alex's snowsuit & boots arrived at my doorstep on monday. when i got home i was simply silly over the Nordstrom box- silly i say!
however my kid was not in the mood to play dress up so i waited until the husband got home to stuff her in the new threads.
i would have taken a picture- but all she did was sort of stand there like a winter dressed blob. she can't really walk in the boots & the snowsuit is a bit on the larger size (even though it's only 12 month size)
she looked adorable though- so i think i'll make her put them on again & snap some shots. she thought the suit was hilarious & kept falling down & rolling around. thank God i decided not to go with the simply precious WHITE snowsuit from babyGap- that would have been a waste.
but here's what i did go with:
Patagonia Reversible Bunting
Patagonia is supposed to be the "king" of outdoorwear- so i sucked it up & dished out the $$$ for a good quality snowsuit that she can wear all winter & that her sister can wear next year.
i went with green because, hello- we like green! plus it's reversible so it's like having 2 suits- right? it may look boyish online- but it's really very unisex in my opinion- it's a really pretty green too!
i went with the 12 month size over the 18 month size & i'm glad i did because the 12 month size is a bit large still. so she should be comfy all winter.
plus- it's not a super puffy suit. it seems warm & cozy- but also breathable. i approve!
Kamik 'Snowbug' Waterproof Boots
i went with Kamik because they're awesome. cute, waterproof, comfy- etc etc. and i'm not usually big on purple- but they go so well with the green suit that it was a win over the pink, black or blue ones.
alex is currently a size 4, and these start at a size 5- so i grabbed a 5. they're big- but it's ok. thick socks & fluffy snow to fall in = A-Ok. she'll be able to wear them all winter & into the early spring. and next year- hopefully baby#2 will be able to do the same!
so there you go. our winter gear!
now if i can figure out how to make her keep her mittens on, we'll be golden.
i think i'm going to have to invest in some that have super long arm bands- because my kid freaking loathes her mittens.
the hat? she deals. mittens? hell no.
