Gap Chambray Romper (12 months-5 years)
£15.99 (was £19.95) SHOP NOW
Another thing for Tabitha’s Summer shopping list. I love a romper, and so does she. Layer a pretty Liberty print blouse underneath, such as this Cyrillus one or this one from Trotters. Super-cute and super-practical.
Little Bird By Jools Gingham Romper (0-12 months)
This adorable classic style baby romper is so, so sweet. It could have come from an antique clothing shop. I love the retro gingham fabric, and the cute (and comfortable) bubble shape. And I always love a bit of smocking. Tabitha had a similar one when she was a baby (a gorgeous ladybird printed one from Gap), which I absolutely loved her in. They look great with a pair of simple sandals and a little cotton cardigan if it gets chilly. And this one is 100% cotton, which is always a good thing. Love.
Alice à Paris Knitted Baby All-In-One (3-6 months)
Alice a Paris is still quite a new discovery for me. Gorgeous, simple, French clothes for babies and toddlers at really great prices. I love that they only have quite a small selection of styles, but they all come in various colours and fabrics. Perfect. How chic is this knitted all-in-one? Love the ties at the side. The perfect ‘don’t know what I’m/they’re having’ pre-baby purchase/gift.
Stella McCartney Kids Romper (1-24 months)
There are still some great bargains around in the sales, and this is most definitely one of them. I tend to steer clear of designer kids’ clothes normally (for all the reasons I mention on the site in ‘about’), but come sale time, it’s a whole different story. Stella Kids always have a great sale, and I have fallen head over heels in love with this romper. It’s just so pretty (and at the risk of sounding like a broken record, you all know how much I love a romper!). Again, sadly Tabs is too big for it now, but for all little girls out there under two, you definitely need this gem in your wardrobe. It would look super-cute with the Boden yellow sandals. Do bear in mind though that Stella’s sizes come up quite tiny, so I would definitely size-up to be safe. So what are you waiting for? If Tabs can’t have it, I would at least like one of your daughters/granddaughters/nieces/goddaughters to!

No Added Sugar Eden Romper (3 months-2 years)
I love this. As you know by now, I am a big fan of the romper/playsuit (call it what you will). They always just look so effortlessly cute. They are great for layering under other things, but personally I just love them worn on their own with sandals on a sunny Summer day. And they don’t come much prettier than this.
Gap Chambray Bubble Romper (0-24 months)
I love any kind of all-in-one/playsuit/romper for baby girls. They always look super-cute, but are always super-practical too. They keep your little one ‘together’, so that they can crawl/run around without losing bits of their outfit as they go. And I always love anything in chambray because it feels/looks a bit more special than regular denim, but still has the same casual, laid-back feel. This one has poppers around the legs, so nappy changes are quick and easy. I love the oversized bows on the shoulders and the pretty embroidery at the neck. Just pop a Breton striped long sleeved t-shirt underneath if it feels a bit bare and breezy. It would look great with sandals, such as the John Lewis white cut-out ones or the Jo Jo Maman Bebe floral ones that I have featured in previous posts.
