Look of the Month: July

School is out and summer is in full swing! It’s a great time of year to be a kid in Ithaca. With all of our local lakes, parks, and gorges, a kid can basically live in swimsuits and sandals. This month’s family of models shows us how!

Meet the Johnson kids! Mama Jody volunteered her crew of cuteness to show off this month’s styles. 7-year-old Hannah, 3-year-old Khesed, 1-year-old Shalom and 11-year-old Josiah took to Stewart Park to make fun in the sun look extra adorable.

Hannah’s multi-patterned Mini Boden suit (size 6, $6.95 ) goes perfectly with a Lands’ End terrycloth cover-up (size 5, $6.95) and size 12/13 Crocs ($5.95.) Khesed’s hooded wet-suit features a zipper and flamingos (Little Me, size 3, $5.95) and goes perfectly with polka-dot Toms sandals (size 6, $8.95.) Shalom’s adorable two-piece tankini is by Absorba (12-18 months, $9.95) and Josiah’s Speedo trunks (size 10, $4.25) pair perfectly with $1 sunglasses, a Cherokee rashguard (size 12/14, $6.95) and Timberland sandals (size 4, $12.95.)

Look of the Month: June

June is here, and it finally feels like summer! Between BBQs, graduation parties and end-of-year concerts, this month is chock full of opportunities to showcase your warm weather wardrobe. This month’s model, the lovely Lucy, graciously showed off several summery selections.

Lucy’s first look works perfectly for any kind of summer celebration, or could be dressed down for a regular day. Both the seersucker dress (Polo Ralph Lauren, size 12, $10.95) and flip flops (Teva, $20.00, size 5) are classic pieces guaranteed to become staples in any wardrobe. A light scarf ($12.00) adds just an extra touch of glam, plus some protection in case of a summer breeze.


Lucy looks effortlessly cool in a black lace Xhilaration tank (size 9/10, $2.25) and a floral high-low skirt (size 12, $5.95.)  Lucy’s Nine West boots are her own, but her cool shades could be yours at the Goose for $7.00.







Lucy shows off one last outfit as a sample of what summer has to offer! This casual pairing of Zara corduroy shorts (size 9/10, $6.95) and a Gap tank top (size 9/10, $2.50) looks polished with the added Zara cardigan (size 9/10, $6.50.)  With this many great things to wear, she’s definitely ready for an endless summer.


Stop by the Goose and see what summer styles might be in store for you and your little ones.

Look of the Month: May

Ah, the merry month of May! This month’s model, Alice, once she’d finished counting impossible things and having breakfast, stopped by the store to show off some post-winter whimsy.  Her floral dress (Liberty of London, size 24 months, $6.95) pairs perfectly with an Old Navy chartreuse cardigan (size 2, $5.95) and pink patterned legwarmers ($2.49.) She’s prepared for rain or shine with an iPlay umbrella (or parasol!) in green ($16.00) and Hatley rain boots previously purchased from the Goose.

If a spring shower does begin to sprinkle, Alice is ready with an H&M rain coat (size 18 months, $4.95) and mischievous smirk (model’s own.)

May your May be full of floral fashion and Alice-esque attitude. See you at the Goose!
