Honestly, the most practical gift for a newborn is a set of soft pajamas, because that's really all they're going to wear when they're so tiny and you're hoping to keep them away from people and germs. Now where it really gets fun is when your baby gets a little bigger and the holidays roll around, and you really get to show off your cherub when you're having get-togethers and parties with all your family and friends. THAT is when having a little doll baby all dressed up in something extravagant is the most fun of all! I hooked up with Princess Bowtique again to show you all of the simply fabulous seasonal outfits and accessories that your baby girl should be wearing this summer!
Now where to start!? At no cost to facilitate this review, I was sent a number of the most adorable Memorial Day and 4th of July outfits, and each one is almost too cute for words.
This first outfit is the White Petti Romper for Babies and Toddlers. The beauty of rompers is that they are so stretchy and will grow with your baby. This is the 3-12 Month size, and clearly, it can work for my then-2-month-old and up to much larger. A white romper is so easy to pair with all sorts of other accessories, it photographs well, and it looks so fancy! This Red White Blue Vintage Style Baby Girl Headband is so sweet! The white band is not a cheap or thin fold-over elastic, but instead rather thick and more material-like. The chiffon flowers and flag ribbons make this sophisticated, like something you'd see on royalty at a parade!
This Ocean Blue Baby Chiffon Cotton Dress is the perfect party dress! There's a lot of cuteness but not a lot of fuss, as in you can still strap your baby into their car seat when wearing this because there aren't gobs and gobs of tulle to mess around with! I love taking my baby to church in this because it is low-maintenance while still super cute.
And then there is this little show-stopper! The Fireworks Red White Blue Baby Girl Tutu Dress has a white crochet bodice with bursts of red, white, and blue strips of tulle, making it full, fluffy, and PERFECT for parades! I've never seen these little knots on the ends of the tutu strands before, and I love the effect! Every part of this dress is stretchy or adjustable so this could fit 0-18 months! You could buy this for your baby at practically any age and not have to worry if it will fit around the 4th of July. The Vintage 4th of July Baby Flower Headband is just the perfect topper for this little number.
And now we have the Oh So Classy Black Chiffon Soft Baby Pettiskirt and a zebra top knot head wrap! What I love about Princess Bowtique's pettiskirts is that they have an adjustable waistband so that your doll really can wear this from 0-18 Months. This is also available in 2T-3T and 4T-5T. There is so much fluff to this skirt! I love it! It is nice and full, while still so soft. I'll choose pettiskirts over tutus any day because you don't have to worry about these getting wrinkled. This is key when it comes to storing, and for busy babies who just won't sit still!
Princess Bowtique has some of the most adorable hair bows! Many of them are made on clips that can fasten to headbands, allowing them to be worn on a baby with little hair on up to a toddler age girl. This Red White Blue Baby Hair Bow and Headband has so much personality! So much ribbon and just a touch of red marabou puff. It is constructed to be able to hold its shape, which is also useful if you plan on storing it and pulling it out every summer!
I saved my favorite outfit for last :). This is the starred and spangled Stars and Stripes Satin Petti Lace Romper for Babies and Toddlers and isn't it as sweet as can be?! Paired with a white Tulle Flower Headband, this outfit couldn't be more perfect for picnics, fireworks, and parades! I love all these layers of frills and lace and the simplicity of the design. Basically the entire outfit is constructed of elastic so there is a huge amount of stretch. I bet Baby B could wear this next 4th of July too, based on how much room there is to grow inside.
