My Favorite Places to Buy Baby and Toddler Clothes

It’s so hard not to buy clothes for your baby. Everything is so cute! And the time when you can decide what your baby will way is limited, because then they grow up and they have their own opinions! I’ve loved buying Luca’s clothes, from his first outfit home from the hospital to now, with his big puffy vests he’s been wearing now that the temps are dropping.

Babies grow so quickly, so you feel silly buying clothes they’ll grow out of in a month. For me, I say what the heck, babies are only babies once, and his cute little outfits make me so happy and we need a bit more happiness in the world! Sometimes, it’s the little things, like a $4 onesie you grabbed on sale from GAP, just because!

My Favorite Places To Shop For Baby and Toddler Clothes

There are a few places I shop for Luca and I’ve found basics, some special items, and where I’ve completed his wardrobe. Today, I’m going over all of them!

For all basics

  • GAP: Luca practically lives in GAP. Still to this day, he sleeps in their footed onesies (luckily they have sizing for older babies!) They always have a sale, so I buy during their sales (usually 40% off!) Their simple onesies are great and I love their joggers and sweatpants. They even have great beanies, but I’ve never had good luck with their shoes.
  • Old Navy: a little lower price point than Old Navy and sometimes if I want a corny “I love my Mommy” shirt, I’ll go to Old Navy. They also have great onesies and sets for holidays, like Christmas, July 4th, etc.
  • Carter’s: if I just want really, really basics, like white onesies, I’ll check the price point at Carter’s first, because it’s usually lower than GAP/Old Navy – although, it can be hard to beat their prices when they’re having one of their sales!

For cooler basics and more stylish clothes and accessories

  • ZARA: Probably my favorite spot to get Luca’s clothes, but a bit pricier than the GAP and Old Navy. But, the quality is great, the styles are cool, and they have great sweaters, jackets, and pull overs. It’s not a place to buy a onesie, but if you want a great pair of jeans or joggers and a warm sweater, ZARA is the place.
  • H&M: I usually only go here if I’m looking for something very specific, because I’ve never found they had great quality. But, they have great shoes!

For special occasions, brands, shoes, jackets, and accessories

  • Nordstrom: I find that they have the best selection of special items of all the department stores. From something special (like a baptism outfit) to a heavy North Face jacket, you can find it at Nordstrom. I just bought him his first pair of Vans here, too. Can’t wait for him to start walking in them!

For something extra special (and fun!)

  • Mac and Mia (use code LUCA for $30 in credit): I love Mac and Mia, because it’s like a surprise in a box. I always love getting my Mac and Mia box and see what special items the stylists there have curated. I’m never disappointed and the quality is always great. The price point is higher than the typical places I shop at, which is why I love that it’s a box service – just for some statement pieces or something that I just really love seeing Luca in (like this popsicle onesie that was super super soft he wore to bed and this Ice Cream Castles zip-up he lived in for awhile.) I love them so much I asked them for a discount code to use for my readers. If you enter code LUCA on checkout, you’ll get a $30 credit towards your first box!

air fried shrimp tacos with pineapple mango salsa and guacamole, another meal made fully from a @wholefoods shop! 🌮🍍🥑🍤⁣

~ corn tortillas⁣
~ guacamole⁣
~ pineapple & mango salsa (fresh prepared foods)⁣
~ sliced red cabbage (pre-sliced container)⁣
~ @sirkensingtons chile lime crema⁣

preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees. dredge the shrimp in egg and dip in panko (toss the panko with paprika, onion, chili, & garlic powder, salt, and cumin.) add in a single layer to the air fryer and cook for 7-10 minutes, flipping halfway through (they’re done when golden brown and C-shaped.) spread some guacamole on the tortillas and top with shrimp, cabbage tossed with juiced lime, pineapple mango salsa, and drizzle with the bottled crema. easy peasy! 👏🏼 ⁣

what’s your favorite easy weeknight taco combo? 🌮 #inspiralizedwholefoodsmealideas

super easy lunch idea, made (almost) entirely from the freezer and 100% from @wholefoodsmarket, so next time you go there to shop, grab the following items and make this Teriyaki Tofu and Pepper Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry👇🏼👇🏼

~ frozen riced cauliflower, stir fry style⁣
~ frozen three pepper blend (sliced bell peppers)⁣
~ organic teriyaki sauce⁣
~ @wildwoodfoods teriyaki baked tofu⁣
~ for garnish: white sesame seeds, red pepper flakes⁣

heat a tablespoon of neutral oil in a medium skillet. add the bag of riced cauliflower and sauté until softened to your preference (about 5 minutes for rice-like, IMHO.) set the cauliflower aside in a bowl. add a couple handfuls of bell pepper strips and half the package of tofu, cubed. pour over some teriyaki sauce (I use about 1/3 cup), stir, and let cook until peppers are totally soft, another 3 to 5 minutes. top the riced cauliflower with the teriyaki tofu and peppers. garnish with sesame seeds and red pepper flakes. enjoy!⁣ 🥡

probably my favorite part of parenthood is seeing life through my children’s’ eyes. everything is new and they live a life of exciting discovery. and nothing beats the merriment of Christmastime! 🎄🎅🏻 luca and roma had a blast ice skating today in NYC - luca got the hang of it quickly and he loved pushing roma on the little plastic bear seats they had at @rinkatbrookfieldplacenyc. ⛸❄️ the twins were angels and slept the whole time, so I could be present with my older kids. 👼🏻👼🏻

and we’re building a holiday bucket list calendar, what should we add to it (aside from meeting santa? 😉)

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you
