Where I Shop for Maxi’s Clothes

Seersucker Swimsuit | Gator Bubble | Nursery Tour | Photography by: Angie Garcia

This weekend we did the dreaded task of going through all of Maxi’s clothing. I find I do it about every 4 months or so, and each time I get so sad to see how big she has gotten. Truthfully, I’m saving most everything. Is that what y’all do?! I’ve donated a few things, but watch me be the mom with 40 Container Store tubs in her attic one day. I’m a purger in everything other area in life, just not my baby’s clothing. I guess that’s how it starts for most women, right?! ha. Don’t Konmari me when it comes to my baby.

We ran to the mall to get her some new pajamas and I realized that I do buy most of her clothing online. Of course, I love a good Target or Old Navy run for sweet onesies, pajamas and play clothing. However, I thought it would be fun to make a post with a few of my favorite resources to get her more dressy pieces. I’m all for a smocked outfit, so a lot of these shops have smocked and monogrammed bubbles galore. They also carry sweet little boy clothing, of course, I just pulled the pieces I’ve purchased for Maxi as an example.

If you’re just browsing for a baby shower gift idea, don’t miss this post!

Dresses and Smocked Clothing

Smocked Auctions

Smocked Auctions is a precious online shop and I get a lot of her bubbles from there! Right now they have a beach sale going on until June 18th.

Beaufort Bonnet Co.

Maxi lived in Beaufort Bonnet as a newborn, they have the sweetest little newborn gowns. I love their pieces for holidays or church. They also have great newborn gifts and I love to get their cardigans for Maxi in the fall. P.S. I find their pajamas and dresses run a little bit small!

Cecil & Lou

Another must-follow smocked company! Make note a lot of their items are pre-order, so just check for that with shipping and sizing.

Little English

Lots of classic children’s clothing that make a wonderful baby shower gift.

Play Clothing


I love all the options for leggings and casual outfits for babies! The only comment I would make is that I find their children’s clothing to sell out really fast, so if you want to order I wouldn’t wait.


Pink Elephant Organics

They make such soft pajamas that are extremely durable! I’ve noticed that the knees don’t fade even with a little one crawling all day long in them.

Kickee Pants

Every mama loves a good pair of Kickee Pants! Maxi lived in Kickee Pants until she was 3 months.


Freshly Picked

Freshly Picked is one of the only brands that really fits her foot, she still doesn’t size too well with buckled shoes. I love that these mocassins can be dressed up or down!


As her hair has grown, we’ve gone through different bow brands that will work for her. Here’s a mix of what we have used throughout the past 16 months!


If you find yourself in Fort Worth or Dallas for a day, be sure to check out some of my favorites!

Baby by Design

This boutique is on Camp Bowie and next to a few other favorites like Beehive and Kay’s Hallmark. I make every excuse to go to Baby by Design. Birthday party gift? Need to go. Pajamas? Need to go. Driving down Camp Bowie to pick up dry cleaning? Need to go. They have the best selection of Kickee Pants, too! They also have a gorgeous selection of nursery furnishings. After you shop here, be sure to drive down to Blue Bonnet Bakery and grab a donut or cookie!

Babies on the Boulevard

Babies on the Boulevard is the baby gifting boutique of FW. They monogram, carry Beaufort Bonnet and have all the collegiate smocked looks you could ever want to gift. Right when I found out I was pregnant I would go weekly until I knew the gender!

Jojo Mommy

If you’re in Dallas, head to Lovers Lane and pop in Jojo Mommy. It’s carried at Madre Dallas so you will have plenty to browse.

The Tot

I always pop in their Highland Park Village location for gifts. If you are unsure if a mom would want something monogrammed or smocked, you can guarantee she’ll love anything from The Tot. They have a lot of non-toxic toys as well that you’ll want to check out.


Truthfully, as I type this all out I’m sure I’m missing a few shops here or there. Can I blame toddler brain or is that not allowed? If I remember or find some more I’ll be sure to go back and add! Where are your favorite spots to get items for your children? I’d love to look!

    My mom has saved every piece of my baby clothes up in the attic (in a million plastic bins like you said! haha). It wasn’t until a couple weeks ago that she brought it all down to start going through; washing it all and deciding what to donate, what to keep, and what to cut up to put in a baby quilt for my future babies. I’m 28 and an only child, so she’s held on to this stuff for years! It’s amazing to see how much looks brand new and was likely only worn once or twice.

  2. Can’t get enough of the cute little clothes! I can imagine myself splurging so much when I start a family in the future!

      I seriously ALWAYS think the Target boy clothes are darling!! Maybe I’m tempted by them because I don’t have a boy?! haha! xo, Katey

    I saved everything from my first daughter and I glad I did since I had two more girls right after! I am now giving it all away (except for special items) to a mom in my area who is a little down on her luck. It makes me feel good to know my little girl’s stuff is going to someone who will appreciate it!

      That makes me feel SO good you had more girls! We would *LOVE* two more babies and everyone keeps telling me the wives tale is if you save everything, you get the opposite gender. If you toss the stuff you get the same. I’m like, “I would die for a little boy, but can we also use these clothes again?!” lol! And I love that you donated once you were finished- that’s the best use of them! <3 xo, Katey

    My mom smocked and sewed the majority of my clothes and saved them all. Now that I have a little girl on the way, she has a built in wardrobe of clothes I wore. I love the sentimental value of that! Also, another great shop to check out is https://ellifox.com . She carries the sweetest items with the most beautiful custom embroideries and monograms.

      That’s amazing she had that talent! I love how sweet it is your little girl can wear those pieces. Thank you so much for that new shop, I have never heard of it and will have to get a few things! 🙂 xo, Katey

  9. I LOVE THIS! Thanks so much for putting all of this together! I will need to check out all of these for my little!

    I recently just started a children’s clothing company called Declan Roe (www.declanroe.com) We focus on giving people the best deal on the internet for a cute, variety of children’s clothing! We also donate 15% of our profit to families struggling with infertility. I would love to hear your feedback on it. I would be interested in a collab as well! Let me know what you think!

    I saved EVERYTHING from my first girl – thankfully. Her little sister was born 14 months later. 🙂

    We are done with two, so I sell some stuff on Kidizen (then turn around and buy more from other mamas…) and pass along the rest to my SIL who has a little girl 7 months younger. We also have hand me downs from other cousins, so it’s fun to be able to see pictures of nieces wearing the same things my girls are now wearing. A lot of the hand me down pieces are play clothes, but still so nice to have!
