As a mom, it can be a challenge to find cute kids’ clothing, especially when you need a local shop, but Cricket and Ruby can be your new go-to. I can honestly say it can be near impossible at times, too, because as a maternity, lifestyle newborn and family photographer, I search high and low to find the cutest outfits for the CAP Client Closet. Inspired by trends with everyday style in mind, you’ll find pieces both you and your minis will love.

Your Local Kids’ Boutique

Cricket and Ruby is a modern boutique featuring hand-picked quality, high-end brands. Built by a local mom with an eye for fashion, design and the perfect shop for moms and their babies, Cricket and Ruby is the perfect place for a shopping spree or just picking up some new staples of the season!

The Clothes

Both online and in-store, the shop has features finds from both vintage and neutral inspired trends, and colorful, kid-approved styles. While it’s hard enough to find stylish outfits for girls, it’s twice as difficult to shop good finds for boys, especially locally. Cricket and Ruby sells both girls’ and boys’ boutique collections, with some great pieces for mom in there, too.

Shop both girls’ and boys’ styles from 0 to 8 years old. Moms can shop sizes XS to L and find mom-and-me outfits – how perfect!

Quality Pieces from Top Brands

The experience of Cricket and Ruby is one worth checking out (pun intended). When you shop boutique pieces, there’s nothing worse than getting a low quality find that won’t last through a few tumbles and much encouraged outdoor play time. You want quality that lasts and style that keeps you coming back next season.

Jamie Kay, Esme, Itzy Ritzy, Rylee and Cru, Quincy Mae and Noralee are just a few of the collections you’ll find at Cricket and Ruby. Style, quality, and comfort can be found here.

Accessories for Kids

Moms are not the only ones who know the perfect piece to accessorize an outfit, so why limit those bright, creative minds? Shop bows, sweet sunnies, hats and bags for your littles. Whether it’s for an event, or just for everyday, they’re sure to love it – in this Arizona sun, they always come in handy, anyway!

Bonus tip for aunts, uncles, godparents and friends – these make great gifts for kids!

Gifts, Nursery and Party Supplies, Oh My!

Speaking of gifts, Cricket and Ruby has a sweet selection of toys and books that would make great ones. It doesn’t hurt that it can make shopping trips more eventful, too, for you and your little ones. These aren’t your ordinary toys and books, either. Staying true to the boutique experience, you’ll find some of the cutest, unique items that you’re going to fall in love with.

If you’re welcoming a new baby into your life, or celebrating your grown up babies, there are some cute and simple party supplies you can grab while you shop just to add the perfect touch. I highly recommend checking in with Cricket and Ruby every once in a while if you’re looking for some nursery linens or furniture items for you kids, because they have some incredible options in stock when they are in season.

Holiday Cheer

Seasonal items can be some of the best boutique finds. Cricket and Ruby is a great place to find Easter basket goodies or fill a Christmas stocking. And gifts! Did I already mention gifts? Gifts!
