London-based Rachel Riley has always been a favorite childrenswear brand for my kids. Although my own fashion sense tends to run the gamit between traditional and edgy, I tend to lean traditional with my babies. Rachel Riley’s design philosophy is just that, as she draws inspiration from the forties, fifties and sixties with fine tailoring, beautiful hand smocking, hand embroidery and vintage-inspired prints.
Rachel Riley pieces tend to be the outfits and dresses that my girls want to wear every.single.day. Great taste, these girls have! Each Rachel Riley piece is also so special to me because they evoke such fond memories from milestones and special occasions in my childrens’ lives. Since baby Jack came into the picture, it’s been hard to find a clothing line where I like both the boys and girls clothing options, so Rachel Riley is a go-to when I want to coordinate outfits for the kids!
