Tea Collection has really outdone themselves this season.  The prints are fresh and vibrant and just SO pretty, I was dying to get my hands on them!  It wasn’t easy to narrow it down, but I’ve picked a few –

GIRLS:

I have to lead off with the print getting all the buzz.  “Ocean” is simply to die for – it’s unique, it’s very “now” with its incorporation of gray as the basic, and it somehow keeps Tea’s modern edge while still screaming “Spring!!!”  Check out the Wandoo Wrap Dress in Ocean:

But for us, we just simply couldn’t overlook Han Purple and Waterslide.

Above is the Starflower Twirl Dress, in my opinion the cutest dress for the Han Purple print.  To DIE for!  We paired it with the Pin Dot Capri Leggings.

… and the Waterslide print.  For sigh.  We were delighted that this print is even more vibrant in real life than it is on Tea Collection’s website.  I felt this print worked best on the Wrap Neck Dress and we paired it with the Capri Leggings in “bubble gum.”

Before I move on to boys, I would be remiss if I didn’t say something about girls’ swim.  SO much cuteness this season but our absolute favorite is the Astilbe Pink print.  We always choose the rash guard option, since it avoids sunscreen hassles protects better against the sun.  Sorry this isn’t the greatest pic but you get the idea – to DIE for!!!

BOYS:

For boys this time, I found the swimwear was the highlight.  Especially because we had issues last summer with our Boden swimwear fading.  I honestly couldn’t decide which set I liked better so I got both – this way there will always be a dry one, plus, they’ll hold up better for resale next year.

Set 1 is the Shima Rash Guard with Wobbegong Swim Trunks.

NOTE:  We found the swim trunks run HUGE!  Size 1 full size down.  The rash guards are true to size.

Set 2 is the Bonzer Rash Guard with Noosa Swim Trunks.

So there you have it, my top picks for Tea’s 2017 Spring and Summer lineup.  It took me awhile to warm up to Tea but this season’s selections have me absolutely swooning.  Happy Shopping everyone, and don’t forget to join us in my Facebook group “Claire’s Closet Finds“!
