It’s Time for Holiday Dressing!

It’s Time for Holiday Dressing!

These last few years many of us curtailed our holiday travel and festivities due to Covid. In our family, we avoided large social gatherings and spent Christmas Day at home in PJs (albeit cute ones) rather than our traditional visits with extended family. But this year, we are ready to get back to it. What will you be doing this year that you may have missed out on the last few years?

For our family, we will once again venture in to New York City to see a matinee of the Nutcracker at the Met. Or catch it nearby with the Eastern CT Ballet at the Garde Arts Center in New London. Unfortunately, my kids have grown out of meeting Santa at the Ocean House, but I highly recommend one of their weekend brunches offered on weekends between Thanksgiving and Christmas. I’m guessing there will be plenty of holiday parties this year as well. We are feeling so lucky to have these events back in our lives, but our closets may be slightly lacking. Not to worry, we are here to help!

I think my favorite new arrivals for girls are from Ollie Jay. Their twirl style dresses have become a bestseller at the shop in a short time. And it’s easy to see why. They are made of a soft, thick jersey fabric, with pockets to hold treasures and a full skirt that twirls to perfection. For baby girls under 12 months there are matching rompers. Pair any style with tights and you’re ready to roll. There are several colors and prints available for the holidays (and already sold out at many other stores).

For the boys I’m really loving the Button Cardigan from Rylee and Cru. Back this season in a soft Marine color way, it looks great over the Long Sleeve Tee in Fox Forest and paired with the Ryder Pant in Putty.

For baby boy, I’m completely obsessed with the Retro Corduroy Romper from Angel Dear in Chive. Pair the Long Sleeve Bodysuit in the Tractors print underneath it for the sweetest combo in town.

Or perhaps you are in need of Christmas PJs for the ever popular Polar Express ride on the Essex Steam Train? Or you still plan to stay at home on Christmas Day (sounds good to me). If so, stop in to see our new holiday PJs that are arriving now.
