Jen Luana is a collection of clothing and accessories curated with family, travel and comfort in mind. All brands are family owned businesses. Below is a post I wrote on my South Florida Lifestyle Blog about children's fashion. I am always happy to share my favorite things with all of you!
The Styled Child
I love dressing up my children in cute, stylish, and unique clothing and I am going to share some of my favorite and go to brands!
Recently I found my new favorite children’s clothing line, BilliesMarket. BilliesMarket has two clothing lines, Billieblush for girls and Billybandit for boys. These clothes are absolutely adorable! The collections are full of bright colors, fun designs, and unique accents like bells on a tutu and neon waist bands. I stumbled upon Billieblush and Billybandit while on vacation in Hawaii. I was wandering through the new International Market Place and came across Kids Atelier. This adorable shop is full of designer kids clothing for boys and girls, with clothes available from baby to tween sizes. I have four children aged 3, 4, 7, and 8 (three daughters and a son) and I was able to find an adorable outfit for each of them.
Me & Kay is my new go-to for girls fashion. This new online boutique carries the trendiest collection of girls clothing! I want one of each for my girls! Some of our favorite things that we have purchased from Me & Kay are tunics in purple and red which are not only pretty, but light and comfortable for hot summer days. An assortment of pom pom necklaces I picked up are the girls favorite accessories at the moment. They come in a bunch of fun designs and colors.
For quality and stylish baby and toddler clothes, CocoMingos has a great selection. If someone special is expecting a baby CocoMingos is also a great place to buy a baby gift. My three year old loves her pink tutu and unicorn top from CocoMingos!
For everyday wear my favorite brands are Gap Kids and Hanna Anderson. Both brands carry affordable and comfortable play gear for all seasons, for both boys and girls. Hanna Anderson pajamas are some of the best out there! They come in super cute prints, and some are available in matching styles for the whole family. Gap kids is constantly offering coupon codes, great deals, and sales on their merchandise. Our Gap and Hanna Anderson clothes have made it through 3 girls and all of my sons clothes have been passed on in near perfect condition for other little boys to enjoy.
Shoes are important for active and growing children. I know they wear them out and outgrow them fast, but good support on their little feet is essential. Try to find good quality brands when they are on sale. My favorite shoes for the kids right now are Go Plae. These fit slightly on the larger side, I think because they are wider than the average shoe. The wider design makes them a little more comfortable for chubby toddler feet. They come in a variety of colors and styles for all weather and they have recently launched their water shoes and summer styles. I am putting my kids in these for the summer so they can go from pool, to beach, to playground no problem! We travel often so having shoes that serve multiple purposes helps to cut down on over packing, which is a definite bonus for my family.

As much as I love my kids to be dressed nicely, I do always consider their comfort. I don’t buy anything that is not comfortable, washable, and child friendly. My kids are highly active and always on the go. But it is definitely possible to be chic and comfortable!
