So, I wore my fabulously dramatic (not-so-cheap) black and white striped cotton Zara jacket to my friend’s birthday dinner the other night. Her 3-year-old daughter sat across the table and persistently tried to get my attention by shouting, “Excuse me! Excuse me!” Finally, the entire table stopped talking and turned to her. “What is it sweetie?”, I asked. She looked at me urgently and yelled, “You look like a ZEBRA!!” As we all burst out laughing, I thought how silly it is for us to sometimes go out of our way to look “fashionable”, and in an instant, a child can bring us back to the innocence and beautiful simplicity in which life should be lived! Then again, some kids do wear tutus all year around – but those kids grow up to wear “zebra” jackets! 😉

If you have one of those kids, or are just a fan of stripes – don’t forget about our Anchors Aweigh baby dress and coverall in a lovely stripe, and the Butterfly Wishes, black and white stripe swimsuit and cover-up dress!

Desmond, the animal lover!

This is my nephew, Desmond. He LOVES animals! He goes crazzzzy every time he visits the zoo! So when I saw this little Z-Z-Zebra outfit from le•top, I thought “Zzzzweet!” because I knew it would be perfect for him.

There are so many things I like about this collection: First of all, the design is unique and original (as all le•top and rabbit moon clothing are). It’s not the traditional black & white zebra. It’s baby blue and olive (not the usual color palette you’d see in boy’s clothes), and it really works. I love it! Secondly, the fabric is velour, so it’s very soft and comfortable — feels like pajamas but they’re not. Who wouldn’t want to wear something so comfy? I wish I could walk around all day in something that felt like pajamas, but looks this fashionable. Thirdly, le•top’s sizing is spot on! My nephew is a big boy for someone who isn’t quite a one-year old yet, but this 12-month outfit fits him perfectly well! (I’ve also noticed that with my daughter’s clothes as well.)
