There is absolutely nothing wrong with dressing kids in those, particularly if they like hearts, flowers, trucks or trains, but I have just always veered towards items that are a little more fun. Who says that dresses, t-shirts or onesies can't be attractive and fun for kids while making them stand out from the crowd just a bit? And really, why do they have to be all pastels?
Fortunately, before Big Sister E was even born, I was introduced to one of my favorite sites to find just the right combination of high quality, fashionable look, and beautifully unique styles: Zutano.
Known for designing products in the brightest colors, the most sumptuous, high-quality fabrics with patterns and prints that are designed to be mixed and matched, Zutano embodies a whimsical, tireless love for everything baby.
For anyone familiar with their pieces, Zutano clothing is immediately recognizable — and has continued to give parents the ability to find clothes as unique as their baby for over 20 years. I love that no matter what your tastes, Zutano's commitment to celebrating the diversity of all children and creating exceptional, innovative, and versatile products has continued to produce amazing results.
As some of my favorite pieces from my girls' closet over the years have been from Zutano, I am always confident in picking out their products for us or as baby shower or new mom gifts. With collections ranging in size from preemie up to 4T, there really is no way to go wrong! From funky to sporty to preppy to bohemian, there's something just right for every sweet newborn through toddler.
I have yet to meet a Zutano style and pattern that I don't enjoy and, with the arrival of their Secret Garden Picnic Dress ($33) and Pool Toddler Skinny Legging ($18.50), that was proven yet again.
The perfect combination of pink and girly for Little Sister B and bright, crisp and modern for me, both of these pieces had us smitten right out of the package.
Along with the bold, bright printed design of the Secret Garden collection, this dress features adorable little cap sleeves, a key hole neckline, dark pink edging and two perfectly-sized pockets right on the front that are great for little hands or tiny treasures.
I love the way that Zutano made their Picnic Dress loose and flowing with an easy two button closure in the back. Whether little girls are going to preschool, playing on the playground or are heading to a birthday party, this dress works for just about any occasion to leave them stylish as well as comfortable.
Pair this great dress with the classic, fashionable Toddler Skinny Leggings in the bold Pool color and the look is complete. These leggings are super soft, tight without being too tight, and have a sturdy waistline that doesn't bother delicate skin. Little Sister B had no problem pulling them right on...
...and, after one glance down at the full outfit, it was pretty easy to see that she was thrilled with the look and feel.
I couldn't blame her! If I had an outfit out of luxuriously soft cotton that looked this darn cute on me, I'd be grinning (and jumping for joy) as well!
With colors and styles appropriate for all ages, every time I browse at Zutano I find a new favorite. For your next occasion, gift or just for kicks, their clothing, accessories, shoes and decor are sure to be a big hit. After all, there's nothing wrong with 872 outfits with duckies or bears on them, but there's just no way of denying that Zutano knows (and dresses) babies and toddlers... better.
Whether being worn the first time or the 50th, these pieces look wonderful and make any child feel like a star. Each one can be purchased directly from Zutano.com, on Amazon.com, in boutique stores worldwide, and, as part of a new and extremely exciting addition, at Target! That's right! Target!
ZUTANOBLUE that is available at select stores and on Target.com.
The ZUTANOBLUE line captures their same vibrant aesthetic and trademark bright, whimsical prints in clothing, hosiery and children's bedding; while remaining distinct from the core Zutano brand. I love being able to see one of my favorite brands now in one of my favorite stores!
Whether you are familiar with Zutano or this is your first introduction, these fresh, fun pieces will help you and your child express themselves colorfully, comfortably and with an individual style that is sure to bring a smile. And, thanks to their generosity, one person will get the chance to outfit their child in hip, cool designs as well, because...
