Ask a pregnant woman why she wants to have a girl, and 9 times out of 10 the reply will be “because baby girl clothes are so much nicer!” Sorry boys, I have to agree. The options for girls are just so damn gorgeous! Though, I’m probably impartial because I have a little girl to dress. And truth be told, choosing her clothes in the morning is my FAVOURITE part of the day 🙂
So, now that I’m blogging more and discovering many more parenting blogs too, I have been wanting to do a “baby outfit of the day” type post for ages. I love looking at flat lays of baby clothes on other mama blogs, but wondered… am I cool enough to do this?
In short, no. Let’s face it, I’m anything but “cool” these days. I’m sleep-deprived. I’m singing bizarre songs in my most high-pitched voice as I try and distract my daughter into eating just one. more. spoon. PLEASE! Also, I haven’t heard new music in ages because I’m too scared to turn the radio on in my car in case she wakes up. Oh, and I still sometimes wear my maternity yoga pants. To put this into context… I haven’t been pregnant for 15 months.
So screw worrying if I’m a loser for spending my evening placing and photographing baby clothes because as established… I’m not doing anything else remotely cool anyway! 😛
Khadija wore this outfit to a soft-play centre last week. We were there for her friend Laily’s 3rd birthday, who just so happens to be the first “baby” friend that came to the hospital to meet Khadija when she was born. Just one of the many reasons Laily is very special for us 🙂
This outfit was a present for Khadija from the US (we don’t have Gymboree in the UK). In general, I don’t like US brands too much; the difference in quality between US and UK baby clothes is really big! But of course there are many exceptions, such as this knit dress, and those shoes!! Unfortunately though, they kept slipping off, even though they are the right size…
Last but not least, this is a mish-mash outfit (my favourite kind). The Zara dungarees were from trendy Aunty Nazish.
