A huge trend happening right now are matching tops and bottoms. This cheerful floral top and matching pants by Aristocrats Kids makes for the perfect springtime outfit. Oxford shoes by H&M keep it cool and comfortable. Samantha needed some more sparkle. These Dolly by Petit Tom lavender shorts with a huge gold bow were perfect with this Miguel Vieira Junior boy inspired button down. There is still a slight nip in the air in spring, so these Dolly pearl embellished knee high socks will keep her legs warm. Now, let’s talk about Zachariah’s suit. Mr. Uky designed this hounds tooth, 70’s inspired red and black vest and matching wide leg pant. Super on trend this season and beyond adorable.
Samantha’s Tutu du Monde pink tulle skirt and Little Miss Galia top with bows down the back begged for Anais and I pink sparkly shoes and a mini pink top hat. For the boys, this short suit by Appaman with this 1970’s inspired Mr. Uky button down and a pair of palm tree printed sneakers by Zara are cute and sophisticated.
The gorgeous Mischka Aoki dress worn by Lola, is the epitome of a high fashion spring dress. Its bright yellow color, floral print and layers of tulle have us all dreaming of family portraits on the lawn and parties with friends and family.
Lola’s Aristocrat Kids nature print dress is perfect for the holidays this spring. And a bunny eared-veiled-headband by Milk N Soda? Yes, please! The look is finished off with her black buckled patent leather bluchers from Zara. Samantha couldn’t be cuter in this Anais and I baby blue tulle dress accented with a pop of color in the red beaded H&M Necklace and Tutu du Monde feather headpiece. Her boho Zara booties keep the dress cool and casual.
Overall, the trends for the spring holidays reflect everything we envision when we think “spring.” Florals, bright, happy colors and elements of nature. And of course, anything that makes our little one’s look fresh and fly!
Along with the holidays that come with fall and winter, we would have to say that layering for the cooler weather is one of the benefits of these seasons. Different textures and colors make dressing up so fun during these months.
