Paige Smith- Founder & CEO  A peek behind the scenes: Ethical baby/ kids'-wear and a journey of mompreneurship. πŸ€“ Seen on Kardashian babes | Featured in Vogue | Est. 2011


This little lady is 3 today!! She was one of our first clients when I just started realizing KO was something I'd really like pursue and her mama has become a dear friend. ❀️❀️ I LOVE that this business is not just clients, it's FRIENDSHIP. Happy Birthday, sweet Meems πŸ’—πŸ’— So glad I sent your present months early so it was sure to be on time πŸ˜… #birthdaygirl #kindredoak

Confession: I have been stressed to the max lately, and this peach sent me over the edge πŸ˜‚ I am like the least domestic person, I swear. Someone teach me. How the fuh are you supposed to cut a peach? It was so difficult to get the pit out of the middle and the rest was basically a big pile of mush when I was done. Mom fail. This on top of my ultimate guilt of too much work and not enough time with my babe started those crazy thoughts of mom doubt.... you know what I'm talking about?Those stupid thoughts when you feel like you're not good enough just because you can't cut a stupid peach? πŸ˜… Why do we do that?! Let's make a pact to be better at not doing this, k? Instead of hating on ourselves, let's give ourselves a compliment when things are going rough. I'll start- I'll delegated like a boss this week and am one giant step closer to being better organized πŸ’ͺ🏼 What did you do this week that was amazing? #kindredconfidence

And we're live!!! *A special note about this capsule release:
Just moments before we were set to release, a dear family member to my boyfriend lost her new baby after fighting for over a month πŸ˜ͺ We are so, so saddened by this and are sending so much love for their family.
This collection, called "Celebrate", could not be more perfect as it will be a celebration of the short time that he was able to spend with an amazing mama and father.
A portion of the proceeds from this new collection will go toward their family and I just want to thank you in advance for your kind support as each item you purchase from this collection will help their family ease the pain of so many expenses at such a sad time. ❀️

Set your clocks for tomorrow! We'll be releasing drop 1 of our Summer Collection and we'll be announcing an exciting giveaway 😏 Summer Release at 7 PM (MST) #kindredoak

Hear my thoughts on our Summer Collection and what goes down "behind the scenes".... Join our email list (bottom of our homepage- link my profile πŸ˜‰) for a special invite to the Kindred OAK Friends group to get the scoop. {I figure my posts are getting a bit lengthy on here πŸ˜…}. Thank you all so much for reading my rants though. It's that little bit of support that keeps me going through the hard, stressful times and makes me remember why I live such a crazy life πŸ˜‚ Love you all ❀️ (like, you don't even KNOW! 😘) #kindredoak #behindthescenes

πŸ™Š Did you see the sneak peek on our IG Stories??? It's coming.... #summer
Photo shoot day. My favorite day of every season. (Or is it release day? πŸ€”) The excitement of so many cute little babes and their parents (or is it actually just chaos? 😜), the moment of seeing your entire idea come to life once the first photograph comes back, realizing these aren't just random pieces I've been staring at & wondering if people will think I've lost my mind for thinking this is cute, it's a collection of what inspires me as a mom, as a woman who feels like a million bucks when I wear something that speaks to me, as someone that believes clothes can stand for MORE than just personal style.
I cannot wait to show you what we've got up our sleeve. Not just these adorable new outfits that are coming your way, but all of the great we are finding in people we work with along the way πŸ’—πŸ’— #kindredoak #thebestisyettocome

Full blown prep.-mode over here! I tend to go into hibernation before each season release....have you noticed? πŸ˜… On that note.... Want to win a few FREE Summer goodies? Stayed tuned- we've got a little something coming your way. (Hint: help us start spreading the word that Summer KO is coming to get a head start on a chance to get your hands on those free goodies πŸ˜‰) #kindredoak #summer #kidsclothing

I'm going to let you in on a little secret- social media can be STRESSFUL. Haha Raise your hand if you can relate πŸ™‹πŸΌ I have this weird love-hate relationship with it. I am sooo grateful for what it has done for my business and for the amazing opportunity it has presented for me to meet so many fantastic people (YOU!). BUT, I've also learned over the years that's important to take breaks (just like everything else in life!). We've been swamped at the office, carefully prepping Summer and working hard to meet tight Fall deadlines for our new samples πŸ™ŒπŸΌand these crazy hours leave me with little left for the fam some days. So I'll be unplugging for the weekend to find a little a balance and to focus on getting everything finished for Summer launch! (Yeeeeeah πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌ) I truly hope you can do the same as well and get some time to enjoy your weekend β˜€οΈ Be sure to check in on Monday though because starting next week, things are going to get really exciting around here πŸ˜‰ #kindredoak #ladyboss #mompreneur #unplug

