From girly lace, fluffy fabrics and adorable bows, these romantic looks comes just in time for springtime. The bouquet of pastel colours and cutesy hues pull inspiration from grandma’s garden, Easter brunch and fancy tea parties.

This Fleur and Dot Water Color Bird Skirt (1) and Top from Over the Loom is absolutely charming (top $59.95, skirt $76.95). Pair it up with a Taffeta Flower clip (2) from Olilia (assorted colours, $16) and these fruity-scented “Glitter Cat” shoes (3) from Mini Melissa ($55). Dandelion Kids has this ruffly wrap dress (4) from Tea ($58), perfect for running around after school, or wearing to brunch. If you want to go ultra-whimsical, this custom-made tea party dress (5) from aggieandfrancois ($219.86) is super fancy and can be easily paired up with a cute bow (6) from Olilia (assorted colours, $16).

Minimalist Minis

Minimalism and kids? While that almost seems like an oxymoron, it’s definitely possible thanks to these easy-to-match basics.

There’s no effort required with these super adorable overalls (1) by Heart and Habit (available at mini moche, $66). Wear this Light Grey Basic Tee (2) by littleCITIZENS ($30) underneath the coveralls, or with these easy-to-wear harem pants (3) by mini moche ($32). The poncho hoody (4) by Heart and Habit (available at mini moche, $58) is a great springtime cover up that matches everything and this infinity scarf (5) by littleCITIZENS ($35) adds a bit of extra warmth on cold spring mornings. For something a little fancier, WHEAT offers this rosy pink tunic (6) for girls ($34), which can easily be worn with skinny jeans or a frilly skirt or this collarless shirt (7) for the boys ($33), which would look dapper with a pair of chinos. Lastly, this coverall (8) by Heart and Habit (available at mini moche, $69) is also on our top list because jumpsuits are so darn versatile!
