Fall is by far my favorite style season. A chunky oversize sweater, boyfriend jeans and a brand-new pair of booties make for a very fresh outfit and a fashionable way to ring in cooler days and crisper nights. Of course, miniaturize these autumn essentials, and I’ll be over here drooling into my pumpkin spice latte. From flannel button-downs for babies to toddler-sized toggle cardigans and other sweet-as-pecan-pie kids’ clothes, seasonal style just doesn’t get any cuter. Or does it? We’ve rounded up a few favorite finds for your littlest love — your pint-size pumpkin and the apple of your eye.
Gap Apple Peplum Sweater
I like to dress my babies for any and every occasion (photo op!). So when we go apple picking, you better believe they’re wearing something shiny and red. This peplum sweater and tights set is as fresh and sweet as a Honeycrisp straight off the vine.
If my kiddos wear apples while apple picking, they naturally rock pumpkin patterns at the patch. It can get a little chilly on the farm, so it’s important to protect your little pumpkin’s noggin with a cozy knit cap. This one is a must for your fall baby’s official photo shoot. (October birth announcement, anyone?)
Fall and back-to-school kids’ clothing go together like peanut butter and jelly — in a retro lunchbox, of course. I’m crushing hard on this dreamy miniaturized varsity jacket — so adorable for future homecoming kings.
Every rising scholar needs an academic-inspired ensemble — even if he’s nowhere near ready for his first day of kindergarten. This very collegiate toggle cardigan — complete with elbow patches — pretty much screams, “Read to me!”
Pumpkins are the ultimate symbol of fall, because they last you through Thanksgiving. Your tulle-loving toddler can rock this harvest-inspired dress with a cardigan well into November. Children’s clothes girls will love and wear repeatedly all season long? Now that’s something to be grateful for.
