With only a few hours left to go in the Momtrends Travel Survey, it looks like many families are staying put this summer. But that doesn't mean we can't dream...and dress like jet setters and fashionistas. I asked one of my best style sleuths to talk about outfitting kids for an"over-the-top" European jaunt. Here's what Carolyn Corley Burgess of Petit Luxe says all the celebs are after this summer:
Dagmar Daley Sack Shirt '?? She'??s one of my all-time favorites, this shirt screams European chic and the cotton is amazing! (this line as a whole has been my absolute best seller among the Manhattan moms) $60.
Lucy Sykes Nancy and Little Nancy dresses (left picture, girl with hat)'?? Absolutely my favorite of all Lucy Sykes'?? current collection. Beautiful, classic and simple (this line is a socialite favorite). $63.60 on sale
Pare Gabia espadrilles--For mom and little miss '?? imported directly from the south of French and just darling
Eliza Gran Lila Baby Set '?? Top and bloomers in a sweet and simple floral (big favorite with Gwyneth Paltrow and Michelle Williams). $76.50
Maloup pajamas '?? (Elias boys pjs pictured to the right) I just imported this line from Paris and am the only US retailer to carry the line. Amazing fabrics and precious designs, reminiscent of Bonpoint back in the day. It'??s a new company and still very under the radar. Just made a sale to a major celeb but was asked to keep sales confidential'?¦
Black Rabbit Mateo lounge pants (pair with Henry Lounge top) '?? Just featured on the cover of Cookie Magazine and perfect for all types of play. The designer is French and spent her childhood between France and California. Sale $35.20
