wear it – kids coats – girl edition

i think i’ve said it before (i know i have), shopping for kids is HARD. i think before i had kids, it was one of those things i thought would be kind of fun. dressing this cute little person. and sometimes, it is. but prior to having kids, what you forget to include in your fantasy, is what it’s like to SHOP with kids, get them to try things on (FORGET IT) and here’s the kicker- at the age of TWO, have an opinion about what they will, and what they definitely WILL NOT, wear.

so. fun.

coats are their own minefield. my kids seem to always be running just a little hot. it’s cold out, i want them to be warm, but getting a kid in a coat is like getting a pack and play back in a bag. feasibly it can happen, but it’s a process. also, there are a lot of useless coats out there. ill made hoods (don’t stay on, not big enough, misshapen), bad fabrics (must be very washable) and frankly, for girls- just plain silly. the purpose of a coat is warmth. a shiny satin looking coat with no lining? can’t imagine the purpose. so my road for coats this year has been long. the hood needs to be good (preferably fur trimmed), there needs to be a warm lining, and it needs to be long enough that bellies don’t get cold. my mother-in-law recently ordered the CUTEST coat for my daughter, and when it arrived, i was pained to realize the buttons weren’t faux. no zipper! what 1 year old holds still long enough to button up 6 double breasted buttons? not realistic. so, i’m back on the hunt.  this is what i’ve found.

this little red coat (with the plaid peeking out) was adorable. some great looks for men and women, and just a reminder, everything was available at bellevue square! i loved picking out little details, and seeing where i could get them. i have a bit of a coat fetish, and have been wondering about the shape i’d like to get this year… i’m wanting something long, and cozy. for all the runway looks, be sure to click Read more →

i have been wanting one of those oversize knit caps. mainly just so i don’t have to fix my hair, but also because i think they’re so urban (and they’d ‘go’ with my oversize, chunky knit obsession). who remembers what designer did them a few years back… was it marc jacobs?

isn’t his jacket fab?
