Love is the inspiration behind the gorgeous selection of children’s clothes at Egg. Designer, Susan Lazar wanted to create a line that focused on the loving bond between parent and child by using environmentally-friendly materials and natural fibers to create a stunning collection of fun, modern, trendy looks for children of all ages. What’s fascinating about this boutique is the warmth and care you feel while shopping for the right outfits that will help your young children be creative and expressive while still being able to move around and have fun freely. The concept behind Egg is that many eggs may look the same on the outside but inside holds unlimited potential to what it could be individually. This idea has been translated to the fashionable pieces available at Egg. Celebrities have also become enthralled by the style and selection of clothing for children Egg has to offer.

Maybe you aren’t into the classic kid look but more the preppy Martha’s Vineyard beach scene instead of the cutesy quintessential “toddler clothing”. Vineyard Vines (VV) is one of the more well known children’s clothing boutiques in Washington, D.C. and has a more mature selection of clothing for the little ones that rival the style of the adult clothing. Make no mistake, the cool, effortless style at Vineyard Vines still has a particularly colorful and fun vibe for the younger clientele. If price is not a true concern for you, VV is a wonderful boutique to stop in and grab some of their cool items for the toddlers in your house. Especially if you plan to go cruising Nantucket anytime soon, this shop is a must. If you also love pink whales on your clothes then you needed travel any further.
