So many of you have asked where I shop for Charlie and I wanted to share a few of my favorite spots! Let me start by saying do not waste your money on buying your baby clothes for the first few months. Charlie lived in these Gerber onesies and a cozy blanket because 1. they spit up and poop constantly 2. you never leave your home and 3. they go through 4-5 outfits a day. I have so many adorable outfits for Charlie that were either worn once or never worn at all from newborn to 6 months old. You also never know what they will actually fit in – newborn sizes fit him normally when he was 2 months old and he still wears some 3-6 month outfits at 8 months. In Chicago our weather is constantly changing so it’s hard to take into account what he will be wearing just months ahead. Anyways, just buy the basics in the beginning and see how your little one grows over the first couple months. Now that Charlie is eating solid food he stains EVERYTHING, so remember that those investment pieces may get beat up pretty quickly.
Now that Charlie is 8 months old I am having so much fun buying clothes for him! Here are a few of my favorites:
Zara Kids – the cutest tees, leggings, fall sweaters and winter hats
Monica + Andy – the best basics, blankets and burp cloths (seen here)
Sprout San Francisco – such a cute shop. They carry favorite brands like Kickee Pants, Oeuf and Sapling and all of the essentials you need
Monograms on Webster – where we got this bubble, they also monogram winter sweaters and hats!
Old Navy – the best deal!
Joe Fresh (runs 1-2 sizes too big)
Gap Kids (runs wide)
Nordstrom – for EVERYTHING, like my favorite stroller here
Neiman Marcus – for extra special pieces, like these adorable overalls
Freshly Picked – the cutest moccasins
Target – the best Carter pajamas, Charlie loves the little animals on the feet! Also loving this Oh Joy! onesie
Ok guys, what am I missing? Any favorites stores? Charlie is wearing a gingham bubble from J.Crew baby that is sadly no more…
