Winter capsules for kids.

November 3, 2017

 

After trying my own capsule wardrobe I realized I should be doing this for my kids too.! They don’t need much, and usually want to wear the same favorites over and over again. Sound familiar? I usually get most of my kids’ clothes at consignment shops or old navy, and love supporting small shops when I can. I found some great separates that work well for a kids capsule wardrobe for fall and winter months as thought starters if you need some ideas!

 

Motherhood in a nutshell, am I right? can’t keep up! (Me: Sweater, skirt , boots. Girls: are wearing Shop Bitte leotard,  Crew and Lu stripes and socks, Old Navy shoes)

 

 

 

Striped top / chambray top / bows / autumn road bloomers / jacquard dress / striped skirt / fluffy sweater / cord jeggings / plaid dress / tulle skirt / cardigan sweater / fox socks / vintage dress necklace

These are thought starters, but each girl can generally can get buy with a few skirts, a few dresses, 3 pants, and 7 tops and sweaters. Somehow Veronica still wears holes into most of her clothing so really appreciating the thicker clothing these days!

 

 

checked hoodie / beanie hats / stripe hoodie / ‘cold’ sweater / cars tee / shawl collar sweater / corduroy pants / fair isle sweater / socks / jogger pants

My boys also play hard and usually destroy their clothes quick, so I appreciate these well made durable items from Peekaboo Beans (super soft and thick material).

I also love the European styles for kids because they still have that old fashioned look.  For special occasions it is nice to have a good dress or sweater on hand like the Olivia Ann line.

For playtime dresses, Shop Plain Jane are hands down my favorites. This shop is run by a mother who really gets the fact that girls like to climb, jump, and get messy too.

Shop Bitte is a favorite for toys and gifts, but they carry some really great clothing options as well. This is a new small business so I like to support them!

For outerwear and shoes, I generally try to get back with 2-3 pairs of shoes each, and 2 coats. My friend Janssen just launched her rain boot shop London Littles, and they are the most adorable pairs!

We had a growing pile of hand-me downs with my boys and just donated an entire bag of coats to a local shelter. Better for them to be put to use by someone who really needs them! What are some of your favorite resources for kids’ clothes? Have you lasted a season with a select amount of items?

Happy weekend!
