Every year right about now, I am so excited to whip out my fall wardrobe that I start wearing my new sweaters in hopes of forcing the weather to get cold. It’s always too early, which results in an extra-sweaty couple of weeks.
I would not put my kids through this uncomfortable process, but getting an exclusive sneak peek at the just-released-today Fall 2011 collection from CMP favorite Appaman
has made me very seriously reconsider.
[Don’t miss an amazing giveaway after the jump!]
If you’re not familiar with Appaman (what?!), they’re a Brooklyn-inspired, urban-adorable, and
utterly wearable clothes line — in other words, ridiculously cool street clothes that
are also completely kid-comfortable and made to last.
We’re especially fond of the blazers and jackets in the fall collection, like the mini professor tweed blazer
(check out those corduroy elbow patches – pictured right) and down-filled polar coat
we love the zigzaggy moto jacket and gorgeous Madeline peacoat (left) with a unique shape that’s classic but stylish.
outerwear runs in the $80-$100 price range–which is not bad at
all, considering it’ll get worn almost every day. Once it’s actually
chilly out, of course. C’mon, fall!. -Lexi
Congratulations to the winner, Arely C.! Her girl will be all set for the fall with her new Appaman backpack filled with hats, mittens, scarves and a long-sleeve tee.
