When Theresa Benincasa gives you a tour of her new Parisian-playroom-evoking children’s boutique, Peanut Butter & Jane, she laughs at the store’s small size and says, “Okay, here it is!” She may joke about her pint-size shop in Wayne, but she’s packed it so efficiently with oodles of well-chosen girl-and-boy stuff that it takes a while to comb through all the goods. Benincasa’s vision is clear — she’s got on-trend but age-appropriate preppy-meets-urban offerings like onesies for twins that say “Wombmates” from Kidsblanks by Zoëy, paisley messenger baby bags from Kalencom, and sweet spring dresses like this one from Matilda + Company ($80), perfect for your green-girl in the making: Each frock is rehabbed from vintage fabric, making it truly one-of-a-kind—just like its rosy-cheeked recipient.
