Two-post Thursday! OMG. Did you guys die over the pictures from Pippa Middleton’s wedding this weekend?! I can’t get over how stunning Kate looked in that Alexander McQueen silk dress, and THE BABIES. ZOMG. Especially love the snap of Kate shushing the kiddos as they head into the church.
This reminded me that before mini was born, I was in the process of writing a series of posts on minimagpie style, and I mentioned that I had three different looks for her: southern baby, hipsta baby, and Eurobaby, but I never got around to the third. So, these pictures of Euro royalty decked out for the wedding of the year were a sufficient impetus to pick back up where I left off.
Also: this A.L.C. dress reminded me in color and sensibility of the dress Kate is wearing, and I want it. Just the kind of thing a sophisticated lady would throw on for a daytime meeting.
At any rate — my favorite brands for your Euro royalty baby:
+Briar bonnets ($36).
+Isabel Garreton makes some exquisite old-school christening-type pieces, like this two-piece set ($150) for a special occasion. (This monogrammed Etsy dress also caught my attention for a baby’s christening — and only $29!)
+Ralph Lauren Briley shoes ($45). Mini owns a pair in pink.
+All of the pieces from Pretty Originals are ridiculous — like this two-piece set ($85) or this linen boys shorts set ($69). Fit for a little prince or princess. For the latter, a pair of saddle shoes ($38) and knee-high socks are de rigueur.
+A pair of gorgeous Mon Petite Shoes ($49) finish this look.
+Oscar et Valentine (75 Euros for set below) has some amazing pieces at insane pricepoints (in a bad way…). The kind of thing your wealthy aunt might contribute at a baby shower. La creme de la creme.
+Finally, Jacadi is a slightly more affordable French line with the most darling baby clothes. Love the pink crib set ($65) below, but also love all of the line’s collaborations with Liberty of London floral prints, like this sweet infant dress (on sale for $61).
+For sleepwear, Petite Plume’s adorable mini grandpa pajamas (on sale for $46) are perfect for your little gent.
+And for your little princess, these Charmajesty Linens pajamas ($89).
Whew. I could honestly keep going — there are SO many adorable European brands if you’re into traditional baby wear. But I’ll stop here.
