// 30 Clothing Brands for Baby Girls by Modern Eve

01. Baby Gap :: Baby Gap has some great  basics, as well as, some fun trendy pieces for babies and kids. They fall in the mid-price range, but often have really good sales (30-50% off). The discounts increase if you sign up for and use a Gap credit card for your purchase. Pictured: French Terry One-Piece // Dot Cardigan.

02. Burt’s Bees Baby :: This is a great line of soft, organic basics for baby. I originally discovered the line at Buy Buy Baby and Target. Pictured: Dottie Bee Reversible Jacket.

03. Circo from Target :: A lot of moms shop at Target and they have a wide selection of baby clothing at a great price point. I am not a fan of most of what they carry, but have seen some really cute things from their Circo line. Since it’s a smaller collection, I typically check first online. Pictured: Long-Sleeve Sleep N Play.

04. Egg Baby by Susan Lazar :: This line is available at many local boutiques and also Nordstrom. It’s extremely modern and cute. One of my favorites, for sure. Pictured: Girls Jumper // Yoke Jersey Dress.

05. ever/after :: If you’re looking for an amazingly cute v-neck onesies for your baby, here you go! Too cute. Pictured: Pima V-Neck One-Piece.

06. H&M :: This has been one of my go-to sources to shop for our daughter. They have some of the best prices (especially when things go on sale) and really turn out some cute designs. You’ll have to dig in the store, but it’s worth it. I absolutely love their basics line of onesies and leggings and have found some really cute dresses, rompers and sweaters, too. Pictured: Long-Sleeved Bodysuit // Jersey Dress.

07. Hanna Andersson (exclusive collection also at Serena & Lily:: Hanna Andersson is a cult-favorite for sleepers. I love that they have zippers! This is also where a lot of moms find matching pajamas for the whole family, since they offer a wide variety of sizes. Pictured: Night Night Baby Sleeper // Baby Sleeper from Serena & Lily.

08. Hatley :: I recently discovered Hatley at a local Dallas baby boutique, Baby Bliss. Talk about super soft fabrics! Pictured: Zip Up Romper.

09. J.Crew :: J.Crew launched their new baby collection earlier in 2013 and we’re definitely in love. It’s quite pricey, so we tend to just admire from afar, instead of purchase. But if you’re wanting to splurge, they have a great cashmere collection and feature designs from a lot of my other favorite baby brands. Pictured: Cashmere Baby Cardigan // Chambray Baby Bloomers.

10. Joe Fresh at JCPenney :: This is another one of my go-to lines for baby. JCPenney has amazing sales and coupons, making this collection extremely affordable. They have great, but not boring basics! Pictured: Long-sleeve Heart Shirt // Sweater Legging Pull on Pants.

11. Mamas & Papas :: Mamas & Papas is not really known for their clothing (at least in the US), but I am so glad that I discovered their line. It’s precious! A little on the high side, but great for girly, unique designs. Pictured: Borderie Anglaise Dress // Patterned Long-Sleeve Blouse.

12. Mini Boden :: I love British baby style and Mini Boden does it right. Pictured: Pretty Jersey Dress.

13. Monsoon :: One of my new favorites from the UK, Monsoon has some of the best-quality whimsical special occasion dresses and fancy play clothes that I have ever seen. I am in love with their line and so grateful that we have a store here at the Dallas Galleria. Pictured: Baby Martha Top and Legging Set // Baby Harriet Dress.

14. Nature Baby (also at J.Crew:: Nature Baby does basics right. If you’re tired of pastel pink and blue, check out their line of organic bodysuits, leggings, shorts, booties and hats. Polka dot and stripes lovers, don’t'miss it! Pictured: Short-Sleeve Bodysuit.

15. Noé & Zoë (also at J.Crew:: This line, out of Berlin, is become a blogger favorite. I love their modern designs. Pictured: Long-Sleeve Tee // Pant.

16. Old Navy :: Don’t forget about Old Navy for great prices! They’ve really stepped up their game in last year when it comes to trends and design. Pictured: Floral Print Skinny Jeans // Textured Cardigan.

17. OshKosh B’gosh (also at Kohl’s and JCPenney) :: For a mass-produced line, OshKosh B’gosh is doing it right. I am still not a fan of the “I’m so cute” bodysuits, but if you rifle through the junk, you can find some really great pieces from their collections. It’s readily available at several retailers, which is a huge bonus. Pictured: Woven Checkered Bodysuit // Denim Sleeveless Top.

