.  I want my kids to share a similar outlook, by observing the world filled with wonderment and awe.  I love that my kids share my Italian heritage along with their dad’s Japanese and German roots.  What a sweet little mix of cultures my children get to embrace.  I do my best as their mom to immerse them in their beautiful ethnicities.  I want them to know who they are and each culture surely deserves to be celebrated.

I am the type of mom who always gets excited at a new exploration for the children.  And when I first moved to San Diego, I was so elated to learn we had a Little Italy.  I immediately enrolled Roman into a mommy and me class, immersing him into the Italian language.  It was a beautiful experience and it was something we did as the older two were in school.

I made beautiful connections with other Italian moms and had lunch together after class each week.  I did this for about 18 months and Roman loved it.  He thrived and the best way to learn about a culture is to dive right into it.JI6A4227 JI6A4223

When it comes to kid fashion, this is exactly what I love about Tea Collection.  They too share a love of being adventurous and passionate about other cultures.  Tea Collection has a story and they share it with the world.  Tea (the drink) is shared in nearly every
culture around the world. Tea (the company) is about sharing their discoveries
and encouraging adventure. What’s not to love about them?  For me, I had the incredible opportunity to have three of my four children featured in their Spring 2016 catalogues.  The theme? Italia!  Could it be more perfect?  I was stoked!  I was beyond stoked, I was jumping on a couch Tom Cruise style.

I was so honored to be part of this experience.  Of course it’s a proud mommy moment to have your kids model, but it was more than that for me.  I was able to show my kids how this company embraces and celebrates so many cultures.  Tea Collection brings worldwide cultures and modern design to children’s fashion.  Twice each year they pack their bags, travel the globe, explore and discover and then bring it all home in original designs that express the spirit of their adventures abroad.  Being an Italian momma, I couldnt be more thrilled than to have my kids part of the Italy 2016 campaign.JI6A8246 JI6A8215 JI6A8128 JI6A8100 JI6A8021

There is so much I love about this company:  From raising a global awareness to different foundations, to celebrating so many cultures and with every step along the way they are looking for ways to give back.  You can read more about that here.  I think it’s fair to say this company has mastered being jet-set global trendsetters!

Design:  Tea uses natural fibers that are made to last.  We have been wearing Tea for the past nine years and I can honestly say I love how their items last wash after wash.  I also love that they make their items with keeping layers in mind so you can use their t shirts, leggings, hoodies, from one season to the next.  Their colors are always vibrant and seriously put a smile on my face when my kids are wearing them.

Here is a peek at my kids in the first of several catalogues for Spring 2016 and some of my favorite Tea Collection designs:IMG_2048 IMG_2051 IMG_2050 IMG_2054 IMG_2049 IMG_2052 IMG_2053Get 10% Off Your First Tea Collection Order with Email Sign-UpIMG_2055
