OAK- "One of A Kind"
Did you know that this part of our name represents the very beginning of this little brand? When I started making clothes 5 years ago, I thought I would only sell 1 of each item and then be on to the next! Funny how things don't always work out how you picture them, but often for the better. Having no idea I would one day be running an entire clothing line, not just a little Etsy shop, I've learned so much along the way (& not always the easy way πŸ˜…). I don't think I'll ever be able to limit myself to just a few items though.... so I'm excited to say we'll be adding a few "one-of-kind" items and smaller-run production pieces very soon and hope to keep things exciting by doing this regularly. These items might include upcycled fabrics, more constructed design, or bits to go with our current collections. Thank you for all of your support that allows us this kind of flexibility with our little brand πŸ’—πŸ’—PS- You can catch a little sneak peek over on my Instagram stories at one of our new items coming soon!! #kindredoak #oneofakind #kidsclothing

It's taken me almost 29 years to learn this. I only pray it doesn't take my son as long πŸ’—
Don't like who you are? Then change. Like yourself but feel put down by the people you surround yourself with? Then that's not your tribe. Find another one.

Growing up in a poor environment, realizing your home life is much different than many of your peers, it's so easy to feel as if you don't fit in and that you have to hide many problems at home that are simply out of your control as a child.
With so many positive mentors to influence me along the way, it's shown me that to be successful, you need to surround yourself with people that will believe in you and encourage you to believe in yourself, and accept the rest as something that is not for you. Don't be ashamed when you're not like everyone else- recognize it as an opportunity to contribute to the world in an area that is lacking. Be proud of what you can contribute to make the world a better place rather than dwelling on what everyone else has to offer. When you're more accepting of yourself, it makes it so much easier to be accepting of everyone else ❀️ After all, if we were all the same, how boring would life be? #kindredoak #kindredconfidence #motivationmonday

Who doesn't like naps? Especially on Sunday 😏 This ombrΓ© collection was one of my absolute favorites and I've got a plan up my sleeve to bring a couple {limited} pieces back AND add a couple new ones. πŸ™Š #cantwait #kindredoak #ombre

So Nixon locked us in the garage tonight.... ask me how that went. Just freaking ask me πŸ˜’ And then ask me which one of us ended up being the one to cry πŸ˜‚ (Me. It was me. lol) πŸ“·: Nix behind the scenes with @littlepeanutmagazine shoot with the sweetest @_beckykimball last year. I love how this honestly represents his personality (or least one side of it πŸ˜‰)

Who else lives in a bipolar state? πŸ™‹πŸΌπŸ˜‚ it's been snowing for the last three days here. Yay! πŸ˜’ Don't worry though- that's why we make our slouchy beanies perfect for year-round wear and why Nix has one in every freaking color πŸ˜‰ #kindredoak #slouchbeanie

Any single mamas up in here (picture that very rapper-ish sounding bc I'm very gangster πŸ˜‚)? πŸ™‹πŸΌ (non-single moms welcome too 😘) I used to share a bit about our personal lives(don't worry, nothing too crazy πŸ˜‰) and what goes on behind the scenes as a mom & feel I lost that for a bit when Nix's Dad & I split a couple years ago. Recently I've been working a lot on my confidence as a mom AND as a woman (yes, two separate things πŸ’—) and I haven't felt much of anything to say about what I had going on because really I just needed to shut up and experience things and LEARN. Well, let me tell you one thing I've learned (though I'm still working on actually DOING but that's for another time πŸ˜…). Confidence. Confidence is key to SO many of my issues. Anyone else feel this? Confidence helps me feel less on the defense & put more things into perspective (and not assume things). It also helps me stand up for myself if I'm being walked on πŸ’ͺ🏼 And when I am able to do these things I FEEL better. Which makes me feel like I can actual help someone else too. (*eh-hem or be a mom πŸ˜‰) As I was talking to Nixon's dad tonight, I realized his struggles are often so similar to mine as a single parent. I noticed his confidence wavering- I've been there. And in that moment I remembered why we are both great parents- because Nixon is first. No matter how much we hate each other on some days, we can sure have a great conversation about this amazing kid and how he is kicking both our asses most days πŸ˜‚ Then I thought that's part of confidence too- reaching out to someone and showing support because you've been there (whether you like the other person or not). So let's be more confident and help each other be more confident because I truly believe it will help us all be kinder to one another. *Sappy post over; que my gangster music for exit* ✌🏼 bahahaha
