Nesting Instinct

158Birdie Mamas create comfort for their kids, and so can you. Seattleites Alyson Abreu and Cristie Schrader created Nest Children, a timeless line of clothing and accessories for Baby, Toddler, and Mom. The owners say, “Nest’s designs are based on admired contemporary adult styles while taking liberties with color and the playful details that are so endearing about children’s items.” Their signature design, a tunic onesie ($38.00), is fashionable in a Sophisticated Baby way: you can imagine a tiny Mary Tyler Moore might’ve worn it (if she were lucky enough to find it!). Infant cargo pants ($22) give that put-together look to Baby Boy. Toddler favorites include a ruffle tank ($28.00), terry shorts ($24.00), and a clover-print trench coat ($58.00). Despite the clothes’ adorable put-together look, everything is machine washable. The most exciting Nest offering for Mom? The Whipstitch Leather bag with metal hardware ($285), which puts a sleek look on the often-cumbersome diaper bag. Available in a variety of colors, from black-that-matches-everything to fun pool blue, the bag features plenty of pockets, bottle holders, a cell phone pocket, metal footing to keep it upright, and a water-resistant zip-out lining. So hot that Heidi Klum has been spotted wearing it! Smart design and smart looking? Yep. So build your nest, without even searching for sticks.
