The first few months of parenthood are like one long hangover, without the happy hours or wine-soaked dinners. What makes it tolerable? The charming baby gurgles.
Inspired by their infant daughter and her adorable ramblings (glug, glug, glug), Kristen and Luis Pena founded Glug clothing in 2004. And now, for the first time, the entire collection is available online.
Focusing on comfy fabrics, easy-to-wear designs, and modern graphics, each season Glug guarantees the fit and feel will pass muster with even the pickiest 3 year old.
Look beyond the signature tees and discover roomy cords with snap-back pockets, empire-waist dresses that rest easy over leggings, and this season’s standout: a cozy, sherpa-lined hoodie.
Suffice to say, we’re gaga about it all.
Available online at glugcollection.com, $20-$50.