18. PaigeLauren :: I love this USA-made line of super soft and simply-designed baby clothes, blankets and caps. Seriously, you’ll be jealous of how soft these fabrics are! Pictured: Classic Twofer Dress.

19. Peek Kids Clothing :: I will definitely be shopping here for my little one, especially once she gets older. They have a store here in Dallas at Northpark, but Nordstrom also carries their line. Their styles feel very California-cool / boho chic to me, which of course, I love. Pictured: Baby Nina Skirt // Baby Becca Sweater.

20. Petit Bateau (also at J.Crew:: On the pricey side, but if you love French baby style (which I do), you can’t beat it. Pictured: Tutu Dress.

21. Petunia Pickle Bottom :: Known for their diaper bags, Petunia Pickle Bottom has branched out into layette. I love their fun, modern prints! Pictured: Long Sleeve Bodysuit // Short Sleeve Bodysuit.

22. Rikshaw Design (also at J.Crew:: Rikshaw Design reminds me of an American Liberty London. I love their girly prints, especially when they’re on their ruffled bloomers! Pictured: Ditsy Cap Sleeve Dress // Bloomers.

23. Seed Heritage :: Based in Australia, Seed Heritage carries some beautiful designs with a great aesthetic. I wish their products were more readily available here in the States. Pictured: Party Dress // Chambray Spot Pant.

24. Splendid :: Another great resource for soft and simple basics. Pictured: Stars Bodysuit // Striped Playsuit.

25. Stem Baby from Nordstrom :: One of Nordstrom’s in-house lines, Stem Baby featured eco-stylish essentials in fun colors and classic prints. Pictured: Colorblock Organic Cotton Hooded Cardigan.

26. Tane Organics :: This luxury, designer line of organic infant and baby clothing is super chic. If you’re looking for high-quality, pure natural fibers, this is the best of the best. Pictured: Balloon Onesie.

27. Tea Collection :: I love the Tea Collection’s globally-inspired designs. Not only do I love their products, but I also am totally on-board with their design philosophyPictured: Field of Flowers Ruffle Dress

28. Under the Nile :: All of their products are made from 100% organic Egyptian cotton, but not crazy expensive. Pictured: Short Sleeve Side Snap Undershirt // Long Sleeve Babybody.

29. Zara :: When it comes to price and design, Zara’s baby collection is my go-to resource. They’re designs are modern and simple, but also unique, incorporating fun prints and mixed textures. I’d buy everything if I could. Pictured: Printed Jeans with Lining // Jacket with Front Detail.

30. Zutano :: Known for their bright and wild prints, Zutano makes some great baby essentials. Pictured: Newborn Receiving Gown // Owls Baby Dress.

Baby Registry Guide: Clothing & Accessories

// Modern Baby Registry (8 of 8): Layette by Modern Eve

Today is the final day our our modern Baby Registry Guide! It’s been so fun putting this together and I hope that it continues to serve as a valuable resource for moms-to-be. Preparing for your first child can be overwhelming. You get a lot of advice, both from well-meaning friends and self-promoting advertisers. As I mentioned in my first post, my registry style is very simple and neutral, but I also wanted to find items that were well-made, intentionally designed and, let’s be honest, good looking! I feel great about the items I selected  and have really appreciated some your additional recommendations in the comments.

With this last post, I am sharing clothing and accessories must-haves for your newborn. Undoubtedly, you will receive a lot of clothes as gifts for your little one. But, it’s not always what you need or prefer. I recommend putting some simple basics on your gift registry that will help you get through those first couple months.

And because these are just the basics, make sure to check back later today for my 30 Favorite Clothing Brands for Baby Girls post!

01. Take Home Outfit. Qty: 1. A simple top and bottom outfit will be perfect to bring baby home from the hospital for the first time. Find something special that you love and might want to put in baby’s keepsake box. Nordstrom Baby Top and Pants, $21 on sale.

02. Hat. Qty: 2. Heat can easily escape from your baby’s head. A simple cap can help your little one regulate their body temperature. Kushies Baby Cap on Amazon, $9.

