I feel like the Tea Collection is most well known for their beautiful and distinctive dresses - they are gorgeous and I've had many clients dress their daughters in them for photo sessions.
However, they also have some great boys clothing. Liam wore quite a few of their graphic tees this summer, and I recently placed an order with them for some fall/winter photo friendly outfits. The order was delivered last week and I have to say... I'm in love!
The colors, quality and fit are gorgeous, and even though I'm all for having Liam photographed in the graphic tops he usually wears, how nice to have some non-graphic options that don't just look like they're so plain they're missing something (which I've found tends to happen with cheaper options).
Seriously, these pieces are gorgeous.
I have to say, I never thought I would have so much fun dressing a boy - I've been pleasantly surprised at how much great stuff there is out there. Of course, I don't know how long I have before he starts to have an opinion. Even the other morning, I casually mentioned that it was a little chilly so we would be dressing in layers and his response was "NO LAYERS!!! NO LAYERS!!!... what are layers?"
I guess I'll enjoy it while I can, and for now, I'm thrilled with my latest purchases. One thing I love about the pants - they have an adjustable waistband on sizes 2-12 years which is pretty common, but unlike most brands, they sew in the ends so they're not constantly flying loose and needing to be tucked in. It's a great detail I really appreciate!
I love you Tea Collection!
