Windy City Bebe is not only a brand it is a lifestyle.

Windy City Bebe started as a blog by Mommy Lale Ketcham to chronicle the adventures of raising a little boy in Chicago. The  Windy City Bebe blog featured boutique spotlights, baby friendly restaurant reviews and daily doses of baby fashion.


Lale often found herself searching for unique items in a sea of baby stores. She was inspired by the city she loves and watching the world through her baby boy's eyes. Paired with her background in fashion she created items she loved and included them in her baby fashion posts.

As her son as her Muse, Lale has curated a collection of Hip, Unusual items made from the best fabrics and materials available. She has made it her mission to share them with other moms across the globe!

Opening a brick & mortar location in the summer of 2014, Windy City Bebe quickly became a household name.

Named "Chicago Kids Clothing Queen" Lale continued to dress kids from all over the world, but her heart was right here in Chicago. Lale has outfitted some of Chicago's most famous kids.

With the brick & mortar now closed, Lale & her Muse continue to share their adventures with parents in Chicago and across the nation.


Windy City Bebe is THE Chicago kid- Chic & Sophisticated with a serious sense of style.
