Now that it's finally spring here in Ohio, I have been making it a point to put away all the kids' winter clothing to make room for their new spring and summer wardrobes. (This is a HUGE task by the way...I swear my little ones have more clothes than I do! That's saying a lot, too!)
Like many moms of little girls, I am always on the lookout for clothing that's not only adorable, but designed to withstand the use (and often abuse) of active children like my Sophie. Sure, there are plenty of cute clothes at big box retailers, but do they really hold up? It's been my own experience that if I buy a cute dress for $10 at Walmart, it either tears quickly or starts to show extreme wear after just a few washes. Not such a bargain anymore, is it? Sometimes you truly DO get what you pay for!
Thankfully, I know a lot of great places to get kids' clothing that is stylish and well-made. One of my absolute favorite brands for spring is Biscotti and Kate Mack. They offer a wide range of beautifully made girls' clothing that is both classic and modern in design. From soft pastels like in the dress below to fun brights to nautical stripes, you're bound to find something you absolutely love from Biscotti and Kate Mack.

My Top Biscotti and Kate Mack Picks :
Here are just a few of my top picks for spring. It was so hard to choose only a few since I literally drool over almost everything Biscotti and Kate Mack carries. I enlisted my 4 year old, Sophie, to help by allowing her to pick items she would love to wear herself! I have quite the little fashionista on my hands!
Our Review of the She's Got Stripes Line :
The awesome folks at Biscotti and Kate Mack sent us this adorable She's Got Stripes Skirted Legging and Top set to check out for ourselves. It arrived quickly, and was very well-packaged.
The first thing I noticed about this outfit other than the whimsical, almost nautical feel to it, was the fabric itself. This is made from a cotton and spandex blend, and is super soft against the skin. I love the fact that it has a bit of stretch to it. This comes in very handy when my girly girl plays with the rough and tumble boys on the playground. She can climb, run, jump and roll around as much as she likes and her clothing doesn't tear easily.
This outfit also features some feminine details that I absolutely adore. The cap sleeves, ruffled skirt and contrasting bows make any little girl feel like a princess.
Sophie absolutely loves wearing this outfit, and no matter where we go, I get compliments on how classic and cute it is. Just yesterday, we stopped at a local sub shop called Mr. Hero to grab some lunch. The counter people and customers alike all commented on just how pretty my Sophie looks in her spring outfit from Biscotti and Kate Mack.
But the problem with being a pretty, well-dressed little girl is that little boys do seem to pay attention...Even if it is just a pesky little brother trying to photo-bomb her.
Overall, I am basically in love with Biscotti and Kate Mack. They offer so many stunning outfits for girls, and their quality is excellent. I love having so much to choose from for any occasion from formal events to swimming to playtime, too. I have a wish-list a mile long, to be completely honest. If you're looking for stylish, classic designs with a touch of modern flair, you're definitely going to want to check out Biscotti and Kate Mack.