03. Mittens. Qty: 2. Since you can’t really give a baby a manicure (they’re nails are actually attached to the skin at birth), use mittens to keep them from scratching themselves. Guava Kids Mittens on Amazon, $12.50.

I also have these: Kushies No-Scratch Mittens on Amazon, $5 for two.

04. Sleepers. Qty: 6+. There are a lot of options when it comes to sleepwear for babies. And the truth is, your newborn will probably be living in this type of apparel most of the time. Some moms love the receiving gowns, like this one from Zutano. They make diaper changes a breeze, but some babies start to kick out of them one they’re older. Personally, I prefer zippered sleepers to the more readily available snap versions, but I’ve heard that some moms do not like having to remove their child’s arms for diaper changes. Also, while footed pajamas are nice, long babies can outgrow them much faster. Hanna Andersson Baby Sleeper at Serena & Lily, $28 on sale.

05. Jacket. Qty: 1. Especially if your baby is born in the winter, you’ll want some sort of jacket for those cold days. A nice, neutral knit or fleece cardigan will come in handy. Note: Babies will need as many layers as you do. Cream Cozie Newborn Jacket from Zutano, 21.$26.50.

06. Booties. Qty: 1. I am actually not a big fan of infant shoes. Kids don’t really need shoes until they’re walking, but booties, that help keep their feet warm, are a different story. Moms seem to have a difficult time finding both socks and booties that stay on wiggling baby feet, but I’ve heard rave reviews about these fleece ones! Cream Cozie Newborn Booties from Zutano, $21.

A super cute option: Nature Baby for J.Crew Booties, $17.

07 & 08. Side-Snap Shirts. Qty: 6+. I’ve heard that these simple side-snap shirts can be a lifesaver in the beginning. First, you want to avoid  irritating the umbilical cord until it falls off; and secondly, it can be a little intimidating to yank a bodysuit over a newborn’s head. I stocked up on these long-sleeve and short-sleeve options, both in newborn and 0-3 month sizes. 5-pack short-sleeve side-snap tees from Carter’s, $16 and 4-pack long-sleeve side-snap tees from Carter’s, $16.

09. Bodysuits. Qty: 6+. Basically the baby uniform. You’ll definitely want a lot of these and can find them everywhere. Get a mix of short- and long-sleeve. Favorite Short-Sleeve Bodysuit from Gap, $25 for three.

09. Leggings. Qty: 6+. Match these with bodysuits or side-snap tees. Jersey Leggings from H&M, $6.

09. Socks. Qty: 6. There is little cuter than tiny baby socks. But, not all baby socks are created equal. Lots of moms have trouble finding ones that stay on. These have passed the test and come in some amazingly cute designs. Trumpette Baby Basic Socks on Amazon, $11 for three.

Maternity Style: Draped (37 weeks)

// Maternity Style by Modern Eve with Molly Ades Maternity

We had an unseasonable beautiful day this past weekend here in Dallas and I was so thrilled to get out of the house and enjoy some vitamin D. The countdown has officially begun for baby’s arrival. Hospital bags are packed. Nursery is almost done. Car seat is installed. And I am, well, feeling pretty darn pregnant about now.

Now that I am in the home stretch, I am starting to think, not only about what maternity clothes still fit in these final weeks, but also what I plan on wearing during postpartum, for nursing. I am so glad I was introduced to Molly Ades Maternity, a great line of simple and chic maternity and post-maternity clothing. Not only do I love their styles, but the fabrics are soft and stretchy and the designs are full of smart and well-designed drapes, zippers and pockets that allow for easy access and portability. I have been living in this poncho and also love my zippered nursing tank (I may need to stock up on more than one color).

Baby Registry Guide: Play

// Ultimate Baby Registry Gift Guide (7 of 8): Play by Modern Eve

My official due date is one month from today! Which means my daughter will be here before we know it. As I put together this post, I just can’t help but get giddy about playing with her with all of these fun toys! I’ve really enjoyed compiling this Baby Registry Guide series and these last two installments are definitely my favorite. Today, I am sharing my favorite modern toys for babies and next I’ll be putting together a list of newborn and infant must-have clothing and accessories. I hope you enjoy!

01. Swing. When it came to research for swings and baby bouncers, my list was short. I have been in love with 4mom’s mamaRoo since I first saw it at one of my friend’s houses. Not only is it multi-functional, but it’s also super chic. I honestly don’t mind it sitting out in my living room! 4moms mamaRoo, $240 (also check out their new, rockaRoo, $160, available January 2014.)

