Summer Dresses That Tick All The Boxes - Oobi Mum Blogger - The Happiness Blog | Oobi Girls Kid Fashion

One of our beautiful Oobi mums wrote an amazing Blog and we loved it so much we wanted to share. As it is heating up out there I think this is the perfect way to say Hello to Summer.

I’ve always been a lover of fashion. I love a good trend as much as a well-loved classic and if the budget allowed, would have plenty of both.

So when I had my two boys within 18 months of each other, I was determined to have them looking funky and cute in equal measure, without compromising on comfort (I never could get used to seeing newborns in button up jeans!).

And while there were a few snazzy rompers and trendy slacks on the market, there’s only so many options when it comes to boys’ clothes.

Fast forward a couple more years, and my daughter Lee was born – cue the rubbing of hands and bee-line to the computer to Google ‘baby girls fashion’.

When it comes to bubs, I’m a lover of the classics – pretty dresses and onesies, little shorties and cute cardigans.

Now that Lee is a toddler, it’s a fashion frenzy, with an array of gorgeous girls’ clothes on offer.

Trouble is though, style often compromises comfort, and while as an adult I’m well and truly ready to make the sacrifice if I’m heading to a party, I’m not prepared to have my baby girl in discomfort for the sake of fashion.

At this time of the year, the dilemma extends to heat, with Australia’s silly season as hot as they come.

While there are occasions aplenty that warrant the donning of your Sunday Best, so many toddler outfits are simply too hot, and too uncomfortable.

Enter Oobi, an utterly unique girls’ clothing boutique offering an enormous range of hand-printed designer garments for newborns right through to 12-year-olds.

The thing I love the most about Oobi dresses is the light-weight cotton fabrics. Cool in the summer heat and comfortable enough to wear all day. No quick changes after the grand entrance required!

Best of all, they are gorgeous. A beautiful mix of classic, retro and funky styles, in a stunning colour palette of reds, blues, pinks, greens and yellows.

There’s also a range of shortie/singlet combos that are perfectly suitable for special occasions due to the pretty detailing and beautiful prints.

In Australia, most summer soirees are outdoors, so every little girl needs a gorgeous hat.

All of Lee’s new dresses and outfits come with the matching sun hat, so UV protection need not spoil the outfit!

Lee’s summer wardrobe is complete – she certainly won’t be blending into the background!

She’ll be stylish, comfortable and cool, like every little girl should be.
