I may gravitate to the classic and the traditional, but I don’t dress my girls like we live on a little house on the prairie. Thoughts of calico dresses and frilly bonnets give me Nellie Olsen flashbacks. No thank you.
A hip mom/designer from Brooklyn has given the bonnet a long-overdue makeover. CMP fave Petite Violette’s new spring offerings include dainty but modern floral print bonnets, reversible to a solid color, with ties that secure the bonnet under your little girl’s chin. Beyond stylish, they’re functional, especially for the UV-wary–the brim shades her face and the sides cover her ears so you can save the SPF for her shoulders.
Bonnets cool enough for Brooklyn? Who would have ever imagined. –Julie
