If you haven’t noticed by now, I LOVE dressing my kiddos. It’s so much fun to pick out pieces of clothing that I know they will love and love to wear, but also sticking within a budget, of course. I get asked all the time where we shop and I can honestly say that time after time, year after year, we turn to Carters (ahem: rewards!) for great quality clothes where we can always get a lot of bang for our buck. I love working with them to share their holiday shop with you all, but I thought this year I would actually share my tips for choosing the perfect holiday dress for you little girl.

Last year, we chose something gold and sparkly for her first Christmas and this year we went the classic route with this charming Plaid Dress Set.  (And this year we’re also introducing pig tails so it’s extra cute!) I swear that if it’s possible, their holiday shop  makes me more excited every single year and I always make sure to snag matching jimmies for Blake and Branden from their epic PJ Shop!

Before sharing my tips, I want to make sure you’re all aware of all the great things Carter’s has happening this holiday season. First, if you’re searching for a store near you, check out their store locator here.   Year after year, Carter’s offers a PJ Program (check it out here), that helps donate jammies to kids in need. There are millions of children who don’t have a bed to call their own, so having a clean pair of PJs to wear at night makes a huge difference. There are donation bins in store, or you can make a small monetary donation during checkout. It’s a really easy way to give back during this special time of year.

How to choose the perfect holiday dress for your little one:

This is the process I go through!

Focus on comfort

Comfort is always a priority when I’m choosing any type of clothing for my kids, but especially around the holidays because lot’s of dresses can overwhelm your little one with lace and tulle and other itchy fabrics. This is another reason I love Carter’s so much – I don’t have to worry about the fabrics being uncomfortable.

Be bold

This isn’t just any dress, it’s a special holiday dress. Be bold and choose something that might be different than her everyday wear. This makes things even more fun!

If she’s old enough – let her help!

I swear that even though Blake is only nearing 15-months that she gets excited about her clothes. This outfit was especially fun for her whenever I pulled out the sparkly silver Ballet Flats. Letting them help allows them to be even more excited about wearing their new dress.

Think about the memory.

You know how much I love a good picture! I always try to think in advance how the dress will look with what we’re all wearing and a suggest you do the same. Believe me – I’ve had moments where I look at family photos and go “oh my! Our color scheme really is all over the place!” It happens to the best of us, but I really try not to let it happen around the holidays when the memories are extra special.
