Kid-Style: Fun Prints and Bright Colors for Summer

Shopping for girls is a hundred times more fun than shopping for boys, with a wider choice of clothes and styles to choose from. I feel lucky that I have a girl who also appreciates fashion, from clothes, to footwear, to accessories.

Since the girl turned three, I've been having a hard time buying clothes and shoes for her since she already has a mind of her own when it comes to dressing.  It was so easy to buy on impulse especially with the vast selection available in the market today but I need to control myself.  Lots of hits and misses (and waste of money) along the way.  She's 6 now and I think I know her taste already. So far, she's been liking, and wearing, what I buy for her.  Among our usual shopping destinations is SM.  Affordable fashion at it's best.  They really have it all! Everything we need from head to toe.

We missed the SM Kids' Fashion Summer Pool Party a few weeks ago.  We were supposed to shop from their summer collection and wear it at the event.  It was only last weekend that I was able to check out their newest line in SM Megamall.  Thanks to SM, I was able to buy a whole new wardrobe for the girl!

Summer style has always been one of the most vibrant looks in every kid’s wardrobe. With the Summer 2013 Collection, SM Kids’ Fashion lets boys and girls shine as bright as the sun.
Between lemon yellow tones and breezy floral dresses, each piece in the collection is a striking burst of style and color.
The collection features five of the top summer trends for 2013:
~ vivid neons
~ colorful leggings
~ playful swimwear
~ statement tees
~ lively new patterns

The sales attendants were all nice and allowed me to take photos of the merchandise that caught my eye.
The first dress I spotted was this multi-colored cotton scarf dress

Cool statement tees and animal-print tank tops at fantastic deals!

Smart casual - more colors in prints and solids for boys and tweens

Pretty fancy dresses for your little princesses

Art on fashion - chic printed satin dresses with necklines adorned in beads, pearls, and rosettes

Add sparkle and glam up the look with a sequined top and dress

And here are the items I picked out for my little lady:

Her favorite is this scarf dress (2nd from the top)... sorry, she refused to be photographed so I had to steal some shots while at the mall ealier. =)

100 peso tank tops! Perfect fit... she loves animal prints too so she gave me a thumbs up for these.

Basic tees on sale - 2 for P250!

We can't get enough of legging, and luckily, I found these in her fave bright colors.

My personal favorite is this tiered tent blouse - layers of creamy tulle and crocheted fabric with deep blue Peter Pan collar, and brooch.  Perfect for a summer party!

Of course, this summer will not be complete with swim wear.  After the Holy Week, I bought my kids new sets to replace the old ones they've been using the past 2 to 3 years.  It's about time they get new ones.  The girl chose her own rash guard set, and I got her this lycra and mesh racerback swimsuit.

The boy took swimming classes so we bought two sets for him in classic styles and colors.

Do you like any of my shopping finds? =)
There's still so much more I wanted to buy for them but these are enough for now.  Head over to SM and shop 'til you drop with all these summer-ific fashion finds!
