If there’s any secret to a well-dressed babe, it’s a well-organized mama. I find myself planning so far ahead, buying clothes out of season so that they’ll arrive on time or buying items at the end of the season for the following year in order to stay on top of festivities and holidays. I already purchased this $18 bow-shouldered dress for her for the Fourth, and she’ll wear it with a big navy bow and her water-friendly Salt Water sandals.
For the days around the fourth, I took hearty advantage of Jacadi’s red collection this season; I was especially drawn to cherry print goodies like this pair of sneakers, which I can’t wait for her to grow into. (I have it on good authority from a longtime Magpie reader that Jacadi’s sneakers are the absolute best-made ones you can find for a new walker — they hold up in the wash, come in great colors, and apparently sell out quickly. I like these in gray and these in either color.)
And if you want to go all out in traditional smocked glory, look no further than this for your baby girl — I’ve purchased from this store before and have been extremely impressed with the quality — and this for your baby boy.