Can we talk sandals for a second? So I'm trying reallllly hard to stick this whole minimalist thing and only buy one pair of sandals for summer (and only because my other pair has seen too many days! πŸ˜‚). Who has a pair of @avarcasusa Pons? Tell me everything. Do I need this classic style? Or do I need the ones with the ankle strap?? I'm worried they may not stay on my feet well because I have wide, old-lady feet... πŸ€” I'm down to these and some @freepeople ones I've had my eye on 😩🀀 But I'm open to other suggestions! What are your favs?? Someone help this mama out πŸ˜… πŸ“·: @avarcasusa 😊 #mamafashion #summersandals

What helps you feel "balanced". I am a firm believer that there is no such thing as true work-life balance BUT I do think there's a way to manage the highs & lows and try to find a middle ground so that everything runs a hell of a lot smoother 😜
{skip to the bottom for a note on this sneak-peek 😘}
Today I stood in the middle of the grocery store about to have a breakdown πŸ˜… I had literally been running from place to place today with back to back phone calls, fast-approaching deadlines constantly waving in the back of my mind and I had to stop everything I was doing to try to teach my 21-year-old sister why my son cannot live on Cinnamon Toast Crunch & Hi-C Fruit Punch πŸ™„ (she's doing a little nannying for us this summer in exchange for helping her move up to Utah πŸ™ŒπŸΌ). But it was in that moment of being so frustrated putting back the Hi-C & the Cinnamon Toast Crunch that I realized, "Back up, Paige. Of course she wouldn't know that he can't have those things; that's what we grew up on." πŸ˜‚ (Let's just say we group eating little Debbie's & those were the weeks we could afford to actually buy any food at the grocery store lol)
The flexibility in my schedule to be a mom and the opportunity to chase a dream of doing something I love {almost} as much as my family are some of the things I love most and some days that can be clouded by all the stress & anxiety of the juggling everything which is why I talk soooo much about taking breaks and taking care of yourself! To hold strong in moments like these so you don't lose your πŸ’© in the middle of the store when the only thing in your cart is sugary cereal and fruit punch and it's time to leave so you can't grab anything else (while you're on a business conference call) 🀣 bahahaha stay strong mamas πŸ’ͺ🏼
PS- I know you all loved this blankie soooo much and I'm giving you one last chance to purchase it this summer πŸ™ŒπŸΌ Stay tuned for our Summer Release date (hint- it's coming soooooon) #kindredoak #motherhood

Look at this handsome little stud. Can I just tell you he is the best thing to ever happen around here (actually, ask me tomorrow after he's woken me up 3 times tonight πŸ˜‚). Seriously though. Being a single mom ("single"? πŸ‘ˆπŸΌI do have a great support system & an amazing boyfriend πŸ˜‰) has opened up my eyes in amazing ways. Things I used to shame myself for not doing "the right way", I now find to often be such a blessing. One of the biggest is the way I've learned to completely focus on Nixon when it's "our time". Just because we don't have 24/7 together does not mean we don't have an amazing relationship (in fact, I think this makes me a better mama πŸ™ƒ)
We all have our stuff to get done in order to function as families- work, chores, school functions, etc., but I tend to have a hard time if I can't compartmentalize things. I am a hyper-focus kinda person. When I started Kindred OAK, it had only been a month after I had Nixon. Then when things blew up so much faster than I had ever imagined, I found myself unable to figure out who I was. It was so hard to balance all of these things without having a centered ground within myself. I was always a mother, or a business owner, or a wife. But who was I? I felt frustrated with everything I was everywhere else because I didn't know how to take care of myself. And just when I thought I had made the ultimate failure of myself, I finally realized I still hadn't found ME. So how could I have failed? This was the real issue. The only thing I had failed at was putting everyone else before me and forgetting myself in the process; it left me with a whole lot of NOTHING to give to anyone else. I found myself talking about this with another mama the other day and it made me realize how much it has positively affected my life and the relationships surrounding me when I take time for myself. (Even if it's 20 minutes to listen to a podcast about something that interests me πŸ™ƒ) So I highly encourage you to remember to take time for yourself {and use me as your excuse if you need to}! Don't feel guilty for recharging because I promise it will leave you with 110% to give most of the time instead of a consistent 95% 😘 #kindredconfidence
