birthday clothing for toddlers

Birthday Outfits for Little Ones.

Are you gearing up to celebrate a little one’s birthday? In general, my favorite brand for occasions like birthdays, Baptisms, and the like is Luli and Me — absolutely stunning pieces that you’ll want to pass down to cousins, siblings, grand-children, or maybe just frame in your child’s closet. Show-stopping, heirloom quality pieces with just the right amount of detail and restraint. My heart stops for sets like this and this. Bellabliss’s just-launched heirloom collection strikes a similar tone — I specifically adore this collared romper for a baby boy on his first birthday. I have also had very good luck buying special occasion pieces for mini at Sal E Pimenta — items like this dress are beyond for a spring birthday; I actually bought mini this one for her upcoming fourth birthday!

However, it’s also fun to snag outfits with a deliberate birthday theme — candles, cake, balloons! — and so I’m sharing a couple of precious birthday outfits for toddlers and young children below…

  1. I just bought a Cecil & Lou dress for my baby’s 1st birthday next month and THANK YOU for the sizing tip! So glad I ordered the 9mo instead of her current usual 12mo. We are going with a pastel hearts theme so I got a darling long sleeve blue stripe with pink embroidered hearts. Seems like a great source for the classic look at a reasonable price!

    1. Yay!! It really is a great source, especially for holiday-centric dressing where you are iffy on splurging on something with such a short lifespan. So glad you took the advice to size down!!
