Spring is here and so is party season. When you have four children like me you are bound to receive a big pile of party invitations and of course the kids love wearing something special which can be a costly business. Don’t worry, thanks to Target‘s Everyday Low Prices you can get the kids party pretty with a pleasant price tag:
Miss 6 is a real girly girl and would be horrified to be sent to a party in anything else but a dress. She would wear dresses every day if she could so I am not surprised by her Target pick, the Girls Star Print Pleat Dress ($25, size 1-7) was made for her. I absolutely love the navy colour, so classy and timeless and very forgiving when it come to little spills, after all a party wouldn’t be a party without a few accidents. The dress closes with buttons at the back for easy dressing and has an elasticised waist to add a nice shape, the pleated skirt always falls down nicely so there is no need to constantly pull on it to keep it neat.
Now I couldn’t find the Girls Spotted Playsuit ($20, size 1-7) online so you’ll have to pop into your local Target store for this one. This super stylish playsuit was the first thing I spotted in store and I knew it would be perfect for miss 4. It was a bit tricky to find the right size, size 4 was just too long in the leg so I went with size 3 (she has a gorgeous ’round’ shape so it’s a tad tight around her belly but I think it only makes her more adorable). Nice bonus: Being a bit more fitted at the ankle the suit won’t drag over the ground so it won’t get damaged or dirty as easily.
The youngest of our bunch is always moving, still a bit wobbly on the legs and needs regular outfit changes so I decided to go for two separate pieces. This will allow you to change just the top or just the bottom if needed. Comfort and easy dressing is a big priority when shopping for a baby so the soft cotton Girls Sorbet Lace Back Tank ($8, size 1-7) and Girls Nautical Daisy Tiered Skirt ($15, size 1-7) are ideal, they’re both easy to mix and match with other items in her wardrobe and the lace detail on the back of the singlet is so cute.
Master 6 sees a garden party as the perfect opportunity to run, climb, jump, roll and be silly with his friends so I went for casual and practical with the Boys Woven Shorts ($15, size 1-7) in green and the Boys Number Print Tee ($8, size 1-7). They are comfortable, easy to wash and wear and toilet breaks are a breeze thanks to the soft, stretchy waistband. As he is the most boisterous of our kids I know clothes may not last that long and with affordable price tags like this I don’t have to be too upset about a stain or a green knee (in saying that I didn’t pick green shorts for no reason).
I couldn’t resist scooping up an extra little outfit for miss Sybbie, as soon I as saw these gorgeous Girls Floral Print Shorts with Belt ($15, size 0-24m) I knew I couldn’t leave the store without them. The pastel colours are very much on trend and the floral print just screams ‘spring’, how sweet is the plaited belt? (I would like one for myself too!). I teamed the shorts up with the Baby Girls Stripe Tee with Pocket ($10, size 0-24m), together the set cost me just $25 which I think is a very fair price.
