One of the things that I hear most often is how well Stella is dressed. I honestly believe that there is nothing more fun than shopping for her closet. Her closet far surpasses mine in style and quantity. People are always asking where I shop and where her outfits come from, so I've compiled a list of my favorite brands Stella wears on a regular basis!
I would have to say that 80% of her wardrobe comes from Baby Gap and Old Navy. While they are different stores, they're from the same corporate family, so I'm going to lump them together! Baby Gap has been my go to for Stella from day one. They have the cutest classic looks that are perfect for creating a multitude of adorable looks. They are by far my top pick for toddler denim! Old Navy is my go to for basics that are cute, yet affordable! With Stella in daycare, most outfits are only wearable once or twice before they're covered in paint or mud or some other stain that I can't seem to remove. Affordability is a top priority when choosing outfits for her daycare wardrobe!
I also need to add that Baby Gap and Old Navy are my personal favorite stores for her pajamas as well! I've tried sets from other places that are less expensive, but I keep coming back. Their pajamas are very soft, yet durable. They are clear winners in my book for toddler pajamas.
It must be the southern in me, but I am a sucker for a smocked outfit! While smocked outfits can get pretty pricey, Smocked Auctions is my go to for all things smocked! They post daily auctions for all sorts of seasonal smocked apparel. They also post pre-orders which is how I order most of Stella's holiday outfits! The other awesome thing is that this company is based out of Dallas, so twice a year they host a Sample Sale where you can buy pieces for around $29.00 each which is a steal! I'm obsessed!!
We Bargers play hard. Whether its at school on the playground or at home in the garden, we are not the type to take it easy. It's important to me that the outfits I buy Stella for school and play on the weekends are inexpensive, yet cute. Cat & Jack has to be my favorite line at Target. Their $4.50 tshirts and $7.00 leggings are beyond affordable! While some of their items are not for me (I am not a fan of catchy phrases on tshirts) most are adorable! Not to mention, they have adorable shoes as well!
I am definitely a Nordstrom girl, and Stella is headed that way now, too! Two brands that I tend to frequent at Nordstrom, or Nordstrom Rack if I'm lucky, are Tucker & Tate and Baby Boden! I am obsessed with both! Tucker & Tate is the perfect casual outfit as all of their styles are effortless and insanely comfortable! Baby Boden is my go to when I'm looking for a bold print! Their use of color and pattern make for adorable picture outfits! One thing I always buy from Nordstrom Rack is Stella's Northface for the upcoming winter. They always seem to have them available in the spring!! I'm also newly obsessed with Peek for toddlers! They have some of the cutest spring sets out currently!!
Nordstrom is also where I buy all of Stella's shoes! She loves shoes more than toys, so it can be a challenging excursion, but they carry some of my favorite brands, and have the best customer service (even when you're toddler wants to try one every pair of shoes in the department!) I'm going to do a post on my favorite spring and summer shoes soon so you'll have to check it out!
I am a sucker for a monogrammed bubble, especially for the insane Texas summers we have. I am obsessed with the adorable bubbles by EllieHandmades! She has so many cute prints to choose from, and the fabrics are light and cool. They are definitely my go to for summer monogrammed bubbles!
Do you have any other brands I should check out? If so, please share!!!
