Preview: Stroll in Style

Functional and stylish. That’s what our semi-annual Stroll in Style event is all about. When you’re walking down the street — little one in toe — you should look chic. Period. So we’ve found strollers, carriers, diaper bags (and beyond) that aren’t a fashion flop, plus a monitor that lets you watch your baby while you run errands. Our senior buyer (and mom) Melissa tells us her five favorites, all of which will be on sale starting Wednesday, June 5.

1. Bugaboo Donkey
“I love the Bugaboo Donkey because it’s basically a “one stroller fits all.” Whether your looking for a stroller for one kid or two, you name it, this stroller has it.”

Jacadi: Dress Your Cutie for Summer

As a style-conscious mom of three kids of varying ages (1, 12 and 19), I’ve seen and bought it all when it comes to children’s fashion. But I’m also cost-conscious, so I love chic brands like Jacadi that make high-quality, classic pieces that I can pass down or on to friends. And I’m in good company: celeb moms including Jennifer Garner and Katie Holmes are also fans of this French-based clothier. From striped sailor rompers and plaid frocks to polka dot sun hats and polo shirts, above are a few of my picks from Gilt’s sale. Make sure you’re there Monday, May 13 at noon ET!
