Bare Bellies Review {and Giveaway!}

**CONTEST CLOSED**
Bare Bellies is an online boutique that offers tops for stylish kids, ranging from tees to hoodies.  And they even have an organic line!  The business was created by three moms and friends, Katy Strulson, Karen Lindenbaum and Suzanne Aronson.  I found their wonderful shop on Etsy, then discovered that they have their very own and very fun website!

Suzanne told me, "People often ask us when and how we got started, and to this day we can’t remember the exact moment when we decided to do this. We do remember one day when we were doing a little photo shoot with our one year olds and in between shots their shirts were off. One of us said, 'Someone put some shirts on them, their little bellies are bare!' And an idea was started, to create stylish, yet comfortable shirts for our children."

"Bare Bellies is committed to only using the highest quality shirts, and keeping the prints simple and fun. When the company was started, there were only 3 little bellies in the Bare Bellies family and now there are 8, ranging from ages 4 years to 4 months!" 

Suzanne shipped Emma this adorable thermal long-sleeved tee.  It features a distressed chocolate brown star on the front, and the thermal top is comfy and warm.  I love the simplicity of the design.  It gives off that, "stylish without looking like I've tried too hard", kind of vibe.  Casual cool. Do you know what I mean? 

The hoodie zip sweatshirts are new to the store this year; check out the Peace Sign hoodie and the American Flag hoodie, which was inspired by the 2010 Olympics.  Go Team USA!!
