Swimming in Swimsuits

May 25, 2017

Memorial day if finally here!  Event though most kiddos are still in school, for me this the official kick off to summer!  And with summer comes swimming.  And who doesn’t want a new swimsuit to make their debut at the pool or beach?  This weekend is the time to shop!  Right now ALL SWIMWEAR IS 20% OFF!!  Be sure to check out all our swimwear brands at adorableschildren.com.  We carry classic suits by Kate Mack and Isobella and Chloe.  Want a vintage, retro look?  Check out our suits from Muddy Feet.  Got a tween girl who is suddenly allergic to ruffles?  We’ve got you covered with Gossip Girl swimwear!  Looking for a novelty suit for your little one?  Love U Lots suits are for you!  No matter what you are looking for Adorables Children’s Boutique has it!

So, now that you know what brands to look for, its time to decide what style you want.  Again, there are many choices!  Here’s a quick rundown of our most popular styles:

One Piece swimsuits

With the continuous revolution of the one-piece swimsuit, fashion swimwear doesn’t have to come in the form of an itsy-bitsy bikini. Many feel more comfortable in a less-skin baring, more supporting suit.  They are flattering for all body types, and sometimes include a built-in skirt.  One piece option are great for girls sizes 4-10.

Bikini swimsuits

Shop swimwear

The tops and bottoms can come in many different shapes and styles.
A basic bikini top will have triangle shapes that cover the breasts and adjoining strings-going around the neck and around the back. They will tie at the neck and either on the back or between the bust for a secure and adjustable fit.

A triangle top or tie top, first imported from Rio de Janeiro, is one of the most popular. They are often just lined to keep the top lightweight. Some have stitched in or removable padding and some have underwire. A triangle top can have either fixed or sliding triangles. Fixed triangles are better at staying in place, while sliding triangles slide along the bottom string band for adjustable coverage. This information should be in the product description. Many times there is adornment or a decorative piece between the bust to add a bit of flair. A triangle suit is a great look for those who are average or smaller busted.

Halter Top

A halter top is similar to a triangle top. The fabric that goes around the neck is thicker.    It’s not uncommon for a halter to have an extra strip of fabric underneath the bust, often of contrasting color or pattern.

Bandeau Top

A bandeau top has no shoulder straps (or very thin ones coming up around the back of the neck) and is a large strip of fabric covering the bust. They either tie or clasp in the back.  Because of the lack of straps, bandeaus can easily slip down and are generally not recommended for water sports or beach games. They are ideal for tanning, since they leave no strap marks. The bandeau was one of the first swimsuit styles accepted by the US, and first came on one-piece bathing suits.

Tankini

The tankini style offers maximum coverage and is an ideal style for those who still want to leave something to be desired, but don’t want to sacrifice fashion. The tankini is similar to a camisole tank top.  A tankini also has the convenience of a two piece so it is PERFECT for babies and toddlers!  Think less skin to worry about with sunscreen!

Stay Warm This Winter with Adorables Children Outerwear

December 15, 2016

For children, winter clothing is just as much about staying warm and cozy as it is about making a fashion statement. Your little ones are very sensitive to the chill of the winter air, so you want to make sure that their ears, face, and hands are extra protected against the cold. If you’re on the hunt for stylish kids’ outerwear items that they’ll want to wear all winter long, check out these favorites from Adorables Children.

  • Puffer coats. These coats are always a favorite among even the pickiest children, because the cozy stuffing and soft exteriors are much more comfortable than wool coats. We carry a wide variety of puffer coats in fun colors like hot pink and metallic gold, and some even feature faux fur details for a bit of extra style.
  • Fleece coats. If you prefer something a bit more modern for a formal occasion, a fleece coat is a great children’s alternative to a pea coat. These coats have similar styles to pea coats, but their fleece materials make them much more comfortable to wear on children’s skin. You’ll find options with splashy floral prints, ruffles, polka dots and much more.
  • Faux fur vests. Your little fashionista will love wearing a luxurious vest over a long-sleeved top or sweater. These stylish outerwear items are warm and cozy, but they’re much more fashionable than your traditional kids’ clothes.
  • Knit scarves. You can’t go wrong with a classic knit scarf, especially on a day of riding sleds or building snowmen. Adorables Children carries a variety of multicolored scarves made especially for little girls.
  • Knit hats. Complete her winter outerwear look with a knit hat that matches her scarf – or one in a fun mix-and-match style! Choose one with a pom pom on top, a floral decal, or in a Parisian-inspired beret shape.

