My friends are starting to have babies. That time has come.
This means I get to spend hours perusing adorable bonnets, frocks and blankets…gawking at dapper little boots and blazers…drooling over miniature designer collections…
And I still get to have cocktails!
One of my dearest friends had a baby shower the other day. It was an afternoon filled with laughter among friends, buckets and buckets of prosecco, lots of talk about Gerber and Pampers, and traditional shower games that made us act like giddy little girls. “A” was radiant as usual…she’s been embracing this pregnancy like a pro, with a serene confidence and permanent smile. It was SO much fun celebrating her that day…
In addition to chatting away with friends and sipping a bottomless glass of bubbly, one of my favorite parts of a baby shower is watching the mom-to-be open all her gifts and goodies! As an auntie to two nephews (the second, actually, will arrive in less than a week!), it was especially fun this time to see so many girly items being unfurled from the pretty packages. A’s little bun-in-the-oven is now the proud owner of a wardrobe so chic, Suri Cruise would be jealous.
If you haven’t be out hunting down shower gifts lately, here’s a little peek at what you might find out there in the world of children’s fashion.

Gymboree and Etsy offer tons of ruffles and rompers for the pint-sized princess. Burberry is, of course, always a classic choice for the tyke who has everything:
Zara Kids also offers incredibly chic dresses….and bonnets for little ladies:
