Now that Essley is no longer a newborn and her days of living in nothing but zip-up sleepers are in the past, it's becoming more and more fun to get her dressed each morning. And with the great weather we've (finally!) been having, there's been a shift from her wearing mostly onesies/legging combos to summertime dresses. Over Memorial Day weekend we stopped in at H&M Kids while visiting my sister in Indianapolis and scored a few of the cutest little baby dresses ever (including #1 above). I have a feeling this will be the summer of dresses for Essley; I plan to scoop up several more, including a couple of the ones you see above. I'm also hoping to find a few gems at kids resale shops, which are truly the goldmines of thrift stores. (One good thing about babies growing so quickly is that there isn't enough time for them to really wear out their clothing. Thrifted pieces tend to be in pristine condition.)
Are there any other great brands (especially small/independent ones) that I should check out for baby dresses? Which is your favorite from my picks above?
