 Now, I realize swimsuit season is often met with dread, but I think it’s time we all get past that.  First of all, because there are such things as swimsuit cover ups, and they’re trendy and chic now.  Second of all, because of the fact that getting a tan is sooo over, you don’t ever have to take the cover up off.  It’s not so much swimsuit season anymore as it is an opportunity to buy that loose, flowy, totally flattering and fun beach dress you’ve always wanted, and wear it as long as you please.  Here’s a photo of my favorite cover up from Shopbop- not nearly as scary as a bikini, right? 

Regardless of whether or not you have any interest in leaving your deck chair and discarding your gorge cover up to take a swim, the kids are sure to want to splash around in the water and build sandcastles.  So, after you’re done splurging on that fab Furstenberg, you simply must stop by Sophias Style and shop little girl swimwear for her.  The good news is, our baby girl’s swimsuits are all priced reasonably, so you won’t be suffering any buyer’s remorse over your new silk-chiffon beach dream-dress, and you’ll still feel like a good mommy for finding something adorable and well made for your mini-fashionista. 

Enjoy spring ladies, and get ready to have a blast at the beach with your families!

 This might seem weird, but I would totally wear that jumper by Greggy Girl that’s pictured to the left.  It doesn’t come in my size, but if it did…  I’m really into the bows and the polka dots, it’s retro and classy and girly, and the halter neckline is too pretty.  Wouldn’t it be cute with some little two-toned kitten-heel oxfords, and a very ladylike handbag?  Something like this gorgeous little Rebecca Minkoff number.  Alas, we only carry girls clothing, not women’s (yet, but we could someday!). 

Speaking of girl’s clothes, I just saw some incredibly cute Rare Editions outfits that you should definitely check out- they’re very bright and spring-y! 
Enjoy your Monday, and happy shopping!

Once again, it is an incredibly beautiful day in Omaha.  We have three enormous windows in the office I share with our programmer, but for some reason they don’t open.  Who makes windows that don’t  open?  Zookeepers?  Oh well, so long as the sunshine can get in- and there is a sun to shine- I can hardly complain. 

Also, see the adorable baby girl dress to the left?  I bought that dress!  Not for me, it’s for a friend who is due to have a little girl in two and a half weeks.  She is planning to name her Madeleine, isn’t that a beautiful name!*  It’s such a great dress, obviously well made, and isn’t a sailor dress something every little girl should have?  I think so.  

We have lots and lots of cute dresses for girls arriving at Sophias, and summer is quite clearly on it’s way.  So, if you’re in the market for girls dresses (and if you have a daughter, you must be) click the magic blue words and you’ll be transported to a whole world of dresses your little girl will love.

Easter Dresses for Baby Girls

This week the weather has been so incredibly beautiful, I have the worst case of spring fever.  All I want to do is run around in shorts, light sweaters, flowy skirts, and day heels.  Temperatures have been in the 50′s for days now, and I cannot express in words the difference it has made in my mood and the moods of everyone around me. 

Anyone who lives in the midwest can tell you, you don’t truly appreciate warm weather until you’ve dealt with our winters.  Midwesters know how to treasure a nice day.  On Sunday, my boyfriend and I went to get brunch at a cafe that is normally pretty slow, and it was completely packed with the happiest crowd I’ve seen in months. 

Aside from gorgeous weather and an altogether happier population, spring brings one of the most cheerful holidays: Easter!  We’ve been getting new girls Easter dresses in daily, so many that we can hardly keep up, which is why I seriously recommend checking them out.  I especially love our Easter dresses for baby girls, they’re so precious and tiny!  I can’t wait for my brother and his fiancee to have a little girl, then I’ll get to pick out the perfect toddler Easter dress in a few years!

What does your family do to celebrate Easter?  Mine always went to church and then to an Easter egg hunt.  Do you hide eggs for your kids at home, or do they go to a big hunt with lots of other kids?

Swimwear Season: Yes, Please

It is -9 degrees outside in Omaha today, and needless to say I am less than thrilled.  I realize it’s only February, and I realize that the ozone has more holes in it these days than jeans did in the 90′s, but I don’t care, I want a stable climate and I want it remain stable above zero, is that really so much to ask? 

What I really want is a beach where I can sit under an umbrella, slathered in sunblock (my ancestors lived in Denmark and we don’t do tan), and spend the whole day reading a mix of snobby literature and French Vogue from behind an oversized pair of cat-eye sunnies. 

What’s not helping me push this daydream aside and get back to work is the fact that my work involves seeing all the incredibly cute baby girl swimwear we’ve been getting at Sophias!  If your family is lucky enough to be taking a vacation to somewhere tropical, you’ve simply got to browse through our girls swimsuits and help your little girl pick one (or two, or three) out, there are so many cute styles.  She’d look darling in an animal print bikini with a skirted bottom and pink, ruffled trim.  Or, for the sportier girls out there, we’ve got the coolest surf swim suits!

Even if you’re not headed anywhere that involves sand and palm trees anytime soon, you can pass at least a few frigid February minutes shopping our girls swimwear- that way you’ll be all set for when the weather finally does warm up!

We are in the midst of a snowstorm here in Omaha, Nebraska, and that still isn’t stopping me from daydreaming about spring fashion.   Have you seen the women’s spring 2011 rtw?  It is, without a doubt, the most exciting turn fashion has taken in 5 years.  I adore leggings, skinny jeans, tunics, and sky-high heeled booties- and I’m positive these staples will still be considered classy, stylish, and on-trend in a safe and sophisticated way for years to come, but I am so ready for something new!  In fashion “something new” invariably means “something old that’s been reworked, restyled, and updated.”  This spring, we’re heading back to the 60′s and 70′s, in a clean and ladylike-but-bold manner through highwaisted trousers with billowingly wide-leg sillhouettes, patterned blouses, rich colors, a mixture of structured and flowy dresses and skirts, and any variety of shoe you like. 

Well, children’s fashion isn’t quite as fast and furious an industry as women’s fashion is, but girls clothing trends do imitate womens, and all these fun colors and crazy patterns are going to be working their way into your little girl’s wardrobe!  Lucky kids these days, when I was little, it was all late eighties neons and ninties grunge, yuck.

The other upside to being a child of the 201-’s?  Hair, makeup, and figures.  I don’t know if you’ve been paying attention or not, but fashion’s obsession with svelte is wanning, and the runways this year were positively packed with models of all shapes and sizes!  And their faces?  Clean, and healthy.  Hair?  All natural, all wash-and-wear.  Bye bye chemicals, hello simplicity!

Girls clothing at Sophias Style is all about finding the latest trends in womens fashion and applying them to girls clothes in a fun and age-appropriate manner.  These days, the designers are making our jobs easy by bringing back a style that salutes the natural beauty of women and displaying that fashion isn’t about trying to be pretty, it’s about having fun!  Wear those berry-toned satin Marc Jacobs pants because it’s fun, buy that tie-dye Emilio Pucci blouse because it looks like a sunrise in the desert, sport that Alice + Olivia dress because it’s breezy and exotic and looks like a vacation feels.  Teach your little girl that she’s already pretty, fashion is about having fun.
