Is anyone else ready for the sun right about now!? We definitely are at our house! We’ve had so much rain the past two months. Every time the sun finally peaks out for a day I notice my mood improves immensely! I’m so excited to be partnering with Nordstrom today to share some fun ideas for kids’ Spring fashion! It’s my favorite season to shop for new clothes for my kids. So many bright colors and fun patterns that remind me of happy times in warm weather with family and friends. I know that is in our future and I need the reminder right now!
Nordstrom is having a HUGE Spring sale (up to 50% off!) and the selection for kids’ clothes is honestly the best I’ve seen. I got these two so many cute things! *If it helps with sizes I buy 10-12 for Kole (he’s 10 years old so a bit large with room to grow) and Addison (even though she’s 13) also wears size 10-12. She’s the shortest student at her middle school and is now wearing the same size as her brother who is 4 years younger. (Sorry Ad.. when you feel mad at me for passing on the short gene remember that you like your thick hair.. we can’t win them all.) ;) First let’s talk swim suits! I’ve learned to get new suits for my kids in April because by May/June when it’s really warming up most of the cute suits in their sizes are sold out. Addison tried this suit on in my closet and my jaw dropped. We both fell in LOVE! The pattern, the flattering fit.. it’s seriously our favorite swim suit she has ever worn. I wish I would have taken a pic of the back because it’s just as cute as the front. Kole’s suit ran a little big on him (an 8 would have been perfect in this one) but it will work this summer and be perfect for next summer. Love this rash guard too!
There we go.. that’s the warm weather smile and laugh I was looking for. :)
What do you know.. Kole’s hair matches his swim suit. *Thanks again Kenny. I owe you a fun surprise that you’ll love just as much as I’ve loved Kole’s hair.
Same happy 4th grader. Same rash guard. Same blue hair. Different swim shorts. :) These shorts were a perfect fit!
This is a pic of Kole a couple of years ago wearing this All Day Unity Rashguard. It’s a long time favorite of ours and also fits great. I buy him a new one just like it every year!
This floral cap sleeve suit is another favorite Ad and I loved! These two are so ready for the sun. They’ve been getting in the pool since February even though the water has been freezing! I always have to hurry and turn on the hot tub before their lips turn blue. :)
Isn’t the back cute!? The swimsuits at Nordstrom are adorable this year! Here is a round-up of my favorites. So hard to pick just one!
You can’t have a cute suit without a cute cover-up! This red sheer ruffle cover-up is darling! Lightweight and feminine and perfect to throw on over a suit. Ad loves it. :) Havaiana Flip Flops are also long time favorites.
These are the fun Spring sandals Addison and I picked out for her this year. Both so cute! Here are a few other cute options for girls. So adorable this year!
Now on to the clothes! This blue floral romper is too much fun for Spring/Summer. Such a comfortable cute fit and perfect to go out or for lazy days relaxing at home.
When I put this outfit together in our on-line cart Ad wasn’t so sure. She said “mom.. I don’t know if I love that.. it looks like something you would wear.” Ha. It does! I have a thing for army green and I was secretly hoping the Eagle Rock graphic tee would run big and accidentally end up in my closet. :) But then she tried it on. And guess what outfit she absolutely loves!? So much she has decided it’s a contender for her first day of high school in the Fall.
These shorts are so flattering and the tee can be worn multiple ways. It’s a little long and she had it tied with jean shorts yesterday – darling! We had a nice chat about how she needs to trust her mother’s instinct ALWAYS about EVERYTHING. Choices, boys, school, clothes. Mom knows best.
The size 16 Eagle Graphic Tee might have found a way into my cart.
She can match me while she heeds my trusted advice. ;)
These cute cargo pants are another mom favorite that Ad now loves too. :) Really flattering! The Nike top can be dressed up or worn with a sports bra and leggings to exercise. It comes in a hot pink too and Ad has both. Really cute top you can wear lots of ways!
Love this cozy knit jumpsuit! I knew it would be perfect for lounging at home this Spring and then cute to wear out about about. As soon as it’s ok to be out and about.
For now.. Let’s Stay Home. :)
Me and my mini. Gaining muscles by the hour! Not really but it’s fun to pretend. :) I’ve been a tad obsessed with Nike lately! I’ve loved my crop fleece sweatshirt so much that when I came across this similar crop hoodie for Ad I couldn’t pass it up! So cute and it has been perfect for all of our evening family walks when it’s cool outside.
Because we have been going on so many walks lately (sometimes twice a day because it’s our only outing) I picked up this cute split back top for her too. Kole is wearing his dry elite basketball shorts (we have these in 3 colors!) and his Nike performance top – great for exercise. My favorite socks for Kole are these Tucker & Tate quarter socks (all Tucker and Tate socks are the best and I’m stocking up while they are marked down!) and my favorite shoes for him are these Adidas Sneakers (another color option here). Like his shorts we have them in several colors. Boys are easy to dress aren’t they? When I find something I love for Kole I just buy multiples!
On a walk yesterday and Kole is wearing those same shorts in white. He was cracking me up with his umbrella! There was a small chance of rain and he wanted to be prepared. Ha. Did you notice Kenny has a friend on his shoulder again? :)
Kole’s top he’s had for a while and has sold out but these Nike shorts are another favorite of his.
So is this black tee! And this knot tank Ad is wearing is darling. I said “smile” and got this instead. Pretty much sums these two up! (Sorry for the double jointed gene Ad. The bad news is it comes with knee issues and strange looking “straight” arms.. the good news is it’s the reason you’re so crazy flexible. We can’t win them all.) ;)
There’s what mom was looking for. :)
Last beautiful Spring top for this post.. isn’t it darling!? These jean shorts are so cute too. They run a little small – we could have sized up to a 14 in them so I’d go up a size in these! (I’ll share more porch details soon when it’s done.. just starting to spruce it up for Spring!)
Proud of this sweet girl. And her sister. Who sadly has grown out of kids’ clothes! We were just about to chop Ad’s hair for a fun change right before the stay home order. It’s getting so long!
So for being quarantined with these two monkeys hasn’t been too bad! They each get along so well with Ellie, but Ad and Kole can be best friends or mortal enemies depending on the time of day. I was a little worried about them spending so much time together. Let me re-phrase that. I was a little worried about my sanity with them having to spend so much time together! While we’ve certainly had our moments, for the most part they have been getting along so well and we’ve all been having a lot of fun together. I know it’s not easy for my kids right now. They are all 3 really missing their friends! But we are making the most of it and really enjoying this slower pace. With plenty of time to take pictures for mom! Ad was thrilled about this post and happy to be in pictures because she loves the clothes! Kole I had to bribe with a little iPad time, but he was a good sport. ;)
That’s a wrap! I wore these two right out. ;)
I hope this post gave you some fun ideas for kids’ Spring clothes this year! Such a great selection at Nordstrom and their recent sales have been crazy good. I love shopping for our whole family at Nordstrom because you just can’t beat the service and quality. I’ve also been so impressed with all they are doing to help sew masks and give back during this difficult time. Proud to partner with them!
Enjoy the rest of your day! We have rain in our forecast again but we’re hoping to sneak in a walk.
Kole has his umbrella ready so we should be set. ;)
