I had the pleasure of working with Baby Beau & Belle last year when I reviewed a beautiful holiday dress for Little Miss.  They offer stunning christening gowns and special occasion wear for babies.  I was truly impressed with the quality and beauty of the outfit I received so I was thrilled to work with them again, this time on a review of one of their sun dresses.

I was sent the Rose Garden Sun Dress.  Designed in house and available only on Babybeauandbelle.com and Christeninggowns.com, this set includes a 100% cotton, light pink dress, flowered bloomers and a matching headband.  It was so pretty!  The colors and style are perfect for spring!  I loved the little details like the shell buttons at the bottom of the straps and on the leg openings of the bloomers.

I put the outfit on Little Miss and told her to go show daddy her new outfit.  She went running in and stood in front of him patting her belly.  He said she looked beautiful and I agreed!  Later, we went for a walk and my neighbor commented on how cute she looked.

The outfit is so soft and is perfect for warm weather.  The elastic is soft as well so it’s not tight around her chest or tummy.  This will be the dress I put her in for her pictures with the Easter Bunny and the one she wears for our church’s egg hunt.  Once again I am thoroughly impressed with the beauty and quality provided by Baby Beau & Belle.

Every outfit from Baby Beau & Belle is handmade in the USA and they are truly luxurious!  Whether you’re looking for a pretty summer dress, or a christening gown or special occasion outfit, Baby Belle and Beau has you covered! Make sure to connect with them on Facebook to see more of their stunning outfits!

One lucky reader will win a $25 credit to either Baby Beau & Belle!

If your kids are like mine then they grow each summer.  Then the clothing you thought they would be wearing no longer fits and you head out to buy some much needed back to school clothing.  One place we love to shop for our kids is P.S. by Aeropostale.  If you recall, I did a review of their clothing earlier this year.   You can read my full P.S. by Aeropostale review here and see some photos of our kids in their clothing.  Before posting this giveaway I visited their website to browse the new arrivals and it looks like P.S. by Aeropostale is keeping their clothing fashionable and modest!  I saw several items that our girls would love.  Their jeans were what really caught my eye as well as some of the scotty dog line up!

Their clothing starts at size 4 so our toddler son is almost big enough for their line.  And for those of you with kids in uniforms…they offer a full line of uniform clothing!
