I can totally see my daughter holding her own hand up in protest as I take a picture of her. She’s done it before. And maybe that’s what I love about these so much: they’re cute, of course, but so sweet and child-like. Her expressions are priceless and Brittney, owner of The Golden Tot Shop & designer of that adorable headband pictured here, did a great job of capturing her little one.
But there’s something else I love about this sweet outfit. It’s so innocent and playful, just as a baby’s outfit should be. I may be in the minority — just search #kidsfashion on Instagram if you want to see kids hundreds of thousands of kids dressed in pretty mature outfits — but I love when children are dressed like children in sweet rompers, darling dresses and playful tees. This outfit was made for playtime and imagination. The adage that kids seem to be growing up incredibly quickly these days sure seems true to me… Why not give them whimsical and playful clothing that preserve their innocence as long possible?
I also love that the whole outfit comes from small, handmade brands. Knowing first-hand the challenges small businesses face, I love seeing handmade shops come together to support each other. Shop these brands using the links above (no affiliate links embedded, FYI).
