If you’ve been searching for inspiration for toddler boy outfits, look no further than Henry here, who’s rocking a graphic tank top from Emile et Ida and shorts from Bon Bon. Finding clothes for boys that are void of cliche designs and generic prints but still stylish and practical can be difficult – especially when he wants a say in what he wears.  So when we find options that are fashionable and sophisticated, durable enough for boys’ active days, and most importantly appeal to both you and him, we know we need to jump on it. Thanks Henry!

P.S. Head on over to our site to shop our summer clothes for boys.

Here’s a cool collaboration to look out for later this month: Petit Bateau is teaming up with up-and-coming Finnish designer Satu Maaranen, the 2013 winner of the Grand Prix du Jury at the Hyeres International Festival in the South of France to create a capsule collection for both women and children. It is the first in a three year partnership between the festival and the classic French brand, where each designer will be given free rein to explore his or her own artistic vision while still remaining true to Petit Bateau’s classic aesthetic. From the looks of it, Maaranen certainly succeeds at this, by giving Petit Bateau’s classic Breton tops, dresses, and tops slightly updated silhouettes and a fresh dose of color. The collection launches April 29th in Petit Bateau boutiques worldwide and will be available for babies, kids, and adults.

Meet your daughter’s new best friend! Based out of Northern California, Jess Brown dolls are truly unique treasures and it is easy to understand why. Lovingly crafted using recycled muslin and linen, antique buttons, and a sustainable corn fiber stuffing, these dolls are an example of recycling at its most elegant and sophisticated. “There is something truly beautiful about a threadbare, worn, and well loved doll that has been created with the finest materials.” Each doll is cut to order and hand dyed in Persian black teas, meaning that the final result is a one-of-a-kind work of art. Appreciated by kids and adults alike, these dolls spark creativity, encourage imaginative play, and are sure to become one of your daughter’s most loved keepsakes. They make great gifts, too! View the entire collection here.

P.S. If you’re interested, here’s a beautiful video on Jess Brown’s doll-making process.
