A statement piece worn two different ways.
When I purchased this sweater I knew it was amazing & a piece like this can be worn so many different ways. Can be worn with a palazzo pant or with cute printed shorts. Also feel free to add cute accessories like this gold heart printed make-up bag I’m using as a clutch! Shhhh!
All items worn here are from Forever21.

Babiekins was so excited to go to NYC earlier this year. It was an incredible experience and we loved being able to meet so many new people! If you have been to NYC you know what a magical place it is.
The last day of our visit, we had the chance to style and photograph this sweet model (who drove SIX hours to shoot with us!!) There was something about seeing the city through her eyes, something about being out and about in the Big Apple with her as our sidekick that made the whole shoot super special. While she was decked out in her Matilda Jane best, we all chatted with our cab drivers, downed our weight in donuts, and walked around with stars (apples?) in our eyes.
And the bright Matilda Jane colors are such a contrast to the city’s tones, aren’t they?

For the Babiekins team, exploring the Big Apple meant red eye flights and a whirlwind visit. But when it comes to PetiteParade in NYC, Chance and Summer Ambrose (children of June Ambrose) had a different perspective — and we just love it!
BABIEKINS: What was your favorite part of the fashion show?
CHANCE (11 years old): Ummmm…ALL of it!
BABIEKINS: And what was your favorite part of the show, Summer?
SUMMER (8 years old): I liked the Target dog!
BABIEKINS: What did you think about the Petite Parade fashion show?
CHANCE: I think it was amazing!
We will have more on our NYC adventure (including Playtime and more coverage of the PetiteParade) soon!

Today on Instagram, all of the Babiekins’ editors are sharing how we style our white tees. It’s so easy to take a basic piece in your closet and create completely different looks with it. So starting today, every Friday we will be sharing our style tips on our Instagram with the hashtag #fridayfashion and #thisbabiekinswears. Follow along and share how you style your and/or your little one’s white tee (using the hashtag #thisbabiekinswears) for a chance to be featured on the Babiekins instagram feed.
As editors, we are obsessed with fashion and style, and as mothers, we know how important it is to find affordable clothing and to be able to create multiple looks with just a few items. Over at Babiekins, we want you to know that it is possible to stylish without buying all designer clothing and that by mixing and matching a few articles of clothing, you can create multiple (and very different) looks for your little one.

Over at Babiekins Magazine, we try to encourage you to see the world through the eyes of a child, so of course we immediately fell in love with this woodland creature editorial shoot by Anita Clarke.

An animal-inspired accessory and an adventure in the woods is a great way to spark a child’s imagination. To create your own little woodland creature adventure with your Babiekins, check out these mask and tail sets by Oeuf.

Being fashionable, doesn’t always mean spending a lot of money. As real moms ourselves, we love mixing and matching high and low fashions to create a look that is both affordable and stylish for our children, and with little ones constantly (and quickly) growing, we try to get as much use as possible out of every piece that we buy. Here are three simple styling tips for making your babiekin’s wardrobe last:
- Splurge on unique and bold accessories that grow with your child like the Bambinos & Bunny bow ties and headbands shown above.
- Make clothes work in any season, like pairing tights with shorts and short sleeves with sweaters in the winter and then removing those items when warmer weather hits. Below you can see how to wear the same outfits in spring.
- Buy neutral colored shoes that can coordinate with anything and everything so that you’re not limited in coordinating your clothing choices.
How do you make your own little one’s wardrobe last?
As we head into the final stretch of winter, make your mini mister’s wardrobe last through the end of winter and straight into spring by following these simple styling tips:
- Instead of packing away the sweaters that he is starting to outgrow, layer them on top of larger ones for a different look in order to get the most use out of them.
- Purchase shoes that can be worn in any season. Simply change out the laces to make them feel like new.
- Buy clothing that can be worn in multiple ways like the Goat Milk long johns pictured above that can be worn as long johns during the coldest times of the year, pajamas year-round, and leggings in both winter and spring.
