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.

1st birthday: wilderness outfits

mk-outfits-5-version-2Choosing family outfits for Remy’s Moonrise Kingdom birthday party has not been easy. I have been going back and forth on what we should wear. Should we dress up as the characters in the film? Geoffrey would be in a khaki scout costume, me in a schoolgirl outfit, and Remy in an island police uniform.

Or should we wear our regular clothes, but stick to the warmer tones that are complementary to the film’s vintage colour palette? Outfits that are also wilderness-inspired? In the end, I decided to go with the latter.

mk-outfits-4Remy is wearing her checked dress from Zara, black tights from Carter’s, and Elk moccasins from Minimoc. I am wearing a brown romper from Threadsence and black tights. Geoffrey has on a plaid shirt and Lucky Brand jeans.

Because we are hiring a photographer, I wanted the photographs to be reminiscent of a themed birthday and not a Halloween party. While I still may alter our outfits before the big day, these are very similar to what we will be wearing as a family.

Less than one week to go! Happy Family Day, Canadians.

what i bought: zara

zara-baby-1zara-baby-2Remy is at a stage where she is currently in between sizes. In being a somewhat smaller baby, she is always right on track for her age and clothing. When she was 2 months, she was wearing 0-3 month clothes. At 5 months, it was 3-6 month, and 8 months was 6-12 months. You get the picture. Now that she is 10 months, she is slightly too big for 6-12 month but not quite big enough for 12-18 month clothes.

zara-baby-4I’ve recently purged Remy’s closet and now am left with only a few items. I started ordering a few pieces online, hoping that they will fit her. These socks and this dress from Zara are included in my purchases.

zara-baby-5The dress is actually one that she will be wearing for her 1st birthday. I’m planning a big soiree for her, and will reveal all to you at the beginning of next month. The theme is near and dear to my heart, just like my little girl.

zara-baby-7Have a wonderful weekend!
