Before heading out on vacation, one must answer the all-important question - “What to pack!?” Luckily for us in North Texas, we have the best shopping center in the country with NorthPark Center, including the ultimate in children’s apparel. For our family trip to the Four Seasons Punta Mita in Mexico, I wanted the boys to be comfy and chic in this five star tropical paradise. On our shopping list included swim suits, resortwear, and casual beachware from Nordstrom, CH Carolina Herrera, hanna Andersson, and Splendid at NorthPark Center. Here is a look at our fabulous week in fashions!
No beach vacation is complete without a great swimsuit! These water-logged boys could be found sporting their swim-ready board shorts at the lazy river, Infiniti pool and sandy beach overlooking the Pacific. With bold, colorful designs, these suits fit nice and snug with drawstring ties at the waist, and are available for $38 at hanna Andersson at NorthPark Center.
When my Kindergartener wasn’t frolicking in the water, he could be found at the Kids For All Seasons Club, playing tennis, golf, or making a variety of Mexican art projects. While on the go, he was cool and comfy in this Caden Stripe Pocket Tee from Nordstrom NorthPark Center by Tucker + Tate with its uber-soft cotton and unique color combinations. Retails for $20 and is also available in acqua stripe.
Once a week, the resort hosts a pinata party on the beach where the kids line up to vie for candy. My little 3 year old didn’t hold back on his attempt, and looked too-cute-to-boot in this light blue, navy and white striped ensemble from Splendid, which retails for $40 for the top and $36 for the shorts. I love the fact that you can mix and match the various seperates!
The newly redesigned and relocated CH Carolina Herrera at NorthPark Center has an expanded selection of ready-to-wear fashions, including great fashions for children. As the sun set over the ocean, my boys sported these chic nautical styles in red, white, and blue. The jacket retails for $135, sweater for $120 and shorts for $115. An added bonus is the adorable striped belt that comes with the shorts.
All that fun in the sun makes for some very tired boys. A good night’s sleep and some tasty refreshments of hotcakes and cupcakes ordered to the room ensures they have enough energy for the day ahead. For pajama styles, it doesn’t get much cuter than these coordinated and colorful boat ensembles in vibrant blues, yellows, and reds. These PJs are simply the best quality on the market. Retails for $36.
