when it comes to holiday outfits for the kids, i tend to go for less sparkle and glitz and more for old world formal. think peter pan collars, wool pants, tailored jackets, mary janes and oxfords. that said, i use the rule of thumb that party wear must also be versatile enough for everyday wear-- for my kids and my own wardrobe.
festive versatility is abound at sugar on snow. if you don’t know the shop, it’s a current obsession of mine since they carry a lot of my favorite brands that were never available in the us till now. brands like nathalie verlinden shoes (to. die. for.) wooly rompers by fub, and handknit sweaters that will give grandma a run for her money by lilly marthe ebener.
adela is debuting her new thanksgiving outfit this week, while we are camped out in cold, rainy texas. she is wearing the ketiketa bolero sweater in the most scrumptious red, paired with classic black t-straps by nathalie verlinden. both of these items are special enough to dress up any outfit, yet we will get a lot of mileage out of them. s h o p s u g a r on s n o w
