Meet Suri Eleanor... and our new Suri Dress!

Growing Up Smockingbird Smockingbirdies Suri Teddy Bear Vintage

Your Smockingbird pretties can work all year long with a few key layering pieces, so we wanted to share some of our favorites.  These six staples will winterize your closet and have you ready for fall in no time!  1. Layering tees.  Wear layering tees under sleeveless styles to keep you warm AND fashionable.   Adorable Essentials has some fantastic styles at reasonable prices (and in tons of colors).  I like the 3/4" ruffled sleeve tee (pictured), the 3/4 bubble tee, and the long sleeve with a ruffle at the wrist.  I was seriously impressed with the quality!  Just make sure...
