Ok, so I’ve been trying to get this post out for at least a week now, but I’ve been super distracted. Things are moving ever so slowly on the house buying front, and I’ve had it with this crazy holding pattern that we’re in. I need to know, and I need to know now! Mostly, I need to know if I can start packing yet…Things have ground to a halt while I wait to see if I should start filling boxes or not, and one of those things is the never-ending rotation of baby clothes. Any baby clothes smaller then 12 months goes through this crazy cycle of waiting for it to fit, wear it once and then its too small so you donate it and move on.
** Just a little update, this post now includes affiliate links, but was originally written before I had a relationship with the company and I wasn't compensated for any of the services or products discussed below.**
Luckily, I really hit the hand-me-down jackpot with this baby, which means that I can spend all of that money on silly over-priced shoes and frilly little outfits. So when I found Mac & Mia, a service that offers to ship you a box of baby clothes picked out by a stylist I couldn't resist. I was so impressed with the my stylist, not only is there a questionnaire when you sign up to help determine the style your looking for, but I was assigned an actual stylist who contacted me by email to further discuss what I was looking for and followed me on Instagram so she could get a better idea of how I was currently dressing the baby.
You can get a better idea of how the service works from their site here. All of the pieces that were sent to me were beautiful, well-made and that being said they did run a little on the expensive side around an average of $40 each. I ended up returning a few of the pieces mostly because Charlie already had something similar. For me this is just a little too expensive to do on a regular basis, but I will definitely consider it again during the next big growth spurt. If you’re a really busy mom who loves to put beautiful clothes on their kid but doesn't have the time to shop around then I would really recommend this service. They will also shop for an occasion, so if you’re looking to splurge on a special birthday or holiday like Christmas or Easter, but picking out baby outfits isn't your thing let one of Mac & Mia’s stylists handle it for you.
