Baby Outfit of the Day
Do you watch Stories on Instagram? I love them! (favourites include Brummy Mummy of 2, Make Do and Push, Toby and Roo, and What Katy Said) As a way of getting back into blogging and being online, I’ve been doing stories everyday since New Years; just sharing little bits and pieces from our day. One thing I love from Hannah at Make Do and Push is her #BOOTD (Baby Outfit of the Day) – cute little boutique finds and cute baby. What’s not to love?
So I stole it and have been doing it with Nancy. While her outfits are more sale from Tesco rather than unique little finds, I’ve been really enjoying it and seeing how much she’s changing from week to week.
Here are a few favourites from the past month…
BOOTD – 3rd January
8 weeks old
Cardi – Marks and Spencer
This cardigan has been a firm favourite from Gabriella’s mum. I love the little ears and it’s thick, which is ideal for this time of year and in our old house with a temperamental boiler!
Leggings – F&F at Tesco
Reindeer are for life, not just for Christmas. I love these leggings!! A pressie from my mum, she’ll be wearing them until they fit no longer.
BOOTD – 9th January
9 weeks old
Up until this point I had been making do with a few scrapy blue muslins I’d had left from when Reuben was little. My friend and I made it a mission on the same day that my phone screen was being fixed (big day!) to find some new ones and a few wee outfits for the growing Nancy. I got this extra large one, which I’ve also used for swaddling and a pack of 3 smaller muslins, all with these beautiful animal prints.
Dress – F&F (sale)
Some of the first things I bought after having her and finding out Nancy was indeed a girl, were some little dresses from Tesco. Easy to put on and cute.
Leggings – Boots Mini Club, pack of 3
I love these ruffled little leggings, a present from Mike’s Best Man and his fiancé. Not only do they look cute but they are are also great for keeping socks on underneath. I’ve sized up with them (3-6 months) as I find some leggings dig into her tummy.
BOOTD – 15th January
2 months old
Cardigan and ruffled leggings (pack of 3 see above) – Boots Mini Club
I never bought clothes for Reuben from Boots (I can’t remember where I did actually!) but I was so impressed with the lovely clothes there and I got loads of things half price in the sale, including this lovely cardigan. The leggings are from the same set as the ones above. Such a gorgeous print.
Short Sleeve Vest – F&F
From a pack of 5 that she grew out of very quickly!
So, these are just a few of the outfits I’ve liked so far. Nothing boutique or unique but I’m just enjoying this new experience of dressing a baby girl. I’m just playing dress up really, aren’t I?! I’ll keep sharing them each week.
Where do you buy your baby clothes from? Where else should I be shopping?
She’s growing so fast, I can hardly keep up, so I’d love to hear where you get your things from. I’m also going to start charity shopping as I’m sure there must so much stuff that’s barely been used because they grow so fast!
