I’ve had a couple of requests to share outfit ideas for Baptisms/Christenings, as micro’s is scheduled for the end of September. Micro will be wearing a Christening gown that has been in our family for over 100 years (!) that my maternal grandfather first wore and that dozens of children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren have worn since. One of my aunts has had it refurbished (re-matted?) and carefully kept for decades. But — as we will be taking family photos before and then enjoying brunch after, micro will of course need something a little less precious to wear beneath it. (Note: if you do not have a family christening gown, consider investing in one by Feltman Brothers for your own! They are incredibly well-made and stand up to the test of time.)
Below, I thought I’d share a couple of beautiful pieces I am considering for baby and myself:
THIS PEPLUM BLOUSE WITH WHITE TROUSERS
THIS LINEN NICHOLAS (THOUGH I’M WORRIED IT MIGHT BE OUT OF SEASON AT THE END OF SEPTEMBER DEPENDING ON TEMP)
FOR MINI/SIBLING SISTERS
Mini will be wearing a Coqueta Kids smocked dress with crosses on it that I bought last year (!), thinking ahead. (Once a planner, always a planner…) You might find some good picks in this roundup of flower girl dresses if you’re going super traditional, but here are some absolute beauties:
THIS SMOCKED DRESS (SIMILAR TO MINI’S)
LULI & ME FLORAL TULLE DRESS (ON SALE!)
CHRISTENING GIFT IDEAS
PERSONALIZED DISH (<<I BOUGHT THIS FOR ONE OF MY GODSONS!)
P.P.S. Royal baby vibes.
P.P.P.S. Still loving all of the candle scents listed here.
