Falling for Orient Expressed

It may only be mid-July, but in the retail world it is time for fall and winter clothes to start making their appearance, as evidenced by the magazines and catalogs that have been gracing my mailbox. The new Orient Expressed catalog arrived yesterday, and all I can say is, “Ooh la la!” They have some truly adorable options for outfitting the minis this fall and winter.

I’m particularly enamored of:

The Reversible Tractor/ Football Shortall

(This is the other side.)

The Reversible Carriage/ Mouse Jumper

(This is the other side.)

The Reindeer Shortall

The Red and White Checked Big Collared Dress
(This is supremely cute with the collar monogrammed!)

And this delightful little jon jon, which is a repeat item from last year. I ordered it for my tot last fall and I'm thrilled with how cute it is in person.

Of course I can’t forget that Orient Expressed also sells specialty linens. I received a set of their linen hand towels for Christmas a few years ago, and I always look forward to using them. This year’s designs are so fun!

(Aren't these perfect for the preppy house?)

Those of you who’ve purchased from Orient Expressed before know that you have two options for ordering: through your local home show representative or directly from their catalog and website. If you know a local rep, it’s always nice to show them some love, but if not, ordering directly from the company is wonderful, too! (I have ordered both ways in the past and there was no difference in the service I received, although last year I attended a trunk show and was able to check out the designs and sizing in person before placing an order. I found this to be particularly helpful since I was unsure what size my little guy would need.)

Either way, the result is darling!
