Metro Mama & Metro Baby

By Eva Whalen


One day you’re admiring the blue skies and your street’s delicate cherry blossom trees, and the next you’re drenched from head to toe, wondering if the torrential rain will ever cease. Here are some items that will shepherd you and your family through rain and shine during what has (perhaps unfairly) been called the cruelest month: April.

Olive Juice Kids is a thoroughly endearing line and source for unique clothing. There’s a timeless French quality about this well-crafted, elegant brand, and many of the clothes seem almost like movie costumes or vintage children’s pieces, yet they’re modern as well. The shoe offerings from Olive Juice are equally as impressive. Items for budding artists and suggested books are so adorable that you’ll be blinded by cuteness. Olive Juice Kids devotes equal time to impressive boy clothing (something mothers of boys often complain about is a dearth of great boy clothing options), so moms with sons will especially appreciate this line. Peruse their classic pieces for infants, too, at

Raincoats at The Children’s Place are truly swoon-worthy! The subtle graphics and durable, waterproof construction render these coats favorites for years to come. The casual spring and summer lineup for kids is on display at, featuring swimwear, funky footwear, infant and baby clothing, half-off sale items and much more. Take note of the low shipping rates, too.

Refresh your bedding at The Company Store this year for your spring cleaning ritual. The Company Store offers almost everything under the April sun: organic blankets, ultra-soft maternity pillows, fluffy comforters, pillow covers, and an affordable array of sheets, quilts and bed covers. Their spa clothing is well-designed and comfortable, and delivery is free. Check out to shop for children’s clothing, as well as children’s furniture and bedding in the Company Kids section. You can even have your sheets monogrammed.
