Baby Fashion Show

Why wait for Fashion Week or the next season of Project Runway for your fashion-show fix? I’ve got your front-row seat to the cutest show in town. Well, I’m admittedly a bit bias, but I think you’ll enjoy these little numbers. They're a few of the baby things I’ve purchased since finding out I’m having a girl.  
Now, I know it may seem odd to photograph clothes, but I’m a scrapbooker, and that’s what we do. We photograph life’s details so that we can transform them into documented memories. Or at least into happy blog posts. 
With that, dim the lights. This cat walk is about to get ultra cute! 
Outfit #1: The Bear Hat
Well, this isn't exactly an "outfit," but it is one of my favorites. You see, I call Cory "Bear," and this little girl is our baby bear, so a baby bear hat is perfection. What is it about ears on hats that makes 'em so cute? Plus, the fuzz around the mouth is so soft. 

Outfit Info
Size: 18-36 mo.
Purchased at: Naartjie


Outfit #2: Corduroy Overalls 
This outfit is tied for "favorite." I wish the photo did it justice. That you could reach out and touch it. It's so soft. And it reminds me of an outfit my mom bought for me when I was young, so there's that sentimental attachment that means so much. 

Outfit Info
Size: 6-12 mo.
Purchased at: Janie and Jack




Outfit #3: Tiny Summer Suit
This sweet summer ensemble is extra special because it came from a friend. She went out and purchased it (and several other darling things) for me the day she heard I was having a girl. Isn't that nice? It's going to be just right come fireworks time!

Outfit Info
Size: 0-3 Months
Purchased at: Gymboree


Outfit #4: Birdie Jumper
I love a good bargain, and this was part of a fun Tuesday's Treasure promotion that the store has, where a couple of surprise full-price items get marked down 40% every Tuesday, for that day only. Yeah, I pretty much have a standing appointment with that shop every Tues. for the next few years. :)

Outfit Info
Size: 3-6 mo.
Purchased at: Naartjie



Outfit #5: Patchwork Pink Ensemble
This was the second Tuesday's Treasure purchase I made. I adore how the shirt is made up of a patchwork of different prints. And the ruffles on the pants are so sweet!

Outfit Info
Size: 3-6 mo.
Purchased at: Naartjie


Outfit #6: Tea Time Onesie
I found this on my first trip to Baby Gap, and what a find! The little tea cup is appliquéd fabric, and the design has a soft watercolor look to it. 

Outfit Info
Size: 12-18 mo.
Purchased at: Baby Gap



Outfit #7: Bunny Bidnaz
This one had me at the striped pants and tulle trim. Then I saw the matching shoes with the button eyes and it was all over. 


Outfit Info
Size: 3-6 mo.
Purchased at: Naartjie



Outfit #8: Sweater Suit
You may recognize this darling ensemble from an earlier post. As that post describes, it holds a very special place in my heart, and I can't wait to take a picture of my babe in it someday so that I can scrapbook that story. 

Outfit Info
Size: 3-6 mo.


If you think these are cute now, just wait until you see how they look with a baby in them. I can’t wait. When those days finally come, I’ll be sure to take some photographic evidence to share. ;) In the meantime, thanks for humoring me with this post. I know it’s a bit silly to post about baby clothes, but these sweet ensemebles make me smile, and I hope at least one of them managed to do the same for you. 
Cheers!
