Back-to-School with Tea Collection

Val Curtis


We are HUGE fans of the Tea Collection because a) it is adorable, b) it is SO durable, and c) it is SO comfy. We are still waiting for mommy -size versions – ahem. We love that they have a general color palette and that as a result, you can buy some basic pieces and everything will match. PERFECT!

For the first two years of my daughter’s life, she refused to wear dresses – and we had a closet FULL of adorable options. On her second birthday, she received a beautiful, soft little dress from the Tea Collection and that changed the tide. My girl is picky. She likes this, but not that. You get the idea. The items she picks from Tea Collection are worn over and over and over and then we are able to pass them on to a friend. That makes every dollar spent completely worth it.

While you are perusing through, check out the Design Sets. I really adore these. They do the mixing and matching for you.

Each season, Tea Clothing picks a different country for inspiration and this year, it is Japan. The kimono style dresses and the sweet little sweaters will definitely win you over. They are SO DANG CUTE!

Whenever the seasonal catalog comes in, my daughter grabs it right from the mailbox and runs in to start “shopping”. If it was up to her, she would have had 20 items in the cart.


If you have a girl-on-the-go, you will love to layer their dresses with leggings. Again, perfect! She loves those patterned combos that Tea puts together so effortlessly.

We have to share that Tea Collection did not pursue us, we pursued them because they have been a long time favorite in our family. Enjoy!
