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!

went for a nice long walk outside with the kids (we haven’t been able to do that for a while, because it’s just been so freezing and/or snowing) 🥶 and then we decided to pick up some to-go sandwiches and while we waited, the kids had some banana bread and juice 🍊🍌🍞 luca said, “mama I want to stay here alllll day!” which made me feel sad, because we haven’t felt comfortable dining indoors yet, and I’m sure he misses the people watching at restaurants on the weekends 😔 it’s okay, I’m just filing this under “things we get to look forward to when it’s safe again” 💋 #jerseycity ...

a year and 5 days ago, I started @invisalign to correct my cross bite and fix some crowding on my lower teeth. 👄🦷 a few weeks into treatment, my dentist gave me some extra aligners (the clear trays that you wear that miraculously shift your teeth) “just in case” the Corona virus came to the US and the office has to shutdown. well, a LOT has happened in this past year (my teeth and bite have corrected and Corona certainly made its way here!) and today was the final appointment to perfect my teeth and bite with some veneers (which I haven’t quite gotten used to yet, but all of the stories you shared and kind compliments you gave in my DMs has made me feel A LOT better.) 😬⁣

in two weeks, I get my overnight retainers, which I’ll wear forever (but only to sleep.) aside from that, I’m done with #invisalign and it feels SO good. I cannot believe how drastically it has changed my face, and when I watch myself talk in a video or look at a photo of myself, I no longer cringe at my lisp or how crooked my face looks. it wasn’t something I was self-conscious of every day, but it’s definitely something that I noticed when looking at photos and it secretly bothered me. it’s silly, but it did! ⁣

now I can proudly say that I love my smile, and I feel more confident than ever. it’s a shame I’ll have to wear a mask and cover up this expensive smile 😂😂😂😂 but hopefully in 2022, I’ll be able to fully whip it out. right?!! 🤞🏼💉 ⁣

I’m going to write a blog post all about the process, share a ton of before and afters, but I wanted to ask.... are there any questions you have specifically that you’d like me to include/address? leave a comment below and let me know! and in the meantime, you can check out my Invisalign highlight for the whole journey!
