Spring weather has finally arrived in our neck of the woods and we couldn't be more thrilled. The warmer weather and sunny skies are begging to be enjoyed. Just as fall inspires a certain color palette, we think spring warrants new outfits to complement the season. This year one trend we love for kids (and moms, too!) is stripes. You simply can't go wrong with the classic pattern. We're excited to be sharing some stripes for spring from our friends at Ralph Lauren.
The iconic brand has a complete collection designed for children starting at size 2 and up to 20 in boys and 16 in girls. We styled two different coordinated looks for our three kids: seersucker and classic polo stripes.
Ralph Lauren Children Seersucker
Crafted from lightweight cotton seersucker, Ralph Lauren pieces balance the timeless feel with decidedly modern style. The kids look classic and contemporary all at once. And, let's be honest, they look pretty darling. The cherry blossoms created the perfect backdrop to show off these spring styles.
The boys are wearing the same shirt and shorts in coordinating colors. The button down shirt features the signature embroidered pony on chest. The shorts have an adjustable waist to help last through the season (and beyond).
On Max: Cotton Oxford Blake Shirt in White ($35, on sale $24.99) & Cotton Seersucker Short in Blue Multi ($49.50, on sale $37.99)
On Jack: Cotton Oxford Blake Shirt in BSR Blue ($35, on sale $24.99) & Cotton Seersucker Short in Red Multi ($49.50, on sale $37.99)
The Lace-Trim Seersucker Dress has delightful details that enhance the seersucker stripes with feminine touches. The spaghetti straps are adjustable to achieve the proper fit around the top. The skirt of the dress is pleated around the waist to add a sweet shape to the silhouette of the dress. The modest length (it falls slightly below the knee on my daughter, in a size 7) balances the sleeveless top.

After lots of pictures and exploring the cherry blossoms, the kids were thrilled to pick some treats. I took comfort knowing the clothes are machine washable!

We've hit the winter lull--that lengthy stretch of season with no plans, no parties, nothing to do, and nowhere to go. I have to admit that at first, I welcomed the quiet obligation-free weekends of January. After the nonstop hustle-bustle pace of November and December, my family ...read more
Ralph Lauren Children Polo Stripes
When it comes to Ralph Lauren, it doesn't get more iconic than a striped polo with the signature embroidered pony on the chest. The bright navy and red stripes of the shirt are vibrant and perfect to wear throughout the spring, summer and into the fall. The basic sand colored shorts are the perfect complement.
I think we've saved the best for last. The Ribbon Dress is truly something special. The cotton silk material is divine and the buttons and bows down the back are begging for attention.