Helping Kids Understand Giving During the Holidays

December 15, 2016

It’s no secret that the presents are the main reason why all kids love the holidays, but as a parent, you may wonder how you can explain to true meaning of the season to kids at a young age. Here are a few easy to understand tips for explaining giving and compassion to your children this holiday season.

  • Teach your children about moderation all year long. Instead of promising them a toy for good behavior or buying them everything they want in a store, explain that sometimes in life, you just don’t get everything that you want. Once the holidays roll around, they’ll better understand that it’s not all about asking for gifts and opening presents.
  • Get the kids excited for other fun things surrounding the holidays, such as admiring the lights, setting up the tree, or having a celebration with family. If they’re excited about gatherings and traditions, they won’t be so focused on the presents.
  • Explain that there are some people in the world who don’t receive any presents. Kids don’t understand poverty and misfortune unless you explain these concepts to them, so be sure to help them understand how fortunate they are.
  • Gather gifts for those in need, such as the underprivileged children in your area, the homeless, or veterans. Allow your kids to pick out items themselves and help them to deliver the gifts to give them a feeling of compassion.
  • Collect food for a food bank or shelter. If your child sees that some people appreciate essential items like food and warm clothes more than toys and games, they’ll realize the importance of giving in meaningful ways. 
  • Allow your children to gift small items to their friends and family members as soon as they are old enough to understand the concept. Instead of only waiting to receive their gifts, they’ll also enjoy spreading joy to others at your holiday gathering.

  • Mack & Co. Charcoal Knit Pom Pom Hat. If you love the classic winter hat look, this is the hat to choose! It features a chunky knit with a timeless sweater pattern, as well as a folded hem to keep the ears nice and warm. The pom pom on top adds a pop of color that your little girl will love.
  • Deux par Deux Rose Ballad Hat. This colorful hat is perfect for the little girl who likes to stand out from the crowd. A horizontal knitted pattern wraps around the hat’s sides, while contrasting felt flowers add some flair to the front. It’s perfect for your holiday photos or any outdoor winter activity!

This hat comes in a bright red color that matches Lemon Loves Lime’s other baby clothing items, including their fun dresses, bloomers, and tops. With an elegant rosette decal at the front, it’s perfect for the holiday season.

Designer Spotlight: Mustard Pie

December 15, 2016

If you’re a fan of elegant lace or romantic damask prints, Mustard Pie is the brand for you. Your little lady will look her most stylish in swing dresses, flared leggings and apron dresses from this beloved children’s brand, and you’ll quickly see why this is one of our favorite brands here at Adorables Children.

Mustard Pie began when one creative mom started reminiscing about her own childhood, and instead of pulling out the family photos, she broke out the sewing machine. Each item embodies the whimsy and fun of childhood, and while the brand is very stylish, Mustard Pie always aims to keep things laid-back and down-to-earth. By combining a bit of hippie style with modern pieces like leggings, tunics, pants and headbands, Mustard Pie has created a complete line of clothing and accessories for the modern girl.

Shop Adorables Children’s selection of Mustard Pie dresses and you’ll find mixed and matched prints and patterns in a variety of styles. Flared skirts feature damask prints and textured lace, while bell sleeves add a touch of flower child feel. Just about every dress features layer upon layer of ruffles, as well as loveable details like oversized bows and flower appliques. Pair any Mustard Pie dress with the brand’s matching leggings with cool bell bottom details, and finish the look with a matching headband that will help to tame her mane.

Mustard Pie creates soft and stylish clothing for babies, toddlers and children, as well as special occasion dresses for those holidays and weddings she’ll be attending. Each piece is designed to look a bit outside of the box when compared to the usual children’s clothing, so this brand is ideal for free-thinking parents and their equally creative littles. From hippie-style photoshoots to flower girl duties, Mustard Pie outfits are perfect for many occasions in a little girl’s life.

Kids’ Holiday Style Guide

December 15, 2016

The holidays are just around the corner, and you’re not the only looking to update your wardrobe with stylish winter fashions! If you’re on the hunt for cute and cozy clothing for your little ones, Adorables Children has you covered with warm parkas, holiday headbands perfect for family photos and snuggly leggings that will make her look her most winter-ready. Here are just a few of our must-have items for this winter season.

