A Trend I love for this Spring Season is Print-Mixing. I am seeing Print-Mixing being utilized as patchwork or by mixing prints together, like florals and classic shirting stripes, in unexpected and refreshing ways. This is a round-up of my favorite Spring Trends utilizing Print-Mixing for babiekins: scrunchies; flared dress; a paper doll; classic button-down; long skirt; romantic blouse; hoodie; belt bag and oversize collars. These Print-Mixed fashions are a little bohemian, a little refined, and full of youthful fun.
I dream of dressing my kids (and myself) in comfy knits and luxurious velvets, but in South Florida, we don’t get to enjoy fall and winter fashions until about February. Even, then, the cooler weather lasts for about a week. In this fashion story, I wanted to explore the contrasts between the tropical climate in South Florida and some of the popular clothing styles available for the cooler months.

I am super excited to share my favorite dress trend with you – the Sweatshirt Dress! This versatile dress can be dressed up or down and provides the perfect amount of warmth and coziness for the Fall Season. The Sweatshirt Dress is feminine combined with comfort, and I love that! I also love all iterations of the Sweatshirt Dress: allover printed; logo; ruffled; embroidered; graphics and hooded. Your babiekins can wear a Sweatshirt Dress alone or styled with colored tights, leggings or skinny jeans and a Sweatshirt Dress looks very cool worn with a pair of sock sneakers or chunky sneakers. I think you’ll love this comfy dress so much you will be wanting a Sweatshirt Dress for yourself as well!
After the Rain comes the Sun and Rainbows 🌈 ! This Spring Season I am loving Rainbow-style. I am seeing Rainbows on goodies in so many different ways: rainbow stripes; rainbow trims; appliqué, embroidered or printed rainbow graphics and rainbow shaped goodies. Here is a round-up of my favorite Rainbow Bright goodies that will brighten up your babiekins wardrobe or decor this Spring and Summer.

Simple but sophisticated, navy is the secret of “la Parisienne”. And the secret of little Parisiennes too.

Pantone, the global authority on color, introduced the Color of the Year 2015 as Marsala (Pantone 18-1438). Although Marsala is somewhat of a controversial color choice for some — liking a color is a personal and subjective experience — I really like Marsala because it is equally as stylish on a girl or boy. Pantone describes the color as “a naturally robust and earthy wine red, Marsala enriches our minds, bodies and souls.” My opinion is that Marsala is a grounding, warm red-brown color that looks good on everything from apparel, to accessories, to shoes, and even for home decor. It is a seasonless color that can be worn as a grounded statement color on its own in the fall and winter, and as a strong accent to other lighter and brighter colors in the spring and summer. I think both me and my son need something Marsala in our wardrobes for 2015, so we can radiate with confidence — obviously.
