Our New Blog!

We have been wanting to start a blog for Elegant Mommy for quite a while now & today is as good of a day as any to get this going! We should have done this a long time ago because this was WAY easier than I thought it was going to be :)

The intent of this blog is to keep all of our incredible customers updated on happenings in the store and to get feedback from people on what they would like to see in the store, workshops they would like to attend, or just to tell us what is happening in your life!

As many of you know, we welcomed our 3rd child to the Elegant Mommy family on June 3rd. Chase has been an awesome blessing to our family and we are enjoying everything that God puts in front of us everyday...okay so maybe "enjoying" isn't the best word to use, maybe I should say we are "dealing" with everything God puts in front of us :) Seriously though Chase is a great baby and we have enjoyed all of our bonding time with him. However, I do have a business to run, so I am hoping to get Elegant Mommy running full speed ahead again in the coming weeks! My wonderful friends have done an incredible job keeping the store running smoothly for the last six weeks and I praise God for you! I don't know what I would do without the Elegant Mommy Kelly's! So look to see me at the store a lot more!

There are some exciting things that we are going to be offering at Elegant Mommy in the coming weeks! Mark your calendar as you don't want to miss out on these exciting workshops and other opportunities!

Babywearing Workshop: Saturday July 26th 1-3 pm at Elegant Mommy (2109 W 49th Street, Sioux Falls--Corner of 49th & Western)

We will discuss Ring Slings, Pouches, Mei Tai's, Wraps & possibly others

Benefits of Babywearing

Safety Tips

How to choose the right carrier

One-on-One troubleshooting

Feel free to bring slings and carriers you already own, especially if you have specific questions about their use!

FINALLY! An Affordable Maternity & Baby Photography Session: Thursday July 31st 1-7pm and Saturday August 2nd 10am-6pm at Elegant Mommy (2109 W 49th Street, Sioux Falls--Corner of 49th & Western)


Elegant Mommy will have local Mommy and photographer, Stacey Schmidt, available to capture forever this exciting time in your life! Each session will last 15-20 minutes and you will get as many photos as can be captured in 20 minutes.

Nice Blog! Neat to see you are doing a class on baby wearing. Nine years ago when I "wore" my daughter around Sioux Falls, the biggest hassel was people stopping me to ask what is that thing?? =)

keep up the good work!
