As a new mom it can be a challenge trying to figure out how to dress your little babe for different ages, seasons, and without breaking the bank. And to be honest, sometimes it can feel like rocket science finding clothing that is on trend, that will fit Connor for more than a few days (ha!), and that is in season. And don’t even get me started on what it’s like buying sizes for her to grow in to! I’m still face palming thinking of all the cute items I purchased while I was pregnant that she hardly got to wear! *Insert hysterical emoji here* But now that Connor is almost two, I have finally gotten the hang of shopping for her growing frame. And Carter’s has become one of my favorite one-stop shops for all of the essentials! Here’s a peak into how I have started creating her fab fall wardrobe with Carter’s. And a list of 10 things parents need for their baby girl or toddler girls fall wardrobe.
#1. The Original Carters Bodysuit: You can never go wrong with a good bodysuit! And I love that Carter’s has so many different colors, styles, and sizes to choose from. Carters’ Original Bodysuit is perfect for Connor to wear around the house on warmer days or underneath her clothes on chilly days. And I am so happy I listened to the friend who told me that this is pretty much all she’d need during the first couple of months of life!

#2. Carters Jeans/ Denim Leggings: Jeans are another staple item in Connor’s closet all year around. And although she just started wearing “real jeans” lol! denim style leggings are also a favorite of ours. I like that Carter’s has a dark “wash” legging that pairs well with everything. Throughout her infant stages ’till now, denim leggings have been so awesome because she can move and play freely in them.
#3. Denim Jacket: Good layering pieces are also essential for fall, especially in California. We seldom have super cold days, so a denim jacket paired with long-sleeved shirts usually will do all fall long. And I’m a firm believer that no matter what age you are, you can’t go wrong with a great denim jacket. Connor can throw this denim jacket on or off at a moment’s notice and it is easy to store in a diaper bag or small tote! A denim jacket is simple addition to her closet, but keeps Connor looking super stylish too!
#4. Statement Prints & Lacy Tops: One of my favorite things to do with Connor’s outfits is to play with prints, colors, and textures. There are virtually no rules with baby/toddler clothes, so it’s fun to be a bit playful! And Carter’s has some beautiful statement print tops in their fall 2016 collection right now. One of them is this blue-trimmed, paisley print top. I also couldn’t get over this adorable purple, lace, cotton top!
#5. Play shoes: Of course, a girl’s gotta’ have a comfortable play shoe too! And while I’m not a fan of super frilly looking shoes, Carter’s won me over with their adorable little booties and these blue shoes with the perfect sized bow! It’s kind of like a modern “baby-doll” shoe! So cute!
#6. Camel boots: Okay! So I’m slightly obsessed with camel/cognac colored everything! And I couldn’t believe that I found this adorable pair of boots at Carters in Connor’s size! I’m looking forward to pairing them with some cute leggings or even a cute, little skirt or dress.
#7. Thick Knit Sweaters: Another trend I am so happy to see back this fall season is thick knit sweaters! And I seriously couldn’t resist this boho style Carter’s sweater for Connor! Hashtag Toddler Style Goals Realized! — This one will for sure be on repeat this fall!
#8. Lacy Skirt: Because California tends to have warmer fall weather, I also wasn’t afraid to pick out this pretty, little, lacy blue skirt! It’s perfect for church or a little holiday party fun. And if needed, it can be worn with leggings.
#9. Faux Fur Vest: Another way that I keep Connor looking super fab in the fall is with a good, faux fur vest! And I am so happy to see that they are back this year! The faux fur vest is a statement piece that can be thrown over a bodysuit or with a printed top. Either way, your little one will be looking so chic!
#10. Fun Headbands: And last, but certainly not least, I picked up a couple of boho style headbands! When done modestly, floral crown inspired headbands & Aztec style prints can still be worn throughout the fall to add a hint of girly-ness. Every girl needs a signature accessory and headbands are definitely Connor’s!
Such a fab start right?! I’m so looking forward to this fall season and all of the endless outfit combos that Connor and I can create with these essential fall wardrobe pieces from Carter’s.
