I can’t get enough of that denim jacket pair with matching jeans and a crisp white tee. (I wouldn’t mind one in mama’s size please.)

Next, something a little more retro…

A perfect combination of “vintage cool”… This logo bodysuit is perfect for older girls with Eliana (age 9) giving it the thumbs up.

* This design is available in sizes 7years old all the way up to 15years old.

And lastly, Ava’s picks…

The paper bag shorts are so versatile and go up to age 10! It’s a summer must-have! Paired with either a tee or Ava’s choice – a bodysuit.

Ava’s go-to, everyday school outfits are tee and legging sets. Best for play!

I love the addition of this season’s neutral colour palette. Different items, from different sets, can easily be mixed and matched and also worn with clothes already in Ava’s closet. With on-trend designs that are still age-appropriate and comfortable, our littlest lady feels fun, fabulous and oooh so happy in Barbie!
