Since Maya turned 6 months a few days ago I can’t stop looking at pictures since she was a newborn and compare how much she has changed. When she was three months old I took a few pictures of her in a park dressed in my favourite striped body suite from Gap paired with the cutest mint baby denim trousers, also from Gap. She has long outgrown both!
But how cute she looks in this pink denim trousers and dotted denim shirt! Guess what, also from Gap! This, now, is my favourite baby outfit! And just how cute is a baby in jeans? I mean with front and back pockets, and zip element, and everything?
I recently had to pleasure to meet a lovely girl, Magdalena Vque of Walk Unique, who makes beautiful baby shoes and moccasins. She needed a baby model and a photographer enthusiasts, both of which I was able to offer: Maya as the baby photographer and myself as the enthusiast. She needed new photographs of her lovely shoes and as I love styling and photographing, I happily agreed to help her. We met at Hammersmith riverside which is one of my favourite London locations in the summer. And we spent a few hours taking pictures. I am not a professional stylist or photographer but I think I did well. Magdalena is pretty good at that herself so I think we ended up with some beautiful shots.
Walk Unique moccasins are made of soft real leather and are designed and hand crafted by Magdalena in her London flat. She sells them on Etsy as well as a number of other online portals.
As a strong supporter of the handmade I urge you to check Magdalena’s shop and like Walk Unique on Facebook.
I recently found the lovely online shop Poppy Children. They sell beautiful border print dresses for little girls and women. They design their own fabric to make their exciting collections. I totally fell in love with their Make a Wish collection of dresses. Take a look and see for yourself why.
GAP is a fashion brand that I like a lot. And their kids section has been a favourite for a while as I am lucky to still fit into some of their kids clothes. Since Maya was born I visit their baby and kids sections a lot more often. And I absolutely love their baby clothes. They are cute and pretty and at very affordable prices, especially if there is a sale on. Maya already has a few GAP pieces like this super cute striped bodysuit.
My lovely Maya is now the size of a newborn! She is two months old! Poor thing. She was the tiniest baby in the hospital, so small to fit in even in the tiniest of baby clothes. But it looks like I now can plan to dress her up when we go out. Not that we can go out in the cold and wet weather that is in London, but still.
I am well known for my weakness for doted and striped pattern clothes. Expectedly baby clothes have followed the trend.
Here are some photos I managed to take of her in one of my favourite dotted outfits. Clothes are a gift from a lovely friend of mine!
