I am super proactive in every way including Ella's wardrobe. I'm crazy. I know.
These are some of my favorite things that I have already purchased or are on my shopping list.
I love these from tea collection. I already bought the outfit on the left at Nordstrom (free shipping all the time. love them.) The next two just came out but I love these. If you aren't familiar with tea they have great clothes. They are a really good quality and hold up to a lot of washing and wearing. They are also really cute and completely different than any other retailer. Nordstrom carries a good but of their line and a great store in Asheville, NC called Just Ducky carries nearly every piece of their clothing.
Next up is Hanna Andersson. They have a handful of retail stores in the south mainly in Atlanta and a new one opening in Charlotte, NC. I don't think any other retailer produces children's clothes of this quality. They stand up to a lot and are meant to be passed down and worn by multiple children. I love the dress on the left although I doubt I will buy it because Ella already has about 10 dresses hanging in her closet for summer but the two outfits are on my list.
Drumroll please. Ella grew into Crewcuts! I am so excited. I love it. I purchased the outfit on the left already to see if she would be able to wear it and low and behold it fit. She needs to grow into it just a bit but it is precious. I love how modern and non-baby these clothes look. Childish but still sophisticated, clean and stylish. Perfect for my nearly two year old. :) I also ordered the little white shirt. It's really cute although I'm hanging onto it for next fall.
