The Fashion Magpie Inspired by The Royal Baby

Inspired by…The Royal Baby.

Like everyone else, I was voyeuristically awaiting the birth announcement of Meghan and Harry’s royal baby last week — and how sweet!

Meanwhile, I feel as though everyone is giving birth right now and I’m sitting here, swelling larger and larger. Despite the fact that I was convinced my son would arrive early, I’ve now decided I must resign myself to the fact that I’ll be waiting until the end of the month for baby boy to arrive on the date of his scheduled c-section.

At any rate, Archie’s arrival left me inspired to source gifts, clothing, and other baby gear finds fit for a royal baby:

LA STUPENDERIA ONE-PIECE (ON SALE!) OR THIS FOR A GIRL (ALSO ON MAJOR SALE!)

DEBUCI BABY TEDDY BEAR (MINI’S GIFT TO MICRO — CAN BE HAND EMBROIDERED!)

MONOGRAMMED PLAYSUIT (I HAVE GIVEN THIS AS A GIFT TO SO MANY FRIENDS WHO HAVE GIVEN BIRTH — SO CLASSIC!)

P.P.P.S. Recent favorite under-$110 finds: this embroidered cotton dress (looks like an Ulla!); this bow-shouldered blouse; this straw hat; wooden heart earrings.

  1. Oh, I love Pepa & Co.! They make little girls look like little girls. I’ve had some good luck at Smocked Auctions for very reasonable priced smocked dresses. And quality was good!

    1. Yes, yes: “They make little girls look like little girls.” Thanks for the tip on Smocked Auctions! I’ve been eyeing a few pieces from there, too! xx

  2. So many cute ideas! Btw, Shop Duck Duck Goose is having 40% off a large selection of items – including Natives and Cientas (and so many adorable outfits). I need to stop shopping these pre-summer sales!

    1. OMG!!! Thank you so much for the tip. I’m loading up my cart with amazing finds from Little English!
