Spring Is Here at Tea Collection Children’s Clothes

Spring Is Here at Tea Collection Children’s Clothes

I fell in love with Tea Collection clothing last spring, was giddy with last year’s summer line and made a little guy extra happy with a firetruck shirt from 2012’s fall line. The weather is finally warming up here in the midwest and the kids have been begging to wear their lighter clothing. It was only natural that I turn to Tea Collection for some fresh new spring clothing and Emma & Ethan couldn’t be happier.


The kids were so excited with their first outfits that they couldn’t get the sillies out enough for a photo shoot.


Emma was over the moon with her cute little dress and  mini stripe rib leggings. I love the deep richness of the blue combined with the floral dot print on Emma’s skin tone. She loves the drop waist and how flowy the dress is, not to mention how comfortable the entire outfit is to wear. The leggings match perfectly and bring out the beautiful pinks in the dress. When I put the camera down Emma couldn’t resist twirling and twirling.


Inspired by South Africa’s lush flowers and ubiquitous beadwork, we rendered hydrangeas in this bead-dot print. No matter how fast she twirls, the flowers stay put.

  • Mini length
  • Drop-waist dress with full skirt
  • 100% Cotton Jersey
  • Machine Washable
  • Imported


Ethan has always had a love for button down shirts that aren’t overly dressy (aka Hawaiian shirts). When I showed him the camp shirt his eyes lite up and he grinned ear to ear. This is now one of his favorite shirts to wear. It is lightweight, blue (his favorite color), the buttons are fun because of the different colors, is comfortable to wear and looks nice. I like that it’s not gaudy like some of his older favorite shirts, but rather stylish.


In the Limpopo region, “madi a thavha” means “water from the mountain.” Charmed by the words, we created this print.

  • Super soft garment wash for broken-in feel
  • Contrast button detail with pointed collar
  • 100% Cotton, Light Weight
  • Machine Washable
  • Imported

The Encomo side pocket shorts are super comfortable for him to wear with a full elastic waist. Ethan still struggles with snaps and buttons on pants, so the confidence he gains from being able to pull his pants on and go is priceless. The side pockets are in the perfect position for him to hide his little treasures like Hot Wheels and pennies.


Encomo means thank you in the Tsonga language. These simple striped shorts with full elastic waist makes dressing easy. Encomo!

  • Length hits at knee
  • Garment washed for soft hand
  • 100% Cotton, Canvas
  • Machine Washable
  • Imported


As you can see, the sillies have not left the building.


Emma was once again thrilled with modeling a dress. I ordered this dress in the same size as the Hydrangea Flutter Dress above. I tend to get clothes a little big for the kids so that they fit for an entire season. I think that because of the waistband on this particular dress, it’s not advisable to purchase big as it definitely looks too big for her. Fortunately I know it won’t be long until Emma can wear it and have it fit properly.

The title says it all… the skirt is sure to please any little girl as it is a super twirly 3-tier skirt. The colors are bright and pop against the white background. The white gives it a fresh, crisp feel perfect for spring and summer.


It whirls. It twirls. And it sings in the key of spring. The perfect dancing dress in a dancing floral print. Inspired by works from the Ardmore Ceramics artists that we visited in South Africa.

  • Hits at knee
  • Banded waist with twirlable 3-tier skirt
  • 100% Cotton Jersey
  • Machine Washable
  • Imported


I love leggings with dresses because it keeps their little legs from freezing on crisp mornings and they are easily removable if it happens to get too hot in the afternoon. I also love how getting just the right pair helps make the colors pop in the dress.


They mix and match with nearly all of our dresses, and the tiny pin print says Tea.

  • Engineered waistband stays put throughout play
  • Key layering item for spring
  • 100% Cotton, Ribbed
  • Machine Washable
  • Imported


Ethan loves t-shirts, but not just any t-shirt. It has to have something visually stimulating that he likes on it to be worthy of him wearing it. This particular t-shirt he loved the giraffes in the background and the cool jeep. I love the shade of green and how it’s not just a solid color but has little specks of a lighter green in it. It is a light weight shirt perfect for the upcoming hot summer days.


In South Africa’s Kruger National Park, a 7,500-square-mile game reserve, many visitors on safari watch for the big five of lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and Cape buffalo.

  • Original distressed screen-print graphic
  • Raw edge detail at neckline
  • 100% Cotton, Slub Jersey
  • Machine Washable
  • Imported

Sifting through the Tea Collection website just now I found probably five more things I’d love to see on each of my kids. I think there is definitely a print, style or cut for just about anyone’s taste and I enjoy their uniqueness and quality.
