With fall just around the corner, I am squeezing in every last ounce of color possible into these last few weeks of summer trying to get the most miles out of a bright wardrobe. Children always seem to glow in an outfit taking more than one cue from Roy G. Biv, too, don't they? I turned to Hanna Anderson this month - a great brand with even better prices, and just as important, their clothes are truly comfortable for kids to wear.
Selecting just one of their dresses to feature was a task in itself, as all of them are bursting with colors, whether in the form of polka dots, plaids, or in the case, psychedelic paisleys. On a sweet and simple tunic dress, an extremely bold pattern becomes downright adorable. Charming details like off-center buttons and ruching at the sleeves make for a precious get up. (Even better - pair it with leggings or layers for the fall). With so many colors to choose from in the fabric, accessories are a cinch. The original salt-water sandal from Sun-Sun (remember those ladies?!) are making a big comeback and work with everything from ocean wading to birthday parties and everything in between. Finishing touches like a felt flower clip (or two) for the hair and my favorite nail polish brand of all time - Essie - in pink parka keep the whimsically of the outfit just right.
One of my favorite reasons to love Hanna Anderson are their fantastic tees for boys. These puppies just keep getting better and better. In a myriad of colors and styles, these pure organic cotton shirts are incredibly soft against the skin , come through the wash week in and week out looking as good as new, and are tough enough to last as real hand-me-downs through brothers, sisters, and cousins galore. Coupling a tee with great canvas cotton shorts, brushed and washed for broken-in character, is a great way to go, especially if you can find shorts in an equally fun and complimentary color to have plenty of J. Crew's friendship bracelets to hand out on the playground.
Happy end of Summer :)
