One of the (many) fun things about being a mom is dressing my daughter! I know, I know…. she’ll outgrow letting me pick out her outfits… so for now, I’m just soaking it in and loving dressing up my little baby doll.
While it’s fun picking out baby clothing, it’s super hard to justify spending much money on them, because they outgrow everything so fast! So I’ve compiled a list of my 3 favorite clothing stores to shop for little ones that are both cute and affordable:
- Old Navy: This is where most of Lively’s clothes are from. Their clothes are always so adorable and stylish. Their clothes definitely fit Lively the best (the most true-to-size). And the best part about their clothing… there’s always a sale going on. Old Navy is definitely at the top of my list!
- Gymboree: This is another one of my go-to stores when looking for clothes for Lively. Their clothes are classic and well-made, and there’s oftentimes good sales, too. Like Old Navy, their clothes seem to be most true-to-size.
- TJ Maxx: This one is kind of hit-or-miss, but I’ve found a few really cute things here (i.e. I found Lively’s first pair of hot pink Nike tempos here, some trendy little sweatshirt and legging combos, etc.). They have some of the best prices for name brand clothing. A lot of the brands they carry seem to run a little small, so Lively does tend to outgrow them faster.
One of the biggest ways for me to not overspend on baby clothes has been to buy pieces that are easily mix-and-matched. Dressing little babes is so fun, and by no means has to “break the bank.” What are some of your favorite shops to purchase clothing for your little one?
These are some of my favorite outfits of Lively’s to-date from the stores I mentioned (and just a fun excuse to go down memory lane :))
(this one is actually from Target, but I love it, too!)
Always and forever,
