Sarah Clary has a thing for kids’ fashion. And by thing we mean mad talent. It’s her quirky pairing of color and pattern that’s landed her Stylist gigs at everywhere from J.Crew and Gap to Vogue and Small Magazine. We’ve already bookmarked Clary’s new kid-fashion blog, House of Jelly. (Her recent sneakers roundup alone is worth a click.) But trendspotting aside, Clary’s real passion is classic children’s wear.
