How to beat the February blues? By adding more blue to your life! Let’s have a look at Amaia’s new Spring Summer collection and its entry of season Tartan!
January and February are always the worst months of the year; it’s cold, dark, dull and we all feel nostalgic from Christmas’ joy and intensity. What works for me to beat this melancholic feeling is to plan holidays and to start shopping clothes for the next season. There is always a promise of brighter, longer, warmer, happier days with summer clothes and their uplifting colours!
If you too love vivid colours, you will be thrilled with Amaia’s 2019 summer wardrobe. It really is a “good vibes” collection full of vitamins, fun and energy with shades of soft fresh blue, a palette of citrus hues and tangy colours. There are ravishing Libertys and playful vibrant checks, elegant stripes, adorable seersucker and crisp smart linen.
Follow me and let’s beat the February blues!
Isle of Skye
Let’s have a closer look at the first part of the collection, Isle of Skye, and its beautiful blue and stylish two tartans, the perfect entry to the new season with matching clothing for the whole family!
The Sienna dress is very flattering for girls with its front pleat and Amaia’s signature Peter Pan collar. Add a bright red hair bow for a cheerful look with matching tights now or knee-high socks later. Tartan is so versatile that it is always a safe bet whether it’s for a relaxed family day or a busy birthday party kind of day!
Poppy will wear the dress while I got Pumpkin the refined matching shorts. As for Baby, he will look gorgeous with the adorable matching all-in-one!
I must admit I hesitated a lot with the other beautiful blue and green tartan. The ravishing smock dress Shirley with its striking cherry hand embroidered smocking was hard to resist to! I also have my eyes on the pretty Molly skirt with its very trendy style with ruffled straps. It’s the kind of skirt which is both easy to wear and elegant. It’s ideal for mid-season when paired with the new Adeline cardigan and with matching tights or Amaia’s cute red openwork socks for a summery look.
Look at this adorable bunch of matching little folks!

Colourful Spring Knits
It’s also time to get Spring knits as it will definitely cheer you up to add some lively colours in your children’s wardrobes!
For boys, the classic Navy blue jumper is a must-have in any boy’s wardrobe but there are also two new bold colours inspired by the vivid and colourful Andalusian ceramics: a Mediterranean blue and a Sage green.
For girls, Amaia Kids has created a new cardigan, the Adeline, with round neck, button-fastening at the front and a combination of plain knit stitch and delicate scallop details around the edges.

Fans of Amaia’s dresses, you won’t be disappointed as all the best-sellers are back in prints prettier than ever! The Moohren, Amaia’s signature dress, comes this season in exquisite Liberty fabrics.

For girls, my favourite summer dress, the Poppy, is also back in pretty Liberty prints and elegant white and ocean blue stripes; it looks stunning on any little girl with its large ruffle all around the front neckline, spectacular bow, sleeveless and v-shaped back.
