Fashionkins// Hip in the Hamptons

Summertime in the Hamptons doesn’t have to be all about polo shirts and cable knit sweaters (although it can be if you like). Our family has been lucky to spend the summer here for seasonal work and we’ve had a blast exploring all of the towns and villages. I love the aesthetic of the Hamptons- country, beach and modern industrial all blended so tastefully. Straw hats, caftans in neutral tones and gladiator sandals tend to be the go-to outfits for the mamas. Montauk has a little more of a colorful boho vibe, but still maintains that quintessential Hamptons’ vibe- relaxed but chic. As far as kids’ fashion in the Hamptons, it’s all about comfort! Popular brands on the East End include Pink Chicken and Ralph Lauren. In this fashion story, my daughter, Elise, and I spent the morning with Babiekins Magazine’s digital editor and photographer, Elizabeth Pettey. Elizabeth got some killer shots of Elise’s favorite summer outfits at some cool spots in East Hampton/Amagansett/Montauk. The outfits are a mix of textiles and colors and are light and comfortable for the summer.

Fashionkins // Festival Vibes

We’re embracing the essence of Summer this festival season. Channelling the 70’s prints, bell sleeved dresses and gladiator sandals.

This beautifully lightweight and silky boho inspired dress is perfect. As soon as Edie got it on she couldn’t stop playing with the hem detail, calmly twiddling the material in her tiny finger tips and remarking on how pretty it was. It’s refreshing playing around with a different look for her; away from the denim, monochrome and graphic prints I’ve been dressing her in a lot lately. This dress highlights her wistful imagination and her carefree playful spirit.

Tired from chasing squirrels; Edie sat down in some long grasses to adjust her intricate flower crown, before neatly arranging her dress around her ankles and proclaiming she was ”The Queen of flowers and juicy berries Mumma”.

This girl, My perfect summer personified.

I have a son, but I must admit if I had a daughter, I would love to dress her in an adorable Romper. There is nothing I love more than seeing a little girl romp-er-ing around in one of these must have summer essentials. The more gathers, frills, ruffles or trims it has the better. I do love a simple one color understated modern print in a romper though; such as a stripe, geometrical, dot or heart. These rompers are all just too cute for me not to share with you… what is your favorite fashion item for your babiekin?

Fashionkins// Fit For A Prince

It’s been a regal affair this week over here in the UK. With the Christening of Princess Charlotte of Cambridge causing a stir. It was in fact her big brother Prince George, that took centre stage. Head-to-toe adorable in outfits evocative of the ’40’s era, he’s been at the top spot of best dressed lists.

Inspired by royal babiekin style, my cute little babiekin is rocking an outfit fit for a prince. I’ve got a lot of love for a boy that can rock patent T-Bars this well.

Fashionkins // Independence Day Wear

It’s no secret that I love festive and celebratory clothing. For this Independence Day, I chose a patriotic romper because it so adorably represents the land of the free because of the brave. The flag especially means a lot to me, since I’m a military wife and we’re a military family. We would love to see how you and your babiekins represent America this year — and we wish you all a wonderful holiday!

Classic neutrals are always a great staple for the summer. Whether you are spending your summer in a seaside town or in the country, creamy white, taupe and gray will keep your babiekins looking fresh.

Like my little guys, I’m one of two kids in my family. Between my younger sister and I, there are six years that separate us. While that’s quite a big age difference, it never stopped my parents from dressing us exactly alike. There are countless coordinated outfits in our family photo album and somewhere through the years, that definitely imprinted on me. Parents always say, “you’ll understand when you have kids” and in this case, I certainly do! When I can get my little man and littler man in the same outfit, my heart just explodes.