02. Teethers. Of course babies love to chew on things, especially once their little teeth start coming in. It’s probably a good idea to have a few of these for different places around the house, your diaper bag, etc. There are a ton of great organic and wood options that I love, but Sophie the Giraffe is an absolutely must-have. I also love Lazare the Cat, from the same company, Vulli. Comotomo Silicone Baby Teether on Amazon, $7, Green Sprouts Natural Wooden Ring Rattle, $15, Sophie the Giraffe on Amazon, $22.

03. Play Gym. A play gym is a great infant must-have toy and there are a ton of options out there. Some are cuter than others, but I just love this wooden option from Plan Toys. Pair it with any old blanket or quilt. Plan Toys Baby Activity Set at AllModern, $63.

More Cute Play Gym Options: Skip Hop Giraffe Safari Activity Gym Toy on Amazon, $64Hape My First Gym on Amazon, $54Plush Activity Play Mat at Giggle, $150Farmyard Activity Gym from Pottery Barn Kids, $69.

And Some Specific for Tummy Time: Skip Hop Tummy Time Mat on Amazon, $35; Infantino Right Angel Tummy Triangle on Amazon, $26Jungle Play Mat at Giggle, $80.

04. Stuffed Animals. Kids seem to acquire a lot of stuffed animals, so don’t be surprised if you start getting these for gifts. If there are some specific ones you absolutely love, feel free to add them to your registry. Blabla Knit Dolls, $44-56.

Other Stuffed Animals I Love: Jelly Cat Leonardo Lion on Amazon, $33; Jess Brown Dolls, $180+Moulin Roty Rabbit Ernest on Amazon, $25Mooshka Girls Doll on Amazon, $25.

05. Rattles. Similar to teethers, these are great toys to hand over to baby in the car, stroller orat home while playing in a bouncer. There are a ton of options, but here some of my modern favorites. Wonderworld Hexi Play Toy at AllModern, $17, Apple Park Organic Farm Buddies Rattle on Amazon, $14; Manhattan Toy Natural Skwish Rattle on Amazon, $13 (also available in color).

Additional Infant Play Toys: Manhattan Toy Classic Baby Beads on Amazon, $11 (also available in color)Manhattan Toy Winkel on Amazon, $13.

06. Exersaucer. Or Walker. Or Ride-on Toys. Okay, I am seriously considering going into the toy design business for the role purpose of creating an attractive, functional and fun baby exersaucer. Have you seen these things?! They’re a big ‘ole mess of plastic cheapness. I did come across this amazing (and sadly expensive) wooden play centre from a Canadian company, Three Pears. I love how simple the design is and that out easily converts from an infant play centre, to a toddler activity table (with chalkboard), to a sleek kid’s table. Unfortunately the Bobbin is not yet available in the States, although they’re working on it! Three Pears Bobbin Triple Play Centre, $549 CAD.

Other Items to Consider: Joovy Spoon Walker on Amazon, $100; KidCo Go Pod Portable Activity Seat on Amazon, $50Prince Lionheart Wheely Bug on Amazon, $86 (more options here);

07. Bath Toys. Don’t forget bath time! Aside from the traditional rubber duck, there are some really fun, modern toys that will making the bathing experience a special time. Kid O Whale Bath Toy at Target, $13Green Toys Stacking Cups on Amazon, $10.

08. Classic Toys. You’ll also want some of those classic baby toys – think of the abc blocks, push & pull animals, stacking rings and musical xylophones that we all grow up with. Personally, I favor traditional wooden toys and am very thankful for some great companies out there that are designing such well-made and attractive options. Wonderworld Wonder ABC Blocks at AllModern, $25Wonderworld Stacking Rings at AllModern, $18 (similar from Melissa & Doug)Hape Walk-A-Long Croc on Amazon, $22.

My Favorite Wooden Toy Companies: Melissa & Doug, Hape, MaximWonderworld, Plan Toys and Manhattan Toy.

09. Activity Center. Once she’s a little older, I love the idea of our daughter having this awesome activity center. Seriously, I think this thing is the coolest ever! Maxim EverEarth Garden Activity Cube on Amazon, $71.
