Big Baby Shower – Day 18
After four children I have come to accept that you can’t keep every little baby item, even if you know you may add to the family later on. Obviously I have kept my fair shares of sentimental pieces (possibly more than needed) but I have had to say goodbye to some bits too. One thing most parent (including myself) seem to hold on to for eternity is their baby’s first pair of shoes, I bet my parents still have my first shoes too! If you’re looking for a special pair for your new arrival look no further than Tiptoe & Co:
Tiptoe & Co stocks a fantastic selection of children’s footwear brands like Little Blue Lamb, Rileyroos, Freycoo, Umi and more, with sizes starting at a tiny AU 2.5 all the way up to AU 13.
One of my favourite little girl shoes in store is this pretty flower sandal called Amalie (RRP $30.95, size 6m-18m). The neutral white colour is easy to mix and match with other colours and it would be the ideal finishing touch to a christening or wedding outfit. Made from soft cow leather these babies are comfortable to wear and the velcro closure make them easy to put on and take off.
For the boys (but perfectly suitable for girls too!) my top pick would have to be the classic leather Pre-Walker Riding Boot (RRP $38.95, size Small – Large) by Australian footwear label Skeanie. I love the timeless design and being an ankle boot it will keep the chill out during this colder season. Size medium and large feature rubber anti-slip patches on the sole to help keep baby safe as he/she takes those first wobbly steps.
Moving up from the soft soles there are plenty of lovely styles available with flexible rubber soles, a great choice for toddlers who have just started to walk. Little girls will love these sweet Poppy Mary-Janes (RRP $30.95, size 5-8) with their colourful flower detail and they can practise putting their own shoes on with the simple velcro strap. Add to that the funky squeakers (which are removable for your own sanity) and you can see why these shoes are such a hit.
