FHB Style: Spring Florals

Nothing beats those dreary Winter blues than some Springy blue florals, which is exactly what Baby Reese is doing here in her new Old Navy Floral-Print Tie-Hem Top. From it’s Peter Pan collar to it’s elasticized hem with tie in front, she could not be more on trend! As my mom said, “it looks like something you own but in mini!” She finished off the look with a pair of Old Navy Capri white leggings, perfect for all of her strolls through the park, or in this case climbing up and down her bookshelves. Not shown are her new Mary Jane jelly sandals in clear because now that she’s walking, I am obsessed with cute footwear.

Since Reese’s entire outfit came to under $30.00, I had a little bit of time to shop some gorgeous blues for my ever-growing baby bump. I am so torn over whether to get the Maternity Bandana-Print Maxi Dress or the Maternity Printed Crepe Maxi Tube Dress, or both!

Make sure to hit up Old Navy if you need a pick-up from your winter blues!

FHB Style: Spring Layers

Baby Sparkly Toms, Baby Old Navy

I am all about the layering trend … I usually pick out my vest or cropped jacket before I even pick out my shirt! So come Spring since I can’t fathom parting with the trend, I just find layers that won’t weigh me down – the perfect solution being a denim vest. {See last Spring how I rocked a denim vest over a Spring Outfit in my Colorblock Style Post; shop this similar light denim vest for only $32.94.}

Baby Reese being the Fashionista that she is, is also a lover of vests {see how she wore her Patagonia one this Fall in this Baby Trend Post}. So when she saw Mamma playing around with the trend, she whined that she needed one as well to compliment her adorable Old Navy Eyelet-Sleeve Terry Tunic and Sparkly Baby TOMs. I found an AMAZING white denim vest for her at Old Navy {originally $19.94, now only $15.00!!) – see link for the Old Navy White Denim Baby Vest here. {Just a heads up, I had to go a size bigger – she needed an 18 month size while she is usually 12 month!}.

I mean don’t you just die for this?! Spring time festivities, here we come!

FHB Style: Baby’s 1st Birthday Outfit

Babys first Fendi.001

When your baby’s first birthday party comes around, it is truly a celebration. All of your friends and family flock to the birthday party {no matter the distance} and the spotlight is on your baby. Everyone wants to hold, kiss, and squeeze him or her and the amount of photos taken come close in number to the paparazzi catching the Kardashians exiting an NYC hotel. So what is your baby to wear on a day that will be documented in photos that sit on your grandmothers, great grandmothers, aunts, cousins, and even husband’s bedside table? FENDI of course!

Ok so I know what you are thinking – this girl is OFF HER ROCKER. $429.00 for a dress my one year old is going to drool on, sneeze on, get cake on, and wear once?!?! Ok well as much as I would like to think I am the best mom in the whole world and would spend any amount on my baby, I wasn’t so sure I would be taking the plunge either… so I was THRILLED when I found out about BorrownMiniCouture.com. Ever heard of Rent the Runway? Well this is that but for babies. Read on… it’s too good to be true!

Much like Rent the Runway, you pick the dress of your choice and then rent it for a 5 day period. My concern OF COURSE was the return policy. A one year old is going to eat cake for the first time {with a highly probable chance some lands on the outfit} and they still will take it back?! Clearly stated in their FAQ section, they assure you that “every order is 100% insured so you don’t need to worry about those ‘oops’ moments – kids will be kids!” And as for borrowing something that more than likely has been worn before… they “work with a high-quality, professional cleaning team to ensure your outfits look like they just left the designer studio.” Mine came packaged in a beautiful box with tissue paper and was in mint condition – I never even thought twice whether it was new or not!

So which dress did I choose for Reese? She wore the FENDI Ivory Burnt Out Logo Dress, which ran true to size {she wore size 12 month}. It rented for $99.00 for a 5 day rental. Not cheap but way better than it’s original price of $429.00, and if I do say so myself, it came out beyond fabulous in the photos.

I would say that the best part of the rental by far though was the response from the guests. It doesn’t get much cuter than babies in designer duds and I think every guest ‘oooh-ed’ and ‘aaah-ed’ over how fabulous she looked. I even tried to convince Reese’s great grandmother that I needed a Chanel diaper bag to compliment the look, but I am not so sure she went for it. Hehe.

So birthday party dress hunters, wedding occasion dress hunters, or special family photo shoot dress hunters, this one’s for you!! Doesn’t every baby deserve their first designer moment?!
