You guys! I feel like it has been so long since I have shared an amazing small shop with you, I’m so sorry! Life with the move has been so busy! But fear not, I’m sharing with you today one of our new favorite shops! Aila and Frankie is a beautiful children’s clothing shop with the most beautifully made, timeless pieces.
Laurie, the shop’s owner, has such an eye for perfect textiles and pairs prints together for such a beautiful result. She kindly sent me a romper for Ada this summer but with the craziness of the move, I hadn’t had an opportunity to share it with you!
I absolutely love this style of romper, but most shops I have found online, only make them in baby sizes- Ada is a tall 6 year old and I was so ecstatic when I found Aila and Frankie and discovered that I could order these beautiful rompers in her size! The halter style top fits into loops on the back of the romper and can be adjusted to your child’s height and the elastic along the back is sized perfectly, as well. Ada is going through a phase where she is very picky about fit and textures with her clothing and I was so glad that the fit on this romper is something that didn’t cause a battle! It has been so perfect this summer for the high temps we have had. It will be perfect for early fall too, paired with a cardigan!
As if that wasn’t good enough, Laurie is getting ready to launch her fall line and I’m going to share a little peek of her fall collection for you! She sent me these photos with the most incredible designs! The style of this dress is so gorgeous and the fit is beautiful. As always, Laurie doesn’t disappoint with the textile choices, the colors are just perfect for this season! These dresses could be worn into the cooler months with tights.
The vintage style and fit on these dresses is beyond perfect! I think they are the perfect back to school dresses.
Aila and Frankie apparel is all handmade in the USA and has been in business since 2010! Laurie’s attention to detail has made Aila and Frankie one of my new favorite places to go shop for Ada.
