It’s still pretty hot in most parts of the country, but September is September, so warm weather isn’t keeping us from daydreaming about all things Fall. Soon, the air will get cooler, leaves will drop, Halloween costumes will be chosen, and trips to the pumpkin patch and apple orchard will be underway.
One of our favorite parts about the changing seasons is of course, the changing wardrobe! While you are busy mentally stocking your children’s dresser with Fall tights and sweaters, we here at Southern Scarlett have been busily stocking our children’s clothing boutique full of the cutest and most comfortable Autumn-friendly dresses, sweaters, and outfits for your little ones.
Today we’d love to share some of our favorite Fall pieces from Petit Ami and Zubels (can you say pumpkin applique dress and itch-free sweater?), and tell you a little about why we’re so smitten with these brands.
Chances are if you’ve spent even a moment browsing children’s clothing online, you’ve come across Petit Ami and are familiar with their high quality, heirloom-inspired children’s clothing. These exquisite threads are the object of desire of many a modern parent, and who can blame them? They’re straight out of the dreamiest storybook.
A little bit about the brand: Petit Ami is a family owned and operated business that has been creating innovative yet classic children’s clothing for more than 50 years. Inspired by the beautiful style of our great-grandparents, Petit Ami’s in-house designers produce impossibly adorable outfits that draw plenty of nostalgia and are intended to be treasured for generations.
The details are exquisite. From hand embellishments such as smocking, feather stitching, shadow embroidery, plus the delicate lace and soft colors, it’s perfectly clear why this is brand is a top choice for parents everywhere.
That’s also why we’re so proud to be able to offer some of their extraordinary little outfits as a part of our Fall collection at Southern Scarlett! Today we’re sharing some details about two of our favorite Petit Ami pieces, the pumpkin applique dress and the pumpkin jon jon.
This pretty pumpkin applique dress from Petit Ami is the perfect choice for your little darling’s trip to the pumpkin patch or apple orchard this Fall. It features a houndstooth brown pattern with delicate white sleeves and collar, green trim with a tiny bow, and of course – a festive and playful pumpkin applique on the bottom of the skirt. The pumpkin applique dress is classic, adorable, and everything we’ve ever needed in a Fall dress. Can’t you just picture your sweetheart enjoying a hay ride in this pumpkin applique dress? Dressed up with a fancy bow and some complementary tights…. too sweet.
For the little boy in your life, Petit Ami’s coordinating pumpkin jon jon is the perfect antidote to the end of summer. The pumpkin jon jon set features a cute dump truck and pumpkin applique on the chest, beautiful brown houndstooth fabric, a snap closure on the legs, and a matching white undershirt. With soft fabrics and plenty of room to move, he’ll be as comfortable as he is adorable. This pumpkin jon jon is also giving us major visions of “ecstatic toddler running in a corn maze.” All the heart eyes!
Another of our favorite Petit Ami ensembles is the girls dinosaur outfit. This is the perfect little selection for the dinosaur loving little girl in your life. It’s lightweight enough to wear for playtime and beautiful enough to be worn for a special occasion. The top features a playful and fun dinosaur applique and a sweet bow and is perfectly paired with light pink matching pants with quaint little ruffles at the hem!

No Fall and Winter wardrobe would be complete without one very important element: sweaters! Synonymous with Fall, a classic children’s sweater is perfectly paired with a corduroys, a jumper, or a skirt and tights. You just can’t lose the children’s Fall fashion game with a beautiful sweater.
While certainly fun to purchase and style, sweaters are also a major point of frustration for many parents. All too often, children’s sweaters are made from itchy, stiff, synthetic fabrics. How many times have you lovingly dressed your toddler in a pretty little sweater only to have them pull it off and tell you it’s too scratchy? You can’t argue with that, but what a disappointment!
We are firm believers that kids clothing can be beautiful AND comfortable, especially for kids with sensitive skin. That’s why we are so in love with the itch-free, crazy soft sweaters from Zubels that we currently have in stock at Southern Scarlett.
Zubels’ gorgeous handcrafted itch-free sweaters are a game changer for kids and parents alike. Made from 100% super soft cotton, these sweaters are ideal for kids with sensitive skin. Soft enough to cuddle, these itch-free sweaters will be your child’s first pick when it comes time to get bundled up, and you’ll just go crazy for the trendy designs (animal prints and more!), which alone are worth drooling over.
Southern Scarlett currently has six adorable Zubels’ itch-free sweater designs stocked in our children’s clothing boutique. For the girls cotton sweaters we have the Owl, Llama, and Christmas Reindeer designs. For boys cotton sweaters, we have the Dinosaur, Tiger, and Snowman designs. These sweet animal prints are just perfect for the any occasion, but especially suitable this coming Fall!
Let me guess – you’re imagining your sweethearts decked out in itch-free sweaters for a Christmas photo with Santa. You’re not alone! These boys and girls cotton sweaters are absolutely perfect for a fuss-free, beautiful holiday photo. Itch-free sweaters also make wonderful Christmas gifts.
We don’t blame you at all if you just have to take one of each design because you can’t decide which is the cutest. Knowing your baby will be nice & warm in an itch-free sweater while not tugging at their sleeves in discomfort is priceless, but these itch-free sweaters are also quite affordable. They run a little large, so be sure to keep that in mind when ordering.
Another reason we love Zubels’ is because they use eco-friendly, low-impact dyes, natural materials and environmentally friendly processes while making these boys and girls cotton sweaters. All this means you can feel confident about who you are supporting and what materials you are using to clothe your precious baby. Made from 100% cotton means also means that they are completely machine washable, which only makes your life easier, and that is no small thing for a busy parent.

We hope you enjoyed learning more about Petit Ami and Zubels’ today! We never get tired of sharing tidbits about the brands we offer here at Southern Scarlett. We take great care in seeking out brands that we wholeheartedly support, because we believe in a child’s right to be comfortable while still looking adorable. Children’s clothing doesn’t have to be such a struggle, and we are dedicated to making the process of shopping for your children’s clothing that much easier for you.
Happy (almost) Fall, everyone!
