Waving goodbye to summer isn’t easy, but it means a whole new range of kids’ clothing is hitting the stores, making the cooler weather a little more bearable! And just because it’s getting cool outside, doesn’t mean we have to resort to drab dressing for our children.
The fabulous Fiona Scanlan knows exactly how to brighten a dull autumn day, her Big label is enough to put a smile on anyone’s face, just take a look at that ritzy ensemble above. Antique blue and a hint of sparkle – what more could you want? Well, maybe a rainbow feather headband, just to finish the look! The blue tulle dress is $99.95, the headband is $39.95.
Or how about a pair of star studded jeans? I love how our kids can get away with things we can only remember wearing in the ’80s (I hope I wasn’t the only one!). The A-line ribbed marle dress in rose is divine cold weather comfort, and being zipless and buttonless, it’s great for little girls just learning how to co-ordinate their own designer look in the morning. The jeans are $69.95, the dress is $44.95.
As if that isn’t enough to get your pulse racing, here’s the latest installment of fashion fun from Sooki Baby. This label has been a favourite of mine since my son was born two years ago. I’ve just started pulling out his baby clothes (due to the imminent arrival of our second son) and squealed with delight when I rediscovered his Sooki Baby wardrobe – in perfect condition!
The reversible jackets are a Sooki Baby staple, revised each year to reflect new trends. This year it’s red, red, red for boys and girls! Expect some traditional blue thrown in the boy’s mix and match wear too, as well as some Charlie Chaplin cheek! The ruffled leggings above are $28.95, the jackets are $49.95, while the separates start at $24.95. All these pieces and more can be found at the fashion-forward Baby’s Got Style.
