Spring is almost here and Easter is two weeks away! If you have daughters and like to dress them up for Easter egg hunts and brunch, now is the time to order your little party dresses and mini blazers! With many schools on Spring Break this week and next, moms may be a bit behind with Easter planning. I have picked a few favorites for last minute shopping if an Easter dress is still on your “to do” list!
The Floral Print V-Back Party Dress from Oscar de la Renta is made of pure cotton and is perfect for a day of twirling, feeling girly and collecting Easter eggs!
Pair it with some classic white Leather Sabrina shoes:
This is the Ralph Lauren Toddler’s & Little Girl’s Embroidered Linen Dress. It has a beautiful scoop neck, empire waist with a Robin’s Egg blue sash that ties in the back — and an embroidered skirt with a crinoline-lined petticoat. It’s a traditional “fancy” girl’s party dress that is machine washable…
Let your little fashionista don her first Marni dress this Easter. This one features a floral print poplin and pleated A-line skirt. It’s cotton and made in Italy. Click here to view it.
This Isabel Garreton dress is a classic. It features a Peter Pan collar (which I love on little girls) and a full skirt with a petticoat. It’s perfect for a visit to church followed by a buffet of Easter petit fours and eclairs!
Anavina smocked dresses are always a hit and we love the pretty pastel pink in their Girl’s Sabine Gingham Silk Dress. You can’t go wrong with gingham at Easter.
I also love this punchy, feminine blue Diamond Party Dress by Oscar de la Renta. It’s got the most delightful scoop back with buttons and a bow. Click the link to view all of the photos.
Here’s a cute one that doesn’t have a designer name attached to it. The great part? It is priced at just $40.60 right now at Macy’s. What a great buy for a dress that may not get used many times! It also has a Peter Pan collar with ruffles, embroidery and a button back. It’s the Rare Editions Little Girl’s Smocked Dress:
Last, here is another great Anavini dress with bunnies – it’s the Little Girl’s Mini-Striped Bunny Float Dress:
Here are the most adorable coats I spotted on the Little Goodall Etsy shop— the Honey Bunny Coat in Pink and Blue. They are delightful!
My retail store, The Well Appointed House has a fun collection of monogrammed dresses for girls and rompers for boys that are fun for Easter. However, the deadline is tomorrow for monogrammed items in time for Easter. So, if you the holiday cut off, you can still order your monogrammed kids clothing now for Spring! Get a head start so when the flowers start peeking through, your little ones are dressed to the nines! Here are some of the offerings:
Since I have two little girls (and a boy) – friends frequently ask me where I like to get cute dresses this time of year for girls. In addition to the dresses I have selected above, my personal favorites are:
–Rachel Riley on Madison Avenue in NYC – I’m a frequent shopper – the dresses are to die for and are top quality.
–Spring Flowers Boutique also on Madison Avenue in NYC
–Baby CZ (they’ve got cute girls dresses and adorable rompers for boys)
–Florence Eiseman (look for your local store, everything is classic)
–Lilly Pulitzer for girls
–Kelly’s Kids – cute, colorful and preppy!
–Janie and Jack – they typically have cute dresses for Spring
Happy Spring Shopping! ~Melissa Hawks
