2013 children's summer fashion guide.

Linna in her Camouflage
Desiree Ribbon Flare Dress

a cute little skirt.

I recently found this store called Camouflage in Vivo City in Singapore, and may or may not have walked out with a few new outfits for Linna. I am in love with their clothing. Not only are the boy and girl pieces adorable, but the prices won't break the bank. Camouflage is known for their fashions for boys and girls, that look like miniature versions of clothes that moms and dads wear. Camouflage has five retail stores across Singapore and an online store that ships internationally. Their clothing aims at the 0-8 year-olds, and I can tell you that their clothing fits pretty true to size (doesn't run big or small). I love their dresses for little girls, especially the royal blue dress I got for Linna, which has a bow around the neck. I also got a shirt for Linna that says "My Entire Life is Being Posted on Facebook", which is obviously a perfect shirt for her. Most of the one-piece outfits and dresses at Camouflage are in the S$35 range, with most bottoms and tops between S$25 to S$35. This is one of my new favorite clothing stores in Singapore!

Linna in her Elly Wonderland Dress.


I received an Elly dress as a gift for Linna while living in Singapore, and soon after, I was introduced to this adorable line of children's clothing for boys and girls. Elly is run by two sisters who decided to bring the variety and uniqueness of clothing found all over the world, to everyone around them. Elly (the elephant) has scouted cities in search of beautiful pieces for children, and his stories of adventure can be found in the clothing, accessories, and toys designed by the Elly brand.  I absolutely love their dresses for little girls. They are easy to throw on our busy little toddlers, and I know my daughter stays cool while wearing them in the Singapore heat. The button-up shirts for the boys are made with fabrics that are similar to the girls' pieces. I got Linna's dresses a size bigger than she currently is, so she'll be able to wear them now (a little baggy), and a year from now! Elly's clothing washes very easily, doesn't fall apart, and I simply hang them out to dry so they don't shrink. They carry sizes 9 months to 6 years. I'm excited to see this company's latest designs!

Linna in her Old Navy Tiered RuffleBikini -
On sale now for $8.
Old Navy

I don't think a summer or winter goes by without my sister-in-law and I buying clothing from Old Navy for Linna. Old Navy is pretty much a staple store for Minnesota parents, and it's easy to see why. Their clothing is affordable, fashionable, and they have a variety for both boys and girls. I always buy Linna's shorts and pants from Old Navy because they are classic, inexpensive, and go with just about any top. Their summer dresses are also super cute and very affordable too. If we ever have a couple birthday parties coming up for Linna's little friends, I order clothes for the birthday boy or girl online, and have it shipped to me for FREE ($50 purchase). Easy peasy! Old Navy is one of my go-to stores for cute mommy clothing too.


When you see Zutano clothing on a child, you'll know right away it's Zutano. Their pieces are super easy to mix and match, while featuring prints that are bright, fun, and unique. Located in Vermont, Zutano sources soft cottons for each new product, creating a line of quality clothing and accessories in a rainbow of colors and prints. They are inspired by a love of babies, and the belief that every child’s individuality can be celebrated. You can find Zutano clothing at Mother's Work in Singapore, at stores all over Minnesota, and online. They carry clothing and accessories for newborns up to size 4T, and offer free shipping for orders over $50. I can't get enough of the Sunshine Top! It's a reversable top for under $30, so you're basically getting two cute tops in one. It has a unique criss-cross back, and layers easily over long or short-sleeve tops, or worn with shorts on hot days. Linna has a Sunshine Top in Zutano's Dizzy Daisy print on one side, with periwinkle candy stripe on the reverse  side. Love them!

Pediped Light Brown Grip n' Go Jake.
Shoes by Pediped

Linna has been wearing Pediped shoes since she was a newborn, and I am completely in love with their new summer styles. Whether your child is crawling, learning to walk, or running all around, Pediped has a stylish shoe that will fit comfortably and ensure healthy foot development. Pediped has three footwear lines specially designed to meet the needs of a particular walking stage. Linna has been wearing the Silver Flex Vivian all summer, because they go with almost any one of her summer outfits. The White Grip n' Go Nikki is another one of our summer favorites for girls, and we love the Light Brown Grip n' Go Jake is a summer shoe that will go with almost any outfit for the boys. You can find Pediped shoes at many stores in both Minnesota and Singapore.

Shoes by Little Grass Hoppers

I'm completely obsessed with these new shoes I found in Singapore for Linna. We discovered Little Grass Hoppers at the Bukit Timah Fire Station Market a couple weekends ago, where the owner of Little Grass Hoppers (Sabrina) was selling the shoes. The first thing I fell in love with was the brightly-colored loafers for the little ones. Then, I saw the price. I totally thought I'd be running the family into bankruptcy by making a couple purchases for Linna, but the shoes were only about $20 a pair! This company just launched in March of this year. Although Sabrina (the owner) doesn't design or make the shoes herself, she travels around the world to find her quality products. Plus, she will ship the shoes worldwide! Linna has been "hopping" all over Singapore in these shoes, and they wear really well. Check out the Little Grass Hoppers website for shipping prices and policies. I would order a size or two bigger, because these shoes do tend to run on the smaller size, and with our little ones' feet growing a mile a minute, you'll want them to wear these adorable shoes as long as possible!
