I had a number of requests for Easter attire for kiddos! I’ll start with what mini will be wearing: this darling Luli + Me dress. I loved the delicate stitching! I’ll pair it with Condor knee socks and Elephantito Mary Janes.
Minimagpie Easter Bonnet Picks.
I’m debating whether or not she needs a bonnet — I’m so partial to big bows right now! She has a sweet TBBC bonnet (you can get the look for less with this), but I also like this striped Mebi ($27), this delicate ruffled style ($22), and this uber-traditional white style ($21).
You could always make things simple on yourself and buy this darling robin’s egg blue dress with coordinating bonnet ($47). You’d have the chic-est babe in the pew, as ice blue is LA COULEUR du jour (more proof here).
Minimagpie Boy Easter Outfit Picks.
For boys, I like this darling set from Foque or this precious style from Luli + Me. As you can see, I’m more on the traditional side of things, but if those are too frou-frou for your tastes (or your husband’s — I find a lot of men have strong opinions on baby clothes for boys!), this head-to-toe Polo look (seersucker!!!!) is too much!
Minimagpie Easter Dress Picks.
I also love this petal-collared dress, this sweet blue frock with its hand-stitched bunnies, and this gingham bubble (<<$10!!!)
Finally, this bunny-print set ($34) is a no-brainer if you’re looking for something not overly fussy but Easter-appropriate.
And, if you’re not a pastel person at all, this platinum-and-white situation is so chic, especially with those enormous bows on the shoulders!
It’s meant to go hand in hand with this elegant personalized Easter basket!
Minimagpie Easter Basket Picks.
However, my personal top pick for Easter basket is this monogrammed style — not as pricey as some of the other options and — important for those of us tight on space — fabric/collapsible.
Minimagpie Easter Jammies Picks.
I of course always love the prints TBBC puts out, especially these floral beauties, but I’m a little leery of them because I find their sizing runs SO small and narrow and mini is already outgrowing 12-18M clothes in NORMAL SIZES. So does that mean she’d be an 18/24M? I mean, I’ve purchased her several pairs of jammies from TBBC and the legs are SO skinny/tight on her! And she’s not particularly chunky either. I’m burned because I ordered her a pair of gorgeous monogrammed ones and by the time they arrived a few weeks later, she could barely fit into them.
Finally, this bunny-print pair is adorable (shown below)!
Minimagpie Easter Basket Gift Picks.
+These bunny slippers. MEEP.
+Plastic easter eggs — maybe I’ll fill mine with puffs? Mini actually has a few plastic eggs like these that came from a gift set and she LOVES when I open them up and then she helps me snap them closed. (Taking things a step further, this egg toy would probably be well-loved by mini!)
+Books: not particularly Easter-y except for the bunny on the cover, but this has been one of mini’s favorite books since she was itty bitty. She’s recently gotten very into Llama Llama, Red Pajama (she’ll turn the pages and sort of sing/mumble to herself — I think she’s emulating the rhythm of the words when I read it aloud to her!), so this Llama Llama Easter book seems right up her alley. Karen Katz’s Lift the Flap books also tend to go over very well with her — something about the illustrations and colors grab her attention — so this one could be a winner. Finally, for older kids, nothing beats a classic Peter Rabbit box set!
+Finally, this bunny stuffy was the first toy mini ever received — my bestie bought it for her before she was born. It is the softest, cuddliest thing.
P.P.S. Whenever I re-read this post, I weep. I can remember that tender anticipatory time before mini arrived so well and it is the sweetest.
P.P.P.P.S. For parents short on space: this petite crib is stylish/modern and could fit a number of awkward spaces (since it’s round, it wouldn’t need to rest up flush against a wall, for example).
