|This was not Clara's funnest day - she didn't love the snow. At all.|
Baby clothes are expensive. Well...let me take that back....really cute baby clothes tend to be really expensive. There are certainly affordable lines for tiny tots...but they don't always wow me. (Do baby clothes need to wow me? No.)
Sometimes I feel sad I can't dress my little one in the latest Tea collection, or Janie&Jack (ohmygod)...because those clothes are BEAUTIFUL and I'd love to see my little Clara in those fine designs....just for fun you know? Except...if I won't spend $50 on a top for me I certainly won't spent $50 on a top for my 11 month old...who will inevitably grow out of it pronto. (Umm...I won't even spend $20 on a top for my little angel....I won't....even when I wish I could....I won't.)
I seek out steals and deals. And my schedule doesn't allow me to do this diligently. I don't even make it to a Target every month...and I can count on one hand the times I've been to a MALL since Clara was born (except I did get to go a couple weeks ago...it was fun...not gonna lie.) I have found some goodies at Target, Kohls, Old Navy, babyGap, Macy's, and crazy8.
I did happen to hit a Target jackpot a few months ago weekend when I bought 10 dresses/outfits for $3 each - HOLLA! AND they are all cute....well...not dazzling cute....or "wind beneath my wings" cute...and not exactly full price cute...but cute none the less. I have started to buy the "next season up a size." I've got a little collection going so I never really have to shell out cash
I was totally consumed with ensuring Clara had proper winter wear. She had a puffy snow suit for 6-9 month range...and then she got one in the 12 - 18 month range...AND a puffy winter coat for days when the snowsuit would be too much. WELL...she wore each snow suit once...as there was virtually no snow this season....what can you do?
Do you have any tips for buying baby clothes?? Fave shops? Coupon collections??
