As autumn is approaching faster than we hoped and the weather is starting to indicate that winter is on the way, it is sadly time to pack away our shorts and t-shirts and get our winter wardrobes ready.
Fortunately, the changing of the season gives us an opportunity to go out shopping and the new season fashions are already available. Summer baby clothing is cute and colourful, but I personally feel there is nothing quite like wrapping up your baby in soft and warm winter clothing. Hats, jumpers, socks and moccasins are great for keeping our little ones snug and they look great too!
The modern ‘tied top’ hats by Bob and Blossom are perfect for keeping out the autumn chill. In a range of modern and pretty colours, these cute hats are washable jersey cotton and come complete in a gift bag tied with a ribbon. It would make a great newborn baby gift or simply a staple part of your own baby’s winter wardrobe.
While I love to dress my little one in modern baby clothing, I do like to add a few traditional pieces such as this lovely old-fashioned style jumper from the Tootsa MacGinty collection. It is made from an ‘itch free’ blend including wool, cotton and cashmere and can be washed in the machine on a delicate cold wash.
A pretty hedgehog on the front stands out beautifully against the red jumper and it looks adorable on every baby.
You can never have enough pairs of socks, and this bright and colourful stripy pair by Katvig is perfect for keeping those tiny toes warm. The tops are gently elasticated to help them stay in place and all the socks in this collection are made from organic materials.
A pair of moccasins will protect your baby’s feet from the elements without restricting them. A great item for your autumn baby clothing collection, these stylish stripy moccasins by Nowali are machine washable, have soft soles so your baby’s foot can develop naturally, and have a non-skid bottom that is perfect for when your child starts to become mobile.
So embrace autumn 2011 with a great selection of cute and cuddly baby clothing.
