Lotus & Bug (HOBOKEN STYLE!)

Lotus & Bug is an adorable clothing line created and designed by two NJ mommies, Joanne Baxter and Mary Blackstock. Their mission is to create well-made, fashionable clothing that promoted keeping kids healthy and active.

The concept of the line was created during play dates. With their kids bouncing on the trampoline, they realized that that they could bring their passions together and do something big! Merging their combined experiences of graphic and textile design, a love for yoga, and a desire to encourage their kids to “be active, brave and kind,” they arrived at Lotus & Bug.

They created a children's wear brand that follows the motto, "Yoga, Play and Every Day". With sizes newborn to 14 years, each garment is hand printed, hand painted or hand dyed in their NJ based studios. The fabrics they select are super soft so they feel great against your child’s skin and will take them from a handstand in the playground to a family gathering, seamlessly.

Almost a year after the launch of their brand, these #momboss ladies continue to keep each other motivated while balancing motherhood and business ownership. "We support each other throughout all life’s challenges and we make each other laugh! The bond of our friendship pushes our brand forward."

Little Hoboken was excited to get our hands on some clothing pieces, and to showcase them HOBOKEN STYLE! So we enlisted the help of three adorable Hobokenites and hit the streets.

And of course we wouldn't show you these adorable clothes without a little something for our readers! We have FOUR "Don't Bug Out" t-shirts to giveaway! Head to our Instagram (@LittleHoboken) to enter!

Lotus & Bug generously gifted the outifts shown to our models . We thank our readers for helping us to support our local businesses so that we may support our work here on the blog. xo Cassie & Melissa
