Keeping Things Sweet & Simple

February 18, 2010

tunicI had the privilege of sleeping late the other morning. I know. You hate me, don’t you? Well, don’t just yet. I paid for it. I was awakened by the sound of my daughter and husband arguing over clothes.

She didn’t want to wear the flowered shirt with the flowered pants and the flowered socks. Too many flowers, she screamed. But that’s all we have, my husband retorted smartly.

I came out of the bedroom and immediately saw the problem. The child looked like a garden. I mean, there were flowers on every stitch of clothing on the poor child. What she needed was at least one solid piece in her outfit to stop the patterned madness.  What she needed was a simple white shirt.

As any parent knows, with either girls or boys, things are never simple with kids. For some reason this translates to clothing choices. It’s amazing how hard it is to find a simple white shirt for kids. Everything has a giraffe on it or hearts or some crazy pattern (flowers for girls, camouflage for boys).

That’s why I was so happy to discover this cotton baby tunic top from French children’s clothing designer Bon Bon. Crisp and clean from the Spring 2010 collection, it’s simply white. Perfect to tone things down a bit.  Kids are loud enough. Why do their clothes always have to be?

Long-sleeve for chilly little arms and 100% soft cotton, this gem understands that sometimes you need to keep things simple. Great alone or under a sweater for light layering. And given the bon bon name, you might say it’s a sweet find.
