It’s that wonderful time of year when we get to unpack all of our sweaters, hats and mittens and get ready for another chilly winter – depending on where you live that is. But that doesn’t mean you have to hide your personal style under bulky clothes!
Whether you are on your way to school, lounging at home or hanging out with friends here are some quick style tips to make sure you stand out all season long.
TREND ONE: SMILES
We know one thing for sure, smiles can sure turn any cold day into a happy day! We love the idea of having our Happy Smiles Socks poking out from underneath your winter boots. Elevate your bulky winter boots by adding a little bit of personality to them!
The smiles don’t have to end there. Let your leggings do the talking like our Hi Bye Seamless Leggings and bright purple heart leggings worn by ice skater @Youhaik!
TREND TWO: BRIGHT BAGS
Accessorize with a school bag that stands out in the crowd! We love fun patterns or designs that are totally Instagram worthy! Perfect to add a pop of color to any outfit!
TREND THREE: COLOR!
Winter jackets don’t have to hide your show-stopping outfit. Add pops of color to your snow cold proof outfit with BOLD and FUN accessories like hats and scarves! We love the pop of blue in Sydney’s winter ready outfit!
But what’s most important about winter fashion? Adding your own personal touch! Add whatever you like because fashion is about being you. We want to see how you personalize your outfits season year long. Don’t forget to show us your style with the hashtag #MissMatchedMondays to be featured in one of our blogs.
We’ve been hard at work brainstorming, creating, illustrating and designing our latest collections and we’re feeling so excited, we just had to give you a little sneak peek! Our Fall ’17 assortment is an exciting compilation of a couple of different collections which will include Colorize, Attach-A-Patch, Junk Food (yum) and Holographic! These collections were created from our inspiration from trending themes in the fashion world. You may already be familiar with our Colorize and Attach-A-Patch collections (currently sold at Toys “R” Us) BUT, we decided to expand both lines with added accessories – to really make our assortments more diversified, with more great products to choose from. Now the coloring and customizing won’t just stop at socks! We’ll be adding in bags, notebooks, pouches and more! In addition to being able to sport our super cute customizable patches, you’ll soon have awesome accessories that you can attach those patches to! Who doesn’t love going nuts with patches? The more the better! In regards to newness, we are incredibly thrilled to soon introduce our “Junk Food” and “Holographic” lines. These collections will include super fun products like smelly socks (in adorably, fun giftable packaging), convertible pillows and bags, and even lunch boxes! (don’t worry, it’ll all be available just in time for Back to School) Overall, we’ve taken our core products and infused them with A LOT more fun, bright colors, added details and most importantly uniqueness – to ensure each item is full of LMM spirit! We cannot wait to share our new products with you! But, in the meantime (because we can’t show you just yet – we wouldn’t want to ruin the surprise!) below are some of our mood boards we used for inspo when designing our latest collections. Take a look, get excited, and make sure you’re on our so you can be the first one to snag our new swag! Comment below if you can’t wait for new LittleMissMatched products!
Ok here’s one little peek of a new pattern we’ve been literally drooling over! (LOL) Stay tuned for the deliciously full pack of our Cupcake Socks Gift Set!
Easter’s right around the corner, and we recently came across some sock bunnies on Pinterest. They were so so cute, we couldn’t help but want to create our own using our LittleMissMatched socks! Grab your fave pack of socks and let’s hop to it!
What you’ll need: A sock(s), scissors, dry rice, ribbon, pink felt, a rubber band, googly eyes, glue & cotton balls.
Fill the sock with rice just before the heel.
Tie off the top with a rubber band, and then tie a piece of ribbon around the center to separate the body from the head.
Cut the ears rounding them off a little like the shape shown by the dotted lines.
Glue on a cotton ball tail!
Glue on some googly eyes, a pink felt nose & draw on a mouth with some puffy paint or a marker.
TaDa! Your sock is now a bunny. How cute are these?! Show us your bunnies on Instagram by tagging #LMMUBU!
We love to hear from all the moms in our community; but you don’t usually get to hear about the moms behind LittleMissMatched. As we celebrate MOM today, we wanted to introduce you to some of the wonderful women who work behind the scenes to bring your favorite product to life. Please join us in celebrating Mother’s Day with the LittleMissMatched Moms.
SARINA (graphic designer) & NATE
‘My son Nathan is the love of my life. He makes me laugh, gives me the best hugs and kisses and knows how to drive me nuts one minute, then has me swooning over him the next! I miss those baby days but he is at such a fun age right now (3!). These are just a few things Nathan and I currently love to do: tickle each other, play the game Sorry every night, imaginative play, bike rides and hide from daddy. The best feeling in the world is coming home from work and getting that “Mommy!!!!” scream followed by those little hugs and kisses. This kid has me in love. Happy Mother’s Day Mommies!’
KRISTEN (sr. visual merchandiser) & ALYSSA
‘The best thing about being a mom is knowing how important I am to this little girl and how important she is to me. When I come home and she puts her arms around me with the biggest hug, it is the absolute best feeling in the world. Nothing else matters. It’s crazy how much these little people teach us and you only understand once you become a parent. They truly teach us what true, unconditional love is!’
ANDREA (director, ecommerce) & AMELIE
‘My daughter Amelie always makes my day! She might have daddy’s looks but I see myself in her expressions and personality and it cracks me up! I love to see how strong and enthusiastic she is. She LOVES music! We probably have a dance party at home every other night and you cannot dare to stay back. She’ll come to get you!’
MARISA (planner & allocator), TARYN & JORDAN
‘The first time they asked to play sports was the best! As a mom, watching their confidence grow through athletics is awesome.’
Wishing all of the LittleMissMatched moms a wonderful Mother’s Day. Thank you for all you do.

Today we’re thrilled to feature a special guest blog post written by Jennifer Garry of Cuddles and Chaos who made the most adorable Valentine’s Day cards just for us (and you of course!). Download them below and don’t forget to follow her at Cuddles and Chaos!
DIY Printable Monster Valentines | by Jennifer Garry
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. Every store you walk into right now is oozing red and pink hearts and exploding with messages of love and mushy gushiness. If you’re anything like my daughter, you might roll your eyes a little and fake gag when you see them. She would be ok with them for her BFFs, but the thought of handing them out to some of the boys in her class makes her want to puke.
Instead, she would much rather personalize her own valentines. She likes them much better with a little more of her own personality put into them anyway—and so do her friends!
This year, we put our heads together and decided to make some printable DIY monster valentines that can be as lovey or non-lovey as she wants. And you can use them too!
We made three different styles: fangtastic, monster hug, and beast. The best thing about them is that you can make them totally yours. Whether that means printing them out on cardstock and coloring them in, gluing on googly eyes, or printing them out on different colored paper is up to you. You can also add little treats (like the candy hearts or dinosaurs we used) or hand them out as is. Either way, you’re sure to have some one-of-a-kind valentines. And it couldn’t be easier!
Step one: Download your favorite design (or all three!) and print them out. We recommend using card stock. Click on the thumbnails below to download each PDF:
Step two: Assemble your supplies. We used little treat bags, stamps, googly eyes, glue and crayons, but this is where you can let your imagination run wild.
Step three: Personalize like crazy!
Step four: Give your awesome, personalized valentines to your friends.
If you use our little monsters, don’t forget to show off your work. Post them to Instagram and don’t forget to tag us @littlemissmatched #LMMUBU and @cuddlesandchaos so we can see how you made these designs your own!
