The Perfect Afternoon Tea Party Play Date

If you have little girls, you likely know all about tea parties, twirly dresses, and living room fashion shows. Matilda Jane Clothing makes lots of darling outfits for little girls that mix and match, and many styles grow with your child such as dresses that can also be worn as tops as a little girl gets older. I have two girls who can already trade clothes even though they are 2 and 4 years old. Matilda Jane Clothing makes their clothes swapping even easier!

Whimsical Clothing for Little Girls

My favorite thing about Matilda Jane Clothing are the darling patterns. Someone in the designing department must be having a ton of fun! Matilda Jane dresses are known for their coordinating yet contrasting prints; one dress will often feature 6-8 patterns within the same design, but somehow they always come together in a darling style. Many of the dresses have straps that loop through button holes and tie in the front, allowing them to be adjusted. Many of the dresses can be transformed into tops when a little girl grows and worn with leggings. My girls were so excited to dress up in Matilda Jane outfits and enjoy a darling tea party with their WellieWisher American Girl dolls! Tiny cakes to share with their adorable dolls is a little girl’s afternoon dream come true!

Matilda Jane also offers solid dresses that are adorably detailed with ruffles, ties, and tiered layers. Everything coordinates with matching Matilda Jane hair accessories and leggings separates.

Every little girl needs a WellieWishers Doll from American Girl, a fuzzy kitten, and a Matilda Jane dress! The WellieWishers Doll Collection features 5 friends including Ashlyn, Camille, and Willa, each with their own beautifully unique outfits and coordinating Wellie boots. These darling WellieWishers dolls are the perfect guests to invite to afternoon tea.

Timeless Clothing Styles

Matilda Jane Clothing offers timeless styles and high quality designs. I love the whimsical ruffles, pockets, buttons, and bows that empower little girls to be girly as they twirl and go on adventures. I can’t wait to see what the 2016 Matilda Jane Fall Collection has in store for back to school and fall fashion! Some of my favorite new releases include this darling “Oh Dear” tunic with lavender, aqua and printed ruffles and a gorgeous purple striped bodice. This Happily Ever After Skirt features multicolored tulle layers and a fun dose of charm, accented by mauve pinstripes.

I had a chance to wear one of my favorite Matilda Jane dresses today, after a nursing sabbatical. Its high neckline doesn’t make it very accessible nursing wear, but it’s a classic style for the rest of the time! Now that my little guy is starting solids and nursing less frequently, I’m happy to be able to once again enjoy Matilda Jane fashion! Matilda Jane’s Splended Dress is part of the new Once Upon a Time collection and it’s easy to see why it’s truly splendid! The bright blue hues contrasting with several shades of pinks and fuchsias in a darling floral pattern make this Matilda Jane dress a fashion statement that’s hard to miss! I love that Matilda Jane offers beautiful fashions for moms and women as well as little girls, and many of them coordinate!

Back to School Fashion

Your little girl can go to school with their own Matilda Jane backpack, water bottle, sandwich box, or lunchbox! These back to school lunch items are decorated with the same styles found on Matilda Jane clothing. It’s so refreshing to find back to school gear that encourages little girls to be just that; darling little girls. Matilda Jane lunch gear is decorated with whimsical flowers, dots, and muted patterns in hues of green, pink, aqua, and yellow. Coordinating backpacks and pencil cases are made from quilted fabrics in the same adorable Matilda Jane patterns. Now your little girl can wear and take Matilda Jane to lunch time!
