I received Elegant Baby samples to facilitate this review; all opinions are my own.
My best friend lives in Holland and when both of us became pregnant last year, I started talking with my husband about taking a trip to visit once the babies were born. We both agreed it was a great excuse for a trip.
Two baby girls later, along with some planning and an empty savings account, we had our trip booked and we were ready to start thinking about what to pack. During our time in Europe we had planned a few nights near Amsterdam where they live, followed by a week in Tuscany, and a few nights back at their house to wrap up our trip before flying home. When considering what to pack I made sure to ask about weather so I could be prepared with appropriate clothing for the family. I also knew this trip would be filled with some amazing pictures so picking out adorable outfits for my six month old daughter was crucial. Although I knew I had some essentials, I was excited to use this trip as an opportunity for some shopping.
Elegant Baby: Perfect for Travel and Special Occasions & Everyday
I had the chance to pick out some very precious outfits from Elegant Baby for my daughter Paisley with our trip in mind. I wanted to be sure she had warm outfits to wear while enjoying dinner at the center in Siena, or while walking down the streets in Venice. I know, it’s kind of ridiculous for a six month old to have this opportunity, but having friends in Europe is an opportunity we had to take advantage of.
Paisley was bundled up in her Raspberry Cardigan and matching hat as we visited the cities of Montepulciano and Pienza one day. It was a cold and rainy day but she stayed warm and looked cute as a button as we pushed her stroller down the stone and brick streets. Her little hat kept her head and ears warm in the chilly weather and matched the outfit perfectly. People could not stop raving about how adorable she was in her outfit both in English and Italian, which sounds so much more beautiful. Paisley was milking each compliment as she smiled at every passing stranger on the streets, almost like she knew she was the cutest baby around. Even Mehgan was in love with the comfy pants, asking Paisley if they made those in her size.
I absolutely love the quality of these two items. The knitted clothes are soft to the touch and fit her perfectly. They have been through the wash and after letting air dry, have maintained shape and quality. I was almost worried to let such a young baby wear such nice quality clothing as I knew they wouldn’t last long with the occasional exploding diaper or unpredictable spit-up, but both the pants and sweater have passed the test.
Elegant Baby: Perfect for Everyday
Two other items I was eager to get for Paisley included the Knit Lambie Dress. I was almost excited to see the dress was just a little too large for her still because this meant she could wear it during the fall and winter months with tights or leggings. The headband was absolutely precious and added a little flair to all of her outfits. I love that it’s white because it can be worn with almost anything.
We had such an amazing time on our trip and I loved getting to dress my baby girl in some of the most adorable outfits. I cannot wait to make my next purchase from Elegant Baby for not only my little Paisley, but also for her two new cousins; one born just two weeks ago and another cousin coming February 2015. I’m looking forward to spreading the Elegant Baby love!
