Summer must-have styles!

Summer styles can get SO overwhelming because let’s face it.. they are all amazing! Summer is my favorite season so I might be a little biased but I can’t get enough of the vibrant colors and breezy fabrics. As well as the lighter palettes of white and neutral tones that have a fresh feel. In trying to make things easier for you we decided to collect our must have summer styles from This and That for Kids!

Let’s start with an obvious…BATHING SUITS! A little girl in a two piece bathing suit is so stinkin’ cute! Whats not so cute is when the top starts moving around a gets a little too revealing, as well as uncomfortable! This and That for Kids bathings suits feature a lengthy top with smocked details and a ruffle for extra coverage. The top is fully adjustable as it ties both at the neck and around the back.

And of course we have the little men covered as well! With matching boys swim trunks also available at This and That for Kids get ready for the best and cutest summer ever! They are comfortable and cute for any beach or pool day. The fabric content is 45% polyester, 55% cotton. They drawstring allows for a comfortable and secure fit.

Next up we have one of our newest additions, our Hand Smocked watermelon styles! Our favorite thing about this style is the combination of the red and pink in the fabric with the touch of white to break it up. Being that it is summer, the angel sleeves with pink ric-rac are a nice touch as it will keep your daughter cool on hot summer days. We recommend a red bow with this outfit but a pink or even green bow will also be a great finishing touch.

 

 

 

 

Now let’s take it down to those neutral tones I mentioned earlier. Our Hand Smocked Sea Shell Collection features a light blue fabric with white sea shells. This particular style comes in so many styles that there are options for kids of any age, making it the perfect outfit for a family photo! These styles are all comfortable for the hot summer days because of the design of the sleeves on the girl styles and the lack there of on the boy styles! The fabric is a lightweight pique fabric to ensure breathability.

And lastly we will take the colors back up a notch with one of our favorite newest additions! Our octopus and friends… the name alone shows just how playful and fun the hand smocked detailing on this style is! The girls outfits are made from a turquoise blue polka dot fabric with angel sleeves and pink trim while the boys overall has a micro check fabric in the same turquoise as the girls. All the sea animals featured are different colors on both the girl and boy variations! And we think the girl styles look adorable with a pink hair bow! The boy overall has the option for a white peter pan collar shirt which makes it great for transitioning from a hot summer day to a cool summer night!

Fake it ’til you make it!

Alright, the first step is admitting it right? Our children aren’t ACTUALLY royalty.

There I said it.

You’re little prince isn’t really a prince, and as charming and adorable as she may be, your princess isn’t a real princess either (but don’t tell her that!).

Just because this is the harsh reality it doesn’t mean they can’t be dressed like heirs to the thrown! Let’s take a look at the handsome little Prince George

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

He has definitely won over the hearts of many in his stylish smocked outfits and why wouldn’t he? Its such a timeless look. Our favorite thing about children in smock is that the outfits can be passed down from generation to generation! Take a look at this side by side of sweet Prince George and his father in similar outfits

Although those aren’t the same outfits it does enforce the fact that if saved these outfits are timeless! Imagine how sweet it will be when you see your grandchildren in something you purchased for your own child years before!

Here are some hand smocked boys outfits we recommend to get your boy looking like royalty!

BeigeGeoOverall

 

 

This Hand Smocked Beige Geometric Boy’s Overall screams royalty. It’s simple and elegant, making it the perfect outfit for any occasion, and any generation. Pair it with a shirt underneath for colder days or leave it as is for the summer months.

Prince George is a perfect symbol for Cambridge but let your little guy stand tall and proud in our Hand Smocked American Flag Overall. This boys overall would be perfect for Memorial Day, Independence Day, President’s day, and all summer long!

Paint the rainbow in This and That for Kids!

Summer is coming… well in our minds it is already here! And nothing better for summer style than color! So today we decided to round up a This and That for Kids rainbow for you and showcase some great pieces in every color!

RED

Above you can see a variety of different style to suit your every need! All part of our latest collection and so comfortable! The red stripes capri leggings, perfect for so many occasions and has a swing top that can be monogrammed to make it even more special.   (the matching red hairbow is a must!).  The fabric content on that piece as well as the other two comfy knits pictured is 100% cotton. Also picture is our turquoise crab applique styles, can we just say … OBSESSED! We love the combination of the red polka dot fabric with the vibrant turquoise crab. We love the angel sleeve detailing and turquoise ric-rac to tie everything together. Adding a monogram and bow really tops this look off as well. The items above also have matching outfits for siblings, which we adore!

ORANGE

OK, OK… so we don’t have much orange but what we do have is so cute! We love that our striped knits have just a touch of orange, I mean do you see those ruffles?! And we love how affordable and wearable the orange boys overall is. If you guys would like to see more orange items added to our site comment below and let us know!

YELLOW

Yellow like the summer sunshine! Yellow is the color of happiness and This and That for Kids girls are ALWAYS happy. These comfy knits are great for summer because they are light and airy, and 100% cotton which means they are super soft! We are currently loving our Tunic and legging sets because you can mix and match them with pieces already in your closet! They can become staple pieces in your childs wardrobe.

