With the arrival of December, you may be thinking about what to wear to festive events or family gatherings over the holidays. I found the most adorable dresses for girls from the Tot by Benedita! Benedita is a luxury kids fashion line based in London that embraces a sustainable and ethical approach. They believe in quality over quantity which is a motto I live by. I prefer a curated closet over one jammed with pieces that only get worn a few times. The Tot is based on this curatorial concept as well which is why I love shopping from them so much. You can always trust that the lines that they carry are well sourced and of the highest quality!
These long sleeve velvet dresses are made from 100% cotton so they are as comfortable as they are cute. I have the hardest time getting London to wear anything that isn’t comfortable and she loved this buttery soft Duchess dress with an elegant lace collar. Marin looked too cute in her matching velvet romper that has easy snaps for diaper changing. I loved how these outfits photographed so much that I just put the girls in them again for our family holiday photos! Also, how cute are their Carlomagno knee high socks with the bows..
On mom: this Tibi pleated sculptured dress (really on a Tibi kick lately) is easy to wear, loose, but still really flattering. The fabric is soft and stretchy but with a thickness that feels very luxurious. I love a high neck and thought that this plisseé ruffle tied in well with the girls ruffled necklines. You can wear this dress with booties (I chose a neutral suede Aquazzura for a more casual look with kids) but it would look really elevated with a pump or strappy sandal for a cocktail party. I’m imagining a Monolo Blahnik bb pump in a deep red or something metallic like the Malone triple band sandal.
I also wanted to show another Tibi option that would go well with the girls dresses, which is this pink corset seam top. I paired it with a neutral vince pleated skirt that is actually supposed to be worn long in the front and high in the back, but I spun it around. I always like experimenting with clothes. Why not make it your own!
