Mail Call: IMA Baby

A few days ago we received our shirt from IMA Baby.

A special thanks to Ondria from Momma’s Block Party for hosting the giveaway and IMA Baby for providing the prize.

They have an adorable selection of many styles for your baby or toddler.

They carry:

Infant Lap Bodysuit
Infant Short Sleeve Tee
Infant Long Sleeve Tee
Infant Organic Lap Bodysuit
Infant Long Sleeve Sleeper
Organic Bib
Toddler Short Sleeve Tee
Toddler Ringer Style Tee
Toddler Long Sleeve Tee
Toddler Ruffle Dress

One excellent thing about IMA Baby Brand is that they “use a special eco-friendly printing technique which dyes the design directly into the fabric. This allows for a super-soft garment for baby without any image flaking or roughness, even after multiple washes.” – isn’t that wonderful?

They also mention that their baby and toddler sizes do run small, so that if you are unsure of what size to get, to order up a size.

We chose the “IMA Sweet Pea” long-sleeved Tee for Adelaide since fall is coming, so she could get more wear out of it.

Here is the preview from the website:

And here is Adelaide modelling her new shirt:

IMA is right about the printing, it is soft and feels like a part of the fabric.  We washed this shirt before wear and the cotton (which was quite stiff right out of the packaging) softened right up.  Adelaide has a little room to grow, which is perfect!

Mail Call – Art & Soul Boutique

Today we received a beautiful package from Art & Soul Boutique.

Inside were a dress for me, dress, trousers and a headband for Adelaide.

The headband is from Filigree & Flowers (but sold by Art and Soul)

Have you ever had a matching outfit for you and your child?

Have you ever coordinated purposefully?

No matter how cheesy it may be, I love both the dresses and the accessories, and can’t wait to get some family photos done!

Adelaide looks so beautiful in her dress.

All of the items can be found at Art and Soul Boutique.

A special nod to Filigree & Flowers for the beautiful headband.

Mail Call – Persnickety Clothing

I have a small obsession with Pernickety clothing for my daughter, I would have love to have owned their entire spring/summer collection this year.  I added this sweet little shirt and veiled headband from their 50% off sale.  Here is how fabulous Adelaide looks in them!

Click images for full size view.

We received so many “oohs” and “awwws” about how cute she was today, especially at Sam’s club.

I hope no one faults me for putting her in dressy clothes to go food shopping, however, I have good reason; I feel that she is growing so quickly I want to get the most wear out of these pieces.
