Five a Day........Day 1

New DSL Summer Clothing Line

I was trying to think of a fun way introduce my new summer clothes instead of listing them all at once. The result is 5 a day......I am going to feature 5 new outfits a day until all the new line has been featured. Stay tuned to see them all.

Carnival Bloom
This is one of my top three favorites for the summer line. The top is a ruffled top that can double as a dress. It also comes with a straight legged pant. The primary cloth for this outfit is Michael Millers brown Carnival Bloom. This outfit is perfect for dress or play.

Minnie Mouse Version 2
This is one of my other favorites from the summer line. This outfit is perfect for your little one for dress or play. Taking a trip to Disney? This outfit would be perfect. The top is a ruffled top that can double as a dress or be worn with the pants. This outfit also comes with a straight legged pant. One of my favorite parts of this outift is the Minnie Mouse topper bow!! I love it!!!

Checks and Dots
This outfit combines a aqua gingham check with a lime green and white polka dot. The top is a straight short top with ribbon straps and a ribbon trim around the bottom of the shirt. The pant is a staight legged pant with a ruffled bottom that is trimmed in the same lime green and white polka dotted ribbon that is on the top. Very fun stylish outfit.

Under the Sea
This is another one of my favorites for the summer. The outfit is a A-line style top with a staight legged capri. The outfit is a light pink and white stripped seersucker material. The bottom of the top and the capris are trimmed with rick rack. The mermaid and fish on the top are removeable for easy care. The outfit can be worn with the mermaid or just as a monogrammed top. The bows on the legs of the capris are removeable as well. This outfit is perfect for a beach vacation!!!

A Day at the Beach

This outfit is perfect for the beach!! It is a light purple with a purple and white striped ruffle on the pant. The top has a bucket and shovel and flip-flops. The top is a swing style top and the pant is a wide-legged ruffled pant.

Thanks for stopping by for the first five outfits. Check back tomorrow to see the next five...there's plenty more to come. Photobucket
