Whether it be for family pictures this fall; or, for the many family gatherings over the busy holiday months to come – if you’re like me – you want your children’s outfits to be classic, comfortable, special AND still – affordable. I came across Hope and Henry on Amazon last summer when I was looking for bathing suits for the girls for our annual family vacation to Lake Tahoe. I was only looking for one – and, fast forward to three suits and several sun dresses later – Hope & Henry’s designer look and feel, at comparable prices to some of our everyday favorite brands has made it a fast and lasting favorite of mine for the girls.
Don’t get me wrong, these pieces are certainly not inexpensive – but, they are priced appropriately for the quality; and, make the perfect hand-me-down or re-sale item when properly cared for. The only complaint I have read as I have carefully curated items for my family and yours is some of the items (specifically swim suits) can (and do) run small. So – read the reviews and sizing info before clicking purchase; and, be mindful that Addie is a size 5-6 and Parker is a size 4! Happy shopping and let the holiday season begin, y’all!

Make it a Mommy and Me Look
Ponte Dress with Pop of Faux Fur
I love this dress SO much. Made from an Organic Cotton, Poly and Spandex blend – this beautiful and plush ponte fabric in a classic skater silhouette has the perfect classic line and includes a pop of faux fur around the collar (not removable). The pockets are also faux, with gold button details. Another bonus? Its Machine Washable!
Pontes Quilted Riding Dress
I love this dress for thanksgiving and for family pictures. Its also an all-around solid dress for the season. The thick knit fabric (64% Organic Cotton, 32% Poly, 4% Spandex, exclusive of trims) has plenty of stretch for comfort and the suede details at the elbows and pockets add an equestrian touch. Gold buttons at the front add just the right amount of sparkle.
- Faux suede elbow patches and trim at pockets
- Bow detail at neckline functional front pockets with gold button detail
- Machine Washable
- $25.95 (Amazon Prime)
