Welcome, Polarn O. Pyret! Plus, an Awesome Giveaway

POP-store.pngSweden, meet Boston! I'm thrilled to be working with Polarn O. Pyret--purveyor of super cute, well-made kid's clothes--to share about their new store in Chestnut Hill. Woo hoo! The Chestnut Hill location opens this weekend and will follow the family-friendly suit of its other stores (notably, play fodder for kids and amenities for nursing and stroller-wheeling parents). In honor of PO.P's grand opening, I'm sharing my favorite picks from their baby, little kid, and big kid collections + a ridiculously awesome $250 giveaway! Let's do this thing:
