…because wardrobe variety is important at any age.
When I was preparing for Leo’s arrival, I wish I had purchased more clothes in the 12+ months category. When you’re expecting, you’re often gifted with heaps of onesies in newborn sizes. While they are mighty cute, mothers often find themselves with countless unworn garments ranging in the 0-to-3 month size.
(I encourage you to keep this in mind for the next baby shower you’ll be attending.)
Now that Leo has entered the very early stages of toddlerhood, I’m putting together outfits with a little more thought. Infants are rather easy to dress: outfits comprising of onesies, cotton pants, and soft-soled shoes are the way to go. But now, Leo is up and about: he’s playing, crawling, and learning to walk (!!!). I aim to mix-and-match his clothes, going for a capsule-style wardrobe (toddler-style).
Recently, I checked out The Children’s Place to shop their newest collections. I love how most of their offerings are sold in sets: incredibly convenient yet still perfect for mix-and-matching. Not to mention, their newest Baby Bundles line makes shopping for your little ones easy, budget-friendly, and super fashionable. Buying only a handful of items (especially from Baby Bundles), I managed to complete a good chunk of Leo’s springtime ensembles.
Key Pieces to Have in Your Toddler’s Wardrobe
Okay, so Leo is still a little tyke… and yeah, there’s a lot of lounging around at home (and mama cannot complain!). This outfit is exactly what we needed for our day-to-day routine. Straight from the Baby Bundles line, this set came complete with a zip-up hoodie, 2 onesies (one long-sleeve and one short-sleeve), and comfy loungewear pants. Perfect for playing and snuggling with mommy!
When Leo’s accompanying me to my (endless) errands, we’ve got to stay casual and cool. This outfit screams comfy yet, stylish… leaving us looking and feeling our best (and ready for an IG photo-opp).
Fun in the Sun
Now that warmer weather has bestowed my neck of the woods, we’re going into full-swing with sun-friendly outfits. This shorts-and-button-down combo is too adorable for words. Plus, it’ll be great to pack for our upcoming summer vacation.
Sporty and Spunky
Oh, so you have a toddler? So you’re used to running around, sweating, and attending play-dates alongside your little munchkin? Then you’ve got to add a stylish tracksuit to your toddler’s wardrobe. It’s key for layering and staying comfy while being active.
Do you ever feel like your kids have more social gatherings than yourself? I swear, birthday parties and play dates take over most of our weekend plans. Make sure your little one is looking dapper with some formal-wear. I picked out this suspenders-and-pants set and can’t wait for my little man to wear it on Easter.
The basic bodysuit from the Baby Bundles collection is key to have in your toddler’s wardrobe. Think of it as your basic tank or white tee. It’s convenient to wear under cardigans and amazing for layering. (You know, on the coldest winter days and your child’s shirt lifts up as you carry him?) Well, with these, no more exposed, cold skin – yay! Trust me, they’re totally a must-have.
How do you put together your baby’s wardrobe? What are some key items that you consistently keep in mind for their outfits?
Visit The Children’s Place for baby clothing (or baby gifting) made easy thanks to their convenient and stylish outfit sets – especially from their Baby Bundles line. In fact, my bestie is celebrating her baby shower within a month’s time, so I’ll be browsing the Baby Bundle layette line for her big occasion!