GREEN

Just as cheerful a color as yellow, green always makes us happy. Tired of seeing our comfy knits yet? We aren’t ! Picture them on the weekends at a birthday party, or at the beach, or at a friends house, or a day at the mall, or ANYTHING! And can we please give the dump truck overall some love?! Because we absolutely love the boys will be boys nature of this overall as well as the other constructions overalls available at This and That for Kids. Aside from the adorable apple green tones, we have a sweet mint geometric bishop that would be a great church dress or perfect for other holidays as well. Make sure to head over to This and That for Kids to see the full spectrum of green tones available.

BLUE

Boy was it tough to pick just a few of our favorite blue styles! So many to choose from so make sure to head to our site and see the full collection. What we are really loving right now is the nautical style, there is just something about the combo of the navy and red that has us drawn to it. We are also loving the boys flag overall because with memorial day and fourth of July coming up we think it is a great way to commemorate our wonderful country. If you want to take it a step lighter our light blue seashell style is what you’re looking for, we have two girl styles and two boy styles available for you to choose from.

If this array of colors wasn’t enough for you, don’t forget we have hair bows in EVERY color!

 

Hope you enjoyed this summer inspiration! Talk to you guys next week, make sure to comment below and share with your friends on facebook!

Easter Blessings & Ideas

We cannot thank you guys enough for all the support over the last month or so and are so happy you have all loved our Easter collection. We wanted to make sure everyone was covered for Easter no matter how much you may have put it off so we hosted sales to the very last minute! Happy to say, all orders made it on time! Here are some adorable pics that have already started coming in, we hope that you will send us pictures of your kids in their This and That for Kids Easter outfits!

(click to enlarge)

There is nothing better than Easter with little ones around! The excitement in the morning to open their Easter baskets, the joy that comes from Easter egg hunts and, we may be biased but, seeing all the little ones in their adorable easter outfits definitely tops the list!

We love getting together with family and friends every easter and watching the kids play and have a good time. The kids, of course, are just counting down the minutes until the Easter egg hunt! Below are some great ideas we have found for a successful egg hunt this year!

This first tip is great if you don’t have too many kids participating, as well as when you have kids of different ages. The older kids tend to be better and quicker at finding eggs which can sometimes be unfair to the younger kids. To avoid this from happening, assign a specific color to each child and they can only collect eggs of their color! With this tip you can also tailor what’s inside the eggs for the child that will be collecting it!

Another fun thing to do is put a number inside an egg, the number will then correspond to a special prize AKA a toy or candy that didn’t fit inside the egg.

If you want to challenge and engage the kids a little more you can turn the Easter egg hunt into a scavenger hunt! Still sprinkle eggs around the yard but also provide a list with different things for them to find throughout their egg hunt. Examples would be to find a flower, a specific color egg, a pinecone, etc. You can award a special prize to the first kid to complete the scavenger hunt!

If you really want to switch things up, host a glow in the dark hunt! Fill the eggs with glow sticks and hide them around the yard, when it gets dark enough the eggs will stand out and the kids will have a blast!

And finally, something we did as a family when some of the kids got older was have them hide the eggs for the younger kids! This is a fun way to keep everyone involved in the tradition!

One more thing to do this Easter, make sure to snap a picture and send them to customercare@thisandthatforkids.com or post the to our facebook page or tag us on instagram! Can’t wait to see them and we hope you have a happy and bless Easter Sunday!

XOXO,

This and That for Kids!

Fast Shipping GUARANTEED

Screen Shot 2016-03-02 at 10.48.44 AM

…and ALWAYS shipping!

Here at This and That For Kids we are online consumers just like all of you. We know what it is to order something online and wish you could receive it the very next day… ok let’s be honest in a perfect world we would receive it 5 minutes after placing the order!

We also know what its like to decide last minute to order an item for a specific occasion and worry about whether or not it will arrive on time. Checking the tracking information every five minutes to see exactly where your package is. Has it left the warehouse? Is it on the truck? Did it get to my house? You can feel at ease when ordering with us, and if you are unsure whether it will truly make it on time or not just call us and we can make the decision together about whether or not it is too late to order.

Being that we know this feeling of anticipation we want to make your waiting time as short as possible even with monogrammed pieces. How do we make this possible? We have a team working around the clock focused solely on pulling and shipping your orders. Aside from that we have our monogram specialist who is also working around the clock making sure each and every piece is just as special as the customer who will be receiving it.

We refuse to sell pieces that we don’t have in stock and ready to ship. Things happen, we don’t control the weather or manufacturing delays therefore we can’t risk our good name and promise of fast shipping by relying on an estimated time of arrival. If it isn’t in our hand it won’t be on our site!

Aside from our quick turn around we also offer free or low shipping costs depending on your order. We know what it’s like to get a little carried away in ordering online and then noticing outrageous shipping fees and quickly exiting the browser and getting nothing at all, and thats no fun!

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, we pride ourselves on great customer service and strongly feel that quick shipping goes hand in hand with that. We hope you have been and continue to be satisfied with our quick turnaround time.

XOXO,

This and That For Kids