  • Wide headbands. While headbands look great year round, our wider versions play double duty as ear warmers and hair accessories. She’ll love wearing a tartan or lace headband in a winter shade of red or white, and when you match it to the rest of her outfit, she’ll feel even more chic.
  • Patchwork dresses. Whether you’re looking for the perfect family photo outfit or a sweet outfit for all of those holiday festivities, a patchwork dress is a great option for every cold weather occasion. These unique dresses from our favorite brand Persnickity feature alternating patches featuring multicolored prints and patterns, but their sweet flared skirts and lace underlays keep them perfectly modern and stylish.
  • Tunic tops. If your little lady just isn’t the dress type, dress her in a long tunic top over her favorite leggings or jeans. These longer length shirts are a bit dressier than your usual sweater, and they feature intricate details like lace plackets and billow sleeves to give them an upscale twist.
  • Puffer coats. No matter what else she wears, you always want to make sure that your little girl is warm and protected against the winter air. Gift her a sweet puffer coat in a soft shade of pink or cream to keep her both cozy and stylish.
  • Leggings. This year’s hottest girls’ leggings come in textured fabrics like velvet or knit, and many even feature ruffled details for a bit of a festive flair.

The Kids Denim Trends that are En Vogue this Year

July 19, 2016

There are many things that will change along with the times. Denim isn’t one of those things, as it’s always in style. But it’s always hard to keep track of what’s hot and what’s not. A lot of styles don’t last much more than a season or two, but you don’t have to worry about denim succumbing to this circumstance. Denim has always been a fashion staple for kids and adults alike (remember denim jackets?), but now it’s even more popular than before, with many designer brands offering great denim options for young ones.

What’s trending for 2016?

Buying the trendiest outfits this year is always a hard thing to do because the newest trends are always unpredictable. Even more so when it comes to teen denim fashion trends. Skinny jeans are no longer what’s in for this year, now it’s all about rigid jeans. These jeans guarantee an irresistible and fashionable look, giving off the image of authenticity to add to the mix. This isn’t just an homage to older trends, it’s a full blown fashion revolution that is here to stay.

The Must-Have Summer Fashion for Tweens

July 12, 2016

New experiences, new opportunities, new friends: that’s what the summer is all about. And no matter where you go or where you look, there’s always a new style that’s all the rage. While everyone is shopping reactively, you can shop proactively with our handy, tween-approved summer fashion guide. When all the kids are out playing, going to summer camp, or just enjoying their free time in the sun, you better be sure you have the perfect outfit for each occasion.

Summer trend bonanza

One of the most important considerations when it comes to summer fashion trends the kind of fabric you want to don. A lot of available options often use poly-blends with clothing that isn’t very breathable, and will usually hold sweat stains – not an ideal combination for summer. To avoid this, try to find materials like cotton and linen, which will allow them to absorb perspiration quickly and release it. Silk is another alternative, since it’s very breathable and cooling, with the only downside being that it has to be cleaned somewhat frequently.

Fun in the sun

There are a lot of great deals you can take advantage of this summer. Adorables Children’s Boutique has hundreds of clothing in stock available for you to choose, including hot brands like Mustard Pie’s beautifully designed Shangri La “Reagan” Apron, as well as Deux par Deux’s wonderful “Girl Meet’s World” Chambray Lemony Star Dress.

With just a click of a button, you can browse through the large selection of choices that they have to offer, sort through things like designer and price, so that you can find something that’s the right for you. If you visit their website, AdorablesChildren.com always has a sale going, with some items going as low as 50% off for the current season. If you want something shipped, they also deliver straight to your house, with purchases of $75 or more shipping absolutely free. Don’t forget to visit www.AdorablesChildren.com now to take advantage of these offers and more.

The must have styles for 2016

There’s always much ado when it comes to choosing girls outfits. When you have the right advice, and a trusted store that carriers all the right fashions, then you can completely take the guesswork out of the process. And when you manage to find that magical combination that you and your daughter both like, it’s always a special moment. Here are some style tips that may help with choosing the outfits that are right for your star child.

Many experts say that the latest fashion trends for this year are vibrant shirt dresses for younger fashionistas, as well as blinged-out outfits. When choosing that runway-ready look, try to keep an open mind and try new styles that expand your preconceived fashion notions.

The hot weather that comes with summer should also inspire you to seek out breathable clothing. It’s important to consider the material the outfits you wear are made from. Things such as cotton or linen are especially good during the summertime because they absorb and release sweat very quickly, making the effects of the heat seem unnoticeable.

Where to buy them, where to try them

It’s important to have the trendiest clothes, including beautiful girl’s summer dresses, on hand at all times. Ranging from casual and cool to formal and elegant, having the outfit for just about any situation is a must. What’s great is that you can find great pieces just like these at AdorablesChildren.com.
