We love supporting local moms and their businesses. And clothes are most fun to shop for. Prep your preschooler head to toe in local designers because they are more durable, easy to care for. Plus, did we mention how cute (and eco friendly) these local designs are?
6 local shops to pick up cute clothes for your preschooler
A little country, a little play and you get June Isle! The fabrics soften with wear (yay!) and functionality can’t be beat. They thought of almost everything, right down to having the waist belt sewn into the dress so it doesn’t get lost or bunchy in the front.
Pro Tip: if you’re into matching with your little ones, find cutest coordinating dresses here! #twinningiswinning
The husband and wife team behind Nooks are inspired by upcycling materials such as wool and leather. Add in a timeless style with a vintage flair, and you have a winning collection. They have upcycled 500 lbs of wool to date. They have a children’s clothing line as well as their original soft sole wool footwear, which are durable, warm and machine washable. We hear their spirit animal tees are super cute.
Pro Tip: Toss booties into the washing machine for a wash. Lay them flat to dry and they will be good as new.
Known for soft neutrals with a touch if vintage vibe, the designs are timeless and beautiful. You can be sure that pieces from Haven Kids can be passed down for years to come!
Tumble + Roar
Sassy tees and crew necks that are perfect for getting dirty in. Their little boxers are the cutest, and they go up to size 6.
Not ready to let go of the summer vibe yet? Extend it by wearing Aloha Kai. Their Hawaiian inspired tees and hats bring back memories of beach and sand.
Pro tip: don’t put away the tees for winter – layer them with a long sleeve underneath.
