When it comes to baby girl style, it’s a cake walk. Due to the vast amount of options in girls clothes, your baby can be a dancing ballerina baby, a mystical unicorn girl, a vintage floral loving bambino, a Breton stripe mini-me or kicking in her converse cutie…
Being a Mum of 2 boys first, I found it incredibly frustrating to find a look for Henry and Georgie that didn’t include a dinosaur, Disney character or look like they were wearing miniature men clothes. So it’s beautifully refreshing to have a breadth of styles available for me and my new pink bundle of joy.
For Posy I have found myself gravitating towards pretty florals, washed out stripes and anything in a super soft knits. Having a baby going into spring summer has made shopping for her so enjoyable, as everything holds a promise of warmer days, which means exposed toes and little summer bonnets.
Now approaching her 4th month and our holiday season, I have found myself switching her sleepsuits for clothing an I have to say, I’m relishing dressing up my little girl. Like with the boys my go-to shops haven’t changed. Zara is still my favourite retailer for beautifully design-led pieces that add a little something special to her every day. Not only do they do dresses and rompers so well, but they also do the best-printed leggings, neutral knitwear and wrap vest tops. I’ve also found that I can take one of the boys old blue and white Breton stripe tops and team it with printed leggings and I have a new look for Posy with a touch of nostalgia.
One shop I never thought I would love so much is Marks and Spencers. I was given a gift voucher when Posy was born and on visiting the store I loved everything. Beautiful cotton rompers in blush pinks, princess Charlotte inspired floral dresses and embroidered blouses with little leggings. Let’s just say I spent a miniature fortune.
A constant high-street go to for children clothes for me is Next. They do affordable stylish clothes that are always have a note to kids trends. As I mentioned in my intro, your baby girl can have any look, and Next caters for that diversity. Embroidered dresses, everyday printed jersey rompers and vintage floral sleepsuits are my favourite things. Their sleepsuits this season are so beautiful I bought the next age up when Posh outgrew her Newborn ones.
Next up is George at Asda. Now I have a confession, I find the boys’ aisle incredibly frustrating as it’s logo aplenty. You’re hard pushed to find plain t-shirts amongst the dinosaurs. However the girl’s range has some winners. Printed leggings with little blouses, pretty girly sundresses with matching bonnets and hands down the best floral printed sleepsuits with bows and ribbons.
So as you can imagine I’m over the moon at having so much choice, I just wish Posy wasn’t growing out of everything so quickly.
Where are your go-to clothing shops for your little ones?
