zara haul

With small children, the turn of the season usually means an almost entirely new wardrobe. Remy is nowhere near fitting into last year’s spring and summer clothes. At age 2 and wearing 3T, I didn’t have one item of clothing that she could wear on days that were above 0!

This year, I decided to not only buy a few pieces from Zara, but to buy her entire wardrobe from there. I wasn’t feeling very well when she needed clothes for warmer weather, and really didn’t feel like zipping around the city in search of cute wears. Zara had free expedited shipping (and free returns), so I really couldn’t say no to that!

Here are some of Remy’s new clothes:

1. Embroidered Dungarees

2. Jersey Two Piece Set

3. Anchor Striped Swimsuit

4. Smiley Face Parka

5. Checked Jumpsuit

6. Floral Jumpsuit

7. T-shirt with Ruffles

8. Ruffled Trousers

9. Jacquard Dress

10. Triangle Print Leggings

11. Linen Bermuda Shorts

12. Frilled Sleeve Dress

13. Leather Boots (I also bought a checked shoe- as seen in the photos- but cannot find them on the website! These I purchased later, and Remy likes them a lot more.)

What are your favourite stores to shop at for children’s items?

etsy: items i love

Mother’s Day is exactly one month from today! I actually got my act together in time to publish items that I love well in advance, just in case a certain someone might need a hint or two as to what to buy me. Who am I kidding? He probably won’t see this post. ;-)))

Nonetheless, it’s always great to browse Etsy now and again in search of cute items. Here are some that I would love for this upcoming holiday:

1. Smokey Quartz Studs by ElfiRoose.

2. Air Plant Hanger by GolemDesigns.

3. Solstice Dress by folkstead.

4. Really anything from CattailsWoodwork.

What are you hoping to get or do for Mother’s Day this year?

what i bought: toddler tights

Do any other parents of little girls (or boys) love tights? I can’t get enough of them. Not only are they adorable, they are so practical as well. If I put Remy in socks and bottoms, she will usually find a way to take her socks off. With tights, she will leave them alone. It’s a win for both of us.

Normally I find that they are so expensive. What I usually end up doing is buying her thicker tights from the dollar store, of all places! Instead of spending over $20, I only spend a few. They tend to last a year, even with wearing them daily. The only downside is that they come in solid colours.

A few weeks ago, I ended up splurging on animal pattern tights from Amazon. I received a pack of three in the mail a few days after purchasing them. Guys, they are too cute! I chose green horses, beige pandas, and mustard yellow. They are 2T-3T, so they will hopefully last for quite awhile. Remy has already worn them quite a few times. I just love them!

Please excuse the state of our home. The pictures were taken when we were renovating our living room. We have since completed it, and I will be revealing the living room makeover to you in a few weeks!

zara baby haul

I think that I mentioned this before, but Remy has always been bang on with clothing sizes. When she was less than 3 months, she was in newborn and then 0-3 month clothing. As a 4 month old, she was wearing 3-6 month clothes, at 7 months she was in 6-12, and so on. Right around her one year birthday, she had outgrown all of her clothes. She desperately needed a new wardrobe, so I logged on to one of my favourite websites for baby clothes; Zara.

I was fortunate in that ordering her so many pieces aligned with spring being just around the corner. This meant that I could finally pick out lighter clothes. Hello, short sleeves, shorts, and spring jackets!

What Remy ended up getting was the Embroidered T-Shirt, the Sequinned Balloons T-Shirt, the Watercolour Striped T-Shirt (which is actually for boys, but is just so cute), the Loose-Fit Jumpsuit, the Openwork Bermuda Shorts, the Extra Long Leggings (again for boys), and the Hooded Trench Coat which I didn’t take a photo of but is to die for!

She looks so adorable in all of her clothes. Zara also fits wide, which is great for our little chubbins! With only $5 shipping, it is always my go-to store.
