This post is a little off topic, since this is not a fashion blog, and since half my clothing comes from second-hand stores! When it comes to my own wardrobe, I would not describe it as “trendy” at all. Although I may have a few trendy pieces hanging in my closet, I generally opt for items that are a bit more classic, so that I can get lots of wear out of them without worrying about them going out of style.
Overall, I maintain that same strategy with Bonnie’s wardrobe too, but we’ve gotten her a few pieces that are trendy, and “in” right now (enough to mix and match and make PLENTY of outfits with) and I am absolutely loving the results.
So here are some of my favorite baby fashion trends this season:
1) Knit sweaters: We bought this cardigan for Bonnie and it is so sweet!
(You can find it here.)
2) Tutus: There’s definitely an age limit on these things. In other words, this tutu, although adorable on a 4 month old, would not be adorable on a 14 year old. But for babies? YES!
And, pairing a tutu with a knit sweater = perfection, and a great church outfit for fall!
(Find this tutu here.)
3) Woodland creatures: This is one of my favorite trends. Even owls have grown on me, and I was not so crazy about them when they first started making their appearance.

4) Puffy vests, and vests in general:
(Find this entire outfit here… one of my favorite stores, and then run great sales if you can catch them at the right time!)

When it comes to baby clothes, I maintain the same philosophy that I adhere to for grown-up clothes: LESS is best. This is even more true for babies because, as we all know, they grow so quickly! Just like with grown-up clothes, if you buy a few versatile pieces, you can come up with so many different outfits simply by mixing and matching!
And it’s so fun to at least window shop, if nothing else. (:
