I am all about being frugal & fashionable. That transitions when it’s time for me to buy my kids’ clothes. I’m a thrift-aholic & I almost never buy full price. However, there can be a benefit to buying a couple of really quality, full-priced items & I know that. Matilda Jane clothing is superb quality & just darling. I love MJ pieces because each piece is really easy to mix & match with. I’m a mix & match queen, so it’s such an easy fit for Evie’s wardrobe. I wanted to share how I stretched our wardrobe & how I took two MJ pieces/one outfit & implemented it with Evie’s current wardrobe for six new looks. I wasn’t even trying that hard & I created six, y’all. Imagine the possibilities if you really sit down & mix & match!
The pieces I have are the Limelight Peasant Top & the Pointillism Big Ruffles pants. They go wonderfully together. The ruffles on the peasant top are made from the same fabric from the pants. It’s a really fun & funky look. Boom, look number one.
Look number two: I paired the peasant top with baby jeggings. It made the look a little more casual. Add in a pair of baby moccs & a simple flower power clippie & you have the sweetest bohemian baby on the block!
In the desert, it’s still fairly warm, so for look three I wanted something that would keep Miss E cool. Add a jean skirt (with short inserts) & a fun pair of baby boots for a lighter look, but still warm-ish for fall breeze that may come your way. Keep hair simple with a purple clippie so the outfit can stand on it’s own.
For a quick & easy look four, toss on some baby leg warmers! These deep purple ones matched the original pants & add a little extra warmth for a cool fall day.
For look five, I added a fun boho top that had a few purple embroidered flowers on it to pick up the color of the pants. The yellow polka dot bow matches the yellow polka dots in the pants as well. We added in our trusty baby moccs & had another easy peasy bohemiam look.
Look six is simple & so comfy. I can just picture Evie wearing this during a rainy fall day. A simple white tee with flowy sleeves that mimic the ruffles on the pants, a polka dot mustard bow, & moccs are relaxed, snuggly, & effortless.
How do you stretch your baby’s wardrobe? What’s your favorite baby fashionista piece in your kid’s wardrobe? Share with me in the comments!
