my favorite places to shop for kids clothes

Hi friends! I’ve been meaning to share this post for literally a year and finally made it happen. I’m often asked where I shop for the girls clothes, so excited to finally have something compiled in one place here on my blog. Plus, it allowed me to take a little stroll down memory lane and look at cute old photos of the girls!


For babies, I love the L’oved Baby pjs, zip-up Kickee pants footie pajamas and the two piece Solly sets! For toddlers, I love the two piece Gap PJ sets (bonus – they come in Disney character patterns that kids love!), as well as this two piece set from Amazon and anything from Hanna Andersson. In the winter, I also love the classic Carter’s fleece zip-up pajamas. They are inexpensive, COZY and really cute.


Most of the clothes I have for the girls currently are from Zara, followed by H&M, Hanna Andersson, Tea Collection, Maisonette, and Gap. I do sometimes shop at Target (the Q by Quincy Mae stuff is SO cute and a great price and we have some gems from the Cat and Jack line too!) and Old Navy, but the quality (in my experience) doesn’t hold up as well in the wash and between multiple kids. Zara is just my favorite because it’s super cute and trendy and LASTS. Almost everything I’ve bought from Zara for Lucy has been worn by Winnie and is in good enough condition to save for another kid.
SIZING: Sizing wise, for us, Zara runs big for sweaters/tops. Winnie (currently 20 months) still fits in some 9-12 and many 12-18M tops. Lucy (3.5) still fits in some 12-18M cardigans! For pants, they both are mostly true to size at Zara. H&M also runs big for our girls. Gap, Maisonette, and Hanna Andersson fit more true to size, and Tea Collection sizes fit slightly small (tight) on Lucy and Winnie.


DISNEY/CHARACTER CLOTHES: For Disney clothes, I like Zara and Gap best! Lucy loves wearing Mickey/Minnie things, but I find that Zara and Gap clothes have a little bit more of a vintage vibe and are super cute!

SHOP HANNA ANDERSSON: We have several items from Hanna Andersson (they had a sale a few months ago I majorly stocked up on!). Here’s a few other cute items!

SHOP H&M: I have several of these two pack long sleeve tops – they came in a bunch of muted colors and the quality is great. I also have bought these sweatsuit sets for the girls many times over the last year and a half. I have one of these ribbed sets for each of the girls as well as this set of minimal onesies for Winnie that are great in the summer or under sweaters/jackets in the fall. We also have a set similar these ruffled shirts that Lucy wears (the bunny one is her favorite!). Here’s a few other cute things from H&M!

SHOP AMAZON: It’s hard to deny that Amazon has some cute kids clothes! I shared this blog post a couple months ago about kids clothing and accessories we’ve ordered from Amazon. I  just ordered this pom pom sweater and it’s ADORABLE! We’ve gotten lots of random outfits from Amazon, and also lots of accessories like shoes, socks, and tights. Here’s my Amazon list of kids clothes and accessories, plus more kids clothes to shop below.


Les Gamins has super cute, minimal and cozy kids clothes.

My Wild Oak makes really cute bodysuits and tshirts.

We love Alice and Ames dresses — they are SO cute, Lucy loves to twirl in them, and they have held up really well. We now have 5 I think!

I also love Quincy Mae; it’s slightly more affordable than its sister brand Rylee + Cru.

Scout Baby is a local Nashville shop that thoughtfully curates a ton of cute kids clothes and accessories

Cub Shrub is my go-to for small shop brands in Columbus, Ohio.

Here’s a list of 100+ Black-owned kids shops, including a lot of kids clothing and accessories.


I  love a good deal – and have found soooo many good kids clothes at secondhand shops! I’ve found tons of adorable name-brand items at a very affordable price. Most recently I found some Native shoes at Goodwill for $3, but I think my favorite kids thrift find is these dark green cowgirl boots pictured below. I mostly shop in-person at Once Upon A Child, Goodwill, or other shops, but I’ve had friends find great kids stuff on Poshmark too. By the way, I sell Lucy and Winnie’s gently used kids clothes on my @luckyandicloset account (and 100% of the $$ is donated to Homeland Heart).


TIGHTS: most of our tights are from Zara, H&M and Amazon.
TURBANS: Lucy was the queen of turbans! She had no hair for the longest time and they looked so cute on her! Most of ours were from Knot Baby, New Girl Knots, Poppy Knots, Turbans for Tots
BONNETS: Briar Baby, Quincy Mae (I prefer Quincy Mae because it’s a lot more affordable!)
HEADBANDS AND BOWS: Minimade, Noell Jane, Baby Bling

SHOES: Surprise surprise – a lot of the girls’ shoes are from Zara. I also love baby Converse, Vans, and Natives! We have baby moccs from Freshly Picked and Sweet n Swag (much more affordable than FP!).
