If you have little children, particularly ones that just went back to school, pre-k or daycare, you’ve probably found that your fall fashion budget is destined for smaller people. Here’s my toddler fashion round-up and a glossary to online children stores for when you splurge beyond Carters and Target, but want something different than Janie and Jack.

Zara Kids- Ahhh, I’m so excited my kids fit into this now. I feel a little sick at how cheap some of it is though. I mean, you can buy a top with pin tucking, embellishments and hidden buttons for $7.90. That might be too cheap for my conscience. Most of the really cute stuff, though, is about $25-$38.
Sweet William Ltd- This store carries a lot of great (and pricey brands). When you want to splurge, it’s a great site to wander.
Kickee Pants- This brand is great for newborns. The fabric is crazy soft and it stretches as your baby grows. It’s like buying the same piece for 3 sizes.
Baby Gap- My top pick for boy clothes. I’m not into clothes with sayings like “Cool Dude” and “Totally Adorable” (you can tell that by looking at my kids!), and I’m not one to offer my children as walking billboards for cartoons they’ve never seen. I like how BabyGap keeps it classic kid with good design.
Tea Collection- My sister would be disappointed if I didn’t include this shop. Great for comfy bohemian play dresses.
H&M Kids- I love their boys clothes, especially their sweaters and henleys.
Ralph Lauren Baby- Another good one for infants. Obviously pricey, but great from some special pieces.
What else am I forgetting??? Please comment if you have any other favorites..
