Jill ♥s Zara Kids

Zara, the beloved Spanish retail chain, best known for their reasonably priced fashion forward designs in women and menswear also carries a children’s collection in a select few of their retail stores. If you haven’t had the privilege of shopping for your little one at Zara, you’re missing out. It’s that good! The brand’s mini fashions are spot on with the latest trends, but still manage to maintain a touch of cuteness. Cause let’s face it; kids should be cute and not little adults. They have the whole rest of their lives ahead of them to be bitter and old.

If you don’t have a Zara with a kids department near you, don’t fret. A majority of the collection is available online. Sizes run from 3 months -14 years old. Styles tend to sell out quick, so if you like something, act fast. You won’t be disappointed.

Here’s just a sneak peak at some of my favorite pieces from the kids collection for Spring. I wish they made some of these styles in adult sizes (or was able to squeeze myself into a kids size 14). I’m in love.

Jill ♥s Harajuku Mini

If you’re looking for ultra hip clothes for your kids and don’t want to spend a ton, look no further. Target’s Harajuku Mini by Gwen Stefani is your answer. The Japanese streetwear inspired collection is everything you’d expect from designer and fashion trendsetter Stefani plus a whole lot more. Its whimsical characters and silhouettes are spectacular. Each piece is unique down to the smallest detail. Stefani’s inspiration for her children’s line comes straight from the Harajuku fashion scene (hence the name Harajuku Mini) in Japan which is known for its over the top fashion styles of mismatched patterns, bright colors, ruffled skirts and extensive layering. The style is very reminiscent to Japanese anime characters. Now in her second season with Target, Stefani’s latest collection consists of funky nauticals, mismatched pattered skirts & dresses and hamburgers. Yes, I said hamburgers. Need I say more.
