Congrats to our winner Lily!
While I’d rather stick pins in my eyes than shop for clothing for myself- when it comes to my kids- I am a shopaholic. There is something so sweet and innocent about little kid’s clothing– and I get such joy rummaging through frilly pink skirts and white Mary Janes when it comes to choosing weekend, party or those special occasion frocks for my daughter, and those handsome little man button down shirts and matching chords for my son.
Need a little help navigating all the goodies at The Children’s Place – no problem! We’ve got Children’s Place lead designer, Michael Giannelli, sharing his favorite dressy trends from newborn to tween. Michael says:
“You’ll find bright colors throughout our new collections for boys and girls, from newborn to big kid.
Cascade Swing Dot Dress: $21.00; Metallic Ballet Flat: $17.00
“Our girl’s spring collection is indeed very girly. We’ve mixed it up with lots of soft and sweet pieces like our extra-soft fit and flare dresses and textured floral skirts.

Another must-have for girls is the ballet flatâ€”just slip them on and she’s ready to walk out the door. Our ballet flats come in sparkly sequins, pretty florals, and colorful gems so there’s a flat for every girl.
