We love Mardi Gras and we also love to support local businesses. We decided to combine the two and show you some of our favorite finds on Etsy with a Mardi Gras feel.
First on the list are these adorable fleece vests in purple, green, and gold. We have some we ordered a few years ago and they are GREAT for a chilly daytime parade. Unfortunately, Didi who made ours is no longer making them, but I did find these on Etsy that look the same.
If these are feeling a little too last year for you, then maybe these gray vests with gingham collars will suit you a little better. So sweet!
This next item I have for my boys as well and people ask me where I got them all the time. I just love madras pants on little boys and in Mardi Gras colors? I had to have them. They are light and very comfy. Probably better for a day parade, but you know how Louisiana weather is–unpredictable! If you prefer the traditional Mardi Gras gingham, the same shop carries those as well.
Okay, so now I’m turning my attention to little girls. Guys, I had heard about the Twirl Shop but had not really dived in because I only have boys. They have the CUTEST skirts! Like I want one in every print for myself. They’ve got rugby and rainbow and sprinkle!!! Seriously, what little girl could resist a sprinkle skirt?
If you prefer longer, more traditional skirts, this one from Miss Sew It All Boutique looks perfect. I just love that print!
So I love these but I haven’t ordered them. What’s not to like about mardi-gras-themed snowball leggings? I was having trouble finding plus-sized leggings and now here they are! If you love them, grab them now because they won’t last long.
And speaking of leggings, these are also really fantastic. Perfect for a parade or just to wear around town during the season. I mean, can you really have too many pairs of leggings? This color block style is available in regular and plus.
And I’m drooling over these kid gator-print leggings available from local boutique Serenity. SO CUTE!!!
And we can’t forget accessories! Mardi Gras is all about going all out. Being a little “extra” if you will. I found this hair bow which is perfect for the boutique set although you might find it a little small (the bigger the bow, the closer to God, right?) If you prefer the smaller, tailored bows, these may be more your style.
Or maybe you’ve got more of a Mardi Gras handband kind of girl. No fear! We’ve got you covered there too. This one is beautiful.
Or maybe you’re more into baby turbans. Again, I missed this craze completely having only had boy babies, but everywhere I look these days i see a baby in a turban, so maybe you need this one.
Or maybe you’re looking for something for the house? This door hanger is just too cute. It’s also the only king cake guaranteed not to add any pounds!
Well, I hope you found something you like! I personally love shopping small businesses and these products are too cute to pass up!
