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
