I think there’s this unwritten rule in the South that thou shalt dress thy children in all things smocked and monogrammed. And Lord knows, y’all.. I’ve always been a rule follower. 😉
Now, don’t get me wrong here. Not everyone loves smocked clothing, and that’s okay! (More for me! I kid) But it is definitely a trend that has stuck around since I don’t even know when. It’s simply timeless and so supremely Southern that I just can’t get enough of it. In fact, the first articles of clothing I bought when I found out I was having a little girl were 7 beautiful smocked dressed. I hung them so proudly in her little closet while I awaited her arrival. And true story – I cried the first time I saw her wear one. You may think I’m a little crazy, but at least I wear my crazy well. 🙂
Smocked clothing isn’t always the easiest to find, and it’s always on the pricey end. If you can find a store where you have a big selection of smocked and monogrammed clothing at decent prices, well darlin’ you’ve found a golden egg!
I recently stumbled across a great little online smock shop called This and That for Kids. It’s a great place to shop smocked!They have an awesome collection and the prices are pretty good, too! Right now, they’re having a fantastic sale on their Fall and Holiday apparel. Hello, Christmas shopping!!
My daughter is all ready for Thanksgiving! She’s proudly showing of her brand new hand smocked turkey bishop dress, which is currently on sale for just $39.00! Gobble gobble!
With shipping being a flat rate $3.00 and FREE on orders over $50, it’s hard not to add everything to my cart! When you sign up for their mailing list, they’ll also send you a 10% off coupon! *(insert happy dance here*)
Since Christmas is quickly approaching, I’ve got my eye on a few items from their Holiday collection. Here’s a few of my favorites:
