So I just realized that I didn't even get a good shot of the outfit. Either way, it was one piece with polka dots and a little giraffe that said "I love hugs".
The problem is that when I bought Jade's outfit, I thought everything in the baby section was cute. I am no longer under that impression. I rarely buy anything with words on it and am sick of most zoo animals. I like cute prints, don't get me wrong. I'm just pickier now, that's all.
Which has not been a problem... until now. Four days ago, I started looking for a coming home outfit for baby sister. Three days ago I realized that it was going to be very hard to find one. Two days ago, I found something I liked... for $70. So I decided to let you guys help me decide.
Before I give you the options, I'm going to share my criteria:
1. Either one piece or a onesie with pants... I don't want a shirt that doesn't snap at the bottom because it'll just ride up on such a teeny baby.
2. Soft colors. Generally, I go for bright things on a baby, but I really want something pastel for the coming home outfit.
3. No huge designs. I really don't want a huge heart or elephant or anything on the middle. Smaller prints are fine, as long as it's not some animal.
4. Coming with a hat is a bonus, but not necessary. We have some cute knit hats from when Jade was born, and one of them will probably match.
Are you thinking that I'm too picky? Maybe I am. Oh well. So here goes:
I basically love everything about this outfit but the price. It's $70. Really? I just can't see spending that much on something the kid will wear once maybe twice. But it meets all of my criteria...
This? Is super sweet. The price is right (on sale for $16.80), but can you imagine putting tights on a newborn? I can. And it's not a fun picture. And I wouldn't want to let her go without because it'll probably be pretty cool out and Baby Sister will need her legs to be warm. So yeah, that's my biggest hesitation with this one.
I'm just not sold on this one. I like it, but I don't think it's right for a coming home outfit. I think the biggest thing is the bright purple skirt. If it was lavender, I think it's like it more. I just don't like the dark color.
This is probably my second choice. My beef with it? It just doesn't seem special enough. Yes, I know, that makes no sense. I guess it just seems too simple.
So there ya have it, folks. The 4 options. Help me decide please? There is a clicky poll on my homepage to the left. It'll be open until 24 Sep. I'm even gonna let Chuck vote ;)
