Happy May! Today, I saw that our town already posted signs announcing its annual Memorial Day parade festivities. That can only mean that the unofficial start to summer is not far off. To get our readers into the spirit, we’re paying tribute to the grand ol’ US of A with a few fashion finds that will help update your kids’ wardrobe sensibly and patriotically. Little girls can put their best feet forward with Venettini’s Savor shoe. These buttery-soft blue patent leather loafers give a kick to any everyday ensemble, even if it’s not a holiday. They may not be made of suede, but we think even Elvis would have approved of this fetching pair. And no patriotic celebration would be complete without a tee that proudly proclaims “I Heart the USA.” RUUM American Kid’s Wear, a new line for babies through age 14, is tailor-made for the casual kid who loves to flaunt his or her stylish side. We’re partial to this flag graphic tee, which borders on preppy with a fitted, polished look. Add shorts and sunglasses, and your kid will be set for any summer BBQ or holiday celebration–including parades.
In a Nutshell: Cute and casual is the order of the day, whether it’s Memorial Day, Independence Day or any day.
